Leadership to me means inspiration. I inspire people to better their lives. I am a leader. I like the roll I have taken on. I love being able to inspire people to live more natural/holistic lifestyles. The thing about being a leader though, it isn’t all fun and games. You have to show up. You have to spend countless hours working. People don’t see the behind the scenes stuff that leaders do.
In my leadership role I have a lot of fun with my oily team. But I also do a lot of work to help inspire my team. I do a lot of work to teach my team. But trust me when I say it is all worth it. The relationships I have are amazing. These are relationships I know wouldn’t be here if we hadn’t have connected through oils. Truly these are relationships that have built me into the person I am today. The most important thing to me though is that I show up for these women. You can’t be a part time friend and think you’re there for someone. If you want to inspire your leaders you need to be there 100% of the time. You need to be accountable. People need to know they can count on you! Yeah life happens and my family 100% of the time comes first. It may take me a few hours or even a day to respond to a question someone has but I’ll be there. I can guarantee I will be there. I’ll e honest though I’m totally one of those people who sucks at texting. I really do. I’ll read the text and reply in my head. 🙄 And then forget to send a text back. Definitely something I’m working on guys!!
Through the 3 years I have been doing this whole leadership thing I’ve learned A LOT. I have grown a ton. This is the life I was made for and I know it. I have had leaders give up who I had looked up to. I never want to give up. I will never give up because like I said before this is the lifestyle I want. I literally live to help others. I thrive on this whole community that I have helped build.
One of my favorite things about this leadership role is helping build my leaders up and locking arms with them. I do this by learning their communication color. This is a quiz I have my team members do. In college I majored in communication studies so it’s something that comes easy to me. I love it. When you know someone’s communication colors you can help play on their strengths and help lead or guide them in their weaknesses. Having someone know your strengths and weaknesses that wants to see you succeed is vital. If I know one of my leaders stresses about teaching a class I can help encourage them and I can help them plan it. I can literally help ease their stress. This helps them succeed and grow into the leader I know they can be.
People who are watching me from the outside and who aren’t in my inner circle might think this is all a scheme or a joke or unrealistic and eventually it won’t amount to anything. But they’re wrong. I hope that one day they can experience the abundance with me because it’s legit. It’s real and it’s awesome. It literally fuels my fire and fills my cup. Leadership is what god made me for. I am here to lift others up and empower them. Don’t just watch me, come with me to the top.
