Confident Leadership

What is the Reach 10 Movement?

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, what God has reserved for those who love Him.”

“Now to Him to can do ABUNDANTLY MORE than we could ever ask or imagine, to Him be the glory now and forever.”

Those are two verses that come to my mind as I write this post on this humid and hot day in our condo in Southern California. Seriously, God can do FAR MORE than any skeptic and non-believer can possibly imagine! If we look through the Old Testament, we can get clear revelation of what God did for His people. We just have to read Exodus and Joshua….. the parting of the Red Sea, the provision in the desert, the conquering of the land God had promised them….. and dig into the book of Isaiah to remember what God had done in the past and what He promises in the future to the remnant. We are reminded that it’s NOT because of how great we have always been, but because of HIS grace, faithfulness and great love for us. If we repent and seek after Him with all our heart, acknowledging Him in all of our ways, we will not only find Him, but He will pull us so close to Him and teach us so many amazing things that it will blow our minds.

 

That is what literally has happened to me over the past 10 years! God has had me on a journey that has been quite a rollercoaster emotionally, but it also has been one that has deepened my faith and trust in Him and one that has build my character. Truly the verse in James 1 rings true: “Consider it it all joy when facing trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance, perseverance produces character, and character produces hope. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything”.

 

Don’t worry about the timeline that God has for your life! Simply aim to draw closer to Him daily in the midst of your busyness. This is the best thing you can do in order to live peacefully and joyfully, no matter what circumstances you are facing or will face in the future. Don’t allow yourself to get into victim-mode; instead, focus your eyes on God. Don’t focus on what you can see, focus on Him who is unseen for He loves you and promises you an abundant life. Just like God did forJoseph, who suffered in many ways, He will cause you to prosper in all that you do if you just focus on Him and not on your challenging circumstances, which are only there to build your character.

 

Don’t allow the enemy to destroy the life God has planned for you, my friend! He only comes to steal, kill and destroy, but Jesus came into this world to bring us a life in which we thrive, not merely survive from day to day (John 10:10). Focus on how powerful God is, not on how big your problems and challenges are. Whatever is causing or will cause you to stumble in your faith, whatever is taking priority over Him in your life, He will take away, so praise His name when things that appear bad happen because that is just the enemy trying to destroy our peace and joy and our faith in God. Keep your eyes on Him! Trust Him for His ways are higher than our ways and His plans for us are greater than even the best plans we have drawn out for ourselves.

 

Now…. let’s talk specifically about the Reach 10 Movement!

We all live incredibly busy lives, and some even more than others. When COVID-19 was not around, people were working over 40 hours, and sometimes even two jobs! Let’s be honest ..... 60 to 100 hours of work daily, away from your family is not a good balance of time. It is destroying families and lives, as our health decays physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. That is why God gave me the plan of the “Reach 10 Movement”.

 

The idea is simple, but powerful. When used in conjunction with the Young Living compensation plan it can changes thousands upon thousands of lives.

 

Are you game? Or are you skeptical it could ever work?

 

If you are skeptical…. you are not alone! The majority reading this post WILL be skeptical and will stop reading. They will think it is a “get-rich” scam and they will throw it into the trash. Will that be you, or will you become a "Reach 10” Visionary?

 

If you are one of the few that is like…. “Game on!!!” …… then keep on reading to know what it is I will ask you to do. **By the way, if someone other that me gave you this post to read, then this person is a VISIONARY and you can sign up with him or her as your mentor. Not me!

 

So here’s the plan:

Step 1: Sign up with Young Living with one of their Premium Starter Kits. (PSK)

Step 2: Enroll in the Essential Rewards Program (you can do so when you get the PSK)

Step 3: Commit to living a healthy lifestyle and use Young Living products to enhance it.

