Vision and Integrity
In life, the important thing is not to go fast, but to go far.
In our lives, with our ACN businesses, we have to constantly make decisions. Each decision, whether good or bad, changes the course of our life; the importance of making the right decision is paramount. Unfortunately, human beings are often conditioned to seek immediate gratification rather than long-term happiness; this does not often lead us to the right decision.
There are two key elements that can help us come to the right decisions, regardless of the circumstances, and that is to have VISION and INTEGRITY!
The vision consists of what we want to build with ACN, but also and especially the vision of the person we want to become. Vision is to see what does not yet exist. Any company, project or relationship will ultimately perish if there is no vision.
Take the time today to define, by writing down, the vision you have for your professional and financial goals with ACN but especially the vision that you have for your own personal future.
What kind of person do you hope to become? This vision, ingrained in you, will help guide you to make the right decisions.
The second important element is to have integrity.
There are over 7 billion people on this earth. The everyday challenges and difficulties of life mean that most people compromise their values and integrity by making excuses that are often deemed acceptable to the situation, as a means of justifying it to themselves. But the fact remains: the majority of people on this planet do not have the life they desire for themselves. Is this a coincidence? It could be, but perhaps not.
Think about this: What would happen if, individually, we each made a firm decision to demand 100% integrity from ourselves in every situation, without exception?
This could prove to be difficult at times, however, if you get to that point, you would reach a stage where you would be in a class of your own. Furthermore, on this path, one acquires all the tools, credibility and personal development needed to excel with ACN, and, most importantly, how to achieve the life that you envisioned for yourself.
