Season’s Greeting from MonaVie Founder Dallin A. Larsen
Dear MonaVie Family,
I love this line in the Christmas carol “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day,” Peace on earth good will to men. American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote this carol amidst not only great national turmoil in the form of the Civil War, but also amidst great personal trials and tragedy involving members of his family. It’s a solemn, even haunting, hymn that acknowledges the reality of the times but that concludes with the bells carrying renewed hope for peace among mankind.
As each year passes, I like to think that I don’t just get older; I like to think that I get a little bit wiser, too. And, as I’ve reflected this year on what’s most important to me, I’ve come to the conclusion that it is the inner peace that comes from knowing who you are and whose you are. We as individuals, or even collectively, may never be able to effect enough change to ensure world peace at all times, but we can strive to achieve inner peace for ourselves, and our families. For what is wealth without balance, family without harmony, notoriety without privacy, health without purpose? So many things in life are here for our enjoyment, but without inner peace, how beneficial are they, really?
This epiphany, if you will, gave me pause to ask myself, how is MonaVie contributing to greater peace on earth and good will toward man? My thoughts went immediately to our motto of A More Meaningful Life. At corporate, when making a decision, we train employees to ask themselves: Will this contribute to A More Meaningful Life for someone? And if the answer is “no,” then we don’t do it. If the answer is “yes,” we can move forward with confidence. I invite you to apply this principle to your life, for the purpose of achieving greater inner peace.
I might interject briefly here that I am very excited for what the New Year will bring for MonaVie in North America. We’ve recently concluded a series of year-end planning meetings, and I believe we have a solid strategy in place that will bring revitalized opportunity to existing distributors and brand new opportunities that will attract entirely new demographics to the business. I’ve also met with many distributors over the past few months. I can see that many of your dreams are being realized, and that many still are counting on MonaVie to help make their dreams come true. I want you to know from me personally that we work every day to provide you with the products and opportunities—including the MORE Project—that you need to live A More Meaningful Life through MonaVie, and that we will continue doing so.
On this December 25th, as you hear the bells on Christmas Day, remember the message of this glorious carol…that despite tragedy, loss, and even warfare, there is within most of us the hope and wish for “peace on earth, good will to men!”
I wish each of you a very Merry Christmas. May the coming year of 2014 be filled with family, good times, good friends, and good health! And peace on earth.
Merry Christmas to all,
Dallin A. Larsen
Founder and Chairman
