Distributors often look at successful people with Young Living and they see the results they have had and they start comparing their own results or lack of results. Sometimes they assume that the successful people had some magic system or they had a huge marketing budget or they just lucked out and sponsored workers in their downline. Some even put it up to having the right upline.


When you are looking at the successful distributors in Young Living, you need to look at their habits. It’s their daily habits that are the reason they are successful in Young Living.


What are the habits of successful Young Living Distributors?

  • They know they are the CEO of their own business. They know success is up to them. They go by the philosophy, “If it is to be, it’s up to ME.
  • They focus on their WHY. Why they want a successful business.
  • They are prospecting to 10-20 people a day rather than one or 2 a month.
  • They check their email and respond quickly to emails or phone calls.
  • They follow up on interest.
  • They know the importance of DAILY personal development: reading books, newsletters, audios.
  • They attend Young Living Events in their local area or state.
  • They attend Grand Convention.
  • They listen to conference calls and replays of calls when they can’t be on the live call.
  • They are paying attention to company news: Upline newsletters, company newsletters, conference calls, Facebook Groups, etc.
  • They set goals and work toward them.
  • They don’t wait until they know each and every step before they take even one. They just get started.
  • They focus on abundance instead of lack.


Here is a poem I have loved for several years:

habit
I Can Make You Great or I Can Make You A Failure


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.


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.


I MAKE GREAT PEOPLE—-That is a CLUE.


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?


I am HABIT.


January is always an exciting month. It’s a new year and lots of people have set resolutions to increase income and make other changes in their life. It is a great time to turn things up a notch or two in your business. Set your goals and move forward to success. I love the statement one of my mentors often said, “You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.” Make adjustments as you are going. It’s like moving a car. You have to be moving before you can make a turn.


Have a very successful 2014!


Key to Success in Young Living BusinessThere is a secret that that successful marketers know that ensures they sponsor people every week and every month. It’s really not that much of a secret but to some distributors it seems to be a concept that is difficult to grasp.


The secret is having a marketing mindset. That means that you have marketing in mind at all times, even when you are doing things totally not related to business.


I can’t stress enough that you need to keep marketing in mind at all times. If you really want to earn income with your Young Living business, you need to have marketing in mind every day. What does that mean? It doesn’t mean pitching people all the time but it does mean that you are ready when the opportunity arises.


When you have marketing in mind, you are prepared, alert and actually looking for ways to promote. Promotion can be dropping seeds that may not produce something right away. It can be as simple as using oils in front of people and wearing certain oils whenever you are in public so people comment on how good you smell. I wear Abundance oil ALWAYS. It smells great and people comment on it. You can respond by saying, “It’s an essential oil blend called Abundance. It’s one of my favorite mood uplifting oils, plus it attracts good things.” Then . . .


Whenever you talk to people about why you smell so great, that’s an opening for a short comment on essential oils.


Don’t forget to use oils regularly in front of people and be prepared to respond with a short comment to see if there is interest. Always carry information to give people who are interested. This information must have your contact info and web site.


There are many orphans every month because of people who talked with someone about Young Living Essential Oils but ended the conversation without giving anything that would help them know what to do next. They Google and find someone to enroll under. Prospect lost to another Young Living Distributor.


There are lots of ways to promote your Young Living business but you should always be using at least 3-5 marketing methods at all times. If you do this EVERY Day, and always keep marketing in mind, no matter what you are doing, you will be able to sponsor people EVERY month.


I believe true success means fulfillment!

Do you remember the movie “City Slickers?” Billy Crystal and two cohorts are about to celebrate turning 40. They are talking about and searching for the meaning of life. In one scene Billy says to a classroom full of young people, “Value this time in your life kids. This is the time when you still have your choices. It goes by so fast. When you are a teenager, you think you can do anything and you do. Your 20’s are a blur, 30’s raise your family. You make a little money. You say to yourself, “What happened to my 20’s?” “40’s grow a pot belly: grow another chin. Music starts to get too loud. One of your old girlfriends from high school becomes a grandmother. 50’s you have minor surgery, you call it a procedure, but it’s surgery. 60’s you have a major surgery, the music is still too loud, but it doesn’t matter because you can’t hear it anyway. 70’s you and your wife retire to Fort Lauderdale. You start eating your dinner at 2 0’clock in the afternoon. You have lunch at 10 and breakfast the night before. You spend most of your time wondering in the Mall looking for the ultimate soft yogurt and muttering ‘How come the kids don’t call?’ The 80’s you will have a major stroke. You end up babbling to a Jamaican nurse your wife can’t stand, but you call Momma. Any questions?”

