Believe In Yourself

Good morning friends!
Happy Friday!
This morning while browsing Facebook a friend of mind posted this and it really struck a cord…
I AM A CHAMPION. I was designed to do great things! I will not settle for average, because the average is check to check, tired, and obese. My fear of average is larger than my fear of rejection! I will do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to bring Vision to Reality. I am committed, and because I am committed, I am trustworthy. I am part of a Championship Team! Together we’ll share this message of Hope, Health, and Financial freedom, an for those that answer the call…. I am READY, to lead the charge!

Yup I sure as heck am! 
I was designed to do great things!
 True and EVERY ONE OF YOU are too! I 100% whole heartily believe that. 
Since being involved with the company I am with and building my own business I have been surrounded by some amazing people. People who want nothing but the best for not only themselves and their families but for me as well. I am CONSTANTLY in contact with so many amazing people who are all so willing to help in anyway they can. 
Yesterday one of my mentors called me -Coach CJ Stockel- and asked me if I would speak on our team call. ME?!? To say I was speechless is an understatement. I was humbled that Coach Stockel would think I was someone that everyone on the team needed to hear from. I said I would love to. Enter panic. My mind started to turn before I even got off the phone about what to talk about. Thankfully Coach asked me to speak about belief.
 When I asked him why he simply said 
“Because Tuesday night you learned the power of belief because you did not believe in yourself.”
He was right friends. Tuesday night I had no belief in myself what so ever.
Tuesday night I had a mixer to go to. 
Not only did I have to go to it but I had to LEAD it. 
Scared was not even the start of it. See the truth of the matter is until Tuesday I have never even been to a mixer. Why? Because there was never any being held in my area for me to attend. I had no idea what to do or say. I spent all day Tuesday doing what I do best. Learning how to do the mixer. I got home from work Tuesday night I showered and got ready and the anxiety set in. I started firing off text messages, Facebook messages and phone calls to people I knew would help me through this. 
I sent text messages to Mr. Big Truck saying I was freaking out. 
What did he do? He believed in me and he cheered me on. You got this babe you are gonna rock it! Go do what you do best! You got this! 
I called Danielle. My number one cheerleader and mentor in the company. Girlfriend told me to take a deep breath go out there and share with them my message. She told me she believed in me and knew I could do it.
I shot Jesse Reynolds another mentor of mine a Facebook message saying I was freaking out and needed a pre-game talk. What did he do? He gave me this video to go watch…
When I was done watching him I said that made me laugh. His response…
Now just relax and bring your message of better health and finances with strength. Paint a vision of what is possible. You have what others are looking for. You are going to crush it!”
Finally I called Coach Stockel. When he called me back and asked me what was up I told him what was about to happen and I was nervous and scared. 
What did he do? Coach Stockel stopped me before I could finish speaking and said no no, he actually screamed STOP IT!
I couldn’t help but chuckle at that because I has just finished watching the video Jesse sent me. Ironic? I don’t think so. He poured into me the belief that I needed. The belief I was lacking to go out and do what he knew I could do. I’m not gonna lie someone I look up to and respect immensely in this company who barely even knows me had me in tears -not even sure if he knew this but if you are reading this now Coach you had me in tears!- because he believed in me. He knew I could do it even though I had my own self doubt. 
I set off on my nervous, scared “merry” little way and went to my mixer and rocked it! I left there feeling awesome! I went in shared what was on my heart and did the best I could do! I was more than pleased with what happened. 
So what am I getting at here?
You yes YOU are meant to do great things. We are all meant to do great things. We will all doubt ourselves at some point along the way but if you just believe in yourself you will go places. You will do what you want. You will get where you want. You just need to believe. 
Believe in yourself friends because I believe in YOU! 

  Hugs, Nikki
