I love to read! I read about things I never would have thought I would care about if you’d have asked me a couple of years ago! I read every day, I have read anything from The Hunger Games to 50 Shades of Grey to Emotional Healing with Essential Oils, Think and Grow Rich, How to win Friends and influence People, but most recently, I read this book, Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World. It is exactly what I have been missing in my life. Last night I was able to go to an event where Dave Braun and Troy Amdahl were speaking, now I am more excited for a life of Oola than before! They talk about how you need to balance the 7 F’s in your life to have a “balanced and growing” life.
Sorry for the bad quality, I’ll get a nicer camera one of these days!
The seven F’s that need to be balanced according to the Oola guys are:
It’s what we all need! You can look at it however you want to, change what you think you need to change, but at the end of the day, they have a plan that will work for everybody. How do you implement the 7 F’s of Oola? They have a great website that will help you on your path to Oola (oolalife.com) for me… I am not 100% sure! (But I am trying)
I am a very organized person, if I am not organized – I am stressed out! I am always updating my planner so I bought some new highlighters and I assigned each of the different F’s to different colors, I am trying to make sure I have every color highlighter in every week of my calendar! (this has its ups and downs, when looking at my summer, I realized just how short summer is here in the land of 10,000 lakes!) But I think it will help me to remember, all of these things are very important and they all relate!
If I am not taking care of FINANCE, I am stressed and don’t want to work out which makes me feel bad which gives me the “its just one day” excuse to eat anything, so much for FITNESS! Then I am not happy or in a good mood so I don’t have FUN with my FRIENDS and FAMILY and I am not motivated to take care of my FIELD and therefor can lose FAITH in what I am trying to do… it’s all relative! (dramatic, yes, but you get my point!)
Together with Gary Young, the Oola guys have come up with two essential oil blends to help you stay growing and balanced on a daily basis! “Balance” and “Grow” are the oil. There are TONS of therapeutic benefits and of course, they smell AMAZING! I will do another post later on the details of each of the oils!
My question for you is, ARE YOU DOING THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY? ARE YOU LIVING UP TO YOUR FULLEST POTENTIAL? If you have these questions like I do, maybe you should check this out!
Just so we all know, I was not asked to write this nor am I getting paid… I just think this book is beneficial and it is NOT just another self-help book! This is just my opinion, but I highly recommend it. I think these principles will help me grow as a person and help grow my business.
