A few months ago the top coach in the company, Lindsay Matway, announced that she was going to do a presentation at Summit. I was stoked and bought my ticket right away. I was hoping to learn some tips on how to grow my business and how to help my challengers in challenge groups. That was my hope. And as the days approached, and something that seemed even cooler (meeting celebrity coaches in a private meeting with my way way upline, Chalene Johnson's sister Jenelle) I thought about jumping ship. I didn't need to hear from Lindsay- I would hopefully learn that all Summit! I just wanted my picture with the trainers!
But something told me to stay. Go to the Shine presentation and learn. So I did. It was the first day of Summit, Thursday, and those 4 hours changed my life.
Here's a preface to this story. I didn't grow up religious. I don't want to get into anything about that, but I grew up without faith. My parents didn't believe so we didn't go to church. As a teen I had some awesome friends who took me to their church, and helped me understand, but I still didn't feel like I believed.
So back to the presentation. Coaches from the top of the company, top 25 of 190,000, came out and told their story. They gave tips on how to succeed, self belief being the top one. They encouraged us to dig deep into our lives and really commit to the mission of helping people change their lives. And person after person after person had one thing in common. God.
And at the end of all the speakers, and all the tears had drained from my body unceremoniously from my eyeballs, this video came on.
