Lululemon Manifesto

Lululemon is a company that originated in Vancouver. They sell really comfortable clothes, mostly for yoga and exercise. The following is their manifesto. I love it.

~Drink FRESH water and as much water as you can. Water flushes unwanted toxins and keeps your brain sharp.
~Observe a plant before and after watering and relate the benefits to your body and brain.
~Coke, Pepsi and all other pops will be known as the cigarettes of the future. Colas are NOT a substitute for water. Colas are just another cheap drug made to look great by advertising.
~Be yoga. Breathing has you live in the moment and stretching releases toxins from your muscles.
~Do yoga so you can remain active in physical sports as you age.
~Listen, listen, listen, and then ask strategic questions.
~SWEAT once a day to regenerate your skin.
~Compliments from the heart elevate another person’s spirit and will often result in an encouraging word for someone else ... a domino effect.
~Your outlook on life is a direct reflection of how much you like yourself.
~Life is full of setbacks. Success is determined by how you handle setbacks.
~Write down your short and long term GOALS four times a year. 2 personal, 2 business and one health goal. A university found only 3 percent of the students had written goals. 20 years later, the same 3 percent were wealthier than the other 97% combined.
~You ALWAYS have choice and the conscious brain can only hold one thought at a time. Choose a positive thought.
~Communication is COMPLICATED. Each person is raised in a different family with a different definition of each word.
~Jealousy works the opposite way you want it to.
~Nature wants us to be mediocre because we have a greater chance to survive and reproduce. ~Mediocre is as close to the bottom as it is to the top. Be creative. Do one thing a day that scares you.
~Take various vitamins. You never know what small mineral can eliminate the bottleneck to everlasting health.
~Dance, sing, floss and travel.
~Do not use cleaning chemicals on your kitchen counters. Try vinegar and lemon. Someone will inevitably make a sandwich on your counter.
~Just like you did not know what an orgasm was before you had one, nature does not let you know how great children are until you have them. Children are the orgasm of life.
~Friends are more important than money. Don’t trust that an old age pension will be sufficient.
~Live near the ocean and inhale the pure salt air that flows over the water. Vancouver will do nicely. Stress is related to 99% of all illnesses.
~One hour of aerobic exercise will release endorphins to regenerate cells and offset stress.
~A daily hit of athletic induced endorphins will give you the power to make better decisions and help you be at peace with yourself.
~Wake up and realize you are surrounded by amazing friends.
~lululemon athletica was formed to provide people with components to live a longer, healthier and more fun life. If we can produce products to keep people active and stress free, we believe the world will be a better place.
~Do it now. The world is changing AT SUCH A RAPID rate that waiting to implement changes will leave you two steps behind. DO IT NOW, DO IT NOW!
