Life Business Compensation Plan

LIFE founder Claude Hamilton has played a huge role in making this compensation plan available to all who choose to participate in it. I’ve been in business with Claude now for almost seven years and one of the things I appreciate the most about him is the fact that he always under promises and over delivers.

Throughout those seven years I’ve witnessed Claude, Orrin Woodward and the “Team’s” policy council constantly search for ways to take what was “good” and turn it into “Great“. They’ve worked relentlessly with other companies that we were associated with to try to make changes that would help the people in the field get the best results possible. Orrin Woodward is well known in the industry for being the whistle-blower who exposed some much needed truths.

I think what makes this compensation plan so amazingly powerful is the fact that it has been created by people who understand not only the corporate side of our business but they also understand the needs of the people in the field. The founders are men and women who are in the living rooms night after night doing the work. They have a unique perspective of what the field needs because they are the field. For example, how many times have we heard people complain about our politicians and say things like “those guys make decisions up there in their offices but they don’t have a clue what the average people like us have to deal with!” I can admit that I am guilty of saying that in the past.  Having the LIFE founders in the field gathering data makes a huge difference when it comes to results for all who choose to enjoy this journey. The fact that the Policy Council also makes all decisions means there is no politics involved when it comes to improving in any area. We can rest assured that when something isn’t working exactly as anticipated the proper modifications are made to enhance the process.

With all of this being said, I’d like to share with you some exciting perks that have just been added to this already wonderful Compensation Plan. LIFE has just recently added “Dream Vacation destinations” that most people couldn’t even imagine ever going on. Take the time to read through these destinations and try to imagine yourself in a hammock somewhere under a palm tree reading a good book or how about chasing your kids through Disney!

In my seven years of being involved I’ve never seen anything come even close to these trips. As if the trips weren’t enough, the company also slap on “One Time Cash Awards“. They send us on free trips, give us one time cash awards and all of this on top of the regular compensation plan income!

All that is needed now is for all of us to go out and do the work necessary to qualify. The “Life” business isn’t a guarantee, but it’s a chance to “Live The Life You’ve Always Wanted“.

Boldly pursue excellence,

Mental Fitness Challenge – Create new habits!

It’s been a week since I wrote the article about Claude Hamilton and the Team’s Policy Counsel launching their flagship product, the “Mental Fitness Challenge”. I must say I was expecting great things from this product and my expectations were well founded! There are so many people leaving comments on the different leaders Blogs about how they are already seeing results after only two weeks involved on the 90 days challenge. If you want to view some of these comments I’ve added links to some of the RT and PC members blogs on my homepage. I strongly recommend that you click and read through them and you’ll witness some great stories of personal victories.

Research has shown that “eight in ten (78%) of Canadians have failed to keep passed resolutions; only two in ten (22%) of us have managed to keep all of  our resolutions in the past. These statistics come from a recent Ipsos Reid poll conducted on behalf of Sun Life Financial, the title of the article was “Canadians Quick to Make New Year’s Resolutions, But Slow to See Them Through”.

You have to admit that those statistics are very revealing and strongly support  what Claude Hamilton and Orrin Woodward have been telling us all along: “It’s mind over body”. Is it that the resolutions were not worth keeping or that most of us don’t have the mental discipline to actually follow through? How many of us know people who don’t follow through on their commitments? You might know a father who’s been telling his wife and kids for the last few years that he’ll take them away on a camping trip but it never happens. It’s maybe even gotten to the point that the children don’t even ask anymore.

Last year I witnessed something very sad, one of my good friends (names will remain anonymous to protect the guilty!)  had been promising his daughter he’d finish a room for her in the basement. One night I was visiting and the conversation turned to the basement room, his daughter (10 years old at the time) said “Ya he’s been promising to finish a room for me but like all his other promises they never happen!”. Needless to say I was caught off guard. The sad part in this story wasn’t only the lack of commitment or the obvious lack of respect that this little girl had for her father but his wife who was present couldn’t even jump in and defend my friend. Don’t get me wrong I’m totally against  children disrespecting their parents but how many times did this little girl have to sit there and listen to her father talk the talk but never walk the walk?

