New Year Message from The Escobars

Happy New Year Escobar Group!  

The following message was written by my father, he is a tremendous coach and knows how to bring out the best in people.  I was at his home recently for a training and learned something new.  He shared a message that had a profound impact on me as I realized it is the absolute truth.  I will try to paraphrase for now and will work to get him on video soon.   In a nutshell, he shared his opinion on why the majority of people do not succeed in Network Marketing.  He referred to it as "structure," I think the word was.  People are accustomed to structure and structured environments.  They are most likely born into a structured family.  Then they go to school, all structured, 12+ years of structure.  They take a job, or go into the military, More Structure.  At that job they are told what to do in most cases, A-Z.  You are told when to show up, when to take a break or lunch, what to do and when to leave.   Network Marketing is an unstructured environment with very low cost of entry.  Anyone can afford to get involved.  However, people often fail before they even begin because they do not know how to structure themselves or their environment for success.  They spent a lifetime programmed by "Structured Conditioning." That is, other people doing the structuring for them.  Is that the truth or what?  Ok, now lets get on with my father's Powerful New Years message, Read it Carefully.  Oh and a once you have finished reading, check out the little video clip at the bottom, it will crack you up for sure, but it will also inspire. -Sean

Message from Tony: 

"December 2013 is the time of the year to not only reflect upon what you accomplished or didn’t accomplish in 2013 but to plan what you are going to do to better yourself in 2014. It is also a time to make New Year’s resolutions.

January is the time of the year to re-ignite and re-define your passion, your dreams and your goals.

Of course, as most of you know, making new years resolutions is simple and easy; keeping them is a completely different matter.

January is a wonderful time to give yourself a fresh start - to start over again with an absolutely clean slate. It is indeed an exciting time of the year. January is the time of the year to de-program and re-program your mindset. It is the time of the year to ignite your passion and your purpose.

Many of you are disappointed about your performance during the last year. Many of you lost the drive and enthusiasm that you had when you first started your business. Many of you forgot what it was that motivated you to start your business in the first place. Many of you have become disillusioned and confused. Many of you lost focus and became distracted. Many of you fell away, quit and lost hope.

Network marketing is not an easy business and to those that told you it was going to be easy – shame on them!

Network marketing, as a business, can be complicated as it becomes more and more cluttered with all kinds of distraction and of course temptation from competition. Yes, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence but it still has to be nurtured, watered, weeded and fertilized.

Many of you have internal hard drives in your minds that have become cluttered with confusion, disorder, chaos and trepidation to the point that you now may fear and doubt your capacity to achieve success in your business. Perhaps you are even embarrassed now because you are thinking that you can’t do it. Maybe you even feel shamefaced and guilty because you let yourself and others down.

Re-programming your mindset is easy when you find a companion to work with. Just this strategy alone will help you clear all the clutter and negativity that has constipated and suffocated your thinking - your internal computer.

Now is the time to cleanse your thought process, to purge all of the unproductive, negative thoughts that have held you back all last year. Now is the time for you to re-establish worthy goals for 2014 that are doable and achievable, goals that will restore your positive attitude and your confidence. Now is the time to find and work with a companion who will support and encourage you.

Sit down with your companion and establish your goals right now and don’t fall victim to those negative influences that killed your ambition and aspirations last year, influences like procrastination, distraction, doubt and fear. This is the New Year! It is your New Year! Embrace the opportunity the New Year affords you and immerse yourself into it as if your “life of abundance” depends on it – which it does!
Don’t delay your destiny waiting for the right moment. The right moment is here and now - right now - this very second. There is no invitation for you to reinvent yourself or to get started. You don’t need permission from anyone to become the new you.

You have been chosen to do this business. People wait many years to be chosen. Yes indeed, you are chosen and it was you who chose yourself when you chose to have your own business. You were chosen because you are special in every way; you dared to become a better person. You dared to elevate yourself from mediocrity to greatness.

