The Mental Fitness Challenge is going to help millions of people whip their thinking into shape and help them achieve the life they have always wanted! Here is what best selling author and leadership expert Orrin Woodward has to say about the Mental Fitness Challenge:

It is here – The Mental Fitness Challenge! The official release of the best systematically designed

personal development program ever.  I teamed up with NY Times best-selling author Chris Brady to conceptualize and develop a step-by-step process to grow personally from the inside out starting with private achievements, moving onto public achievements, then to leadership achievements, and eventually culminating in a legacy achievement. Anyone reading this who has the mind, heart, and desire to change can now achieve his or her destiny.

The Mental Fitness Challenge is based around my book RESOLVED: 13 Resolutions for LIFE. Each of the resolutions is focused on for one week, leading to a 13-week program designed to inculcate the 13 resolutions mindset into your life. I have never been happier with a personal development product, and I am excited to play a part in helping people fulfill their purposes. What is the life you have always wanted? Isn’t it time to pursue it today? 

Thousands of people have started their Mental Fitness Challenge.   Start yours today!

Living the LIFE you’ve always wanted using the Mental Fitness Challenge!

How is your fitness?

If you are like most people in our country you instantly thought of your weight, figure, or body image! Somewhere we have lost sight of our mental fitness! There is no shortage of diet plans, weight loss products, new exercise programs, or techniques.

Here is the problem with all of the fitness challenges, they all require mental fitness or they don’t work!

Let me explain. Every year in the beginning of January health clubs around the world have record enrollments and jammed parking lots! Only a few weeks later many of the new enrollees are gone and you can park right up front with no trouble.

Why? You see the health clubs, exercise equipment, and diet foods have always been there waiting for you to make a mental decision to use them! New Year’s resolutions are just decisions based on a new year, but most resolutions fail not because they are a bad idea, but because the person lacks the thinking and discipline to carry it out.

The Mental Fitness Challenge is a program designed to give you the life you’ve always wanted through better thinking and better association. You see, it will never be a better product, piece of equipment, or the latest craze that changes you, only your thinking can do that!

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
Albert Einstein

Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
Jim Rohn

You can read thousands of quotes from successful people all stating that the key to success is learning better ideas and applying them in your life. This MFC program is designed to give you the thinking it takes to succeed in any area you chose to improve. Maybe you want to lose weight, be a better parent or spose, or maybe improve you financial situation. The key to better results are better ideas!

Here is a short summary of the Mental Fitness Challenge from best selling author Chris Brady:

What is it? A life-changing package of information, including three best-selling books, a bunch of CDs, an online environment for tracking progress, a video library which accumulates for future viewing as videos stream in through email on a regular basis, a self-assessment test, unlimited 360 feedback, accountability partners, goal and tracking sheets, and more! This product encompasses years and years of learning how people change and maximize in their lives in all the 13 areas of resolutions from Orrin Woodward’s best seller RESOLVED.

I dare you to take the 90 Day Mental Fitness Challenge and begin to live the life you’ve always wanted!

God bless,

Wow, LIFE is exploding! We have some more recognition to give out today to a couple that is building the-life-business right!

Dave and Leah Stadel have moved on to the Turbo 50 level using the-team.biz training system, and are at the Leader level in the life compensation plan! Dave and Leah have proven to be solid leaders taking their community in the right direction. This recognition is a measure of how many people you are helping succeed in LIFE! The LIFE business offers world class information in the form of audios, books and events. The Turbo 50 level is a measurement of how many people you have coming to a LIFE event to learn. This is a significant level to hit because you are leading over 100 people to life changing information and association.

The Stadels have been in the home based business industry for a number of years working hard but not seeing the fruit of their labor. Now that they have joined LIFE and use the-team.biz training system they are hitting levels far above anything they have achieved in the past. This is a prime example of a couple who had the will and hunger to win but were lacking the right vehicle.

Dave and Leah are quickly becoming some of the top leaders in the Team STEALTH organization and making an impact though out the country!

Congratulations Dave and Leah for deciding to move on and live the life you have always wanted!

God bless,

Dan Hawkins

Are you ready to take the Mental Fitness Challenge?

Starting as early as today thousands of people are beginning to head toward Ohio. Some will come by bus, some by car and others by plane. Many will travel straight through the night to ensure they will not miss a thing! They are all headed to the Ohio State Buckeyes’ stadium filled with excitement, hope, and anticipation!

Many will bring Team flags to celebrate the victories of the ones playing the game and scream and shout with excitement as their favorite players take center stage!

While I write this many will think the Buckeyes have an NCAA game this weekend and all of their fans are going to watch the victory, but actually the Buckeyes are not playing.

