On his death bed, Alexander the Great summoned his generals and told them his three ultimate wishes:
- The best doctors should carry his coffin;
- The wealth he has accumulated (money, gold, precious stones etc.) should be scattered along the procession to the cemetery; and
- His hands should be let loose, hanging outside the coffin for all to see!
One of his generals, who was surprised by these unusual requests, asked Alexander to explain.
Here is what Alexander the Great had to say:
1. I want the best doctors to carry my coffin to demonstrate that, in the face of death, even the best doctors in the world have no power to heal.
2. I want the road to be covered with my treasure so that everybody sees that material wealth acquired on earth, stays on earth.
3. I want my hands to swing in the wind, so that people understand that we come to this world empty handed and we leave this world empty handed after the most precious treasure of all is exhausted, and that is TIME.
4. We do not take to our grave any material wealth, although our good deeds can be our travelers’ cheques. TIME is our most precious treasure because it is LIMITED. We can produce more wealth, but we cannot produce more time.
5. When we give someone our time, we actually give a portion of our life that we will never take back. Our time is our life!
6. So the best present that you can give to your family and friends, is your TIME.
Now what happens mostly we postpone the giving of time to the people we love the most in order to do other things. So my advise is to find a business model to build while you are still working. Build that business and you will be able to spend the time with your loved ones. Leave me a reply if you would like to find out more on how. The longer you postpone this the more likely it becomes that you will have the regrets that Alexander the Great had.
NU SKIN CONCLUDES BANNER YEAR FOR ITS
PROVO, Utah—Feb. 21, 2012—Nu Skin Enterprises Inc., (NYSE:NUS) today announced the conclusion of another banner year for its ageLOC® research. Nu Skin accelerated its anti-aging research in 2011 with more than 30 scientific presentations, posters and articles at various prestigious conferences and symposia around the world. Additionally, the company made further strides with the acquisition of LifeGen Technologies and its genetic database that is based on more than 30 years of anti-aging genetic research.
“2011 was a breakthrough year for us as we continued our ground-breaking ageLOC anti-aging genetic research that is opening new doors of understanding to the genetic source of aging and helping more people to live younger, longer,” said Joe Chang, Ph.D., Nu Skin chief scientific officer. “As we have presented our research around the world, we have been pleased with the favorable response we have received from the scientific community. Looking to 2012, we believe that the best is yet to come for ageLOC science.”
The company’s 2011 scientific presentations focused on its ageLOC science that enables Nu Skin to identify unique groups of genes specific to aging (referred to as Youth Gene Clusters or YGC) that influence aging and then target and reset them to more youthful patterns of activity. This latest scientific research has been incorporated into Nu Skin’s latest product releases including ageLOC® R2 and ageLOC® Galvanic Body Spa™.
2011 Scientific Highlights Include:
Acquisition of LifeGen Technologies, LLC
With the acquisition of LifeGen Technologies, Nu Skin now owns what it believes is one of the largest anti-aging databases in the world and has unrestricted access to LifeGen’s scientific data and findings developed over 30 years. Nu Skin is accelerating its anti-aging genetic research that continues to open doors of new understanding and is providing additional insights for product development. Already the company has felt the positive impact of this database as it incorporates these new insights into products under development for 2013, including solutions for weight management and overall youthspan.
ageLOC Research on Internal Aging
Mark Barlett, Ph.D., vice president of global research and development for Pharmanex nutrition products at Nu Skin, led his team to present several key findings at internationally recognized conferences. Highlights included being an invited speaker at the Second International Conference on Environmental Stressors in Biology and Medicine. Nu Skin presented findings on several topics at the conference including “A Unique Nutritional Formulation to Promote Cellular Protection and Purification Via Induction Of the Nrf2-mediated ARE/Phase II Detoxification Pathways” and “A Unique Blend of Natural Compounds With the Ability to Oppose Age-Related Changes in Gene Expression Related to Dysregulation of Removal of Cellular Debris, Cellular Detoxification, Antioxidant Protection and Inflammatory Balance.”
