10 Jun WHY YOU NEED TO “TAKE THE SHOT”
Today’s blog is a written one to announce the winner of the gorgeous Gucci handbag from my booth at the Ultimate Women’s Expo this past weekend and also to share an important lesson that I learned there – a lesson that is appropriate for everyone, regardless of whether you entered to win the bag or not.
It was fascinating to observe the women who shyly walked by my booth and shook their heads no, when asked whether they’d like to enter to win a $1550 handbag and receive a free e-book to boost courage and confidence.
And then there were those who said, “No thanks, I never win anything so why bother!” It got me thinking…
Here’s what I know for sure: there is only one way to be absolutely certain that you will never win at anything, and that is to never enter, or to never try, or to never go all out and persist until you do. And of course I am not only referring to contests here — I am referring to all aspects of life.
As the great hockey player Wayne Gretzky so famously said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
Robyn Costa of Aliso Viejo, California sure is happy that she took a shot at entering a contest this past weekend! Yes, she is the lucky winner of the Gucci bag. Congrats Robyn!
What do you want to attempt that you are putting off? Is it time to take a shot at a goal or a longtime dream? The only way to ensure that it will never happen is to never go for it. NOW is the time!
I also want to take this opportunity to welcome so many amazing new members to the JS family! This is a busy month of travel for me but I will be back on video next week most likely from my next port of call, my beloved hometown of Vancouver, B.C. where I will be for the next few weeks.
