I believe our journey through life is a continuous work in progress that is a result of our true purpose.
That purpose can take many turns that we hope are positive as a result of our own happiness or sorrow.
Hopefully we acquire wisdom, humility, compassion, and LOVE, along the way.
Love, an often misinterpreted, misused, and, obviously abused word, in lieu of the state of the world.
As each generation passes, we see an increase of corruption applied to both our society and our minds.
Maybe it’s easier for me to rebuff this attitude because I have a renewed purpose in life at 74 though I feel like 40.
AGN is so much more to me than fitness & nutrition.
I am certain that AGN is best served by loving everyone it comes in contact with, a passion to make life better.
Of course, a love of this magnitude has to be administered delicately and PURELY, as we all know what’s going on.
Most engage services in our field because they are personally not happy with where they are.
Hard to change that if all about the “money”, which is what business is.
People come in & out of our lives, some you love, and they still leave, but if they grasp this pure love, they stay, or come back.
This world would certainly be a better place, with this kind of love.
This may not happen in my lifetime, I only have about 30 years, haa, but it will happen at AGN.
So if society deems my love as phony or inappropriate, I say, how’s their brand working out ?
If you come to AGN, you are going to be “loved”, listened to, encouraged, and pushed to reach your goals.
Again, some will leave, others won’t reach their goals, many will succeed, all will know we tried, and loved them.
The repercussions over the Weinstein scandal are difficult for me to fathom on a personal level.
This abhorrent behavior has always been a well publicized segment of Hollywood society, and shouldn’t surprise anyone.
Having recently become cognizant of the social media platform in regards to our business, the pervasiveness
of this problem stuns me. Combine that platform with the advent of a far reaching news media and the scope and pattern becomes apparently evident.
Because of the notoriety of being in the public eye, men in powerful positions are often exposed with regularity.
But it appears that this problem filters down into the everyday workplace in every segment of society.
My own personal take is my opinion only, and certainly many “real” men reached their own values through various channels.
I was brought up during a period that is often referred to as the “greatest generation.” This term primarily relates to the heroes who represented our country during WW II. It includes both genders, but not so much the women who remained home.
Those women did replace the men working when needed and aided in the war effort at home, but in addition, they and family members, raised the children as stay at home moms, often all members of the same household.
Aunts, cousins, and older daughters, not yet on their own. They administered what is so much lacking in many American households, a “woman’s touch.”
Most important a MOTHER, the kind of love, affection, and passion that only a mom could provide. If not mom, it might be an aunt, cousin, big sister, someone part of a very close knit family.
Most men, if raised in this environment, hold women in the highest esteem, to be honored, respected, and cherished. Not only did I have an angelic mom, I had a number of aunts who were worthy of this praise.
I am honored to be one of these men, and blessed to have a plethora of these women in my life, one as my business partner.
I am a few generations older, and I am privileged to be able to set an example of a “real” man.
Let’s all be gentlemen and embrace these women as a treasure that will bear our children of the future.
Today, I want to emphasize that keeping it simple, go slow, crawl, then walk, not even necessary to run, will get results.
