If your work isn't fun, you're not doing it right

It's also possible that you're in the wrong line of work.

Great achievements, along with virtues such as humility, often come from a child-like sense of curiosity, play, lack of fear and innocence. 

In other words, success is a result of not being afraid to have fun in whatever it is that you do.  You'd be surprised at what an un-cluttered mind can accomplish. 

Here are a few examples of what I mean:

Mozart found his passion when he finally escaped the adulthood of a steady job in Salzburg, for the virility of Vienna.  There, he wrote and commanded operas, orchestras, singers and actors.  Though known for his playfulness, and sometimes child-like behavior, he created Don Giovanni, the opera that changed every piece of music that ever came after.

Marie Curie found her passion, like so many of us, by playing with things she encountered in nature - like rocks.  Why did some rocks seem to be like the sun (with their own source of light), when all else around them was pitch dark?  Like a child, she held them in her hand, looked hard at them and even threw them.  In other words, she studied them with playful curiosity.

Mick Jagger had no musical talent at all but would collect blues records from America.  He and his childhood friend, Keith Richards, would lie around listening to them.  When his parents sent him off to study at the London School of Economics, he was still listening to those records and scribbling down lyrics rather than paying attention to concepts like 'supply and demand'.

Mary Shelley wondered what it would be like if a machine had intelligence. She day-dreamed about it.  She called her machine the Frankenstein monster and made up stories about how people would treat such a hybrid human/machine.

The moral of the story:  Don't over-think things and truly enjoy what you do.

The second major leadership position in Organo Gold is the 'Ruby' level

Why do you want to get Ruby done?

When you do, you have really and truly arrived.  The Sapphire level was (and is) great, but Ruby is much better.

Here's why:

1) You get paid 7 different ways!

2) Your sales volume matches that of the average Starbucks but you won't have their hours, their overhead, or their headaches!

3) You're looking at the very real possibility of never having to work for someone else EVER again.

4) In North America, you get your Mercedes Payment made by Organo Gold - and you get to pick a new one at Ruby!

5) You get paid on EVERY single cup of Organo Gold coffee (and tea) that is re-ordered throughout the world!  It's called 'profit sharing', and every Ruby is a part of that.

6) You get to impact a whole lot of lives!

Leaders do very well with OG because the company wants to reward people who make decisions quickly and act on those decisions.  Those rewards show that they are committed to your success.  Those are definitely the type of people I want to work with and who will get the best results from this program.

Is it a lot of hard work to become a Ruby?  'Hard' vs 'Easy' is different for everybody.  What it does take is plenty of action.

Just remember this:  One day, when wealth no longer matters to you, you’ll realize that what was important in life was the people that you met, knew, and loved, and the experiences that you had with others.  It won’t be about the wealth you created while working long hours on your own.  It will be about the legacy you leave in the people that you loved and helped.

Ganoderma is becoming even more popular

China is still a communist country, but they're figuring out that when nobody (except the government) owns anything, then nobody cares about anything.  That's why it's good to hear that they've enacted better land-use policies.

It's interesting that one of the best-paying crops is the 'King of Herbs' - Ganoderma.  The Chinese have held it in high regard for over 1,000 years and all Organo Gold products are infused with it.  In fact, we call it 'The Treasure of the Earth'.

Since Organo Gold coffee and tea is sold all over the world, and the processing plant is in China, it creates an outstanding and profitable market for this cultivated herb.  That's good for everyone who enjoys its benefits, it's good for farmers and it's good for the forests.

Jim Rohn's 'Ant Philosophy'

The late Jim Rohn is one of my heroes.  He was excellent at everything he did, and what he did was tell stories.  They're short and worth reading.  I've always like this one: 

"Over the years I've been teaching kids about a simple but powerful concept - the ant philosophy.  I think everybody should study ants. They have an amazing four-part philosophy, and here is the first part: ants never quit

That's a good philosophy. If they're headed somewhere and you try to stop them, they'll look for another way. They'll climb over, they'll climb under, they'll climb around. They keep looking for another way. What a neat philosophy, to never quit looking for a way to get where you're supposed to go.

Second, ants think winter all summer. That's an important perspective. You can't be so naive as to think summer will last forever. So ants gather their winter food in the middle of summer.

The third part of the ant philosophy is that ants think summer all winter. That is so important. During the winter, ants remind themselves, “This won't last long; we'll soon be out of here.” And the first warm day, the ants are out. If it turns cold again, they'll dive back down, but then they come out the first warm day. They can't wait to get out.

And here's the last part of the ant philosophy. How much will an ant gather during the summer to prepare for the winter? All he possibly can. What an incredible philosophy, the “all–you–possibly–can” philosophy.

Wow, what a great philosophy to have - the ant philosophy. Never give up, look ahead, stay positive and do all you can."  ~Jim Rohn

Is Organo Gold really a simple business?

Of course.  Think about what it is:  Coffee and Tea. 

That's it.

I don't think it gets much more simple than that.  Of course lots of people 'make' it more complicated than it needs to be by ignoring the training, not following the Four Steps, doing it 'their way' and thinking about way too many things.

Over-thinking this is the real killer.

The company's slogan is, "It's Easy, It's Simple, It's Coffee."  That pretty much says it all, doesn't it?

Is Organo Gold coffee healthy? (Part 3)

Yes.  We've covered this.  Ganoderma is an amazing thing, but drinking coffee (overall) seems to be a good idea.  It's certainly not a bad one.  Now why is that - like, with caffeine and stuff?

Let's ask a medical doctor...

It may seem counterintuitive:
A substance known to increase blood pressure might actually be good for the cardiovascular system. Caffeine consumption can cause a short-lived increase in blood pressure, and regular use has been linked to a longer-term increase. However, when caffeine is ingested via coffee, enduring blood pressure elevations are small and cardiovascular risks may be balanced by protective properties.

Coffee beans contain antioxidant compounds that reduce oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and coffee consumption has been associated with reduced concentrations of inflammatory markers.  Moderate coffee intake is associated with a lower risk for coronary heart disease as far out as 10 years, and data suggest that an average of two cups per day protects against heart failure.  Finally, a study presented during a poster session at the Heart Rhythm Society 2015 Scientific Sessions counters the long-held dogma that patients with arrhythmias should avoid caffeine, finding no association between the compound and premature atrial or ventricular contractions. Medscape contributor Dr John Mandrola recently wrote, "This abstract changes my practice. And here we have a medical reversal that is cause for celebration."

Is Organo Gold coffee healthy? (Part 2)

Of course it is.  It's infused with tasteless/odorless Ganoderma (i.e. the 'King of Herbs), and that's good for your system.  But more than that, medical science is discovering that drinking coffee has measurable health benefits.

A 2012 study of over 400,000 people, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, reported that coffee consumption is associated with a 10% reduction in all-cause mortality at 13-year follow-up. A large meta-analysis published in the American Journal of Epidemiology in 2014 also reported significant reductions in all-cause as well as CVD-related mortality associated with consuming three to four cups of coffee per day.

It's important to note that much of the evidence on the potential health effects of coffee, caffeine, and other foods and nutrients is associational and doesn't prove causality - observational investigations come with limitations and often rely on error-prone methods such as patient questionnaires.

However, the sheer volume of existing observational data linking coffee and/or caffeine with various health benefits - as well as, in many cases, evidence of a dose response - suggests that the most widely consumed stimulant in the world has positive influences on our health.
