Mother Teresa – Do It Anyway

Mother Teresa - Do It Anyway

Thank you Michelle Mielke for sharing this for so many to hear and grow from on Saturday night’s LIFE live event in Whitewater:

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
― Mother Teresa

Banana Split

Through our connection to the LIFE community and the information provided by leaders like Orrin and Laurie Woodward and Dan and Lisa Hawkins, my family has been inspired to grow our faith.  We have begun the process of developing a family culture; not only appreciating each other, but also the time we’ve been given as a family.  This is something that I formerly didn’t understand the true value of.  The following video is about an idea one mom had to make the most of her short time with her son, and use their situation to create awareness for people around the world to take the time to cherish a moment, and a banana split, with the ones they love.  I challenge everyone to do this, not only to honor Ryan and his mother, but to honor those you cherish most with your #1 asset: your time.

May God bless Ryan, his mother, and you!

Success in LIFE: Brian and Amy Christian

New Turbo 25 on LIFE Team

Brian and Amy Christian came into the information LIFE offers with two children, a mortgage, a home improvement loan, a car payment, a truck payment, a camper payment, and a Great Dane. They both came from bigger families and were told to get good grades, graduate college, and get a good job and you will be great! They had a good marriage, but were not able to spend time together due to their careers and everything else they juggled. Brian has worked for a water conditioning company for over 20 years, since he was a teenager. He found his passion working as a paid on call firefighter. He served on boards for the department and was a firefighter of the year. Amy worked with delinquent youth and individuals with disabilities to help them obtain employment. She served on many community committees, local chambers of commerce and was a big sister for Big Brothers/Big Sisters. Amy was openly looking for another way of life! Daily she would cry going to work after dropping off her kids at daycare. Amy was contacted by an old coworker and Dan and Lisa Hawkins showed her this idea. She jumped at it! Brian was not as excited, but wanted to support her.

They said the impact the LIFE business has had on their family is beyond measure. Every single part of their lives has been touched by this information. They continue to grow everyday in their faith, marriage, relationships and parenting.   They are down a home improvement loan, a car payment, a truck payment, a camper payment, and a Great Dane, and have added a 7-year-old Labrador.  Amy is home schooling their children and they have lunch with Brian everyday.

Their son Nash states, “The biggest rewards from LIFE are that his Dad and Mom are working together to help other people.  Even though they have to leave us with a babysitter sometimes; it is worth it!” He feels having Mom at home and home schooling are the best. Nash love to write the names of the people that we are helping up on our patio door.

Maren, their daughter, thinks that the biggest blessing is Jesus Christ in their lives. She loves that her family all worked together to hit their goal. She liked calling her Dad and telling him each person they helped get this information on the way toward hitting their goal.

Amy said, “As a family we talked about our goal everyday and what the schedule was, so that we all knew what our roles. Once you get principle-based thinking in your head and in your family culture, the family unit becomes so strong.”

Brian and Amy feel it is their calling to bring back strong families to our nation.  We see them constantly growing, serving their team, their community and individuals who they know in whatever areas that they can.  Their family had a goal to hit in order to a hotel and indoor water park, and they did it!  The faith and perseverance to run together no matter how long or what it took to hit this goal tells us that this family is on track to live out their calling and lead many others to do the same.  At a time when our nation needs it most and in a situation where they could have chosen to leave well enough alone, the Christians chose to stand up and lead.  We are thankful for their example and achievements, and excited for what is to come.

Fisher’s LIFE Subscription Top Ten – May 2012

Hey, Hey!  Happy May.

The LIFE and MFC (mental fitness challenge) are having such an amazing impact on communities and lives across the nation.  It is breathtaking and hair-raising, as we continue to hear the changes that people are able to make with new information.  I was at a challenge group last night and heard a gentleman share from his heart what he had learned and how it was impacting his marriage and relationships with his children; it was amazing.  So we want to hear from you, too.

We are going to post our top quote and then we want to know yours.

“Maybe your net worth to the world could be stated as your good habits minus your bad habits?”

Spread the word and send the subscribers you know here to add their two cents. We will post the top ten from your point of view.  Let’s see who is listening and reading out there and what valuable takeaways were in the May LIFE subscriptions.

Fisher’s LIFE Subscription Top Ten – April 2012

1.  A lot of times the first idea that hits your subconscious mind becomes the strongest one and sometimes gets stuck in there.

2.  People have control of only three things in life:  the thoughts you think, the images you visualize and the actions you take.

3.   What a budget does is take the impulse out of buying.

4.  Define success because that gives you a starting point.

5.  You can save a lot of money when you pack something to eat verses eating out.

6.  Your kids are gonna learn about the birds and the bees from someone by age 7, and the first one they hear it from will form their foundational thoughts about it.

7.  Don’t let the next five years go by without defining some milestones for yourself.

8.  “My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed,”  Andrew “Stonewall” Jackson.

9.  It’s not so much about what you do, it’s about who you are.

10.  As we start to fix problems, we start to see the real problem is us.

Thanks so much to everyone who makes it possible for us to get this life-changing information!

Richard and Jammie Fisher

Perspective

One of the most powerful things in life is utilizing the perspective of a mentor.  
 
 
 
 
Things can be looking great,
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
but when we get some time with our mentors: it’s lights out! and lights on!  all at once.

Wow, there’s just no comparison to the results you can get with the help of someone who has been down the path in front of you, or over the bridge for the sake of this illustration.  It’s priceless.  
 
Some folks are able to find a mentor in life on their own, I didn’t.  Others utilize the rapidly growing life coaching industry and are able to pay for some outside perspective, but it often is from someone who hasn’t walked the same path or has maybe never even seen a bridge, much less the one you are trying to travel on.  For me, I was unwilling to invest the type of money it cost to have a qualified life coach in my previous career in education.  I am honored to have mentors, Dan and Lisa Hawkins, in our life today.  It may be the most under-promoted, underutilized piece of the LIFE Team system (and it’s free!).  We are thankful to have them and to have learned the value of seeking an outside perspective.  Sometimes what we see looks good and clear or we are on track, but with their perspective (like the difference in the views above) we can dial-up the speed and significance of the results and see what we saw before from a whole new vantage point.  Wherever you are at and in whatever you seek to do, find those who have gone before you, have the results you want and a vested interest in helping you get those same results and humble yourself to a mentor.  It is an illuminating experience!