This weekend the Ohio stadium will be filled with players of a different game, the game of LIFE! Thousands will show up and do all of the above with one huge difference, everybody in the stadium is playing the game and everyone can experience the victory for their own life! LIFE is about compensated communities working together to win in life!

While sports largely celebrate physical fitness, we celebrate Mental Fitness. We have invited down LIFE members from around the world to come and take the Mental Fitness Challenge!

The entire event will challenge the members to improve themselves mentally and inspire them to go out and help others improve their mental fitness as well.

Employ your time in improving yourself by other men’s writings so that you shall come easily by what others have labored hard for.
Socrates

What you are must always displease you, if you would attain to that which you are not.
Saint Augustine

You cannot expect to achieve new goals or move beyond your present circumstances unless you change.  Les Brown

We cannot become what we need to be, remaining what we are.                                                                                           Max Depree

Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think.                     Benjamin Disraeli

I could list thousands of quotes by people who have achieved great things on the importance of working on your Mental Fitness. I could also list some quotes from critics who have achieved nothing in life on why you should not improve yourself. I guess the question is, which group would you rather listen to and associate with?

There has never been a statue erected to a critic, and there has never been a statue erected to a man that did not have critics!

Do not expect the critics around you to be excited about you taking time and money to grow yourself and become something more, because by improving you expose their unwillingness to improve themselves!

The LIFE Community is a group of people who have decided to take the Mental Fitness Challenge and improve themselves everyday!

Join us down in Ohio as we celebrate your sacrifice, courage, commitment and yes YOUR VICTORY!

God bless,

Dan Hawkins

The story that is being written is a story that will fill history books of the future. Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady began their leadership journey and partnership about 20 years ago and are just getting started. In the latest release of the Top 30 Leadership Gurus both Orrin and Chris climbed higher on the chart for I believe the 3rd year in a row, now claiming the #6 and #11 spots respectively.

Orrin and Chris are writing a remarkable story that started in two very different places. Here is what author Tim Marks had to say about Orrin Woodward:

Orrin Woodward grew up in Columbiaville, Michigan, a town where the word “vision” wasn’t something you’d hear pop up at the average dinner table. His brilliant mind and work ethic were quickly noticed by his superiors at work, and his amazing engineering genius resulted in four engineering patents to his name by the age of 25. He was on the fast track to corporate “success”. But he was eventually exposed to some new business information, and he decided to go against the grain. He ignored the 95% advice of his friends, family and co-workers, and he plunged head-first into his first entrepreneurial venture.

Success didn’t come easily to Orrin. We might watch him speak on stage today in front of thousands of people and forget that he failed a public speaking class in college. We might read the chapter on conflict resolution in his incredible book RESOLVED and puzzle that this great man describes his younger self as a “no-people skills engineer.” We might see the tens of thousands of people at a Major function and forget that he struggled for several years to build a business community past 200 people. And we might look at his lifestyle, his homes in Florida and Michigan, and his yacht, and not realize the massive battles that Orrin and Laurie have waged behind the scenes on our behalf.

From humble beginnings Orrin Woodward has risen to elite heights in business and leadership, he has now been voted the number 6 leadership expert and claiming the #1 spot from the IAB.  Probably the biggest impact Orrin has had is not in what he has accomplished but the people he has helped along the way. I am so thankful that Orrin has chosen to pursue his purpose because in pursuing his purpose he has given me one as well.

Chris Brady has been introduced many times on stages across the globe as a man who could have succeeded anywhere. Here is what leadership expert Orrin Woodward had to share about Chris.

In truth, Chris Brady has been a dreamer and doer for as long as I have known him. For example, when I was working a full 12 week assignment in Wichita Falls, Texas, I lived in an apartment provided by the AC Rochester plant (one of the reasons I agreed to go to Texas, since I was dead broke.) :) Chris was assigned to Wichita Falls for a six-week term to help launch a new product. Since the plant was already paying for an apartment, Chris crashed with me and several other students during his time in Texas. It was my six weeks with him in Texas that solidified by belief that Chris was different from the rest of us students. Specifically, when comparing his purpose and vision to the rest of ours. Simply put, I had never met anyone so young who was as driven to break free from mediocrity as Chris Brady. His determination and confidence was scary for a low self-esteem person like I was at the time.