How pitiful! But so true most of the time! This surely DOES NOT describe a truly successful, fulfilled life!

True success means fulfillment. In every area of life, people choose to enjoy success. Yes, in EVERY area from family and spiritual to career and finances, we all DESIRE to be fulfilled and prosper.

So why don’t we? We fail to INTENT our life to be fulfilled. We let life just happen to us! TODAY is the day for INTENTION! Your intention precedes ACTION. Because what you think BEFORE you DO… Changes the DOING or action. The intention coupled with action results in enjoying a life of purpose and meaning. You will live to learn and learn to live!

So don’t wait another day day! Make your intention this very day to fill your life with people, happiness, joy, gratitude, and abundance. Don’t wait till you are up in years and then look back with regret, (if you even live that long). Then, take action and share with others your dreams and desires. Help them find theirs as well, so neither you nor they will end up like Billy Crystal and his two co-horts in the movie “City Slickers.” Yes, true success means fulfillment!

Abundantly,

You never know when you are going to have an opportunity to stir up some interest in the product or business opportunity. I have never been one who could easily approach strangers and start talking about my business or products. Maybe you feel uncomfortable with that too. Most of us feel that way.


There is a way to make talking with strangers feel natural and comfortable. If you approach every stranger as a friend you haven’t met yet and just smile and say “HI!”


The key is to ALWAYS BE READY! Always ready to connect with people. That begins with being friendly and having a warm approachable energy that you sending out.


When you are standing in a line at the grocery store or sitting in a waiting room or a variety of other places, there are often opportunities to stir interest in your product or business opportunity. Are you aware and watching for these opportunities?


Young Living Wearable Advertising
One way to help get conversations started is to wear an article of clothing, jewelry or accessory with a company slogan or a product slogan.


I remember a wonderful pin we used to have that said, “May the Immupower be with you!” That one was great for getting people to ask questions. People were constantly asking what that meant. It was an easy opening for a conversation. I really wish Young Living would bring those back. Sadly I gave my last one as a distributor gift, not realizing it was my last one.

Think about what Young Living has that you can use to stimulate questions. Make sure you have something prepared to say when people ask questions. Also, be sure you are prepared to share a brochure, flyer or other prospecting item. It’s best if you can also get their phone number and arrange to meet for a one on one or invite to a class but also, get something in their hands. There is a spot on the back page of brochures to put your contact information. Don’t forget to do this. Be sure to include your web site address.


There are several good sources for brochures. For prospecting tools from Sound Concepts, go to http://www.crowndiamondtools.com


There are 3 things that will help you attract prospects wherever you go:


1. Have a warm friendly smile on your face.


2. Be conversational with people around you. Look people in the eye and say “Hello. How are you today?” Just be friendly and talk to people. If you appear stressed out and closed off, people will not want to talk. You will also find it difficult to talk to them. You must truly be in a warm and friendly mood. If not, you will repel people rather than attract them.


3. Use a product in front of people. Essential oils are easy to use in front of people and the smell often stimulates questions. I carry an oils pouch and often open it and apply an oil in front of people. My favorites are the ones that are mood uplifting and great smelling. Christmas Spirit or Abundance are the ones I use most because people will comment on how great it smells. I respond with, “I needed an emotional pick me up. Would you like to try a drop?” Then, depending on the level of interest, I often ask if they are familiar with therapeutic grade essential oils.

Well, there you have it. There are lots more ideas for building your Young Living business but hopefully these will help you get the wheels turning. Have fun!!
