Inspired By The Greatest Showman

I grew up singing and acting. Musicals were my heart beat. The score. The costumes. The story. Everything.

It has been awhile since I have been so inspired by a musical soundtrack.

The Greatest Showman literally has given me all the goosebumps and heart eyes. I am obsessed and I haven’t even seen the movie yet. Ha!

Perhaps it is because nearly every song speaks to this heart of mine as I choose adventure and dreams over neat and tidy.

I was taking a break from doting on a sick child yesterday and scrolled Facebook (I know…..) and I saw a post where women were lamenting how there would be no Christmas for them because they were broke. And stuck. And tired of feeling that way.

I have a lot of opinions about Christmas and money, but that is not what this is about.

My heart broke because there are a lot of people who are feeling this way.

Broke.

Stuck.

Hurting.

Not sure where to step next. Or what to do. Or how to get out of the pit they find themselves in.

I think why I am so in love with the storyline and music of The Greatest Showman is because it is about a man who is down and out and tired of struggling, and decided to put feet to his dreams, as crazy and illogical as it appeared. As much as people disapproved and hated what he was doing, he still did it, and it changed his life.

Changed his family’s life.

Changed others who were needing that kind of hope and encouragement and permission to dream for themselves.

With my new hair business, I know people don’t approve. But I go forth knowing it can change my life, and offer permission to other women to dream and have a business of their own. No, I don’t think Shampoo will change the world. Or your family.

But I Believe you can. And you will. Women will.

To create their own stories for their families and get out of the pit they may find themselves in.

Where are you? Are you struggling? Are you sick and tired of being in the same cycle, year after year, wishing it could get better, but it doesn’t?

Here is the thing: you have to decide to move. To change. Go there. Dream HUGE, crazy, illogical dreams.

Then go put feet on those dreams. Give them legs. YOU are the one who can make them reality. Your actions, your very steps and decisions will help them come alive.

Can I invite you to go there with me? To dream big? To join me?

It’s all an adventure that comes with a breath-taking view….”-Tightrope from the Greatest Showman Soundtrack.

Think about your dreams. Go listen to the soundtrack. Share with me your dreams.

And then let’s go.

Do a New Thing

I had already shared awhile back that I was leaving Beachbody. I had shared that I really felt God was leading me away, and also, because I really have felt for the longest time that I was on the wrong seat on the bus.

Let me explain.

As someone whose job it was to help people reach their health and fitness goals with the programs and tools I offered, I started to really take notice that while people were encouraged by my words and my actions, I was not the one they went to in order to REACH those health goals. They would go somewhere else. They would hire a personal trainer, join a gym, try a different product or program, whatever. And that is not me blaming them, whatsoever. They were doing their due diligence in finding the best solution for them.

I was just not that solution. And that is okay to admit. I have never, ever wanted to be a personal trainer. I had a Cize Live certification, but really, that was as far as I was going to go with any type of fitness certification. I had no interest in being a fitness professional.

So it really made me think about whether or not I was on the right seat on the bus. My answer came to a defeating: NO.

I also realized that in this business, because I wasn’t gaining customers (people who wanted me to help them with their fitness goals), most of my income was coming from my team. And that was not the reason why I joined. While I realize with Direct Sales/ MLM’s that is part of it, building wealth by building a team, I didn’t want that to be the only way. It wasn’t right to me. The only way you are really successful is if your team is successful. That is a good thing. But I also wanted customers. I wanted to have a business helping people and get them the results they were paying for. That mattered to me.

So it made sense to walk away. And be open to new opportunities that fit who I am a little bit better.

To provide my family with the financial portion that we needed (and we do need it).

To build relationships with other women.

To have fun.

And my favorite part: to possibly do it with my sister.

And I found it in Vegan hair care.

Hair care? Seriously?

Yes. To be honest, this is outside of my comfort zone. It requires being more social. And leaving my house, possibly. And actually talking to friends and hanging out over wine and coffee and not be a hermit. Or cling to staying indoors.

But the opportunity is huge. And honestly……it is just shampoo. That’s it. It doesn’t require people to change their habits or behavior or force them to adjust their budget to add something they have never had before. It is just fun. It is just shampoo.

I have been using it on myself and my family the last couple of weeks, and I can say it had made a difference in my own hair. It feels so much cleaner and more manageable. But that is all I will tell you.

Because this isn’t really about my old business or my new business.

It is about being okay with walking away from something that was good in your life, but realizing it may not fit what you need anymore, and being brave to pursue or open to something new. That can be anything in life.

Just as many of us will leave good jobs for greater ones, for a myriad of reasons, it is the same with everything else.

We pray. We weigh the pros and cons. We try. We fail. We win. We learn. We grow. That is how it goes.

So, if you are stuck spinning your wheels, and you know something needs to change, but you aren’t sure how….be open. Be praying. Be brave. Try. Fail. Then try again.

And be okay with walking away from good to get to Great.

Love,

Tiffany