On the flip side of this coin I have another story. Over the last few years I’ve had the great honor of mentoring with Claude Hamilton and one thing he’s thought me is that it doesn’t matter if it’s a small commitment or a big one, a commitment is a commitment! Late last spring my wife Sonia, my daughter Olivia and myself were driving back from Ottawa on a road trip where my mother had given Olivia a trampoline as a gift.  This voyage is a twelve to fourteen hours drive so if you have children you can surely appreciate the great degree of patience and creativity needed to keep a 2-year-old entertained for twelve hours. As a bribe I told Olivia if she was good I’d set up the trampoline and we’d go jump on it that same night once we got home. After being on the road from two A.M. to four P.M. we finally arrived in the little town where we now reside. We stopped in for supper at Sonia parent’s house and everyone except Sonia were surprised when I advised everyone that we were in a hurry to get home so that I could follow through on the commitment I had made to my two-year old daughter. We got home, I spent the next hour setting up the trampoline and Olivia got to jump on it for approximately fifteen minutes before heading to bed.

I know you might be thinking “she was just two years old, was it really that important to set it up that night?” You’re right, she probably wouldn’t have even noticed or remembered my promise and I could have just set it up the next day and she would have been as happy, but I would have noticed and known that I wasn’t following through. I have Claude to thank for helping me incorporate that great principle in my life.

We could list off a bunch scenarios of people who haven’t followed through but the point I’m trying to make is that there’s a serious need in today’s society for men and women who will follow through on commitments. As Orrin Woodward as often said “Anyone can find problems but it takes leaders to find solutions”. With the self-assessment test  you have the tools to identify problem areas and then the solution is to take the “90 Day Mental Fitness Challenge” which has been setup to help us create new habits in our lives that will on a daily basis take us closer and closer to “Living The Life We’ve Always Wanted“.

Albert Einstein once said “the definition of  insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” If what you’re doing today isn’t giving you the results you want, It’s time to change! Take the Challenge, and take a front row seat to your victory!

Boldly pursue excellence,

Mental Health Challenge

On the weekend of April 27th in Columbus, Ohio, the LIFE business held its Spring Leadership Convention. They launched their “flagship product” called the Mental Fitness Challenge. This ” Challenge” that Orrin Woodward, Claude Hamilton, Chris Brady and the rest of the founders of the “LIFE” business have put together is absolutely an amazing product to help all of us transform our lives.

There’s an ancient Chinese proverb that says “read 10,000 books, travel 10,000 miles.” the writer from whom I borrowed this quote explained it this way “This is a lifelong suggestion for expanding your horizons by gaining knowledge, experience, and seeing the world.” Now you may not like to travel and you may not be attracted to material things  but can you truly say that you’re living the life you’ve always wanted? If you’re anything like I was, you wake up in the morning and you think “is this it?” or maybe you know things aren’t the way you’d like them to be but you’re not sure how to change them or even worst you’ve given up years ago on living a life of excellence. Maybe, you’re doing pretty good but in the bottom of your heart you know there’s great out there.

What if there was a way to participate in a program of personal growth that could eventually help you tap into your fullest potential? Imagine “Living The Life You’ve Always Wanted.” Well folks that is exactly what the founders of “LIFE” are offering! This organization of top-notch leaders is led by Orrin Woodward, winner of the “2011 IAB TOP 10 SMALL BUSINESS AWARD“, rated number 6 “Leadership Guru” in the world, best-selling author and so much more. At the helm of this organization we also find Chris Brady, also best-selling author and number 11 “Leadership Guru”. These two men along with the other Policy Counsel Members have figured out how to package the knowledge and deliver it in such a way as to allow the common person like you and I to  achieve greatness.

The “MFC” starts out with a Self Assessment Test to allow us to establish a baseline and give us a glimpse into areas of strength and weakness that we need to work on. Once we have this baseline identified it’s a lot easier to put a game plan in place to allow us to maximize on our strengths and overcome our weakness.

I personally  challenge you to take the “MFC” and let’s grow together. North-America and the world for that matter need Leaders who are ready and willing to change in order to make a difference. Will you do your part in improving this great continent that we live in? I know it might sound like a huge goal but it starts with us taking responsibility for personal growth. I can’t wait to complete the 90 day challenge and see just how much I can improve!

Claude Hamilton has often told me, “get your thinking right and all else will fall in place”. That’s what the “MFC” is all about, it’s about having access to the right information then applying that information in our lives to allow us to Live The Life We’ve Always Wanted.

Enjoy the Journey, and come travel 10,000 miles with us!
