But then something bigger happens. You realize that if you build an organization with Young Living you can actually help an unlimited number of people. You may only know a few people but those people know a few people and before you know it hundreds of people are experiencing better health and wellness (thanks to you!). In addition to that you realize that through the compensation plan you can actually achieve financial freedom as well, and that means you can quit your job and enjoy life! But the best part is, it's not only you, those first people that you introduced to the oils (the ones closest to you that you really care about) will also gain financial freedom in the process because as you grow, they grow with you. In this model you can't grow without them and they can't grow without you, it's a win-win!
Its seems so simple, and it is simple but that does not mean it is easy, does it? When I began the process of systematic sharing, I found that some days it is hard, I mean really hard. For one thing some of my loved ones got their own oils and some didn't because they are skeptical. This is frustrating to me because I know these oils are amazing, I hear testimonials everyday from people who are using them and are getting completely off of prescription medications and they feel better than ever. Why wouldn't everyone want to do the same!? Sometimes it's not so easy to put yourself out there, you become vulnerable. Maybe you are like me and you are not very outgoing. I have to really push myself to open my mouth and say something when I see a situation that just screams "that guy needs oils!" and that too, is not easy.
Bret Harward says that average people strive to avoid failure but successful people embrace failure as a part of success. When it seems like I have been doing this for an eternity and there is so much rejection and the rewards come far and few between, I remind myself that network marketing is a FOUR year career. It's not a four month career, and not even a 2 year career. So I stay consistent and patient, because after all, what other job in the world allows a person to retire after four years with residual income?
This is the only business model in the world that allows ordinary people to achieve extraordinary financial results and all it takes is the proper tools and focus. Nothing makes me feel happier than when someone from my organization tells me that they feel the best they have in 15 years and also they just quit a job they hated. That is what it's all about! When I feel like giving up, I remind myself to step back and look how far I've come instead of how far I have yet to go.
See you at the beach friends!
