Wow! What a week. The Young Living 2016 Convention has wrapped up and my brain is so full. I haven’t really processed everything yet.
The theme was Live Your Passion. It was almost surreal to be surrounded by so many other people who are crazy in love with this company, living their passion to have a healthy lifestyle.
One thing that always impresses me about Young Living gatherings is that there is very very little talk about money. I have heard about other companies and how their conventions are centered around the business in a “rah, rah you can be a millionaire!” kind of way.
Not Young Living. Money is just NOT the focus. The focus is the people – serving, caring for, and honoring the people who are part of this company. How can their lives be made better? Is it through a product that will help their wellness, or maybe it is through helping a struggling mom start a business to help her family. It is refreshing to see everyone from the CEO on down, truly enjoying and caring about people.
Yes, there are business building workshops – that’s what we are there for, but the focus is still “how can we help people?” Mentioning paychecks or amounts of money would seem tacky there because overall the people are so humble and so thankful for what they get to do.
I am grateful to be surrounded by people who challenge me to grow. To step out of my comfort zone. I have been resisting (fearing, to be honest) doing video. But video is the king of social media now and it isn’t going away so I knew I needed to get over myself or get left behind.
I made a short video for my team, and my coach has lovingly pushed me to share it here.
Pardon the rambling…I am still very sleep deprived 😀
