AVINI HEALTH – A COMPANY OF DESTINY

Art Williams is 80 years old and is still going strong. He spoke before thousands at a huge Dave Ramsey EntreLeadership event. Art was the original catalyst that kicked off Dave Ramsey’s immensely successful business! I have listened to his amazingly powerful speech a few times, and I hope you will too! Listen here

Art wasn’t always interested in business. He was a content high school football coach; and then his father passed away at a young age. It was tragic enough to lose his father and for his mother to lose her husband so prematurely, but when the shockingly small benefit check arrived from his dad’s whole-life insurance policy – he was shaken. Although his dad had paid a lot of money in premiums over the years, the actual cash benefit was small. Art questioned his CPA cousin about it, who explained that ‘whole life’ was a bad investment; it’s better to buy term insurance and invest the difference.

He discovered that whole life was a colossal cash cow for the insurance industry; although they sold the higher-commission whole life product to their clients, every insurance salesperson carried ‘term insurance’ for their own families.

He got mad! He became so passionate that ‘Buy Term and Invest the Difference’ became his crusade. He wanted to destroy cash value -he called it ‘trash value’- insurance after he saw what a ‘screw job’ it was for his parents. He was obsessed with correcting this injustice!

Art’s impact has been astonishing. By enrolling others in his crusade to destroy ‘the enemy’ and eliminate their ‘trash value’ insurance products, his business soon exceeded the combined sales of Prudential and New York Life. The entire life insurance industry had to change because of him.

Today there is a new ‘enemy’ to disrupt! While modern medicine has provided many miracles, conversely the health care system itself is the #3 cause of death! Drugs and surgery are a two-edged sword, lives can be wonderfully impacted or seriously harmed.

My mom never knew her father, as he died in his mid-twenties from appendicitis. Seventy-five years later, my oldest son had the same thing happen. However today an appendicitis is typically just putting up with the inconvenience of a simple surgery instead of certain death. Almost everyone today knows someone who’s had appendicitis and they recovered from it only because of modern medicine. One of my daughters contracted spinal meningitis and would certainly be dead but for antibiotics.

However, 3 out of 4 adults age 50+ take at least one prescription medication on a regular basis. More than 8 in 10 (86 percent) of those age 65+ regularly take prescription drugs, and 53 percent take four or more regular medications. If drugs were the answer, then we should be the healthiest people on the planet...we aren’t - not by a long shot!

Noted economist Paul Zane Pilzer stated that: “It is more profitable for medical suppliers to produce products consumers use for the rest of their lives than to make products that a consumer might use only once. Invariably, this means developing products that treat the symptoms of diseases rather than the cause or the cure.”

Avini Health is a company with products that are powerful enough to disrupt a 3.5 trillion dollar-per-year industry that’s ripe for disrupting. Avini Health is a wonderful place to serve and make a difference. At this very moment, you are at the right place and the right time.

Said Art Williams of his mission: This business is not about making money. It’s about doing what’s right for families. It’s about correcting an injustice. It’s about writing the best policy you can for a family, one that will give them hope in the worst of circumstances...like losing a mom or dad. It’s about recruiting people who are good people, who care about things like honesty and integrity. It’s about running your business with the highest possible ethics. It’s not just about building it big, it’s about building it right!

I believe that the world can be a better place without so many drugs pushed on us with direct-to-consumer advertising. The drugs on TV might not be the miracle drug that heals, just symptomatic relief along with many side-effects. Profit and politics over any efficacy

How To Change Your Life and Your Business - Art Williams

To paraphrase the preamble to Art Williams book, COACH:
Where, now, will the American people find a champion willing and able to [change our present course]? Where will we find a man with the temerity to face these latter-day “untouchables,” to stand in the path of this juggernaut and cry “Halt”?

When he is found and takes the job and does it, he will never be forgotten, for he will have brought the American people more [health and] financial independence and self-respect than a hundred years of [current health-care]” - Norman F. Dacey

Art’s book, ALL YOU CAN DO, is one of the most important books to help me build my business.

Consider that YOU are much more powerful and capable than you’ve so far allowed yourself to be. Being inspired by a good cause will change everything!

We hope you decide to join our mission to transform the culture of wellness in the world. Why have a job when you can be on a mission!

Dave & Valerie Johnson

Purpose is the knowledge of what one wants and a burning desire to possess it.

A Recipe For Success

Avini, an Invitation for Growth

If you really knew we had the biggest breakthrough since penicillin, how would you approach people?

If you really knew that doing this with ALL OUT MASSIVE ACTION, you could change your life forever - Would you? Start with a WHY and then add your DESIRE.

Avini products create PASSION! No one has products that are more exciting. The marketplace for these life transforming products is immeasurable. We have the most fair, equitable, generous, simple, and doable compensation plan on the planet. The timing is absolutely perfect. The only unknown factor in the equation of success is YOU. This is an empowering, and yet sobering thought: You make all the difference!

One of the most powerful aspects of Avini Health is that it is so simple, therefore it can be so duplicable. Keep it simple and you will keep it duplicable!

