Feeling Grateful

Steve and I have been busy these last few months partying with our friends and sharing the Nerium experience with everybody! We are so excited to have finally found a company that really cares about us and our success and has an incredible breakthrough product that actually works. 

Our team is made up of really fun, happy, goal-driven people and we both feel so blessed and overwhelmed with gratitude for this opportunity! It is so great to be able to see Steve excited and dreaming about our future goals and things we want to do with our children. We had the chance to go to the Nerium Bash in Las Vegas last month and were trained by some of the most top-notch coaches and business men and women. We heard story after story about average people like you and me going from nothing to creating financial independence for themselves through Nerium! 
 Jeff Olson is the CEO of Nerium International and he wrote a book called The Slight Edge. It's all about those simple decisions we make every day that create massive success. This guy knows what he is talking about-- he has turned 5 companies into billion dollar companies. He cares just as much about making people beautiful on the outside with Nerium AD as he does about really building and developing people. One thing he wrote about in his book was something from Napoleon Hill, a great philanthropist who wrote a book called Think and Grow Rich. He talked about the importance of "creating a mastermind group of like-minded people who see things the way you do in order to inoculate yourself from the cuckoos" (the people that are negative and doubt you!) How very true that is. 
 David Byrd is a well known business coach that gave us incredible training on the importance of achievement and planning. 
 We also got to hear Shawn Achor, who wrote a book called The Happiness Advantage and studied positive psychology at Harvard for many years. Something I learned from him is that happiness and optimism really fuel performance and achievement! Being around positive, like-minded people is really such an empowering thing. I am trying to focus on the things that I am grateful for every day and since I have done this, I have felt a massive shift in my life. When you focus on gratitude, you can't help but be happy. I'm not saying I have a perfect life. I definitely have down days or get stressed out with life in general. But Steve and I have tried to really focus on telling and sharing something we are grateful for every day with our boys. I want my kids to grow up to know how important gratitude is. I want them to have positive memories of me as their mother and want to make their childhood as happy as I can. :)
Those are just a few things that I have learned over these past 6 months that I wanted to share.
