Europe Executive Message - Stewart RutterWith the new year now in full motion it is great to see and feel the excitement throughout our business. I just returned from visiting a few European markets where we have seen some our most exciting growth as a company. As I visited these markets and attended kick off meetings for 2013, I could see and more importantly feel the momentum that comes from people who are excited and actively engaged in building a Synergy business.
The enthusiasm and genuine optimism for the future is contagious! They have their challenges and obstacles just like the rest of us do, but they chose to focus on what makes us great as company and what this opportunity really can provide those that embrace it. I am very proud of our European market and excited about our future in that part of the world.
I am very excited for 2013. I am feeling the level of activity and commitment rise as we unite and focus on all that makes us great as company. This business can be difficult as you well know, but it can be the most rewarding and enriching experience at the same time as we focus on truly helping others achieve their own success. This business, like any other worthwhile endeavor, requires hard work, commitment, and great sacrifice. You see, this business is not so much about the end result as it is about the journey.
During my recent travels throughout Europe, I spent a lot of time with our first ever European Presidential Executive, Will Martin. I was reminded of an experience I had with Will at an event a few years ago here in Utah. Two women from Canada, after hearing Will speak about being broke before Synergy came into his life and then reaching financial freedom commented, “Will, you are so lucky, becoming Presidential Executive must be like winning the lottery.” Will, without a moment’s hesitation responded, “No, it’s nothing like winning the lottery. When you win the lottery, you miss the journey. And the journey is the most rewarding part.”
Will taught me a great lesson that day. He is absolutely right. This business is about the journey we all embark on each and every day. It is about the people we come in contact with and build lasting relationships with. I hope that as we ramp up our level of activity and effort in 2013 that we will all remember to enjoy the journey.
All the best,