DESIRE PURPOSE ATTITUDE COMMITMENT BELIEF ENTHUSIASM

This business is totally and entirely what your mind and your heart make of it. You will change your whole life through changing your attitude of mind. Thinking DOES make it so! Read good books. Listen to good audio presentations. Surround yourself with good friends and associates. You are the average of the five people with whom you associate most. Be around people who are doing what you want to do and are going where you want to go.

People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

To attract, you must be attractive. People will join you when you become the right person. Develop within yourself a loving and attractive personality. Genuinely love people and be interested in others. You will naturally make them a friend before you make them a customer or a business partner. People want to be around happy people. Happy people sell. Unhappy people do not sell.

FIND A MENTOR. Connect with your upline who are successful with Avini Health. Call them every day! Introduce your people to them. Don’t try to be the Lone Ranger. You are in business for yourself, but you shouldn’t try to be in business by yourself. Successful people do certain things a certain way. Learn these same certain things and then go do them. It is vital that you model yourself after successful people! You are the average of those 5 people with whom you associate with the most.

Build a Team that Other People Want to Be a Part of.

BUILD A LIST OF NAMES. Make a list, check it twice, find out who is Ambitious and Nice, and Hungry! Let the magic and power of large numbers work for you. Have a large list of names. See lots of people! Success becomes a certainty as you sponsor compassionate people who have gumption and are hungry!
The person who does the most good, for the greatest number of people, is the most successful.

I am looking for people who are looking for me!

APPROACH. You’ll be sized-up in mere seconds. Have total confidence, conviction, and enthusiasm. Your script must be part of you. Speak from the heart.

I recommend you start with people whom you already know and like. Begin the call with: I need your help, will you do me a personal favor? Invariably they will respond with: Sure, what do you need? I just listened to a short video with a biochemist, talking about something that appears to me as a real health breakthrough. It’s about 6 minutes long. I know that we’re both interested in health, and you're a smart person. If I text you the link, will you watch it and let me know what you think?

Our job is to get people curious enough to watch the short video. After they watch it, their job is to decide what they would like to do with Avini.

I share with people that they will soon discover that our products can transform someone’s life, even giving them a ‘second chance’ to be healthy again! Avini Health feels much more like being on a mission instead of having a job. We can change the whole world, one person at a time, and think about what can happen as we scale this up through implementing our business plan! This is going to be huge, and YOU can be a big part of it.

I admire who you are and believe we could really work well together.

Avini Health is an exciting, fun, and profitable business opportunity. Talk about our products and the business! Cover the three fundamental motivators: FUN! MONEY! MISSION! Act like a leader and you will attract leaders.

FIND THREE KEY PEOPLE. When you approach people, some are going to be interested. Many will say no. Some will want to buy products. Others will sign up and sell a few products or simply buy wholesale, and a select few will join you and build an empire. You are in the sorting business. Talking to enough people ensures the numbers will work in your favor. Be thoroughly invested in the whole process, rather than each individual outcome.

Love everyone. Someone might say no today but yes next month... or next year. People do change their minds. Always leave the door open for them. This is another reason to follow up! However, you do need 3 leaders who are ready TODAY!

How do you identify a leader?

The leader test: 1. They call you. 2. They give you names. 3. They invest in their business. 4. They go to meetings. Your essential job now is to demonstrate that it works by helping them sponsor their own people. If you have three good people and you help each of them get three good people and everyone invests in products to use and share, you soon have a strong foundation laid out for an enduring and profitable business. Teach 3 to Reach 3

TOOLS. I built my business through sharing information. Good tools will touch people and make them think. It will arouse curiosity and they will want to know more. If they listen to one audio, I will share another. Keep feeding them information. Audios/Videos/Literature are seeds. If you want a bountiful Avini harvest, plant lots of information!.

PRESENTATION. This is a show-and-tell business. If you can make people feel good with our products, you’re almost there! Almost half of the population has some type of chronic pain. If they do, take out your Plus Relief and ask them to apply it to where it hurts.

Silently in my mind I affirm. I care how you feel, I love you, I want to help you, and hope I am making you feel better. This will create a bond with them because you really do care!

REFERRALS. “Let me ask you a question: If you could only say one name, who is the very most compassionate, ambitious person that you know? You know lots of people; I know you are thinking of someone. just say the name of the person whose face you see in your mind right now. What is their name? What do they do? Where do they live? What is their phone number? Would they be there now? Let’s give them a call!” Look at them expectantly with a smile and quiet confidence. Practice this dialog. It works! When you learn to get referrals, you will never run out of names! Another good question: “If you were going to do this business, of all the people you know, who is that one person who you would really want to have on your team?”

When you call this person, it might go like this: Hello is this Mary? Hi, this is Dave Johnson. I don’t know you, but I am here with your friend Julie. Do you have a moment to talk? I want to share something that Julie just said about you a moment ago. I asked Julie a business question: If we were to bring on another person to work with us, and of all the many people Julie knows - of all of them - who would be that one person she would most like to work with, and who could really add to our team, who would that be? And she said, you - I just had to call and let you know! Actually, we are looking for another person. I have no idea if this would be the right time in your life, or if you’re open for a new challenge, but just based on what Julie said about you, I would love to meet you sometime and show you what we’re doing. It never hurts to talk! And I think you will find it interesting at the very least. This works terrifically, and you get to offer someone a unique compliment that they will always remember!

