Our journey in life has often been referred to as “living your dash”… the time or life lived between the dates on your tombstone. What I want you to consider today is “How are you living YOUR dash?” It’s not the date you were born, or the date that you die that will really matter. It’s ‘the dash’ between those years and how you live it that will really count.
I want my life to count and know how I want to live my “dash”. I want to impact lives in positive, powerful ways. One of the ways I do this is to encourage others to journey into the world of Young Living Essential Oils and believe that this journey can empower everyone to live a life that is full, vibrant and healthy. We are a health and wellness company and believe that essential oils, nature’s living energy, will have a positive impact on the body, mind, and spirit and can help you to live your dash to the fullest. We believe that you and everyone you know and love can benefit from their use in many and varied ways. We want to empower you to live beyond your circumstances, to live life as a VICTOR and not a victim.
As you enter into the world of Young Living Essential Oils keep in mind that only YOU can take this journey. You can’t give it away or ask someone else to take responsibility for it. It’s YOUR journey and it’s EMPOWERING! It belongs to YOU, and you alone. After all it’s your dash and belongs to no other… so step up to the plate and embrace it!
Your journey into the Young Living world begins with educating yourself about essential oils… what they are, how they work, what makes them so, so special and why it should matter to you. It’s also about living a healthy lifestyle in body, mind and spirit. I believe that… we are spiritual beings living in a temporal human body, that what affects us on one level affects us on all levels, and that we work best when we nurture all three levels and essential oils can help on all levels.
Your journey progresses as you begin applying what you’ve learned along the way into your lifestyle, whenever and wherever possible. Take one day at a time and commit to slow, steady change. This is where it gets really interesting and your eyes begin to be opened. Some begin to experience subtle changes, while others have what we call “WOW moments”. Again everyone’s experience or journey is unique to them… it belongs to you and you alone. Your experience may be similar to someone else’s but will always be unique to YOU!
As you experience their effects on all levels… mind, body and spirit, your whole paradigm of thinking begins the change. Your eyes are opened and you begin to witness for yourself what makes them so exceptional in the world of natural substances. Like many others before you, you are AMAZED by these experiences and wonder why it took you so long to give essential oils a try. And the ranks of former skeptics are increased by one.
I was raised to believe that anything worth doing is worth doing well. If you approach something half-hearted then you’ll get half-hearted results. Commit to this journey. Give it your all, and don’t give up. Invest in it and it will give back to you tenfold. And remember there are no guarantees in life… there are no sure bets. There are only opportunities. Hold fast to this opportunity and don’t let it pass you by. When your results are less than expected press forward, commit to your journey. Do the research, keep looking for answers, educate yourself. Be tenacious and keep moving forward.
Did you begin your journey into essential oils but somehow, somewhere along the way got off track? Did you get on this horse but somehow fell off? Have you been on the sidelines watching from a distance and are waiting to engage? Always remember there’s no time like the present. At any given point in our life’s journey we have a choice to take advantage of multiple opportunities that cross our paths, to engage and to take control of the direction of our life. It’s NEVER too late. It truly IS up to each of us. Make the decision to live life as a VICTOR and not a victim. Decide this day how you will live your dash. Each of us has two choices… to live our life by default or by DESIGN! Which will YOU choose?
