Summer Thoughts and Growth

Posted by Orrin Woodward on September 1, 2010

As the Woodward family headed back to Florida, I had plenty of time to
think about life, business, and success.  Several key points kept coming
back to my mind and I felt that they were worthy to be shared with
all.  I haven’t written on my blog much this summer as I was actively building and helping other people build their businesses.  I will share more thoughts at the upcoming Majors, but here is a sneak

First, this summer Laurie and I came back to Michigan with a specific
intent to dream more, work more, and produce more results than any other
summer.  With at least 8 new Round Table members in the last 90 days, I would
say it has been a smashing success. 🙂  I have never been prouder of the
TEAM as I witnessed many leaders jump back in the pool and start the
current flowing again.  One of the keys to growth is to shut down all
negative inputs and replacing with CD’s, Books, and Seminars.  If that
means, shutting off your TV, getting off FaceBook, stop associating with
negative people (even if that’s someone on the TEAM), etc, then so be
it.  I have never met a successful person that wasn’t willing to
sacrifice short term pleasure for long term results.  Numbers and volume
are growing because leaders are dreaming and doing again.

Second, one of the principles that has helped Laurie and I achieve in
life is to get going where you are at.  So many people are waiting for
their circumstances to change before they make their run.  There will
always be circumstances, there will always be problems in business, that
is why they pay leaders so much, because they solve problems.  Leaders
are problem solvers and non-leaders are problem creators.  Laurie and I
decided early on to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.

Third, Dallin Larsen has been such a positive influence in my life.
Being mentored in business by the entrepreneur of the year is not a bad
deal. 🙂  Our relationship has allowed both of us to speak freely where
we see we can improve our businesses and this has created an environment
of trust and unity.  No networking company has a better relationship
with its top field leaders than Dallin does with the TEAM leaders.  The
future is bright because Dallin recognizes the power of community and is
actively encouraging us to focus more on leading people to truth in all
areas through community building.  I love the products, but I know
communities move products, products do not move communities.

Fourth, the PC leaders have committed to work harder than any group on
the TEAM until the current is going so fast that anyone with a dream
will achieve more here than anywhere else.  That is our specific
intent.  Entrepreneurs have many choices on what to do with their time
and money, we want Team to be their best choice because of our community
and the super products offered by Dallin with a world class compensation plan.  The TEAM is rolling and we
are now about to take our business to the next level.  Get a dream, get
going, and get free!

When historians look back at this time in the world’s history, it will
be easy for them to see gloom and doom, but there is a glimmer of hope
on the horizon, a group of men and women who have had enough of
negativity, a group that has vowed to make a difference, a group that
cares enough to get involved, a community called TEAM that is Having Fun, Making Money and Making a Difference! God Bless, Orrin Woodward