However, with that said, his boldness and direction intrigued me as much as it intimidated me. Why did this guy believe so strongly in his purpose? How did he achieve this magical elixir so young? Whatever it was, Chris’s drive led to massive achievements throughout college. In fact, he finished second in his 1990 graduating class at GMI-EMI (not too shabby considering it is a school filled with brains.) :) More impressively, after graduation, he qualified for the coveted GM scholarship program. GM selects only a few of the elite graduates for an all-expenses-paid masters program. Chris chose the prestigious Carnegie-Mellon Institute and graduated with a masters in manufacturing systems. Little did Chris know, however, that beyond his degree, he would gain something much more valuable – the love of his life, Terri (Estes) Brady, whom he met at Carnegie-Mellon.

With such an impressive start in life it is not a surprise that Chris is making such an impact with his newest venture called LIFE. Chris is now the author of numerous best selling books and was recently named the #11 leadership educator in the world!  He continues to learn, grow and teach across the globe to help people achieve the life they have always wanted through better ideas and information.

Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady are just warming up and are on their way to the top of the leadership and personal development field. Their business LIFE has only been in operation since November 1, 2011 and they are already getting national attention for the quality of their products and the growth of the business. The friendship and partnership of Orrin and Chris will go down in history, along with the stories of the thousands and soon millions of people they are impacting in a positive direction.

Thank you Orrin and Chris for allowing us all to pursue our purpose in LIFE!

God bless,

Dan Hawkins

Life Compensation Plan

by Chris Brady

When the LIFE company was established, one of the primary goals of its founders was to accomplish something in the area of compensation that hadn’t been done before. The heart behind this was to offer financial rewards that would truly be based upon performance.  But there was more.  It was also desired to put a heavy emphasis on revenue sharing with the field – this is “corporate speak” for not letting the company keep most of the profits.  While many (but certainly not all!) pay plans appear to be at least somewhat fair in terms of how the money is split amongst participants in the field, what often is NOT fair is how much money finds it way back to the corporation. The result is a subtle but real conflict of interest between the company and its field operators.  Therefore, right off the bat, LIFE designed its financial plan in such a way that most of its profits flow to the people who are actually doing the work to make the revenue happen in the first place. Right out of the gate, the percentage of gross revenue paid back to the field in commissions was structured to be in the (estimated) 65+% range.  This, as far as we know, is an industry high. Then, after just two months in business, LIFE announced its One Time Cash Award program, which put even more money into the field. It is still too soon to know the exact figures (as some of the qualification periods for these rewards don’t end until the end of 2012), but we believe this will put the percentage at something approaching 70%.

How can this be done? How can a group of founders establish a company on such lean terms? The answer comes from the strong belief that the best leadership for this type of company can be provided by those who are actually doing what they are teaching and expecting others to do.  THIS, as far as we know, has never been done before: corporate founders who deliberately establish the financial incentives in such a way as to keep themselves in the game, out in the trenches, and thereby providing the means by which most of the profits flow to the field.

And now there’s more.  On April 27th, at the Spring Leadership Convention in Columbus, Ohio, LIFE will announce  an additional incentive program representing even more new money being put into the compensation program. This will be a reward package that will be attractive to new participants and attainable early in their experience with the business – in other words, something they can qualify for in the near-term, not “someday.”

All of this, in the LIFE compensation plan, is in addition to LIFE’s groundbreaking position between the four industries of Personal Development, Home-based Businesses, Life coaching, and Community building, and takes advantage of LIFE’s high-value position in the market of personal development materials, wherein its products are among the lowest priced in the marketplace (in some cases hundreds of percent cheaper than its competition).  And, don’t forget, all of LIFE’s products are backed with a 30 day money back guarantee.

When LIFE founder Orrin Woodward says, “We don’t promise easy, but we do promise worth it!” the LIFE founders have done their best to structure a compensation plan and reward system that shows his statement to be much more than mere rhetoric.

I hope this helps!

Sincerely,

Chris Brady

We are getting so close to the big weekend in Ohio! The-team.biz will be hosting the LIFE Spring Leadership convention at the end of the month and you do not want to miss it.

All of the LIFE founders will be in attendance and the place will be electric. We are headed for our best year ever and the LIFE founders are making it even better. We are going to announce and explain some new incentives and rewards rolled into the LIFE compensation plan along with a new program to improve your mental fitness and challenge you and your team to work together for a common reward!

Get yourself and your team to Ohio, it will be a weekend you will never forget!

God bless, Dan Hawkins

Chris Brady, Tim Marks, and LIFE: Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

Posted by Orrin Woodward on April 4, 2012

As I sat at my desk this Easter season morning, my eyes spanned across the beautiful St. Lucie Bay while I reflected on the life I have been blessed to live. Here are just a few of my thankful thoughts:

1. I am married to an amazing Christian wife Laurie Woodward who has consistently loved me through years of growth and change. Add on the fact that she has mothered four super teenagers, and I cannot imagine a better family life scenario.

