Young Living Business Building Goals and Resolutions
WOW! Here we are again. Another year has passed by. It seems like the years are going by faster and faster. I know that is not true. A year is the same number of days as always. I guess it just feels like it is going by faster as we are getting older.

I have always loved this time of year because this is the time of year that people set new goals for the upcoming year. I have never been 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.

Every year it is a good plan to look back at the previous year and think about different things that have happened up to this point. 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 that you learned or ways you could get a better outcome.

Young Living Gratitude Essential Oil

Young Living Gratitude Essential Oil

Not only is it important to be regularly analyzing things and improving as we go, it is also important to express Gratitude and celebrate the successes of the previous year.

One thing I am grateful for and I celebrate almost daily is the ability to work from home. If you are supplementing your family’s income or working full time from home, celebrate. It is such a blessing. Start there. Celebrate the power you have to generate whatever amount of income you want, either on the side or fulltime.

Celebrating is really important because it sets a success energy that attracts more good things. I recommend you use Young Living Gratitude Essential Oil Blend while you are doing this. Gratitude oil has a very abundance attracting energy. It also smells WONDERFUL and is very uplifting.

Three Reasons to Reflect on and 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 early days, when I was afraid to step into the leadership role, I am amazed at how far I have come. Network Marketing is the best business for personal growth and with Young Living we have awesome essential oils that enhance progress in so many ways.

After you have finished reflecting on the previous year, you can make a plan of action for the upcoming 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 this year. 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.

It is also good to reflect on your WHY. Why you are building this business.

Take Action. If you don’t take action, NOTHING will happen. Actually you need to take appropriate action. Some people fiddle with this and that doing “business tasks” and are not really doing action that amounts to making progress.


Every morning ask yourself, “What can I do today to MOVE my business forward toward the success of my goals for my Young Living business?” What can I do today to get more people to ask me about essential oils?


WHO am I?

Let me give you some clues.

Exactly WHO IS ME?

I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden.
I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
Success Habits

I am completely at your command.
Half of the things you do you might as well turn
over to me and I will do them – quickly and correctly.

I am easily managed – you must be firm with me.
Show me exactly how you want something done
and after a few lessons, I will do it automatically.

I am the servant of great people, and alas, of all failures as well.
Those who are great, I have made great.
Those who are failures, I have made failures.

I am not a machine though, however . . .
I work with the precision of a machine
plus the intelligence of a person.

You may run me for profit or run me for ruin –
it makes no difference to me.

Take me, train me, be firm with me, and I will place the world at your feet.
Be easy with me and I will destroy you.
Who am I?


It’s the habits you develop that determine your success in your Young Living Business or anything else.

As Jim Rohn said, “Work more on yourself than you work on your business.” Working on personal development is one of the best habits you can form. Not only working on mindset but also working on the skills you need to become a professional in your business.

In any business, you have to learn the ropes. There is ALWAYS a learning curve. There is training. Even if you work at McDonalds or Walmart, you have a training process to go through. You learn to take orders, run the cash register, learn about all the products, you learn how to deal with customers and a multitude of other things.

There is a big difference in the learning you learn as a business owner. You are learning skills that can either make you rich or make you struggle and fail in your business.

“You can never have, “do” or receive more than your own habits predict.”

Ask yourself, What habits am I developing that will insure the success I want for myself and my family. Are my habits productive or are they getting in the way of my success? We all need a self evaluating sometimes. We all go through periods of time where we are needing a kick in the pants.

Habit of Reading

Here are a couple good habits we all should be doing every day:

  • Read a few pages of a good book every day. Read something that will develop success mindset or skills you need for your business.
  • Listen to training webinars and . There are lots of excellent trainers out there that have awesome training. People who have built a successful business and share how they have done it.

Young Living Convention this year was one of the most exciting I have seen in 28 years with this company. The opening was started off with Mary singing the convention theme song “Ignite Your Journey Home” with Jacob & Kait joining in and then Josef shifts it into a high energy finish that gets the crowd on their feet.

