I want to share some personal stories from some friends in our LIFE business that we feel will provide inspiration and motivation for us all. Nate Kuhl and Penny Tahtinen are two of many examples of individuals that have started a new life journey through self-directed learning and plugged into a great association of people who have decided to get control of their lives through the LIFE business.
Penny Tahtinen – Personal Fitness and Mental Fitness Challenges through Finances and Faith
Penny and her husband Michael have four children and plugged into the LIFE training materials and the TEAM system for building compensated communities back in the fall of 2011. Within a relatively short period of time, Penny has achieved some phenomenal results in several of the 8F’s, a few of which I want to share with you in Penny’s words:
Thanks for the encouragement along the way! If it wasn’t for the both of you I would still have my door closed to the world. I feel alive again! With Christ centered in my life and working daily at becoming a better wife and mother, I now have the strength and courage to be the example for my family.
“This is the last thing I’m going to do, I’m going to make it! All because someone believed in me.” -Bill Lewis
Thank You! Penny
Nate Kuhl – Fitness, Faith and Friends
Nate Kuhl is an incredible example of a young man on a life mission. I met him through his fiancé, Ashley, while building compensated communities in TEAM and LIFE. Nate, like Penny, has achieved very significant results in the 8F’s which are nothing less than inspiring. Please read from Nate’s own words:
I have never been a very physically fit person. Fitness is not an important choice for many people in my family and that thought process passed to me as well. I found myself a magnet for ridicule and names growing up but learned to cope with humor and casual association, often preferring a loner lifestyle of entertainment and video games. But I was never really happy with myself or my Fitness situation. I had worked hard one spring in high school and achieved some weight loss results but they did not last and I knew I had failed again. I decided again last January that I would lose weight and try to get healthy. Fortunately in March last year my life changed. I attended a [TEAM] seminar with my then girlfriend, now fiance, and my life hit a turning point. It was through the Team that I learned people of character say things, commit, and accomplish their stated goals. With commitment, discipline, much encouragement, MonaVie, and hard work, I took my efforts to a whole new level. I ran two to three miles four or five days a week. I cracked down hard on what I would eat. By changing my thinking from pain or anguish to vision and excitement, I persevered. Over 9 months I lost 65 pounds and a lot of money on new clothes. =) Now, through continued discipline and commitment, I continue to stay in shape and get great nutrition from MonaVie’s world-class products. But the biggest lesson I learned was that confidence and courage do not come from change, physical looks, or good health; it comes from within. That meant God had already put the potential inside of me and it is up to me to draw on it and bring it out. The hardest part of this was to decide and commit. That takes courage.The rest is just a direct result of positive efforts applied over time – the slight edge. I encourage all of you to take that step in whatever direction you have been hesitant to go. Whatever LIFE category it falls under, you can do it too. God bless.
Wow! Not much more I need to add to those testimonies. The LIFE opportunity is a multifaceted approach, helping people discover answers and applying real-life solutions to some of our most vexing problems of this day. Mental and Physical Fitness, Personal Finances, Friends and Faith are just some of what LIFE offers. Come and learn what awaits you on your journey in LIFE. Godspeed
