A couple of months ago, I have the privilege of Jordan Ruben investing some time with me, along with his V.P. of Sales and Business Development Dave Johnson. Since then I have dug a little deeper and learned some exciting things about Jordan Ruben, Garden Of Life, Beyond Organic, and the mission Jordan has stayed true to since his own health was turned around, is nothing short of miraculous.
Jordan Rubin is one of America’s most recognized and respected natural health experts. Known as America’s Biblical Health Coach, he is a New York Times best selling author of “The Maker’s Diet,” and 20 additional health titles, including his latest work “Live Beyond Organic.” An international motivational speaker, and host of the weekly television show “Living Beyond Organic,” that reaches over 30 million households worldwide. Jordan has lectured on natural health in 5 continents and 44 states in the US.
Jordan is Founder and CEO of Garden of Life, a leading whole food nutritional supplement company. Now Jordan is fulfilling a lifelong dream by starting Beyond Organic, a vertically integrated organic food and beverage company farming close to 9,000 organic acres in southern Missouri and Georgia. Jordan resides in Palm Beach Gardens, FL with his wife Nicki and three children Joshua, Samuel and Alexis.

We have all heard the stories of people that have quit right before they would have turned the corner and missed out on personal and professional success. This is especially true in Network Marketing, where because the cost of starting a business is low, quitting doesn’t seem so painful.
In reality, if you are going to invest 100K or more in a franchise, you are going to do whatever it takes to make it successful. Most franchisors tell you it will take you 2-3 years to make your money back and even more for higher priced franchises. Yet, people that get involved in our industry have an opportunity to have much greater success than franchise owners at a mere fraction of the cost of owning a franchise….and you are not restricted to a geographic area of 20,000 households or so.
With all the potential upside of owning your own business through network marketing, why do people quit. The price of failing is not very high and most people do not treat it like a business. As soon as they run into obstacles, they don’t do the things they need to do to be successful and they do not persevere.
To reach what you deem success will rarely be simple and easy. But before we talk about what it takes to get there, we first need to understand what success actually is. Arthur Ashe, that great tennis star of the past once said, ”Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.” This is particularly true of the two characteristic we are speaking about. Success is always a result of action.
Having a consistent action habit will invariably on it’s very own begin to propel you toward success. Consistency is a principle and it not only deals with action but also with what you think and what you say. It must be congruent in all areas of your life.
Perseverance on the other hand is come hell, high water or come what may, you are going to continue on the chosen path. Almost every great accomplishment came through consistent perseverance. It is overcoming all obstacles against whatever stands in your way.. It is that tenacious spirit that will never give up right to the end. It is this concept of persistence that we all admire. We have all heard the stories of Edison, Lincoln, Disney and even Colonel Sanders.
They achieved incredible success through perseverance.
So here are some suggestions to help you in your path to that which you deem as “success”:
Winston Churchill said it so eloquently in a convocation address… NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP. Even when things seem impossible and all odds are stacked up against you, never quit or give up. There will most certainly be bumps in the road and you will continually be faced with challenges. Seek new ways to meet these challenges head on.
Change your perspective on the negative issues that crop up in your life. Look for the positive in each situation you encounter. Surround yourself with people that encourage this type of perspective and exemplify it in their own daily lives. Hang around people who will build you up rather than tear you down. This truly will help you become more consistent and persistent.
Become a person how take fully responsibility for his/her life. When you take responsibility and no longer blame others for your lack of success, you will find it to become easier to embed that consistent and perseverance nature into your own life. Blamers are always victims. Being a victim robs you of power in your life.
Perseverance and Consistency will bring a new found strength and empowerment to your life. It will begin to help you think correctly, speak correctly and act correctly while attracting like minded people into your life.
