Take care of your emotions

Recently, we were studying some research that was very thought-provoking. It examined the relationship between emotions, particularly negative ones, and our physical health. When we have negative feelings toward someone else, whether a spouse, partner, co-worker, or friend, it can hurt us more than the other person. Experiments in laboratories have shown that under the influence of powerful negative emotions, man's physiology deteriorates from coherence to chaos. It appears that nothing afflicts our psyche and our physiology more than feeling at odds with those closest to us.

Furthermore, researchers have discovered that every time we engage in unpleasantness with someone—at the office, with a loved one, or even while driving—our immune system becomes temporarily weakened. On the other hand, Dr. David Servan-Schreiber observes, "True empowering love makes us stronger physically, boosts our immune system, heals our emotional wounds and fears, and transforms troubled relationships."

Pretty interesting, isn't it? While 4Life Transfer Factor® provides important protection for the immune system, we must also be vigilant in protecting ourselves from the damaging effects of negativity. That makes it all the more important for us to cultivate human kindness and exercise consideration. While you might never think about missing a day of 4Life Transfer Factor, you may not always be as careful in observing the words you choose and how you communicate with those around you.

We have resolved as a couple to be more careful in examining our reactions and interactions in order to build strong and healthy relationships with our family, friends, co-workers, and acquaintances. Together, Building People and providing great products that support the healthy function of the immune system are what we do best at 4Life. And now it looks like the two things go hand in hand!

What makes 4Life different?

The 4Life Home Office rolls out the "red carpet" for Kim Ferguson.

When Gold International Diamond Kim Ferguson visited the 4Life Home Office recently, she brought two guests with her. We spoke at length with Kim about her thoughts on why new distributors choose 4Life. The guests she brought are especially interested in 4Life because of the unique message that we offer. See if their comments sound familiar to you:

1. They are impressed with the science of 4Life products.

2. They are excited about the opportunity to achieve success quickly through the Life Rewards Plan. They are also impressed with the consistent growth 4Life has experienced around the world.

3. They are grateful for the warm reception and service they have received from the 4Life staff.

4. They are impressed with the dedication and leadership they have witnessed in Kim Ferguson, a successful distributor who has been with 4Life for many years.

Kim's guests, and many others just like them, are attracted to 4Life because of what we offer in the areas of Science, Success, and Service. At 4Life, we are committed to leading the way in these three areas. We are grateful that so many people recognize that Science, Success, and Service are important pieces of what 4Life is all about. And when distributors build their 4Life businesses on these principles, their chance for overall success is much greater. We wish all of you continued growth and prosperity as we bring the best of Science, Success, and Service to the world!

4Life Success “Down Under”

Recently, we had the chance to go "Down Under" and join some of our 4Life family members in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia for the 4Life Australia/New Zealand convention. It was wonderful to be with our distributors in that part of the world and celebrate all that they have achieved. The people of Australia and New Zealand are known for their entrepreneurial spirit, and this was certainly evident during the convention as they shared their enthusiasm for the 4Life products and opportunity.

During the Recognition Gala, we were treated to the amazing talents
of the "Team Diamond" band, led by 4Life Presidential Diamond and professional musician Tony Kruger. He sang "Life is wonderful" by Jason Marz, and changed the words to "4Life is wonderful." He was amazing! We think even Jason Marz would have been impressed!

We were inspired by 4Life Diamond John DeJose and 4Life Presidential Diamond Dr. Stephen Hardy, who are passionate in their research to use 4Life Transfer Factor to benefit animals in Australia. And, of course, we loved meeting with wonderful distributor leaders such as 4Life International Diamonds Barry and Sue Blake. They are such vibrant and caring human beings.

Great things are happening in Australia and New Zealand, evidenced by t
he passion and commitment we witnessed at their recent convention. We're confident that we'll continue to witness amazing success in that part of the 4Life world. To all those who are working so hard to take 4Life to the great people of Australia and New Zealand, we'd like to say, "Goodonya!"

Tony Kruger and the "Team Diamond" band entertain the crowd.

Presidential Diamonds Masa and Deanne Urasaki, Dr. CK Benny Foo, Desiree De Leeuw, and Marie and Michael Salmon receive awards.

John DeJose, Bianca Lisonbee, David Lisonbee, Dr. Stephen Hardy, and Gold International Diamond Indra Virasinghe hold a special meeting during the cruise on Sunday morning.

A group of happy 4Life distributors enjoy the Sunday cruise during the Australia/New Zealand convention.

Strengthening Families with 4Life Transfer Factor

David and Bianca Lisonbee with their grandchildren

One of the greatest joys of our 4Life experience has been the way in which the products have blessed the lives of our children and grandchildren. As parents and grandparents, it’s so important to us that our loved ones enjoy great health so they can experience life to the fullest. Watching how 4Life Transfer Factor has strengthened their immune systems has been so rewarding.

If we had developed these products just so our family alone could experience them, it would have definitely been worth it. But, we also want your family to experience 4Life Transfer Factor’s unique support. As you do, we are confident that you will find that the most important items in your medicine chest will be your 4Life Transfer Factor products.

Our new twin grandchildren just turned six months old in January. We were talking the other day about how healthy and happy they are. After consulting with her pediatrician, our daughter-in-law began giving 4Life Transfer Factor to the twins at a very young age to provide strong support for their developing immune systems. With three older siblings in preschool and elementary school, you can imagine all of the germs that come home! We’re grateful for the support that 4Life Transfer Factor has provided these little ones. After all, transfer factor is nature’s first supplement!

We wish the best for you and your families as you use 4Life Transfer Factor to support overall health and wellness. And, let’s continue to share these products with families throughout the world!
