I’ve often mentioned how we want to have an impact on people and our business that utilizes the Amway Business Opportunity and World Wide Dreambuilders allows us to accomplish that in so many ways. Last night was just another reminder of the real impact we have on people we are in business with and how those people can actually in turn impact us.
A couple in our business got married yesterday late afternoon at the MaGrath Mansion on Ada Boulevard here in Edmonton which is one of the prime spots for outdoor weddings. Such a beautiful and elegant setting which was a total fit for this couple and highlighted the amazing people they are. This is a couple that has taken a lot of values from World Wide Dreambuilders and incorporated them directly into their lives and it is apparent with how in love they are, how much they smile all the time (I don’t know any other couple that smiles this much), and how solid of a relationship they have. They’ve mentioned many times that the path they were on before getting involved with WWDB was a path that would have taken them an additional 4 to 5 years before getting married. While that may be fine for some people, after seeing great examples of some pretty solid marriages they decided there was no reason to wait that long and well the rest is history.
This couple is great at putting things into practice like paying for a wedding in cash and not going into debt for a wedding. I won’t say how else things are going for them financially but making decisions like this will lead them into a debt free lifestyle very soon. We are very proud of them and others on our team that are doing these same types of decisions. There are a few more weddings coming up in our business and all of them are being paid for in cash. Much different from the norm that you see where people go into HUGE amounts of debt for one day.
I mentioned earlier how this couple impacts us, they impact us by inspiring us to smile each and every single day as they always do. They inspire us to continue to work on our marriage and express love like they do. This is just one of many examples this couple and other couples and singles on our team inspire and impact us. Its those qualities of people that inspire us that we look for when building our team. We don’t just want to impact people ourselves but we want to be impacted and inspired from the people we work with. That’s why we don’t just “sign” people up for the sake of it.
Once dinner was done the speeches started and it was at this point we saw the impact we and other upline have made on this couple. To be invited to their wedding and reception along with family and friends is a great honour and we were very blessed to be part of the day. They wanted us to be there because we are like family to them and have helped them through many tough decisions and directions in life. It was quite apparent the impact we made when not only my wife and me were mentioned in a special shout out but quite a few of their upline as well in front of family and friends. While their family and friends may never really understand the impact, they do and I am so proud to see them married and starting their life off in such a positive way.
Our business while rudimentary is an online webstore however there are so many intangible things that comes with what we do. It’s the system of World Wide Dreambuilders (WWDB) that helps us create life long friends and people who inspire us. I cannot even begin to explain the things I’ve received from this amazing association but I can tell you I thank God every day for our life, where we are and where we are going. I’m glad that He was able to remove my cloud of scepticism after 5 months to allow me to see something I would not have normally seen. Sometimes what we are looking for doesn’t come in the packages we expect. Something I think all of us need to keep in mind when opportunities present themselves.
