new year, young living, January 2017 promotions

Young Living monthly promotions are a great way to get free oils each month. These oils usually have a theme each month, and are a great way to get new products into your home that aren’t on your priority list yet, but should be.

Let’s take a look at what they are offering for January. Oh, but hurry! January is almost out the door. Take advantage while you still can!

PnCpromo

The awesome lineup for January includes:
Peace and Calming (5ml): Gentle sweet scent that provides an uplifting experience. This isn’t even available to purchase and is frequently out of stock, so it would behoove you to get in on this!

Helichrysum (5ml): Great to diffuse when setting and looking over your goals, a perfect companion to keep you on track for your resolutions. I also like this on my face at bedtime!

Joy (15ml): Encourages romance, bliss, and warmth when diffused. Can also be worn as a fragrance. I love this oil and can never get enough of it. I mean joy, why would you say no to more joy?!

JoyFeeling

Eucalyptus Globulus (15ml): Contains a high percentage of eucalyptol (google it). It brings a clean aroma into any room of the house. As a stay at home mom, I love that, it is nice for the husband to come home to a clean smelling home, even when the kids have been messier than usual.

If you are on Essential Rewards (ER), you also receive bonus oils of Basil Vitality, and Citrus Fresh Vitality, both 5ml.

Meet the Best People

Young Living is a great way to meet some of the best people!

Jim Rohn is quoted as saying “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

14225428_10154463786432008_3225565157679853460_n

I have found this to be absolutely true! There was a time that all of my time was spent around negative, unhappy people. During those times I found ever so much to be unhappy about.

Thankfully for me, about six years ago I joined Young Living, and through this amazing company I have met some amazing people. I have posted many times about my dear friend Carrie.

meet best people, jim rohn

I also met her amazing daughter, the now Diamond leader Sara Wallace. Her and I did a vendor booth together years ago which was fun. It has been even more fun to watch her grow into an amazing leader, wife, and mom. She is always learning and growing and challenges those around her to do the same.

My favorite though is one that I met at another vendor booth for a cloth diapering mom’s group. I met my friend Tonya there, among many other people. Who knew then that she would end up being one of my favorite friends?

meet great people, friends, Young Living, jim rohn

That’s the beauty of Young Living. You meet like minded people who have similar goals, so you end up wanting to spend time with them, encouraging them in the pursuit of those goals. You learn and grow together, celebrating the successes of the people you care about.

It’s not just about business, though. When you truly find “your tribe,” you truly value the friendship, you form a true friendship. You share, laugh, and go through the happy and the tough moments of life together. In fact, we recently scheduled time together to work. We ended up doing no work. We talked and watched our kids play together the whole time. All the work was done through text later that evening!

friends, Young Living

Meeting people with goals and vision can help motivate you to find then reach your own goals and vision. The best way to succeed in life is to surround yourself with people who are already successful in the areas of life that you want to improve.

Young Living has them all! I have met faith-filled wives and mothers. I have met influential business leaders. I have met humble home-schooling moms. I have met health gurus. I have also met some of the most giving and generous people I know.

transformation essential oil, best you

I want to be more like all these ladies (well, I am not so sure on the home school business, haha). I admire the amazing ladies I have met through Young Living and value their friendship. I hope to spend more and more time with these kinds of people. They are my tribe. I want to be like them, so I like to spend my time and energy with them.

Young Living us a great way to meet amazing people. If you are ready to join the fun, click here!

Mastering Self Motivation

Self motivation is sometimes incredibly difficult, but is essential in the process of achieving a long-term goal. This is something that has come up in my life, both at recent leadership meetings, and in an audiobook I am currently listening to.

MotivationEO

When you first set a goal, you are super excited about it. The sheer enthusiasm will help you to perform the necessary work. If it is a true long-term goal, though, it can be difficult to maintain the same level of enthusiasm for months and years. Add to that the negative people and difficulties that life tends to throw at you, and it is very easy to lose sight of what you are working for, or even to give up all together.

Another issue for me, personally, was discussed by Sandi Krakowski in one of her podcasts. Perfectionism. This is not just an issue in my Young Living business, but in my home life as well. If I am going to take the time to do something, I want to do it right, I want to do it well. I want an A+, I want to be noticed and recognized for a job well done. So I don’t start my projects, I put them off until later, and later, and later. Uhm, this blog hasn’t been updated since when?!

Perfectionist

So at a recent leadership meeting, one of my leaders talked about a method of self motivation called carrot and stick. Your carrot is that awesome thing you want bad and will work hard for. This is your positive reinforcement. Your stick is that negative thing you do not want in your life which may be possible if  you do not take action. You use this to whip your own fanny when getting out of bed and doing the work it takes to get where you want to go seems more difficult than usual. This is the negative reinforcement.

Anyone can easily come up with a carrot and stick that applies to his or her life, then call these to mind in order to stay the course and keep moving forward no matter how difficult, no matter how arduous the task, no matter how many naysayers are around to try to keep you down.

