Highlights from John Maxwell – Young Living Convention 2019

Young Living 2019 Convention featuring John MaxwellJohn Maxell, a #1 New York Times bestselling author, and internationally recognized leadership expert, and coach, was our keynote speaker at Convention, and was very inspiring with new ingenious insights into leadership with business and how to succeed in this fast-paced world.

I felt it was important to share these notes, because change is so rapid today, one must do so much more than just staying the course to be successful.

Very interesting that when he was growing up his parents paid him to read books, rather than doing chores around the house, giving him a lot of insight early on.  He mentioned he has written 83 books.

SUCCESS

John Maxwell1. Relationships

  • Connect well with people [How to Win Friends & Influence People]
  • Money where values are
  • Winning with People– People won’t go along with you, if they can’t get along with you.
  • Everyone communicates, but few connect

2. Attitude is the difference maker

  • Attitude only shows up in adversity & difficulty.
  • Have Tenacity – get back up.
  • Everything worthwhile is uphill all the way. Downhill habits can’t go uphill.

3. Equip

  • How to train & develop others
  • How you compound

4. How to develop Priorities

  • Activity does not equal Priorities (This is HUGE!!!)
  • Power of 5 (focus on every day)
    1. Priorities – Need to know what you want to accomplish—be very specific – with goals and purpose.
    2. Right tools – to achieve goal.
    3. Stay focused – everyday do the same thing with focus.
    4. Take action – nothing happens unless you take action ~ Dreams are free but the journey isn’t!
    5. Be consistent (every day) – consistency compounds!  Read, think, file, ask questions, write…. Consistency is the most underrated tool!

5. Personal Growth and development- Two Questions — Huge

    1. What are you doing to develop yourself?
      • Growth is NOT automatic
      • Must grow Intentionally
      • A growth plan increases your capacity. Be around people that are ahead of you – this is a growth environment because you are out of your comfort zone.

    2. How well do you lead?  How well do you succeed?  Build business by developing yourself.  Leadership culture about what you want.

Leadership/21 Laws

  • Law of the Lid – How well you lead equals how well you succeed
  • Lid of leadership keeps business from not going any higher
  • Everyone can learn to lead
    1. Build your business by building leadership (culture) (Power & culture)
    2. Culture eats vision for lunch
    3. Go with what you do = where you go

Law of Process takes time to develop leaders- “Crock Potting” leader- process timing, speed and ability

Leader Shift— Maxwell’s New Book

Adaptability- keep learning- learn and unlearn…… be flexible.

Be aware

Process – Circle of Success— 5 Parts

1. Test– continually testing.  Fail a lot.

2. Failure – Result of Testing (Trial & Error)

    • Failure – process to success; NOT opposite of success. Fail forward.  What did you learn?  Test/Fail/Learn/Learn to Improve/Try Again
    • Have the ability to constantly move and be flexible.
    • Value yesterday – live in today.  Yesterday ended last night; get over it.  Never rely on yesterday to succeed

3. Rely on speed – but thrive on timing.  All leaders see a bigger picture, but see it quicker.  See it first- go for it first –huge advantage over others.

    • Before (how it used to work): The one who got started first sees before other sees

4. The Big Picture will keep getting bigger and brighter– (a sign you are moving in the right direction.).  The future arrives unannounced.

    • Manager – thinking about today
    • Leader – thinking about tomorrow

5. Live in today – think about tomorrow.  Be present- living today but thinking tomorrow.   What I do today won’t make me successful unless I’m are also thinking about tomorrow!

Live until you die.

His latest book, Leadershift: The 11 Essential Changes Every Leader Must Embrace, covers this in detail.

4 Simple Things you can do for Blissful Toes for Summer!

Blissful Toes for Summer! Using Essential Oils

Peppermint Essential Oil, Lemon Essential Oil, Lavendar Essential Oil, Stress AwayHere are 4 simple things you can do to ensure that your feet are smooth, sexy, feel good and look good for sandal season, Check it out!

