Corporate Message

Mark Brown

By Mark Brown

Our last training message focused on the power of axioms. We stated that because axioms are by definition true, using axioms as you identify core values helps you live according to true principles. And, if you establish core values that aren’t based on truth, you will eventually find your actions, and therefore your life, drifting from truth.

The importance of core values cannot be overstated. We live in the information age and are bombarded from all quarters with all sorts of data—some of it useful, most of it vacuous, and all of it with the power to distract. If we are not clear on our core values—if we do not have clear priorities—and if we do not take the time to remind ourselves what those core values are, we can lose sight of them.

One may wonder how one could lose sight of a core value such as being a trusting and loving father, for example, but just ask yourself when you last gave more priority to something of far less importance and you’ll see what I mean. It’s like a radio signal that you can’t quite pick up because of all the noise in the spectrum.

In our Max Living seminars and in the Max Living System Guidebook, we provide a thought exercise to help you identify your core values—for what would you cross a six-inch wide, 192-foot-long I-beam 1,483 feet above the ground? Perhaps a few would cross for baseball or Starbucks, but the vast majority would only do so for what truly matters most—family, friends, knowledge, liberty, etc.

All of your core values together help build a picture of your “why”—tile by tile, you are crafting a mosaic. They provide the “what” of your why. Most, if not all, of the companies in our industry talk about a “why”—why are you devoting your time to building a business? The idea is to go beyond the surface benefits of the chance to earn an income and identify the underlying value that such an income will support or make possible.

Max International gives deeper substance and structure to a why by helping you identify the core values that comprise it. Core Values of “I am financially independent” and “I am a devoted and loving husband and father” can obviously work together to produce a powerful why that will propel you to success with Max. As you routinely review your core values, you can keep the foundation of your why at the forefront of your activity. In this sense, the means justify—or, more precisely, clarify—the ends.

If you have developed your core values, be sure you are taking time every week to review and, if necessary, revise them, and don’t lose sight of them. If you haven’t developed your core values, it’s time to get started! Go to the “Your Max Business Plan” section of the Max Living System Guidebook and take the first steps on what will be an illuminating journey.

To your success!

This Week’s Business Call Schedule is a post from:

Throughout May, you can earn double FastTrack Bonuses and enroll new Associates for free when they purchase a Business Builder Pack (full or half) during enrollment, saving them US$49! These promotions were a big success in April. Continue to leverage these offerings and reap the rewards.

This month, Associates in all markets who sponsor or sell five or more Business Builder Packs (full or half packs) to their personally sponsored Associates will receive double FastTrack bonuses for all of them! Any Spanish or French Diamond Packs are also eligible.

Here are some example of what you could earn this month:

  • Sell five Business Builder packs to your personally sponsored Associates, and receive US$300×5=US$1,500!
  • Sell three full packs and three half packs, and receive double bonuses on all six—US$150×3+US$300×3=US$1,350!
  • Sell five Business Builder half packs to your personally sponsored Associates, and receive US$150×5=US$7,50!
  • Sell four full packs, and receive regular FastTrack bonuses (one short of requirement).
  • Sell four half packs in May, and then another on June 1 at 12:05 a.m. Mountain Time, receive regular FastTrack bonuses (5th pack sold after conclusion of promotion).

No April sales of packs can be applied to this May promotion. Any returns from this promotion will result in double FastTrack bonuses being clawed back from future disbursements.
