GARY: I’m going to ask one last important question: how many of you are here because you want to change your destiny? Oh my goodness, you just filled my heart. I am so happy, because we can do it together! Yes!
MARY: Gary, I want to know how many of our audience already feel like they’ve changed their destiny? Yes! Oh my goodness, that’s so wonderful.
GARY: How many of you are ready to go on to greatness? How many of you want to fill a stadium next year? It’s done. You speak it; it’s done.
Here are your key ingredients. The intensity of your dream, the passion of your heart, and the knowing of the spirit. These will create the perfect manifestations of your dream, your fulfillment of destiny.
This I will say in closing. There isn’t one human being in this building I don’t love, because you’re a child of God. I love you. We love you. I believe in you, and I know you can do it. You can achieve everything you want in life. All you have to do is grab it, sink your teeth into it, and go for it with a deep, burning desire. Build it with passion. God bless you.
GARY: I crashed my plane 5 years ago. The FAA inspector who came the next morning said it was the worst crash he’d inspected in 27 years that somebody walked away from. That was my second one; and then 3 years ago, a third one. But I didn’t stop. I went and got another plane. This was my third crash. Only I wasn’t flying this one.
You don’t stop because you have an accident. You don’t stop because you have a problem. You don’t stop because somebody says, “I’m not interested in your essential oils. They stink.”
There’s a risk in coming to convention; you might get addicted to Young Living!
There’s a risk in doing research. Now if you don’t know who the foreigner is in this photo, look at the ankles. This is in the Forbidden Zone in Yemen. I was the first foreigner to go into the Forbidden Zone in 30 years. How did I get there? I sat on the minister’s step and wouldn’t take no for an answer. I wanted to do the research. I wanted to go to the ancient city of Shabwah [Yemen]. I wanted to film it and I wanted to be the first to video record it—and I was, because I wouldn’t take no for an answer.
GARY: People say, “Fear keeps me from being successful.” No, it is not fear: false evidence appearing real. People have used the old fear word for their escape forever. It is not the fear of being successful that is keeping you from building your business; it’s the risk. Why are you afraid to take the risk? Are you afraid somebody will criticize you? Are you afraid you don’t know enough? You often take risks, even when you play a game.
I think most of you have seen me holding my hand and being a wuss the last few days. I tore my hand Tuesday morning jousting in practice, but I haven’t quit. I put a brace on, I ace wrapped and taped it, and I jousted again yesterday. Yes, it hurt, but it felt good when I knocked the other guy off the horse. It’s the only sport where you can hit another man with a big stick and get paid to do it.
Don’t let a little pain stop you when you want success. Block your mind to it and keep blocking it. I didn’t have to get in that arena Wednesday morning or yesterday afternoon, and I don’t have to do it today. I simply don’t have to do it.
Mary said to me, “Honey, I wish you wouldn’t.”
And I said, “I have to.”
She said, “No, you don’t have to,” and she was absolutely right. I didn’t have to, but I did have to. Here’s the reason why I chose to keep jousting. I did it to be an example to you. I won’t stop because it hurts a little bit.
I will always do and I will always stand in front. I work every day to be an example to you, and I’ll never ask you to do something I won’t do.
GARY: Ask yourself, “What stops me from building a business?” This is the most important question. What is stopping me from being a Royal Crown Diamond? Is it a fear of being successful?
I don’t know how to change my paradigm? Do I need to change my belief system or my behavior pattern? Do I need to change how I see myself?
Put your questions on a piece of paper and tape it on your mirror, so you can read it before you go to bed. Create the shift in your mind before you go to bed, so you can dwell on those questions before you go to sleep and perhaps dream about them while you’re sleeping.
People ask me, “Gary, how do you create all the equipment, how do you create all these designs and buildings and structures and all that you do?”
I have a very, very special friend who is my tutor and my boss. He’s my mentor. When I want to know something, I write it down, I talk about it, I think about it, and I keep it in my mind. Then I say, “Father, I need an answer: I need to know how to do this,” and then I go to bed.
It’s important to be committed in your communication with your Creator. He’s got millions of phone lines ringing all the time with people asking questions like, “Can you help my grandma achieve optimal health?” People are always asking questions and making requests.
How many of you have heard the old adage, “The squeaky wheel gets the grease?” When you’re talking to Father, talk with passion, with a deep burning, a desire to have your questions answered. He will listen and He will answer your question. Make Him your partner.
GARY: There is another reason no one can compete with Young Living, and that is because we have a Janay, a Matt, a Jared, a Mike, a Lyndi, a Brittani, a Kelly, a Mark, and many others. Nobody can compete with us!
Not only do we have something to believe in, but we also have something to be proud of as we build our business. We have something to share with the world, and the world needs us. That’s why good leadership is so important. Walk your talk. Be prudent and humble, and acknowledge who you are and your own accomplishments.
MARY: May I just say one little thing?
GARY: Please do.
MARY: Is there anybody here who does not have a copy of our new Seed to Seal book? You know what I’m talking about: D. Gary Young, The World Leader in Essential Oils.
GARY: Yes, there are a few hands.
MARY: This is the best book you can have in your possession because it is the full story. It is Gary’s legacy—the story of Young Living, the story of the farms—and it is absolutely 100 percent true. There are no made-up stories; there’s nothing in there to embellish it. It’s exactly as it is. It’s just unfortunate we couldn’t include more. So if you want to know what Young Living’s all about, how we started, who Gary is, you want this book. Many of the book’s 700 photos were never seen before. This book will be a great building tool and will make building your business simple and easy.
