Vida Divina, a global direct marketer of nutritional and healthy lifestyle products, announced today that Manuel Wilkins has obtained the rank of Diamond.
There is a framed photograph that hangs over Vida Divina’s newest Diamond Manuel Wilkins’s desk. The photo is of Albert Einstein and the saying reads
“You have to learn the rules of the game, then play better than everyone else”.
Clearly, Manuel has taken that quote literally. Manuel lives in Fresno, California with his three daughters, ages 11, 16 and 17. He immigrated from Mexico when he was 24 years old and since then, he has held a wide range of jobs to support himself and his children, including a construction worker, truck driver and a fruit picker before Vida Divina.
Manuel tells a story that had dramatic impact on his life, one that has driven him to succeed ever since.
“One day At my worst moment of my life, I picked up my daughter from school and on the way home we passed by a McDonalds. My daughter was hungry and asked to stop for a hamburger. After reaching into my pocket, I realized that I was unable to afford even this meager request of a Dollar burger.
How could I explain to my baby that I was broke, I cried and promised myself I would never put my daughters through this again”
Although his heart was broken, his determination and will to succeed was now on like never before, and the fire burns even today. Manuel’s destiny was about to change from that day forward.
Jose Luis Pastrana, also a Diamond, tells us:
“I had always approached Manuel about many Network Marketing businesses and Manuel had always laughed at me and shot me down for years, but the day after he could not buy that burger for his daughter, he approached me in the fields where we pick fruit and asked me to tell him about the opportunity I was in…
I instantly stopped working and explained the plan. He joined me and since that day we have worked together”
He found his way to into Network Marketing which in turn led him to the man that he attributes to changing his life, to his mentor Armand Puyolt, the person who never stoped talking about a better way Jose Luis Pastrana and Ada Caballero who has always been there for him.
Since then, Manuel’s life has taken a 180 degree turn towards the positive. But with all his success he has never wavered in his devotion and commitment to his people.
“I made myself a promise ‘to always give more than I receive’ and to ‘always honor the work and effort by those around him, because he knows what it‘s like at the bottom’ and thats how I work every day”
He is profound in his belief that God gave him the inspiration to use the talents he was given, and that mindset forms the basic message he conveys to all those he meets. He is determined to reach out to others and help change their lives like Armand changed his.
Armand Puyolt speaks proudly:
“When I see people that where in the fields picking strawberries , not by choice but by necessity, and now I see him dressed better, living better, and on top of the world.
This is why I do this, to see peoples life change in front of my eyes is the greatest blessing God has given me.”
At the time of this interview, Manuel had just hit the rank of Diamond at Vida Divina®. That achievement has further inspired him to work harder and to show others how they can duplicate his success.
When Ada Caballero, Triple Diamond, said:
“Manuel has come from tragic to Magic but not by chance. He is one of the hardest working Network Marketers I have ever seen not only in my organization, but in the industry, Manuel is one of the most respected and well-liked leaders in Vida Divina, because he has earned it with his work”
Many things have changed about Manuel, but his gentle and humble nature is not one of them. Alongside the photo of Albert Einstein is a super-enlarged six-figure check from Vida Divina proving just how quickly a life can change when you realize you control your destiny.
Manuel ends with:
“I’m living proof that in this world we have unlimited capacity to grow, resolve problems and to inspire others. Many come to Vida Divina to find HOPE. I came to Vida Divina to restore confidence in others.”
