Comparison—it can be a thief of joy, but it can also be a tool that helps pave the way to success.   

The Key May Be Your Timeline  

While using the proven tools that many Zyia Executive Reps have perfected can help you grow, it’s important to remember that not everyone is or can be on the same timeline. Anyone can race to the top, but you could end up burned out when you get there because you expended so much time and energy in inauthentic ways.   

 Community is one of our four pillars, but have you contemplated what community looks or feels like to you personally? We might be reaching out to people or connecting—but in a very guarded way.   

  Ask yourself if you can have a successful business without authentic relationships and community within your team and network. You may need to be a little vulnerable and give yourself and others time to build trust.   

Real Community Means a Variety of Relationships  

It’s essential to understand that to help inspire a positive community doesn’t mean that everybody has to be best friends! You cannot control others, and you have no say over how they behave or the choices they make. The more you focus on being the best version of yourself you can be, the more peace you’ll bring into your life because it won’t matter what others are doing. You’ll still be able to find success through authenticity.   

Recognize that we have the blessing of a community, but at the end of the day, the only person I can control is me. Bring that focus back to yourself.   

You can take what you admire in someone else and implement those things into your Zyia business. But you’re a different person, with a distinct personality, problems, family, and friends. Encourage team members to work collaboratively. The only person’s expectations you should worry about are yours.   

Find that delicate balance between being a part of the community and knowing that your work needs to stand alone at the end of the day. A good leader inspires people to have confidence in the leader. But a great leader inspires people to have confidence in themselves. Build a team that is so inspired and confident that they will continue to grow independently.   

Shake that boss mentality, pass the baton, let people shine, kick them out of the nest!  

Now, give yourself credit for what you have done. It might not look like what another person has done—that’s ok! Stop letting your brain tell you you failed because you’re looking at someone else’s picture.   

Honesty Is the Best Policy  

Be honest about your expectations, and speak them aloud. Have you asked your upline or downline for what you need? Unspoken expectations lead to resentment and disappointment. If you keep things to yourself, you’re setting both you and others up for failure.  

Finally, you can focus on yourself and run your own race while taking as many people along with you.   

Keep going, and don’t ever quit.