You absolutely know this next year is indeed your year. No matter how dark every day of last year was for you, there is one thing you can always rely upon and look forward to – the light will always return every morning to encourage, inspire and motivate you.

With every new day comes the opportunity for a new and an exciting fresh start. With every New Year comes January 1st and with it, the opportunity to begin anew with a new attitude, a fresh start and a new direction. This is a New Year, it’s your New Year and it is a Year where you will, hopefully, make more mistakes to learn and grow from. Don’t fear mistakes and don’t fear discouragement – learn from these things and grow from them.

You may disappoint yourself a few times, so what! Rise up with enthusiasm and re-engage with more determination, every time. Fear and disappointment does not have to limit you. It’s you, always you that places limits upon yourself.

Courage and persistence are virtues that will ensure you will achieve your goals of joy, happiness and a “life of abundance”.

The best time to plant a cherry tree was 15 years go. The next best time is right now, this very second. Seize this very special moment in your life and plant your cherry tree of achievement and triumph. Now is the time for you to seize this very special moment. Yes! You missed it 15 years go and you missed it for sure last year – don’t miss it again. Next Year 2014 belongs to you - you own it. Embrace January with a renewed enthusiasm and say to yourself, “I’m going to do it, I’m going to get it done!”

It is your choices that will fill and direct your efforts. It’s your enthusiasm, determination, persistence and work ethic that will surely determine where you will be at the end of next year.

Challenges are beautiful things, especially when you accept them, conquer them and learn from them. The greatest of all gifts given to you after you were born was the precious gift of choice. You and you alone can determine this day what you will do today and what you will achieve tomorrow.

Remember, network marketing is indeed a peculiar business. What you get tangibly from all your effort and hard work is insignificant and trivial when compared to what you become as a leader and a human being.

Be who you were meant to be and do your very best this next year. God sees you as an achiever. He sees greatness in you! Do you see greatness in yourself?

Will you re-establish your dream and your goals for 2014? Will you persevere and endure until you have achieved them?

Will you accept 2014 as your year to improve, progress and to excel?

From our family here in Utah, we wish each of you a happy and a prosperous New Year.

We love you all dearly."


Here's that fun Clip I promised:

2014 Will Be HUGE, are you going to benefit from it?

January. The month of opportunity! Here's a nugget for you, work harder than you have ever worked this January and watch that propel you through the rest of the year.   Here are some pointers for you around this. Contact all your friends and invite them to do a group cleanse with you.  If you go to my profile now you will see that I have done just that. I have done it in my own way, but that is besides the point. The point is that you have to put it out there!  Want to get even more of a result around this?  Call the people you know and invite them personally. No reason you can't schedule the group cleanse for later in the month of January and spend the first 3 weeks of the month calling all of your contacts.  Some of you have jumped on this already and built large cleanse groups.  Now the real work begins. Mining for referrals and incentivizing these new customers to bridge into the business.

Another tip, contact all past customers. This is something that works with Isagenix because even when people go off our products 9 times out of 10 they still love the product and acknowledge that it works!  So contact then and invite them to join you this new year and dig to find out why they went off the products?  Was it the cost?  Maybe they didn't fully realize that they could easily earn enough money to pay for their consumption and beyond. Don't be afraid to mention the money.  Truth be told, people are even more interested in the additional income then they are concerned about their health. Sad but true!!  We can give them both the health and the wealth though. So throw out many different hooks and lures and see what they bite on.

Historically the biggest paying months of the year are March and April. No wonder. That's the payoff from the new year. Remember everything pays off 3-4 weeks down the road in network marketing!  We invest in a leverage based business model and it works!!!!

I am ready to work harder than ever before this First quarter of 2014. Why?  Not because I need the immediate income. I believe in network marketing you want to strike while the iron is hot and Isagenix is On Fire right now and the New Year is the hottest time if the year to hit it. The perfect storm!  I know my efforts can pay me years and even decades into the future.  I only believe in investing in leveraged income sources.   We can all invest, not just the super wealthy.  

