It’s amazing to me how many people spend their lives settling for less than what they want or deserve because they are afraid to change course and venture into the unfamiliar. They let fear of change keep them stuck and unfulfilled. I was once one of these people until I realized that I would never have what my heart ached for unless I was willing to step out of all that was comfortable to me and listen to that voice inside that was screaming for me to move. It was time for a new beginning.
Here’s a perfect example of what I just don’t get. I was listening to a man speak about how much he hated the job that he had done for the past 25 years. He said that everyday he went to work he felt like it must feel like in prison. He dreaded getting up each morning to go to his job and he sounded so defeated and “joyless”. And, besides the fact that he wasn’t happy, he wasn’t making enough money to live. I asked him why he would spend 25 years of his life doing something that he had no passion for while building someone else’s dream and he had no answer.
It was at that time that I decided that I must help this man by sharing my business with him as I had created total freedom in my life by this point and I was once in his shoes. I was completely blown away by his response. He told me he could never consider anything else because he only had 5 years left until his retirement. My words “So you mean to say you are going to spend the next 5 years of your life doing something you absolutely hate in order that you can retire in 5 years with a pension that will be 1/3 of what you can’t live on now?” His answer was yes which absolutely made no sense to me.
We are all put here on this earth to let our light shine and make a difference and how dare us settle and play small because we are fearful of change. Too many of us settle in mediocrity most of our lives and in the end look back with regret. We have the opportunity every single day for a new beginning with a clean slate and yet we stay put. If what you are doing is not meeting your needs either spiritually, physically or financially, you have the power to change that beginning now.
I love new beginnings and have been blessed with the instinct to know when it’s time to change course. Many people wait till January 1st to write new goals and plan a vision and direction for their life. How about now? Why spend another day off your course! Who is ready for a new beginning?
As I look back over the years prior to my success in Network Marketing, I think about all the things I wish I had been able to do… All the times I wanted to spend time with my family, my friends, or even myself. I feel like I missed out on so much that was important to me all because I had that J.O.B. to report to. Waiting all year to get that 1 or 2 weeks off is just a distant memory to me now but for most people, this is still their reality.
I missed so much and settled for so many years not knowing I had any other options at all. It wasn’t until 1997 when I was 50 years old and dead broke that I was introduced to Network Marketing for the very first time. It was different than anything I knew, totally uncomfortable and FAR outside of my comfort zone. It was however, the first time that I ever realized that there was another way. It was the first time I knew with total clarity that I actually had a choice as to how I earn my income and how I spend my time. What a powerful moment when it hit me that an ordinary person like me could create an extraordinary future for myself and my family just by making a decision to take a different path. Not an easy path, mind you. Most people didn’t get what was so apparent to me. I didn’t want to settle in mediocrity any longer and I chose the amazing industry of Network Marketing as my vehicle to FREEDOM!!!
I am writing this today because I just spent the past 3 days with 2 of my 6 Grand Children during their Spring break and I’m reminded this morning of what a gift it is that I have the freedom to do that. I never want to take this for granted!!! Nor do I want to miss the opportunity to share with you the choice that each of us have to embrace our lives and CHOOSE to live our dreams by creating the future we desire. I made a choice to change and it is my absolute passion to encourage, coach and mentor anyone who is ready to move forward and embrace this amazing journey called life.
Blake and Emerson have gone back home today after a packed 3 days. We ate too much, played too hard and as I sent them on their way, I took a deep breath and thanked God for the beautiful abundant life that I now live. It feels amazing to wake up each day and know that I will do exactly what makes my heart feel good!!! These past 3 days made my heart feel great!!!
They say good things come to those who wait. I say opportunity is a moving target that unless you are chasing it, is pretty hard to hit!!! So stop waiting and start chasing. Ariix is about unleashing your human potential, not about bathing in mediocrity as many do waiting for an opportunity to happen.
Ariix seeks individuals who are aggressive, passionate, and visionaries – those who are willing to take a shot at a moving target!
I spent most of my life in mediocrity knowing I was put here to do more than what I was doing. I just kept waiting for the right opportunity to come along and it never occurred to me that I was the one who needed to go after what I wanted. In 1997 I was tired of waiting and I drew my line in the sand and made a decision to create the rest of my life on my terms. What an empowering feeling to know that the best way to predict my future was to create it. I did just that!!!
There are two types of people in this world…those who make it happen and those who talk about making it happen. Those who “do it” and those who give excuses for “not doing it”. Invariably, the excuse makers are from your typical “employed” mentality while the make-it-happen folks are from the “business building-investor type” mentality or consider themselves entrepreneurs. They are looking for a formula that contains the mechanics of wealth, one that will allow them enough transitional time to make the mental, emotional and physical changes necessary to succeed. These people understand the value of a team and have a clear understanding that the individual can’t do it alone. They realize the power of the right formula to support them in every aspect of their business virtually guaranteeing that if they remain motivated, hard working and committed to the formula, they cannot help but succeed. They realize that while it may take time, their results are in their own hands and that consistent effort will always produce desired results. These are the type of people who join Ariix
The right formula must work for everybody. It must be understood and equally applicable for the average hardworking person. The right formula is non-discriminatory. It has no age or education requirements. The right formula should also allow anyone with a work ethic to get in business with a low startup cost. Success is not and never should be the sole domain of the rich.
I am a perfect example of that. I came from poverty, started my journey at age 50 and had never been involved in the amazing industry of network marketing which I am now so passionate about. There is only one success…to be able to spend your life in your own way. Stop waiting and start chasing!!! Learn More About Ariix

How does a single mother of 2 on government assistance just getting by even with two or three jobs make the leap to financial independence ? Does She:
Nope none of the above apply. The MLM industry provides a much greater chance of success than the lotto, or getting your book published, hell even billionaires are hard to come by these days (they are all taken or dead anyways). Want to go back to school ? Sure ! throw 50K or more into an institution that cares more about enrollment, profits, and endowments, oh and Good luck finding a job as well! Burning my tongue with a cup of coffee just doesn’t feel like my life’s purpose, so Ill stick to home made java.
When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breath then you will be successful
Lynn Allen-Johnson is the epitome of all examples of success! You don’t become part of the ARIIX founders Club by being mediocre, you do it by being amazing. You do it by busting your rear because you want success, because your back is against the wall.
Instead of playing the blame game, you take responsibility.

We have to admit, all these lessons we are showing and teaching you are nothing new. I bet you have probably already heard of these so called healthy diets, exercise, and nutritional supplementation stuff even before you came to visit this site right? Of course we all did! But how come we still do not apply these things even if we are already aware of the possible consequences. If we already know that smoking causes lung cancer then why are so many people still doing it? If we are aware that driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs can kill us then why are we still doing it? The answer to that is the deep level of the decision to change. Continue reading
