Beyond Success Lies SIGNIFICANCE

Today, I am sitting in the beautiful Dominican Republic on the FirstFitness Nutrition’s Dream Vacation.  Twelve of our top Distributors are with me as a result of their achievement in our company.  To our great team of dedicated wellness coaches and business builders, winning a Dream Vacation to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, is an achievement of SUCCESS that others dream about winning.

This year’s Dream Vacation, however,  had an added component that we’ve never done before, making this our first ever LEGACY Dream Vacation in partnership with the Children’s Hunger Fund.  Recognizing the power of leaving a lasting legacy, I asked our CEO, Nigel Branson, if we could add a day onto the trip to move beyond the feeling of SUCCESS and offer a life-changing time of significance for our Distributors.  And, so yesterday, under sunny skies and extremely warm temperature, our Distributors set aside their tropical drinks by the pools of luxury, and at 7 a.m., loaded up onto a small bus and drove four hours into one of the most poverty stricken areas of this region.

As we began the journey, I prayed to myself, “Dear God, let today be filled with your presence.  Use our lives to be a source of hope, health and healing to the children and families we will reach. And let this experience FOREVER change the lives of our Distributors so they will sense an even greater purpose behind what we do as entrepreneurs, and the bigger meaning behind why we should do it.”

Our first stop was a small church that was also the local school.  They had a special presentation for us and our hearts were touched by the faces of the children, looking to us with bewilderment.  With American visitors, usually comes gifts and surprises so they were “lit up” with excitement and anticipation.  They sang to us, recited scriptures they had memorized, and welcomed us in their languages of Spanish, French and Creole.  

As I, along with all of our Distributors, sang “Jesus Loves Me”, the smiles of the children were so big and, though they couldn’t understand our words in English, they could feel our love.

After our time together, we went outside and played with the toys we brought for them.  From hoola hoops, jump ropes and baseballs, to the masterful coaching of Brian Fox teaching the boys to play basketball with a Nerf hoop, the joy of simple pleasures was seen in all of our eyes and felt in our hearts.

From there, we moved to where these children lived, and our hearts were so profoundly impacted.  Indeed, it was a culture shock to all of us. Words would be inadequate to try to explain the poverty we witnessed, as our American lifestyle is so far removed.  We saw shacks made from scraps, surrounded by trash, flies and waste, but to these families, it was shelter, provision and HOME.   I could see the tears continually welling up in the eyes of the Distributors as it was a surreal and life-changing moment of time for all of us.

After a day of delivering food packs, prayer, hope, and sometimes just a hug, we knew this was the RICH life – that life where we’re blessed enough to be a blessing to others.

Why do we work so hard in our own country?  Is our greatest sign of achievement the titles we possess or the cars we drive?  Is it the material possessions we accumulate?  Or is there a larger and grander reason for the blessing of success? What if the real test in life is our ability to move beyond success into a life of lasting significance?

3 Tips For Blogging Success

Three Tips To Blogging Success:

He re are 3 tips to creating a powerful blog that will help you brand yourself for success and eventually drive traffic to your lead capture page, creating more customers and business partners:

1. Blog consistently.

When getting started, I suggest sprinting for at least 2 to 3 weeks, blogging 5 days a week, then you can back off a little to 3 times a week. The more you post, the more likely you will be found.


2. Make the blog about you and your business.

Don’t make it one big ad or pitch. People see this type of thing everywhere. Make is personal, make it unique and make it about you.  Talk about your dreams, goals, aspirations, successes and failures.  Post pictures and events of things that are core to your values and passion.

3. Use keywords in your blog post title and mixed throughout your post.

Link your keywords to places that you want people to go when they search for those words. (Hint: Your lead capture page).   Don’t stop just because it feels you are talking to the air.  Keep posting and eventually you will be found!

You Are Destined To INNOVATE

The Ultimate Entrepreneur

Have you ever thought about what it must have been like to have such clarity of vision that despite sitting in the presence of absolute darkness, void, and emptiness, still the creative energy that flows within you is like an UNSTOPPABLE storm about to change the landscape of the future as we know it?

Can you imagine believing in your vision so much that you speak to it, hover over it, meditate on it till eventually it is manifested into reality?

This morning during my devotion, I was meditating on Genesis 1 when the pages came to life as if in a 4D movie.  Absolute darkness, complete emptiness, zero reflection, total silence and YET……astronomical entrepreneurial energy!

GOD IS THE ULTIMATE ENTREPRENEUR.

Let’s look at the first known creation in Genesis 1.   It says that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void and darkness covered the face of the deep.  AND YET…The Spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters, over the darkness, and over what seemed like NOTHING!

At this very early stage of the Ultimate Entrepreneurial venture, there was nothing but the vision of God.   There was NO SIGN that would dictate his plan would work, nothing to even make is seem possible.  There was no proof that such a world of systems could work.  Even though the Bible says, “In the beginning WAS….the heavens and earth”, they did not even exist yet!  They were nothing but a plan, an idea, an entrepreneurial vision of GOD to make SOMETHING out of NOTHING.

Point #1:   Every entrepreneurial vision begins with the hope of something that has not yet been created.

Point #2:  Every great entrepreneur does not let current reality define their ultimate destiny.   No matter where you are right now or what your current circumstances may be, you are the incubator of greatness.  Your current reality is nothing more than preparation for your ultimate destiny.

Point #3:  Darkness, silence, emptiness and even loneliness are the perfect pH balance for miracles to happen.  They were the soil for God’s creation to be manifest.  The darkness, void, and empty moments of your life could very well be the time when you are to begin speaking to your creation, hovering over it and start expecting it like never before to appear before your very eyes.

Expectancy is the breeding ground for miracles.

Point #4:  God SPOKE to his vision, “Let there be light.”   The bible says light appeared, even though it was eleven scriptures later (vs.11) when the stars, sun and light were actually made reality.   You must believe in and speak to the vision in your heart even before it is a reality.  Call it into being.  Prepare for it.  Make way for it’s arrival and then wait with earnest expectation and faith.

When God innovates, He does so in the midst of the most uncommon, unnatural and seemingly impossible climates.   With David, He saw a king when others saw a sheperd.  With Mary, He saw the womb of the Savior when others saw a little girl.  With Jesus, He saw ULTIMATE REDEMPTION when others saw a carpenter.

When God looks at you, He sees so much more than the world around you could ever see in you.  Do NOT be despised by small beginnings.  Do not be disheartened when those around you see your dream as small or insignificant.  Do not be swayed by only what is seen.  For it is that which is UNSEEN awaiting birth that will be the greatest inventions of our future.

“Oh the creative, entrepreneurial energy that surrounds us!   Even in the midst of the Garden of Eden, little did Adam know that a chair existed in the tree.  Tomorrow’s greatest ideas, inventions, businesses, and discoveries are resting in the things that already surround us today.  The catch is…..will you see them?   Will you be the ONE to bring them out of the tree and into the world as we know it?

Point #5 NOW is the time.   THIS is the place.  And YOU are the one to bring into reality that which has never been done, never been heard and never been conceived.  You are the Sons and Daughters of GOD, created in HIS image.
