You’ve Got 30 Second – What Do You Say?

We all know how important it is to have our ‘WHY’ documented and drilled down so far that it almost makes us cry, right?  It needs to really light a fire within us. It needs to keep us motivated to keep moving forward even when we can’t see the next step. If you don’t know your ‘WHY’ yet, I urge you to work on that. Keep asking yourself, ‘WHY’! Why do you want to do what you are doing? Why?, Why? And eventually, you will get to the root of your why!

ElevatorSpeechOnce you know your why, picture yourself in an elevator with a stranger and you only have ten floors between you and  your departure. The stranger greets you good morning, and asks you, “What do you do?”  This is your chance to WOW them! Your elevator speech needs to be short (30 seconds short), to the point, and make them want to stay on the elevator so they can hear more or at least exchange contact info!

“After 18 years in the same corporate job dealing with stress and a declining paycheck, I decided to become my own boss by sharing my love of essential oils and how they have personally helped improve my health, manage my stress, and gain freedom!   I have already helped hundreds of families live a healthier life by removing the harsh chemicals from their lives and am supporting them in meeting their goals and freedom! I’d love to share with you the steps I took if you’re interested!”

Here’s a guideline you could follow if you need help:

I’m a ___________.
I help __________
DO ____________
So They Can __________.

 

So what do you think of my elevator speech, do you want to hear more and exchange information?

The Trickle Effect

FootprintsThis morning during my quiet time with God, I was sitting with Him and just being quiet in my thoughts and drinking my coffee. I was looking at the footprints on my cup and rubbed my fingers over them and realized how many times God has carried me during the rough times in my life and couldn’t help but feel so blessed and close to God.  I must admit, I haven’t always felt this close to God and spending quiet time with Him was not a priority for me and years ago, hardly ever.

Lately though, I have been able to recognize His presence and how all of the puzzle pieces are starting to come together. So often when times get hard, we can’t understand why. Why would God let this happen? Our lives touch so many different people every day of our life and the trickle effect is way beyond our comprehension. It isn’t always just about us and what we need every second of the day. People come into our lives and go out of lives for a reason. Some only stay for a season and a purpose and when that purpose is achieved, or when we are no longer benefitting from that relationship, God steps in and what we thought was our plan takes a turn that we didn’t expect. As much as we want things to happen in our timeframe, it never will. God is the one in control.

He knows when we need a break and if we don’t take that break, He will step in and take control. You might come down with the flu and be forced to take a week off and doFootprints1 absolutely nothing except lay in bed. You might have a minor freak accident and twist your ankle or even break a leg and be layed up for days or weeks at a time. It is important for us to realize that that even this was His Will. During that time, He is making you stronger ,whether you realize it or not. Later though, if you are fortunate enough, you too will start to see the puzzle pieces come together and these difficult times will begin to resonate with you how they turned out for the better in some weird way. It could be as simple as the fact that while you were layed up, you had the time to read a book, or watch a movie that truly impacted you in some way that led to a change in your mindset. Maybe while sitting in the doctors office, you got to talking to the person next to you, and something you said to them impacted their day and led to a change within them. It could have even just been a smile or a kind word that transpired and you will never know how you changed that person’s life. Everyone has a story to tell and you would never know just by looking at them what challenge they are facing. Maybe that person was contemplating ending their life, but that kind gesture of simply holding the door open for them and smiling changed their mind.  It could be that simple.

When we learn to look for the positive in every situation, eventually we can find something positive even if that something is as small as a mustard seed.  That terrible storm, may have torn your world apart and you can’t understand why, but you must have faith that something positive transpired somewhere.  If you can’t think of any way possible that something positive happened for you, maybe you are right. That’s when we have to look at the bigger picture and remember it is the chain reaction of events and other people involved who were impacted.  I can almost guarantee you that somewhere in that chain reaction someone was impacted by something positive and we just won’t know until we meet our maker and fully understand the why’s behind our lives and everyone our lives touched!

For better or worse, we have to have faith and believe that everything happens for a reason and everyone matters to God. After all, we are His children and He wants the best for us all!

 

DO YOU BELIEVE?

Just like building our business, we all grow differently, we all have our own beliefs, we all find God in our own timing. Whether you believe in God, or a higher power, we still believe in something so much greater than us. For me, it is all about God and He has been calling on me for a long time. I’ve believed all my life, but it hasn’t been until I’d say these last five years where I’ve noticed my spirituality really taking off.

I’ve learned to recognize His Signs and hear His small voice in my head whispering what I needed to do. I am here today to tell you, that when I listened and did what I was asked to do, my world started to change. And not in a little way, but a big way! The more I do for Him, the more He does for me.

