Reclaim Your Confidence In Yourself And Your Avon Business
The ability to set goals and achieve them requires mustering up the confidence and courage to take responsibility for your life.
That involves putting yourself and your business first.
By putting yourself first, you are simply making it a priority to take care of your mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
This allows you to have what it takes to build a highly successful Avon business!
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
When followed consistently, the Daily 8 Plan will help you maintain the consistency required to build a thriving team and an exponentially expanding residual income.
Instead of working 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week, your goal is to capture 8 POINTS a day, 5 days a week for a total of 40 POINTS per week.
Follow this plan consistently for 90-days and teach your team to do the same. At the end of 90 days, REPEAT and then REPEAT again. This is your Daily Method of operation.
The real secret to your Avon Business success is that there is NO SECRET!

Today We’ll Talk About Reclaiming Your Confidence!
Creating the business and the lifestyle that you desire is no one else’s responsibility but yours.
You cannot do that if you keep getting in the way of yourself by thinking and caring too much about others.
No doubt, caring for the needs of others is a natural human instinct, but it should never be to your detriment.
Many people are oblivious to the realization that they are the architects of their fortunes.
Their Avon business is going to succeed or not based on their own actions and beliefs.
They like to believe that putting the needs of others first, before their own, follows a universal moral code of conduct that you must adhere to, the failure of which makes them less human or less fortunate in life.
There are various reasons why people believe that putting the needs of others ahead of their own is the best and only way to live.
They may think people will stop liking them, or that being a tireless caregiver gives them a sense of purpose and fulfillment.
It’s that fear that people will stop liking them that holds many people back from a successful business.
Some sincerely feel responsible for others, or worse, they don’t feel worthy of making themselves a priority.
Whichever one of the above categories you may find yourself in, the good news is that you can reset your thinking.
Sadly, many people today suffer from thoughts of negating their own needs for the benefit of others.
This Thinking Is False
You need to unshackle yourself from them to successfully take charge of your life and fully accomplish your goals.
Rather than confining your thoughts to the preconceived notion of scary consequences that would supposedly befall you if you put yourself first, it is much more reassuring to focus on the numerous benefits guaranteed by putting yourself first.
The importance of this is tied to many wholesome benefits some of which include:
- Having that successful Avon business
- Being more productive
- Being happier and more joyful
- Having more energy
- Receiving more respect from others
- Improved relationships
- Experiencing less fear
- Suffering from less stress
- Feeling less resentment
- Experiencing less depressed
These are the key areas where you stand to benefit if you learn to put yourself first.
In this post, we will be looking at various healthy ways to put yourself first to gain all those wonderful benefits.
Strategies for Putting Yourself and Your Business First
Below are some healthy ways and tips that can help you develop the habit of putting yourself first without burning bridges or negatively affecting your energy, enthusiasm, and motivation.
Following them will help you achieve your goals, protect your mental and physical wellbeing, and overcome even your biggest challenges.
1 – Choose Your Purpose
Having a clear purpose in life and your business is essential.
It is the simplest, most basic thing every person needs to live a fulfilling and satisfying life.
Without a clear sense of purpose, you will end up living your life haphazardly.
Your purpose also makes it easier for you to say ‘No’ to people and things that do not align with your highest good.
Being aware of your life purpose and living it helps you identify those things that you need to do and when you need to do them.
By consciously reaffirming your purpose regularly, you will be inspired to multiply your efforts of taking action to see your purpose fulfilled.
2 – Live by a Vision
Putting yourself first also requires that you develop a clear vision of the life that you want to lead.
A vision keeps you focused on the journey of your life.
A clear vision will allow you to effectively prioritize your tasks and projects as the important things will align with your purpose and vision of your ultimate life.
To get clear about your vision, start by reflecting on these three questions:
- Who do I want to be?
- What do I want to do?
- How do you want to feel?
If you are unsure about your vision, ruminating on these questions will assist you in getting clear about what you want out of life.
