I heard these and I furiously wrote them down because they really hit home!

I was at an essential oils leadership training event when I heard these powerful coaching tips …

  • Be aware of your words and make sure they pull your team together not tear them apart.
  • Your team owes you nothing, you owe them everything.
  • Awaken possibility in others (you know you’re succeeding when their eyes are shining).

If their eyes aren’t shining, ask yourself…

  • Who am I being that my players’ eyes are not shining?
    (If you’re a parent … Who am I being that my children’s eyes are not shining?)

Coaching is not about wins or power but about how many eyes are shining around you.

Yesterday, I shared a video about being positive in the present and the happiness advantage.

Effectively dealing with, processing, and managing your emotions and how you feel is SO critical in sports and in life.

I’m beyond excited about helping players, coaches, and families use this aromatherapy set, specifically designed to help with this exact aspect of being your best.

Personally, I’m a total self help and personal development junkie. I LOVE constantly learning and growing and stretching outside my comfort zone. But that can get, well, uncomfortable!

Physical training is tough, no doubt about it. But doing HEART work? Taking a good hard look at yourself, evaluating, and making changes? That’s a whole ‘nother level of strength and courage. It challenges you in all kinds of ways.

I’m SO happy to have extra tools and support to help make that process smoother and more doable day in and day out. I use essential oils throughout the day, not just for physical health benefits, but for emotional, mental, and overall wellness too. Essential oils aren’t just for making the air smell good :)

Just as I’m a big fan of training that increases overall athleticism and more effectively using your emigre body as a whole for maximum performance, I’m a big fan of essential oils that address YOU as a whole, mind, body, and soul.

Because working harder isn’t going to help if your mental game is holding you back or emotional issues are impacting your performance. Take care of ALL of you.

This aromatherapy set makes it even simpler!

Do you know a perfectionist? The one who is crazy hard on themselves for messing up? The Forgive blend can help ease that and help them move forward.

What about someone who is going through some change? New team? New position? New school? Change is always challenging, even good change. Some Peace blend can help settle some of those emotions.

Long season taking its toll? Or maybe just a long weekend (or day for that matter!). Try some Motivate to help finish strong :)

So many uses for so many common challenges athletes, and people, face. I love it! Passion and Forgive are my current favorites. You find that your favorites will change as your needs change, ensuring that you always know exactly what you need, when you need it.

The oils included in these aromatherapy blends? SO beautiful. We’re talking about some of the most precious oils available: Frankincense, Hawaiian Sandalwood, Yuzu, Rose, Jasmine, etc. Some of nature’s absolute finest to help you be yours :)

TED Talks. You’ve probably heard of them. I’ve watched a few before. They were pretty good.

I watched one this week. I absolutely loved it.

They say girls need to feel good to play good, but boys need to play good to feel good. I’ve always had trouble buying into that. Because I believe what this Shawn Achor is saying in this TED Talk:

Be positive in the present.

He speaks about the “Happiness Advantage” and how to develop it.

Do you have it? Does your team have it?

I’ve always been considered a positive minded person, but, after watching this video, I know I have room for improvement.

If you want to increase productivity and achieve higher levels of success, on and off the field, watch this video.

I’m already doing the little “exercises” suggested at the end of the video. You can too. It’s simple. And it’s free. When we’re talking about doing better AND feeling happier, it’s pretty much a no brainer, don’t you think?

Click here to watch the video, then come back and tell me what part of this video jumped out at you the most :)
