Cruise for Gold Qualifier—Ryan Barrios
Congratulations to Ryan Barrios from Carlsbad, California, on qualifying for the Cruise for Gold trip! Here’s what he had to say about qualifying for the cruise…
“Qualifying for Cruise for Gold means a lot to my family and me. We have been in the company since it started in 2005. My dad has done very well; but, now that I have qualified for Cruise for Gold, the reality of how great a company MonaVie really is has kicked in. It is inspiring and motivating to know that I have a company that’s going to reward me when I do well. I look forward to a long future with MonaVie!
“One of the most important day-to-day business activities that I did to help me qualify for the trip was staying in touch with those closest to me who could inspire and motivate me to do my best. If I lose motivation, then I lose my will to work; and, in turn, I lose the respect and trust of those I work with. So, it’s important to me to stay in the game by staying in touch with those who I can motivate and who motivate me in exchange.
“I try to stick to the fundamentals: stay focused, keep a positive attitude, and don’t give up. In anything in life, including business, one has to stick to what he knows how to do best and let that work for him. Everyone has their different business techniques and methodologies. I believe that once you find something that works for you, you just have to keep on trying until you see results, all the while remembering not to get comfortable or complacent.
“Don’t give up! Someone once told me never to give up just because something gets hard. Most of the time, people give up when they are so close to the top of whatever hill they are trying to climb. And usually, the results they are hoping for are right on the other side of the hump. My advice to anybody seeking to qualify for Cruise for Gold is don’t give up! You are closer to your goals than you think. To give up and turn around would put to waste all of the hard work and effort you have put in. It takes more effort to give up, turn back, and have to start all over again once you realize that you should have just kept on going from where you were. If you keep going now, you will only be moving closer and closer to whatever goals you have in mind. You can achieve this! It just takes time and sweat, and that’s what makes it all worth it. Anything in life that is worth something is never easy!
“I have several people in mind that I would like to help qualify for the trip. I hope I can set an example to them by the way I work so they can see what it takes to achieve the Cruise for Gold trip. My job as a sponsor and a leader is to help motivate, to provide vision, and to push people toward their goals—and to do all of this with compassion and care for their well being and to see them gain financial freedom and physical health!
“I’ve been on MonaVie trips before, and they never cease to amaze me! They are filled with lots of fun and plenty of adventure. I am looking forward to building new relationships, gaining training tools to help me succeed in my business, and having a ton of fun while doing it!”