The Convention Oil this year is called Ignite Your Journey. Young Living Essential Oil Blend

The convention theme is Ignite Your Journey and about YL going back to really talking about what makes us DIFFERENT!!

It’s time to get serious!

It is definitely not a secret that Gary Young is the modern-day father of essential oils, but few people know the history of how Gary started researching the traditional methods of distilling botanicals. Gary was designing and testing better distillers long before creating the company Young Living Essential Oils in 1994.

We are the original. The ones others try to COPY but they can never get close. They have nothing like YL. There is so much to share and so little space. You will want to visit the Oiled Wisdom site for NEWS!

Two really exciting things we now have access to and can SHARE!

  • YL Patents on distillation techniques and products.
  • Certificates of Analysis are now available and sharable. You will find them in the YL Digital Library.

Along this line, they announced the new DeepSpectra distillation technology which gets heavier molecules for an even higher quality essential oil. Two patents pending, so until those are through, they are keeping details vague because of the copy cats. This is HUGE!!! No other essential oil company has this!! NONE!

Did you know?

More patents have been filed by Young Living than any other direct sales company. A patent is what separates an industry leader like Young Living from the copy cat company or a me too product.

Young Living has been issued 17 patents from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Plus, two more patents pending on the new DeepSpectra distillation technology.

Companies without patents are copycat companies. They dont have farms or innovation like we do.

All of that is really exciting but there is even MORE! One if the new products isn’t really new at all. It’s the return of one of our original favorites. Thanks to YL Rosewood tree reforestation . . .

Can you guess what essential oil blend had rosewood? It’s VALOR!! I was just giddy with delight when they announced that the original Valor blend is back. It has always been a favorite of mine and the one precious original bottle I have left has been used mostly for sniffing and wearing in my bra. 😁 You know, for the radiating energy.

Original Valor was discontinued years ago because there was no sustainable source of Rosewood. But not any more! Young Living now has a sustainable source of Rosewood on a YL partner farm in the Amazon basin where the branches and leaves are used instead of the entire tree.

The rosewood reforestation project is so awesome. This is one of the things I love about Young Living. Learn more about some of YL reforestation projects here:

It’s time to get SERIOUS!

For too long we have talked about Seed to Seal but many of our teams don’t even really know what that means. Yes, we have farms but there is SO MUCH MORE. Those farms have distillers and GARY designed them. I am working on a history of Young Living Essential Oil Distilling on the Oiled Wisdom site:

These days people really need Young Living. I have been with Young Living for over 28 years. I have been here all those years. Never left. I was here when the only other oil companies were perfume grade oils. I was here before there were ANY other network marketing oil companies. I have seen the Young Living history from the EARLY days and visited the farms, Seen the DISTILLING!

I have seen various essential oil companies come up and try to copy. They can’t even come close.

The history of Young Living Distilling tells a LOT. Gary studied and learned distilling, then designed a better distillation system. He tested, tested, tested to get the distillery design better and better, to get the HIGHEST quality essential oils.

I am more excited than ever to be part of this wonderful company. It’s time to get serious and Ignite Your Journey with Young Living!


Having a growth mindset is a really important key in the success of your Young Living business. It doesn’t matter if you plan a full time income or a part time supplemental income.

A growth mindset is the belief that you can improve and grow with effort and perseverance. If you trouble in this area, grab a bottle of Young Living’s Believe essential oil blend. Apply and inhale whenever you are feeling doubts about your ability to grow.

People with a growth mindset don’t beat up on themselves whenever they make a mistake. They learn from their mistakes. They make adjustments and keep on going when they have setbacks.

There are many things that you can do to develop a growth mindset.

Here are some tips on how to do that:

  • Set goals and track your progress. – Know where you want to go in your Young Living business. Set small goals and larger ones. Keep those goals in mind as you are working toward them. Use Magnify Your Purpose oil blend and think about the goals and how you will grow with each step.
  • Read about or listen to people with a growth mindset similar to the direction you want to make progress in. Listen to audios and videos. Watch Facebook Lives on the USAYoungLiving Facebook page. A recent Win the Week had Diamond leader Lori Borre talking about how to draw people into oily conversations and sell without feeling icky. She starts speaking at about 22 minutes into the video. It’s awesome!! Massive growth here.

