We don't ever really know where someone's beginning began.
We can't say for certain what was the start of someone's end.
We might think a person has burst through the ribbon at the end of their successful race or by observation guess that they have given up and won't make it to the finish.
But in truth, we can't see the details of their past, the coming of their future, the place where their gun signaled and they took off, or the exact location of their designated finish l
I get it...you have bills to pay, children to feed, vacations to take and more! Money might not buy happiness, but it sure buys a lot of things we need to live and things we want and things we think we can only dream about that might make us happy! But here's the problem. When we focus on the money, and spend so much time and energy just trying to keep our head above water earning it, we lose all the joy in our journey.

Did you ever hear the story of Punchinello & his boxes and balls, by Max Lucado? Punchinello is a wooden person, created by the Maker, Eli.

I'm likely to avoid accepting the challenge in the first place. And the more overwhelming a task appears? Or the more I doubt my ability to do it very well?

"What? How could that be!" you exclaim. "I'm the one at the top! I built this team from nothing! I enrolled them all! I trained them! If it wer
How many times have you read a book, listened to a training or overheard a conversation that included something along the lines of: "Gotta look out for #1, no one else is going to!"
This "me first" attitude is, sadly, quite prevalent in the direct sales world. I have heard countless times from consultants, in various companies, who had been hurt by another representative trampling over them on their way to trying to reach the top first! If they only knew that there is a mu