This year, OMGosh, at times, I feel like I’m flying so high I can’t stand it! I am getting so involved in my church, that I will be up on stage Tuesday night. That has been a dream of mine, ever since I walked in that church five years ago! Jesus is calling us all, we just have to be willing to listen!

My mother for many years always kept bringing up God and trying to get me more and more involved with the church and the Bible, etc. But you know what, it has to come naturally, just like building our following, our books, our Young Living business. I can’t force anyone to share or do the business with us. You have to WANT it for yourself, you have to BELIEVE in what you are doing, and why you are doing it, and most importantly you have to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!!!

I’m here today to share this with you because God is the one who placed this opportunity in my lap after I prayed and prayed for a way to make money so that I could do His Will, so that I would be able to retire from my day job and continue to share my love of Him with all of those who struggle with stress, anxiety, and depression. And now, I get to do all of that, but I also get to tie it back to essential oils and how all of the emotional and spiritual oils have helped keep me focused and grounded to my purpose. He is the one I have to thank for ALL OF YOU!

HE IS CALLING YOU TOO, AND I’M SO GLAD HE BROUGHT YOU HERE!!!!! xoxoxo

Jesus Calling

GET OUT OF THE BACK ROW!

Get out of your comfort zone. Get out of the boat, and dance on water with God! 

Last night at Bible Study, I met an amazing leader and I know that she will play a role in my success in making my biggest dream come true! In fact, she already has! She and I have alot in common and I know once we find time to meet and get to know each other, the similarities will grow. How do I know this? God brought her into my life for a reason!

You see, the first day my best friend and I decided to check out this new Church called Lifepoint, and we sat in the audience in awe, the music and the people drew us both in. I felt the music in my very soul, I felt His presence in my heart and felt as if my heart was beating stronger as a result. I knew in that moment that this Church would become a part of me. I told my friend, Karen, that one day I will be standing on that stage.

This is basically the same message that this amazing leader spoke about last night!  She talked about how she sat in the back row of this very same church when God spoke to her and gave her the same dream and she followed His every move to be that leader on stage speaking for God! I had to meet her! I didn’t hesitate, not even for one second, to walk up to her and introduce myself. Years ago, I never would have done such a thing. I was too shy, too intimidated, too scared.  But ever since God directed me and placed that desire in my heart to write my first book, “Signs from God”, He has constantly urged me to get out of my comfort zone and put my faith in Him!  I’ve taken that chance every time and I know that one day, I too, will be on that stage dancing with God!

Everyone has a life to live; everyone has a job to do in this life. So live your life, but take some time to really think about what your purpose is in this life. How can you help other people? How can you help spread God’s Love?  Is it through healing? Is it through your music? Is it through teaching? Is it through serving? There are so many different ways we can do God’s work. Spend time with God and He will lead you. Ask for His help and He will guide you. Believe in His timing and know that He is with you and loves you unconditionally, all the time. He will help you get out of your comfort zone. He will bring the people into your life, at the right time, to ensure you have everything you need to be successful. God wants you to step out of that boat; out of your comfort zone; away from safety, and put your trust in Him! He not only wants you to walk on water like Peter, He wants us to Dance on Water with Him!

Start speaking life and purpose so that you feel it in your soul! You are meant to make a difference in this lifetime! With God’s help you can do anything you set your mind to! Here’s a picture I had taken after a Young Living conference when I knew that one day I would be up on a stage, bigger than this one, speaking about stress, anxiety, depression, and Miracles and how Young Living and the Lord changed my life!

See It; Dream It; Believe It – It Will Happen!

ONSTAGE

If It Feels Right, It’s Right!

I’m pretty sure we would all agree that decisions are very difficult to make at times. I know personally I was in a very dark place and so distraught trying to make a life-altering decision.  The tears I shed were almost never-ending. Finally, God stepped in and realized I had had enough. That’s because I was begging for His help because I couldn’t decide what was best. I couldn’t understand what His Will was for me, and it was His Will that I wanted to follow. Finally, I was prepared to make a decision based on what I thought I wanted, and then literally minutes before the decision was communicated, that decision was totally flipped the other way. His Will was relayed to me, and the next steps were revealed. What I learned during that time was that if it feels right, it is! If you are struggling with the decision then that’s your answer. Stick to what feels right!  When it feels right in your heart find a way to stick with it and make it work, whatever the issue is. Once you make that decision, just do it! Be strong, be committed, make the change and be done with it so you can and move on! If you dwell on it too long, you will change your mind and drive yourself crazy!

Only you can change your life; only you can change your destiny!

Feel good about the decision and move forward!

Don’t Wait! Take Control Now!