You can go through a name list with this same effective approach. Just don’t call that fifth person and say: Hi Sally, of all the people Julie knows - you came up number 5 on our list! Just say ‘and Julie said your name!’ and so Sally will assume that she is number one!

Another business-building tip that works: After the presentation, I tell them how much I enjoyed being able to share with them, that what I just showed them was also a description of my job. I get to make new friends and ‘Show-and Tell’ incredible products that consistently surprise and delight and share an amazing story that just might change someone’s whole life! I talk about how much fun we can have building a team together.

THREE-WAY PHONE CALLS are essential. Introduce all of your prospects and new distributors to your active up-line. These calls reassure your people that they are joining a successful team that is already a ‘going concern’ and there will be good support. That they are connected with a successful leader who is practiced and knows what to say. By hearing them, you will learn to say all the right stuff. Do three-ways OFTEN!

Zoom EVENTS / HOME MEETINGS. There is magic and power with a collaboration of excited Avini Team Members. Getting your people to group events can make the difference between success and failure. Put real importance and urgency on upcoming events. The most important event is always the next event. Here they will catch the vision!

FOLLOW UP FOLLOW UP FOLLOW UP FOLLOW UP FOLLOW UP!

Most of my people didn’t join immediately after the first contact. Have lots of people somewhere in the process. Call them about upcoming events or share a new audio that they just have to hear. Don’t camp out on their front porch. Stay in touch with them in a friendly way. Work with people that you enjoy being around anyway so that the worst result is you are making another friend! Find a creative way to stay in touch. Success is long-term relationship building.

PRODUCT FLOW - We get paid for moving products to consumers. That’s it. And we get paid more when we move more products! Start by being your own best customer! If you tell people these products are really wonderful and that this is your career, but you have no product. Well, it just doesn’t sound like you really believe in it.

Purchasing your product legitimately becomes tax-deductible when you are thinking, “I need to believe in something before I can try to sell it.” This is due diligence, sharing it is promo/demo/samples, all of which are tax-deductible business expenses. And all product purchases count towards rank advancement!

How do you build and lead a team? Learn > Do > Teach > Repeat

SUCCESS IS A RECIPE - Building a business is like making a cake, following the recipe exactly, and then sharing the recipe. A big business is simply a small business that did the right things. Start your business as though it were the biggest business in the world. Faithfully follow the recipe over and over again. Share this same recipe.

What would your business be like if everyone were doing exactly what you’re doing? Be what you want Avini to be!

Success is all about creating a Club that People want to belong to! - When broken down to its most common denominator success is achieved through one person connecting with another person. Success results in your ability to get a large group of people to do these simple things consistently over an extended period of time.

THE SPEED OF THE GROUP IS DETERMINED BY THE SPEED OF THE LEADER

Our Faith Shapes Our Destiny - What if God really cared about your work? To think that God actually works through you in your labors and is always there to help you! There are innumerable people who hurt, health wise or financially. Many are praying at this moment for an answer. Pray to be led to those who may benefit from what we have. God does notice us, and he watches over us, but it is usually through another person that he meets our needs. By becoming the answer to someone’s prayer we often find the answer to our own. Prayer is the most powerful source of strength. Pray always!

THINK BIG ACT BIG PRAY BIG AND YOU’LL BE BIG!

Avini, an Invitation for Growth

Growth

Avini, an Invitation for Growth

Oh my goodness, we are really growing in Avini Health, and we’re only 4 months old! Now it’s September, this is historically the very best growth time for MLM. Kids are getting back to school and people are getting home from summer vacations. It’s starting to get dark earlier; and mentally everyone is settling down and getting back to work.

This is the right time to HUSTLE! Give your business full attention and run as fast as you can right up through the week of Christmas.

Keep in mind that you are sharing because you love what these products do, and you don’t want people to be without them. Don’t be afraid to speak to the everyday people around you.

If you keep a running list of the people you encounter during a week, you will connect with far more people than you realize! Do not drop the ball in connecting because connecting is the whole key!

Doing it – and doing it consistently – is hard. But even harder still, is to get away from it and then trying to get started again! After all these years, I still need to actively develop my mindset. Every day! I still thrive only when I read and listen to good stuff every day.
Talking with people about Avini Health products every day nourishes my soul!

It’s always a numbers game. Along with desire and belief, ACTION determines SUCCESS. If I can maintain an attitude of positivity and actively sell products and sponsor people, then I know that other people can too. If I can change one person’s whole world, then with a dedicated team, together we will change the world!

I love what thoughtful people say about this:
The future is not some place we are going, but one we are creating. The paths to it are not found but made, and the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination.
-John Schaar

The size of the future you actually experience will largely be determined by one factor. The people you choose to connect with. When you invite people who are truly committed to growth, into every aspect of your life, your own potential for growth becomes truly unlimited.
-Dan Sullivan

If we don't try, then we don't do; and if we don't do, then why are we here?
-Shenandoah

Success is earned one single day at a time. One step at a time. One phone call at a time. One phone call can be transformational! One single meeting (that meeting that you didn't want to go to, but you decided to go anyway) can change everything! We are creating a culture of success. We are the movers and shakers of the world. We are the makers of tomorrow. The Momentum Makers, the Music Makers. We help blind people see. We show people a better way!
-Dave Johnson

Our Mission

What is Avini Health? Why are we different?

