Complementary Health Care

There are a lot of terms thrown around to describe healthcare approaches; western medicine, eastern medicine, traditional medicine, alternative medicine, integrated care, and so on.  Often these phrases mean different things to different people.  So what do we mean when we say, “Complementary Health Care?”  We believe in taking a holistic approach to good health; combining modern medicine, proper nutrition, physical exercises, mental exercises, relaxation techniques, and a good night’s sleep to help you feel great and be your best, every day.  We suggest pursuing the whole shebang.

Aspects of Complementary Health Care

Nutrition

Nutrition is a massive component of good health, and there are many, many facets.  Rather than going into all of them, I’ve selected just a few of the more important or more popular.

Diet

A diet isn’t how you lose weight; it’s everything you eat every day.  While you can lose weight on any diet, a truly healthy diet is one filled with a wide variety of foods.  You should eat colorful vegetables, fresh fruits, legumes, lean proteins, and unsaturated fats while avoiding saturated fats, having little to no raw sugar or “white carbs,” and an abundance of wonderfully flavorful fresh herbs.  Don’t think weird, green smoothies with a bitter aftertaste.  Think five-star meals you can make at home for less than you spend on unhealthy fast foods.  I could write an entire article on how to maintain a healthy and delicious diet, but I’ve already done that.  A few times.  So let’s move on.

Natural Products

The problem with terms like “natural products” and “organic products” is that they’re marketing slogans that are so well known that they’ve shaped how we think of food.  There is no single set of standards to qualify something as organic, and certifying authorities differ on what they consider genetically modified, or whether they’ll allow seeds that are sprayed with pesticides to be called pesticide free after they’ve grown into plants.  While eating organic isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it’s better to know what you want that word to mean, and to find food sources that meet your needs.  Whether you prefer cage free, locally sourced, non-GMO, sustainable, or all of the above is up to you.  It takes some effort to figure out which companies you trust, but it can be very satisfying once you do.

Supplementation

The key to proper supplementation, other than using VitaMist, of course, is to determine ahead of time what your body needs.  Have you had your vitamin D levels tested?  Are you at an age where your body doesn’t produce enough intrinsic factor to absorb B12 properly?  Are you on a diet that lacks in specific nutrients, or are you concerned with the depletion of minerals in the soil?  Figure out what your body needs before overwhelming yourself with the variety of options out there.  It never hurts to get some free nutritional training, too!

Exercise

The dreaded E word.  While it might make you cringe, there’s no denying its amazing benefits.  I’ve always been fond of the phrase, “Eat well to feel good and manage your weight.  Exercise to feel great and live longer.”  The older we get, the more the walls of our heart stiffen, causing the cardiac diseases that are so prevalent today.  Exercising helps keep your heart flexible and robust.

Walking

The best way to treat your heart well is to get that pulse elevated for at least 30 minutes per day.  It may seem daunting, but the first step is straightforward.  Just take your first step straight forward.  Then another.  Then other.  Throw on your favorite music, and go for a walk.  Walk for 15 minutes, then turn around and go home.  If you prefer a change of scenery, there are a lot of free walking apps from companies like Under Armor that will map a path for you to take.  As you get more adjusted to walking long distances, you can even step it up to jogging, swimming, or biking.  Your heart will love you for it, and you’ll cherish your freshly invigorated metabolism.

Weight Training

I was about including something non-threatening here, like taking up dancing or playing a sport with friends, but I don’t touch on the benefits of weight training enough.  For starters, it’s another exceptional way to get that heart pumping.  That’s enough to earn it an A in my book, but it also helps you maintain your weight.  The more muscle you have, the more calories your body will burn naturally.  Musculature also uses your circulatory system more efficiently than fat, so your heart doesn’t work as hard when you’re relaxing.  Then there’s the obvious benefit of being able to pick things up that you couldn’t before.  A handy talent to acquire.  When it comes to weight training, you should start off light.  Set a goal of how many sets you want to do, and how many repetitions in each set.  Then pick a weight that lets you get to that goal, while still feeling like you accomplished something.  Don’t try to overdo it!  Even light weight training is very good for you, and it avoids injury or that feeling that you can’t get out of bed the next day.

