NEW dōTERRA DIAMONDS MOMENTUM John & Patti Mason RICHLAND, WASHINGTON, USA Success Who You Are FROM “If my intentions are as pure as the oils, people will feel that and will be drawn to it.” P atti Mason suffered with fibromyalgia for 15 years. It brought her such extreme pain that she was barely able to sleep at all. That along with several other health problems made her open to listen when her friend Kathy Pace invited her to learn about dōTERRA essential oils. Patti says, “I didn’t have any idea that it was going to change my whole life. It took me a week to have the courage to try dōTERRA, because I had tried so many things and been disappointed. I didn’t want to be disappointed again.” She decided to start with the supplements and after four months was feeling an extreme difference. “It’s not about pressuring people. It’s about finding answers that will bless their lives.” 52 dōTERRA ESSENTIAL LEADERSHIP I JULY / AUGUST 2015 Though she saw their effectiveness in her life, Patti didn’t think anyone else would want the oils. Kathy came to help her teach a few classes, and Patti was shocked to see that people were interested. She says, “After that, I thought it would be really selfish if I didn’t share this, because there are people out there who are looking for answers. I decided I was going to start sharing and it went from there.” Keep momentum Look forward to it Set a schedule “When I taught fitness classes, if someone new came I always told them, ‘Congratulations, you’ve done the hardest exercise of all—walking through that door.’ Getting started is the hardest, and that’s why you have to keep your momentum going. Otherwise, you have to keep starting over.” “Once you have some momentum, you start looking forward to it. Once you start exercising and feeling the benefits, you want to keep going so you can feel good again. It’s the same with dōTERRA. When you share, it feels good, so you keep sharing.” “It’s important to have set classes every week. If no one shows up, use the time to watch webinars or make contacts. If I don’t have that time scheduled, then I don’t have a plan or momentum.” Now, Patti has been able to expand her desires and her reach. She says, “Before, all I wanted to do was not have so much pain. Then, all I wanted was to help other people not have pain. Now, I want to have an endless income so I can have endless abundance to help endless people. I want to be able to give and serve in any way that is needed, and I want that for everyone else too.” 20 percent from our skills. Patti says, “It’s good to develop skills, but if your heart is in the wrong place, it doesn’t matter how good your skills are— people will feel that.” As she’s watched her team grow and help others, it has eliminated opportunities for contention or negativity and built unity. “We’re not just building a dōTERRA business; we’re building a culture of oneness, love, and support. That’s powerful.” She had learned that success comes 80 percent from who we are and only Patti is so grateful that she has found relief and hope through dōTERRA. She says, “I have found a new belief in all the things I had deep in my heart that had been shut away because I was shut down physically. I just wanted to serve and bless lives, why did I have to have this pain? I’ve since learned that pain is a teacher. dōTERRA has given me the opportunity, the desire, and the hope to help others learn from their pain, so that they can let go and move on. I want to be an example of that for the people in my life.” “My husband is coming more onboard. He loves serving and helping. He’s a huge support behind the scenes and I’m very grateful.” www.doterra.com 53
