Here is a great quote from Craig Aramaki, “Don’t sell the products! Instead, fall in love with the products and then, sell that love. Your passion is your purpose.”


Craig Aramaki is chief marketing officer at Young Living Essential Oils . He made that comment at the 2013 Grand Convention. It’s a really powerful statement and one you should think about. How much do you love the products? What about Young Living Essential Oils as a company?


I have been with Young Living for over 16 years. I started building my business because of how much I love the oils and what they have done for me and my family both physically and emotionally. It was Abundance oil that lifted me out of severe depression. Within minutes of using that oil I felt wonderful. It was that shift that made me realize how much I could help others with these oils.


I could never be successful building a business with products I didn’t truly LOVE! I have been involved with several companies and affiliate programs on the side over the years for products and services I use. Some of them I attempted to build a side income with but I had very little success with any of those other programs. Each one has paled in comparison to Young Living. I guess it was good because they all made me appreciate what we have in Young Living and how special this company really is.


To be really successful in Young Living, you really need to understand and appreciate how unique the company and products are. I know most people say that about their company but NONE can say things that Young Living Distributors can say about our company.


It is IMPORTANT that YOU, as a Young Living Distributor who is serious about success, get to know the things that make our company truly unique. First by using the products and becoming a product of the product. Using the products you will have your own stories to tell.


Second, learn how Young Living goes above and beyond what is normal to produce the highest quality essential oils in the world. Get to know the ways Young Living is different from other network marketing companies and other essential oil companies.

The Cookie Thief – Read at Young Living Convention 2013

The poem below was read at Young Living Convention 2013. It’s a good one because it gets you thinking. We see things from our own perspective but sometimes we are wrong. That’s why we need to listen to other people and widen our scope of vision and understanding. It applies to a lot of things in life and your Young Living business.


Anyway . . .


The Cookie Thief
A woman was waiting at an airport one night, with several long hours before her flight. She hunted forCookie Thief Poem a book in the airport shops, bought a bag of cookies and found a place to drop.


She was engrossed in her book but happened to see, that the man sitting beside her, as bold as could be. . . grabbed a cookie or two from the bag in between, which she tried to ignore to avoid a scene.


So she munched the cookies and watched the clock, as the gutsy cookie thief diminished her stock. She was getting more irritated as the minutes ticked by, thinking, “If I wasn’t so nice, I would blacken his eye.”


With each cookie she took, he took one too, when only one was left, she wondered what he would do. With a smile on his face, and a nervous laugh, he took the last cookie and broke it in half.


He offered her half, as he ate the other, she snatched it from him and thought… oooh, brother. This guy has some nerve and he’s also rude, why he didn’t even show any gratitude!


She had never known when she had been so galled, and sighed with relief when her flight was called. She gathered her belongings and headed to the gate, refusing to look back at the thieving ingrate.


She boarded the plane, and sank in her seat, then she sought her book, which was almost complete. As she reached in her baggage, she gasped with surprise, there was her bag of cookies, in front of her eyes.


If mine are here, she moaned in despair, the others were his, and he tried to share. Too late to apologize, she realized with grief, that she was the rude one, the ingrate, the thief.