So here is what I came up with: My carrot is being financially free and able to travel with my family and help those in needs in ways that I am called by my Creator. My stick is being stuck in a “healthcare” job forever while continuing to miss all of the big events in the lives of those I love. Needless to say these are personal to me, and likely wouldn’t apply to you, or simply wouldn’t work for you. The key is to find your own carrot and stick.

Let me just say that this has helped tremendously for me! When the urge to go to bed at a decent hour hits, I remember missing Easter recently due to work. This was the first year for my son to really hunt eggs, and I had bought him a suit and would have loved seeing him in it. I stay up and I write. I go to the library to finally update this blog. I teach classes and think on ways to improve on my systems. Some day my kids and I will enjoy a nice cruise to a white sandy beach as a reward for my efforts!

So tell me, what is your carrot and stick?

Blessings,

Build YOUR Dream

Build Your Dream is an essential oil blend unveiled by Young Living at the 2014 convention. When it first became available to those who didn’t attend, it was only available in a limited edition kit that also included a gorgeous 20th Anniversary solid wood oil holder. I was determined to get them, and was able to shortly before the kit became unavailable. It is now available with just the essential oil blend.

AnnivBox

At the post-convention local leadership meeting I was able to listen to my leaders talk about this awesome blend. That was when I knew I had to have this in my home!

My leaders talked about having your own dream: big dreams, big God-given goals and dreams. Many people in business, especially network marketing tend to hang on to the dreams of others. I used to listen to podcasts that were motivation for people in all network marketing. I heard big goals, big dreams. Some were buying their parents houses, some were owning other businesses. These are great goals, exciting goals. They aren’t mine though. Having a big goal and a big vision that is true and specific to only you is a powerful thing. They said that if you didn’t have that yet, to use this oil.

BuildYourDream

At the time my goals weren’t particularly big, exciting, or necessarily unique to me. My goals were, and still are to get to a place financially where I would be able to quit working outside the home full-time. I still have the goal of becoming debt free, and building a bigger house. I dreamed of travel with my family. At the time I said that I wanted the time freedom to be able to pursue midwifery. Those are awesome goals. I am passionate about those goals. They are worthy of pursuing, but they don’t hold much vision. They are also not big enough to sustain me in the long-term.

I hadn’t actually used the essential oil when I first got it. I wanted to save it, for what I don’t know. I spent a considerable amount of time after that meeting thinking about purpose and vision. I wanted my own thing. I prayed for God to reveal a big vision, a purpose to me. I needed something much bigger than myself to work for, a way to give back in a way that I am unable to right now.

IMG_20120926_192949

God provided (even before using the oil)! Once the idea was set in my heart it stayed there persistently. I didn’t mention it to my husband because I figured he would think I was crazy! I didn’t mention it to anyone else because I wanted my husband on board first; it affects our family a lot more than the lives of other people, even those whose opinions I most respect.

I finally revealed my heart and my vision. As suspected, he does think I am crazy! He knows well enough though that if God tells you something, it is best to obey, no matter how wild it may appear. We were able to look at floor plans for future homes as a preparation for when all the goals are met and we are able to proceed with building a bigger house and making this far bigger God-given dream a reality. We were able to pray together about Young Living, about goals, and finances. That was so very refreshing and has left me very excited about moving into the future.

Vision

I finally started using the Build Your Dream essential oil blend. I am super excited about using it while picturing all the exciting things that can happen in our future thanks to the opportunity that Young Living provides. I hope that you will give this oil a try, and start on the path to Build Your Dream.

What big goals do you have? Leave a comment and let me know!

Getting Into the Game

Often when I am on the road I like to listen to something more beneficial than music, especially pop music. Usually I listen to different preachers, occasionally I listen to podcasts on leadership and business. When I hear a sermon, I am often able to relate it to my business, and to success in any business, really.

A few days ago was listening to a preacher I had never heard of before named Jack Graham (not an endorsement, I only heard part of one sermon!). He was discussing getting into the game.

IMG_20120919_234237

He said that every sports team manager would love to have a player that played perfectly all the time, who never made a mistake, and always scored points at every attempt. He said that the trouble is “We can’t get the guy in the stands to drop is hot dog and get in the game!”

He made several worthy points that I intend to remember as I build my business. The comfort of the sidelines (or worse my couch) where many stay and often negate the efforts of those in the midst of the action. It takes courage to get into the game. Prayer is vital to the believer in the game.

IMG_20120927_152047

The sidelines (or couch) are a comfortable, fun, and safe place to be! I mean players are injured all the time, but no worries if you aren’t playing, right?! The sidelines don’t require you to work up a sweat, to work hard, to train. You just show up and watch. Oh, and critique. “How could he miss that” and other such phrases are easy to throw around when you aren’t actually playing. This is a great place to stay if comfort is your top priority.

TCheer

Chances are though that you want more. To be honest, God made you for more.

Following the will of God and running your own business are scary endeavours! What will my friends and family think? How will I survive? Will I have to sacrifice time with loved ones? Sleep? Will I really make money? The uncertainty of it all will drive many right back to the sidelines. We want a guarantee, we want to see the end.

