GREEN, GREEN, GREEN GREEN GREEN! Gah I don’t even like GREEN but I find myself surrounded by it! Even my wife, Susan, loves to joke that I am GREEN, she claims I have an “olive” complexion, so I guess I have always been GREEN. Heck, I even remember being “GREEN with Envy” about 15 years back when my ex-wife left me with a mountain of debt and no car. I would ride my bicycle, a second hand garage sale 10-speed, to work, then to work and back every day, about 10 miles. I would wait patiently at a light, watching people whizzing bye in new cars and think to myself “why isn’t that me?”
That was probably my first personal motivator, my fist step at self improvement, the envy of others locomotion. I took a hard look at my life and asked, “why not?” It made me realize that if I wanted to progress the only thing holding me back was a little GREEN, a little money, and if I wanted things to change I would have to find a way to make a little more.
So I did a little self evaluation, took a good hard look at my life and realized that if I kept doing what Id always done Id keep getting what I’d always got! I looked into my personal toolkit and realized of the X,Y & Z’s of my current process, only Z (working in hotels) was my best bet as it was the one in which I had already progressed the furthest. It offered my the best potential for GREEN.
I ran with it and never looked back, took it to the top of my game, I reached the GREEN, the peak of my earning capacity at my terms with that tool. I didn’t hit the point of “riches” but I did get to a point where I could afford to live the life I watched whizzing bye on the side of the road so many years before.
I wasn’t done yet, however, it turned out that I needed more GREEN. This time GREEN popped up in my life in the form of health and wellness. I had ignored my personal health to the point where I was in trouble. I had a choice to make between a life of a plethora of expensive pills with obvious side effects or to again change my life. I went GREEN, vegetarian that is, and changed everything.
I began cutting out all the harmful habits I had developed in my previous pursuit of GREEN, fast food, meat. I replaced them with GREEN healthy vegetables, fresh juice and organic produce. I lost some weight and gained back some of the health I had lost and then, I hit a plateau.
This time I knew what I needed to do, GO GREEN and change again. I found, thanks to a close friend, this amazing company, Melaleuca, that allowed me to begin the process of DETOXING my home and my life. My weight loss was kick started, my health improved dramatically (haven’t taken a diabetes pill all week), I started to feel better and more in control AND it offered me a BETTER way to try and meet some of my financial goals. It showed me #somethingreal that I want to share with everyone, I would love to share it with you just contact me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I know this is a bit off topic but I just felt compelled to share. I also find I don’t hate GREEN so much anymore. I think that if someone were to come up to me and say “You’re a GREEN one Mr. Bennett.” I might just respond,
So what do you think, am I a “GREEN one”?
“Why yes, yes I am!”
