What if you hadn’t said yes?

There’s a thought plaguing me a bit today. Here we are at the end of the year and it’s going to be a busy couple of months for our little Herbalife family. Next month there’s the annual Herbalife extravaganza in Johannesburg, and of course that’s a huge deal and a whole bunch of our local team will be making their way there to learn from and be inspired by the best that this company has to offer. In November, my family (mom, dad, brother) will be jetting off to  Lisbon for the President’s Summit where they will learn and be inspired even further.

That’s quite a bit of adventure ahead, isn’t it? I mean, come on: Lisbon! If my thousands of online travel friends are to be believed, Lisbon is one of the most underrated cities in the world. In fact, in the wanderlusters community it is regarded as one of the best cities to visit.

And my family is going there just by the way. No big deal. It’s just par-for-the-course around here these days.

Which leads me to my plaguing thought: What if my dad had said no…

Imagine it! Imagine my dad had left his meeting with Rob Green and never given Herbalife a second thought. Imagine if he had handed the products over to my mom, and not taken her seriously when she told him that they had made her feel quite incredible and that her energy levels were up for the first time in years. Imagine if they had just shrugged it all off and moved on.

Just imagine.

There’d be no fantastic travel tales to share around family braais. There would be no fulfilling days of helping people improve their lives in uncountable ways. There would be no exceptional health benefits. There would be no financial freedom.

So I do imagine sometimes that he had said no. And it makes me ever so grateful that he said yes. Because every day I am reminded that we have a really good life and a whole lot of the credit for that life goes to this incredible company that makes exceptional lives a reality for so many people.

So thank goodness he said yes.

Quick Tip: Always Make a Great Shake

When it comes to talking about shakes, I always make it very clear to folks that they should put a little effort into making their shakes taste good, to ensure that they continue to find their shakes enjoyable. This is incredibly important when making long-term lifestyle changes because if you aren’t enjoying your shake, it is going to be very easy to stop taking it even after you have started experiencing positive results.

I think that something psychologically positive happens when you really enjoy what you are feeding your body. I’m not talking about satisfying that crazy and unexplainable need to devour a KFC family meal all by yourself, I’m talking about that feeling you get when you fuel your body with something positive.

Have you ever eaten something healthy and sort of felt like your body might be sighing with relief? I love that feeling! That feeling motivates me. And because of this feeling, it is so important to make a bit of an effort with your shakes.
