Values to Live by!


by Roger Zotti hat Chief Executive Officer of USANA He a l t h S c i e nc e s , longtime musician, and author Kevin Guest wants readers to take from his memorable and informative book, All the Right Reasons: 12 Timeless Principles for Living a Life in Harmony, is that “you can live a life in harmony with those around you. I’ve found that when I put things in order of my highest priorities— and for me that is God, family and my colleagues/friends, everything else works out in order.” For Kevin, a life lived in harmony means “a consistent and honest arrangement of your values and a solid commitment to living those values day in and day out. I share 12 principles I have done my best to live by. I also share the reasons behind these principles. I

hope these reasons and principles will help each person build their own solid foundation and help create a life in harmony.” Asked by The Resident what the main focus of his book is, Kevin, who lives with his wife Lori in Salt Lake City, Utah, says, “It’s on putting our core cha racter t raits i nto act ion [which] is what it means to live a life in har mony.” He cites music, where “harmony occurs when notes blend in a way that is pleasing to the ear. Whether someone plays in a band, sings in a choir, or performs in an orchestra, there is nothing quite as exhilarating as achieving perfect harmony with fellow musicians. Harmony in music doesn’t happen without hours of practice and each individual mu sicia n’s c om m it me nt t o getting the music right.”

“…putting our core traits into action.” — Kevin Guest One of Kevin’s mentors is Abraham Lincoln, whose life and work he has studied. Three reasons why America’s sixteenth president serves as his “model for success” are, first, that “He

possessed the unique ability to develop genuine friendships with people who opposed him, even choosing advisors and cabinet members who held contradictory views so he could be exposed to other perspectives and divergent ideas.” The second reason is the Gettysburg Address: “When I read [it],” Kevin writes, “I am overwhelmed by Lincoln’s wisdom and foresight, his ability to galvanize an entire around the cause of truth.” Reason three: Kevin isn’t afraid of “surrounding myself with people who are smarter and more capable than I am and letting them go to work…. The best leaders see the value in opposition.” Characterizing his book— which is never preachy— as one of “hope, as a plea for courage and as a clarion call to

action,” he challenges readers, asking them, “ ʻWho will have character if you don’t?…Who will right the wrongs, heal the wounds and repair the broken, if not you? Will you join me in this quest for character? Will you seek harmony? Will you live your life for all the right reasons?’ ” An important f inal point: “One hundred percent of the proceeds of the sale of this book is going to help feed hungry children,” Kevin adds. “We have a goal to provide one million meals to children who are in need. So far we have provided 800,000 meals, and we want to reach that one million meal goal by August this year.” Clearly written, entertaining, and realistically optimistic, All the Right Reasons is available at amazon.com.