Yoga

Yoga is a trend that’s not going away, and for very valid reasons.  Recent studies have shown that it doesn’t provide the same heart benefits as strenuous exercise.  However, it’s still a great way to build your core muscle strength, improve your flexibility, reduce injuries, and to center yourself.  That last point makes it a great segue into our next section of the Mind.

Mind

Not understanding your brain can be one of the most significant impediments to good health.  There are many issues that require the guiding hand of a good psychologist or psychiatrist.  Though even if you don’t have mental health concerns, or in addition to these traditional routes, the benefits of mindfulness are far more numerous than you know.

NLP/Hypnosis

Two different practices that I’m squeezing into a single section.  NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and it combines what we know of neurology, language, and programming to help you reprogram yourself to behave in a way that’s more beneficial to you.  Hypnosis has similar goals, but rather than reframing and reprogramming through language, it uses guided relaxation and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness, sometimes called a trance.  Both techniques provide an entryway to your subconscious, to help change you on a behavioral level.  The best part is that you get to set your goals and what you want to get out of a session.  The therapist is just there to help guide you.

Meditation

Meditation is a mindfulness exercises that will help you to relax, reduce stress, gain energy, break a habit, forge new habits, build confidence, I could go on, but this sentence would turn into a paragraph or two.  Meditation is something that you can do just about anywhere, to achieve a variety of results.  If you are interested, there are a lot of apps for your phone that will provide free training on how to meditate.  To get more than the basics, you typically have to pay, but the basics alone are a sturdy foundation that will help you in nearly every aspect of your life.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy has a tremendous array of benefits, many of which are physical, but I’m focusing here on improving your mental health.  Stress is a leading cause of disease, whether it be infectious, heart disease, sleep disorders, high blood pressure or any number of stress-related issues.  Few things age us faster than stress, either internally or externally.  Sadly, it is not possible to eliminate stress from our lives, but massage therapy can help manage it. Reduced pressure leads to decreased anxiety, improving your mood and overall outlook.  It enhances sleep in both quantity and quality, providing you with higher energy, a clearer head, improved concentration and reduced fatigue.  Reducing your stress also helps to improve circulation and lower blood pressure. Many even claim they receive a sense of perspective and clarity after a massage. The emotional balance it provides is just as valuable as the physical benefits.

Medicine

No matter how much you pursue good health, there will come a time when you are unwell.  There are many, many options to choose from when this happens.

Herbal Remedies

Herbalism is a traditional medicinal practice that uses plants and extracts as remedies.  It goes by many names, such as medical herbalism, herbal medicine, botanical medicine, herbology, and phytotherapy. Herbalism occasionally extends to other natural products such as bee byproducts, fungus, minerals, shells, and even animal parts.

Often touted as having a long history of use, herbalism has undoubtedly been around for a while, but this long history is not always the grand selling point that people imagine.  It’s important to remember that the materials used in herbalism contain a vast variety of chemicals, not all of which are healthy, and many of which have competing effects.  An herb is not safe or effective just because it has been used for centuries.  People once though bathing was unhealthy or that dangerous substances like mercury could cure disease after all.

However, many botanicals have been studied extensively by scientists.  While a lot have been debunked or disproved, some have been shown to have health benefits in clinical studies.  The rich tradition, combined with scientific research is something that should boost your confidence.

Do not always trust what you read on Facebook or a blog.  Do a little research for yourself on the botanicals you wish to incorporate, and even ask the opinion of your doctor.  You may be able to find some fantastic complementary therapies and improve your overall health.

