Dear VitaMist Family,

ms Deihl_view_letterWhat does October mean to you?
Is it the end of summer?  The start of fall?  Halloween, maybe?  Or are you thinking about the onset of winter, with longer nights and sitting in front of warm fires?  Before you know it, it will be the Holiday Season again.

The Holiday Season comes around every year!  Yet every single year I have heard “The Holidays” used as a “reason” for people to let their business slow down.  Well, just remember, you have a choice!  You can either have your freedom, or you can give excuses. In order for you to have the financial freedom you want, and the success you deserve in your VitaMist business, you need to give up two things right now: making excuses and blaming others!

I would guess that every single VitaMist Distributor is doing one of two things; either making money or blaming someone and giving excuses. Let me repeat myself. You are either making a success of your business, or you are giving excuses and blaming someone else for your failure. Imagine if you owned a McDonalds franchise, and you did not make any profit in your first month or year.  Would you blame the corporate office or the regional inspector? My guess is, you wouldn’t.  Why not?  Because the McDonalds system has made a lot of people very successful.
Giving excuses for your failure is simply to clear yourself from blame. So you had a home party with 49 guests and no one signed up.  Do you give up?  Your up-line’s phone was cut off and you couldn’t make a three way call.  Do you give up?  You can either make money or make an excuse.  I am urging you to take ownership of your own VitaMist business.

It would be nice for your up-line to be available 24/7. It would be nice for you to be a great speaker, with a Ph.D. in sales.  However, in reality, nothing is perfect.  DO WHATEVER IT TAKES.  If your closing skill is lacking, work on it.  If your marketing skill is lacking, work on it. If your communication skill is lacking, work on it. Do not give excuses. Instead of excuses, work on being good at your craft.

Not only do we give excuses, we find a way to blame others for our failure. YOU ARE YOUR UP-LINE!  Think about that for a minute.  If you know you are your own up-line, then you will not blame anyone else for your failure or lack of results.  Blaming others for your own failure is “the language of the mediocre,”  and I know that you are not mediocre!
In conclusion, as winter approaches, I would like to borrow a slogan from our the United States Army, “be all that you can be!”  I urge you to live your life with passion, and take responsibility for both your successes and your failures.  Remember, if you point a finger at someone, there are three fingers pointing back at you.
Dream big dreams, then put on your overalls and go out and make your dreams come true –

Emotions are the most powerful forces inside us. Under the power of emotions, human beings can perform the most heroic, as well as barbaric acts. To a great degree, civilization itself can be defined as the intelligent channeling of human emotion. Emotions are fuel and the mind is the pilot, which together propel the ship of civilized progress.

Which emotions cause people to act? There are four basic ones. Each can trigger the most incredible activity individually, or a combination of several . The day that you allow these emotions to fuel your desire is the day that you’ll turn your life around.


One does not usually equate the word “disgust” with positive action. Yet, when properly channeled, disgust can change a person’s life. The person who feels disgusted has reached a point of no return. He or she is ready to throw down the gauntlet at life and say, “I’ve had it!” That’s what I said after many humiliating experiences at age 25. I said, “I don’t want to live like this anymore. I’ve had it with being broke. I’ve had it with being embarrassed, and I’ve had it with lying.”


Yes, productive feelings of disgust come when a person says, “Enough is enough.”


The “guy” has finally had it with mediocrity. He’s had it with those awful, sick feelings of fear, pain and humiliation. He then decides he is not going to live like this anymore. Look out! This could be the day that turns a life around. Call it what you will:




Whatever you call it, it’s powerful! There is nothing so life-changing as gut-wrenching disgust!



Most of us need to be pushed to the wall to make decisions.


And once we reach this point, we have to deal with the conflicting emotions that come with making them. We have reached a fork in the road. Now this fork can be a two- prong, three-prong, or even a four-prong fork. No wonder that decision making can create knots in stomachs, keep us awake in the middle of the night, and make us break out in a cold sweat.


Making life-changing decisions can be likened to an internal civil war. Conflicting armies of emotions, each with its own arsenal of reasons, battle each other for control of our minds. Our resulting decisions- whether bold or timid, well thought out or impulsive- can either set the course of action, or blind it. I don’t have much advice to give you about decision-making except this:


Whatever you do, don’t camp at the fork in the road.


Decide. It’s far better to make a wrong decision, than to not make one at all. Each of us must confront our emotional turmoil and sort out our feelings.



How does one gain desire? I don’t think I can answer this directly because there are many ways. But I do know two things about desire:


It comes from the inside not the outside.

It can be triggered by outside forces.


Almost anything can trigger desire. It’s a matter of timing as much as preparation. It might be a song that tugs at the heart. It might be a memorable sermon. It might be a movie, a conversation with a friend, a confrontation with the enemy or a bitter experience. Even a book or an article such as this one can trigger the inner mechanism that will make some people say, “I want it now!”


Therefore, while searching for your “hot button” of pure, raw desire, welcome into your life each positive experience. Don’t erect a wall to protect you from experiencing life. The same wall that keeps out your disappointment also keeps out the sunlight of enriching experiences. So let life touch you. The next touch could be the one that turns your life around.



