Wow! Am I really on Day 17 already? Time flies when you’re having fun getting fit!
Until I take measurements again next week as per the instructions, I won’t have anything tangible to report other than the fact that I continue to feel great and enjoy even deeper sleep than usual, which is nothing short of amazing. The only problem I’m having is that I’m sleeping so deeply, I really do have to go back to setting an alarm! A great problem to have.
One thing I’d like to mention: Over the years, I’ve been approached by many people about many different health/weight-loss/anti-aging products and yes, I did join one of these companies (which was mainly focused on skincare) ten years ago. And yes, I did give it my all as a business. I went to as many local trainings as my schedule would allow, dialed in on the phone for various conference calls, invested the money in traveling to different cities for national events, and talked about it to everyone I knew, along with strangers.
I didn’t realize it until recently but with the exception of the people closest to me (including my wonderful sponsor), I really didn’t relate to the those who were achieving remarkable success in the “upline.” It’s not a matter of good vs. bad, but a matter of chemistry: if you’re going to get involved (beyond just using excellent products), you really have to like and respect the members of your team. It’s the same principle I use when deciding whether or not to take on a ghostwriting project, regardless of the money involved. If I don’t have a genuine respect for the potential client and the message they want to put out into the world through their book, we are not a match. Period.
In the case of Britt and the team I’m involved with in Isagenix, I do respect, honor, admire, and like everyone. From the moment I attended the gathering at another woman’s home, I sensed that everyone there was down-to-earth, honest, and sincerely interested in helping others. A company can produce the best products in the world but if the team around you seems aloof and disinterested, it’s not going to work for you as business. Yes, you will still benefit from high-quality products; however, if your goal is to create an organization and earn residual income, your local (and long-distance) team is critically important.
Just my two-cents’ worth on a Monday morning. Have a fit and fabulous day!