Osteopathy

Osteopathy has some dubious roots, but today it has grown into a fully accredited health care profession with requirements on par with those of a medical doctor.  In fact, schools that grant the title Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) are, in essence, just medical schools with the addition of topics such as physical manipulation to promote good health.  If you choose an osteopath as a physician, you will often find that the only real difference between visiting a DO instead of an MD is that a DO may be more likely to have researched complementary healthcare practices than most MDs have.  I must warn you that there has been a notably higher rate of DOs promoting potentially dangerous health care practices than MDs, but this why it’s important to research your local healthcare providers before choosing one that suits you

Western Medicine

But isn’t this supposed to be an article about alternative medicine?  Nope.  This article is all about taking a complementary healthcare approach.  There is a tendency to think poorly about western medicine in certain circles, the supplement industry being one of those circles.  We here at VitaMist believe that waiting until you’re sick to address your health is a poor choice, but that doesn’t mean that western medicine doesn’t have any answers for you.  In fact, it’s backed by years of research bent on finding answers to those questions.  While much of that research was paid for by the pharmaceutical industry and companies looking to turn a profit, it’s easy to forget that your local doctor is not a greedy corporation.  They went to school to learn about how the body works, how to test it for disease and injury, and how to fix or alleviate those issues.  Your local doctor spent the better part of a decade (even without including continuing education) learning these things because they wanted to help people.  If your doctor doesn’t always have the best bedside manner, don’t let your opinion of their personality discolor your evaluation of their talent.  It can be hard to learn social skills when you’ve got all those books to memorize!  So the next time you’re wondering if your physician is secretly a robot or lizard person, remind yourself that they are trying to help you, and it’s absolutely OK to ask questions!

Other Complementary Health Approaches

There are far too many other complementary healthcare options to list here, from traditional Chinese medicine to homeopathy, acupuncture to chiropractic manipulation.  (Unfortunately) There’s no single correct answer.  Your body is not mine or the next person’s, and your life experiences are vastly different.  I can’t tell you which health approach is exactly right for you, but if you’re interested in knowing more, you can contact me at [email protected]  I might even make my next article a topic you ask about in your email.

Lastly, and most importantly, tell all your health care providers about your complementary health approach.  It’s not complimenting your health care routine if you’re not on the same page as your doctor, and many alternative methods can interfere with your medications and treatments.  Give everybody involved in your health care all of the details on what you’re doing to stay healthy.  Doing so will help ensure coordinated and safe care.

How to Create Rapport with Anyone in Seconds

To create a positive first impression, we need to know how to connect immediately with others regardless of their age, gender, ethnic background, mood, or the situation. How people perceive us during the first few seconds has a major influence on whether they will trust us, be attracted to us, or want to do business with us.

You know the power of first impressions. How people perceive us during the first few seconds of an encounter has a major influence on whether they will trust us, be attracted to us, or want to do business with us. To create a positive first impression, we need to know how to connect immediately with others regardless of their age, gender, ethnic background, mood, or the situation.

Let’s begin by testing your “first impression awareness.” What would you think of the waiter in the following situation? You’re having a business lunch with a potential client. She’s telling you about what she doesn’t like about her current supplier. You’re thinking, “This stuff is gold – please keep talking.” Suddenly, the waiter comes in and starts his canned speech, “My name’s Mike, I’ll be your waiter. And how are you today? Today’s specials are…”

Chances are, your first impression of the waiter would be negative. In fact, that waiter’s speech is a great example of what not to do when meeting someone for the first time. Ironically, he was probably doing just what he was told to do.

Unfortunately, most managers don’t provide competent training for their employees on how to establish rapport. Huge mistake – as we see in the waiter example. Instead, employees are given a script to read. Franchise operations love scripts. They think that this “systematic” approach to dealing with customers is their greatest strength – which is true. It’s also their greatest weakness.

The problem with the canned script approach is that the customer recognizes a script, senses that the employee has no genuine feeling or empathy with what the customer really needs, and therefore does not trust (or in the case of our waiter even like) the employee.

Instead of canned speeches, use a thirty second technique that generates trust, feelings of empathy, and makes people want to do business with you. Unfortunately, there’s been a lot of misleading information out there about this method. Let’s get the real story about how and why you can get such phenomenal results when you properly use technique known as mirroring.

The Mirroring Technique

Mirroring is based on the assumption that we tend to feel comfortable with people who communicate nonverbally the way we do. In other words, we are drawn to people when their body language (gestures, tone of voice, facial expressions, eye contact, dress, and so on) is similar to ours.

“Forget canned speeches. They have as much appeal as over-used pick-up lines in singles bars.”

