Young Living LeaderA leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” – John C. Maxwell

That quote came from one of John Maxwell’s books. All his books are really good reading. If you want to create income in your Young Living Business, it is important that you immediately start thinking and acting like a leader. As soon as you sponsor your first downline member, you ARE A LEADER. The question is, where are you leading your team?

Think about the example you are setting as a distributor and as a leader. Whatever you do, your team will generally do pretty much the same thing.

Habits of a Successful Leader

  • Be a Product of the Products – In other words, you must be using Young Living products. You can not recommend people buy products you aren’t using yourself. It also really helps when you LOVE the product. Since your team will follow your example, you will want them to see you using and expressing your love for the products. Share your favorite oil tips.

  • Leaders Are Readers – Have the reading habits of a leader. There are books, audios, Facebook Groups, newsletters & blogs written by upline and other Young Living leaders. Learning and growing is one of the most important aspects of a good leader. Learn from those who have had success and can show you the way.

  • A Leader Takes ACTION – They are self starters and they do what it takes and they blaze a trail for team members to follow. They work on their business every day or at least 5 days a week. Most people are not successful simply because they never begin to take the right actions.

  • A Leader Takes Responsibility – They take charge of their own business and treat it as a business. They proceed with the attitude, “If it is to be, it’s up to ME!

  • Leaders COMMUNICATE With Their Team – There are a lot of ways to communicate. A phone call, send a text, team Facebook Group, email, postal mail, meetings, newsletter or blog, etc. Oil tips can be small but powerful when shared.

  • Leaders Attend Company Events – Events are where you associate with others who are on the same road to success. You can learn from each other and get fired up and motivated to press on. These days there are online events too. Keep up with what is going on with Young Living.

  • Leaders Have Vision – Leaders know where they are going and how they are going to get there. They focus on their goals and they make a plan to get there. They don’t allow problems and obstacles to stop them in reaching their destination. Since they know where they are going, if something comes up that blocks the road, they just make a detour and keep heading toward the goal.
  • These are just a few traits of a successful leader. Remember, You set the pace. Work on the traits that will lead your team to success.
