Make A Young Living Success Plan For 2016

Can you believe it? Another year has passed. This is one of my favorite times of the year. This is the time to spend reflect on the past year and make plans for the new year. January is one of the best months of the year for finding new business associates. It is the beginning of a new year and it is the time people decide to change things in their life. For many people, it is a time to begin building a business that can change their life from one of making ends meet to one of abundance. They start the new year off making resolutions. I’m not one for New Year’s Resolutions. People usually don’t take those seriously, however, I am a firm believer in setting goals and making action plans to achieve those goals.


I generally begin by thinking about the different things that have happened in the year to this point but also in the years prior in my Young Living career. Reflecting on both the good things that happened and things that weren’t so good. Don’t spend much time on the things that weren’t so good but just enough time to take note of anything you learned or ways you can improve in the future.


Not only is it important to be regularly analyzing things and improving as you go, it is also important to celebrate the successes of the previous year. Celebrating is really important because it sets a success energy that attracts more good things.


Three Reasons to Reflect on and Celebrate Success:celebrate-success


1. We train our subconscious to be aware and open to success and abundance.
2. We give our subconscious and conscious mind PROOF of our success and progress.
3. It builds self-esteem, confidence and belief in our abilities.


Some things to include in your reflection:


Any successes large and small. Even the things you consider small. Some of these small successes are stepping stones to larger successes.


New things you learned – This is a huge one that people often forget to include. Reflect on all the training you have taken, books you have read, videos & audios and live events you have attended, anything that has been good for growth in your personal development or business skills. Really celebrate this one knowing that training and personal development is the biggest success secret of network marketing professionals who earn full time income.


Don’t forget the things you learned by trial and error. Like when you began learning to write a blog or make a video.


There are lots of things you can add to your list. I recommend writing down your reflections. If you have been following my training for any length of time, you should have this done from previous years and have saved them. If so, take out some of your past years reflections and look at the progress over the years. This is really fun.


Reflecting on the progress you have made builds confidence. When I look back on the girl who was terrified to be a leader, I am amazed at how far I have come. It always gets me choked up as I write and reflect on how I have changed. Network Marketing is the best business for personal growth.


plansAfter you have finished reflecting on the previous year, you can make a plan of action for the next year. What will you do to increase your business? How will you improve on your marketing skills and what will you do to implement. Think about where you want to be at the end of 2016. Write that down. Then make a list of all the things you plan to do to get there.


Writing all of this down is very important. It helps you have a direction for the year. Keep a copy of both the reflecting of the previous year and the plan for next year. It is really empowering to look back at the things you have accomplished in the past and how far you have come, especially when you have the notes for several years. You can see your growth over the years which is such a confidence booster.

Is Your Business Missing This Important Ingredient For Success?

One thing I have learned in over 20 years in the network marketing profession is that you need to have an ongoing program for personal development. There are many reasons this is important. In the beginning of your network marketing career you need to learn and build confidence.

The world is always changing. There are new tools, technologies and new things happening. You need to keep learning and applying the things you learned to your life and your business.

Another are that personal development helps is motivation. Whenever I feel unmotivated I like to put on an audio book and listen to some of pearls of wisdom. Jim Rohn has always been my favorite but there are lots of good, inspiring books and audios.

Here is a partial list of my favorite books and audios. I have many of these in both book and audio form. I recommend having books in tablet or Kindle for times when you are waiting. You should be able to find most of these books on Amazon.

Are You Sharpening Your Skills?


“You can cut down a tree with a hammer, but it takes about 30 days. If you trade the hammer for an ax, you can cut it down in about 30 minutes. The difference between 30 days and 30 minutes is skills.” – Jim Rohn


Leaders are readers and readers are earners. Even distributors who are already very successful still continue to read books, listen to audios, take online training courses and go to seminars and workshops to sharpen their skills. If you would like a full time income in Young Living, you need to think and act like a professional. Professionals are always sharpening their skills. Are you sharpening yours?


In the beginning network marketing can feel a little out of your comfort zone. If you spend a little time every day reading and listening to audios. Your comfort zone will expand. Attend events, seminars and workshops and you will sharpen your skills even more.


One way to sharpen your skills is to hang around people who are successful in the business. Observe what they do. Listen when they speak. Follow them on Facebook and other social media and observe how they connect with people. Pay attention. You can learn a lot from other leaders in Young Living.


Keep up with things that are going on in the company and with anything that affects your business. It’s no different than any other profession like accountants, lawyers, people in the medical profession, hair stylists, etc. You have to keep up with any changes going on. There are always changes. There are new ways to market and promote your business. Eighteen years ago, when I began building my Young Living business, we did not use social media. Today it is a big part of both business building and training downline. Times change.


Have fun learning, growing and sharpening your network marketing skills.

Time To Update Goals and Business Plans For A New Year

Every year I look back at the different things that have happened in the year to this point but also in the years prior in my Young Living Career.
