Spring Break- WOOHOO. Observe the masses…

This has been an incredibly busy week for me.  No, not busy.  I like the word productive more.  It is easy to be busy, but another thing entirely to be productive.  Success in any endeavor requires productivity, not simply busy, scattered activity.  This past week was the week many people my age are going to the warmest places of the country and living it up, as far as they can imagine, for one week.  The typical 23-year old looks forward to this time of year as a time to live in a state of  utter debauchery for a short 5 or 6 days.  And then it’s back to the ole grind.  This cycle of behavior to me seems to be a prime example of being busy.  They are busy for a few months and then they take a break with a mindset of “Hey, I’ve earned it” or “Hey, I deserve this break, ya know.”  A very successful person who was a mentor to me in life matters as well as finance once told me this and I believe that it rings true now until the end of human existence:  ”If you wish to be successful in any facet of life, OBSERVE THE MASSES AND DO THE OPPOSITE.”  This is such a profound statement to me.  While most people spend their entire year being “busy” with activities that are hardly moving them towards any goal whatsoever and then taking one week out of the year to set themselves back even further, there are a select few individuals who are being productive.  There are a few people that set themselves apart and become great.  They will not settle for mediocre.  They will not be average.   For the time being, I’d like to call these individuals The Fellowship of the 2%. Another mentor of mine once told me “focus, don’t spray.”  It is very important to discover how it is that you want to be remembered, how you wish to impact humanity, what is your legacy; not typical things that busy people think about like what is your job going to be, how long will you go to school to be qualified and when can you retire.  Focus on what is important and don’t vary.

I have not mastered the art of being productive ALL of the time just yet, but I am working on it.  I am not sure the Fellowship of the 2%would induct me into their society just yet.  I want to live NOW, like most people are not willing to live, so that I can live ONE DAY like most people will not have the means to live.  Most people my age did not have vision this past week.  Their sight was blocked by a few days of fun in the sun.  While they were living it up for a very short period of time, I chose to stay home and kick it in to overdrive.  With consistent work that has been compounding over the past 2 months, I spent last week working on opening 3 new markets in 3 different areas of the country.  I have already opened two- Indianapolis, IN and Baltimore, MD and am still working on 1 more- Boston, MA.  Yes I could have scrounged up a little money and went to a typical Spring Break destination that would be overcrowded and saturated with drunken inconsiderations.  Yes I could have lived it up for a short 5 or 6 days.  But instead, I had vision.  Instead, would rather sacrifice the here and now, for a greater quality of life soon to come.  I realize that every decision that I make now will directly affect the quality of life that me and my family experience later and that is not something I take lightly.  I refuse to tell my friends and family in the future that “Sorry guys, we have to live a life of mediocrity because I was selfish and had no vision.”  No, I may not be a part of the Fellowship just yet, but soon.  Until then I will press toward the mark, I will stay the course, I will fight for my prize:  a life that is LIVED.  Will you?


Pat Luttrell’s take on Zija…what is yours?

WOW…that is all I can say about this incredible testimony to the benefits of consuming Zija consistently.  Most of us have spent our entire lives eating foods that are over-processed and have virtually no nutritional value.  I’m not saying it’s completely our own fault.  If we even knew what foods we were supposed to eat, we still couldn’t get the nutrition that our bodies and minds demand because it just isn’t there.  Zija offers vital nutrients, some of which aren’t even evident in our food chain anymore.  Who do you know that could benefit?  Your friend? Your family member? Your neighbor?  YOU?  Bottom line- if you give your body and mind what it requires to function properly…it will.  If your body and mind don’t get the essentials, THEY WON”T FUNCTION PROPERLY.  And we will continue to see new ailments and new diseases spring up.  Surprised?  You shouldn’t be.  Lets promote healthy living instead of doctoring symptoms.  Where do we start?  Zija.

