CHOOSE TO HAVE FUN
Fun is a choice. We can choose to make our family life, online business
ventures, and other endeavors a source of either misery or fun! The truly
successful among us will choose to have fun!
FUN CREATES ENJOYMENT
Are your associates and distributors enjoying their lives and business
ventures. If not, they won't stay. Choose to have fun--and share that
fun with your partners.
ENJOYMENT INVITES PARTICIPATION
The number one motivation is creating any successful venture in life is
to experience joy. If they sense that you are a person who knows and experience

PARTICIPATION FOCUSES ATTENTION
Are your ventures run from the top down. If so, you are heading toward

AWARENESS PROMOTES INSIGHT
Examine your golf-swing in the light of new knowledge and instruction
and you will gain the insight needed for change. The same is true with
all the ventures of our lives. For example: a new awareness of my daughter's

INSIGHT FACILITATES ACTION
Knowing how to do something and doing it are two different thing. New

and improvements in your marketing efforts.
ACTION YIELDS RESULT

today what we did yesterday our results tomorrow will remain the same (via samuel james).
Conference, training materials, audio tapes, and terrific new books will
not make a difference in our lives until we act upon what we have learned.
