When getting started with LIFE we never dreamed where the journey would take us, with dream being the operative word. We thought the “American Dream” consisted of work, work, work and then work some more to finance the lifestyle that we thought was important. We never took the time to evaluate what our true goals and dreams were or to educate ourselves on how to pursue any true dreams that may be in our hearts. Team and now LIFE have changed our thinking on the “American Dream” drastically. We, as a family, have learned many life lessons over the last eight years by applying the principles that we have learned through the educational system. It really has been an eye opener. While all of the 8 “F”s of LIFE are crucial in leading a healthy productive life, one “F” that we have made a conscious effort to improve has definitely been the Finance “F”. It has been books such as “The Business of the 21st Century” by Robert Kiyosaki, “The Magic of Thinking Big” by David J. Schwartz, “Read and Grow Rich” by Burke Hedges and “God’s Plan for Your Finances” that stand out as influential in changing our path to real success as well as CD’s like those found in the Finance Pack. Not so long ago delaying gratification, goal setting, and dream building were foreign concepts in our family. We feel so blessed that we are part of a company that encourages personal growth, change and challenges our thinking to not accept the “norm” and settle for “good” but to reach for the “great”!! Our definition of LIFE is the ability to run for your dreams with everything you have, to get back up when you have been knocked down, to learn from those that have the fruit on the tree, to always be humble and gracious and to give thanks to God for the obstacles and victories in LIFE.
