Stephen Covey talks a lot about people climbing ladders only to discover that the ladder was leaning against the wrong wall.
In other words, we work hard at acquiring and/or accomplishing the wrong things.
What a horrible — and easy — way to live a life of regret. To put so much time, effort, money, and energy into projects and then actually gain the things we seek, only to realize that those things weren't all we thought they'd be.
How many things in life would we stop pursuing if we were honest with ourselves and stopped to consciously think through,"What win I if I gain the thing I seek?"
Things Are Not What They Seem
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem A Psalm of Life", starts with this stanza:
"Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream ! —
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem."
So many of us seek wealth and fame, only to realize that they're not all they're cracked up to be.
Now, there may not be anything intrinsically wrong with wealth or fame, but should these be our end-all, be-all goals?
They may come as a natural byproduct, but are there not more worthy goals we can pursue?
The Importance of Balance
Sometimes, the things we seek are actually worthy goals, but we pursue them at the expense of other important things in life.
For example, we may work hard in our careers while neglecting our families. I know fathers who tragically regret missing out on the most important moments of their children's lives.
Or perhaps we seek grandiose manifestations of success while not appreciating the small moments.
Many times, our goals and pursuits are based simply on the path of least resistance and are therefore not worthy of our talents and true purpose.
Steve D'Annunzio talks about a concept that he calls "hard-easy, easy-hard." As he puts it:
"'Hard-easy' refers to those things in life that initially appear to be difficult, yet in the long-run they make life much easier and more enjoyable. On the other hand, 'easy-hard' refers to things that seem easy at first yet lead to far more difficulties down the road.
"For example, suppose a young boy steals a candy bar from a store. He did so because he thought that it would be easier to steal than to earn the money to buy the candy bar.
"However, it's clear that if he develops a habit of theft, life will end up being much more difficult for him (easy-hard). On the other hand telling the truth and facing the consequences may seem like the hard thing to do, but will make his life so much easier as he develops (hard-easy)."
Do your goals inspire you? Do they cause you to stretch and work? Or are you climbing a short ladder?
Stop and Think
I harp on this so much that I probably sound like a broken record, but I can't stress it enough: You've got to consistently take time to think through everything you're doing in life.
A little introspection can go a long way — especially if it's consistent.
Not only should you set goals, but you should also assess your heart to see if it's in the right place. Are you seeking vain glory, or trying to make a difference? Do you want wealth to show off, or to serve?
As King Solomon taught,
"Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding."
In all your pursuits, make sure your ladder is leaning against the right wall before you start climbing.
Hello my Fab friends,
Wanted to share some product fact sheets on the new products launched by Max on June 26th.
Max ATP is the first CLEAN ENERGY DRINK on the market. Can you imagine consuming an energy drink that is actually good for your health?
I can’t tell you how excited I am to offer a product like this! The energy drink market is 10B a year and we all inherently know that what has been offered is not good for us. We wouldn’t think of giving one of them to our kids- Why would we take one ourselves?
And Max N-Fuse delivers total cellular nutrition (further supports glutathione production) and cellular protection. This is not simply a multi vitamin.
Check these out and let me know if you have any questions.
Saturday, July 3rd
11:00 a.m. CST**
(**adjust for your time zone**)
Featuring Guest Speakers
President of Max International
Mike will provide an update on the state of Max International and will recap our product launch events.

Hello all my Fabbies,
First I want to apologize. I have not been able to engage with you all in the way I truly want to. I am still holding down a full time job with my logistic business while trying to build my Max business. It is difficult to find the time each day to do everything in the way I want to do it and as a result my ability to know each of you the way I want to has been impacted. I am going to try to do better!!
I am “OVER THE MOON“!
As you may have read recently, Max International launched 2 new products on June 26th. One is a reformulation of our vitamin mineral supplement Max N-Fuse and the other is a CLEAN ENERGY shot- Max ATP.
As I’m sure you know, energy products accounted for $9 billion last year. However, “energy” is a term used loosely in marketing. Energy drinks/products “GAME” the body (stimulating the sympathetic nervous system) via caffeine & stimulants – it creates a SPIKE feeling & people wrongly associate that with true "ENERGY" .... and then pay the price later when they crash. That’s JUNK ENERGY – FACT: 30 minutes after consuming a SUGAR free energy drink, if you were to draw your blood, you would have the blood profile of a cardiac arrest patient. It dumps sugar & ultimately creates sticky proteins. GOOGLE Red Bull - it even makes this statement in Wikipedia
MaxATP creates just that......ATP - (REAL energy).... inside the cell, then cleans up after itself – neutralizing free radicals created in the production of ATP - this is a HEALTHY clean cellular energy product
Powered by RiboCeine – the patented and peer reviewed compound created by Dr. Nagasawa
RiboCeine gets Ribose & Cystein in the cell - Ribose gets this through the digestive tract & into the cell, the Ribose is used in ATP production / Cystein creates Glutathione to clean up the mess left after producing the ATP.
Our key ingredient, RiboCeine, is manufactured in a pharmaceutical plant.
Guy’s there are some great companies out there offering many products to support the body. I commend all of them for their efforts and contributions. The reason I am over the moon is because Max has created something entirely new- something revolutionary, something that is creating an entire new category in health and wellness.
The simplest way I can explain- there are many ways to support the body externally- With external antioxidants. There is one way to support the body internally and it is brought and entrusted to ME by Max International.
In the short time I have been a part of the Max team, I have affected lives of others. I have seen our Fab Friend Cristina Corral get relief from chronic back pain, I have people with arthritis,Autism , ADHD, Parkinsons, depression, shingles, neuropathy, cardiac concerns,excema, diabetes, and dementia whose quality of life has been improved by Max products. I have helped people suffering financially have hope again for their future.
So how does Max accomplish all this- well I am not a scientist or a doctor. The best way I can explain it is that if your cell is weak, inflamed or vulnerable to attack by oxidative damage and free radicals external anti-oxidants can only be expected to do so much. BUT if the cell is healthy and protected from the inside, if the cell is able to export the toxins we are all exposed to? Well, you see the myriad of possibilities?
As a company with nutritional products I can not portray that any of our products treat, prevent or cure any disease. What I can do is offer you the opportunity to hear and understand the science and significance of what Max does in the body and you can draw your own conclusion.
Ladies, the products I have in my hands could have easily been sold to a pharmaceutical company. It was the mission of Dr. Robert Keller and Dr. Herbert Nagasawa to get their life’s culmination of work out to the WORLD and that was not going to be accomplished in any other way than direct marketing.
A few days ago, June 23rd, Dr. Nagasawa, Max International Chief Scientist was honored by the National Institute of Health - Homeland Security Annual Counter Measures Against Chemical Threats Symposium – Dr. Nagasawa presented his 3 minute cyanide antidote discovery for the Department of Defense.
After 9/11 a call went out to all scientists across America to come up with a 3 minute cyanide antidote - Nagasawa did it. He missed our product launch of this new product to attend this NIH meeting.
I am honored, I am blessed, I am “OVER THE MOON” because my life will continue to be fulfilled as I am able to profoundly impact the lives of so many. Praise to God for putting me in the right place at the right time.
I would be honored to speak with any of you who would like to learn more about these amazing products and/or this amazing business opportunity.
