A good leader knows how to serve; there you have the secret of a great, strong leader... the ability to serve. From the inception of CorVive--as blueprints were drawn up, as storyboards grew, as products were perfected, a mission statement developed and it was simple: love, serve, and care. Those three principles were so strong in Jeremy Fouts mind that he knew that they would become the guiding ethics of CorVive. For years Jeremy instilled leadership skills in those around him; instrumental to those skills was the ability to serve. If someone didn’t have it in their heart to be of service to humanity, Fouts found it very hard to help them overcome other obstacles that were critical to becoming an effective leader. He knew that paramount to leadership is service. The cornerstone value of service has historically proven its requisite time and time again. From times of war to times of peace, from bedtime stories to true autobiographies, whether rich or poor, the badge of leadership rested on the stripes of those that could shoulder the significance of service. If you have the innate ability to serve your fellow man, then you will have the ability to inspire within them the ability to trust you, to become loyal to you, and to treat you the way that you treat them. Within the code of service also lies the golden rule of life, treat others the way that you would like to be treated. This principle is tested and true. “If ever you are struggling with doubt, depression, or stagnation I challenge you to serve,” once stated CorVive Founder Jeremy Fouts, “this simple act is the quickest cure to almost all that you might struggle with in life. When you are in the service of others ,you immediately begin to feel the ease of burdens that hold you back from developing as a leader.” Even the most brilliant mind in modern history, Albert Einstein once said, “It is high time that the idea of success should be replaced with the ideal of service.” The most well known genius of our time was able to draw a straight line between service and success--you truly cannot have one without having the ability to do the other. Now that you know the secret, try it out! The next time you are feeling low, search out an opportunity to serve! Opportunities are all around us, all the time. And when you do find service as a remedy to your despondency, remember how it makes you feel. Understand that through service you are refining your ability to lead and create a better world. Your ability to apply the golden rule to your life will repay you in dividends. Let your servant heart lead you to your path of success. The cat is out of the bag and the ground is fertile with ways to serve. Give it a shot.
As we wrap up our RENEW event I take time to reflect on all of the amazing transformations our CorVive family is going through. At a thought-provoking time when everyone has been going through different stages in their lives, I realize again that change is real; and as I have said before if there is one thing that is constant in our lives, it is change. Sometimes change can be the hardest thing we face in life, but if we can harness the power of that change and let it strengthen our resolve to do good, we can affect the world in wondrous ways. Fall represents change in a way and is a powerful season. Fall is a time that is right in sync with why I decided RENEW would be a good theme for our event. The thing that I am most excited about is the rumbling of momentum that we are beginning to feel across the board. There is a feeling of exponential success that is beginning to take shape. We saw more rank advancements than ever, we witnessed health transformations that were nothing short of miraculous, and we listened to people explain life changing stories that were significant in every way. Let us use those feelings of positivity and harness them as our catalyst for success moving forward. Between now and our Catalyst event in January we will see more growth and success than we ever have before at CorVive. We understand that we are very fortunate to be in the position that we are currently experiencing as a company. We offer best-in-class products that are fine-tuned to be exceptional on every level. Our executive team is incredibly devoted to ensuring that our field leaders experience the most success possible. Rather than drudging through business like an aged dinosaur, our youth (being just two years old) gives us the strength and it gives us a fresh perspective that in turn allows us to be on the cutting edge. This is exactly where I want us to be. We have so many things going for us, most importantly, it is our humble objective to make sure that you get the chance to love, serve and care as we all go through change and growth together. I look back at my experience when momentum took livelihoods to a new level, and back to the beginning of my career, when product advancements were exciting and new; and I get the familiar feeling of accomplishment that accompanies those characteristics. CorVive is renewed and we stand ready to love, serve and care for all those that we can. We have teamed up with the most amazing people in the world that have those same values at heart. This union will serve as rocket fuel as CorVive pushes new levels of success and for that I am grateful. Hang on and enjoy that ride because we want all of you to be part of the magic that is on the horizon. [...]
