Why the LIFE Business?

LIFE_9878y

 

Why the LIFE Business? What is all this hype about Orrin Woodward and the LIFE business? Well Orrin states “The LIFE Business is a group who are committed to making a difference by first making a difference in their own families life.”

I often get the question, “well what have you made doing this LIFE thing?” My response is always the same….not much. But, it’s not the business, the training system has it laid out exactly what steps to take consistently, over time to achieve a successful business with LIFE, and my goals and dreams are not the same as the next person. Being involved with this team of people and learning the Leadership principles taught so effortlessly in LIFE, I had to be honest with myself and take a long hard look at how I was running my life compared to that of the many leaders we read about in the recommended leadership books. Do I want a big business? yes. Am I in this for the long term or short? long. So I decided if I wanted people to follow me, I need to change into someone worth following.

 

When I got started, my marriage was in shambles, my finances were in shambles, and my attitude could use some improvement. Personally,  I felt that I couldn’t help people fix the problems in their lives until I fixed them in mine, otherwise what qualifies me to walk them through these most difficult adjustments? Do you have to take the route I chose? NOWAY, you can build it as fast as you want….these were MY goals, MY choices, MY priorities. YOURS will be tailored to you, that is the beauty of a networking business, you can go as fast or slow, as low or as high you want, and LIFE has pre-paved the road for you, they’ve cleared the minefield, thousands have gone before you, found what worked and what hasn’t so that you can jump on the highway to success.

A little about what the LIFE materials have done in my life. My husband and I were both working long hours, opposite shifts with 3 children, we were miserable in our marriage We still couldn’t manage to pay our bills or get ahead, and we were headed for divorce. Enter LIFE changing materials. I began by listening to a few CDs, I liked the stories and they seemed to lift my mood, I slowly noticed a change in my outlook, I began to think of the future, something I am ashamed to say, at that time I had all but lost hope for. I was also handed a book, boy was I stubborn I thought I had all the answers and had tried everything in my life to fix my broken marriage……What LIFE teaches you and the world does the opposite is to seek out someone who has the results in life that you want, find out how they got them, learn and do it. Back to the book, this was a book written by a marriage counselor who had been married for like 30 years(don’t quote me) and had help hundreds(or thousands) of couples get their marriages back on track. How many of you out their know if your own marriage counselor has a good relationship with their spouse…maybe you should ask them? The book was The5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman and BAM did it blow me away, I had never heard some of these ideas and when I started to apply them I NOTICED A DIFFERENCE!!! It works, it really does….I’m not saying it’s easy, or that we didn’t have snags in the road to changing our marriage…we had lived and thought one way our entire lives, so of course this would take some time. The point is to always keep your eye on the horizon, always get back up from your failures. I can now honestly say that my marriage is stronger than it’s ever been and I am more secure in my relationship, which helps me to be more me, if you understand that…if not, then I am glad you never had to go through anything like that. We continue to read marriage books and listen to the audio CDs because a marriage is like a car, if you don’t maintain it, or put gas in it…..it’s going to break down. This is a lifestyle change. This is just one story, I have witnessed the same for many other couples and thousands of others have as well…..might just be why Orrin is the #6 leadership guru in the world…(among other reasons :0) )

Next: the dreaded finances….like I said earlier when we started we were both working more than full time, he 50, me 60-72 hours A WEEK! And we still had debt, we still couldn’t pay our bills….I’m sure you’ve felt the strain too. Enter the FINANCES PACK, whoa, let me tell you, it was a slap in the face to here about things like the power of compounding and the dangers when it’s being used against you by banks with “financing”, living within your means, long term vision, etc. But knowledge learned and not applied is useless, and it took until I was backed into a corner to begin applying this principles. Like Orrin says “The pain of staying the same must be greater the pain to change or you will not take the steps necessary for change” , I had reached that point and god willing we will be 100% debt free this year, maybe even before the end of the year. The feeling of seeing that light at the end of the tunnel is priceless.

Back to the business side, I have not been building this as a business, because I made a decision to live my priorities, and at that time, I was not. when asked the questions “what are your priorities in life?” I said GOD, my husband, my children, everything else……..but then the stinger question….”How much time will you spend on those priorities today?” OUCH right? because I said that these were my priorities but most of my time was spent working. Today, I am still a work in progress but with the skills taught in our materials, I am a stay at home mom, homeschooling two out of 3, going to be adding the 3rd this summer. We made the hard choices and cut our spending and expenses and my husband and I committed to each other so that he could put more effort into moving ahead in his company, which he has, I’ll get to that in a minute. The result? we have cut at least $20,000, yes $20,000! a year from our budget to allow me to stay home.

The husband, hasn’t really gotten on board with the business, this happens sometimes and I don’t see it being forever, as my team grows, so will his belief in it and he’ll jump on board…but he did listen  and read the materials and has had a dramatic improvement in his own leadership abilities and people skills (yes they are skills that can be learned, you don’t have to been born with a magnetic personality, you can change) which has lead to not 1 but 2 promotions in the last six months!!! The second he surpassed many that had been ahead of him because he outshined them and made himself an asset to that company. LUCK is a for letter word and its spelled like this : WORK.

Did these changes take some time? Yes. Was it hard? YES

Was it worth it?

YES!!!!

I would do it over again in a heartbeat, it’s dream, struggle, victory…………the victory just isn’t as sweet without the struggle. I am now in a position to begin building my own team and helping others achieve their dreams and goals as well, remembering that everyone is different and your dreams are not the same as mine, but I can help lead you to the information that can empower you to make the changes necessary in your life in order to achieve your goals and dreams. I didn’t have anyone else (outside of LIFE) offering to guide me and be my cheerleader during that difficult transition. So what are you waiting for? We have the best compensation plan, the best leaders #6 and #11 leadership gurus in the world Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady. We are the #1 community builder IN. THE. WORLD.