2. I am in business with my best friends – Chris BradyTim MarksGeorge GuzzardoClaude HamiltonBill LewisDan Hawkins, and Rob Hallstrand – who are not only great encouragers, but also wise and highly skilled businessmen. For instance, Tim Marks’s wisdom is packed full in his new book Voyage of a Viking being released this month, and it will be a blessing to so many who are in the process of changing their scripts.

3. The LIFE community is prospering at a faster rate than at any time in my 18 years of community building. Our community numbers at seminars across North America have increased over 5,000 people since the November 1, 2011 launch, just missing 20,000 people in attendance at the March seminars. That’s nearly double the numbers from one year ago! The community has grown over a 1,000 people at events each month since the launch of LIFE.

4. I have watched many business partners experience some tough financial challenges because they stood on principles. Thankfully, they endured, got back up, dusted themselves off, and ran again to freedom. Many, in fact, are making more money today than at any previous time in business. Everybody gets knocked down in life, but like I have said for years, “Those who stay will be champions.”

5. The LIFE Business Compensation Plan is rewarding people at unprecedented levels. With 95 percent of the people receiving a check monthly, LIFE is fair, equitable, and affordable to even the most strained of pocketbooks. LIFE is about receiving an opportunity, not a handout. One must work to win at anything, but the goal of the LIFE founders was to ensure that real work receives real rewards quickly.

6. LIFE is rapidly closing in on 4,000 customers! That’s 4,000 people choosing to purchase LIFE materials with no thought of further compensation. The LIFE founders studied the industry and refused to move forward unless they had a product that was in-demand at the retail price in the marketplace. With almost a 1,000 new customers a month, I think the task was accomplished.

7. LIFE, because the value proposition for customers is correct, has grown its member base accordingly. For example, if a customer loves the product and loves the community he is associating with, it’s only natural that, at a future date, he may choose to become a member of the compensated community. The added benefits of being a member (world-class compensation and business training) make this move a no-brainer for any person looking for financial rewards.

8. At the Major coming up in Columbus, LIFE is going to unveil Phase II, including the personalized websites for online customer and member signups, details to challenge your mental fitness, and improved community bonding with our leadership materials. Leadership is the application of proper knowledge. LIFE provides the knowledge, and the community provides the environment for application.

Ok, enough of my ruminations. What are you thinking about this morning? I cannot wait to share more details at the Columbus Major. I will see you there as we celebrate the achievers and implement Phase II of our vision to reach one million people.

Sincerely,

Orrin Woodward

Steve and Kelli Sager are moving on in LIFE using the-team.biz system!  This couple was highlighted on my blog just a few months ago for hitting turbo 25, now they have just achieved the turbo 50 level!(Two groups of people of at least 50 each attending a monthly seminar) More than doubling their numbers in a couple month period and helping many other go turbo 10 in the process. We are blessed to have Steve and Kelli as one of the leaders on Team STEALTH! Here is a great article from Steve Leurquin sharing this couples story.

God bless,

LIFE Success Story

15032012

Steve and Kelli Sager were introduced to LIFE several years ago and were skeptical. Although they didn’t know it, they were not skeptical to whatLIFE offered them, they were unhappy“living the dream” and having no results to show for it. Working hard their whole lives, Steve as a police officer and Kelli a factory worker, they were hounded with debt, time starved, and relationship stressed and were feeling there had to be more to life.

Looking for a better way to make ends meet Steve started to explore other options like going into real estate. During that same time he was introduced to Life-Team through a friend, meeting Gary Severson and although skeptical, the information spoke too much truth. “I was tired of hitting my head against a brick and found this was a good way to stop the pain” Steve said.

Having no security in their jobs, they were living pay check to pay check and just could not get ahead in the drowning pool of debt. Steve and Kelli thought they had done everything they were supposed to do and yet they found themselves stressed out with life.

Using the Team system of success principles they began to leverage their discretionary time to building their business to the first of many notable levels. This past weekend Steve and Kelli celebrated a huge level in Life-Team. They are now being rewarded for their determination, courage, and their tireless effort to helping others. Financially they have witled down a 6+ debt figure to almost nonexhistent and they are putting some final things in place for Kelli’s freedom day! When I asked Steve about other victories they have attained through LIFE he was quick to point their better marriage, coming to faith, and their much improved relationship with their kids.

They are now leading a large community. With their constant learning to grow in the8F’s, many people now come to them for help because they see so much strength in areas that used to be weaknesses.

In a world were many are complaining about their situations but not willing to do anything about it, we solute Steve and Kelli for creating a path for others to follow. Rather than living a life of existence, they are now living a life of purpose.

Enjoy the journey, Steve Leurquin
