Are You Getting Your Daily Dose of Vitamin D?

Today I am grateful for Vitamin D- Discipline.

Many are vitamin D deficient and all of us sometimes.

With too little of it, we are victims of circumstances or at least the of our previous poor decisions; but with an abundance of Vitamin D, we can reverse our direction to one more favorable and our actions to those more supportive. With it we can overcome adversity, defeat any obstacle and accomplish worthy goals.

The best thing about vitamin D is that it is a truly renewable resource! In fact, the more you use, the more your mind and body develop! So today I am grateful for vitamin D and to using it more for more every day in every way!

I posted that on my facebook page yesterday. It was a revelation I had after my morning meditation, affirmations, visualization and exercise and I composed the post when I got back from that morning workout.

It’s true and it’s important. But since then, I have been thinking about the fact that Vitamin D can serve us even better when taken daily as part of an attitude and performance boosting cocktail.

  Vitamin D is critical, but only fully effective when combined with the rest of the Blackbelt Leadership Excellence combination:

·        Vitamin A is for Attitude- specifically a positive attitude of gratitude and expectancy; one that sees the opportunity in every problem and the potential in every moment and every day.

·        Vitamin B for Belief! You need to believe not only that it’s possible, but that it’s possible for you!

·        Vitamin C is for Courage. Along with the other important C nutrients of commitment, confidence and character, Vitamin C allows us to move boldly in the direction of our dreams and take the actions needed to turn them into realities!

·        Combine these with our proprietary V formula- not V for victory, though this cocktail will ultimatly create that, but V for Vision! Our vision formula will help you and those you care about create Vision and Goals that point us in the direction that, when combined with vitamins A,B,C and D, propel us towards our dreams!

Combine all of these and, when taken persistently over time, you have a cocktail guaranteed to take you to the desires you have for your life!

We have trained and certified professionals that can help you develop and apply Vitamin D and the rest of the cocktail! Call 813-948-4844 or click on one of the links below!