Our Mission

What is Avini Health? Why are we different?

You Didn’t Come This Far... To Only Come This Far.
WE’RE ON A MISSION - with a Fresh Start!

We have an obsessive enthusiasm for one thing: Changing people for the better, and this is evident in everything we do, everything we are, and everything we strive to become.

We hold a deep sense of responsibility to create a sustainable company that empowers people for success. One that people can trust to be ethical and transparent. To stay true to who we are, every company decision is based on these guiding principles.

What we say is what we do
Doing right is the only option
People (and their success) are the first priority
Positively impact every person we come into contact with
Community is our culture

THE VISION:
If you want the truth, it’s easier to be a distributor than it is to start a network marketing company. But sometimes, the easy road isn’t what you’re called to do.

After many years in the industry, we became disenchanted with the status quo. We were tired of seeing good people, who were trying to improve their lives, being taken advantage of.

When we could no longer find a company we trusted to build a team with, we knew it was time to fix the problem and create our own.

We were asked: Why are you doing this? And the answer is simple. Because we can! Success for us is defined by how many people are better off because we are here.

The bar has been set so low in Network Marketing that companies have lost sight of the real reason why they exist.

At Avini Health, we’re raising that bar. We are building a community that will support you. We are creating a culture that breathes excitement and hope for your future.

People are searching for more. We are opening that door and pouring hope on their dreams.

To make this company and our community worth building, we have to do what’s never been done before: create transparency and really put people first. This simple yet disruptive idea will set a new industry standard and give people an opportunity that makes the effort to succeed worth it.

PRODUCTS THAT LIFT YOU UP.
When it comes to our products,. It’s what our products clear out — toxins, pollutants, impurities, and pathogens; even pain — to create a clean, healthy body that can fix itself.

GREATER REWARDS.

SUCCESS COMES FROM COMMUNITY.
Make way for an opportunity that puts YOU first. Avini Health goes beyond a business that just makes money. It’s a chance to be part of something greater than yourself. Join our mission to leave everyone we connect with better than before.

GREATER COMPENSATION.
EARN MORE THAN INDUSTRY STANDARD.
You haven’t seen compensation like this before. We believe those who do the work deserve the reward. Learn how we can help you reach your financial dreams.

WHY Avini Health?
Listen, if you are fulfilled with what you’re doing in life then you may not be interested in what we offer. But if you’re tired of working long hours without the compensation you deserve or feeling like you’re not supported, then it’s time for change.

We understand where you’re coming from. And that’s why we created Avini Health. This is a company that is committed to put people first, every time. Our culture goes beyond the individual, it’s built around community that will grow and support each other along the way.

At the end of the day, we want to give you an opportunity to make room for the good, not just in your own life, but in the lives of everyone you meet.

Why not now?
If you’re not satisfied with your life, make the choice to change it – today! What we offer is simple, yet disruptive. And, we know many people are searching for for this.

Avini Health is all about you. It’s not about big corporate offices or elaborate corporate travel, it’s about putting as much money as we can into your pocket.

The question we keep getting is, “Can you really pay out that much?” The answer is, absolutely. It’s what the rest of the industry doesn’t want you to know, that you can make a lot more than what you’re currently making. And the time to do so, is now.

A REWARDS PLAN YOU CAN WIN WITH.
Welcome to our revival: a shift from traditional, confusing plans of compensation to simple and transparent ways you can earn maximum rewards for your efforts.

By definition, a revival is an improvement in the strength and fortunes of someone.
In this case, that someone is you!

Steve Jobs said:
I was lucky enough to spend my life in finding A players, getting the best people together - We were on a mission from God – it was the hardest and happiest moment in my life, an intense and cherished experience. Creating a beautiful culture, creating products of spirit and enlightenment.

Disrupting the sick-care industry one happy customer at a time!

Affirmations Work!

Affirmations Work!

Affirmations

What do you think about? This is an important question because our life is what our thoughts make of it. These are ideas that have changed my whole life. We really do become what we think about. We can direct our lives by directing our thoughts.

One of my first teachers concerning this all-important subject was Zig Ziglar. I first heard him speak over 40 years ago. I remember him saying that it is perfectly normal to talk to yourself, just as long as you don’t catch yourself saying, “huh?!” He also introduced me to the term SNIOP. This is an acronym for someone who is Susceptible to the Negative Influence of Other People. Zig explained that the best way to get the flu is to hang around people who have the flu. On the other hand, if you want to be successful, it's important to hang around successful people. You are the average of the 5 people you associate most with!

What do you really want? Put yourself in an environment that nourishes your expectations. “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better and better” is a good affirmation. It is also a good philosophy to live by. Success is most likely to occur when you have the right attitude of mind, combined with the right daily activities.