Are you with me friends?  Are you ready to talk more than you have ever talked in your life , so much that your jaw is sore at the end of the day?  Are you ready to rack up the biggest cell phone bill of your life!   Time to dig our heels in, put on the blinders and don't look up at that scoreboard until March.  We will win the prize, our success is ensured and the track is proven and true. Stick your vision board right on your tv screen, post your goals on your fridge, your mirror and your windshield. Everywhere you will see them. Get a daily or weekly commitment from your accountability partner, your isabuddy.  STOP chasing all the training and mentors, stop all of the tool creation.  Stop waiting for people to come to you. Get serious, contact people. Contact your chicken list, those you haven't dared to. Engage your upline weekly on calls for you. Talk talk talk to people, share share share your story!  The common denominator of success is how much you are sharing!  There is no substitute.   There you have it. These are my priceless pearls for the new year my friends. Now let's do this!!!!  Sean

A Message from Tony and Randi Escobar

We all know that the economy is having an effect on each and everyone of us. Many people of you are losing your homes, your jobs and your retirement. But despite all the challenges, never forget who you really are!
No matter how frustrated, troubled or dispirited you all may feel at this time, deep down within each and every one of you lies greatness, fortitude and unbelievable potential and power.  I came to America in search of my dream of joy, health and wealth in 1968. I arrived in Fort Lauderdale with one small suitcase, a rope for my belt, a fractured foot, cardboard in my shoes and only $50 to my name. 
Since that time I married a wonderful wife that gave me four wonderful children and eleven wonderful grandchildren. I have achieved my dream and it is a beautiful thing! I have always wanted health, wealth and happiness and now I can say have it! 
I cannot go any further with this message to you all without expressing my greatest reward of all. Through the years, doing thousands of meetings and teaching hundreds of thousands of people, I have got to know many truly extraordinary people that have taught me and my wife so much. 
For many of you, times are tough. Perhaps now, you can come to know and appreciate more fully your capacity for innovation, creativity, perseverance and the brightness of your human spirit. Perhaps know you can this moment of unparalleled opportunity and seize it. Perhaps now you can dig deep and with all the determination you can muster take advantage of this wonderful day. It is indeed the first day of the rest of your life.
First I want to personally thank each and every one of you for your contribution to the growth of your respective companies and in particular your own teams.

The real tragedy of life is not this terrible economy; it’s the fact that you don’t really know how many talents you have buried inside you. Most of you are completely oblivious to the power and strength that is within you. As you discover and use these talents you will develop the strength, determination and enthusiasm to go forward with gusto and faith.

Whether you can see it or not, this moment in time is a very important point in your life that was meant to be and it is a good time for you to stop and ponder what I just said here.

“Talents become your strengths – Your strengths will get you to where you want to go in life.” 

A happy and rewarding life is a life where you embracing the many opportunities that come your way each and every day, not every year, not every week or month but every single day.

As you read this message please remember you are the sum total of the choices and experiences you have made in your life.  Now is the time for you to choose and experience success!

Good health or bad health is a choice. it’s your choice. Financial freedom or financial despair is a choice. It’s your choice. Joy and happiness is a choice. It’s you choice. Discovering and using your talents is a choice. It’s your choice. Your success or failure in network marketing is a choice. It’s your choice. Working hard is a choice. It’s your choice.

After reading this message you must make a choice. Remember this! Whatever choice you make, you will realize the benefit or the consequence of that choice. Every choice you make, will afford you a wonderful benefit or a “not so good” consequence. So choose wisely.

Perhaps one of the greatest tragedies experienced by most people is when people can’t recognize an opportunity when it comes their way and when they do, something distracts them and the opportunity is gone forever. Another one is when people quit never realizing just how close they are to succeeding. Another one is when people achieve success they sit back complacently only to see that success dwindle to nothing

The key, if there is a key to your success, is to accept the fact that you have 1,000 talents, yet you only use 10 of them. Once you understand, relate and accept this, you will be well on your way to discovering the other 990 of them.

