Since I started selling Young Living, I learned that other people affiliated with the company are not just about selling oils. This is a huge relief since I absolutely suck at sales. I can tell you all of the benefits, give a recommendation, but at the end of the day, I am not rich and I could never force someone to invest in something that they can not financially handle.
The difference between Young Living and other companies is that it really is okay. I don't have that pressure. Yeah, I do work my butt off. I do struggle. I also do it for myself. I want to succeed at something I don't normally do. I want to try new things.
A few weeks ago, I cam across a Twitter account for Live Oola. I wasn't immediately aware it was Young Living affiliated until I started to really dive in. They had these beautiful quotes on inspirational photos and had very energetic team members. I was dealing with a wide range of emotions over the past week and I decided it was time. I needed to check this out. I started to read these quotes and I was struck again and and again by how relatable they were. I didn't even know that they were encouraging you to be a better version of. They wanted you to feel at least a 7/10 on every scale of your life. Family, friends, fun, finances, fitness, faith, and field. I was alarmed that my average score was 477. Ideally, you should be in the 700s or higher.
What am I doing wrong? I dug through the quotes to see what really struck me and I was not surprised to see what I saw.
I am always trying to change my situation or correct something. I always feel like I am right and others are wrong. That isn't true. I don't really think others are wrong. I think we are all right in our own way, but some of us need to improve. I can't fix someone elses problems. They can do that and I can fix me.
I feel like so much of life is a struggle. It is amazing when you look back and see how easy you have had it. I have had terrible experiences, but I have learned so much. Things that I am positive about now, I wasn't always positive about. I need to look for my learning lessons.
This one immediately reminded me of a Josh Groban song. I listened to the song "You Are Loved" so much, yet I never took stock in it. Sometimes you have to be beat down enough to get up and say, "No. I am not taking any more abuse. I have an army behind me and I just now saw them."
This saying is my goal. I desperately seek balance, but I am always tipping the scales. Trust is hard, and I don't know what contentment means, but at the end of the day, I want it.
So much. I can't wait to see the puzzle come together.
