Xyngfest 2020 went virtual this year and while we missed seeing our Xyngular family in person, we had a phenomenal event filled with inspiring and educational speakers! We’re sharing a few of the highlights here—there were so many wonderful presentations that we couldn’t fit them all in, so that’s why you need to make your plan to attend Xyngfest 2021 next year!
CEO Russ Fletcher Kicked Off Xyngfest.
“Our theme for this entire event is ‘What’s Next?’
We’ve talked for years about what we want to be as a company. We don’t just want to be a successful company. We actually want to put a dent in the universe. We want to make a mark.
We want to make a difference in as many people’s lives as possible.
If we go back to the basics, what is the most basic element of what we do? It’s the 8 Day. It’s that one person, having that one moment of looking down at the scale and feeling triumphant. We do an 8-Day jumpstart. We do it better than anybody else. Our products stack up better than anyone else in the world. I just completed an 8-day, and I’ve lost 10 pounds.*
It was a moment of triumph. We want to give that moment of triumph to as many people as possible. That’s why we are a network marketing company. It’s intentional. It’s the way our program works.”
The multi-day event was PACKED with stories and examples of how passionate leaders, distributors, and company executives are about Xyngular.
Senior Vice President of Finance, Josh Gagon
“You will often hear Curtis Call say that at Xyngular, we are a distributor success company. Our job at the corporate office is to make sure that you guys can be as successful as possible. We’re always asking ‘How can we make our distributors as successful as possible? How can we help you, so that you don’t have to worry about things and focus instead on your business and have success?’”
There were some important themes that carried through Xyngfest this year. An important one was LEADERSHIP.
Senior Vice President of Marketing, Wendy Garrison
“Success does not come without struggle. I never moved on from my struggles, I moved through them, and I took them with me.
I did not come this far on my own. I stood on the shoulders of others that had been through hard things. These people had battle wounds and scars. I want to be that person now for others. I want to have shoulders that others can stand on, so they can have clarity as they look through those trenches. These are my people.
I want you to look at ways to let people in. I want you to prepare yourself to be willing to help others. You need to prepare yourself for what we have in store for you. We are ready, are you? It’s time to get ready. Find your people and lead them through the trenches. Hand in hand, arm in arm, because we X together.”
CSO, Curtis Call
“The people around me start to form who I am. So are you surrounding yourself with the right people? Have you put yourself in a position to be near other leaders? Are you modeling what you see from top leaders and top performers at Xyngular? It is critical to your development as a leader that you keep yourself in near proximity to and learning from those great leaders.”
Another hugely popular topic that Xyngfest was HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL. What our speakers shared could fill a book and this is just a small section.
“There are three things that I really stick to, and that I strongly believe in. I love the core values of the company, and I think they go hand in hand with these three things.
The first thing is, I always do the right thing. It’s so easy to always pick the easiest way to do something. Doing the right thing is not always the easiest thing to do. It means honesty, integrity, it means transparency.
The second thing that I am so passionate about is investing in others.
The last thing is to always care for people.”
Executive, Kristi VD.
“Let’s talk about schedules. How busy are you? Anyone else feel the pressure of everyday life? The truth is that we are all busy, so we need to prioritize. The most important things in life are scheduled. You need to schedule your Xyngular time in, or it will get pushed to the side. In order to run a successful business, you have to put in the work! If you treat this like a hobby, it’s going to pay you like a hobby. If you treat this like a business, it’s going to pay you like a business.
People who join Xyngular don’t just want to sell a product they want to be a part of something. They want a connection. Bring them into the Xyngular family and help them stay connected.”
“This is about not reinventing the wheel. In my first 8 days I lost more than 8 pounds, and Ursula encouraged me to post about my experience. I kept losing weight and I kept following her example. After 3 months and a ½ months, I had lost 30 pounds and I had earned my first trip.*
Over these three years, I have learned a few things. As our team grew, we tried a few things. I realized we were trying to reinvent the wheel and we were drowning ourselves. We went back to simple steps that could be duplicated by everyone. We cleared away the clutter and we kept it simple, and guess what, it worked.”
“This opportunity can work for all of you. All you have to do is focus on the activities that will get you there. Give yourself a goal and give yourself a timeline to hit your goals. Write a date down. Tell yourself you are going to help so many people.”
It should be no surprise that a virtual event in 2020 would cover the topic of FACING CHALLENGES.
CSO, Curtis Call
“It’s not about willpower, it’s about why power. It is about mindset. Do we have a positive mindset to help get us through the storms of life? When the storm comes we can say it’s rainy, it’s wet, I’m going to duck inside. Or we can say — this water is going to help clean the area, fertilize the earth, and water plants. Do we look for the positive? Perception controls our reality. Do we take negative experiences and find the positive within them?