By the same token, we tend to be “turned off “by people whose non verbal language is different than ours. For example, if you are engaged in a quiet conversation with a friend at a party, you will probably perceive the person who’s loud, boisterous voice bellows in the background, as being obnoxious.

The great news is we are in control of our non-verbal communication. So to create rapport with others instantly, we merely need to “mirror” their non-verbal communication. That means if the other person talks softly, then you talk more softy. If they lean forward, then you lean forward. If they talk quickly then you do the same. In other words, you ‘mirror’ the other person’s tone of voice and body language. The only exception is when they are angry. In that situation, you wouldn’t mirror anger; you’d instead mirror concern.

In the case of our waiter, if he’d been trained with the mirroring technique, he wouldn’t have started talking until his customers ceased their conversation and made eye contact with him. Then he would mirror the seriousness of the mood they conveyed, skip the opening canned speech, get directly to the point and ask something like, “Something to drink?” In this case his customers would have appreciated the waiter’s businesslike approach and felt good about their choice of restaurant.

There are a few things to keep in mind though when we use mirroring. First, mirroring does not mean “mimicking.” So, if the other person is sitting with arms folded across their chest, you may have yours crossed on your lap. Don’t mirror the person exactly; just similarly. That prevents people from thinking they’re being imitated.

It may come as a relief to know that you don’t have to mirror the other person for longer than a few moments. Once they become comfortable with you, you can actually start leading the nonverbal communication, and then they’ll start following you. So if you have a friend who’s tired or listless you need to start the conversation in a low slow manner. After a few minutes, you gradually pick up the tempo. Your friend will feel so comfortable with you; they’ll naturally do the same. This is great news particularly if you interact with lots of people.

Mirroring is easy and it works. When you use it properly, you’ll improve the impression you make on virtually anyone – regardless of his or her mood or the situation. You’ll also experience the personal satisfaction of making a stranger feel comfortable. That’s when you begin making truly important connections.

How to Use NLP in Social Media

To Grow your VitaMist Business

One of the most exciting discoveries in business communication and psychology in the past 30 years has been the development of a communication and rapport-building tool called Neurolinguistic Programming.

If you’re not familiar with NLP, here’s the quick thumbnail. NLP was developed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970s at the University of Santa Cruz in California. At the time, Bandler was studying for his master’s degree in information sciences and mathematics. Grinder was a professor of linguistics (language). The two discussed how some people are able to “get through to difficult people, and others can’t” and NLP was conceived. It examines the relationships between thought, communication, and behavior. One of the basic definitions of NLP that I like to use in my training is that it bridges communication gaps.

The core of NLP focuses on positive outcomes, body language and physiology, the words we use to communicate our experiences, and our mental programming. Top business leaders, politicians and athletes around the world use NLP to build trust and influence. They use it as an internal success tool to visualize positive results in advance. It’s fascinating.

OK, so where does Social Media play into this mix? Obviously you can’t read body language with written blog posts, texts, Tweets, LinkedIn group discussions or on Facebook walls. But the clues and cues to help you build relationships online, engage new people, and connect with your industry leaders and ideal clients are literally right in front of your face.

Here’s how it works. NLP focuses on our five senses, or learning modalities. The three main ones for communication are sight, sound, and feel. While we are dominant in one of these areas, there is always an overlap.

  • Visual – Most people are visual communicators. They learn by seeing and reading. They need to actually see how something is done in order to comprehend it. They use expressions like “Take a look at this” and “I get the picture.”
  • Auditory – Others learn by hearing. They can hear something explained once or twice and have full understanding. These are individuals who prefer audio books and are not couch potatoes who spend time with TV and movies. Auditory people tend to use phrases like “That’s music to my ears” and “That sounds good to me.”
  • Kinesthetic – These folks learn best through touch or feel. Artists and creative people are usually kinesthetic. They may say things like “I get the point” and “I feel comfortable with that plan.”

Think about what kind of communicator you are. If you are a visual communicator and have a face-to-face disagreement with a colleague who is auditory, you will clash. It’s as though you are speaking Spanish and he is speaking French. By listening closely, you can identify your colleague’s main modality and begin to use it in your conversation. You’ll soon be on the same page.

