Seriously! All formally announced and everything!
And truly, it’s all thanks to you scrumptious dahlings.
Because not only is this not a strictly MLM oriented blog, but (goddess confession alert!) I really didn’t do much to participate.
And here’s the somewhat awkward fact I learned about myself when these results came in…
I didn’t fully participate because I’d already decided I couldn’t win!
I decided a nanosecond after I heard of it, that the winner of a competition to crown The Top 50 MLM Blogs of 2010 would naturally Have to be an MLM oriented Blog!
Duh! Good morning, Captain Obvious!
So it was only at the nagging prompting of my darling friend Kimberly, that I even entered in the first place and casually mentioned it occasionally on FB.
And the gob-smackingly ironical twist to this tale?
Aforementioned darling friend Kimberly actually WON the competition, and … get this, dahlings, she doesn’t have an MLM oriented blog either!
So it got me to wondering …
How much better could I have done if I had truly gone for it?
How many other times have I not tried because I’d already decided I’d fail?
Not a pleasant subject to dwell on, but a very valuable lesson learned.
So has this ever happened to you, Dear Hearts?
Have you ever decided not to put any effort into something because you’ve made up your mind before even trying that you can’t achieve the end result?
And most importantly …
How do you Stop yourself from doing that?
Put on the kettle and let’s chat …
That’s what comment boxes are for!