Hi, I am a 55 year old mother and grandmother. Growing up I enjoyed good health. At age 25 my world began to tilt and eventually spun beyond my control. Suddenly, I was changing; moodiness, insomnia, hormone changes, muscle weakness, tearable headache and body aches, and a weight gain of 20 pound in one month. Eventually, I gained over 100 pounds. During this time I was going to the doctor and speacilist to find answers. Finally, after seven years the answer was; cushing’s disease. All these problems were created by a small tumor in the pituatary area of the brain. I had surgery, was cured and life began to return to normal. Then 18 months later health problem’s began again seven years later I was diagnosed with cushing’s again. During the second surgery the doctors were unable to locate the tiny, but mighty tumor. They decided to remove the pituatary. Lab results showed I still had cushing’s. So the doctors decided on aggressive treatment. I recieved One large dose of radiation instead of 30 daily treatments.After the second bout of cushing’s I was still overweight and had insomnia, plus now I had fibromyalgia. As a result, I have been physically running on empty for 30 years. Each day I have had to push myself to go to work and take care of my family. As the years past it became more difficult. I began to feel that my body was just a hull, a shell, with virtually no energy. I rarely had a full night’s sleep. I spent many nights in the recliner waiting for morning,when I began the day more exhausted than the day before. The last few years I have done the basic household chores and hoped no one asked for more I had gradually stopped going out socially with my husband. I just wanted to be home. My recliner was my nest. My goal each day was to settle in my nest and hope not to have to move. I love and enjoy my family and thankfully they have been loving and understanding. One day at work, I overheard Mrs. Lydia Coffey speaking of something she was taking. She was saying that she felt so good and it had had such a positive impact on her health. I was drawn to her. I needed to know what magic she had found. She shared her story and I began Zija. Excitedly, I waited to feel its impact. One week went by nothing. Then more days and weeks followed, I didn’t feel better. Lydia continued to encourage me. I didn’t understand what could be wrong. Then two months after beginning Zija, I woke up and I felt so good! As days pass, my body felt stronger, I had energy, my sleep greatly improved. I was standing taller, straighter, and walking with a purpose. Hallelujah, no pain from fibromyalgia! Years ago the doctor’s said my thyroid would eventually die and I was already having troubles but recently at my annual check up I had normal readings. I believe it took two months to feel the affects of Zija because my body had had so much wear and tear that I needed a “big” repair job. I feel the best I have felt in 30 years. From the beginning of Cushing’s Disease I have kept a sense of internal stress all the time. Now, I feel peaceful. My goals and the activities I enjoyed 30 years ago have returned. It is as if I have found myself again. For so long I felt like a slug, just dragging my body. Now, I feel such sense of freedom. Each day, I am in aw of how good I feel. Don’t be discouraged if you dont feel results quickly, be patient and keep following the plan. Always, I wanted to live to be with my family and friends but, I never expected to feel this sense of joy in life again. I believe there can be a “Miracle” waiting for you, too!”

Zija’s GenM incredible healing qualities.

Anyone who is paying hundreds and maybe even thousands of dollars a year on their Lancome or Loreal products, ask yourself if the ingredients in them can produce results anywhere close to this.  Consider the value of what you buy and make informed decisions!  The skin is the largest human organ and is highly unappreciated.  Show your skin some love…get GenM!  Tiffany Spratt is a believer!!

Zija oil. . . kept me from having plastic surgery!

I was bitten by a black widow spider on my cheek Oct. 21st, 2009. Anyone familiar with black widow bites knows the venom eats a whole through the skin. This is what was taking place in my cheek and the whole was boaring through to the inside of my mouth. I was advised by the Emergency Room Doctor I would have to have plastic surgery.

Luckily, my husband and I were able to go to the National Convention where they launched the skin care line. I immediately went back to my room and followed the entire regimen. All the products are absolutely amazing and provide a feeling to my skin I have never felt before. My favorite product by far is the Zija Oil! I started using the Zija Oil 8 to 12 times a day on my black widow spider bite and in three weeks my wound had completely closed. I have a “slight” demarcation on my cheek now, but it is not visible with make-up.

My two children and I also have eczema pretty severely and with the use of Zija Oil our skin is clear and free of eczema!

I am a licensed cosmetologist and have used many professional skin care products. The GenM line is far superior to any products of professional grade; because of the Moringa infusion in each individual product provides nutrition for your skin.

You owe it to yourself to protect your skin from the everyday pollutants in the air. Invest in yourself and your skin…invest in the GenM kit!

Tuesday info

I have an incredible opportunity for everyone to take advantage of tomorrow night, Tuesday, February 2, at 6:30. Mr. Jonathan McNabb, the managing physical therapist for all of the Total Fitness Connections will be making himself available for quick, casual sitdowns at 440 Main Restaurant in downtown Bowling Green. His topic of discussion will be Zija International. Some of you will want to discuss the numerous health benefits that may come from consuming Zija products including, but not limited to: weight loss, healthy sustained energy, lower cholesterol, anti-inflammation, lower blood pressure, etc. Others may wish to discuss income oportunities that are available with Zija’s compensation plan.

Mr. McNabb is proficient in both areas. He is a medical professional who has experienced incredible health results with the products himself as well as monitoring the improved health of people he has recommended Zija to. He has also established himself as a dynamic leader in the industry of marketing the Zija products and taking full advantage of the generous compensation plan.