1. Are you drinking enough water daily? Your skin can lose close to a quart of water during the day- even more in dry climates.  So be sure you are hydrating yourself everyday to prevent dry skin especially on the heel area.

2. Soak your feet- fill a basin with warm water and add some bath salts. Then add a few drops of YL essential oils like Lemon or Peppermint, which is refreshing and cooling for the feet, and will also soften the skin.  Lavender oil or Stress Away is more for evening or when you want to relax.

3. Scrub your feet – no time to get in for a pedicure? Here is a great DIY recipe, as well as info on Young Living’s latest luxurious solution for smooth and blissful feet:

Coconut Lavender Salt scrub– this is a nice remedy for cracked feet because it exfoliates and yet helps to moisturize.  Mix the following in a jar

                1 cup coarse salt

                ¼ cup coconut oil

                ¼ cup Vitamin E oil

                Young Living’s NEW Lavamint Softening Foot Scrub 5 drops Lavender oil

Apply to your feet and gently scrub them…rinse and pat dry.

Young Living’s NEW Lavamint Softening Foot Scrub a lovely treat for your feet! Black volcanic sand from Iceland, Diatomaceous earth, coconut shell powder combined with Lavender, Spearmint and Peppermint oils are key ingredients.

Massage into dry feet, including toes, soles and heels and then apply a small amount of warm water to transform the gel base into a milky lotion.  Continue scrubbing wet feet, and clean with a damp towel or rinse in water.  Keeps your feet smooth and sandal ready!

4. Moisturize! Young Living Rose OintmentA final and very important step!

Nancy Sanderson created a great nail ointment using the Young Living Rose Ointment.

It is great for nail growth, moisturizing the skin around nails, and soothing for many skin irritations.  (small batch recipe here)

Soothing Nail Ointment

1 tablespoon Young Living Rose Ointment

1 teaspoon Organic Coconut oil- regular or fractionated or YL V-6 Mixing oil

2 drops YL Geranium Essential oil

2 drops YL Citrus Fresh Essential oil

2 drops YL Myrrh Essential oil

2 drops YL Lavender Essential oil

1 drop YL Rose Essential oil (optional)

If you feel drawn to adding additional oils that is fine.  Do some research with your Essential Oil Desk Reference!   www.discoverlsp.com

Mix all together – I used a small spoon and put into a little jar.

Apply daily- morning and night to nails and rough heels and watch what happens!

Men like it too, as it is very relaxing!

Fresh Ideas For A New Young Living Essential Oil Blend

New Young Living Essential Oil BlendSpring is around the corner! It’s time for love, joy and appreciation for you!

Remember life is meant to be fun, and we can shift the discord of the day. We can easily bring back our balance and energy, by raising our frequency with the use of Young Living essential oils.

Young Living Australian Kuranya essential oil blendA new blend that I have started experimenting with is the Young Living Australian Kuranya essential oil blend.

The term “Kuranya” means “Rainbow” and is a beautiful synergic blend of oils that I am finding to be very powerful. Each oil in this blend comes from a different area in Australia.

Young Living Thieves Household CleanerIt has an earthy aroma, which is very uplifting and is great in the diffuser purifying the air with a light woodsy scent.

I also added a few drops of it to my Thieves cleaner spray bottle that I mix up and use to clean throughout the house.

(One capful of Young Living Thieves Household Cleaner in a glass spray bottle, filled with purified water–shake and you have a wonderful non-chemical, multi-purpose cleaner for most any job in the house!)

Young Living Rose OintmentAs you know traveling does put added stress on the body. Being in many different hotel rooms, and being subject to different water in the shower, I noticed some dryness on my face. Because of the Melaleuca Ericifolia, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Tea Tree essential oils in this blend, I knew it would be soothing for the skin, so I added a drop to a little dab of the gentle Young Living Rose Ointment and applied it to those dry, and itchy spots. It immediately shifted my skin and calmed everything down.