Masaaki Imai wrote a book called Kaizen: The Key to Japan’s Competitive Success. He says that Kaizen is “The single most important concept in Japanese management.” It is the real reason behind Japan’s economic miracle and is the unifying thread of business success. Kaizen is a truth he calls “breathtakingly simple.” What is this concept? Just this: A philosophy of continuing gradual improvement in one’s personal and working life.

What is the big difference between successful and unsuccessful people? Besides knowing what they want and having a plan to get there, a big revelation to me was to discover that successful people might not want to do certain things. Successful people make a habit of doing things they don’t like or want to do – they just do it anyway.

People form habits, and habits form futures.

A good question to ask yourself is: “What is one thing I don’t want to do today, but if I did it, it would make my business and/or life better?” We all want our children to turn out right, so I have tried to introduce this great thought early in their life. When they say they don’t want to do something, I tell them: “One of the great discoveries in life is that even if you don’t want to do something, you can still do it anyway, so go do it!” I agree when they say it’s not fair, and share with them two other eternal truths... “Life isn’t fair” and “Dad is always right.”

I am empowered by George Bernard Shaw’s statement: People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them.

I used to be afraid to talk to people. To motivate myself to do this essential task I would say, “Action Conquers Fear” and “Do the things that you fear, and fear will flee.” I would also say, “I love the telephone - The telephone is my friend! I love to call people and talk to them about my healthy products!”

Paul J. Meyer states that: Affirmation is the act of expressing your belief in the truth of a particular statement.

In the beginning, when it was easy to be discouraged, I would say to myself, “Winners never quit, and quitters never win.” I repeated the words of Og Mandino many times: “I will persist until I succeed. I was not delivered unto this world in defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by the shepherd. I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep. I will hear not those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious. Let them join the sheep. The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny. I will persist until I succeed!”

An affirmation I personalized from David Schwartz, the author of “The Magic of Thinking Big,” was, Dave Johnson, meet Dave Johnson—an important, a really important person. Dave, you’re a big thinker, so think big. Think Big about everything. You’ve got plenty of ability to do a first-class job so do a first-class job. Dave, you believe in Happiness, Progress, and Prosperity. So: talk only Happiness, talk only Progress, talk only Prosperity. You have lots of drive, Dave, lots of drive. So put that drive to work. Nothing can stop you Dave, nothing. Dave, you’re enthusiastic. Let your enthusiasm show through. Dave Johnson, you were a great fellow yesterday and you’re going to be an even greater fellow today. Now go to it, Dave. Go forward. (Insert your name and recite this every morning for the next thirty days.)

An affirmation by Jeff Ashby is: "I attract success because I am successful! I am a master of my mind! I make good habits slaves to my burning desire for wealth and inner peace! I have priceless friendships and true financial prosperity engulfs me.

I attract success because I am successful! AmpLIFEi provides an opportunity to build a business of momentum! People around me feel the positive vibrations and share the vision that keeps me steadfast in my mind and enduring in my purposes! People helping people are my greatest asset!

I attract success because I am successful! Enthusiasm is the driving force behind my successful AmpLIFEi business! My enthusiasm tramples over prejudice and opposition, spurns inaction, embraces consistent follow up, and like an avalanche, overwhelms and engulfs all obstacles in my path!

I attract success because I am successful! I listen with empathy and understand through love. I seek after the Still Small Voice and heed its promptings. I am a peacemaker. My home is a place of peace and contentment, where love abounds between husband and wife, parents, and children. AmpLIFEi has empowered me, because I don't need a JOB!

I attract success because I AM SUCCESSFUL!!!”

I have often asked a friend if he is excited and he responds, “I was born excited!”? He loves to talk about AOMA: All Out Massive Action. I love the phrase, “Anybody can be up when they’re up, but successful people have learned to be up, even when they’re down – always be positive!”

Dennis Williams states that at some point in life all of us are going to fit in one of two categories: “wish-I-woulda” or “glad-I-did.” Brenda Hanley knows someone who prods herself into action by affirming: “Git ‘er done!” She also refers to an 85-year-old lady who uses the phrase “Suck it up, princess!”

There is no chance, no destiny, no fate
that can circumvent, or hinder, or control
the firm resolve of a determined soul!

Have you heard of STP? “See the Picture. See the People. Show the Plan. Sell the Product. Stop the Procrastination.”

  • Do it! Do it Right! Do it Right Now!
  • If it is to be, it is up to me.
  • The speed of the group is determined by the speed of the leader.

  • “Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” -Teddy Roosevelt

Reasons for Failure:

  • They do the right thing, but not enough of it
  • They do enough, but not of the right thing
  • They don’t identify their objective
  • They don’t equip themselves for success
  • They don’t establish lines of communication
  • They don’t get rid of excess baggage, especially the negative

Jeff Vanblaricum felt so strongly about affirmations that he made personal recordings. He fell asleep each night listening to himself program a successful future.

  • Today is the beginning of a new day; God has given me this day to use as I will!
  • I can waste it or use it for good, but what I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it!
  • When tomorrow comes, it will be gone forever, leaving in its place something I have exchanged for it!
  • I want it to be good, and not evil!
  • Success and not failure!
  • Gain and not loss!
  • Love and not indifference!
  • In order that I shall not regret the price that I have paid for it!

