Tribe Christmas Email
First off, Merry Christmas (and if you are not celebrating - Happy Holidays)!!!
This is always such a joyous time of year because it gives us a chance to reflect on everything we are grateful for while spending and enjoying the company of the people we love so dearly.
It is also filled with laughter and excitement (especially if you have kids) because of the anticipation of what Santa Claus is going to deliver!
For our office, we decided that we wanted to use this time as an opportunity to think about what we learned this past year.
Here are the 5 Most Important Lessons We Learned in 2014:
1.) HEALTH - "When you have your health you have 1,000 dreams, and when you don't you have one." - Proverb
We have always known that at the foundation of everything is your health, but when we were introduced to this quote, it further reinforced how critical this area of your life is if your desire is to reach your full potential. Think about it like this - have you ever had a headache? When your head was throbbing were you able to think about all of your aspirations and dreams OR were you only thinking about getting your health back? The answer is clear and this is a simplified version of why your health is your absolute most precious asset and it is the reason we exist - to help you reclaim your health and live with vitality!
2.) HAPPINESS - "Happiness depends upon/on ourselves." - Aristotle
We have found that many people often look outside of themselves for happiness and they allow their current circumstances to interfere with their ability to truly smile. We share this because all of us have been there before, but this year really helped our entire team recognize that happiness does not come to us, but rather it comes from us and this shift has meant all the difference.
3.) CHANGE - "We must either find a way or make one." - Hannibal
This lesson was very interesting for our entire team because there have been plenty of times that we have hit roadblocks and just stood there together looking at this barricade. This is often where most people stop and they say, "I suppose this is life." This lesson was huge for us because it gave us the permission to keep on keeping on and to find a new way or to create our own path in the direction of our dreams.
4.) LOVE - "Where there is love there is is life." - Mahatma Gandhi
This might be obvious, but this time of year has been filled with an abundance of love in our lives and we want to make sure that you recognize the importance of this emotion. In a world where this is an unfortunate amount of negativity, it is so essential to connect to the core of what really matters, and at the nucleus of everything is LOVE.
5.) PASSION - "Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the starts to change the world." - Harriet Tubman
This lesson had our entire team really excited on a daily basis as we were able to fully deploy this lesson because we absolutely love every minute of what we do when we are able to serve the health and the vitality of our community. When you operate from a place of passion, miracles are born, opportunities then emerge, and dreams become your reality.
These are the FIVE MOST IMPORTANT LESSONS WE LEARNED IN 2014 and it is such an honor to share these insights with you. Our hope and our desire is that this message becomes a reminder for you and for all of the people you care about most because when these lessons permeate into your life - everything becomes possible!
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Thank You for being part of our world!
