Apollo 11 — it took a village

For me, it was a weekend of nostalgia watching the National Archives film footage of Apollo 11. Born in 1969, I felt American pride for this most celebrated mission. I had goosebumps experiencing this most celebrated mission while listening to the people who worked Mission Control. I could almost feel their nail-biting and uneasiness during that unprecedented day.

Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins are American icons, as were the hundreds of thousands of people working behind the scenes that made this mission possible. The sheer amount of manpower it took to achieve such a remarkable feat of technological innovation was breathtaking! It really did take a village to support the astronauts and make this moment in history.

Think about your PURE business and what it takes to build your community. There is so much we can learn from the Apollo 11 mission that can be applied to our own personal missions.

Be ambitious — Talk about a strong desire to achieve something! The years of training and planning and learning these astronauts went through could not have happened without an incredible desire, determination and longing to achieve success, and they did! Focus on your dreams. What is your purpose, destiny and legacy? Share the products and opportunity with people in your own backyard. Be hungry and the doors to success will open.

“Don’t merely make a living; make a life. Launch out farther than
you’ve ever gone before.” – Buzz Aldrin

Value teamwork — As Armstrong and Aldrin took those famous first steps, Collins was orbiting the moon waiting for his friends’ return. He was part of the larger effort. Everyone had an important job to do and they all worked in alignment. Anchor your business with a strong foundation. Be that person whom you want to attract. Check in frequently with your team members to offer support, educate them and make sure everything is running smoothly.

“We had hundreds of thousands of people all dedicated to doing the perfect job,
and I think they did about as well as anyone could ever have expected.”
– Neil Armstrong

Have confidence — From takeoff, to the precarious moon landing to re-entry, these astronauts had nerves of steel. They believed in themselves and their ability to succeed. They had confidence in the technology and the people behind them. Dare to believe big! Remember that you are strong and capable. Disbelief is negative power whereas belief is positive power.

“Mars is there, waiting to be reached.” – Buzz Aldrin

Learn from your mistakes — It took the failure of Apollo 1, and other errors, to achieve Apollo 11 success. You will make mistakes, and that’s okay. See a learning opportunity in all things. Be sure to listen to your mentor; they’ve been in your footsteps and have made the mistakes before. They are aware of the situations that can trip you up. Attend UNITE where you’ll get valuable training. As a leader, you can empower your team to make better decisions and become the solutions to the problems.

“I think we’re going to the moon because it’s in the nature of the human being to face challenges. It’s by the nature of his deep inner soul…we’re required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream.” – Neil Armstrong

Planning and Communication. You are in the business of growing and developing the skills of your people. Write down the results you want to achieve. Use the tools you have at your disposal and always schedule the next step. Author Judith Glaser said, “Conversations are the power that launches transformational products into the world.” Go out there are start those conversations. That first handshake, greeting, email and call can set the stage for a lifetime!

“We are off! And do we know it, not just because the world is yelling “Lift-off”
in our ears, but because the seats of our pants tell us so! Trust your instruments, not your body, the modern pilot is always told, but this beast is best felt.
Shake, rattle and roll!” – Michael Collins

Recognize each other — At every opportunity the astronauts recognized the efforts of their teammates back on earth. Acknowledge your team’s hard work. Fuel their continued work.

“I guess we all like to be recognized not for one piece of fireworks, but for the ledger of our daily work.” – Neil Armstrong

Just as Apollo 11 mission is an event that is stamped in our minds, so too is the legacy you’ll leave with your PURE business. Go the distance and make that difference.

You have the ability to do more than you can imagine!

Whole Health and our freedom of choice

There’s a famous quote from Winston Churchill that says, “Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any nation can have.”1 We should reflect on this in the United States as we prepare to celebrate our day of independence.

We should think about all the blessings we have been bestowed, and be thankful for the countless freedoms we get to enjoy: the freedom to vote, the freedom of speech and the freedom of religion. We also have the freedom to choose how we care for ourselves and each other.

What does Whole Health look like to you?

Maybe it’s an understanding of how your body functions and responds to the environment. It could simply be a state of mind. Perhaps it means being balanced in all areas of your life … work, exercise, rest, and having a social network, family and friends. At PURE, we are on a mission to deliver Whole Health. One way is by providing products based on the best of science and nature. We believe in the body’s natural ability to heal itself, inside and out, and it all starts with giving the body what it needs.

Everything in our lives is directly affected by how we care for ourselves. We have the freedom to eat what we want, to get proper exercise, to surround ourselves with the right people, to get enough sleep and to avoid stress. It is up to us to make those decisions.

Remember that along with that freedom of choice comes the responsibility to extend that freedom into the lives of others. As a PURE Independent Business Owner, you know what health looks like and how to achieve optimal well-being, and it is your right to share that with others.

Apply Whole Health to your business, too.

To quote Winston Churchill again, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”

As a servant leader, you lead by lifting others up. You understand that success means putting others needs before yours and helping them perform as highly as possible. It’s that leadership philosophy that we embrace at PURE.

So, as you gather with friends and family this holiday weekend, remember how lucky we are to have the freedom to choose a healthy lifestyle. Share that with the larger community and make an impact.

To help celebrate our freedom, buy one GoYin bottle and get one for only $4 at checkout, now through Friday, July 7, 2019.* A CORE4 product, GoYin can help you balance your mood and stress levels while enhancing your well-being.**

Use GoYin in your summer recipes, share it with a friend or give a bottle to a local troop or veteran. Check out these GoYin popsicles to make and share.

To order, visit shop.livepure.com, contact SalesSupport@livepure.com or call 866-535-3888.

May your Independence Day be filled with happiness and Whole Health.

Remember the real meaning of Memorial Day

Memorial Day officially marks the beginning of summer as we fire up the grill and enjoy time together.  Many of us are celebrating graduations, picnicking and planning vacations.  It’s a time to revel in the sun and just feel good.

The three-day weekend brings out a lot of excitement, but it’s also time to remember the true meaning of the holiday. It’s a special day to mourn the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives defending this country. We’re reminded of the tremendous price Americans paid throughout history to preserve our democracy, our values and our way of life.

Memorial Day began as Decoration Day in the 1800s, a time to honor those who died in the Civil War. People celebrated by decorating the graves of the fallen. General John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) designated May 30 as a day “for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land.”1

Originally, only soldiers who had died in the Civil War were honored. The first observance of the holiday after the Civil War was in Charleston, South Carolina on May 1, 1865.2  After WWI, the holiday extended honor to all Americans who have died while in military service. Their ultimate sacrifice is the reason for the freedoms we have today. We must not take those for granted.

Harry S. Truman said, “Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.” No, we will never forget, and we can still make a difference by proudly supporting our veterans.

PURE invites you to give back with a simple dollar donation. A dollar might not seem like much, but it’s life changing to a veteran. As you prepare those hot dogs and hamburgers, take just a moment to visit livepure.com/giveback to support the Disabled American Veterans organization, American veterans and their families. They were there for you, be there for them.

Remember our heroes! They never die; they live in our memories!

Happy Memorial Day!
