Did you know… In Life & in Business we are constantly evaluating every decision, every situation, we live our days doing our best to avoid or decrease PAIN & bring in or increase PLEASURE?
I recall as a child doing errands and tasks for my Dad to gain his approval, his hand on my shoulder. Motivating of Pleasure. It can be said the fear of his disapproval was to avoid Pain.
In 2015 I was in my middle management job that was causing me great stress, enough it was manifesting in physical ways on my body and mentally (pain), along with feeling lack of recognition, lack of appreciation, lack of team play, all PAIN points.
All that PAIN had me very motivated to SEEK and be open to finding Pleasure; which I had discovered in very first MLM in 2014. Network Marketing satisfied many aspects that I wanted to be fulfilled; Such as Sisterhood, Community, Appreciation, Recognition.
The thing was I had no clue how to build a Network Marketing Biz, and I struggled, for lack of better words. Lack of sales, sponsoring, disappointing myself, feeling humiliated and embarrassed of my results to show friends and family, the No’s, the rejection over and over again! Thinking about this, again, these are ALL Pain Points!
Watch my live video where I share more about it here;
So… Back to the drawing board! Entering again; the Seeking of Pleasure… Like everything in life, we have two choices: Quit entirely aka Avoid Pain or Seek to Learn HOW and Succeed aka Chase Pleasure!!
And you all know which I chose to do right? Hee hee… I decided to do small daily actions that would give me pleasure!
Understand that the no’s were part of the process and to learn from them, don’t take them personally.
I surrounded myself with the right people, stayed on the coat tails of my chosen leaders.
I connected in groups, tied tight to my community and leadership.
“Secret to success is learning how to use pain and pleasure, instead of having pain and pleasure use you. Anthony Robbins”
Use pain to push you until pleasure pulls you…
A friend shared with me a few days back “Some people are so far removed from pleasure that they can’t even remember the feeling. Therefore, because they can’t even imagine it, the FEAR of more PAIN is their impetus for change!”
That is soo very true!! She also said she completed an activity and “It was painful or “felt” painful to go out of my comfort zone. BUT I DID IT ANYWAY and the feeling went away and I felt RELIEF”.
When we do something that is Painful aka Fear; it quickly flips to Excitement! Excitement can flow to Pleasure! So I’m curious, what is causing you pain that can nudge you in the right direction, be a motivator to seek pleasure!
This is what I love to do! Like I shared, I am a women’s business coach, network and affiliate marketer, author and I love to create that positive ripple in our day!
