Today we have a guest post from Judy Beckman, Independent Sales Representative Nussentials.

Is pain keeping you from living the life you would like to live? Does it govern your work, activities, personal life; and, prevent you from living your life to the fullest?

Joint pain is very common. It can be mild, causing soreness after certain activities or it can be severe, making even limited movement painful.

pain

Joints form the connection between bones. They provide support to help you move. So, any damage to the joints from disease or injury can cause pain and interfere with your movement.

Knee pain is the most common, followed by shoulder and hip pain; but, pain can affect any part of your body including ankles, feet and hands. Joint pain can range from mildly irritating to debilitating. Even short term pain can affect the quality of your life. The goal is to reduce pain & inflammation and preserve joint function.

How do you do that? Stay in motion, watch your weight, get in the habit of doing low impact exercise; and, keep bones strong with diet and nutrients that feed your body.

My name is Judy Beckman. After retirement from traditional business, I was introduced to Nussentials, a network marketing company providing quality, natural health products.

judyb_health&wellness-185x195Upon trying the products, seeing the financial opportunity while desiring the flexibility allowing us to spend time with our family, my husband and I became an Independent Sales Representative. I’ve been with the company 8 years and feel we are making a difference in our personal health as well as helping many others improve their health.

Nussentials has 2 products that address joints and tissues, naturally. RUN is the support that can make a difference in relieving joint pain by reducing inflammation and providing nutrients to the joints themselves. Basically, it is a natural anti-inflammatory from 7 plants that target inflammation.

The active ingredients in RESTORE go hand in hand with RUN in supporting healthy joints by hydrating tissues, lubricating joints, restoring the cushioning of joints; and, forming and repairing cartilage. RESTORE has 9 natural ingredients, including Hyaluronic Acid to plump up tissues.

Have you written your success story? If a national news outlet sent a reporter to create an award winning feature story about you and your greatest successes, what would it look, feel and sound like? I’m serious – what would you want to proudly share with the world?

Was it easy to create a great success story or was it difficult to visualize? It may be difficult to appreciate your greatest success story if you unconsciously, and maybe even consciously, feel you aren’t currently achieving many successes. If you aren’t able to appreciate or even picture yourself succeeding, it’s difficult to visualize yourself achieving a great success story.

Success is as much a state of mind as it is an actual event.

If you’re having a difficult time picturing your “ultimate” successes, let’s begin with the small ones, the ones you achieve everyday and probably aren’t even realizing or appreciating.

Here are a few ways to acknowledge successes:
1. As soon as you achieve a “to-do” on your daily to-do list, write it down as a success. Why? Believe it or not, each small daily accomplishment is taking you one step closer to achieving your greatest success story.

2. At the end of the day, acknowledge the most satisfying accomplishment for that day. Take the time to acknowledge any accomplishment that has taken you one positive step toward your goals – it can be small or large. Writing down a daily success is alerting your mind to become even more aware of finding and acknowledging your personal and professional successes.

3. At the end of the week write down your greatest accomplishment for that week. Acknowledge and appreciate it for the positive success it is.

4. At the end of the month write down the one accomplishment for which you are most proud. Why are you so proud of this accomplishment? By appreciating your success for the true accomplishment it is, you are giving yourself the ability to experience the emotion of success. Remember, success is as much a state of mind as it is an actual event.

Your greatest success story is being written day by day, week by week and month by month – it’s up to you to appreciate and acknowledge all the successes along the way. Acknowledge the self-satisfaction that comes along with accomplishing even the smallest successes. These day-to-day successes are the ones leading you toward your greatest success story!
 
I can’t wait to read your success story,

The subtitle of Nice Girls Don’t Get The Corner Office by Lois Frankel caught my attention: 101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabotage Their Careers. I am sure most of us will discover at least one “unconscious mistake” we can identify with and to which we can relate.

nice girls revised 2014

I had a friend say to me, “I wish I’d read this book twenty years ago.” Yes, it is that kind of book – the type that can save you a few missteps along the road to success. I believe women in business have come a long way but, there are still unconscious traits, habits and mannerisms that hamper our being taken seriously as powerful career women.

Lois Frankel is an executive coach and approaches writing this book as if she were working with a coaching client. First there is the Self-Assessment, then an analysis of the quiz answers and finally, suggestions for overcoming some of unconscious mistakes that may be sabotaging our careers. The author is systematic, straightforward and knows how to apply what she is suggesting to the “real-world.”

Here are the chapter titles:

Chapter 1 – Getting Started – This is where you’ll find a Self-Assessment.

Chapter 2 – How You Play the Game – This chapter talks about likening business to competitive sports and the importance of knowing how to win. Mistakes 1-14.

Chapter 3 – How You Act – The focus here is on some of the habits we’ve learned that are hindering us as women in business. Mistakes 15 – 30.

Chapter 4 – How You Think – Do you have the mindset of success? Mistakes 31 – 44.

Chapter 5 – How You Brand and Market Yourself – Realizing that you are the brand.

