BRICK BY BRICK WE STEP INTO GREATNESS
I appreciate my 2 sisters, Kate Sekhu and Mastene Mlangeni, who are successful Leaders in INUKA. I have learnt from the best. Kate, a Triple Diamond Leader, is our INUKA Ambassador for 5 consecutive years. Mastene, a Double Diamond Leader, is our No 2 Top Business Leader. It has always been my wish to follow in their footsteps to achieve INUKA Diamond Status. With their powerful guidance, inspiration and support this became a reality.
It has been a challenging, but beautiful journey. I have learnt that everything is beautiful depending on the situation. A school bell sounds irritating at 8 am in the morning, but the same sound is melodious at 4 pm in the afternoon. That means when you start a challenge it is not easy, but when you achieve the challenge it is an awesome feeling.
Martin Luther King Jr said: “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward”. I kept this in mind, and Brick by Brick I stepped into my own greatness.
You don’t need hundreds of Members in your Downline to be a success in INUKA. You just need a few people who share the same vision with you. The measure of success is not about how quickly you can reach your next status, but whether you can maintain this status. Consistency is key. This approach has helped me to be recognized also as a Top 25 Business Leader every year since 2016. History is made. Keep in mind that we are the Founders and CEO’s of the Legacies we decide to create for all those around us and the next generation. Quitting is never an option, perseverance is.
Work hard, enjoy your hard work with passion. Always give excellent customer service. Treat them with respect, love and dignity. This will ensure loyal customers that buy into you firstly and they will come looking for you to place their next orders. Smell great every day. Create your own signature fragrance by mixing and matching more than one fragrance at a time and your customers will want to buy into your great smell and buy from you only.
Thank you to my teams from Gauteng, North West, KZN and Western Cape. I appreciate your efforts from the bottom of my heart. Team Hendrolitta, you are a game changer. Your continuous support cannot pass unnoticed. Team Eagles, thank you for the motivation and prayers. You are simply the best. Keep on flying and remember the story of the Eagle when days are dark.
I also like to thank my entire family and my husband Saul for believing in me. Thank you to my children, Kate and her sons, Mastene and her children. Thank you to our Founder, Alma Gericke, for the beautiful dream. Helpdesk, Orders and Finance Departments, the pickers, checkers, boxers and dispatch team: You are awesome.
Go as far as you can and then take another step to step into your greatness. Focus on the gifts and talents God gave you. Don’t be envious of the blessings God gave to others.
Allow me to share some quotes that helped me on my journey: A seed while growing makes no sound, but when a tree falls it makes a huge noise. Destruction shouts, but creation is always quiet. Storms make trees to take deeper roots. Each time we face our fears we will gain strength, courage and confidence. A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure despite overwhelming obstacles.
Keep moving forward.
