Thank-you Lou!

People Like You and Ben help keep this industry ALIVE!
What really hit me about Ben was the fact that he kept getting back up.
We all have a finish line we need to Envision, for that is which kept Ben going.
He knew EXACTLY where he wanted to end up.
Why do we fall????
“To Learn To Pick Ourselves Back Up”
Never Give Up, Always see the Finish Line In Your Mind, and when You do Fall,
Always, Always get back up and Finish What You Started!!!
Thanks again Lou,

God Bless You Lou,

We want to personally Thank You for sharing this incredible story with us and all marketers who subscribe to your emailings. This young man could teach a lot of marketers many things about “keeping their spirit up” and perserverance!

Being 20+ year marketers in business, we’ve both seen most of the ups and downs companies and individuals can go through. There are lot of negative people and quitters that we have seen lose their “spirit” over the years. They just couldn’t seem to get past failures in one area or another or they didn’t have self confidence they needed to succeed at any one thing. “Fear” is a word that comes to mind and is one of the biggest reasons why people with life devastating health issues and people who fear their own abilities or inabilities fail to perservere in life and in business.

BEN had fears but __he was fearless in his belief that he could beat his own record and HE DID! This is what everyone needs to know __whatever it is they fear, they CAN beat that “fear” and become a winner, just like Ben has done and no doubt will do more!

Not to take the focus off Ben’s accomplishments __but I’d like to share a little of my wife’s story and hope it encourages others just as Ben’s story has added even more encouragement to both us and many others.

Five years ago, my wife died for over 45 minutes, was then revived by in a coma and hospitalized for 10 weeks. When she came home her body had atrophied from her mid chest down and she didn’t walk for 4 years. Doctors and therapists had her in many braces and told her she probably would never walk again.

My wife has progressed Type II Diabetes, severe nerve damage in both legs and feet, a heart difibrulator, suffers ongoing health issues and pain daily but she IS walking again due to her perserverance and belief in Gods miracles. It took a while for her to begin walking again and years of both hospital and home therapy. Today, 5 years later, in talking with her by phone __you would never suspect she had any health issues at all and she wouldn’t be the first to tell you about them either because she doesn’t focus on herself as much as she does helping other people.

Through it all and constant pain, she works non-stop and she’s always uplifting, motivating, helping and encouraging others daily. She has the attitude that “nothing is impossible” and just never quits no matter how bad she feels. My wife has an incredible ability to make people laugh and smile and enjoys being able to help others as she feels there are many who merely by “being there” help her daily also.

She’s the first to offer help when anyone needs it and will go to most any length even sacrificing sleep to ensure she completes the task. She laughs and cries and is sensitive to others needs but she loves working with people and seeing them succeed in life and in business!

WE are going to continue your sharing this video and story of BEN, a young man that never quit but kept on going! BEN is truly a Success Story in so many ways and his family and friends are incredible Success Stories too! We believe that ALL marketers NEED to see “Ben’s Story”!

Lou __Thank You a thousand times over (and then some) for sharing this incredible
“pearl” of wisdom for all to treasure!

Truly a tear jerker. I took this from a presonal view as my oldest boys (twins 26 yrs.old) were born 9 weeks early and the second one, Daniel has secondary cerebral palsy. Daniel has walked with a walker since he was 8 yrs. old.

He has made fantastic strides over the years, living in New York and working full time. After seeing him this past weekend I find that he just started walking with a 4 prong cane which will give him extremely more independence. (yay)

As in everything in life it all boils down to persistence.

Great video.

Desire leads to Discipline which leads to Dedication which leads to such a massive and powerful journey of success. Wow! No matter where we finish we when we finish we know we are Successful!! So LET the DESIRE BURN and BURN. It is said without outrageous Dreams and Desire we will never live an outrageous life.
