Tim and I have been at the Go Pro event in Las Vegas with Eric Worre and thousands of other network marketers this week and it has been an energizing couple days!! I love being in a huge arena full of people who do the same thing as me, but in all sorts of different ways. We’ve been learning a whole bunch of things from Eric Worre and so many other incredible speakers at this 3 day conference.
I’m so thankful that we get to learn from other network marketers who have been in the business for over 25 years! There is so much experience that I can learn from to grow and develop my own business. Check out this stadium full of people wanting to learn!!
Tim was with me the first two days of the conference but now he has headed back home to Halifax and I’ll be staying for the final day of training. I am so passionate about what I do and I love the opportunity to get to grow as a leader. That’s ALL I want to do! Become a better leader for my team!!
I will admit, seeing Tim leave was hard. I love being on these trips with him and travelling with him. I had a panic attack last night in the middle of the night because Tim leaving was weighing on my mind. I struggle with anxiety and last night was a really tough night because I woke up in the middle of the night and I was shaking and could hardly breathe. I didn’t like thinking about the fact that I would be travelling alone and that after my friend Diana leaves, I will be alone in my hotel room too.
Believe me – I am having a GREAT time here at the conference. I LOVE meeting new people and being around a big crowd. That’s not the part that gives me anxiety. I get anxiety from the thought of being alone and I think Tim leaving triggered something subconsciously. I don’t really know why I am so worried about travelling alone because I do it so often but that’s what sucks about anxiety – there is no reason for it sometimes.
I tried to work myself through my panic attack so that it wouldn’t get any worse so I decided to go on Facebook Live and even though I looked terrible and it was so embarrassing to be so vulnerable, I found strength in having people support me through my panic attack. So many people gave me love and advice and that helped me remember that I am not alone in this struggle.
I want to raise more awareness about mental health struggles and anxiety because I know that so many people struggle with it. I don’t want people to think they are the only ones that struggle. You are not alone!!!
I’ve got another full day of training today and I am ready to learn so much from the rest of this conference – regardless of the restless night I had. I am here to learn and I am ready for that!! Bring it on!