Step 4: Focus on getting 10 leaders throughout your career in Young Living. **What??? Yes! You will FOCUS on being an excellent sponsor of only 10 leaders. However, that said, you will also not withhold the opportunity from anyone! Along your journey, as you fall in love with the products, you will show people in whatever way you desire and fits your unique style and personality (it does not have to be classes or parties!) that Young Living offers products that can change their life. If they want to get a membership, help them enroll. HOWEVER, only a select few will want to duplicate your actions! That is okay. You will focus on training 10 leaders and then handing the rest over to others on your team to help them get to Royal Crown Diamond. That is what this movement is all about…. You concentrate on finding 10 leaders that will duplicate your actions and you focus on training them and caring for them.

 

I bet you are wondering… How will I know if they want to be a leader? I get it! Most sign up and say “There is no way I would ever want to share this with others and build a business out of this. Count me out!” I was one them, and so were the majority of top leaders in the company! The majority DO NOT ever touch the subject of business; they just want to focus on their own little world, and we must respect that. Others will say they will stay committed, but end up quitting when the going gets too tough and they are not reaching their business goals as quickly as they desired or hoped.

 

We’re not all called to lead others.

 

So how do you know whether someone will be with you the long haul and be one of your 10 exemplary leaders? 

This will simplify it for you: Get a little index card box and have 2 sections in it. One section will be “Wholesale or Retail Members”, the other will be “Visionaries”. If the person does not say that they are a visionary and/or business builder, put them in the first section. If they decide down the line that they do want to share and want to become part of the “Reach 10 movement”, then switch them into that section. If a person that said he wanted to be a visionary decides it’s just too hard, realize that you do not have to convince them to stay…. Simply encourage them to stay, and if they decide that they just want to get the products and that’s it, change them into the first section. They may come back to be a visionary, but they may not, and it’s okay; others may change teams down the line, and we have to learn to forgive and be okay with that too.

 

Now that you have created that box, make sure you help the visionaries by helping them enroll others under their sponsorship. If you have 10 wholesale members on your team already, then put the next person that wants to enroll under one of them. The compensation plan pays us a percentage of the sales for up to 7 generations, so it pays (literally) to build deep!

 

Hold on… What is a “generation”? Well, let’s say you enroll Sally. She would be in what is called the “1st Generation”. If Sally enrolls Bob, he will be considered to be in your “2nd generation”. If Bob enrolls Charlie, then Charlie will be in your “3rd generation”. Let’s say Charlie enrolls Diane, well then she will be in your “4th generation”. You get the point.

 

So…. Back to the Reach 10 plan. Our goal is to focus only on a 10 by 7 rectangle - that is, we focus on getting 10 “legs” (10 people we directly sponsor) and then we shift our focus, our main attention,  on helping these 10 enroll 10 of their own, no matter how long it may take. It doesn’t matter!

 

We each have our own journey to walk, so some may quickly get their 10, and others may take 5 years, or 10 years, or maybe more. It’s not for us to decide how quickly they go… We just need to love on them, encourage them on their journey and be there for them in whatever way they let us into their lives. Once they start enrolling people. we must focus on helping them share the “Reach 10” plan to them (the 4 steps, plus the index card box plan to help them stay organized.) We make sure we are helping people up to 7 generations down…. Hence why I said we need to focus on the 10 by 7 rectangle.

 

Only one question remains….Are you a Reach 10 Visionary? If so, share this plan with others!

👉🏼 ❤️ Here’s my link if you want to enroll in Young Living with me as your leader as you commit to the Reach 10 Movement: GetOiling.com/MessengersOfHope **I have created a free brochure to make it easier for each person to share offline not just about Young Living but about our team, so if you want me to send it to you, send me a private message here on Facebook. Let’s impact lives together!

The last trait mentioned in the scout law is reverence. It states "A scout is reverent". This means that he is reverent towards God, faithful to his religious duties, and respectful towards people that have other beliefs.

 

An exemplary leader must also be reverent towards God, as well as respectful towards what others believe. Personally, I have come to realize that acknowledging God's control over the business is a much better way of doing things. A lot more peaceful! He is much wiser than I am and so His way of doing things is the most excellent way, therefore I must be reverent towards Him and follow His plan, without quitting along the way. It's also important to allow others to believe the way they do, respecting them and loving them all the same. Afterall, it's not what we do that matters in the end, it's about what God can do through us, whether we acknowledge that fact or decide to take all the credit ourselves. Acknowledging that there is a being that is higher and wiser than us "mere mortals" and being reverent towards Him is something that is very important, I do believe.

