Leadership Skills

Adopt and Stay Committed to Healthy Habits

We need to understand that our most valuable job as a leader in Young Living is to be a healthy lifestyle coach to others, regardless of where they live. However, we cannot do that unless we are COMMITTED to adopting healthy habits ourselves and staying committed to them for the rest of our life, like brushing our teeth daily.

 

How many of you currently go to a doctor on a regular basis and this doctor is in worse shape than you are? He’s overweight, is on several medications for this and that, and rarely talks to you about lifestyle changes? My parents’ cardiologist told them he didn’t have time to eat healthily and exercise and he just makes sure he takes his cholesterol medication. How crazy is that? I thought to myself, “why are you going him then?” But they kept going because the insurance covered his visits and they thought he was actually helping them.

 

Think about it… Why would we take advice from a doctor who is not healthy himself, but prefers to just take medications to cover up the symptoms, instead of making any lifestyle changes? That’s absurd, in my opinion. Our body isn’t craving Prozac if we are depressed, for example. The symptoms we are experiencing are simply signs that our body is out of balance and we need to be making some drastic lifestyle changes.

 

This is why we need to be so focused on a healthy lifestyle in this career. As a Royal Crown Diamond, we need to show people that lifestyle changes are what keep us healthy, fit and energetic. We need to lead by example. A fit, healthy and energetic Royal Crown Diamond is a vivid example that healthy habits are extremely important, wouldn’t you agree?

 

If we are currently struggling with weight issues and not perfect in our healthy habits it’s okay! The point is that we need to be constantly striving to be fitter, healthier and more energetic, not simply accept that our age will cause various problems. The doctor that is covered by my insurance point out told me two days ago that EVERYONE will get cancer and Alzheimer’s at one point in their life; it’s not a matter and “If” they will, but of “when”, which is why, he explained, we all need regular check-ups. WHAT??? That is absurd! It was pointless to argue with him, though. We need to simply take our health into our own hands and ask God for guidance on our journey towards renewed wellness so we can live above the wellness line, which is the purpose of all of Young Living’s products - to enhance our healthy lifestyle so we can stay above the wellness line no matter what age we may be. We are all getting older, but we don’t all need to get a disease like cancer or dementia! These things ARE preventable and reversible with lifestyle changes. 

 

So, are you with me on the fact that something incredibly important that we need to learn before reaching Royal Crown Diamond is adopting healthy habits and staying committed to them? I hope so. It’s so important that we lead by example. It’s so important that we come healthy lifestyle coaches that lead and coach others by modeling a healthy lifestyle themselves.
