In The Field

Thursday was my last day working as a Public Relations Director and the first day as an Insurance Agent. I went out in the field all by myself and made a deal on my first night. During training they kept saying that when you are in the field and explain the program you will begin to say to one's self, "they really need this." That is exactly what happened. The person really needed it and they got it! It is a really fulfilling career that I have just started.

It is going to take sometime to get my presentation and interpersonal relationships tuned it. I need to tune into the person in the first 5 minutes which is something sometimes hard for me. But, I am listening to books to improve my skills. As Zig Ziglar says, I am taking an investment in "Automobile University."

Beautiful Country and H.F.

I was driving back from Birmingham, Alabama today and felt love for this state. It is a state that many people make fun of because of the country-ness of it and the people that come out of this state. However, my experience was beautiful!

There were the most beautiful trees and hills in Birmingham, AL. It was a feeling that brought me peace to my soul each day that I got out of my room and saw the hills filled with green trees that were so think that you could not tell that people lived on the hills. It also gave me another example of the love that my Heavenly Father has for me and his spectacular mind that created such a magnificent place.

Yesterday, I received an email with this quote and felt it really expressed a simple but complex thought which today, is what I am discussing in my blog.

“All that I have seen teaches me to believe in the creator I have not seen.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Takes some time today to see what we have been so blessed to have!

I'm doing it!

So the job changed last year in June (2007) which made my life change with a different career focus. This past year, I did Public Relations and created leads for insurance agents to go and work. Now, I have the confidence to go in the fields. Currently, I am in training this week! It is the most energetic and self-fulfilling experience and I see success coming soon.

Most importantly all the prior experiences over the past 14 months have been the a preparation for me to be here by my Heavenly Father. He is the person in charge of things. No matter how much I will try to fight him, he will always win. This is his world and he knows what is best for me. I am here to learn to be the best person that I can be. We are all here for this experience and to grow from the trials of life. It gives me strength knowing that my Heavenly Father loves me and knows what is best for me.

When trails are hard I recall what President Faust said years ago, "Ask what can I learn from this trial and not why is this happening to me". This has been my focus ever since I heard that advice in General Conference. It changed my focus as I go through life.

I sit in my classes and see the potential I have at this point in time. I sit with confidence knowing that I was not prepared for this experience until RIGHT NOW. If it had been any earlier then I would have been a shrinking Violet as the saying goes, but I am a strong Daisey ready to shine. To go forth and sell!

"You and I" by Michael Buble

I was on a friends blog today and she had one of those song players and heard this song. It was just a fabulous song that touched my heart. In my planner mine, I am recording this song because it is a song that I want played at any wedding that I plan.
Either my wedding (one day but not anytime soon... no one start jumping for joy. LOL) or for Sydney's.

"You and I"
by Michael Buble

Here we are
On earth together
It's you and I
God has made us fall in love
It's true
I've really found
Someone like you
Will it stay
The love you feel for me
Will you say
That you will be by my side
To see me through
Until my life is through
Well in my mind
We can conquer the world
In love you and I
You and I, you and I...I'm glad
At least in my life
I've found someone
That may not be here forever
To see me through
But I found strength in you
Cause in my mind
You will stay here always
In love you and I
You and I, you and I
You and I, you and I
You and I
In my mind
We can conquer the world
In love you and I
You and I, you and I
You and I...

On this 4th of July, I reflect of my gratitude for this country that I have been blessed to be born in and at this time. We have wars and rumors of wars and they are not on my countries soil! How blessed I feel that I can walk outside anytime that I want and drive where ever I want. I am proud to be an American and continue to hope for a safe country for my family and other countrymen.

It also makes me proud to know that we have a country that you can be whoever you want. From a business owner to a bum we have the freedom to choose and the support in this country. May we all be grateful for this country and continue to believe in the American Dream. Make your dreams come true because this is a country that it can happen! Have a glorious and tremendous day of freedom! Remember those who have past before us for this freedom.