When I finally realized that I too was only using 10 of my “God Given” talents, it became a very special moment for me, because that was the time I started to evolve as human being and a professional network marketer. That was the time I really understood what my purpose was here on this earth.

God placed me on this earth to try to perfect myself, to be the best that I could be at anything I did. I was placed here to serve my fellow man, to serve others. Once I accepted this many more talents were manifested to me and my purpose was magnified. All these new talents have become my strengths and the more I serve others, the more I am nourished and strengthened.

Back in 2002, my wife and I were three weeks away from losing our home. I felt sorry for myself because I couldn’t get ahead. I was discouraged and I was losing hope. What was really interesting was the fact that my wife Randi never lost hope. She was always encouraging me. She seized an opportunity and through her faith and inspiration she attracted a marvelous opportunity to us. It was network marketing. Through her faith and the impact she had on me, we developed a huge, network marketing business, a business unparalleled anywhere in the industry and now we can now retire fifteen times over and give a lot of money away.

You will never know what your other 990 talents are unless you have faith and belief in your abilities and your future. You must challenge yourself and work even harder and you must have an open mind for opportunity. You must step out of your comfort zone, step into your destiny and step up and aspire higher! Ask yourself these questions?

Do I want to discover the other 990 talents that I never knew I had?
Do I want to help others get ahead and become successful?
Do I want monumental success in my life?
Do I want to live a life of abundance?

If your answer is yes then ask yourself one more question,

“Am I going to do what it takes to get to the Isagenix Celebration this year?

Whatever your answer, please don’t say,  “I can’t afford to go!”

Randi and I have built a massive business of over 1,000,000 members and an income of over $15,000,000. This would have never happened, if we did not attend the Isagenix celebration in 2002.

Sean and Crystal have built a huge business and have earned an income approaching $5,000,000. This would have never happened if they had not attended the Isagenix celebration.

The celebration will kick start your business and the sky will no longer be the limit for you. It is an experience.

You will meet all the top income earners and rub shoulders with the best of the best and you will learn so much and you will have so much fun. Celebration is one massive party.

If you want to discover yourself and your full potential, you can’t afford not to go to celebration!

Love you all

Tony and Randi

Introducing Isagenix New Dairy Free Vegan Alternative Shake

New Berry Shake
Natural Berry Harvest Dairy-free Shake Alternative
IsaLean® Shake Natural Berry Harvest is a premium dairy-free meal replacement shake made from nutritionally complete plant-based protein. Derived from hemp and pea protein, IsaLean Shake in Natural Berry Harvest is loaded with energy-boosting carbohydrates and healthy fats to provide your body with maximum dairy-free nutrition. Ideal for those committed to non-dairy, vegetarian or vegan dietary lifestyles, you'll be on your way to achieving a healthier body while giving it exactly what it needs. Also a great flavor addition to the IsaLean Shake family.
* Highly digestible with quality, bioavailable, plant-based protein 
* Helps maintain and build lean muscle 
* Safe for those with dairy allergies or lactose-intolerance 
* Sensible and effective for those with soy-based allergies 
* Great protein source for vegetarian populations

