(KUTV) Salt Lake City – Founder of YES! Women’s Network, Sheila J. Davis, joined Kari & Dave on Fresh Living to talk about the purpose of YES! Women’s Network, the upcoming Mom’s Conference in Logan, and 3 Powerful Secrets to the Joy of You.

Sheila writes, “Women gladly take on the role of daughter, friend, wife, mother, and others that we love. This is a huge part of who we are and it’s a very important part. It changes us each time we come to a new stage in life and it’s wonderful! However, the average woman spends less than an hour and a half on themselves each week! That’s about 17 minutes a day. 51% of women say they don’t even do that. How can we be our best if that’s all we do for ourselves? To be the best at all of the things we love being, we must also be our very best self and find the joy of it. You know the saying: “Mom’s mood rules the house…” Well, what if mom felt the joy within herself every day?”

“There are 3 Powerful Secrets that can help women accomplish finding the JOY of being who they are in everyday life. When I told my daughter, who is not yet a mother about these secrets, she said, “Oh mom, everyone knows that.” I told her that yes, we all know these secrets, but we have put them so far down on the list of things we need to do that we have actually forgotten that we know them and that they are important. It’s time to bring the secrets back into the light. The first Powerful Secret we have forgotten is YOU. The little girl inside of you with the big dreams is still there, the dreams you had when you were a teenager are still there, the activities that you love doing when your life became about everything and everyone else is still there, and it’s okay to let YOU out.”

“It was like in that movie The Run Away Bride, she didn’t know what kind of eggs she liked because she just started eating and enjoying the kind of eggs that her boyfriends liked. She didn’t take the time to really find out what she truly enjoyed. Once she took just a few minutes to try different things and allow herself to listen to herself she was able to learn something about herself that she had not known or that she had forgotten. We make certain dinners for our families because we know they love that meal, we go out to eat at places that our friends or husbands love, we watch movies that our children like, etc. We do this because we love our family and it’s what we do and it’s important. So, outside of these decisions we have to make for those we love and support, what do we truly love and what do we truly find joy in each day for ourselves?”

The first step in finding the JOY of being YOU may sound simple, and yet it will surprise you how hard it is. The first step is YOU. Simply put, it’s time to stand up and introduce yourself to you again. Do this by re-reading old journals, thinking back to when you were little and what you wanted to do when you grew up, writing down lists of things that you forgot you loved or that you did, and one of the most important is putting you first every day. Set a morning routine that will work for you. I know what it’s like when you have 5 babies at home. You’re thinking: ‘There is no way I have time for myself in the morning.’ Well, there is, but it may seem hard at first. Get up just 15 minutes earlier and do something for yourself. It could be to wash your face so you feel refreshed, it could be to have a cup of hot chocolate in the quite of the morning, it could be to read for 10 minutes from a favorite book, it could be anything that you love or that could help you spend just 15 minutes with yourself in the morning. Which, by the way, will give you an additional hour and a half, thus doubling the time you’ve probably been spending doing something for yourself each week.”

Today on KUTV I spoke with Brooke and Caitlin about success. Is it achievable? How do you know you have reached it? Is it possible? How do you manage success every day? They were great fun to chat with! Watch the video HERE on KUTV.

Here’s my own story of success..

In July of 2017 I sat at my desk with a successful career as a digital marketer and online speaker/trainer. I had started as an entrepreneur in 2011 as a virtual assistant working with real estate agents. From there my skills and my business had grown into something that I truly enjoyed doing. Digital marketing along with branding, websites, sales funnels, and basically flipping online businesses was as thrilling to me as racing around a race track is for Indy drivers. I had found a bit of success. Yet…

As I sat there at my desk thinking over the last 5 years it hit me! I had basically created a job for myself. I was my boss and my boss didn’t give me any vacation time and if I wasn’t working I wasn’t getting paid. The name of my business was my name and if I wanted to retire… well, let’s just say that wasn’t going to happen.

Was this what success felt like?

This realization made me step back and take a 30,000-foot view of my business and my life. This is something I do in my own business every quarter and something I have all of my clients do as well.

“Success grows with you and you grow with Success!” – Sheila J Davis

It was true that I had worked with and helped thousands of virtual assistants build their businesses through my academy. I found true joy in working with them.

I loved my clients and enjoyed flipping their businesses. Working with them to create a powerful brand, improving or building their websites for increased revenue, showing them how to automate their business and creating sales funnels that are powerful and effective.

 

Somehow I felt empty.

Something was missing. It wasn’t just about money, it was about the impact and influence I had on the world. On the women specifically that I felt needed my help to achieve their success.

“If your bucket is empty, and there is a hole at the bottom, it’s time for change.” – Sheila J Davis

I knew something had to change, I just had no idea how fast and how amazing the process would be!

 

Time For a Mentor!

Over the next two months, I went on a journey to find where my success was and how to reach it. I worked with a brilliant and amazing mentor, Brooks Gibbs. He can tell you that my journey to find what success was to me was painful and incredible at the same time.

What Brooks helped me realize was that my passion to help and serve single women, military wives, and women who found themselves in a situation of, “Oh Crap! Now what?!” was possible!

Thanks to his guidance, patience, and willingness to help me serve my purpose in life I had discovered what success was to me! It was creating a network where women could find trusted resources, build relationships, network with each other, and even where I could create a non-profit to provide even more.

Truth be told, we have only just started and we have a long way to go. There is so much more! I’m thrilled, however, that my journey has lead me to where I am today!

 

YES! Women’s Network was born!

 

OFFICIAL LAUNCH!

For our official launch, we are having an online summit that 7 months ago I didn’t think was possible! After taking October through part of February off basically due to health and life happening, we are thrilled to have created such an amazing launch!