From Louise Hay:

  • I am an open channel for divine ideas to flow through me, and the creativity of the universe now expresses itself through me!
  • Whatever I need comes to me. Everything I need to know is revealed to me!
  • I am divinely guided, protected, and inspired, and my way is made smooth and easy!
  • If there is anyone I meet or think about today that irritates me in any way, I simply bless them with love, and the love I send to them returns to me multiplied, and I will benefit in ways that I cannot even imagine!
  • Whatever I give out returns to me!
  • I cast my bread upon the waters, and it returns to me a million-fold!

From Og Mandino:

  • I greet this day with love in my heart!
  • For this is the greatest secret of success in all ventures!
  • Muscle can split a shield, and even destroy life, but only the unseen power of love can open the hearts of men and women, and until I master this art I will remain no more than a peddler in the marketplace!
  • I make love my greatest weapon, and none on whom I call can defend against it's force!
  • My reasoning they may counter, my speech they may distrust, my apparel they may disapprove, my face they may reject, and even my bargains may cause them suspicion, yet my love will melt all hearts, liken to the sun whose rays soften the coldest clay!
  • And how shall I greet each whom I meet?
  • In only one way: in silence and to myself, I say "I love you". Though spoken in silence, these words shine in my eyes, unwrinkle my brow, bring a smile to my lips, and an echo to my voice and their heart will be moved!
  • And most of all, I will love myself!
  • For when I do, I will zealously inspect all things that enter my body, my mind, my heart, and my soul!
  • Never will I overindulge the requests of my flesh, rather I will cherish my body with cleanliness and moderation.
  • Never will I allow my mind to be attracted to evil and despair; rather I will uplift it with the wisdom and knowledge of the ages.
  • Never will I allow my soul to become complacent and satisfied, rather I will feed it with meditation and prayer.
  • Never will I allow my heart to become small and bitter, rather I will share it and it will grow and warm the earth!
  • I greet this day with love in my heart!
  • I become a great salesman!
  • If I have no other qualities, I can succeed with love alone; and without it I will fail though I possess all the knowledge and skills of the world!
  • I greet this day with love in my heart, and I succeed!

 

  • I accept that a benevolent power is working through me and in me to manifest goodness and abundance in my life and in the lives of others!
  • I know how to be rich in every way, and I know how to help others become rich, too!
  • My income exceeds my outflow!
  • Thank You for Your Unfailing and Superabundant Providence!
  • Everything always falls into place, in its own time and in its own way!
  • My natural state is a state of vibrant health, energy, and vitality!
  • Of the Abundance of the Lord, the earth is full!!
  • I recognize that there is only one Mind! I realize that my mind is part of the Universal Creative Mind! Therefore, when I speak my word, the Universal Creative Mind acts upon my word without hesitation!

Brian Tracy states that Affirmations are most effective when stated positively, using present tense, and are personal (using “I”). These positive, assertive statements say yes to our potential. By repeating them over and over strongly with feeling, confidence, and enthusiasm you will drive them deep into your subconscious. Whatever the conscious mind believes and accepts, the subconscious will act and obey instructions to bring it into physical reality.

Our lives are directed by the content and quality of our thoughts. Whatever we think in our mind we move toward it. Be careful what you think about, because our thoughts also have a power on those around us!

The 3 P’s

  • Affirmations must be Personal “I”
  • Affirmations must be Positive
  • Affirmations must be in Present Tense

What is it that you desire? You have limitless possibilities!

From someone who believes in you,

Diet and lifestyle are at the root of all health and disease. Damage to the gut microbiome is a chief characteristic of most of the modern diseases.

The engine that drives human health isn’t even human! You’ve got friends in low places – trillions of them! Your gut microbiome is just as much of an ecosystem as the Amazon rainforest. Biodiversity is critically important to an ecosystem. When things are working the way they’re supposed to, we have a diverse and abundant community of microbes living in harmony in our colon. The colon is healthy and strong with an intact barrier of cells to keep everything in its rightful place, and our microbiota plays its natural role as the workhorses of human health.

They are not passive observers. They are what you eat! Our food is also their food. Every single bite flows downstream to your gut microbes. Each dietary choice you make will empower a specific group of microbes, while others will languish. If you permanently remove a food group, the microbes that thrive on that food will starve into extinction.

The healthy bacteria will reward us by molding our food into something that reduces inflammation and promotes health and balance. But the opposite can also be true. Unhealthy food feeds unhealthy microbes, and they punish us by creating compounds that inflame our body.

We use the term dysbiosis to refer to the loss of harmony and balance within the gut. Damage or microbial disruption causes you to have a higher proportion of inflammatory microbes. The good stuff falls by the wayside, making more room for the not so good stuff to flood your gut.

This is problematic, because now the colon wall is no longer protected by a healthy community of anti-inflammatory which increases intestinal permeability – some call this leaky gut – this leads to the spillage of bacterial endotoxins into the bloodstream. The bacterial endotoxins jump on the vascular superhighway throughout the body, and wherever it goes it sets a fire of inflammation. This can be a smoldering low-grade inflammation all the way up to life-threatening sepsis, shock, and multi-organ failure.

