Today

Today


Today has so much going for it, it’s here, it’s now and it belongs to you.
This moment, right now is the only time that comes with a guarantee. Learn today to be kind to everyone–

I attended an event today hoping I would take some value from the instructor into my Home Based business, instead I left feeling everything but valued. I learned that making $100 million dollars is really not that impressive especially if you lack integrity, morals and most of all kindness and empathy.

My husband is an amazing example of a man who has worked hard and been blessed financially. However, I’ve never heard him talk about his finances — Frenchie spreads joy and happiness. Some may say–like the presenter today was trying to say “He’s joyous and happy because he has money.” However I think the opposite, find your happiness and the rest will come if that is what you desire to work for.

I’ve met some cocky people in my life but today, today this guy earned the award. He actually said to us “I can read people by their body language, how they sit, hold their head, lean forward or backward etc” Then looked at me and said “You don’t know how to sell yourself, you don’t know how to smile and your eye’s are sad.” Whoa….I stood up said “I cannot believe you just said that to me.” and I walked out of his seminar. He tried to back peddle his way out, but the words spewed from his mouth had already done irreversible damage–not for me, I know who I am and where I am going. With just a few words this man bruised himself — his assistant called to apologize for him and I told her if he was really sorry for what he said he would have called me himself–So he did–it was a lame apology, not sincere and made me even more determined to move forward.

I’ve been waiting for today, even though I might have been calling it something else, like ‘tomorrow’ or ‘someday’ I’ve even called it ‘the future’ But actually today was a gift and the best thing to do with a gift is open it, delight in it, and appreciate it for what is is–I’m glad that I’ve learned to surround myself with good people, nice people, people who believe in being loving, caring and sharing.

I’ll end this by saying tomorrow when you wake up-begin something new, something that makes you stretch, take baby steps do something small or something BOLD. Do something that will grow bigger with time. Today might just be the day you’ve been waiting for–the day you learn how brave you are, how far you’ve come. Start here, start now, embrace today.

    • thank you Aaron–Nerium is so much more than instant results–the culture and family within the Nerium Family has taught me more about myself, who I am and who I want to be by stretching my inner self to believe in dreams and not fall for the get rich ‘quick’ scheme. Jeff Olson taught me that.

  • Wow ,Monya
    So powerful and so real.I knew there was a strong reason why I immediately felt a powerful connection to you.I feel the very same way .Exactly what you expressed.My life changed so much since being in the Nerium family. The money will come.The person I am today ,money can’t buy.The people we are ,still growing and truly living life is because we made a very smart choice. It is so true that Jeff truly cares about everyone of us.
    Can’t wait to go together to France. Love you?

    • Julie–Thank you–Sometimes if we take the uncomfortable situations and learn from them with a positive spin it makes all the difference–I won’t let ‘that man’ occupy any more space in my brain–Jeff Olson is a true giant in spirit, he has been blessed with financial freedom by making mistakes and learning from them–My husband is also very financially prosperous, but has also made mistakes and instead of giving up–learned from them and remained humble–Humility and being teachable are a secret combination so many people forget. See you France

  • Monya, thank you for sharing. I’m not sure I would have had the courage to speak up. I’ll remember this if I ever find myself in a similar situation.
    Your courage and strength has inspired a lot of us in Nerium.

    • Lynn–thank you, there are somethings I just can’t sit idly by and let go….this was one of them. He had no business teaching that class–very insensitive and arrogant.

I'd Love To Hear From You
