Shake it off... AND STEP UP!

I was listening to some Mary Kay seminar speeches in my car this morning 
(these are absolutely phenomenal!)
I think the main reason I love Mary Kay so much is for all the 
inspiration and motivation.

THERE IS NO NEGATIVITY IN MARY KAY!

So on one of the speeches, Pat Fortenberry shared the most inspiring story. 
I wanted to share it with you.

Once upon a time there was a Mule. This mule fell into a really deep hole one day and the owner had no idea how to get him out of there. It was so old and was having trouble walking so the owner decided he was going to bury the mule. The owner went and got a few of his friends to help him bury the mule. They started to shovel dirt on front of the mule. After two scoops of dirt they heard a weird noise, so they stopped. They had no idea what this noise was. They would shovel some dirt on the mule and then would hear a funny noise, they repeated this several times. Finally after several scoops of dirt they started to see the Mule. They then figured out that every time they had put dirt on the mule, he would shake it off and then step up, shake it off and step up!



 I loved this story so much because it relates to everyday life.
I feel like obstacles are hard to shake off but provide us stepping stones that we
NEEDED to get to our next destination. 

I have been really watching how things are playing out in my
own little life lately, and IT IS INCREDIBLE! 
I feel everything that has been put in my path has a reason and a purpose!
I may not be the story writer but I think it is even more rewarding 
to be Hollywood actress of my own world.

Life is good...

When you don't get the job you have been hoping for... what are you going to do?

SHAKE IT OFF AND STEP UP!

When you get in a fight with a friend.... what are you going to do?

SHAKE IT OFF AND STEP UP!

When someone cuts you off...what are you going to do?

SHAKE IT OFF AND STEP UP!

When the day seems to be crazier than you had planned out....what are you going to do?

SHAKE IT OFF AND STEP UP!

"Use your daily setbacks to give you the stepping stone you need
for an incredible destiny"