When John Anderson chose to design a dairy-free, plant-based version of a meal-replacement shake, the Isagenix Founder and Master Formulator would only settle for components that were worthy enough to bear the “IsaLean” name.
The Natural Berry Harvest Shake is a marvel—by any shake’s standards, plant-based or not—for the careful attention paid to its excellent nutritional profile:
  • Your body’s needs for protein are met with a total of 22 grams of protein from hemp and pea, which together boast a complete amino acid profile similar to that of the other IsaLean Shakes.
  • Your heart and blood vessels will thank you for the 8 grams of healthy fats from sources including extra virgin olive oil and sunflower oil (monounsaturated fats), flax and chia seed (omega-3s, -6s, and -9s), and coconut-derived medium-chain triglycerides.
  • Your gut will benefit from 8 grams of dietary fiber that includes a mix of chia seed and gut-healthy prebiotics like inulin and oligosaccharides.
  • Lastly, your senses will be rewarded by the natural flavor of berries within a low-glycemic profile comprising of only 7 grams of sugar from natural, mineral-rich molasses.
That’s not all. John made sure the completely vegetarian meal alternative also possessed its own “whole foods” base of micronutrients contained within a blend of pulps, low-temp spray-dried powders (to retain vitamins and phytochemicals), and juice powders from natural foods. These include a variety of fruits, vegetables, and nuts such as pumpkin, kale, quinoa, broccoli, almonds, carrots, and beets.
“Sprouts, vegetables, and the fruits are the source for naturally occurring vitamins,” John says. “We wanted to create an all-natural, whole food shake as nutritious as possible. Our methods of low temperature spray drying ensure we have unprocessed foods containing all their natural vitamins and phytochemicals.”
No artificial ingredients, no GMOs, no soy
It is hard to appreciate the wonder that is the quality of this plant-based shake without understanding what’s not in it: John did not include any artificial colors or flavors, did not include ingredients from genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and absolutely did not include any soy ingredients of any kind.
“These sources of protein are non-GMO, natural plant sources and have a great amino acid profile when combined. There are so many companies using soy protein and that’s just not acceptable for Isagenix,” John says. In his 33 years as a formulator, John explains he has never used soy protein in any product even prior to its bad publicity.
“We want our products to be 100 percent safe, all natural, and deliver the best nutrition,” he says.
Not just for dairy sensitive individuals and vegetarians
Given the record numbers of people who have sensitivities to different foods such as dairy, soy, or egg, the shake offers a fantastic alternative. The dairy-free alternative is ideal for those with sensitivity to dairy because of lactose intolerance or a milk allergy. Being plant-based, it also suits the lifestyles of those who avoid animal products altogether.
But is the Natural Berry Harvest IsaLean Shake only for those avoiding dairy or animal products? John makes the point that the shake shouldn’t be limited to any subset of the population.
John says, “I believe in full-spectrum nutrition.”
He explains further adding that our ancestral past as hunters and gatherers suggests that as humans we should be incorporating a wide variety of foods including nuts, berries, fruits, and vegetables. “It’s because there are vital micronutrients contained in these whole foods we need to maintain a healthy body and support all the building blocks we need,” he says.
“Natural Berry Harvest is not just for vegetarians and vegans, but also designed for those who consume whey as an added source of protein and alternative meal,” he says. “Everyone (not just vegetarians) should incorporate this shake in their nutritional arsenal of food supplementation.”
A “full-spectrum” of healthy fats, fiber, and natural sweetness
The Natural Berry Harvest has John’s principle for “full-spectrum nutrition” at its core. The evidence is found not just within the protein and the fruit-vegetable-sprout blends, but also in the sources for healthy fats, carbohydrate, and dietary fiber.
Consider its healthy fats—a mix of sunflower oil, extra virgin olive oil, flax, coconut—offering monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (omega-3s, omega-6s, omega-9), as well as medium-chain triglycerides. Most other shakes on the market only supply soy oil comprising of mainly omega-6s.
The dietary fiber includes prebiotic soluble oligosaccharides and inulin to promote growth of good bacteria in the intestine. John says his choice for including prebiotics are because they are the “preferred fuel source for the primary good bacteria in the gut” and this, in turn, can help reduce the growth of bad bacteria. In addition, it includes insoluble fiber from flax and chia seed for bulk and regularity.
The natural sweetness of the shakes is created through a complex mix of mineral-rich molasses, fruit powders, and stevia. The flavor is rounded out with tapioca maltodextrin giving the shake the smoothness of taste not often found in plant-based shakes.
One of the questions that Isagenix customers’ may have is about Natural Berry Harvest’s apparent lack of additional digestive enzymes, which are prominent features of the dairy-based IsaLean Shake flavors. John says there is a reason for this and it has to do with pudding and ice cream for kids.
“Parents have asked if their children can have their shakes like ice cream and the answer has always been ‘no’ until now. The other shakes should not be frozen because of the enzymes. The new Natural Berry Harvest IsaLean Shake can be frozen as a berry ice cream or as popsicles, or it can be mixed with less water to enjoy as a berry pudding.”
In just listening to John discuss each of the shake’s many attributes, you can recognize the sense of pride a master has for a truly unique accomplishment. The Master Formulator sums it up this way, “The Natural Berry Harvest IsaLean Shake is a great-tasting new flavor and a nutritious, balanced dairy-free alternative to our cornerstone whey protein-based meal replacement IsaLean Shake.”