The goal of NLP is to bring people together by finding similarities instead of differences. It’s about positive outcomes and bridging communication gaps.

This holds true of the written/typed words in our Social Media activities. Consider these examples of phrases used online:

“I love this video”

“Google blurs the line…”

“Let’s touch base”

“Quick overview of”

“UN Chief sees corporate profit…”

“Best advice I’ve heard in a while”

“Looks exciting”

“The way it sounds to me…”

If your ideal client Tweets an article link and writes, “Best advice I’ve heard in a while”, he has dropped a clue (the word heard) that he may be an auditory learner. Take a quick minute to read his Profile or a blog post to discover more about his communication.

This is called doing your homework. You can then Re-tweet him and add “Sounds like a solution for marketing pro’s.” You can also try and engage him one-on-one with a similar auditory response. Another option is to send him a link to a podcast or Teleseminar (audio programs) on a related subject. Bringing the conversation off-line is the goal so you can continue to connect with him.

By being aware of other people’s modalities and shifting your communication to match theirs, you will build trust and a connection. People will feel comfortable with you because you are “like” them. In turn, they will “like” you. NLP calls this practice “modeling” or “mirroring.”

Even though Social Media and other technology often has us speaking in tongue or 140 characters, the basic clues of NLP and building rapport are present.

NLP is the subconscious tool of influence. Social Media is the vehicle to drive that influence.

Growing Your Self-Confidence One Step at a Time

“Take the first step, and your mind will mobilize all its forces to your aid. But the first essential is that you begin. Once the battle is startled, all that is within and without you will come to your assistance.” ~ Robert Collier

What does self-confidence mean to you? Is it the difference between just merely existing day-to-day or living the life you love? Does having low self-confidence mean that you spend more time worrying about what others thing of you, instead of how to get done what you need to do in order to have that dream life you want?

You do know that self-confidence can be learned right? No one is born with a “self-confidence gene” that I know of. (I’m sure some scientist will correct me if I’m wrong here.) What we are born with is a sense that everything is right in our world, and unfortunately it is that sense that gets eroded over time as we learn that things a) don’t always go our way, and b) others will work to undermine us in order to shore up their own confidence.

So if your confidence has taken a beating lately, what are you doing to grow it back?

Make your confidence a priority.

As someone who struggled with low self-confidence for most of my life, I can tell you that this is the most important thing you can do for yourself. No one else can do it for you, and you may find that others will feel threatened by your new self. But don’t let them stop you. You deserve to have that sense of self-worth and self-confidence, and no one else has the right to take that from you.
Here are a few ideas to get you started on the path to growing your self-confidence again:

Do at least one thing per day to build your confidence.

Find ways to incorporate building your confidence into everything you do — phone calls, connections on social media, going a little beyond the boundaries of the familiar can all help. This also helps you be more engaged not only with the people around you, but most importantly, with yourself!

Talk to yourself about your confidence.

Look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself, “I am a confident woman!” You are worth every bit of confidence and success you desire to have. But… until you believe this yourself, you will have trouble getting it and keeping it.
See yourself as the confident woman you are.

Use visualization techniques to see yourself confident and handling situations that would normally leave you feeling nervous and scared. Focus on what it will feel like to be that confident person you know you can be.

Keep a confidence journal.

Write down at least one thing you did every day that made you feel more confident. Keep track of your successes to remind yourself that you are already confident and that every time you act with confidence you are growing that feeling even more.

Get involved in social media.

Okay … I can hear you thinking, “she’s lost her mind” but hear me out for a minute. Social media sites can be a great starting point for growing your self-confidence because you can take small steps without having any face-to-face contact. So for the extremely shy and/or introverted person, using a site like Facebook can be a real confidence booster as you learn or re-learn how to interact with people.
I’ll tell you my story about social media and confidence another day. For now, if you want to connect with me, you can do so here: At VitaMistU.com

This may seem like a lot to think about, so I’ll leave you with one final tip.

Don’t be afraid to take a step back when you need to.