Another interesting thing to note is the Lemon Myrtle in this blend adds a very uplifting and invigorating sweet lemon scent that encourages follow-through with goals. Wow! An added plus on the emotional side which was good for my schedule! Other oils in this blend are Blue Cypress, Sacred Sandalwood, Kunzea, and Fennel.

It’s a winner for me, and want to hear how it helped you in your daily regimen!

Blessings for an especially joyful and love-filled month!

Enhance your Wellness with Essential Oils, and Pumpkin!

Enhance Your Wellness with Essential OilsThis is my favorite time of year with the amazing color of golds and orange everywhere! The leaves sparkling in the sunshine, and the beautiful harvest of vegetables seen at the farmers markets is so colorful and uplifting!! Not only is the color of orange rejuvenating and activating, but the healing energy of the pumpkin is very undervalued!

Wanted to take the opportunity to share about this amazing squash and highlight how to easily add pumpkin to your life! Of note, I am talking about pure pumpkin—not pumpkin spice mocha latte frappe!! The sugar and refined flours cancel out the benefits of the pumpkin!

More than just a Halloween decoration, it is a very rich source of zeaxanthin, lycopene, beta-carotene, and fiber. And according to Cat Ebeling, a co-author of the best-sellers: The Fat Burning Kitchen, The top 101 Foods that Fight Aging, and The Diabetes Fix, that “While pumpkins are chock full of beta-carotene (the pre-cursor to vitamin A), and fiber, they are also low glycemic, meaning that pumpkin does not cause blood sugar levels to rise, helping you lose weight. Pumpkin is also great for your eyesight, beautiful smooth skin and has powerful disease-fighting capabilities.”

Pumpkin’s high fiber it will help you feel full longerBecause of pumpkin’s high fiber it will help you feel full longer, which is a great aid in weight loss. And as I mentioned the low glycemic properties help to keep your body in a fat-burning mode—not a fat-storing mode. Pumpkin’s powerful antioxidants also help fight off cancer and boost the immune system. A pumpkin-protein smoothie can be the perfect post-workout recovery food—since pumpkin is also full of potassium, along with its vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals.

One more thing to note – that beautiful bright orange color of pumpkins comes from the antioxidant, beta carotene, which not only turns to vitamin A in the body, but is a powerful antioxidant that has been known to protect against heart disease, cancer and diabetes. It is very versatile: we can bake it, stream it, or roast it like a sweet potato, and add it to soups!”

Don’t forget about the pumpkin seeds as they are amazing also……especially for the men in our life, but will write about that in another blog!

Here are three super recipes I wanted to share with you! They are easy as most of you know I am still refining my technique in the kitchen! I incorporate the Young Living products and Vitality oils in the kitchen as much as possible!

 


 

Amazing Pumpkin Smoothie

This recipe is an almost perfect low-glycemic snack even for a Diabetic, with its blend of fiber, healthy fats, antioxidants, and a reasonably low amount of sugars and carbs that impact blood sugar.

Amazing Pumpkin SmoothieIngredients:

½ cup (approximate) organic pumpkin, canned or fresh baked
1 small or 1/2 regular or large tart apple
2 scoops Young Living Pure Protein Complete Vanilla Spice
1-2 teaspoons pure vanilla
1-2 tsp cinnamon or 1 drop Young Living Vitality Cinnamon Bark essential oil
½ teaspoon nutmeg or 1 drop Young Living Nutmeg Vitality essential oil
1 tsp turmeric (optional)
Handful of greens if you wish—baby kale, spinach, chard, etc.
8- 10 oz. milk, coconut milk, almond milk, etc. depending on consistency
1 Tbsp of coconut oil

Directions:

Mix in blender until smooth, add milk until desired consistency. Add a few ice cubes if you like it cold.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And from Nancy Sanderson, Gary Young’s sister: Healthy Pancake Recipe!

