I recently got serious about not only using my essential oils for myself, but also to share my experience with others and make a real business of Young Living Oils as well.
I signed up with Young Living Oils in Early 2016 to solely use the oils for myself and to be able to get the oils at wholesale prices versus retail. I used every oil that came in my kit for an entire year without purchasing anything new or replacing what I had used from my kit. My sponsor and close friend contacted me in late February to let me know I’d need to submit a minimum $50 order to remain active. I didn’t want to lose the ability to purchase oils at wholesale prices so I quickly placed an order.
Then one day as I was sitting at work, dreading making cold calls to talk about IT software and explain why it would be good for various government agencies to purchase this software, I began to get a bit agitated. There I was doing something I absolutely hated doing and dreading every moment of it. I figured if I could sell something I was not passionate about and had no care in the world about, then why couldn’t I sell what I was passionate about. At the time I was thinking about my love for gardening and teaching others to grow their own food and be sustainable as well as various other ideas I have for entrepreneurship. I had my diffuser going at work with Stress Away essential oil blend added to it, and a coworker spotted it and asked what it was and what it was for. As I began to explain and then began to talk about the oils, she looked at me and said “you’re really passionate about your oils aren’t you?” At that moment, bells began to go off in my head and light bulbs!! I was absolutely passionate about the oils, what they’ve done for me and my family members that have used and are using them. That’s when it clicked for me. Why couldn’t I share what I was passionate about AND make a living doing it? Why did I have to continue sharing what the CEO of the company I work for was passionate about and make his pockets fat while he was able to enjoy dream vacations and time with his family and more? Who said that had to be the way that life had to be?
And so begins my journey. My journey to not sell, but to share what I’m passionate about and help other families make changes that will alter their lives for good as well. I’m passionate about my vegan lifestyle and eating/exercising so that I can have a healthier life and live a long prosperous life until Jesus calls my name and not go before my time because of some disease, sickness, or illness. I’m passionate about growing as much of my own food as possible so I know where my food comes from and what’s in it and while I’m at it, I can teach others to do the same as well and share the bounty of produce with those in need; giving fresh produce to local food banks and contributing to my community. I’m passionate about ridding my home of toxins and chemicals that the FDA says are safe to clean my home with and freshen the air I breath within the walls of my home, as well as the chemical laden products I lather on my skin, my hair, and brush my teeth with. I’m passionate about making life simpler for others as much as is humanly possible so that they have not only the finances they need to live a prosperous and generous life, but also have more time to enjoy their families and the things they enjoy doing.
Yes, the Bible does say we are to work 6 days a week, but I don’t recall reading that it had to be 8 hours per day, or that it had to be at a job we were not gifted for or not passionate about. I believe God gave each of us a passion for something that will bring in an income and be beneficial to others and meet needs. I believe that it doesn’t have to take 40-60 hours per week with little time for family and life in general.
Why do many of us settle? Why do we not step out and pursue those things which we are truly gifted for and passionate about? Fear? Laziness? Apathy? No get up and go? No direction? No wisdom? What is your reason and how do you overcome it?
Scripture says we have not because we ask not; James 4:3.
Ask God for the wisdom you lack and need? Ask God for direction so you know what steps to take and who to speak to in order to bring your dreams to fruition. Ask God for guidance to make right decisions. Ask God to put you in the path of the right people you need to get to the next levels you are seeking. Ask God to help you overcome the fear, apathy, and laziness. Ask God for what you need, trust and believe He will provide, and follow what He tells you. Nothing happens by coincidence and karma is not the Christians way of life.
Let’s start living dreams and making them a reality.
I pray I’ve inspired you and ignited a fire within you to take some steps towards making your dreams a reality.
