Happy February!

Can you believe it is already February? It seems to be one of those little months that sneaks in and sneaks out. Before February, you're in the midst of winter, but after it, there is the hope of spring. We like February for that reason. It is a bridge between winter and spring. It can be a very important month to get a jump on things, so to speak. January is often spent recovering and re-grouping after the holidays and March puts us into the thick of spring activities. So, February can be a great month to nestle in, dig down deep, and get to work. Many schoolteachers say it is one of the most productive months of the year in a child's learning curriculum. For 4Life distributors, it's the perfect opportunity to pull out that list of goals you made in January and get a lot of them done.

In the United States and Canada, we celebrate February 2 as Groundhog Day. On this day, if a groundhog emerging from its burrow fails to see its shadow, tradition says that winter will end soon. If the groundhog sees its shadow, supposedly winter will continue for six more weeks. Many of us are familiar with the film called Groundhog Day. In this story, the main character keeps re-living the same awful day until he figures out how to get it right. Perhaps you may sometimes feel that day after day, year after year, you are trapped by the same weaknesses.

We want you to know that the most powerful force in the world is an individual's desire to change and do better. Decide now to make February your "bridge" month—the bridge from inefficiency to productivity, and from negativity to optimism. Decide today to reach the goals that you desire.