Randi Escobar Featured in Networking Times "A Seed of Hope"

My mother, Randi Escobar, was recently featured in the Networking Times Magazine. This is the largest such publication in Network Marketing. Many of you might not know that my mother is quite the success story in her own right! Did you know that she never missed a single day of school in her entire life, not only that, she never had lower than a 4.0. She was the Valedictorian and earned a full ride scholarship to Arizona State University. My mom is a professional writer. She has written many screenplays, books and songs. She's had songs featured in movies. Her dream is to do just that, write. My mom could very easily be the next J.K. Rowling if she wasn't having so much fun supporting Isagenix. As we like to say, Network Marketing is attracting the best from all walks of life and my powerhouse mother is no exception. Her proudest accomplishment is her 11 grandchildren and that they are all actively involved in our christian faith. Love you Mom!  Sean Anthony Escobar

Is Failure a Good Thing? -Tony Escobar

Copyright: January 2013, from the book “Step Out, Step In and Step Up”                  
By Tony Escobar

For many years I was a committed weight lifter. When I was 41 years old I bench pressed 545 pounds, dead-lifted 625 and squatted 550 pounds. That is what you call a 1725 pound triple. What was amazing about this accomplishment is my body weight was only 220 pounds. My wife Randi was only 130 pounds when she squatted 240 pounds at the age of 37. It even amazes me to this day that I actually benched and squatted 2.5 times my body weight and dead-lifted almost 3 times my body weight. If there is one thing I learned about my weight lifting achievements is that I made it to the top by doing a few things right. The first thing I did was I challenged myself everyday I worked out, because I knew that muscles only grow and get stronger if you work them till they fail. Weightlifting is perhaps the only sport where you succeed by failing every day.

When my wife and I decided to get into network marketing we knew that our eventual success could only be achieved through overcoming obstacles, making mistakes and failing once in a while. This is why we brought our power lifting, training philosophy and attitude with us when we started our network marketing business.

Your muscles grow and get stronger by doing more than you think you can do through persistent effort. In network marketing your attitude, passion, enthusiasm and determination grows by doing more through this same persistent and determined effort.

Network marketing is not about being in the right place at the right time, it is about being in the right place all the time. It’s not about luck, it’s about hard work an overcoming self-limiting attitudes, perceptions and learning from adversity, difficulty and disappointment. Network marketing is not about small steps and trying, its about quantum leaps and doing.

“What is luck? One things for sure, if you don’t succeed at something the first time, that’s luck.”

When Randi and I first jumped into network marketing we asked many network-marketers who had quit the business many probing questions. We developed our strategy from the answers we received. Our record-breaking strategy was,

1.  Teaching our distributors to get prepared and ready for their businesses by letting go of their past mistakes and organizing themselves.
2.  Teaching our distributors the importance of having a companion to work with.
3.  Teaching distributors to overcome the fear of talking to people.
4.  Encouraging our distributors to educate themselves about their company, products, compensation plan and about the people that work the industry.
5.  Teaching our distributors to learn from their mistakes
6.  Teaching our distributors to avoid distraction
7.  Teaching our distributors to reject rejection and to learn and grow from rejection
8.  Teaching our distributors to avoid selling products. Potential customers are sick and tired of being sold, they want to be convinced and amazed with passion, enthusiasm and product knowledge.
9.  Teaching our distributors to focus on their purpose, their mission and not the commission. Focus on the mission and the commission always follows the mission.
10. Teaching our distributors to follow through effectively.

