Our Tavala Count down to 2018

                Did You Hear that Sound . . .

. . . it was the 2-Month Warning for 2017 !

Like in football, the last two minutes can often be the most exciting. And the last two MONTHS of your year can be exciting, too.

But it takes some discipline, some real commitment—maybe even some recalibration and implementing some new systems.

The last 60 days of the year include some holidays which we certainly want to enjoy….and luckily for those of us with Tavala, we have a product called TRIM that gives you energy- suppresses the appetite, reduces cravings, helps you boost your metabolism and lose weight.  Last holiday many people actually LOST WEIGHT.

But here we also want to discuss business and we also want to finish the year strong.

What are your goals for the balance of 2017? What do you want to achieve? What do you want to change? What will set you up for a great start in 2018?

You can dig down deep and be a 10 on the “Go-For-It Scale” and knock out your goals. Or, you can slack off and tell yourself you’ll start fresh in the New Year. Which will it be?

What’s stopping you? Most of the time, we’re unclear of the next step and so we don’t take it. If that’s the case, your next step is to get clear on what you need to do. Don’t let confusion and fear keep you from building your confidence as you chip out the last—and perhaps the most important—yardage of the game.

This is YOUR life. This is YOUR game. It’s no one else’s to play. No one will play it for you.

By winning in the last two months of 2017, you’ll be able to practice the Peak to Peek Principle. You’ll be able see further and clearer from the last peak you climb. And in doing so you’ll set even bigger goals for next year.  With Jef Welch, a masterful leader for 30+ years in network marketing, joining Tavala new systems are in place and it will be easier than ever to grow and stay on track.

Last December was a winning month for Dave and I in a number of ways—both personally and professionally.  For one, we joined Tavala and began sharing the opportunity with people we wanted to work with- and we resigned from a company we had been with for over 10 years.  People ask us all the time WHY…and the simple answer is because it was no longer serving us professionally in network marketing and because our reputations were at stake.  We simply couldn’t make good on some things that we simply not working.  (No one wants to be on a ship that is sinking, especially when you take your ‘family’ that trusts you with you- right?)

2017 has been a transformative year for us and we’re looking to making November and December of this year a Slam-Dunk win!  How about you?

Let’s Play!

Make it a great day,

KUDOS:  I owe it to a friend who sends me awesome emails periodically and many of them spur on ideas for blogs.  So, I’d like to give credit to my friend, Michael Angier, founder of Success Net with his lovely wife Dawn as he wrote a good share of this blog in an email that I received…. of course I added my ‘twist’ to it and made it applicable to our business and life.

  To learn more about Success Net go to www.SuccessNet.org.  I highly recommend his business coaching & training and books.

Goals & Dreams by Steven Gundry, MD…..good stuff.

I received this email today from Dr. Steven Gundry, author of the “PLANT PARADOX”.  I thought it was worth sharing… on GOALS.

Do you want to accomplish all of your goals and dreams?

Of course, I’m asking already knowing the answer is a resounding “yes.”

And in just a moment, I’m going to give you a simple, powerful tip to help you achieve anything you set your mind to.

But first, I think it’s important to show you what might be holding you back in the first place…

You see, there are two things that have the ability to stop you dead in your tracks when it comes to your goals.

I call them, “dream killers.” But you might know them better as perfectionism and fear.

Dream Killer #1: Perfectionism

Now, there’s a quote I love from my good friend, Maria Shriver. And it goes like this:

“Perfectionism doesn’t make you feel perfect; it makes you feel inadequate.”
~ Maria Shriver, Journalist and activist

And it’s so true.

Perfectionism is just like quicksand — it drags you and your dreams down with it.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I used to fall into this “perfection trap” all the time.

The problem is, waiting until the perfect moment to start something almost always ends in failure or disappointment.

And the reason is simple: There is no perfect moment in life. There will always be another obstacle waiting just around the corner.

Which leads us to…

Dream Killer #2: Fear

Or as I call it, “the what-if game.”

You know, what if this goes wrong, or what if that goes wrong…

Now, if this sounds like you, you’re not alone. Fear is a major roadblock for countless people around the world.

You see, fear is destructive because it only allows you see the drawbacks of a situation.

And it’s hard to make any progress if you’re only thinking about the negative, right?

But what’s refreshing to know is, so many amazing things are born out of uncertainty!

Just take a look at this quote I dug up from famed author, Neale Donald Walsch:

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
~ Neale Donald Walsch, Author

The best things happen in those moments when you don’t feel comfortable.

Think about it…

When you first asked your spouse out or did anything for the first time… were you nervous?

You bet you were!

So, what’s the simple solution to these two potentially destructive “dream killers?”

The Dream Maker: Just get started

Believe me, I know how simplistic that sounds. But it works.

And don’t just take my word for it…

Here’s what Robert Henri — acclaimed artist and painter — has to say about this philosophy:

“Do not let the fact that things are not made for you, that conditions are not as they should be, stop you. Go on anyway. Everything depends on those who go on anyway.”

You see, anything worth chasing is difficult — at first. And then something amazing happens…

You start to build momentum.

Soon, those little things turn into BIG things. And all of the sudden you begin to see progress.

As my good friend, Tony Robbins always says: “Progress equals happiness.”

So, even if you’re not where you want to be yet…

Just get started and you will get there.

I believe in you,

Steven Gundry, MD

Thank you Dr. Gundry for your email today.

This was a great reminder for me today.  At first I thought the good ol’ doctor was going to pitch me on one of his products….but I was pleasantly surprised.

If this helped you in any way, I’d love to know.  Its always fun to share inspiring ideas, words, concepts with friends.
