Almost done! Woohoo!!! And our topic for today is… tah-dah!

Uhmm… Can we skip this part?

The challenge for today entails doing something we fear. Very challenging, huh? Let’s see.

Let me tell you a little secret. In all my articles and in my job, I know I may sound that I’m confident. Actually I’m not. In fact, I’m scared of people (although my work is always, ALWAYS related to customer service). I am too scared to approach people because, number one: I fear REJECTION! Rejection is such a big word for me because it can bruise my ego. I believe I’m not the only one suffering from this kind of fear.

Usually, I will let opportunity pass me by, especially if the job description includes ‘ME’ calling out to the clients or I’m the first one to approach the client. I know being a sales person is very rewarding, but if you will offer me that kind of job… hmmm… I think I’ll pass. Next job order please!

______________________

Recently, I received a great news from my manager. Finally, I’m a licensed Financial Advisor! Woohoo! Wait! So that means, I’ll start doing the field work. That means, I have to approach people. That means, people will start running away from me because they think I’m about to sell them something. That means, I will be treated like network marketers. That means, I will be rejected over, and over, and over, and over… time and time again. Wow! What a bunch of positive thoughts I got there!

I have so many things that I fear relating to this financial solutions career that I’m trying to pursue, due to different factors, which I will discuss on a separate blog in the near future. 😉 . I’ve seen it worked for other people and I wish for it to work for me as well, because it’s a noble profession that I can truly be proud of. For me, it’s not going to be job but a noble cause. Did I say noble?

BUT! To achieve success in that kind of career, there are a lot of work that needs to be done within ‘ME’. I have to polish my skills. I have to polish how I convey messages to other people, because I’m prone of being misinterpreted. Whew! I know. I know. It’s not something new. But it is what it is and I know I have to get rid of my fears. I just have to strengthen myself in every means and ways I can possibly do.

So what are my activities for today that will help me conquer my fear:

  1. I will go back to the list I created during our training (it’s a list of prospect clients within my circle)
  2. I will imagine encountering those people and meeting them face to face (yayks!)
  3. I will create my script (yes, script) so I won’t stutter or I will not lose control of my thoughts during presentation
  4. Schedule appointments with prospect clients
  5. Good luck to me!

Or maybe I can ask a friend to help me out… I think that may help.

Now I’m left with no other options but to go through the process. Deep breathing… relax! 🙂 Yes! I’m saying this with conviction while trembling! It’s time to act despite of fear.

I’m gonna do this! Go! Go! Go

Wish me luck guys! I’ll do these things today.

How about you? What are the things you fear that you would like to conquer today?

With love and respect,

Ms. Rai

Create Something Every Day Challenge: Day 5

Woohoo! The challenge is almost done. Thanks to Kara Gott Warner, her Create Something Every Day Challenge has been a great inspiration to me. The principle for today is one of my personal favorites because it allows me to create the things that I want starting from my thoughts.

What do I really want to have? What do I really want to achieve?

I strongly believe in the saying:

Thoughts are things.

That’s why I love thinking, writing, and visualizing everything I wanted to have in my life. I imagine my dream house and lot, my car, my dogs, my office in my own home, my kids’ own room, the clothes I wanted to have, etc. Then I visualize them, as if everything’s already existing. I see each picture in my mind and I get excited. My feelings are elevated to a whole new level and I will keep that feel-good feeling and wait for them to materialize work on them one by one.

Again, I believe we create our own reality, and I strongly believe that I will achieve everything that I wanted to achieve. I believe I can achieve them all, but not all at the same time. I will get there one step at a time, and I think that’s what makes my journey more meaningful and AWESOME! It’s exciting isn’t it?

How about you? How do you create your dream and your reality? How do you picture out the things you wanted to have and achieve?

With love and respect,

Ms. Rai

Create Something Every Day Challenge: Day 4

Have you ever read an article or a blog that doesn’t make any sense to you? Forget about grammar and spelling. Have you ever read an article that leads you to nowhere? I have, and I don’t want my blogs to be anywhere near that. Why? Simply because my audience (if ever I have one) deserves something better.

When I write blogs, I see to it that I have a certain concept in mind and I’m not just throwing out words. I wanted to make sure that my readers (if ever I have one) can take home some of the thoughts I’m sharing. I don’t want my articles to be a source of hatred, ill-feeling, and ugly misinterpretations. I want my blogs to have at least a positive impact to other people’s lives.

Surely, I talk a lot. But before I speak, I see to it that my thoughts are grounded by facts, not gossips, or at least it’s grounded by first-hand experience. I don’t want my readers to become shock absorbers. They don’t deserve reading rants and receiving those negative vibes. As much as possible, I write materials that gives out positivism.

I want to be a creator. That includes creating concepts that serve people; something where they can learn, and as much a possible, help them produce another concept that can serve them better and others who are following them. Again, I’m a strong believer of Law of Attraction, that’s why I choose to write more about positive things than having negative outputs. I may be writing some things that may not look good at first, but then again, every bad situation leads to something better ( that’s just my personal belief 😛 )

Anyway, That’s it for today.

With love and respect,
