A Blessing in Disguise!

182983_20140228_122541_never_never_give_up_copyLast week I wrote a blog about Facebook after the band me for life from advertising on my business page.  They never gave me a reason for this lifetime sentence.  You can read about it here to catch up: Does Facebook Control Your Business?

First of all I must say, I was doing very well advertising my business on Facebook including booking lots of parties, getting a lot of one on one appointments, which lead to lots of Loyal Customers and was signing up new distributors on a regular basis.  It was easy and I could do it right from my computer, which was why I put so much time, money and effort into building readership of my page.  I wanted it to work and be easy and I accomplished that goal.

After being band from advertising I decided to look into Google Adwords Express.  I created a ad, picked a budget and submitted it to Google and it was approved.  A few days later in the middle of the night, emails started coming in from Google saying that my ad was on hold because they felt our replicated website was making false claims, which it isn’t.  I got a series of emails over about 5 minutes and the final one said my website was banded and I could never advertise the address ever again.  I was trying to sleep and couldn’t even respond to what they were saying.  All I could think was “This is unbelievable!”

Wow! What was going on?  I knew I wasn’t doing anything wrong so maybe someone was targeting our company, It Works! Global.  It was happening on Facebook.  No one in my company can post our websites because Facebook believes they are “Spam”.  This started last year some time.  This kind of thing starts to happen when a company has explosive growth and has a product that is over the top popular like ours does.

For two weeks I didn’t have any business…zero…nadda…nothing!  In a month that I was hoping to promote and get a huge bonus, my business had flat lined!

I had gotten comfortable with all the business I was getting from Facebook and that was where my focus was.  Not a smart idea, in retrospect.  When I got blocked from Google Ads I started to think that maybe the Universe was trying to tell me this wasn’t for me and I should quit the business.  When you get that many road blocks so quickly it could be a sign.  I wasn’t getting any business and I was being stopped ever direction I turned.  Maybe quitting was what I should do.

Ah, but I am not a quitter!  I am also very stubborn.  Don’t tell me no, don’t tell me I can’t so something because my mode of operation is to rebel.  I believe there are multiple solutions to every problem and no one is going to stop me when I am on a mission.  I become even more unstoppable when someone or something is saying “no”.

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do but I knew I had to refocus and not look at what wasn’t working.  When you look at what isn’t working you just create more of what isn’t working. If I did that, I might as well just quit.

So I changed my mindset away from the not working, away from lack consciousness and toward what I knew was possible and I asked the universe to show me the way. I am in a business that is exploding, people want what I have and I just need to find those people.  Sounds easy enough.

As soon as I shifted my thinking to seeing the possibilities, my phone started ringing.  People were calling me from no where, to sign up to be customers, to have parties and to buy Body Wraps.  In the first several days I sold 15 wraps when in the two weeks before that I had sold zero.  People were calling me to become business partners in my business and they were finding me on Google and I wasn’t paying anything! People I had talked to in the past were following up with me. I was getting messages from my Facebook business page without advertising at all.   Google and Facebook were saving me money and my business was alive.

The other thing I started doing was jumping for joy and saying “Thank You” every time I got a new customer, sold a wrap, had a phone call about the business.  Gratitude is magnetic and when you are grateful the universe sends you more of what you are grateful for.  Now I was thanking Facebook and Google for blocking my way because I was seeing other ways to go.

Since I changed my mind doors have opened for me with new ways to grow my business that I hadn’t thought about before.

What I learned from the experience is when challenges show up look at them as opportunities for expansion.  When you open up to possibilities magic happens.  I think I had gotten so focused on working Facebook that I had shut down the possibilities that were out there waiting for me.  It is one thing to focus and another to be so focused you miss seeing what might be available around you.

When you are open you will find that something better is always right around the next corner.  Keep your eyes open for the magic!

Creating a Dream Board that is alive on Pinterest!

imgres

I love the idea of creating dream boards.  If you have seen the movie The Secret  I am sure you remember the story that John Assaraf told about manifesting the exact home that was on one of this Vision Boards.  A dream board is a collection of images that represent the things you would like to manifest in your life.

Your ability to manifest what you want and create the life you dream of living can take a quantum leap forward when you create a Vision Board and put your attention on it daily. Creating a Vision Board is a fun and creative way for you to become clear on your dreams and desires and transform them into reality. We become what we think about and our lives are created from our thoughts.

  • A vision Board helps us to become very clear about what we want
  • A Vision Board makes your goals visible and keeps them in front of your eyes
  • A Vision Board reminds you of what you want
  • A Vision Board allows you to choose your goals
  • A Vision Board reminds you of what you are working for
  • A Vision Board keeps you in a positive mood – as you put your attention on it you will feel yourself receiving what you desire
  • A vision Board allows you to create a purpose in life

Dream boards can be created on a board with images you cut out of magazines or created on-line with a special program such as the one Oprah has.  Oprah’s Dream Board link.  I have made many dream boards over the years but the problem I have always had is they are so static.  I needed life and movement in my dreams as I think we all do.

Along came Pinterest!  At first I couldn’t figure out how to use Pinterest and couldn’t see the value in it.  When I finally learned from a friend how to use it I love it!   Recently I discovered that they have a “secret” board function where you can create boards that no one can see.  That is when it dawned on me that Pinterest Secret Boards would be the perfect dream board!!

A Pinterest board looks like this:

I created two secret boards for two things I am focusing on that I want to manifest.  I wanted separate boards to keep the intention pure and more focused.   I use images from Google  and videos from YouTube to build my boards.  Under each pin I write an affirmative statement that pertains to what I want to manifest.  Each time I add a new pin it adds to the energy and aliveness around the intention.   I can get into great detail about I what I want through images and statements.  This was not possible in the other formats.

With my secret boards I am creating a magnetic vortex that will manifest my desires quickly!

So imagine creating a secret Pinterest board just focused on your business.  You can name your board something like ” I am in the Magnetic Process of Exploding my Business” so that the name is focused on exactly what you want.  Through images and affirmative statements you can explode and expand the energy going into your business and stay positively focused on what you want to create.  It is all about energy so the point it to create a board that resonates the vibration that you want the Universe to respond to.  It is also very important to keep your dreams to yourself so that the energy doesn’t get diluted, so the secret boards are the perfect media.

Try it and let me know what happens! I will keep you posted on what is happening with mine!

Here is the link to my Pinterest Boards.  No you won’t be able to see my secret boards!
