A Crucial Mindset Lesson For Your Avon Business
Have you ever looked at other Avon Reps and wondered why some just seem to be luckier than others? You might need this mindset lesson.
You feel like you’ve been trying so hard to make your Avon Business as successful as you want it to be.
But even though you see other Avon Reps having success, you’re just not seeing it for yourself.
Growing your Avon business is pretty simple.
There are only 4 main steps:
- Prospecting for new customers & recruits.
- Getting a brochure (either paper or digital) to every customer every campaign.
- Following up with every customer you gave a brochure to every campaign before you place your order.
- Take the order, submit it to Avon and deliver to your customer, or send them to your Avon Online Store to place their order
And then Rinse and Repeat.
It’s really that simple. You just do these 4 steps over and over again, and you will have a strong Avon business.
We have our Daily 8 System to help you work on the activities that will help you grow your business.
The Daily 8 system is a proven formula

Today We’ll Talk About A Crucial Mindset Lesson For Your Avon Business
Sometimes it does feel like other Avon Representatives are luckier than we are, or smarter, or…
If we’re not careful, we can easily fall into the life isn’t fair trap.
But here’s the thing…
The moment you start expressing excuses for your lack of success or failure to perform, that’s the moment you turn over your power to actually turn things around.
Here is a Wonderful Story That Teaches This Crucial Mindset Lesson
It’s a Story About Two Cousins
Two cousins grew up together in a small village in Southeast Asia.
Both boys were the same age and came from similar backgrounds.
But as they matured, small differences in their attitude toward work became more and more evident.
One cousin eventually became an advisor to the king, while the other found employment as an oarsman for the royal canoe service.
One evening, as the king and his court were making their annual tour of the kingdom, the canoe was landed for the night and the oarsmen were gathered around their cooking fire.
Tired, sore, and sunburned, the oarsmen grumbled as oarsmen sometimes do, with the one cousin doing most of the talking.
The Oarsman Cousin Started Complaining
“What an easy life those advisors have,” complained the cousin.
“We strain our bare backs in the hot sun all day long, while they sit under the canopy and talk. We can talk as easily as they! Do not we have intelligence, and wisdom, and experience? We would make fine advisors to the king! And yet it is we that toil to the point of exhaustion, and they who relax in the shade!”
The cousin went on like this for several minutes, not knowing that the king had paused during his walk in the trees and could hear everything the oarsman was saying.
The King Awakened The Oarsman Cousin
Later that night, when the whole camp was asleep, the king awakened the oarsman.
“A mysterious sound interrupted my sleep,” said the king. “Go up the hill and find out what is was.”
The oarsman obediently set off up the hill, then came back a few minutes later to report. “It is nothing of concern,” he said, “just a mother cat who gave birth to a litter of kittens.”
“What kind of cat?” asked the king.
The oarsman hadn’t taken notice, so he went back up the hill, and returned a short time later.
“Siamese,” he reported.
“How many kittens?” asked the king.
Once again, the cousin trekked up the hill, for he hadn’t bothered to note the size of the litter.
Soon he came back to the king.
“Six,” he replied.
“How many males, and how many females?” was the king’s next question.
Another hike up the hill, and the obedient oarsman returned with the answer:
“Three male, three female.”
“Very good,” said the king. “Now come with me.”
The King Now Asked the Cousin Who Was Advisor To The King
The oarsman followed the king over the sleeping advisors, where the other cousin was shaken awake.
“A mysterious sound interrupted my sleep,” said the king for the second time that night. “Go up the hill and find out what it was.”
Quickly the advisor went up the hill to investigate.
After several minutes, he returned and addressed the king. “It is of no concern,” he began.
“There is an overturned barrel at the top of the hill. Inside a Siamese cat has given birth to a litter of six kittens: three male and three female. The cat belongs to the mayor of the local village, who apologizes for the interruption of your sleep. He would be honored if you took the pick of the litter as a royal pet.”
Did You Get the Moral of This Mindset Lesson?
Based on human nature, it probably took several of these incidents before the oarsman got the picture.
But did you get it?
The attitude you take toward any venture directly affects your approach to it.
How you approach any endeavor greatly determines your likelihood of success.
And your success in your Avon business – or lack of it – has an equally direct effect on your attitude.
It’s all tied together, and it can be a spiral staircase up, or a spiral funnel down.