It is not the event itself that fuels our suffering, but in choosing our response that dictates whether we remain in peace, or if we will get caught up in the storm.”
“Choosing worthiness is your superpower. Let go of who you think you are supposed to be and embrace who you are today.
There are three key ways to make this happen.
Pay attention to your thoughts, your mind is powerful. The thoughts that pass through your mind are responsible for almost everything that happens in your life. Not all thoughts are equal. Thoughts that you think once or twice can't do much but your reoccurring thoughts and the ones you repeat ultimately become your reality.
Focus on what you have and don't compare yourself to others. You either put yourself above or below them and neither place is a good place to be. Comparison makes you live a life that's not yours. You're comparing your behind the scenes really hard stressful moments to someone's highlight-reel. Comparing takes away our joy. Embrace where you are now with each and every aspect of your life and be grateful and proud that you have come this far. Give yourself more credit.
Remember who you are. You are worthy, you're enough, and you are loved just the way you are right now. Give yourself the credit and give yourself permission to recognize your progress and focus less on the distance you still have left to travel.”
“This summer I had a decision to make. When everything was going on I had to decide for myself, what was I going to do and how was I going to get us through this. I decided my job was to lead. I rallied my team together, we made a game plan, and we spread out all the good things we could to our team. We looked at things in a positive way. We were able to filter this down through the rest of our team, and guess what happened. We thrived. We grew our leaders, we grew our businesses. We stayed positive. I knew my team needed me to be the best leader I could be.
Your team needs to have confidence in you to know that you WILL lead them through any situation. Your job as a leader is to build faith. Faith in the system, the comp plan, the products, and in Xyngular.”
“Nobody has the power to put you on the sidelines. You put yourself on the sidelines. but for what reason are you standing on the sidelines, not living your life, and not being the best person that you can be?
I was making excuses a lot about everything. “I don't have the time” is the adult equivalent for “my dog ate my homework”. You're never too old to be the best person that you can be.
You can't fill somebody's cup when your cup is empty. You just can't. You are worthy, you are enough. Stop with the excuses. I was at a job that I was miserable at. I was taking away from my family too because of it. I decided to step up and become the leader that my team deserves.
Push past all of the pain and all of the hurt. Think about what keeps you going. That may be the only thing that is going to lead you to succeed. If you're sitting on the sidelines, it's time to get off because this is a winning team and this is a winning game so get off the sidelines and get into this game.”
“Think about where you are, how far you’ve come, and where you are going. We sometimes see the successes of others and wonder what might be wrong with us. This makes us wonder what’s next for us. You may have had the thought that it would be easier to quit rather than fail. We look around at others and see how “easy” it must be for them when we don’t know the whole story. This can lead us to look for solutions in the wrong places. These are all landmines that we need to avoid.
The only way to fail is to quit.”
“This moment is a moment that has been 8 years in the making. This looks different from how it looked in my head, but I am still excited to be here sharing my story about persistence with you. My story starts back in 2012 when I was tired, overweight, and uncomfortable in my own skin, and something had to change.
I lost 6 pounds and 7 1.2 inches in my first 8 days. I earned my Quick Start bonus within 2 weeks, and I hit Manager within my first month. I thought it was easy!*
This journey can be very hard. Your mental toughness will be challenged. If you lose though, who wins? Build that solid foundation. Commit to being coachable. Commit to a minimum of 2 years. Commit to working daily even when you don’t feel like it. Don’t forget to believe in yourself! Work harder on yourself than you do on your business. Make personal development a part of your routine. Mindset is so important.
Don’t quit on your customers, don’t quit on your team, and don’t quit on yourself.”
Xyngfest included an amazing presentation by special guest, Darren Hardy, author of The Compound Effect. Here’s a small excerpt from his Xyngfest presentation.
“Success is earned by hard freaking work.
Stop looking for the quick fix for success, happiness, and wealth. It doesn’t exist. Make the difficult, smaller decisions.
Success does not come down to what you know, it comes down to what you DO with what you know.
Success is a result of small, seemingly insignificant moment-to-moment choices. Choices are the first step to rewiring your success operating system. Small choices add up to big results.
What kind of Xyngular distributor do you want to be? Write it down and make a detailed list of this person. What kind of person would they want to follow or respect? Go about becoming the person that you described. Birds of a feather flock together. It’s not a pursuing process, it’s a becoming process. Start small.
Creating a new habit takes 300 repetitions. Will power will not work and is not something you can always rely on. So what do you need? WHY power. When your why is white-hot with a burning desire, nothing can stop you.
This is the last step in rewiring your operating system. It’s going to take time for the compound effect to take effect. It’s not about how fast you start, it matters how long you last. Consistency wins every single race, every single time.
Make the decision to draw a line in the sand and not go back to how you were before today. Make a resolve to become more. Climb the mountains that you know you need to climb.
Stand heroic at the top of your mountain.”