3 – Set Personal Goals and Plan
Setting personal goals for yourself and your Avon business is a wise way to ensure your vision becomes a reality.
Goals make the realization of your vision much more achievable and will keep you motivated and focused on what you want out of life.
After taking the time to set your goals, set aside regular time to plan how you will achieve each of them.
4 – Learn New Skills
As you draw up your goals and develop your vision, you may find you need to learn new skills to make that vision come true.
Take some time to identify those areas in that you may be lacking in knowledge and skills.
Then take proactive steps to bridge the gap between your present level and your desired level regarding your knowledge and skills.
5 – Set Personal Boundaries
Setting personal boundaries is a skill you need to master when learning how to put yourself first because you will need it a lot on every step of your journey.
That is especially true if you tend to be a people-pleaser.
Others are used to you backing down and giving them what you want, so you’ll need to stay strong.
Look them in the eye and kindly say, “No, thank you.”
Even when they try to convince you to think otherwise, practice sticking to your decision by not getting pressured into consenting.
Setting personal boundaries is a vital skill because it enables you to defend your time and your rights which is an essential component of putting yourself first.
6 – Get Exercise
Putting yourself first isn’t only about goal setting and getting ahead.
It’s also about taking the time for self-care.
After all, if you don’t take care of your health, you’ll be unable to live your purpose or fulfill your life’s vision.
Put yourself and your health first by starting a program of regular exercise as soon as possible if you aren’t already doing so.
Engaging in a brisk daily walk is all that’s needed to improve and maintain your health.
7 – Eat Healthily
A healthy diet is equally as important as your body’s need to exercise.
Eating a nutritious diet is a huge part of taking care of your health and putting yourself first.
If your diet needs a major overhaul, take it one step at a time and work your way up to your ideal diet.
Remember, putting yourself first is about being kind to yourself.
8 – Sleep Enough
Getting sufficient sleep is another essential component of putting yourself first.
It is also necessary for boosting your performance and replenishing your energy.
By getting enough sleep, you will be better equipped to face the hurdles of the new day with greater confidence, energy, and enthusiasm.
Never allow anyone or anything to come between you and the need to get enough sleep.
9 – Schedule Relaxation
Sometimes you may be lacking the energy you need to live your ultimate life or have that successful Avon business.
Rather than trying to push through such times, it is better to maximize your relaxation and recovery.
You can engage in activities that will help reduce fatigue and replenish your energy, such as meditation, yoga, massage, or a quick nap.
If you find you run low on energy and motivation on a regular basis, start scheduling relaxation or downtime into your day.
A consistent relaxation routine will keep you on more of an even keel, so you don’t burn out.
10 – Journal
Apparently, you have 60,000 or more thoughts per day.
When you feel you have a lot to do and you are overwhelmed with too many ideas, journaling will help clear your head.
Journaling can also lead to better self-awareness, which is the foundation of putting yourself first.
You can journal any way you wish—with paper and pen or by using an app.
You might choose to journal every day or only when you feel overwhelmed or unsettled.
Whatever works for you is perfect.
11 – Practice Gratitude
Take some time each day to reflect on the positives in your life.
It’s easy to focus on the things we’d like to change and neglect to be appreciative of all we have.
It is very important to have a realistic perspective on your life and identify the positives for the sake of your health and wellbeing.
This is especially true with your Avon business and all the changes we’ve been through lately.
Sure, it has been frustrating for all of us, but those issues are mostly gone, and Avon is working through the rest of them.
Look for the good things in your life and your Avon business. There are some – you just need to find them.
As you find the time to write down and reflect on all the things you are grateful for each day, you will reduce your stress levels and naturally find more and more to be grateful for in your life.
Putting yourself and your Avon business first is something you must make a conscious effort to do.
You must fill your cup first, or you will end up with nothing left to give to others.
Even when you face negative reactions from people who feel that you are selfish for putting yourself first, remembering the tips outlined above and applying them will give you the wherewithal to go on regardless, have that thriving Avon business, and live the life that you desire.