Bacterial endotoxins have been linked to a myriad of diseases including autoimmunity, obesity, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, type two diabetes, Alzheimer’s, hepatitis, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and osteoarthritis...

60% of the weight of your stool is actually bacteria! Both good and bad.

When we properly nourish our gut microbiota, we are rewarded with microbes that extract everything that we need from our food, and nothing that we don’t...

Everything that we do as humans involves our microbiota one way or another, even the way we love one another. Every time we kiss, we exchange 80 million microbes with our partner, and vice versa.

Brain health starts in the gut, and that’s because they are in constant communication with each other. Literally right this second, there are over 500 million nerves in your intestines sending feedback to your brain through the vegus nerve. That’s five times more nerves than you’ll find in your spinal cord!

Gut microbes can communicate with our brain using the immune system and through the release of neurotransmitters, hormones, and signaling molecules. Neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine play a powerful role in our mood, energy levels, motivation, and our sense of reward. Your gut produces more than 30 neurotransmitters. Gut microbes both produce and respond to neurohormones like serotonin, dopamine, GABA, and norepinephrine. In fact, 90% of serotonin and 50% of dopamine are produced in the gut.

Short Chain Fatty Acids: All roads point to SCFAs for human health. They are the dominant driver of gut health and offer many benefits throughout the body. Healthy bacteria can’t survive without fiber. Studies have shown that fiber consumption increases the growth of healthy bacteria species.

Fiber is feeding the healthy microbes and they are multiplying. These reinvigorated microbes release SCFA’s from fiber to heal the colon. They make the colon more acidic which prevents the growth of inflammatory and pathogenic bacteria. They directly suppress many dangerous strains. A positive health momentum is created when you regularly expose them to good fiber in your diet; they will adapt to that and get really good at extracting SCFAs for you.

But the flipside is also true: a diet lacking in fiber will drain your gut of its fiber-extracting capabilities and make it less capable of getting postbiotics from your food. 97% of us aren’t even getting the minimal recommendation for fiber!

The main source of energy for our gut lining are SCFAs and fully 10% of our total body daily caloric requirements are met by fiber derived SCFAs!

This blood gut barrier is meant for protection, but holes can occur in the wall allowing bacteria, antigens, and toxic substances like bacterial endotoxins to get past the intestinal wall, activating the immune system. This increased intestinal permeability or leaky gut happens when tight junction proteins that are meant to keep cells connected to one another have been broken, thereby creating gaps between the cells. Good news: SCFA butyrate repairs leaky gut by increasing the expression of tight junction proteins and has been shown to decrease endotoxin release.

I’ve heard people say that your genes load the gun, and your lifestyle pulls the trigger. If that’s the case, then SCFAs disarm the gun and take it out of your hand. SCFAs make immune cells more tolerant to gut bacteria and reduce gut inflammatory markers.

SCFAs reverse dysbiosis, strengthen the gut microbiome, optimize the immune system, and regulate appetite and metabolism... SCFAs also cross the blood brain barrier and continue to work their magic. They connect the gut microbiome to the cerebral function. These effects are powerful. Many people with leaky gut also complain of brain fog. CFA butyrate has demonstrated a profound effect on improving learning and memory. Positive results are demonstrated in models of Alzheimer’s, heavy-metal toxicity, traumatic brain injury, and even neurologic infections. laboratory studies suggest that SCFA’s interfere with the formation amyloid plaque that’s characteristic of a deteriorating brain

Laboratory studies also show that butyrate protects the brain in models of Parkinson’s disease. This is quite interesting when you consider that human studies have found that patients with Parkinson’s disease have lower levels of the bacteria that produce SCFAs and, therefore lower levels of SCFAs in their stool. Parkinson’s disease patients characteristically have digestive issues, with constipation being the most common among them.

Children on a high-fiber diet demonstrate better cognitive control (multitasking, working memory, and maintaining focus) than children who eat a lower-fiber diet. So SCFAs may help ADHD. “I’d far rather kids eat a salad than take Ritalin!”

The above are some of my notes from: Fiber Fueled, Will Bulsiewicz, MD, MSCI ~Dave Johnson

Can the severity of Covid-19 symptoms have a correlation with the gut microbiome?

Can the severity of Covid-19 symptoms have a correlation with the gut microbiome?

Can the severity of Covid-19 symptoms have a correlation with the gut microbiome?

The severity of Covid-19 symptoms in patients infected with the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus can be predicted based on the microbes they carry in their intestines, a new study has shown1. This means that considering the makeup of a person’s microbial community, known as their microbiome, alongside other relevant clinical data such as their past medical history and age, could be a powerful tool for triaging Covid-19 cases.

Dysbiosis is a modern-day problem that emerged when scientists discovered the astounding variety of microbes living on and in the human body. For the most part, these single-celled organisms are harmless (some are even good), and they live in symbiosis with you, the host. But microbes are sensitive little creatures, and their harmonious communities can be easily knocked off balance. This makes it easier for less friendly bugs to take over and do whatever suits them best — which is not always what your body needs. This is the simplified definition of dysbiosis.

