At-A-Glance - Facts about Mary Kay and the incredible company she started.
A lesson from Mary Kay
"Where are you now? What do
you want to accomplish? If we determine where we are compared to where we want to be, then we can move ahead.
Then write your goals down. Is your goal clearly defined? Is it specific? Do you have dates? Amounts?
Or whatever it is you are trying to accomplish? Is it stated in a positive way? Have you considered the advantages
as well as the obstacles you will have to overcome? You see, goal setting is transplanting your ideas into plans, and
it's very important that you write them down."

Thoughts on Getting Started
A lesson from Mary Kay
that the hardest part of any job is getting started. J.C. Penney once said that, and it is true. So get home and get started
and get going. Be careful not to confuse mere activity with action. You can put in a lot of miles running in place -- but
you will stop right where you started. The secret is constructive action. Placing a value on your time and learning to balance
and budget your time. Treat it as if it were gold, which it is." (New Frontiers Management Conference Speech 1989)
Confidence Stimulates Ability
A lesson from Mary
achievement, big or small, begins in your mind. It starts as a thought. Your self-image comes into play as you act out that
thought. Confidence stimulates your ability to perform. Whether you're in sales, sports, business, or law, those good days
at work don't occur by chance. They result from attitude." (Mary Kay: You Can Have It All 1997 Calendar)
Act Enthusiastic and You Will Become Enthusiastic!
lesson from Mary Kay.
"Enthusiasm is a way of life. It's a magic spark that transforms
being into living, and it makes hard work enjoyable. Nothing will help you to sell yourself better than the power of
your personal enthusiasm."
Work Will Win Where Wishing Won't
A lesson from Mary Kay.
"Remember, if you do the things you ought to do when you ought to do them, then someday you can do the things
you want to do when you want to do them. Whatever you do - or dream you can do - begin it."
Makes The Woman
A lesson from Mary Kay.
you have confidence in yourself, you'll create a positive buying environment. By having your hair, nails, and makeup done
properly, you'll feel good about yourself, and this will come through to your customers. If you don't have a dress that makes
you feel like a million dollars, buy one. While clothes may not make the woman, they certainly have a strong effect on her
self-confidence - which, I believe, does make the woman. (Mary Kay: You Can Have It All 1997 Calendar)
The Lady Was A Leader
by Dr. John C. Maxwell, Leadership Wired
Two years ago, the world lost a great leader.
Mary Kay Ash, the founder of the cosmetics empire that bears her name, died on Nov. 22, 2001. I never
had the privilege of meeting Mary Kay, but I've read her books and I've talked to people who knew her. And everything I've
learned confirmed what I already believed--that she was the picture of an exemplary leader.
Mary Kay started her company in 1963 with her life savings of $5,000 and the help of her 20-year-old
son. Her goal then--and to the day she died--was to provide women with an unlimited opportunity for personal and financial
success. She achieved that goal. Today, the company has over one million independent beauty consultants in more than 30 markets
worldwide and is the largest direct seller of skin care products in the United States.
Someone once asked Mary Kay how she succeeded so quickly. "I was a middle-aged lady, had varicose veins,
and I didn't have time to fool around," she replied.
That answer says a lot about Mary Kay's sense of humor and view of life. But I think there's a bit
more to the story of her rapid success. Here are four factors that contributed to Mary Kay's rapid growth.
1. She had a need, and that gave her passion.
I've always said that the seed of
a miracle is a need, and that was definitely true in Mary Kay's case. Remember the last time you wanted to accomplish something
great, and you wanted to do it quickly? Your desire was accompanied by a tremendous sense of urgency, wasn't it? The need
inspires the passion.
2. She had an idea, and that gave her potential.
The most important thing in life
is a good idea. It's more important than time; it's more important than money. When it comes to potential for growth, you're
only as big as the idea that you possess right now. Mary Kay knew what she wanted to accomplish, and that gave her potential.
3. She made a commitment, and that gave her personal success.
She was willing to
put her life savings on the line in order to achieve personal success. It is a fact of life that you can only go as far as
your commitment lets you go. When your commitment level is low, you don't accomplish very much. But when your commitment level
is high, you can achieve a great deal.
4. She knew how to lead.
If you don't remember anything else about Mary Kay, remember
this: Her ability to lead compounded her success. With hard work, initiative, discipline and the right skills, everyone has
the potential to be a personal success. But only leaders have the potential to compound success. Let me explain what I mean.
You don't compound success by doing what you can do. You compound success by bringing others to your vision and accomplishing
that vision through them.
That's exactly what Mary Kay did. She didn't just have great gifts that enabled her to be a personal
success. The lady was a leader, and that's what allowed her to take her vision and pass it on to hundreds of thousands of
women all across the globe.