What are you waiting for? The opportunity of a lifetime only comes once. What is the worst that can happen? You’ll have improved thinking, relationships, people skill, leadership skills, business skill, parenting skills. Lets join arm and arm and change our culture in the 8Fs of LIFE: Faith, Family, Finances, Fitness, Friends, Fun, Freedom and build a Following. Leave a Legacy, you have greatness in you, it’s just waiting to be unlocked.

So lets Have Fun, Make Money and Make a difference, one family at a time.

God Bless,

What If?

Some Food for thought

Why do we Americans relinquishSAFFFRON_CLOVES_09878Y_VARIOUS control of our bodies and minds to governing agencies such as the FDA, AMA, DOE, ETC, Etc?

I have struggled with my health for quite a long time, longer than necessary I suppose because for some reason I had this inherent trust that my doctor and my government knew what was best for me and would always guide me in the direction of health and vitality. WRONG!!! The more I research the more I am convinced that we CAN cure ourselves of all health ailments, including cancer. That there are MULTIPLE cures being suppressed RIGHT NOW, under our own noses. Almost as if all the money that has been donated “for the cure”, found the “cures” only to have “the cure” made either illegal or publicly demonized by our mainstream media. I am on a mission to CURE myself. I’ve learned about the problems with our environment, big pharma, med, monsanto, etc. and I am using that information to help avoid additional exposure to harmful substances we are being bombarded with. Now, I will be incorporating a nutrition and supplemental approach to my health care. I will start blogging about my experiences soon, so that if there is someone out there, who, like me has suffered in silence for years, might find it helpful. I digress….why would we ever think that a doctor we see once a year, have no personal relationship with(we don’t usually know their beliefs or personal life) would know our bodies better than we do? Why would we not take our power back and start educating ourselves in repairing our health, naturally without the dangers of conventional medicine? I know part of the reason is that we feel it’s helpless, that maybe it’s all in our head because our blood tests came back “normal”, I must be imagining these symptoms. I am here to tell you that is WRONG! Your body is incredible and those symptoms are signals telling you that something isn’t right in your body. I am thoroughly convinced that the “cure” are all centered around bringing the body back to homeostasis via adequate nutrition. The western diet is leaving most of us severly malnourished which creates a prime environment for a host of medical problems, from the common cold to cancers and autoimmune problems. The problem is, it is going to have to be you that branches out and takes control of your life from everyone but you and God. I look forward to sharing some life changing information with you soon.

God Bless,

Tiffany

Chew on it!

Dealing with these health issues and trying to heal my body gently and naturally is convincing me more and more that these mega corporations are using the human race as a gigantic science experiment, the goal being depopulation. Every-time a cure for cancer is uncovered, our government quickly makes the cure “illegal”, like organic apricot seeds, I mean seriously, WTF are people thinking when they support this type of legislation. What creative story did that politicians lobbyists come up with that would garner enough public support to even get this stuff to pass? I mean I saw the propaganda they did for cannabis, but that’s because cannabis is essentially a cure-all and would put them all out of business and they would lose their Agenda 21 goal. But to make individual fruits and veggies, or parts of them illegal? COME ON! Those are my thoughts for the hour 🙂 Chew on it

A Versatile Spice: THE CLOVE

Clove

The versatile Clove has been a prized spice for centuries. Native to the Malucca Islands, the clove, one of the most precious spices of the 16th and 17th centuries, has been found to be traded for centuries, even spurring expeditions and wars. By the 18th century, everyone was growing it and the Dutch were losing thier monopoly in the trade.

The clove can be used to treat numerous ailments, I will cover a few here and add video tutorials at a later date.

The clove is an antiseptic, analgesic, antiviral,local anesthetic, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-parasitic, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory. Among other treatments, it has been used to treat nausea, toothache, cavities, abscess tooth, mouth sores, headache, sore throat, dandruff, cuts, scrapes, sore muscles, strains, acne, styes, ease coughs, wounds, athletes foot, scabies, fungal infections, induce sleep, aphrodisiac. This list is not all-inclusive.

As I’m sure you know, most medications find their origin in the plant families, you see corporations are  unable to patent nature, and a patent ensures maximum profit, regardless if there is a safer alternative (like the actual plant). So drug companies find and focus on one or a couple of substances, zero in on those, synthesize and mass produce their medications, many times without even understanding how the mechanism of action works and disregarding the many other synergistic properties of the plant.

One of these substances is EUGENOL, which you will find in many commercially produced toothache/mouth sore applications. Defined as:

eu·ge·nol : aromatic liquid made from clove oil, used as a dental analgesic.

What these big companies succeed in doing is hiding the natural and safe benefits of nature. Making, you, the consumer completely dependent on their “professional medical advice”. I am here to help you become empowered in your own health care and wean yourself off of the “sick care” industry. Here are some basic applications, ones I use regularly in my own home.

Immune boosting tea : some whole cloves, star anise and cinnamon stick , simmer for about 15 minutes, add some raw honey and enjoy

as an antiseptic instead of neosporin: mix some organic coconut oil with organic ground cloves and place of cuts and scrapes, this works great for pain relief too.

for toothache, cavities or abscess I used ground cloves instead of penicillin.

As a compress: simmer chamomile, whole cloves on stove for 15 minutes, let cool. Place a washcloth and use on sprains and strains.

Feel free to comment with any questions, this list is by no means all inclusive.