I can only imagine what life would be like if only I knew what I know now! How many times have we all said this?  Let me help you because the time is NOW! Don’t Wait!

i can only imagine

I’m sure you’ve heard the scary stories about all the toxins in our lives these days. Do you know the average woman puts on over 300 toxins before she even leaves the house in the morning? It’s crazy, and don’t even get me started on all the chemicals and by-products that are in our foods, or the difference between organic, all-natural, therapeutic, etc. etc. It’s time we all do some research because we are killing ourselves slowly. I so wish I knew years ago what I know now! It could have changed things so much more for the better. My kids could have had a much healthier head start in life had I known what I know now!  I have learned that there are better alternatives, we can live a toxin free life, and you know who taught me? That’s right Young Living!

Essential oils support every system in our body, including our emotions, and spiritual grounding. These oils touch every cell within our body within twenty minutes! With Young Living essential oils you can use them, aromatically, topically, and even through ingestion!

If there was ever a better time to become a Young Living Member, it is NOW!  Essential Oils are on the rise big time. There are so many companies introducing essential oils into their products, but people it is so important for everyone to realize the importance of Quality essential oils.  I’ve been a member of Young Living for almost the past two years and I have learned so much through my research and everything that their doctors and scientists and those Royal Crown Diamonds who have been around much longer than I have.

Young Living is the founder when it comes to essential oils. Gary Young had over 30 years of experience in the field of essential oils and he and his wife founded Young Living almost 25 years ago.  They will be celebrating 25 Years in Business next year and I am so excited to be a part of that team of builders sharing the love of what Gary and Mary created all those years ago!

GradeAOils

Young Living is the only company with the Seed-to-Seal guarantee that we are receiving the purest form of 100% Therapeutic Grade A Essential Oils and they stand behind that committment and reinforce how important quality is to them. The culture, vision, passion, and everything they have built eminates the love they put into Young Living and all of their members who join in their passion for sharing their own love of Young Living essential oils and natural plant-based products!

It is important to note that true Grade A oils can’t be found at Walmart or other general stores for $5! It is critical that you learn to read your labels. Look for warning signs saying do not apply topically, do not ingest, call poison control, etc. These types of companies are able to price their essential oils at a more economical cost because they are adding carrier oils and synthetics (which are cancerous) to fill their bottles and cut costs. Young Living does not cut corners or quality for the sake of cost. Nothing is more important to Young Living than Quality!

When it comes to giving back to their members, it is especially obvious this month just how much they give back.  I have never seen so many promotions going on in one month before. The promos though, they aren’t all just from Young Living. The support that the members give each other is extradorinary too because everyone wants to help each other grow.  It is the best MLM Company I have every worked for and am so very proud to say will be the last company I ever work with. I am now my own boss growing my own business thanks to Young Living!

Don’t delay, get on the oily band wagon today! Start taking control of your own health and wellness. Start ditching the toxins from your life! And if you decide this is a great business opportunity for you too, I would love to support you and help grow your business!

The time is now! Let’s do this together!  Look at all the ways you can get more this month!  First you want to become a Member http://www.believeinessentials.com

The Desert Mist (OR) Dew Drop Premium Starter Kits are only $160 and is the most popular way of becoming a Member! Then you upgrade your account by Modifying your order and joining the Monthly Reward Program (Essential Rewards) where you start receiving points towards free product and bonus products based on your spending habits.

Let Go and Let God!

Everyone has there own way of praying and talking with God, and one of my favorite ways to communicate with God is through Journaling. This morning as I was sitting in my quiet place at the lake, I started thanking Him for getting me to the Lake this weekend and for the rain we heard as we were lying in bed before we got up. It was as if God were raining down on us and the peace I felt was so comforting. I then started thanking Him for his presence in my life and in that moment. I’ve been struggling lately with letting go of worries and asked Him to help me trust Him and not worry about anything or anyone else for my peace. It was then that it dawned on me, that God has my back and all I need to do is turn it over to Him and stop stressing about the things that I cannot change or control.  Then the phrase ‘Let Go and Let God’ entered my mind. I knew this all along, shoot I tell other people, so why do I need to be reminded all the time? I guess it is always easier when you are living in that moment, but now whenever I start to regress in my worries, I will remember and repeat this phrase, “Let Go and Let God”!

After all, God is the only one in control of our lives and it is in His timing when we will recognize the rewards and all of the puzzle pieces of life will fit together and we will realize the importance of His timing!

Let Go and Let God

IT’S ABOUT TO GET REAL!!!!

Let me tell you a little story and do my best to keep it short because if you’ve been following me, you already know most of this! But what I’m about to tell you could change your life too!  In fact, that’s my whole purpose in life right now…..to help people become a better person; help them live a better life full of abundance and purpose; help people remove the toxins from their life so they can live a healthier life; help people become their own boss!

