Putting Forth The Extra Effort!

Recently l was reading a book titled “One” and I would like to share something from that book with you.

Down through the ages and around the world there has never been another you and there never will be. YOU are not here by mistake!

The miracle of your existence is now in your hands each and every day. You are here for a purpose and you have something that only you can give to the world. I personally feel the question is…have you taken the time to consider what that is? If you have then you are ahead of so many people. Many people have not taken the quiet time to find the answer to the question of…. what is my purpose in life? But my next question is, are you really putting forth the effort to share and expand that gift that you have. If not, are you aware that it takes only the smallest degree of effort to make a huge difference.

Backwards As Forward!

It’s a beautiful day here in Carlsbad, CA. We all have so much to be gratefull for.
A friend sent me this information. You may have seen this on You Tube it is truly amazing and I just wanted to share it with you all again.

A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward.

This video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward.

Not only does it read the opposite, the meaning is the exact opposite.

This is only a 1 minute, 44 second video and it is brilliant.

Make sure you read as well as listen…forward and backward.

This is a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20-year old.

The contest was titled “u @ 50” by AARP. This video won second place.

When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause.

So simple and yet so brilliant. Take a minute and watch it.

The One Flaw In A Woman

Years ago someone sent this poem and I have used it many times in our Women’s Empowerment seminars.
You will find the original version of the poem below. I was very excited when just a few days ago someone sent me this beautiful movie using the words from the poem. Click Here for the movie and I encourage you to sign up for the newsletter. I hope you enjoy the movie just as much as I have. Make sure to turn up your speakers.

By the time the Lord made woman, he was into his sixth day of working overtime. An angel appeared and said, “Why are you spending so much time on this one?”
And the Lord answered, “Have you seen my spec sheet on her? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable and able to run on diet coke and leftovers, have a lap that can hold four children at one time, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart-and she will do everything with only two hands.”

The angel was astounded at the requirements. “Only two hands!? No way! And that’s just on the standard model? That’s too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish.”
“But I won’t,” the Lord protested. “I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart. She already heals herself when she is sick AND can work 18 hour days.”
The angel moved closer and touched the woman. “But you have made her so soft, Lord.”
“She is soft,” the Lord agreed, “but I have also made her tough. You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish.”
The angel asked: “Will she be able to think?”
The Lord replied, “Not only will she be able to think, she will be able to reason and negotiate.”
The angel then noticed something, and reaching out, touched the woman’s cheek. “Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model. I told! You that you were trying to put too much into this one.”
“That’s not a leak,” the Lord corrected, “that’s a tear!”
“What’s the tear for?” the angel asked.

“They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don’t take “no” for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They’ll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning. They bring joy, hope and love. They have compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have vital things to say and everything to give.”
“It sounds as if you have created perfection,” the angel said to the Lord.
“No, that is not true–there is one flaw which I have not been able to overcome.”

The angel inquired: “And what is woman’s one flaw?”

Can “I” Succeed In This Business?

Senator Olympia Snow, the first woman in US history to be elected to both houses of state legislature and both houses of congress also serves as Chair of the Senate Small Business Committee. Senator Snow has stated that, “Americans need more options to help them provide for their families. The ability to work from home is an essential means of achieving that goal.”

Senator Snow recognizes that businesses like MonaVie are providing alternatives for Americans to make a good living and provide for their families. MonaVie is a perfect example of a home-based business that anyone can start with very little start-up money. It allows you to be your own boss, work from home, set your own hours, and gives you the freedom to take care of your home, your family and yourself.

Right now you may be thinking, “This all sounds great, but is this business really something that I can do successfully?”

And the answer is a great big YES, because you don’t have to be a marketing expert. You don’t even have to have any special skills or any sales ability. The best thing about this business is that you can be successful just by being yourself.

All you need to be successful in this business is:
1. To have a strong desire to create success for yourself
2. Be willing to be part of a team and to listen and learn
3. Be willing to invest your time and energy into achieving your financial goals and long-term security

Did you notice that “You have to be a great salesperson” wasn’t included in that list? That’s because our business is not about selling…our business is about building relationships. It’s a team sport. Everything you need to know to do this business successfully you’ll learn from people who are here to show you how to do it. Because they only succeed by helping you succeed.

It doesn’t matter what your background, if you went to college or not, if you’ve worked in corporate America or not, direct selling offers you the opportunity to create a significant part-time or a substantial full-time income, all while working from your home.