Resolve says, “I will.” These two words are among the most potent in the English language. I WILL. Benjamin Disraeli, the great British statesman, once said, “Nothing can resist a human will that will stake even its existence on the extent of its purpose.” In other words, when someone resolves to “do or die,” nothing can stop him.


The mountain climber says, “I WILL climb the mountain.”


They’ve told me it’s too high, it’s too far, it’s too steep, it’s too rocky, it’s too difficult. But it’s my mountain. I WILL climb it. You’ll soon see me waving from the top or you’ll never see me again, because unless I reach the peak, I’m not coming back.” Who can argue with such resolve?

When confronted with such iron will determination, I can see Time, Fate and Circumstance calling a hasty conference and deciding, “We might as well let him have his dream.

He’s said he’s going to get there or die trying.”


The best definition for “resolve” I’ve ever heard came from a schoolgirl in Foster City, California. I was lecturing about success to a group of bright kids at a junior high school. I asked, “Who can tell me what ‘resolve’ means?” Several hands went up, and I did get some pretty good definitions. However, the last was the best.


A shy girl from the back of the room got up and said with quiet intensity, “I think resolve means promising yourself you will never give up.” That’s it! That’s the best definition I’ve ever heard.


Think about it! How long should a baby try to learn how to walk? How long would you give the average baby before you say, “That’s it, you’ve had your chance”? You say that’s crazy? Of course it is. Any mother would say, “My baby is going to keep trying until he learns how to walk!” No wonder everyone walks.

There is a vital lesson in this. Ask yourself, “How long am I going to work to make my dreams come true?” I suggest you answer, “As long as it takes.” That’s what these four emotions are all about.



















High-Fat Foods That Are Good for You

Sure, avocados are high in fat—perhaps that’s why they’ve earned the nickname “butter pears”—but most of the fat in an avocado is monounsaturated, the heart-healthy kind that actually lowers bad cholesterol. In recent years, the U.S. government has even revised its official nutrition guidelines to urge Americans to eat more avocados. Moderation is still key, since one medium avocado boasts 30 grams of fat. Try substituting avocados for butter or cream cheese, or replace the mayo on your sandwich with avocado slices.


Fatty Fish.

The term “fatty fish” may sound unappealing, but actually, these are the healthiest and most delicious foods from the sea. Oily fish such as salmon, tuna, sardines, mackerel and trout are full of omega-3 fatty acids—good fats, unlike the bad saturated fat you find in most meats. According to the American Heart Association, people should eat at least two servings weekly of lake herring, lake trout, mackerel, salmon, sardines or tuna for the healthy omega-3 fats they contain.


Eggs are an inexpensive and easy source of protein. People often think eggs whites are a healthier option than whole eggs because they contain less fat, and while it’s true that the egg yolk contains some fat, it’s also packed with important nutrients. One whole egg contains 5 grams of fat, but only 1.5 grams are saturated. Whole eggs are also a good source of choline (one egg yolk has about 300 micrograms of choline), an important B vitamin that helps regulate the brain, nervous system and cardiovascular system. And while there’s a lot of buzz about the cholesterol in eggs, research has linked moderate egg consumption to improved heart health.


Olive Oil.

Olive oil is commonly used in the Mediterranean diet (one of the most recommended for a healthy lifestyle), and we’ve all heard that olive oil reduces the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and certain types of cancer. However, it still packs 100 calories per tablespoon, so moderation is important if you’re watching your weight. A recent study published in Neurology found that cooking with heart-healthy olive oil and using it for salad dressing may cut stroke risk.

ms deihl brief_smallLabor day has passed, and traditionally, since I was a child, this means it’s the end of summer.  I hope you have all had a fabulous time and are at the point of really getting down to some serious work.  VitaMist is growing by leaps and bounds, and I’m hoping you are ready to grow with us.

Summer seems to have become a time for excuses, especially in the world of referral marketing.  I’m sure, like me, you’ve heard it all!

“It’s time to relax”

“It’s Summer, I need to slow down”

“These are the lazy days of summer”

“I’m going to read books and forget about working”

“It’s summer! I’m going to play and travel!”

Well, it is no secret that during the summer, along with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s, referral marketing has a tendency to slow down.  People go on vacation and/or there is a natural tendency to take time off, to slow down, to be less active and to buy less.  As a referral network marketer yourself be aware that if you get lulled into this vacation cycle and are not working YOUR business, you may NEVER, EVER have the success that you want in this industry.

So, if this sounds like your summer and if you have allowed yourself to ease back over the last couple of months, I urge you to come out of it – FIGHTING!!

VitaMist is offering you some opportunities of a lifetime!  Contests that can change your financial life forever!  To find out how, check out our weekly training calls.  These are opportunities that you have to seize with both hands, and if you haven’t done so already, share with all your friends! Please don’t let this golden moment pass you by!

Remember, if you need guidance and inspiration, listen to our conference calls and daily focus calls.  If you need advice, call us!  We are a TEAM and “Together Everybody Achieves More”

Dream big dreams, then put on your overalls and go out and make your dreams come true –
