In the 32-year history of VitaMist March has always been founder’s month!   It’s hard to believe that he passed away 9 years ago last month, but the legacy he left behind will go on forever.

For those of you who had the privilege of knowing our founder, you will understand when I say he was one of those individuals who seemed to be bigger than life. This poem of Mother Teresa’s, that I believe I have shared with you before, rather sums up the way he felt and lived his life.

“Words To Live By’

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;

Forgive them anyway.

If your are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;

Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;

Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;

Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;

Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;

Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may just never be enough;

Give the world the best that you have anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it’s all between you and God;

It was never between you and them anyway.

-Mother Teresa

 

One of Joe’s favorite quotes was one of Mark Twain’s: “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

 

Let VitaMist help you reach your dreams and realize your ambitions.

 

From My Heart With LOV – Sari

You might have to Burn your Boats!

Written By: Graphics Department - Mar• 05•15

If you are being pushed around by fear, anxiety, self-doubt and worry, then it’s time to “burn your boat” and become fully committed to your VitaMist career!

I believe that the great NFL Hall of Fame coach, Vince Lombardi, had it right when he said, “The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.” Do you agree with Coach Lombardi, or are you the type of person who has difficulty staying focused and keeping commitments? Do you allow the negative influences of fear, anxiety, self-doubt and worry to dominate your thinking and sabotage your results?

 

Sadly, most people fail to achieve their goals, not because they’re lazy or lack self-motivation, but because they were never “fully committed” to succeed! I can’t think of a single great achievement that has ever been attained without a plan of action and an unshakable commitment to its accomplishment. Walt Disney was arguably one of the most creative dreamers and determined men of the twentieth century. Walt understood the power of commitment, and he would frequently tell those around him, “When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionably.”

 

The ancient Greek warriors were both feared and respected by their enemies. In battle, the Greeks established a well-deserved reputation for their unsurpassed bravery and unshakable commitment to victory. The key to their overwhelming success on the battlefield had far more to do with how the Greek commanders motivated the warriors than it did with issues of tactics or training. The Greeks were master motivators who understood how to use a “dramatic demonstration” to infuse a spirit of commitment into the heart of every warrior. Once the warriors had been offloaded from their boats onto their enemy’s shore, the Greek commanders would shout out their first order, “burn the boats!” The sight of burning boats removed any notion of retreat from their hearts, and any thoughts of surrender from their heads. Imagine the tremendous psychological impact on the soldiers as they watched their boats being set to the torch. As the boats turned to ash and slipped quietly out of sight into the water, each man understood there was no turning back and the only way home was through victory.

 

In your VitaMist career, your battles are not fought with weapons on foreign shores, but within the confines of your own mind. A truly committed salesperson does not have the luxury or the time for the self-indulgence of negative thinking. The true underlying motivation for all success is a deep and unwavering commitment to the task at hand. The sales profession is a demanding and challenging career, but it is also personally rewarding and financially lucrative for those who are fully committed to becoming successful. If you are being pushed around mentally by thoughts of fear, anxiety, self-doubt and worry, then it’s time to “burn your boat,” and become fully committed to your VitaMist career!

 

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back,

always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation,

there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless

ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits

oneself, and then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to

help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream

of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner

of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no

man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you

can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and

magic in it. Begin it now.

– Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

What Your Food Cravings Really Mean

Written By: Graphics Department - Mar• 05•15

A food craving is an intense desire to consume a specific food, stronger than normal hunger. Understanding what your body is really asking for when you can’t seem to stay away from that chocolate will help you make choices that keep you on a healthy track, while giving your body what it needs.

Sweets: Your body is missing chromium, carbon, phosphorus, sulfur and tryptophan. To replenish these missing nutrients, you should eat fresh fruit, broccoli, cheese and kale.

Fatty Snacks: Find yourself hankering for some chips or Cheetos? While the salty goodness of a Lay’s potato chip is hard to resist, you should put down the chips and pick up some leafy kale or mustard greens to get rid of the craving.

Coffee/Tea: Most people can’t start their day without a cup of coffee. They might believe it’s natural to crave coffee every day to jolt them awake. Your body doesn’t naturally crave coffee; it’s actually craving phosphorus, sulfur, iron and salt. Instead, you should include some egg yolks, garlic or onions in your morning routine.

Carbonated Drinks: Whether you prefer Pepsi or Coke, many people believe carbonated drinks complete a meal. If your body is craving something fizzy, it’s trying to tell you that it’s low in calcium. By simply eating some broccoli or cheese, the need for carbonation will drift away.

Chocolate: Personally, chocolate is something I crave the majority of the time. What does that mean for me? Well, my body needs more magnesium. How do I get it? Simple: I can just put down the Godiva, and pick up some raw nuts and seeds.

Product of the Month

Do you get motion sickness? Let VitaMotion help take some of the edge off.

Ginger:

Ginger is derived from the tuberous rhizome (underground root) of the perennial plant Zingiber officinale. Ginger has been used as a spice, condiment, flavoring agent, and for nearly 2,500 years, ginger has also played an important role in Asian medicine to promote cleansing of the body through perspiration, to calm nausea, and to stimulate the appetite.

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine):

Vitamin B-6, or pyridoxine, assists the body in carrying out a number of important functions. B-6 helps the immune system produce antibodies that are needed to fend off disease. It may also relieve nausea in some cases, according to Medline Plus, a website published by the National Institutes of Health.

Talk to your health-care provider before taking dietary supplements for medical reasons.

February has always been referred to as the month of LOVE.  For me, though, it means more than that.  It’s the month in which I was born (more years ago than I want to talk about).  It’s the month my husband past away.  It’s the month 9 years ago that my whole world changed.  Therefore it is the month of LOV, but most of all it’s a month of change.

Change, excuses and security, three words that seem to go hand in hand.  So many of us are scared of change, we make excuses, and we long for security.  We are all guilty of habits that prevent us from reaching our goals, prevent us from being “all we can be” and stop us from stepping outside of our comfort zone.

But without change, there would be no seasons.  We could be immersed in an endless winter.  We must embrace change, we must advance and we must move forward.  After all, isn’t change one of the basic values upon which VitaMist was built?  We do not accept the status quo; we do not accept that pills are the only way to take your vitamins.

This message of change is heard more and more on every conference and focus call.  VitaMist is evolving even more so into the Company of change and innovation.  We do things a little differently, and we are proud of that.  We are not scared of change.

“Excuses” and “security” often come with “change”.  We’ve all heard the phrases, “stop making excuses,” and “step outside of your comfort zone!”  I know it’s not always easy, but take my word for it. I did it 9 years ago, and now is your time.  Wear your lanyard proudly, talk to people about VitaMist, and invite people onto the calls.

To quote Benjamin Franklin, the American Statesman and Inventor-

    “When you’re finished changing you’re finished”

 

For this Very special LOV month, I wish for you from my heart:

    -Happiness – Deep down within.

    -Serenity – With each sunrise

    -Close and caring friends.

    -Love – That never ends.

    -A bright today – With much to be thankful for.

    -A path – That leads to beautiful Tomorrows.

    -Dreams – That do their best to come true.

    -And appreciation.- of all the wonderful things about you.

(Blue Mountain Arts)

 

LOV