Health = positive things minus negative things

The leading causes of death and disease have a strong association with lifestyle choices. The book, Never Be Sick Again states that: There are not thousands of different diseases, All disease is the result of malfunctioning cells. Put simply, if the cells that make up your body are healthy, then you are healthy. Take care of your cells by providing them with all the nutrients they need, keep them free of injurious toxins, and disease will not happen...If your cells are healthy, your body will not become sick. If your cells do not receive what they need or if they are damaged or poisoned, they will stop working right and you will become sick.

May You Never Know What You Are Preventing

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The best way to treat a problem is to never get it in the first place. I believe there are ways to harness and optimize the amazing healing power of your own body. If you are facing something that can have life or death consequences, it makes total sense that you want to have everything possible be in your favor, and you want to definitely seek professional help. Don’t try to fix hard things by yourself!

I have an excellent book titled Beating Cancer with Nutrition. There is an insightful quote from this book: Early research indicated that once cancer has been upregulated, or “the lion is out of the cage”. Then no amount of detoxification is going to matter. Newer evidence says otherwise. Cancer growth can be both slowed and even reversed, under the right conditions. According to the National Cancer Institute, there are 7 million Americans alive today who have lived 5 or more years after their cancer diagnosis. Cancer is reversible. If toxins caused the problem, then detoxification is the solution. Pg. 47

Mad As A Hatter

The Mad Hatter!

Mad As A Hatter!

The Mad Hatter!

Mad as a Hatter was a common expression in the 1800s. Nearly everyone wore hats in those days, and it was found that adding a mercury compound to the process produced superior felt hats. Working in the mercury laden environment produced unfortunate effects for the hat makers. They exhibited many erratic and flamboyant behaviors. The significant neurological damage included tremors, excessive drooling, slurred speech, memory loss and severe paranoia. Thus came the saying: Mad as a Hatter

Today we are assaulted with hundreds of heavy metals and toxins that are creating a serious burden for our bodies; producing unhealthy consequences for us. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, we are exposed to more than 70,000 different toxins EVERY DAY! Heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury, and arsenic, along with a myriad of toxins are in the air we breathe, the food we eat, and practically every personal care or cleaning product we use.

All of these toxins are difficult for our bodies to remove, often they become sequestered or stored in our body fat. The burden of this on our bodies keeps adding up. The implications of all this can be disastrous. Simply type into your browser any bad health condition that you can think of, then add the words ‘heavy metals’ along with it, and you will discover an alarming correlation. If toxicity is a leading contributor to health problems, it would seem that detoxification should be part of the solution or even prevention.

Our Zeolite is a uniquely micronized and activated natural zeolite formula designed to systematically remove heavy metals and other toxins safely and effectively from the body. Our product is formulated using clinoptilolite, a Zeolite that has been proven safe for long term use and is the subject of more than 14 clinical studies. Our product is a natural, organic solution to take out the bad, and replenish the good. It is like taking a shower on the inside of your body.

If your dreams don’t scare you, they are too small! -Richard Branson

Ben Greenfield wrote a book with a great title: Boundless: Upgrade Your Brain, Optimize Your Body & Defy Aging. His most potent tip for increasing your energy vibration and the vibrations of all people around you is to...identify your purpose in life and enable yourself to achieve that unique purpose to the very best of your ability, all while loving God and loving others as fully as possible with that purpose.

Success is all about adding value to other people, and more success is making a bigger difference with more people. God desires that our lives attain their greatest significance. Much of the good in this world is done person-to-person, that’s YOU and me! John Maxwell said, My purpose is to bring joy, compassion, happiness and freedom to people in the world and experience the same for myself while doing it...Success is knowing my purpose in life. Growing to my maximum potential. Sowing seeds that benefit others.

You gotta do something!

If you have read this far...I commend you!!! Strive to live in an environment that constantly nudges you into activity. "If you want to do something big, you’ve got to be part of something you are excited about and you believe in, something worthwhile….Most people don’t give themselves enough time. You’ve gotta work hard, not for a few weeks or a few months, but for a few years. It takes three to five years to establish yourself in business. The first two years of any business are nothing but survival time. Even after you’re doing well, you’ve got to keep working hard if you want to get better and keep your business growing and developing until you make it big." -Art Williams

People with a strong sense of purpose and can articulate it live about 7 years longer than people who don’t! Have you written out a Purpose Statement or Affirmation? Why not go BIG! Let me share mine:

God has gifted me with great possibilities, and I am placed in a wonderful position for making much good happen. I prayerfully strive to be a positive influencer, to always be grateful, thoughtful and patient. I use each moment productively. I am Purposeful, a Visionary, I am Disciplined. I consciously give good nourishment to my spirit, mind and body. I am a major player and a strategic influencer.

...And we love you and are grateful for your efforts and good influence!

You can change your whole life by the way you think, and one of the best ways to do this is by feeding your mind great audio content. I can highly recommend this audio success library: https://johnmaxwellleadershippodcast.com/
