One of the things I love about this business is the fact that no matter where we started or where we currently are in our lives, it is never too late to go after our dreams and grow into the people we want to be – the people we were destined to become.
Who we are as individuals can basically be summed up into 3 main parts- mind, body, and spirit and these three areas can undergo major improvements when we are intentional about working on them.
I’m sure of this fact because I have experienced it in my own life and also because it is the way God designed us. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).
God wants the best for us and plans the best for us, but there are also universal laws He created that hold us partly accountable for the outcome. Wether you believe in God or not, most people accept these laws as truth. They show up in the secular world all the time, for example: the Golden Rule of ‘treat others as you want to be treated’. That is taken from the bible and so is ‘you reap what you sow’ often translated as ‘what you hand out comes back’.
When we live in a way that these universal laws benefit us then we are able to live up to our full potential and not only be blessed, but also be a blessing to others.
In order to get more we need to be worth more. And in this business, we are worth more when we love others and build relationships. And when we focus on having a healthy body, mind, and spirit we are able to do this to a greater extent.
People want to associate with people who are humble, loving, and caring. That goes both ways because they don’t want to be around someone who is arrogant, unloving, and unforgiving.
As I reflect over my life with GNLD and NeoLife, it is the people who have understood this concept that have had the biggest impact, touching more lives and living out the purpose God has for each and every one of us.
Often I see people have a very unequal focus on body, mind, and spirit, where one of the three is left out all together. That one is usually spirit. But having a balanced focus on all three areas is what I believe has allowed me to have the success I do. I know that on my own, without God’s help, I am not smart enough, or loving enough, or patient enough to have gotten to where I am. It is because of this that I am dedicated to spending the rest of my life helping others to have success that is even beyond their wildest dreams.
There is no greater success than knowing we have lived up to our full potential and touched as many lives as possible. Thank you for the impact you have had and for all the future ways you use this opportunity to be a blessing to others. I have never been more encouraged of just how huge our impact can be when we empower others to be their best.