Failure is easy, just quit! Adversity and challenges are always there and will always be there; accept them as learning and growing experiences and challenge yourself even more.

“You will never fear failure as long as you are determined never to fail.” 

Do more than is expected of you. Success or failure is a head game that can always be conquered, if you make every effort to overcome and win the game. 

If you believe that there are confines and limits on your talents and abilities you’d better clear your head and get those thoughts out of your head. You will find yourself bumping into many obstacles and potholes and you will make many mistakes on your journey to success. These are all good things to be grateful for!

Mistakes, obstacles and even failure are easily overcome if you don’t quit. Quitting is complete and absolute. Unconditional quitting is unconditional failure and must be avoided and circumvented at all costs, because quitting is unconditional confirmation of your perceived limitations. Quitting reinforce your sense of ostensible incompetence.
Your passion and your talents always grow through persistence, determination and effort, especially when you recognize failure as a wonderful opportunity to improve yourself and grow stronger.

Distributors with a “growth attitude” never place limitations on what they can do, especially when they're learning from their mistakes, disappointments and even failure.

“Failure is a temporary circumstance or event. Quitting is what makes it lasting and permanent.”

If you are a distributor with a optimistic mindset, then you will use rejection, mistakes, disappointment and failure to propel yourself onward and forward.

“The optimist speaks about their future because they have let go of their past, the pessimist often speaks of their past because they haven’t seized their future.” 

You have to be incisive and perceptive about when you choose to challenge yourself. Don’t ever be afraid to push the envelope and take a risk. It is so very important to know that taking a risk, making mistakes and failing, is how you grow and succeed; it’s how you get stronger. Taking a risk and failing is a marvelous opportunity to lift yourself higher than you ever thought possible.

“If you always do what you’ve always done, you will always be what you’ve always been and you will never be what you could’ve been and you will never get what you could have got.”

Understand that working as hard as you possibly can, going the extra mile is the key to maximizing your potential and achieving the success you are looking for.

If you want to experience excellence, challenge yourself above and beyond your ability and your capability. It’s OK to struggle sometimes.

Building muscles and becoming stronger hurts because you push yourself to failure. Building your business takes effort, hard work and the same amount of pushing. You have to push yourself beyond what you perceive as your limitations.
“Two prisoners looking at the same set of bars, one sees bars to contain him, the other sees a challenge to liberate him.”

I have rubbed shoulders with some of the most successful business owners in the world, people who earn billions of dollars, not millions. I have spoken from the stage all over the world to thousands of business people and I have heard from many.

“Knowledge is knowing what has to be done, talent is knowing you can do it, skill is knowing how to get it done and your passion and purpose gets it done.”

One thing that I have found is that most of them failed half the time, yet they never quit! Most veterans of network marketing that I have talked to tell me that they failed half the time also, but remember leaders never quit, and quitters never get the opportunity to lead. An hour of study done every day and talking to ten people a day every day will ensure your success in anything you do.

“The greatest tragedy in network marketing is people quitting never realizing how close they were to succeeding.”

No matter how hard you study, how hard you work, how many calls you make or how many people you talk to, you can always do more!

“Many wish for it only a few work for it.”

Just like lifting weights, work those muscles to failure every day and you can literally watch them grow and become stronger. Work your business with the same commitment, determination and strength of mind and you can literally watch your business grow beyond your wildest dreams.

All growth and progress depends upon your effort. Effort is spelled “hard work.”
