Heeeey Yaaall! *Cardi B voice*
Today I’m going to share some wisdom on staying motivated at the club along with tips on being positive on a daily basis. I have practiced these habits for years and have completely retrained my brain into thinking more positively . I am a big believer in the law of attraction, positive attracts positive and negative attracts negative. Ask the Universe and you will receive 🔮.
It all started for me about 6 years ago when I began working in sales. I worked for a commission based door to door sales company and it was one of the hardest jobs that I’ve ever done. The hours were long, the work was draining and people were mean. I knocked on doors all day long, wind, rain or snow. My feet were tired and I had door after door slammed in my face while people shouted “Get a real job!”
I remember one night, walking around a housing estate in Dublin city and it was lashing rain. My clothes were soaking wet and I was completely defeated. I had found shelter next to a ditch with empty beer cans and cigarette butts and I just sat and cried for a minute. When I was done I remembered what my sales coach had told me, nobody wants to answer the door to someone in a bad mood and they definitely don’t want to buy anything! I put my earphones in and I listened to an upbeat song (It was Titanium by Sia lol) and I did the rounds again. I didn’t make a sale but I got myself out of a bad funk and it was one of the best lessons that I have learned. I proved to myself that I was more than my emotions and that I had the power to change my situation.
My training from sales is something that I apply to working at the strip club. I’m still selling it’s just that my product has changed. Believe me, selling dances is a lot easier than selling house alarms!
Motivating myself for work doesn’t start when I walk in the door of the club, it starts when I wake up in the morning. I start by listing everything that I am thankful for. Next I listen to a guided meditation on abundance, my current favorite is this one by Bob Proctor. I tell myself and my friends that tonight is going to be a good night and we are all going to make money. We burn prosperity incense, drink coffee and eat good food before getting ready for the club. I know that meditation and incense burning might not be everyones cup of tea but it’s important to do things that make you happy to lift your mood. You need to reset every day and let anything negative from the previous day go. You can’t change what has already happened so don’t let it weigh you down.
I think it’s really important to forget your previous night at work whether it was good or not. If it was a good night there’s a chance that you will get lazy and not work as hard and if it was a bad night, you’ll end up in a bad mood if you keep thinking about it. It can be so difficult to motivate yourself at work, especially on a slow night. Im always pushing myself in my head and I remind myself that I did not spend an hour doing my hair and make up to not get money. Also, if I wanted to sit around doing nothing I could have stayed at home.
Goal setting throughout the night is also really important. Start small so they are easier to reach, I like to use multiples of €50. After I reach the first goal I tell myself that I want to make €100, €150, €200 and so on. Some women don’t like to count their money until they finish, it’s one of those stripper superstitions (I have loads). In that case you can just count customers or dances so the bad money juju doesn’t get you!
