I can’t say enough good about the teams I have in my life.
From my life’s mate/teammate Nicki, to our three wonderful children, to the Pop Warner football team I coach to the excellent team here at Garden of Life—all are amazing.
Teamwork really does make the dream work! I’ve seen it firsthand.
Speaking of teams. . . I always enjoy being a part of something that goes beyond myself. In fact, it’s a privilege to join forces with others in order to make a bigger impact in people’s health, well-being and lives. That’s why I have no problem supporting those who share a similar message as I do.
A while back, I—along with other health experts—was asked to join my friend, Tracey Burnett. Tracey lives “across the pond” in the United Kingdom and hosts the Hedonistic Health Handful. In her series, Tracey presents 13 awesome interviews that you won’t want to miss. If you're interested, you can find out more about Tracey and this health series at http://traceyburnett.com/join.
I had the opportunity to discuss the importance of high-quality, nutrient-rich food on Tracey’s series—and, of course, that’s something I’m extremely passionate about. You’ll also hear from other experts, however, including:
• Rich German, who tells you about a simple morning routine for good health
• Johnny Bowden, on how to boost your energy levels
• Connie Bennett, on how to kick your sugar habit
• Annmarie Gianni, on how to achieve glowing, vibrant skin
As I agreed to be a part of Tracey’s series, I recalled several “team” quotes, and I think it’s wise to revisit them every now and then—just to reinforce that we’re in this together. Here are a few of them:
Individual commitment to a group effort—that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work. Vince Lombardi
The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don't play together, the club won't be worth a dime. Babe Ruth
There is no "i" in team but there is in win. Michael Jordan
Teamwork—it’s an “all hands on deck” endeavor, or it just doesn’t work.