    Lori also has a book The Harvest – Service Driven Sales In A Me Driven World.

    Follow people on Instagram and Facebook and watch how they are talking about using the oils in every day living, not selling and pitching but sharing how they are living healthy.

  • Learn some Sharing Ideas and choose what fits your style and have them in mind and prepared for oily conversations.
  • Take on challenging tasks. Try something new. Make a video or show yourself making a DIY recipe. Have an oil class. Start with using oils in front of people. Share a drop of Stress Away.
  • Remember the essential oil blends that help with growth mindset. Some examples are Magnify Your Purpose, Abundance, Believe, Envision, Highest Potential, Transformation, Valor.

By focusing a growth mindset, you can grow your Young Living business into whatever degree of success you want.


If you want to achieve success in your Young Living business, you need consistent income producing activity. The key to success is consistency. If you want to be creating some exciting success in your team, you need to be taking action in your business on a consistent basis.

Taking small actions consistently over time can add up to some big results. If taking action is hard for you, if you have a hard time motivating yourself to call people or get out to network, there is a simple process that will make this so much easier for you. If you practice this little skill for even a couple of weeks, you will notice that taking action in your business feels as easy as putting on your shoes.

Just like building a muscle in your body, you start small. You want to do many repetitions, and then gradually add more weight.

Building an Activity Muscle

    Start small
    Many repetitions
    Gradually add weight

This activity will be helpful for those times that you feel like you are starting over after a period of time where you have found your activity dropping off. Things happen – Illness, a son or daughter getting married, depression, etc. You will have times when you need a reboot. I’m with you there. For me, postcard size flyers, leave behinds and drop cards directing people to my web site.

First step of building an activity muscle is to make a list of actions to grow your team.


  • EVERY DAY wear an oil that will cause someone to comment on how good you smell (opening to say: “I’m wearing natural Essential Oils because I prefer a toxin free perfume. This one is called Stress Away. It smells great and who doesn’t want a little Stress Away these days? Have you ever used Essential Oils? …” Use Abundance, Stress Away or other oil choice. Mention what oil and why you like it. Be compliant. ) Have your 30 second commercial prepared (a brief word or two about how to get more information) and something printed with your referral link ready.

  • Pass out 3 or more flyers a day (invites to oil class, Toxin Free Living audio or other online presentation)
  • Connecting with 3 new people a day online or offline
  • More ideas below.

Once you have a list of actions, choose a couple things from that list and create a very simple action plan.
When you create your plan, add ONLY the actions you feel confident that you will actually complete.

Choose the easiest ones that you know you will follow through with and start with these. If connecting with 3 new people a day feels too hard, simplify it to ONE a day. You can add more as your activity muscle gets stronger. If daily feels too difficult, try a weekly goal. For example: If 3 flyers a day seems too stressful, set a goal for 5 a week or whatever feels right for you. Make sure you have plenty of flyers with you so you don’t miss opportunities.

You can always do more but for this first stem of the activity muscle process you want to UNDER PROMISE so it is easy for you to succeed.

You want to be able to say to yourself, “I can do that!” and then easily follow through. Your mindset is very important. Having the “I can do that!” belief will help you make progress much faster. Use Believe oil blend.

Second step is to reward yourself every time you follow through and complete those actions. This is very important because any behavior that gets rewarded becomes automatic. You can come up with any kind of reward you like but it should be something simple that brings a sense of joy or makes you feel good. These days I reward myself by painting, drawing or playing a game. Reward yourself with something fun. 😉

Don’t sweat the results. If you make several calls and no one seems interested in meeting with you or you host an event and no one buys anything, don’t sweat that. It’s ok. At this point you just want to be taking action and rewarding yourself when you follow through.

Some of those people who said no in the beginning will eventually see your success and the fun you are having and will want to join you. Stick with it and watch and see how that happens.

Keep working at building your activity muscle. After a couple weeks, you will get stronger, your confidence will grow and you will be able to do more. You may even find yourself taking on new things you thought you would never be able to do.
