Why Being Coachable Will Help You Succeed

If you’re not coach-able, all bets are off.

Because if you’re not coach-able, you think you know everything already, and you don’t.

So as soon as you say “I know that already”, you’ve lost. You’ve turned your mind off to accept information.

You probably know that 2+2=4.

But as soon as you’ve said those ugly words previously mentioned, you’re mind has shut down.

You’ve told it that whatever comes next, you already know.

What comes next might be 3+3=6 or it might be…

You already new this, right?

But you already knew that so you don’t have to pay attention.

Don’t worry this NEVER gets any where close to being as complicated as that!

Ever watched a movie more than once?

Ever noticed something new the second time you watched it? Or the third…..

What if you said, “Oh, I’ve already seen that movie. I don’t need to watch it again.”

If you’d have started watching that movie with the aforementioned thought in mind, your attention wouldn’t have been on the movie and you probably would have missed things that you saw the first time!

Being coach-able is always keeping an open mind.

You never know when something new is going to come along.

And it may be hidden just enough that without your full attention, you’ll miss it.

Utter that killing phrase, even just thinking it, even unconsciously, will hold you back.

It is very important that you empty your cup and let those in the know teach you and show you how to succeed.

Put the ego away and be humble. It’s the most destructive thing you can hold onto.

I used to think I was coach-able. Oh, boy did I have a chip on my shoulder (or beard). I was coach-able as long as you told me what I already new or agreed with.

But try and tell me something that I disagreed with or went against the grain, I wouldn’t listen…and I wouldn’t learn.

I was not only not coachable, I was cynical and defensive.

“You can’t teach me anything about that. I already know it.”

What a twit.

The word humble to me meant weak and there was no way I was going to be a weakling.

But then that’s the rub.

I was weak but not a weakling.

I was weak in driving skills when I first started driving.

I was an airplane pilot so I knew how to fly but I was weak when it came to flying helicopters.

Happily I am now strong in both of those areas. But until I realized that weak skills require you to be humble, I wasn’t learning all I could.

And again, happily the negative connotation that I held in the word “humble” has disappeared and I am amazed at myself in how much I have learned and grown in the past few months.

So, are you coachable?

‘Cause if you’re not, you might want to re-think where you’re at.

North Dakota Government Officials: Young Living Essential Oils Adds $43 Million to Local Economy

What’s the one sure-fire sign a company is as hot as they say they are? Money.

Young Living Essential Oils is a money factory lately, proving that the demand for organic essential oils is as hot as ever.

As far as money is concerned, they’re making it, spending it, and offering it up to state and local budgets in the form of sales tax, corporate tax, and payroll. The Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development announced last month that Young Living Essential Oils will expand its presence in Utah and North Dakota, where the company started up more than two decades ago.

Everyone Loves More Jobs

Young Living’s expansion will add 445 jobs in Utah over the next seven years*. In terms of wages over the entire span that means

YL will add $174,461,476 in wages to the local economy

Tax revenues are also in the millions of dollars. That’s not all…the new global headquarters represent another $82 million in capital investment for the area.

Young Living is pouring money in the local economies and Utah residents love it. They also love that this economic growth doesn’t come at the expense of the environment!

Everyone Loves Success

Young Living Essential Oils has enjoyed a continuous “upramp” of success, especially in the past several years. Their products are sold via network marketing, and legions of distributors have had not only success but also great fun spreading the word about all the uses of high quality therapeutic grade essential oils.

What is it that makes the company so successful?

Everyone Loves New Products

One reason Young Living has had such success both locally and internationally is their constant research and development efforts. Their Home cleaning products have done especially well in the global market as awareness of indoor pollutants grows.

Products are safe, non-toxic and sustainable, too. Cleaning surfactants are compliant with Green Seal and EPA standards, and of course support everyone’s own “clean air” initiatives as well.

Everyone Loves 100% Pure

Young Living essential oils are 100% pure and certified Therapeutic Grade quality. In fact, Young Living’s D. Gary Young literally wrote the book on therapeutic grade quality essential oils.

His standard is now the industry-wide benchmark for quality, guaranteeing that any product with his Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ stamp on it will contain 100% pure, natural oils that are uncut and will maintain their potency.

Everyone Loves “Made in the U.S.A.”

Young Living operates the largest distillery of essential oils in North America. Only by maintaining a plant right in the company’s back yard, can they ensure the quality standards required in order to be sold under the Young Living label.

Their Seed to Seal® program also ensures quality by keeping a tight reign on the product from the point at which it starts out as a seed, to the moment the seal is placed on the packaging before it ships out.

With so many things to love about the company, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to learn that they’re planning such aggressive expansion over the next seven years. The State of Utah is certainly happy that the world is discovering essential oils through a great company like Young Living.
