Another amazing article by LIFE Co-Founder Chris Brady on the impact the LIFE business will have in today’s economy.
We live in an age where people want guarantees and security. They want to be taken care of and handed something for nothing. And let’s face it, in dicey economic times, who wouldn’t yearn for a little bit of good old stability?
But success doesn’t come through comfort, nor security through others. Personal development and massive effort over time is the formula of achievement. It has rightly been said that our only security is our own ability to perform.
Enter the LIFE business. The materials and truths provided by the founders of LIFE (Orrin Woodward, Tim Marks, Bill Lewis, George Guzzardo, Claude Hamilton, Dan Hawkins, Rob Hallstrand, and yours truly) go right to the heart of the matter; equipping customers with the foundational truths of success, and offering a chance at business ownership through which a level playing field is provided for anyone willing to earn his or her success.
It begins with thinking. It never ceases to amaze me how confident people are in their own thinking. They seem to assign all their difficulties and woes to outside forces, allowing them the illusion that their own thinking wasn’t responsible for any of it. This is extremely convenient, because it therefore demands no introspection, personal growth or self-improvement on their part. Instead, outside circumstances, the government, the system, the economy, or any other number of scapegoats can be blamed. In this way, the poor victim is safe in his delusional cocoon from the strenuous efforts of self-improvement and change. But even Einstein weighed in on this topic, famously stating, “We can’t solve problems by using the same level of thinking we used when we created them.” And there it is from one of the smartest guys ever: we created them. Did you catch that?
It is critical to give ourselves the blame for our problems because that is the only way we can expect to be part of the solution. And here again this is a difficult conclusion to draw, because it puts the responsibility directly upon us for the change necessary for betterment. It is not up to any outside forces, government programs, corporations, rich relatives, or anywhere else the hallucination of an easy fix may be spotted. It is up to us.
Be careful. I am not saying people are not in need of a helping hand from time to time. I am not suggesting that ALL problems in our lives are of our own creation. Rather, I am talking through the thinking process necessary to produce long term, lasting success in our lives. As long as we allow outside forces and others to take the blame for our circumstances, we immediately eliminate the only person capable of truly giving us the achievement and security we crave – namely, ourselves. The successful people I know take personal responsibility for their results, and work on their thinking and thereby their performance to change their reality until it matches their dreams or vision for how things could and should be.
This is radically different from how most people operate, unfortunately. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Anyone can be taught the principles of success and how to take personal responsibility for their lives. This is what the LIFE business is all about – it not only provides the information and answers to successful thinking, but a compensation plan that can provide immediate economic progress to those properly applying the principles taught. For some, simply becoming a customer of these materials will be enough to impart success thinking, which can then be applied to any endeavor. For others, however, both the information and the opportunity will be desired. Either way, LIFE is there to deliver the goods.
Welcome to the LIFE you’ve always wanted – it’s directly on the other side of proper success thinking.
