At one point in time, Melody Painter found herself broke and having to use credit cards for groceries. Today, Melody is a six-figure earner at the top 7% of consultants for the largest essential oil company in the world. As a busy entrepreneur and mother to four children, Melody prioritizes what is most important to her, including time flexibility and being with her kids.
During her time on the From Broke to Badass Masterclass series, Melody shared empowering tips to help others succeed personally and professionally while maintaining a sense of peace and balance in their lives. Here’s what she suggests:
Get Clear on What You Want
Get really clear on what you want to achieve. Look at your calendar and make time to work on the important tasks that are going to get you to your future goals. If you don’t know what you want, journaling is a great way to gain clarity. Take a few minutes every day to write down your goals and dreams.
Spend Time with Yourself
Spending time with yourself, whether it be listening to your favorite music, going on a walk, praying, or meditating. The goal is to find a place that you can quiet your mind and allow clarity to come in because enlightening moments can be found in the silence.
If something keeps tugging at your heart—an idea you can’t shake—don’t ignore it. Pay attention to those thoughts and feelings. As soon as they come up, write them down and ask yourself “why?”
Be Willing to Change
If you want to upscale your life and take it to the next level, you must be willing to change. You can’t keep doing things the same way over and over and expect different results. Try to find new ideas and ways to grow while working hard and being consistent.
