MLSP CCO, Roxana Hannah, sent a letter to MyLeadSystemPro's community leadership groups, the MMT & EMT, to find out what drives, motivates and what creates meaning for them in their business:
“Hope you're all having a great summer! I've been in Santa Monica for almost a month housesitting blocks from the ocean and have had quality time to myself to reflect upon what this business means to me.
For me it's all about belief. Belief is my driver. This feeling I get doesn't just “happen” for any company in this industry either… it's on “11” for MLSP – I love the community aspect we have. I love that we literally build leaders. I'm proud to be part of this company – I see the co-founders and staff as family and cherish the relationship you and I develop.
Having a strong sense of belief in my primary is also extemely important. Throughout the process of looking at and bouncing around a bit I've learned what products best suit my interests deeply enough to tap into that belief driver. This is what excites me about what I do. I believe in the change I can make through my work.

What drives you every day? What is your motivation? What does this business mean to you?”

What drives me every day at this point in time is what I like to call my most “immediate” why. It's the part of my Why that I'm closest to achieving, that I can see happening in the next 4 to 6 months.
I've found that when I focus on the big HUGE dreams that I have, it's easy to get discouraged and feel like it's going to be a long, long time before I achieve them (when in all actuality I'm not that far away).
So for me personally my most immediate why is having a down payment saved up so my wife and I can buy our dream home. This home sits directly on a river, has a boat dock, is just absolutely gorgeous, and it has enough bedrooms so my wife and I can start a family.
I have a picture of that home stuck everywhere in my office. I have it on my computer. If I'm tired, or excuses start cropping up, a quick glance at those photos and my fire is a blazin again.
So that most immediate why, is what pushes me every day. It creates motivation in me to get things done even when I don't feel like it.
But of course, it' deeper than that…and this ties into what this business means to me. This business isn't just about me and my family. All of the material stuff is cool and all, but changing other people's lives is even cooler.
That is what this business means to me. It's an opportunity for anyone, regardless of their background, sex, beliefs, how much money they have, etc. etc…to achieve the big, massive, goals and dreams they have. And it's my duty to help as many people as I can do exactly that.

My motivation for doing what I do is mulit-faceted:
1) I absolutely despise being told what to do. In my corporate life I had bosses who were better politicians that I was, so they got the promotions and I got the heavier workload because of my abilities. Now I work only on projects that interest and excite me. If I don't want to work on something, I simply say “no thank you”. I love that!!
2) My little ones: Sarah (8 years) and Kaitlyn (19 months). I didn't have children to hand them over to someone else to raise. I utilize lots of resources: tutors, co-op classes, sitters, etc. to help me care for them, but I retain the responsibility for raising them myself.
3) My amazing husband. We met when I was 39 and he was 45. We married almost a year after our first date then immediately got pregnant with our daughter and launched our NM business at the same time. We adore being around each other, and I desperately want it to be full time. Our NM business is vehicle that is getting us there.
4) Spread the seed of entrepreneurship. As a long time entrepreneur and freedom lover, I'm on a mission to spread the word about the life-changing opportunity that being an entrepreneur especially in NM can provide to anyone who's willing to go out and make their dreams a reality. In an nutshell: jobs SUCK, business ownership RULES!!
Thanks for giving me the chance to share some of my thoughts on a subject that is so close to my heart. And also for giving me a venue to spread my passion to others who so desperately need to be inspired with hope and gratitude.

I recently read Brendon Buchard's book, “The Messenger”, and it was amazing how he put into words exactly what I felt…what I've been feeling for so long about my why. He really pinpointed it – I felt as if he was writing about ME when talked about his strong desire to “live, love, matter”!
It's embedded in all of us, I think – a yearning to live life to the fullest and without regrets, to love and be loved, and to know that we made a difference.
I've always felt that I'm here on planet Earth for a purpose, that I'm meant to do something great with my life. Ever since I was a little girl I've felt that way. I remember how while the other kids were out playing I would sit in my room and daydream about how I was going to change the world. (Smile.)
Life is such a gift and, as Buchard also writes about in his book, when you yourself have overcome obstacles and come out of it stronger, you feel like you have an obligation of sorts to use that experience to empower others.
Well, that's how I feel. It's an obligation…but not in a negative way. “Responsibility” may be a better word. And it's a responsibility that I'm passionate about. To train, inspire and motivate others gives me fulfillment.
So my why is to live life to the fullest – being all that I was meant to be – and to help others do the same: To “live, love, matter”. That's what it's all about for me.
