Why do we work?

working people

Now this is a question that may be different for different people but I think in general there is a lot of common ground

WHY WORK?

When you ask people why they work, a lot of them will say they’re ‘only in it for the money’. When you work for money, you can be financially independent, and have some control over your life.

Sometimes money truly is the only reason a person works. But most people have more substantial reasons for working. For example:

  • They like to spend their days doing something they’re good at.
  • They like being productive.
  • Other people need their skills, and they feel obliged to supply them.

What if you didn’t work and you had every day to yourself? You could choose to go to the beach, watch television, go to the movies, go shopping, read books, visit friends, visit places of interest, go out for meals, play sport…

This all sounds wonderful, but you’d need at least some money to do most of these things. Relaxing and doing what you please is great for a holiday, but after a while the pleasure can wear off and you can feel aimless and bored.

Then there is the other side there are lots of people that make lots of money but they do not have the time to do the things they value most ie. spend time with the family, be part of the growing up of your children etc etc

WORK AND YOUR VALUES

The benefits you get from paid and unpaid work are strongly linked to what your values are. When you know what your values are regarding work, you can:

  • work out what you hope to achieve through working—what your overall ambitions are
  • set meaningful goals for yourself
  • choose jobs that will satisfy you in ways that are deeper than your ‘hip pocket’
  • understand why you feel dissatisfied in a job that doesn’t fit with your values.

The two main reasons that people work are:

  • to perform rewarding and meaningful activities
  • for companionship.

‘Rewarding’ and ‘meaningful’ work is work that allows you to:

  • fulfil most of your material needs
  • meet your financial obligations
  • feel as if you fit into and contribute to society
  • feel a sense of well-being and accomplishment
  • meet and interact with people of different backgrounds and cultures.

Conduct your own research about why you work

‘Companionship’ at work means having continued, shared interaction with other people, including sharing the rewards of a job well done, whether they be a sales bonus or a commendation from the managing director.

JOBSATISFACTION

Rewarding and meaningful work + companionship = job satisfaction

People get job satisfaction when their work:

  • pays them enough to fulfil their most important needs
  • pays them fairly for the work they do
  • looks after them, providing a protective environment and ensuring their safety as they work.
  • gives them a social life—they belong to a team and interact regularly with different people
  • makes them feel good about themselves—they can see themselves gaining experience, expertise, status and acknowledgement by their colleagues and superiors
  • fulfils them—it gives them a sense of personal achievement by presenting them with new challenges, helping them grow and be creative.

Find the company that satisfies them all:

  • Good compensation
  • Helping other people achieve their goals
  • Have a good social life
  • Do some charity
  • Looks after your health
  • all this sums up to a lot of job satisfaction

I found a company that ticks all my boxes which is NuSkin:

  • It has the best compensation plan in the industry
  • The business model is built to help other people achieve their goals
  • By doing the above you will be interacting with a lot of people from a lot of different cultures and back grounds since it is an international company.
  • It is linked in with different charities their main one is ‘Nourish the Children’, http://www.nuskin.com/en_US/culture/nourish_the_children/charity_partners.html
  • Using the products is proven to benefit your health
  • It rewards all the milestones you make in your business

Child health

IMG_0278

My biggest priority in life is the well being of my children. It is my responsibility to make sure they are healthy and happy. This is in my case achieved by exposing them to different  activities ie. sports, having them socially active, good education and making sure they have the correct nutrition. Now the last part is not always easy. The diet of a child is extremely important so we need to look after that. In the fast paced world and all the products on the market it becomes very likely that we are not getting enough (yes us adults also!!) nutrients in, so supplementation becomes a must. Now what I have found is that all the products on the shelf have no guarantees that they will actually do your child any good, so it becomes guess work. The reason why I got involved with Nuskin is because they are the only company that can measure your health and guarantee improvement after taking the product for 2 months. Now this unique in the industry. Wouldn’t you like to take charge of your child’s health and take the guess work out of it?

AgeLOC® ANTI-AGING RESEARCH

NU SKIN CONCLUDES BANNER YEAR FOR ITS

Ageloc Logo 

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.
