The joy on the other side of the door. Thriving in the “New Normal”. By: JODY LEE-WARD,
Powerful Leader in NWM
Exclusive to Juan Francisco De Marti Academy
As we move forward and the doors begin to open again, we must remember that these doors open our hearts to greater understanding and shared experiences.
Like everyone else, when I was told to take refuge in my home, I really didn't understand the gravity of the situation.
As leader of the team of committed networkers, he had almost unlimited access to their stories, their families, and their life projects; also corporate executives eager to make a plan to keep distributors safe.
Hours were long, decisions had to be made quickly, global alignment was not always easy.
I was incredibly lucky to be surrounded by extraordinary leaders - both corporate and field - who operated from a place of trust and were uniquely focused on doing the right thing.
Once everyone worked safely from home, the chaos changed for me. It got much more personal.
Who was going to teach my children? How was I going to get food in the house? From what part of the world was she going to receive conference calls? Together, we all work towards a new normal. And in doing so, we became much more human.
Learning became more than just basic math and grammar: It was about being patient and learning how to cook for yourself and clean toilets.
Children who interrupted meetings were no longer taboo. It was refreshing. Although the hours have been long and the Zooms are unforgiving, my family has come closer.
At any time of day, I can open my bedroom / office door and find joy on the other side.
There is always a hug waiting for me. There is a math problem that can be solved, a writing difficulty that can be solved, or find something interesting to observe in nature.
I love the "team" we have built.
I love our weekends without plans. I love to really understand what goes on in the beautiful and developing minds of my children.
And now ... the doors start to open again, and I'm scared. Learn to let my children fly again when the rules are not so clear.
There is a natural conflict in allowing them to resume their fledgling social life and in wanting to keep them close where I can selfishly smother them with love and ensure their health and safety.
Not to mention my own unforeseen fears and anxieties of trying to resume a "normal" life based on the network marketing community as an industry.
I find myself once again focusing on the joy on the other side of the door. I remind myself that open doors open our family to new adventures and memory making.
Open doors open our network marketing industry to business in a new and challenging way.
Open doors open our hearts to greater understanding and shared experiences.
I invite all networkers, from my leader's heart, to advance to the other side of the door.
