“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 blog
on this blustery windy day at our condo in Southern California. God can do FAR MORE than any skeptic and non-believer can possibly imagine! If we look through the Old Testament, we can get a 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
built my character. Truly the verse in James 1 rings true: “Consider 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. He gives and He takes away…. 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 about the Reach 10 Movement!
We all live incredibly
busy lives, and some even more than others. 60 to 100 hours of work daily, away from their families is not a good balance of time for 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”... It is designed to SIMPLIFY THE WAY YOU BUILD YOUR BUSINESS.
The idea is simple, but
powerful. When used in conjunction with the Young Living compensation plan it can change thousands upon thousands of lives.
Let's talk first about how it came about. I had been listening to Royal Crown Diamond (top leader in Young Living) Lindsay Moreno and she had talked about focusing on a 6 by 7 square of people.....
Reaching 6 people that would be leaders and then focusing on helping them develop 6 leaders that duplicated their actions, instead of focusing on getting more people to personally sponsor themselves. Then focus on helping those 6 people develop 6 leaders and
so on for 7 rows down.
I had also had read Richard Bliss' book "The Four Year Career" where he talked about reaching 4 people that wanted to duplicate our
actions (4 leaders) during our career and then help them reach and develop 4 people to duplicate their actions, and so on.
The night after I listened to Lindsay, I felt that God wanted
me to go BEYOND the 4 and the 6. He recalled when He had put in my heart to create a group on Facebook called the "Reach 10" group. He had given me the same exact "math revelation" as He had given Lindsay,
but I had let that revelation die. I did start the group but nobody seemed interested, and I just let it die. Now that idea was coming back to life. I was able to understand better how this idea would work and how I would be able to explain it with more confidence
to others. Lindsay vividly had expalined to us why to choose 6 based on how Young Living's commission plan works by showing us the numbers. Richard Bliss explained how it would work with 4 (take time to read his book if you want to understand how it works), but I feel that God wants us to go BEYOND that
and see what He can do through us for not just 4 or 6, but 10 leaders. The "perfect 10", as Monk would say.... **Anyone watch that T.V show? One of my family's absolute favorites.
So, that is the background to this movement. Before I go on, tell me...
Are you game? Or are you skeptical it could ever work?
If you are skeptical…. you are not alone! The majority reading this blog 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
than me gave you this blog post to read (or sent you a link to it), then this person is a VISIONARY and you can sign up with him or her as your mentor. Not me!
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. We’re not all called to lead others.
So how do you know?
This action 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 a 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.
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, 10 “legs” (10 people we directly sponsor) and then we focus our attention on
helping these 10 enroll and develop 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, instill confidence in them, 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 develop leaders
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!