There was a time when women had two options – to go to work or to stay at home. Today there is a third option and it is changing the lives of millions of women all over the globe. You could be one of them. You can create solid long-term financial success in this business all while developing yourself into the best friend, team mate and leader you can be.

Women just like you are doing it every day. You just have to want to make a change in your life and take a chance on yourself.

To Your Success,

Take A Moment!

This slide show was recently sent to me and I would like to share it with all of you. Please take a moment to be in the moment! Make sure to turn up your speakers.

I would like to share with you another bit of information from Rachel Snyder’s Book….Words of Wisdom for Women.

Pour it out. Dump it out. Throw it out. Empty every bag, box, and bureau. Empty every closet, every corner, every cupboard, every cell. Pull it out. Drag it out. Clean it out. Clear it out. Spread it out, sort it out. Look at what you’ve collected, what you’ve stored, what you carry around with you every day of your life. Empty out the old, the unwanted, the unusable. Empty out the pain, the heartache, the memories. Empty everything that offers nothing. Leave things empty for a while. Feel empty. Feel the lack. Feel your way through the nothingness, until at last you feel ready to fill.

This is a great book and I suggest you check it out and enjoy!


Eat, Pray, Love, Women’s Empowerment Event

On August 14th we will have a fabulous Eat, Pray, Love event in Carlsbad, CA. The book Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert is based on her true experience traveling in Italy, India and Indonesia. Click Here is watch a trailer of the movie Eat, Pray, Love which comes out on August 13th.

Our W.E. Women’s Empowerment event will start with an Italian fare late lunch at 3 PM and the around 5 PM we will travel down to the local theatre and watch the movie based on the book with the main character being played played by Julia Roberts. After the movie then back up to Sheri’s home for dessert and a sunset party. We have limited seating for the lunch, but there will be plenty of room at the theatre for the movie and the sunset dessert party. Please email me at tracy@luvnlife.com for more details.

Don’t Pre Judge People

Don’t pre-judge or make assumptions about people….

If we really thought about it we would be shocked on how many times during a day we pre-judge people. Last year a very good visual example is on this video of Susan Boyle who appeared on Britain’s Got Talent. Watch carefully the expressions on the faces of the people in the audience including the judging panel. Hear what the judges have to say and how they admit to pre-judging Susan. As her album hits the top of the sales chart, Susan Boyle has another achievement to celebrate – her Britain’s Got Talent audition has been named YouTube’s most-watched video of the year.

Have you ever read the book, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz? One thing you will learn is make no assumptions. Mr. Ruiz suggests that we all find the courage to ask questions and at the same time express what we really want. We need to clearly communicate with others as clearly as we can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama in our lives. In doing this we are making no assumptions or pre-judgments.

In the business of network marketing we need to follow that note and never pre-judge or make the assumption that a person would not be interested in our business opportunity because we assume they don’t have the time, don’t have the money to invest, or are at a status or income level that they would not be interested.

You can learn more valuable information on how to recruit people into your business by joining us each and every Saturday for our Business Building Call. The call is at 9:30 AM PT // 12:30 ET stsrting with our Opportunity Call that is then follwed by our Business Building Call. The number is 712-432-3900 pin code: 679797#.

Just like Susan Boyle you must have a dream or cause and not be afraid to share this gift with others no matter how long it may take.

Luv n’life,
Sheri Sharman


Here is Rachel Snyder’s take on the word “Serve”. Hope you enjoy!

Serve a higher purpose. Serve humanity, serve the Earth, serve the greater commom good. Dedicate your life to service in its many forms. Serve in your own way, using the precious gifts that only you can give. Serve the young, the old, the dying. Serve women, serve men, serve to bring us closer together. Serve families formed by birth, choice, or circumstance. Serve the very weak, serve the strong and powerful. Serve through medicine, through law, through laughter and song. Through deeds, through words, by the sweat of your brow and the love of your heart. Serve in whatever way you are called to serve. Serve others with no concern for serving yourself, and know you will always be served.

As part of our Women’s Empowerment event in on August…the Eat. Pray, Love event we will be accepting donations of clean gently used clothing for men. women and children along with household items that will be donated to The Bridge of Hope in San Diego. Click Here for more information on this organization. We are alos arranging for Sheri Briggs founder of this organization to be a guest speaker on our Monday July 19th. Women’s Empowerment call. Check back for details on this call.