 

So, as an exemplary leader, learn to be reverent towards God, and also be respectful, loving, and caring towards those who do not have the same beliefs as you do. 

 

Cleanliness is the next trait we will talk about. "A Scout is clean" it states in the scout law. This means that he strives his body and mind clean, and also strives to keep his home and community clean by doing his part. 

 

An exemplary leader must also strive for cleanliness. If we have teenagers. we will know that it's hard work to get them to keep their rooms clean, let alone clean up the rest of the house. However, this is a skill that is important for them to learn and maintain. It's a life skill. It's important that they take showers and put on deodorant and and keep their hair nice. It's also important that they keep their personal space clean - that includes their rooms and their bathrooms.

 

If we want our teenagers to be clean, we must set an example, though! Make the time to not only keep your body and mind clean, but strive to keep your home clean. It's easier to work if our place is clean. Don't strive for perfection, though! We don't have to waste time trying to keep the house perfectly clean at all times. However, do have a day or two in the week when you focus an hour or two to simply clean your home, and every day clean off the mess on the counters, desks, stovetop, etc and wash the dishes. It's not that hard and you will feel better working in a clean environment.

 

We must lead by example, so strive to be clean and keep your home and community clean. Just do your part, but never waste your time trying to be perfect. Not necessary, and less stressful to live this way!~ 

Day 10 of our series! Whew! I hope you've seen so far how very much the scout's path to Eagle resembles the the path taken by an exemplary leader in the network marketing profession. These are all traits we must embrace in our own life. Today's theme: BRAVERY. "A Scout is Brave", it states in the Boy Scout Law.

 

Being brave means we courageously set out to do something even though we are very afraid of doing it, and we don't back down until it is completed. The true excitement isn't in the 'ordinary' path, though we certainly are welcome to choose that one. Think about a time when you courageously did something fun - like maybe rode a huge roller coaster or went extreme (or even regular) ziplining, like my famiy and I just did this summer in Mazatlan. How did you feel when you did it? Or did you back down at the last minute? Going all the way is where we really can feel that the world did not come to an end when we were courageous enough to do it. In fact, we felt the thrill that we would not have felt if at the last moment we backed out of it. 

 

Being brave also means to stand up for what we believe in even though the world around us may laugh at us and call us crazy, and maybe even mock us when they see us. Being brave means continuing the journey to the top rank in the company with which we chose to partner, regardless of well-meaning people that do not support our efforts because they think we making a terrible mistake with our life. Being brave means we continue our journey even though the haters come out and continually say mean things about us , online or offline, and every chance they get, they insert something directed towards us that make us cringe and take a deep breath before we can keep going. 

 

Learn to be brave, my friend! The excitement comes when you do not back down from what you said you were going to do, which is to reach the top rank. Be brave and show the world around you how what they say does not matter as much as what you know is the right path for you to take. God is with you every step of the way, so persevere on the path of blessing; many brave leaders have reached the top before us and the life they now experience is breathtaking. It's a life attainable by us too, but we need to BE BRAVE and persevere on the journey, regardless of how long it may take. 

 

Moving on to Day 9 of our series, we find that "a scout is THRIFTY". How does that apply to us as exemplary leaders in the network marketing industry? 

 

Let's take a look of the definition of "THRIFTY". According to an online dictionary, it is defined as a person who uses money and other resources carefully and not wastefully. That is precisely what we need to do! We must strive to use money, time and other resources in a way that is not wasteful. Time and money management, as well as taking care of the resources on earth, is of vital importance. How can you improve in this area?

 

Be a person who is thrifty at all times. Learn to use your money, time, and all other resources in a way that benefits us, others, and the world we live in. Strive not to be wasteful; and if you currently are in any area, take a step back and correct that.
