The 4 Ps

What are the 4 Ps. I googled what the 4 Ps could mean. In marketing, they are the product, price, place and promotion. Which I didn't know, but will learn more about. But to me, the 4 Ps are patience, persistence, perseverance, and passion.

Who says that you have to wait until January 1st of a new year to begin anew.

I recently had a birthday and I decided that it was time for a change in my personal life and business life.

Personally, I will say I'm a junk food junkie. I love my sweets especially chocolate and ice cream. As I've gotten older I have found that sugar affects me when it comes to my work. What I mean is I lose focus, I just feel blah. I feel like I don't want to do anything. It weighs me down like a lead weight. Also if I eat sweets before bed I have nightmares. Knowing this I know that eating healthier changes all that, I know cause I've done it. But I keep going back to sugar. It's an addiction that can and will kill me if I don't do something about. I have high cholesterol and I'm overweight and I could stand to lose 40-50 pounds, but really it's not about the weight, although that would help a lot, I need to eat healthier foods. I need to feel good and I know when I eat right I feel good!

Short story...I knew I was going to my annual check-up within a few weeks and blood work was going to be taken which my cholesterol would be checked. My doctor has told me that I should be on medicine, but I didn't want that and if I could control it with healthy eating habits I wouldn't have to take the medicine. So with that said...for 2 weeks I had no sweets and ate my veggies. My cholesterol dropped 30 points! That was awesome! No medicine! Know what later that day I was back to sweets.

Now I will try again. Will I succeed? I don't know. I do know I want to try and I want to succeed. And this is how I'm going to do it.

I'm going to be patient with myself, I will be persistence in getting off my butt and making healthy meals. I will persevere through it all because I have a passion for my life, my family, my pets and my business. And I want to know what it feels like to be strong and healthy for more than 2 weeks.

My business life, well for the first time, in a very long time I feel positive about my business and I'm moving in the right direction. I found my niche in my photography and continuing my love of fluid art. I love doing both and I won't deny myself of either! I'm not going to let my fear of rejection get in the way of my future. The saying goes "When one door closes another will open".

I will move forward with patience, taking my time and moving slowly and deliberately. I will be persistence in finding my customers and places to sell my artwork. I will persevere through it all because I am passionate about what I do and love it!

Quite honestly my business life is in better shape than my personal life, but I won't have either if I don't take better care of myself. My 4 Ps will get me through this...patience, persistence, perseverance, and passion and a lot of positivity which I guess makes it my 5 Ps.

It's time...it's time for a lifestyle change.

New product to tell you about next time. See you then.
