After attending the Duncan Family Reunion this weekend I know what we need to do in order to secure my freedom and give my family what they deserve, a full time dad. I won’t lie, these major functions definitely have a motivational component to them and you know what? There isn’t anything wrong with that. What’s the other option? They bring some broke person who’s in debt up to his neck to motivate us? They bring a divorced couple on stage to motivate us to have a great marriage? LOL umm no thanks.
Yeah, there is some motivation, who cares, sometimes people need some motivation and I’m fine with that. To be honest I really really needed this function and needed the pick up as do a lot of people. Life can get in the way and sometimes take you off track from whatever goals you have and its awesome to see how World Wide has strategically placed their functions to get things back on track.
Along with the motivational components, I wrote down 6 pages of notes and tidbits that I’ll take back to my wife and also use myself. As my wife says you never know where your going to get that nugget and this weekend I got a bunch of nuggets to apply directly to our marriage and also our business. It’s not always about your business, sometimes you’ll get tidbits for your marriage, for your family or even for your finances. That’s what’s great about the World Wide Dreambuilders system, they stand on traditional values and hold those above all. For those who are not close to it and only see it superficially, won’t know what I’m talking about.
It was really cool this weekend to see the HUGE Canadian movement that is exploding. New Silvers, New Platinum’s, new Rubies, new Double Eagle Rubies, new Founders Sapphires, new Founders Double Eagle Rubies (Founders Ruby is the hardest pin to reach in Amway by the way, harder than Diamond and that’s our Sponsors!), new Emeralds, and new Founders Emeralds. To say Canada is exploding would be an understatement. This is just one of the reasons why we’ve secured our very own major function in Edmonton next year, Spring Leadership 2012 will be in Edmonton! What’s funny is that people from the US kept asking myself and other leaders in the Canadian organizations what makes us different, why are we growing so fast. The answer is simple, we are ALL-IN and don’t compromise. We pay the price and because of that the prize is the growth and huge successes we are having. It’s nothing hard, just simple success principals. As they say a rising tide raises all ships! New Canadian Diamonds are coming soon!
Anyway it’s been a great weekend and I cannot wait to head home first thing early tomorrow morning to see my wife and son. It was a tough weekend being away from them but they understand the reason for being here and I understand what is needed to move our business forward and we will move forward between now and Free Enterprise Day’s in November.