ABUNDANCE

Right now, you are probably saying, Oh No! I knew it – another MLM, but people this is REAL and it’s about to get even MORE REAL!!!  Young Living just announced that, effective August 1st we can now enroll our Spouse in the business under us!  This company gives back in so many ways it’s actually hard to fathom at times. I’ve worked for several different MLMs, but I have never felt this strong about a company, their products, passion, culture, sense of family and how much they give back to all of their members! This passion and culture has been passed down to everyone in the company I have come in contact with and it reinforces my love for this business more and more every day!

If you aren’t yet a member and user of Young Living Essential Oils and natural products, you need to stop what you’re doing and start your own research!  Where can you do that?  www.believeinessentials.com   These 100% Therapeutic Grade A Essential Oils support every system in your body, including our emotional balance and spiritual grounding.  They got me through my heart attack and all the stress that went along with that. They now allow me to manage my stress levels, my digestive system, cardiovascular system, etc.

If you are a member, but are not yet sharing with your friends and family….I ask you why not?  Afraid you aren’t a salesman, don’t have the time, not enough friends? Trust me, I’ve heard all the excuses, in fact, I had them myself when I first signed up.  I quickly learned though, that we aren’t salesmen and don’t have to be, because these oils and products practically sell themselves. All we have to do, is share how we use them!  And when you love a product, it just comes naturally.  Sharing from the heart is easy!

Commission Pic

Today, before this huge announcement from Young Living today, I was going to post how I was able to pay our boat payment and have all of my oils paid for this month! Yeah, I’ve been a member for about 1.5 years, but now I am starting to recognize the larger your team grows, the larger your organization grows, and the larger your paycheck grows! Next month, I anticipate I’ll be able to pay for all of my oils, sign up my husband as a Member and Business Builder, pay for our boat payment again, add to that our camper payment, car payment, and start another savings account for him and his new business!

I expect to get a big promotion within the next couple of months, and when that happens my commission is literally going to quadruple!!!  Today, the possibilities of our income actually doubling as we both grow this business is literally unbelievable to even fathom! I can’t wait to strategize together and build each other so that we can live an amazing life of FREEDOM and so can our children one day….it’s residual and willable income!!!

Kids you are welcome! 

 

Hold Onto Your Dreams

Do you have a dream or a goal for your life? I hope that you do because everyone should have something to work towards, look forward to, and get excited about! Don’t let that dream just be a dream though. I urge you to be committed and determined never to give up!

Just because you have a dream and you pray that it comes true, doesn’t mean it will. God may have another plan for you that is better. No matter what that plan is though, you have to work at it. Good things take time. Little by Little with God’s help He will point you in the right direction. He will bring the right people into your life to help you. It can be accomplished. Things that develop slowly are accomplished with hard work and patience. The foundation-laying years of a successful business, or life, are not necessarily exciting, but they are absolutely necessary if we want something that will last. Expect Challenges because that is where we learn to grow. Develop yourself. Become a better person, the person God created you to be.

Dream Big Dreams! God wants us to be happy and He wants us to live an abundant life!

Hold Onto Your Dreams

Are You Arguing With Your Other Self?

There are times in life when we tend to doubt ourselves, our decisions, and second guess everything we do. It’s almost like we are two people. One of us has a plan, knows what they want, and can actually be happy about the potential outcome. Then there is this other person within us that always shows up and creates an internal battle inside your soul that can leave you feeling broken, stressed, a nervous wreck, and even make you so sick you break down.  That’s actually what happened to my mother. It’s amazing that I am able to recognize this in my own life as a result of what my mother went through all those years ago.

I am so blessed to have such a strong mother, she was a fighter. She turned to God, and God took control. If you are struggling with a similar situation, or just doubting your own ability to make a decision, I encourage you to Stop Fighting Yourself, and Start Fighting For Yourself!

Listen to your heart and validate what it is YOU actually want. Push aside all the chatter of everyone else, and stop worrying about pleasing everyone because you simply can’t. Don’t worry what people think of you, because they are not living in your shoes. Do what is right for you and keep the faith that you are making the right decision. Even if it is the wrong decision, God will find a way to turn it around and make it even better!

Someone recently told me that you are the only driver of your train; the train of your life! You can’t drive someone else’s train. You can’t change anyone; they have to be willing to do the hard work themselves. What you can do though, is protect your conductor. That protection comes from God, and He is fighting for us even when we can’t fight for ourselves. So give your burdens and your worries to God and let Him carry the them for you. Listen to what He has to say, validate whether or not you need to act or take an action regarding your situation, and do your best to follow His path. Then come back to the present and live one day at a time; just keep on keeping on and move forward knowing you did the best you could for you!

With God’s help you can fight for yourself! Fight for your life! Fight for what is right!

fighting yourself