IMG_20120926_194312

It take courage to get in on the action, to start playing the game. It takes courage to overcome the fears. Your friends and family may not approve. Things likely will be tough. Time with loved ones will be reduces as time for training increases. Part of that training and game playing may just happen when you are accustomed to sleeping. You never know whether you will make money at it until you try.

IMG_20120926_191050

Training, hard work and sacrifice are part of every great success story. One must be courageous and overcome fear in order to overcome, and to pursue God-given dreams and passions. There is a period of often painful growth before the money and success come. Only God knows when that will be, so continuing on the course of growth and training is necessary as long as God says it is. He knows when you are ready for the real game, which leads into the next point.

IMG_20120928_150240

“The door of success always swings on the hinges of prayer.” Prayer is vitally important! Knowing what to do during the time of training and preparation will come when you ask God. Every step of the way, God knows the path that leads to victory and the path that leads to destruction. Asking God’s direction before proceeding would save a lot both time and embarrassment. Then God will tell you when it is time for the big game, and He will be there with you in it. If you stay humble during this time, he will continue to guide you through the game, or in my case, my Young Living business.

Valor

After typing this I will be anointing myself with three particular essential oils. Valor is my favorite for instilling feelings of strength and courage. Motivation, and the name says it all! I will also apply Frankincense, a personal favorite of mine when praying and seeking.

Childlike Belief

What were your hopes and dreams as a child? When you played, what was your imagined job as a grown up?

I remember dreams of being a princess

I remember having many aspirations through the years. I remember wanting to be a singer, a lawyer, the first woman president, a baker, and a writer. All these were dream careers of mine at some point between childhood and into my teen years.

The thing is I have no talent for singing whatsoever. If I were to be paid while singing, it would be more likely that people were paying me to stop! There is no way in to world that I would want to be a lawyer, and certainly not a president! My home and the people in it are enough responsibility for me, thank you!

While I still do love to bake, I far prefer just baking for those I love (even if I do end up eating way more than my share). Many years ago, I gave up on dreaming of a career in writing, but I do enjoy writing on this blog, and I have had one work of poetry published. While I no longer desire to write in a magazine, maybe one day a book wouldn’t be out of the question.

Things change, and as we become adults, some of our goals adjust based on the reality of our lives, and of our personal strengths and weaknesses. Sadly though, many of our goals change because we simply give up on ourselves.

It is easy as an adult to become cynical. Life is full of obstacles, and sometime it does appear as though the only people making it to the top are the ones who cheated their way there. For every one of those stories though, there are more stories of people working hard and achieving the success that had once been a far of dream.

Meeting goals takes hard work and sacrifice, and the bigger the goal, the harder the work.

That is part of the beauty of childhood. If you tell a child that it would be hard to have the career of his or her dreams, and you will likely be told “I don’t care, that is what I want. I will do it.”

So at what point in our lives do we lose that tenacity? I say it is time we regain our resolve. Let’s start having big dreams again. Let’s keep our eyes on the prize and make it happen. It may be hard, but we want it, and we can have it!

Note: The essential oil desk reference says that Inner Child essential oil helps one “reconnect with the inner self or identity.”
I bet your inner self knows you can achieve great things!

Life in Four Years

For the last three years I have worked 16 hour shifts on the weekends at my full-time job. Saturday morning I arrive at 6am and stay until 10pm. I go home for a short nap, and then I am back again Sunday morning at 6am, then leave again at 10pm. This only adds up to 32 hours, so I work one eight hour shift on Tuesdays also.

workin

This shift has its advantages in that I have far more time at home with my babies than the average working mom has. It also means we don’t have to pay a sitter to care for our kids.

The downside is that it means I am gone every weekend. I don’t know if you have noticed, but most fun events are scheduled on a weekend. Birthdays parties, graduation parties, weddings, church, Robert’s racing and most get togethers in general. Working the shift I do means that I miss out on a lot of the fun things in life that are happening.

Calendar

Tuesday evening my daughter had her kindergarten musical. I was unable to attend because of work, and I only have so much vacation time. I have missed countless musicals, holidays. I haven’t seen my children on a Mother’s Day in 3 years! What I have gotten instead is four denied requests for time off. I was unable to go with my daughter to her out of town volleyball tournament.

I dream of a day when I make my hours, when I no longer have anyone telling me when I can and can’t take vacation time, when I am allowed to have a break.

4year

There is a book called The Four Year Plan by Richard Bliss Brooke. It is all about network marketing. It is about investing a small amount of money into this industry, and working hard for four years, then having the ability at the end of those four years to be able to retire with a residual income, a substantial one at that.

Abundance check2

The thing is this: four years will pass anyway. At the end of those four years, do I still want to keep working hard at a J-O-B (just over broke) where I am told when I am allowed to take time with my family? Or do I prefer to be financially independent, and able to retire and enjoy my family?

I feel it is well worth my time and effort to work on the latter. I want to be financially well off and debt free. I want freedom in my time, to be able to take vacations, to be present for all the big moments in my kids and someday grandkids’ lives.

If you, too, would like to see a better outcome at the end of your next four years than the path you are currently on allows, please contact me. Better yet, click the Get Started button below, and I will be in touch!

It is time to pursue the life of your dreams!
