Jonathan Cronstedt shares Empower Network success stories
Being the first woman and African American to reach a million dollars in commissions showed Empower Network’s Tracey Walker that anything is possible.
Since joining Empower Network in October 2011, she has found inspiration not only in her family, but in individuals who contact her seeking success and change. This led her to create her business/life mantra, “inspiring you into action,” which allows her to inspire those who inspire her.
“I don’t just want people to listen to what I’m saying and feel great; I want them to take that and let it pump them up into action,” said Walker.
Walker believes that she has become so successful because she was willing to work hard and realize that her timeline is not someone else’s timeline. When you focus on other people’s goals, you lose sight of your own. Walker learned to not measure herself against anyone else. She realized that she had to develop, be satisfied with her process, strive to do better than she did yesterday and remain focused on her own goals.
In order to be successful, you have to accept your challenges, work through them and move on. These processes are all very familiar to Walker. Experiencing foreclosure, repossession, losing her mom, divorce, bankruptcy and watching her business plummet made her much stronger and enabled her to keep going. She believed that she was destined to do something great and that belief served as one of her biggest inspirations.
When asked how Empower Network changed her life, Walker summed it up in only a few words: “My life is free.” With her fiance, Kelo, his three children and her 5-month-old son, Jasiah, Walker is now living the life she’s always desired.
Individuals like Walker show how important it is to remain focused on your dreams and understand that nothing is impossible. You have to find something or someone who motivates and inspires you and understand that obstacles will arise. However, whatever these obstacles may be, you still have to persevere.
Finding motivation and inspiration can be as easy as having sticky notes all over your office and home. Walker placed them all over her office and mirrors, writing affirmations such as “I am a million-dollar earner” on them. By doing this, she was not only focused and reminded every day of her accomplishments, but she was motivated and inspired to keep going.
No matter what you’re involved in, keep one thing in mind: Everyone can succeed. All you have to do is focus on your goal and persevere, just like Empower Network affiliate Tracey Walker.