Chapter 6 – How You Sound – How we communicate in business situations can determine our success level. Mistakes 56 – 72.

Chapter 7 – How You Look – This about more than dress and makeup, this chapter also covers gestures, facial expressions, etc. Mistakes 73 – 86.

Chapter 8 – How You Respond – This is a powerful chapter about recognizing how we consciously and unconsciously respond to inappropriate business situations. Mistakes 87 – 101.

As I mentioned earlier, Chapter 1 contains a Self-Assessment. I recommend you make some quiet time to answer the questions and study your answers carefully. This forty-nine question quiz is the beginning of the “aha” process.

This book has been revised and I’d recommend the newer edition published in 2014. Comes in paperback and ebook.

I believe we can all benefit from this book whether we’re beginning a career or business, currently in a leadership position or have a daughter about to enter the workforce.

The only drawback to this book for me, was that it was written in the negative, focusing on mistakes – I’m not one who responds well to negativity.

On my Sharon Michaels Author Facebook page I posted a writing challenge. I took up the challenge and here is a favorite vacation from many, many years ago.

Writing Challenge - July 2017

Growing up my family didn’t take “vacations.” We traveled to visit relatives, but I don’t recall any of those trips labeled a vacation. As I became an adult I wanted to go places outside my city. That’s when I discovered I had a hunger for travel.

A year out of high school I was fortunate to secure a job in the reservation’s office of a major airline. There my travelling adventures began. When you and your mother are offered a free trip to San Francisco, how can you say no?

To say I was a white knuckle flyer on my flight to San Francisco is an understatement. I think I held my breath the entire flight. As an employee, mom and I were able to fly first class. In the late 1960’s first class was definitely FIRST CLASS. Mom had a wonderful time eating, listening to music, talking with the flight attendants, sleeping – you get the point. Me, I was hanging onto my seat for dear life. I was thankful when we landed and my feet touched solid ground.

I remember we took a taxi cab tour of the city, ate in fancy restaurants, shopped in department stores we’d only read about in magazines and absorbed the atmosphere of San Francisco. I’ll never forget seeing the Pacific Ocean for the first time. I was awe struck. Even after so many years, the memories of discovering San Francisco are etched in my mind and heart forever.

By the way, the flight home was better. I was quickly getting used to being a “world traveler.”

That first flight and introduction to exploring new cities opened the floodgates of my desire to travel the United States and learn more about our country. I’m fortunate to say I’ve been to forty-four of our fine states by either plane, train or car. Many of these adventures I was able to share with my mother. I will always cherish those memories – they’ve all become favorite vacations.

Here’s to all your favorite vacations and special memories.

You are probably, to some extent, living out your parents and relatives beliefs and habits about money, abundance and prosperity. Ask yourself this; are these beliefs serving me well today?

For many, financial success and the need to struggle seem to go hand-in-hand. Many of us equate abundance, wealth and prosperity with physical and emotional struggle and even sacrifice. If locked deep in the unconscious mind you believe that acquiring and enjoying financial success equates to struggling, than when you actually do achieve your financial goals you may self-sabotage financial successes.

Making financial success a struggle is a self-sabotaging behavior.

If finances are a consistent struggle then you have emotionally conflicting beliefs about making, saving and enjoying money.

As a child you may have been unconsciously made to feel guilty about success and wealth. “Eat all your food, there are starving children in the world.” Or, “Nice people finish last.” Or, “You can’t be rich and honest too.”

Believe it or not, some of us unconsciously feel more comfortable in not succeeding financially than actually succeeding and enjoying prosperity. Why? Programmed into the unconscious mind are thoughts and beliefs that it is uncomfortable and lonely at the top, whereas struggle on the other hand, often brings sympathy and/or attention from friends and family.

Research has shown that most people earn within ten to twenty percent of their best friend’s income. In other words, we’d rather keep our friends than cope with the uncertainty of success and prosperity.

Think of financial success in terms of a comfort zone. A comfort zone is the boundary within which we are emotionally most comfortable and safe. We often and unconsciously begin to sabotage those things that take us out of this emotional safe zone.

Even as adults we often feel most comfortable within the financial boundaries set by parents, the environment in which we grew up and our expectations of our own financial worth. Our childhood standard of living has most often become our adult comfort zone.

Ending financial self-sabotage and expanding a comfort zone takes some time and effort. You’ll want to do a soul-searching look at what is working financially in your life and what isn’t. Then honestly ask yourself if you’re willing to continue to live the way you’re living or willing to change and grow emotionally. Look at the long-term pay-off of change and growth – a life of financial freedom.

A key to success is knowing and committing emotionally and physically to what you want, forming a workable step-by-step plan and being emotionally ready to handle the stumbling blocks along the way. It’s important to remember too that these stumbling blocks are often emotionally uncomfortable and even self-sabotaging. A commitment to ongoing growth is a powerful element to long-lasting change.

You have the power to transform what isn’t working in your life into something more empowering and financially rewarding. Success is a choice!
 
Please, share your thoughts and comments with us. We’d love to hear from you.
