Dedication in the Face of Adversity blogged by David & Bianca Lisonbee

We never cease to be inspired by you, our incredible distributors. Some of you may know that Gold International Diamond Eiichi Uemura from Japan has been going through some serious health challenges. He suffered a stroke some time ago, and has been hospitalized ever since. As you can imagine, it has been a very difficult time for his family, and especially his wife, Keiko. We were both so impressed with the fact that Keiko and their daughter Manami are building Eiichi’s 4Life business while he is unable to do so. We were also especially touched by their desire to still attend the upcoming BIG Convention 2010 in September of this year.

Keiko made this comment to us: “Our family believes that showing affirmation in action is important. Many people know in their minds that something is good to do, or they have a belief of what they think is ideal, but we think it’s just as important to act on your beliefs and share them with others.” Keiko and Manami feel that by going to convention, they are showing the strength of their family’s commitment to 4Life. They truly want to honor Eiichi in this manner.

This is another example to us that truly successful people don’t look for excuses as to why they can’t do something. Instead, they find ways to accomplish tasks, in spite of the challenges and obstacles in their way. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Uemura family and we commend them for their dedication, courage, and faith.
