In early 2018, Jayson Stewart had hit rock bottom. He’d just gotten out of rehab and was struggling to raise his twin daughters while his soon-to-be-ex-wife battled stage four stomach cancer.
“I was in a very negative place,” says Stewart, who was living in a cramped RV and working full-time selling golf course equipment to make ends meet. “I just couldn’t stop feeling sorry for myself.”
But in July of that year, Stewart decided something needed to change. One of his friends told him that THRIVE might give him the kickstart he needed to feel better, and he decided to give it a try.
“Within 30 minutes, I felt that clean-burning energy,” says Stewart, who had been living on eight bottles of energy drinks each day. That night, he says, he got the best sleep he’d ever remembered. “I was always a light sleeper in the RV, and when I shut my eyes that night, I didn’t wake up until the next morning. I thought, ‘Wow, this is gold!’”
He became a Promoter and couldn’t stop talking about the product. Then, he went live on Facebook to share his experience, “and things just exploded from there,” he says.
“I meditate each morning and night, visualizing myself walking across the stage to collect my Le-Vel Millionaire Award. I envision every detail, from the color of my suit to the sound my shoes make when I’m walking across the stage. I’ve been practicing accepting this award for three years; it’s inevitable that I will achieve it.”
Stewart started climbing the ranks rapidly, hitting his 40K VIP rank within 90 days, and 80K rank a few months later.
“I couldn’t believe what was happening, and I remember calling members of my upline and asking them, ‘What do I do now?’ They told me just to keep going, and that’s what I did.”
But the road to success hasn’t always been easy. In 2019, Stewart suffered a number of losses: His ex-wife, sister and father all passed away. But instead of wallowing in sorrow, Stewart did the opposite. “As a single parent trying to give my daughters the life they deserved, I had my back up against the wall,” he says. So, Stewart doubled down on his THRIVE business, plugging into daily training sessions and watching 200K rank leaders tell their stories on Zoom. And he embraced meditation to help him adopt a more positive mindset.
Now, he’s on the verge of reaching the 200K rank milestone and believes that the Millionaire Award is within his reach. “I feel there’s great power in the lens with which you choose to view your life,” says Stewart, whose Le-Vel team members now call him “The Positivity Gangster.”
“I choose the positive lens, and that has been a life-changer.”
