Gold Wellness Advocate
In 2017, Paula and her partner were on a journey of naturally sourced support for their family during a difficult time. This was when she was first introduced to the world of doTERRA.
“I had no idea really what essential oils were or what they were capable of. I realised quickly, that the oils were multi-faceted and it was clear they were working quickly. The oils helped us emotionally, they have indescribably changed our lives”.
“As a family we have learnt how many ways they can powerfully support us and how simple it is - we just need to unlearn a lot of our reliance on others to guide what OUR body needs. Remembering how to listen to our bodies and what it is trying to tell us - that was huge for me, I had lost touch with what my body was trying to tell me most of the time”.
In reaching the rank of Gold, Paula’s key focus was consistency in action, above all else. “Service is everything - listening to your customers, understanding their needs and serving those needs are crucial. Focus on relationships and serving others, coupled with action and the rest will flow. Consistency is so important - make sure you are doing the REAL work, not getting bogged down with the stuff that just feels like work. Get out in front of people, connect with them and share the oils they need, support them to the best of your ability to get those results you know they can get. Rinse and repeat”.
“doTERRA will be the making of you, if you are brave enough to welcome and grow from the personal development that is required. Know that the tough stuff you encounter will be where you are taught the greatest lessons and will be key to your growth and progress. When you know this - it doesn't scare you, you just know it's a crucial step to your growth as a person and as a leader. Be brave! You will be amazed at the magnitude of what you can achieve and the lessons you will learn about yourselves and others which will flow positively to every other area of your life”.
Paula stays motivated by tapping into the version of herself 2 years ago and feeling the desperation and hope she had for what these oils could give her, yet she had no idea as to the extent that the oils would alter her circumstances and trajectory of her life and that of her family.
“Every day, I remind myself that maybe today I will meet someone who needs these oils desperately like I did, and who will have their life changed like I did. They need me to be brave, to share what I know. Every day, I look for this person and it is the best motivator there is. The amount of times I have heard the words 'these oils have changed my life' has been incredible and for that reason, I know that I have found my purpose”.
