Have you made New Year's resolutions? Are you resolved to do things better?
I am actually starting this new year with a nasty flu bug!!My health has been improving so much over the last 15 months that getting sick has kinda thrown me off!!
That being so, I have decided to do some very deep and personal work. I have been focused on getting well, but also on “getting better”.
Personal growth is an important part of life that often gets moved to the back burner. Living life and simply getting things done is usually our default mode. So, this sick time has made me slow down and look at a few areas a little closer.
My husband and I enjoy the show Shark Tank (when we actually have time to watch TV!). The other night we saw a very compelling episode that really made me ponder what we are doing and why we are doing what we are doing.
There were 2 young men that have crafted very high quality golf putters. I know very little about golf but their message went way above golfing. They came onto the stage dressed in old fashioned golf attire and began talking about the legacy of golf. They spoke about the skill and craftsmanship that has been lost in the development of golf equipment. Very quickly the investors saw that the putters these young men have created as top of the line, like none they have seen, 1st in class, etc. Compliments flew, then all of a sudden things took a turn.
Sales were not fantastic in the United States but much better in Japan and Scotland and the investors all wanted to know why that was. The young men shared that they had taken their putters to the PGA and everyone was very impressed. They also had gone to Japan and Scotland and those folks weren't just impressed, they bought!! And bought a lot!
The reason for the difference in how these countries received these putters was astounding to me! In the US they were told that they would have to give a putter to every single big name in the PGA and wait for one of them to endorse it. In Japan and Scotland they did not see the need for celebrity endorsement because they could clearly see and appreciate the quality and integrity in these well crafted putters for themselves.
It saddens me to think that in our culture we have lost the ability to see quality and integrity unless someone with celebrity status points it out!
Why have we become people that value the opinions of others more than what we know to be true ourselves?
And why are the people we trust the most celebrities!?
We have walked away from the desire to build something made to last and traded it for something flashy. We have lost the idea of "legacy".
Most of you know that we got involved with Touchstone Essentials a little over a year ago. The reason we did is because we saw for ourselves that this is a company of the highest quality and integrity. We didn't see the need to wait for some celebrity to find out about it and then endorse it for us to be involved.
Touchstone Essentials is a lot like these two young men that have created these putters. Touchstone Essentials is in the business of creating the most comprehensive, high quality, top of the line, best-in class, whole-food health solutions available anywhere!! They are also passionate about impacting the world! Creating and leaving a legacy of health!
In the 15 months that we have been connected with Touchstone Essentials, we have seen people leave for more flashy ideas. Ideas that compromise the integrity they could clearly see with Touchstone Essentials. Ideas that gather hype and celebrity. Ideas that lack the foundational truth about purity and wholeness.
We know that desperation often leads to compromise. Building something to impact the world and creating a legacy takes time. In the supplement world particularly, there is a solid wall of lies that must be torn down before a legacy of purity and truth can be built.
We have decided to lock arms with Eddie Stone and his team at Touchstone Essentials, knowing that it is going to take some time for people to learn and understand what is really going on in the supplement world.
We also understand that finding like-minded people to help do this work and share this vision takes time. We have time...Certainly time for something this important.
What is important to you? If you are reading this and thinking that you would like to be involved with something big, something that has the ability to impact millions for many years to come, something that really does matter, maybe you should consider Touchstone Essentials.
No hype, little flash, lots of truth, and amazing life changing results is what Touchstone Essentials is all about. We focus on training and team building while sharing the truth about supplements with people that want to know. No high pressure stalking tactics, just caring and sharing.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and for considering how you decide to buy something. Do you look for quality then trust yourself when you believe you find it or do you wait for celebrities to sell you? Professional endorsement is fine but should not be the only standard we trust. Through personal growth you can become the person you trust the most!!
Even though right now I am sitting on my bed with a fever, cough, and sore throat I know that 2015 is going to be an amazing year for me! I am committed to personal growth to be healthy, well, and better! Nothing can sway we from this commitment, how about you?
Have a Happy, and Health-Filled New Year!!
Everyone deserves "the Good Inside," and, yes, "Purity is Possible."
