“Try not to be a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.” – Albert Einstein
We are in the business of improving lives. We are in SFF to spread the noble advocacy of improving the health and financial status of our fellowmen. For some of us, improving lives might be an incredibly lofty goal: Trying to improve other people’s lifestyles might be an impossible task, and it may even unrealistic if our own lives were not really changed or improved.
I admit that it is very hard to change people; however, it doesn’t mean that it is impossible. I like what Dan Pearce said: “If you want to change the world, first change yourself. Then tell others how you did it. Never demand that people change. Inspire them to change using your own change as an example instead.”
These are two major objectives we should have to enable us to help people to improve their lifestyle: Help people to improve their health. Before we can help others, we have to help ourselves first. To improve our health, SFF recommends the SFF Wellness Management System:
Nutrition – eat food with complete and balanced nutrients, providing complete nutrition daily. Complete nutrition can be found primarily in our Spirulina Filipina: The only “Superfood” recognized by the World Health Organization as having the complete and balanced nutrients to keep our bodies healthy.
Absorption of Nutrients – We have to make sure that the food that we eat would be absorbed by our body; so do not forget to take your Spiruzyme D: a potent product for the absorption and conversion of macro-nutrients into micro-nutrients.
Body System Maintenance – Our bodies are similar to machines; for instance, like a car engine that needs to be maintained once a month. There are so many health factors and health risks that we are exposed to that unnoticeably weaken our body. More often than not, these health risks that we are exposed to do not manifest any signs and symptoms indicating any immediate damage to our bodies. If we are not incorporating any health preventive measures, health problems will just surprisingly pop up, sometimes in critical stages. Hence, we advise every SFF advocate to take our systems maintenance products to prevent diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, gastro-intestinal diseases, respiratory problems.
To become healthy we need to have holistic approach. In addition, I suggest you consider adding the following as well, as you apply our SFF Wellness Management System:
Exercise – Having regular physical activity will make a lot of difference in optimizing bodily functions, as well as coping with sickness. In my personal experience, having a daily 7- minute physical exercise activity improved my stamina and energy, enabling me to perform better in all aspects of my daily life.
Enough fluid intake – Our body is composed of 70% fluids. A recommendation of 8-10 glasses per day will help improve internal and external body processes.
Sleep/Rest – Due to toxic daily activities, we often sleep late and have no time to rest. To keep our body competitive and in good shape, we need to have enough sleep and rest. It is during sleep and rest that our body repairs and builds muscles and tissues.
Keep away from negative people – To keep a positive outlook and stay focused on our goals, we have to avoid negative people who will greatly hold us back in our efforts to reach our greatest potential.
Keep your Faith in God – No matter how hard we try to become better in order to reach our goals, we sometimes end up encountering temporary failures. These failures are just trials and are overcome with a solid faith and trust in God that things will get better soon; and that those failures are spices in life for us to appreciate the good success prepared for us.
You need to be healthy first before you can help others to become healthy. You cannot do the business if you are not healthy. Mentor people to improve their finances.
The same premise holds true in helping others to become healthy: first, we need to earn in SFF before we can mentor others to improve their finances. Our marketing plan is designed for us to earn through sharing our stories.
This is how we do it in SFF:
Add value to others – In doing this business, we are not paid because of the number of hours we spend in a day. We are paid for the value we made to others. Hence, our intention is not to sell products to them, rather, to show them how our products will benefit them. Then, if they buy products or packages from you,it doesn’t mean you already assured of a steady income. Remember, a person who buys once is not a customer. A customer is the one who repurchases the products, becomes loyal customer and then becomes an advocate of the products. Before they become advocates, we need to know them well, their health needs, their preferences and make sure we lead them to the right products that will answer their needs. In short, nurture them; create a valuable relationship with them.
Create at least 100 customers in 90-days –This is one of your major goals as you start your business in SFF. Imagine if you can share your story about the products to others and 30 people buy 1 box each of Spirulina Filipina in a month: You will earn Php7, 530.00. It is even better if they buy a package each where you will earn over Php30,000.00 in just one month and more than Php100,000 in 90 days!
Help your 10 members to sell to at least 30 people in 90 days – You have to be intentional on this. Commit to be with 10 new members in their initial presentations for their first 30 days in SFF. If you can help them earn fast, it will create a momentum and before you know it, they will become part of your sales team, delivering passive income for you.
Conduct regular meetings of product and marketing plan presentations every week – Having regular meetings with your team members will keep them connected with you and with the company and also facilitate updates on the products. The more they attend your trainings, the more they can memorize and put into heart the presentations and, as they get better with these skills, your business will grow bigger and bigger.
I am excited to see more and more SFF advocates doing the above suggestions. It is my ultimate goal to help each one of you to become successful and really receive the rewards of giving your valuable time to the organization. Just always remember to love yourself first, become healthy, make your family healthy, and help others to become healthy.
Your success is the success of SFF!
Enjoy the process.
