I want you to write this down: how many times have I created my own self-sabotage? I want you to ask yourself while you’re writing it down, did I sabotage myself unconsciously, consciously, subconsciously, or willingly? The answer will likely be “yes” to all of those.
Then after you’ve written that down, just close your eyes for a minute and think about the last time you can remember when you literally failed at something you were doing; look at what contributed to that failure.
A lot of people blame the crashing economy for their failure, true or false? Young Living is one of the fastest and strongest growing companies in the world through this whole economic downturn. Why? Belief. But it’s more than that. The economy doesn’t dictate your success. But if you believe it does, then that’s where it’s going to take you.
You have to change into a space of “knowing” in order to change your paradigm; it’s as simple as that. And you cannot move into a space of knowing until you know who you are and what your strength, or power, is. How can you know what that is if you don’t write it down and look at it? All of us have created things in our lives, but do you have something to look back on to evaluate what you’ve accomplished?
If I were at the distillery, I could pull out my distillery logs for the last 20 years. Because I have written records, I can go back and see where a mistake was made, so we don’t repeat that same mistake again. This is just a simple example of where writing down what we’ve done helps us to succeed.