In addition, Pharmanex nutrition scientists also presented at the Linus Pauling Institute Diet and Optimum Health Conference on “A Systematic Approach to Evaluate and Rank Natural Ingredients Based on Their Ability to Oppose Age-Related Changes in Gene Expression.”
ageLOC Research on the Skin
Led by Helen Knaggs, Ph.D., vice president of global research and development for Nu Skin personal care products, the Nu Skin research and development team had several notable finding presented and published in 2011. An oral presentation shared at the 4th International Conference and Exhibition for Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods (Nov 2011) showed the effects of equol on human skin gene expression and protein synthesis. In addition, several scientific articles were published including one in the Dermatological Surgery (Dec. 2011), regarding an exploratory study to determine the association between assessed facial skin aging and plasma isoprostane levels in middle-aged Japanese women, and in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science (Feb. 2011) showing how functional YGCs can be regulated to reflect a more youthful gene expression profile.
New Patents for ageLOC® Galvanic Body Spa™
Throughout the development of ageLOC science, a number of patents have been licensed or filed to further protect the proprietary information and technology Nu Skin utilizes to develop ageLOC branded products. Nu Skin’s recently launched ageLOC® Galvanic Body Spa™ system uses patented self-adjusting galvanic currents with patent-pending pulsating technology to diminish the appearance of fat and cellulite to provide a slimmer, smoother, firmer appearance on the arms, abdomen, buttocks and thighs.

Are you looking to grow/start your Nu Skin business or just looking for reasons to be a little more excited when you get out of bed every morning. Maybe you want to launch a dream. Maybe you’ve worked up the courage to want to do something epic. Even if you haven’t shared that dream with anyone yet. Even if it’s still something private.
If you do have a secret dream, congratulations. Because a commitment to doing something great — something that makes us catch our breath a little — will take you farther than anything else will.
But you don’t build something epic just by getting a wild hair. Whatever you’re building — if it’s worthbuilding — you’ll go through three phases. (Dare, planning, Leap and after that enjoy the ride)
That dare is the big step. Once you’ve let yourself dream about something really big, the rest of it is logistics.
Whether you create your dream exactly the way you see it in your head isn’t the point. Daring is the point.
If you’re planning a jump from 39.000 meter that will take your body up to 1340 km/h in free fall … you’re going to need to do some planning.
The greater the mission, the more preparation you’re going to need.
You probably don’t know everything you need to know to make your breathtaking dream happen.
So educate yourself! And I will help you where you need it!
Your dream probably isn’t something you can do all at once. It will happen in stages. Figure out what those stages are.
Take practice jumps. Work out the problems that come up at 3000 meters before you climb to 39km
This is what most people call “the hard part.”, it actually is the fun part
This is what you’ll look back on later with great fondness and a hell of a grin on your face.
This is what pulls you out of bed in the morning so you can get started on the next milestone.
Solving problems, gaining knowledge, pushing out experiments … this is what being a human being is about. Enjoy it. Learn from it.
I hate the saying, “Leap, and the net will appear.”
That is a lousy maxim when you’re heading for the ground at over 1300 km/h
Build your net. Study your net. Understand your net.
Felix Baumgartner and Red Bull started working on their legendary space jump in 2005, and didn’t actually make the jump until 2012.
It took seven years to perfect the net. To work out the kinks and understand all the angles.
Realize that the net can never give you 100% certainty.
Jump anyway. It’s a hell of a ride. I will be there with you!
Who doesn’t want to Feel and Look Younger?
The Galvanic Spa is yet another AgeLoc product that has been doing wonders. There are so many before and after pictures around so I will only add some.
Even the celebs are using it like Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Simon Cowell, Terri Seymour, Toni Braxton and the list goes on………
How does the Galvanic Spa System II work?
The Galvanic Spa facial treatment works in two steps: 1- Pre-Treat Facial Gel and 2- Treatment Facial Gel with ageLOC. During the first step, both the Pre-Treat Gel and the Galvanic Instrument are negatively charged. Since like charges repel each other, the negative charge of the Galvanic Instrument repels or pushes the Pre-Treat Gel onto the skin. The Pre-Treat Gel contains ingredients that soothe, calm, and purify the skin. The purifying ingredients bind with impurities in the skin causing them to have a negative charge.
During the second step, both the Treatment Gel and the Galvanic Instrument are positively charged. These positive charges repel each other, helping deliver the Treatment Gel onto the skin. The Treatment Gel contains ingredients, including the proprietary ageLOC blend, that help to slow free radical production in the epidermis, help skin recover from stress, and promote cellular energy. The positively charged Galvanic Instrument also attracts the remaining negatively charged impurities from the Pre-Treat cycle, drawing them out of the skin to give you a fresher, more vibrant look.
The charges interact in a similar way with the active ingredients in all Galvanic Spa compatible products.
