Dream Stealers, Killers, Builders and Givers

Dream: an ambition, to consider something practical or feasible, to invent; Dreamer: A visionary, an idealist. 

All of us have dreams, but why are so many of us, only dreaming and not doing?  There could be several answers, but one may be the people around you.  There are four types of people in your life:  Dream Stealers, Dream Killers, Dream Builders, and Dream Givers.  The number of people in each category may lead you to your answer of why you don’t go after dreams. 

A Dream Stealer is someone who makes subtle suggestions that cause you to doubt yourself.  “I don’t know why you are working 60 hours a week, you aren’t getting anything out of it” or “Why are you working out, all you do is complain!”  Now let’s talk about the Dream Killer.

Dream Killers are those who have a huge effect on you.  They keep pushing and pushing until they get to you and you give up.  “I don’t know why you are spending all that money on a gym membership, you have tried it 10 times and have failed every time,” or “it hasn’t worked yet, it won’t work this time either!” 

Then there are the Dream Builders who know you are called unto excellence, they hold you accountable and they support you.  “I know how much you want to lose that 80 pounds, and I know you can do it this time!” or “You are so deserving of that promotion, and I know how hard you are working to get it, just keep it up.” 

Then there are the Dream Givers.  Dream Givers are special individuals who inspire you to dream.  They want you to reach your full potential and can see what you are capable of, even if you can’t; they keep you wanting more – they speak the dreams into you.  There aren’t a lot of Dream Givers out there, but when you come across one, you will know who they are. 

“The advantage of a network marketing business is that not only does the business provide a great business education, the business often provides a whole new world of friends- friends who are going in the same direction as you and share the same core values as you do. To me, that kind of friendship is priceless.”  Robert Kiyosaki, The Business School for People Who Like Helping People

And remember, “If you aim at nothing, you’ll hit it every time.”

Trivani Sponsors 20 New Cataract Surgeries

On Saturday, March 15, the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation performed a number of eye surgeries in Cebu, in the Philippines, as part of their Argao Medical Mission. The Trivani Foundation’s local representative, Erwin Boiser, helped identify many of the patients helped by the mission as part of a free medical screening Trivani sponsored a few months ago. Erwin was on hand Saturday to observe and help with the medical mission, and reported that medicine and supplies provided by Trivani helped 20 people regain their vision and once again become healthy, productive members of society. Some of these people have suffered from cataracts for more than 40 years, and showered Erwin with thanks. He passes that thanks on to all of you, because it is your hard work that makes projects like this possible. Keep up the good work!

Two New School Projects in Kenya

The Trivani Foundation recently donated building materials for several latrines for the Jaffery Primary School. These latrines will help sustain sanitary conditions for students as they gain an education. In addition, the Trivani Foundation will aid the Chanzou Primary School in finishing the construction of a new classroom. The project was begun by the school administration and the parents, but the Trivani Foundation・s involvement will help speed up the project so these students can enjoy their new building sooner.

Sleep Away Signs of Stress with Trivani Night Repair Crème

Next time you hit a deadline at work or find yourself worrying over a weekend getaway, take a good look at your skin. You may be surprised to find that it looks nearly as stressed as you feel. This connection between your emotions and the condition of your skin is no coincidence. When we feel frazzled, our bodies begin pumping out more cortisol, a natural hormone that can eventually lead to rougher skin, premature aging, and increased vulnerability to free radicals.

Not many of us can avoid a stressful period here and there, but when you do feel stress, it need not be etched in every line of your face. Helichrysum Italicum Extract, also known as Everlasting Extract, has been shown to inhibit the damaging effects of cortisol-so you can look great, regardless of how you feel. The extract has also been used for centuries as a traditional medicine for irritated and inflamed skin.*

Trivani’s Night Repair Crème contains Everlasting Extract, so take a deep breath, dab on a bit of our crème, and sleep the night away. You may not recognize yourself in the morning, with skin that looks as fresh as the new day.