Sometimes stepping beyond the borders of the familiar can be overwhelming, so when you need alone time don’t hesitate to take it.
Being self-confident isn’t going to make you an extrovert if you’re not already one, and it doesn’t mean you have to immerse yourself in new situations every minute of the day. In fact, you need to take time out to care for yourself — because I’m betting you don’t do enough of that now — and to reflect on what you’ve already accomplished!

So… are you ready to take that first step?

Think Without Fear

Training your mind to think freedom without fear, to think potential, to think success is very similar to training your body for a sport. Athletes know pain is only temporary and potential must be seen in the mind’s eye.

Pain is typically easier to remember than pleasure – and the memory of past pain generates fear whenever you encounter a situation with the possibility to cause new pain. Thus you are guided by your fear to avoid painful situations rather than by your desire to enjoy pleasurable situations. This will lead to mental barriers and blockages that can be very difficult to climb.

Certain thoughts become capable of generating fear. That fear keeps people from thinking any further because they associate it with emotional or physical pain.

For you to break down the mental walls of perceived fear, you must give yourself permission to ask questions – questions that will break down your limiting beliefs of the past and help you think “outside the box.”  In essence, you must begin actively “asking questions” of your own thoughts, opinions and beliefs in a positive way. Your self-esteem and self-worth in large is based from your present belief systems. By conquering fear, you’ll have the confidence to take yourself to freedom and success!

Practice a technique I call AAA – Awareness-Acknowledgement-Action to create a positive breakthrough in your thinking. Breakthroughs begin with deep awareness and core acknowledgement. Action to increase potential will naturally follow.

As a success coach I teach students to “ask yourself questions in the direction you want your life to move.” Mind mastery is part of the journey. You must seek to remove fear – all journeys begin with that single step.

Your eventual reward will be an open and confident mind that stands strong against past and present fear because it is not afraid of the possibilities that free thought and life’s potential have to offer. And in the absence of fear, you will enjoy increased powers of perception, a high degree of self-confidence and self-trust, peace of mind and a mindset of success!

Is the journey worth it?
You decide.
A mindset of success begins with that question.

Build Bridges Into The Future

Imagine seeing yourself in that situation interacting with another person using new behaviors.

Simply allow yourself to see and hear that interaction.

Now step into yourself and experience what it will actually be like in reality. What will you see, hear and feel as you are interact with this person?

BUILD BRIDGES INTO THE FUTURE

What is the first thing you see or hear that will allow you to know it is appropriate to use the new behavior?

Run through the ‘New Behavior Generator’ steps above with a few more situations because doing this now will allow your unconscious to generalize the new behavior.

And to help you get into the habit of enriching your life more often I suggest you put a note on your calendar to practice techniques, like the one above, in say, seven days time.

To end this little article I’d like to present you with
another quote from ‘Frogs into Princes’ which sums up the enrichment approach nicely:

“When I was first doing coaching a man came in and said, ‘I want to have better relationships with people.’ I said, ‘Oh, so you have trouble relating to people?’ He said ‘No, I get along fine with people. I enjoy my relationships a lot. – I’d like to be able to do it even better.’”

PS: I use NLP as a major tool in creating my life success as it is a very useful and powerful self help technique. It is a self help skill that I recommend everyone should at least know the basics of – if they want any real success in their lives, that is one of reasons we will be training some of this at our VitaMist August Home Coming event here in Phoenix!

Sabotage

Cool sounding word, but if your VitaMist business is not growing as quickly as you want, have a look at yourself… as you may be the cause for the slow growth. NLP is a very simple but powerful tool to have in your self help skills toolbox that you should apply for yourself and also use as a MLM training tool for all your new MLM consultants. Read on:

“If you ask a hundred people ‘What would you like for yourself,’ ninety-nine will say ‘I want to stop doing X.’”

And continuing with an extract from the classic book,
‘Frogs into Princes’:

“There is an entirely different way to look at change, which we call the generative or enrichment approach.

Instead of looking for what’s wrong and fixing it, it’s possible simply to think of ways that your life could be enriched: ‘What would be fun to do, or interesting to be able to do?’