With my two fantastic new partners, Julie May (COO & Event Planner) and Leisa Watkins (Partner & Marketing Strategist) and the help of our amazing team Tracy Medeiros (Project Manager), Melania Macias (Administrative Support Specialist), and Cindy Cloninger (Graphic Designer and Virtual Assistant), the network is ready to officially launch and change the world!

 

 

We hand-picked 12 outstanding speakers who are at the top of their game when it comes to success. They can help you raise your game and raise your profits! Seriously, who doesn’t want that!

Despite their busy schedules, each of these speakers said Yes! to sharing at this event and they are sure to teach some of their best stuff. We don’t want you to go through the same mistakes and setbacks they experienced and learned from.  They can teach you strategies and tweaks, that when properly applied, can make all the difference.

“If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.” – John Rohn

We can all use a little more self-confidence these days. Self-confidence can often be in short supply in trying times but there are ways you can get it back. When your self-confidence is lacking, you need to take control of the situation and make yourself-confident again. You can accomplish a lot more with self-confidence than you can without.

Once you know how to create confidence, you become a powerful person. Confidence breeds more confidence which is a direct link to success.

So how can you get your self-confidence back?

Try one or more of these techniques and see how your confidence soars!

Make a to-do list.

Having a to do list ensures that nothing will fall through the cracks and allows you to see what is on your plate. From there, choose 3 to 5 tasks that are the most important to accomplish for the day, prioritize them and then get them done. You will be amazed at how awesome you will feel as you tick the items off the list.  Show yourself that you can be productive and successful.

Each time you make a list or a plan and execute it, you have more confidence in yourself.

It doesn’t matter what it is you accomplish, just the act of accomplishing  is not only motivating but a big self-confidence booster.

Keep your biggest goals to yourself.

Revealing your big goals to others can be enough to make you consider quitting if the feedback you get is not positive. This is de-motivating and will make you question your goals.

Improve your posture.

How you use your body affects how you feel. If you sit and stand tall, you’ll feel more confident, try it;  sit up in your chair and see how much more confident professional you feel. In fact, many salespeople make their calls standing up for this exact reason.

List all your positive qualities and accomplishments.

There are plenty of things you can admire about yourself. Even if you have to call your mom and friends for inspiration, make a list of all your positive qualities. It won’t take long before you feel a little confidence welling up inside of you. Keep the list handy for future reference and keep adding all your accomplishments to it.

Remove those things from your life you’ve been tolerating.

We tolerate too much in our lives. It is important to get rid of everything and everyone that is a confidence and energy sucker.

Do something you’re good at.

What are you good at? Whatever it is, you feel better after doing it. Try to spend time each day doing something that you know you’re great at. Your self-confidence will increase.

Exercise.

Exercise provides more than just health benefits. It boosts your willpower, stamina, and self-belief. Exercise also reduces anxiety. All of these things can’t help but boost your self-confidence, too. It’s important to try to get at least a little exercise each day.

End Result.

It’s probably not possible to feel confident 100% of the time, but you can come a lot closer than you think. Even in challenging circumstances, you are the same.

Self-confidence is always right there, you just have to see it.

These simple actions are an easy way to find the self-confidence you’ve temporarily misplaced.

Share with us what works best to boost your self-confidence! We would love to hear from you!

As I heard my 5 children come in the front door and head up the stairs my heart wrenched in physical and emotional pain.

I fell to my knees and began sobbing uncontrollably.

It was right then that I realized as I heard their joyful laughing voices calling “Mom! We’re Home!” that this day could have been so very different.

I thanked my Heavenly Father that my children would find me alive and happy to see them, not seemingly asleep yet not breathing having left them and this life… by accidental overdose.

That’s the day I decided my life had to change and I had to find the joy within myself.

 

Things didn’t change overnight like in the movies. That was not the day I found joy, happiness, and that everything was going to be perfect. It’s not the day that the dementors left me. It was not the day that all of my problems went away.

Without question, it was the day I realized that my heart had stopped beating.

I will always remember that is WAS the day I decided to start living again. The first thing I had to do was to remember who I was. I had spent so many years being only what everyone else told me I should be or that I thought I had to be to be accepted and loved that I didn’t know who I was anymore.

So, it’s time for you to do a self-check.

When is the last time you felt your heart beating? When is the last time you truly felt joy in your life and knew without hesitation who you are, what your purpose is, and how you are going to achieve your dreams and goals?

Here are three powerful steps for how you can do this:

 

Y – YOU! Take care of you every day.

 

The average woman spends only 17 minutes a day on herself. That’s just crazy! Taking care of ourselves is mandatory to feel alive.  How can we care for those we love if we don’t care for ourselves?

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” -Howard Thurman

 

I’d love to hear you share your “I AM” statement below. Who are you really? Deep down in your deepest soul?

 

E – EXCITED! Get excited about your life and what you’re doing every day.

 

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to wake up excited every morning? If you aren’t doing what you are passionate about your heart won’t be ablaze and you won’t feel anything.

“Unhappiness is not knowing what we want and killing ourselves to get it.” -Don Herold

 

We must choose to do things that get us excited! Do you want to change the world, have a great relationship, have fewer negative emotions? What about success? Chose what you want to do and be in your life and how you want to live and get excited about it!

 

S – START! Don’t wait. Do it NOW!

 

“One day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted… Do it now.” -Paulo Coelho

 

Someone once said, “The time to have the map is before you enter the woods.” Do you have your map ready?

What are you waiting for? Right this very minute, make a clear plan and make it happen!

 

Y.E.S. You need to get Excited and Start now!
