During the last couple of years, I have thoroughly enjoyed my travels as I have met with and spoken to many of you. I remain inspired and impressed by the awesome level of your commitment. Next week, I will be flying to Thailand to see firsthand the remarkable efforts many are making to help spread our message of health and hope there.
As I celebrate your successes, I am further impressed with what drives you. Some of you are seeking to enhance your lives through optimal health by getting on and staying on the product. Others are happy to share this newfound nutritional wellspring with others, improving their well being. Yet others are striving to free themselves from the slavery of a 9-to-5 job. And, there are some of you who are merely seeking to bring in a few extra dollars a month to make a car payment or pay down your debt.
Whatever your reason, I encourage you to embrace it. It’s been said that, when your “WHY” is big enough, you can figure out any “HOW.”Even if you can’t now see the end of your path to financial freedom and personal success, constantly focusing on your “why” will draw into your lives the people and circumstances that will lead you to your dreams. As Dr. Wayne Dyer, author of You’ll See It When You Believe It, has said, “What you want wants you. Your very act of desiring something has within itself the seeds necessary to achieve it.”
Anthony Robbins suggests that the most effective way to draw positive forces into your life is to use emotion as an “anchor” for your why. Don’t just reflect upon your purpose and goals with logic thinking, “Of course, I want more money,” or “Who doesn’t want financial security?” Associating a strong emotional state to the attainment of your goal will enlist all the powers of your conscious and subconscious minds. As you use your emotional “muscle” to pursue your purpose, you ignite your passion,which fuels even more emotion, which perpetually drives your activities in the proper direction.
Visualizing is a powerful way to call your emotions into action. Take a moment each day to see yourself having attained your goals, whether it’s improving the health of those around your or enjoying financial freedom. Specifically, you’ll want to focus on the feelings you have as you picture the details of your circumstances. After all, as Anthony Robbins explains, we really don’t want more money or better relationships. “What we really want are the ‘states’ we think those circumstances will bring.” So, in the end, it’s all about your emotions anyway.
As you move toward your dreams, there will be those who may be threatened by your success or even your attempt to succeed. Don’t listen to anyone who is not anymore successful than you want to be. Why take financial advice from someone who is poor? I refer to these people as “Uncle Bill” who will consistently tell you how you can’t attain your dreams and that you should give up because nobody will listen to you and you should stop wasting your time. Don’t let anyone try to steal your dreams, especially if they have no dream of their own to share with you.
To this end, we pledge our hands and our hearts to help you reach your goals and our shared dreams. Thank you for all your hard work to date, and thank you in advance for the success you will attain in the very near future.
I believe in you,