‘What new capacities or abilities could I invent for myself?’ ‘How can I make things really groovy?’”

YOUR WISH LIST

For the following exercise, rather than thinking of material goals, think instead about how you wish people would behave toward you?

Examples:
I wish people would be more friendly towards me.
How will you know when the wish is being fulfilled?
What will you be seeing, hearing  and feeling?
– Genuine smiles, friendly voices, eye contact.

Now for each wish ask yourself, ‘What’s important about
that?’

So for the first example, of people being more friendly, the importance of that could be; to feel safer.

And what’s important about feeling safer? – Inner Calm

What you are doing here of course is eliciting values. These are the values that you are motivated towards. You could ask the question again about the new value too and get a deeper value or is it a higher value? hmmm…

“BE THE CHANGE”

Wasn’t it Gandhi that said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

So pick one of the behaviors from your wish list. Now ask yourself, ‘Where could I practice this behavior and with whom?’

The Law of Attraction + NLP= MLM Success

I have been talking to a lot of people in VitaMist and I have run across some thinking about using the Law of Attraction to achieve MLM success. Most people involved in MLM struggle to see the Success they are looking for. It is not due to lack of effort however. So what can be the missing component? The answer just might be understanding The Law of Attraction and how your mind can hold you back.

However, most attempting to use the Law of Attraction to manifest their desires also struggle to no avail. This is where NLP (Nero-linguistic Programming) comes into play. Combining these three seemingly completely different disciplines is the foundation of my personal success.

Below I will share with you a strategy to achieve anything you desire. MLM Success? No problem. Financial Freedom? No problem. Self-employment, prosperity in economically challenging times?  No problem.  Prospecting? No problem.

The three areas of study that will help you achieve your dream of self-employment and MLM Success are…

MLM

Obviously you will need to get your hands on anything and everything relating to the business side of Network Marketing. In my opinion…

VitaMistU.com and the updates that our coming soon, will give you those resources you will need.

LAW OF ATTRACTION

A philosophy indicating that your experience and life circumstances are the result of your thoughts & feelings. Everything in your entire life is the effect of your energetic output. Like gravity, it is an immutable law of the universe. You attract your life experience by virtue of who you are.

NLP

Nero-linguistic programming is a personal development method of re-programming your mind using its natural system of information storage. Why is this important to us and why does it apply to MLM Success? Using NLP techniques you can rapidly attune yourself to attract whatever it is you are looking for. This will be given to you at the VitaMist Homecoming event in August.

 

See… The reason people struggle with the Law of Attraction is because you can’t just think your way to success. Well you can, but it will take years. The Law responds to your vibration, who you feel, who you are… If you want MLM Success it will only manifest after you are successful.

The Law of Attraction responds to who you truly fundamentally believe yourself to be. The problem is we only believe ourselves to be “successful” after we see the physical proof of success. The Universe will not manifest success until you first believe down to your core that you are successful.

You cannot manifest abundance until you feel abundant. You must resonate abundance to attract abundance. You must radiate abundance. Shine abundance…Yes…BEFORE you make any money, while heaped in debt, while struggling…you must feel ABUNDANT.

I think of it as the adolescent mindset. You remember…before you ever made your first dollar and you believed you could tackle the world! That is an abundant attitude!

NLP can assist you to quickly re-program yourself.  Yes, re-programming yourself at the most fundamental levels. This is why I recommend using NLP because it has been proven to work time after time to achieve MLM success. Your goal is clear! You know what you want.

After using NLP you will then need to understand the business and start taking the action steps towards success. However it will not manifest until you understand your own role in your Universe and how you can apply the Law of Attraction to your benefit. But understanding is not enough. You must then do the internal work.

Once you become an MLM success internally you will start taking action, a big secret of the Law of Attraction and you will become an MLM success externally.

The Law of Attraction is a powerful tool in your MLM success toolbox. When I first started out I played with it a little but before long it became more and more of my daily work. Now it is a natural part of my life and work so I decided to share my understanding with you.

“ The Law of Attraction responds to who you truly fundamentally believe yourself to be. ”

I look forward to seeing you and working with you at the VitaMist Home Coming Event in August.
