I’m 100% sure that anyone out there who attended MAIC 2017 had the time of their life. You learned a ton, made an incredible number of new connections and left energized and ready to take on the world. But, what about all the weeks proceeding the big event? Did you keep up the momentum or have you started to lose speed? Are you continuing to feel the effects of so much knowledge or do you need a bit of a refresher? If you’re feeling like you need a bit of a pick-me-up, don’t worry! That’s completely normal. We often leave those big events incredibly energized, giving us the get-up-and-go to run on overdrive until suddenly we find it’s tough to stay the course. Here’s a look at some ideas for how to stay focused after MAIC 2017.

Look back at your notes. Surely throughout this awesome event, you took tons of notes to remember what you learned. And, if you didn’t – that’s OK too! You can find all sorts of recapped information on the UnFranchise blog – it’s a wealth of knowledge. Same goes for my husband, JR’s blog – it’s the best in the business when it comes to filling you up and taking you to that next level. Use it! Use these awesome resources to teach and inspire.

Remember how we talked about why your individual WHY is crucial to your success? Make sure it’s at the forefront of your intentions. Think of your WHY as your personal mission statement. In order to keep your focus and reach your goals, especially on days that you struggle, your WHY must be at the forefront of your mind. Your WHY should be at the heart of your business, your purpose. Not only should you identify your WHY, if you don’t know your why, you’ll never be it. The why is the purpose, cause or belief that inspires you. (via UnFranchise)

Watch some of the incredible videos and recordings of the event. There’s no better way to feel that energy and enthusiasm than to relive it – just a bit. Turns out, you can catch all the action and remind yourself of each incredible moment by tuning into our YouTube Channel and selecting Market America’s 2017 International Convention. Spend some time over the next couple of weeks watching a few of your favorites. Trust me on this one, you’ll feel the energy and you’ll love every minute of it.

Think about the next event you’re going to attend. It may feel like it’s too early to already be thinking about the next one, but here’s the thing: it’s not. The energy and inspiration that comes from attending these events is absolutely crucial to your success in the business. Building a belief system and giving yourself that push to continually reach for the stars and achieve the next level will keep you going. Once you reach one goal, it’s time to reach for the next. And, once you reach that goal, it’s time to go for the next one. And, all of that is on you. The belief in yourself, in your business and in the power to achieve is exactly what’s going to get you there. So be ready!

So, talk to me. Can you take some of these tips and apply them to your own life to help you stay the course until the next big event? Sure, MAIC 2017 was a big one, but the next is sure to be just as exciting!