Whether you are looking for improved health or improved wealth this year, it will be a good idea to be at 440 Main tomorrow at 6:30 pm to talk briefly with Mr. McNabb. This opportunity may or may not be for you, but it is definitely worth a look if you are looking to improve. Make an educated decision. Look at the facts. Google “moringa oleifera” and then contact me to schedule a quick casual sitdown with Jonathan McNabb to talk about how to fit Zija into your lifestyle and how to benefit from it.

Winter wonderland

Hello again everyone. Thank you for the kind comments on my first post. I really enjoy reading what everyone has to say. Keep it up!

Tonight we are having on of the biggest snow falls that Bowling Green has seen in a long time. The main strip is literally covered in about 3 inches of snow. I can appreciate snow, but would rather live somewhere where it is warm year-round and choose to come to the snow. It is beautiful, but very dangerous. Be careful!

Tomorrow I have a presentation to do on Zija. Thought about cancelling, but decided to keep it open for the select few who might decide to fight the weather. Wish me luck in high attendance!

Enjoy the snow Bowling Green!

Until next post….

Hello everyone!

Hello everyone! If you don’t know me already, my name is Brandon Hayes. Since this is my very first post on WordPress, I’d like to tell a little about myself. I am a 23 year old man with huge goals and ambitions in life. Anyone who knows me knows that I have big dreams. I have beautiful girlfriend named Sarah Belle Simpson. What an awesome name for a girl, right? Sarah is Hebrew for “princess” and Belle is French for “beauty.”. Princess Beauty Simpson. Currently, I am attending classes at Western Kentucky University to finish up my undergraduate studies in Philosophy. Don’t you ever just wonder “why” or “how” about a topic? I plan on going on to get my PhD in Philosophy as well since I would love to do some writing deserving of publish one day. I also am the general manager for a restaurant downtown called 440 Main. I run a few small businesses from home. I am experienced in direct sales, networking, relationship marketing and management at every level. I am a hard worker, but more importantly a smart worker and I beleive that one of the most important things in this life is to leave a lasting legacy. I want 1000’s of people to remember not just my name, but that I impacted their lives in a positive way, whether directly or indirectly. Right now I am very passionate about my own personal development as well as that of my close friends and family. It is often difficult to add value to someone else if you don’t possess said value. I love meeting new people and finding out how I can add value to their lives. I will do whatever it takes to become financially independent. I know most of us were told to “go to school, get good grades, stay out of trouble and you’ll make it in this world.”. I am afraid that most people have discovered that to be a falsehood. The system every one is following isnt working. In fact, only 4 out of every 100 people following that system will be able to financially sustain themselves past age 65. I will do everything within the realm of things ethical and legal to make sure that I do not live a life of mediocrity. Being a philosopher, I am very analytical and ponder the deeper things. I typically enjoy hearing opinions, but like to base my decisions, values and worldviews on facts- as much as is possible. “So you have an interesting opinion on the matter…but what do you think about the facts” is an oft heard sentence from me. I like to ask why. Subsequently, politics, economics and religion, contrary to many people, are among my favorite conversation pieces. I am a Christian. I was raised in the Southern Baptist church, my father being a minister. After having broke free from the idea that it is good to listen to a man behind a pulpit telling you what to believe and how to interpret scripture, I started doing some of my own research around age 18. Now I subscribe to the doctrines of the reformed Christianity which is commonly known to follow the teachings of John Calvin. As far as politics go, I did not vote for Barack Obama. I will not slander him. I will say that I believe that the only candidate for presidency that the U.S. has seen in a long time that understands our country, our constitution and how to employ the strengths of a democratic republic is Ron Paul. I have grown up in a Republican home, but now consider myself a “constitutionalist” since neither sides of the aisle seem to uphold it. My father, as I mentioned earlier was a minister. He was much more than that though. He was a business owner, a teacher, a thinker- not just a talker, a “practicer”- not just a preacher, a leader, an innovator, a friend, and one of my heroes. He instilled in me most of the values and qualities that I thrive with today. Though he passed away, I still remember, as if it were yesterday, one of our late-night talks when he said to me: “Son, you are going to be a leader. People will heed what you say and do. And you will lead well.”. and you know what? Because of his words and his example, I will! That’s all for tonight. I know it’s a lot, but future posts will be exponentially shorter and less intense…I promise. Subscribe to this blog and follow me in my journey to become who I will be. Tell your friends. Until then.

Mr. Brandon Hayes