Ingredients:

Young Living Cinnamon Bark Vitality Essential Oil1 cup organic oats
2 cups Gary’s True Grit Einkorn Pancake & Waffle Mix
or Gary’s True Grit Gluten Free Pancake & Waffle Mix
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 ripe banana (mashed)
2 scoops Young Living Pure Protein Complete Vanilla Spice
1 Tbsp Young Living Agave (I used a lot less- not too sweet for me)
2 eggs
¾ cup almond or coconut milk
½ tsp vanilla
1-2 drops Young Living Cinnamon Bark Vitality Essential Oil

I added ½ cup of organic pumpkin to the above recipe.  One could also add some actual pumpkin seeds as well!!

Get creative!

Directions:

Preheat griddle or waffle iron to medium heat.
Combine dry ingredients and set aside.
Combine milk, oil, vanilla and eggs.
Combine dry ingredients with milk mixture.
Pour batter onto griddle or into waffle iron.
Cook until medium brown (flipping pancakes when bubbles appear in batter).

[If you desire thinner pancakes, increase milk.]

Note: Nancy writes that if you prefer the oats to be finer, then put them in a blender before you start with other ingredients. She prefers the oats whole.

Gary's True Grit NingXia Berry SyrupDrizzle some of Gary’s True Grit NingXia Berry Syrup on your pancakes!

A special treat especially for the holidays!

This syrup combines wolfberries and citrus essential oils with blueberry, plum, sweet cherry, aronia, and pomegranate along with warming vanilla extract to make a wonderful low glycemic syrup.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From Pamela Higgins, a Certified Health Coach, and a “sensitive foodie” here is a great way to enhance corn muffins!

Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins – Makes 12 Muffins

Ingredients:

1 cup medium grind cornmeal
1 cup Gluten-free flour—I like the Gary’s True Grit Gluten Free Pancake & Waffle Mix or Gary’s Einkorn Flour
½ tsp pink Himalayan salt
3 tsp baking powder
1 whole egg
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup maple syrup
1 cup canned pumpkin
½ cup milk of your choice

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Line muffin pan with 12 liners or spray with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients.
In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients and then fold into the dry ingredients.

Scoop 1/3 cup batter into each muffin cup.
Bake for 15 minutes or until cooked through.

Hope this inspires you to bring more colorful orange foods into your life, as well as adding the Young Living Vitality oils to your meals. Get creative!

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving with abundant joy and health always

Bringing outdoors freshness to your home!

For a natural energy boost, why not make “going home” feel like going into the woods? As the seasons change, most of us will be spending more time indoors. In many cases, this means relying on a furnace and electric lights to substitute for natural sunlight. For a while we’ll miss our flower gardens, fresh mowed grass and summer breezes that carry nature’s aromas indoors.

As many know, our olfactory sense of smell has a powerful subliminal effect on our moods and our energy level which makes home diffusion of YL essential oils as the seasons change, especially empowering and timely.   And because these seed-to-seal oils are so pure and potent, integrating their mist in our home atmosphere enhances the molecular structure of our air quality, affecting every breath, our brain and our body chemistry.

For instance, YL Lemongrass essential oil, with its fresh grassy scent, also gives a boost to the circulatory system. Cedarwood essential oil can make our home feel more like a forest with added benefits to the respiratory system. YL Jasmine essential oil creates the aura of an enchanted garden, while naturally relieving emotional distress or fatigue. With these dual benefits of Essential Oil diffusion, you can choose exactly the oils that suit your need.

It’s so easy to start up your diffuser each day as fall and winter approach.     By doing so, you’ll notice how much better you’ll feel – in body-mind-spirit.

Experiment with different YL Oils in your diffuser for different purposes and observe the difference this can make in your home.

Diffusing in your home will make a difference:

  • For improved sleep quality, start up a bedside diffuser before you turn in for the night.
  • For a more energized start on the day, use a diffuser in your kitchen. Just turn it on while you’re preparing breakfast.
  • For more clarity of mind and productivity, incorporate a diffuser in your workplace.
  • For social events, make YL Oil diffusion part of your hospitality.
  • For a home spa, bring your diffuser to tub-side and add drops of mood elevating oils.
