WORLD PEACE CARAVAN

THE UNSHAKABLE DREAM THREE SEPARATE TIMES, D. Gary Young dreamed of leading a caravan of camels through the desert. The camels, ridden by people of all faiths, came from every direction and merged into one united stream. After the third dream, so vivid it was almost jarring, Gary decided to tell his wife, Mary, and two of his closest friends about it. Their responses were identical: “You must do this.” Gary recognised the trail that the caravan had travelled in his dreams as being part of the ancient Frankincense Trail, since he had often explored the storied trail while researching frankincense in Arabia and had written about it in his historical novel, The One Gift. Three thousand years ago, the Queen of Sheba journeyed 1,400 miles with 750 camels on that very trail to bring peace offerings to King Solomon in Jerusalem. Inspired by his dreams, Gary decided to create a modern-day journey for peace. Countless hours of preparation are now making Gary’s dream a reality. The World Peace Caravan will depart Petra, Jordan, on December 15, 2015, and will travel to Jerusalem on a 12-day camel caravan for peace. Gary is inviting people everywhere to join in this amazing journey.

“THE YOUNG BOY said to his grandfather, ‘I have two wolves barking inside of me. The first wolf is filled with anger, hatred, bitterness, and mostly revenge. The second wolf inside of me is filled with love, kindness, compassion, and mostly forgiveness. Which wolf do you think will win?’ “The grandfather responded, ‘Whichever one you feed.’” —Dr. Wayne Dyer I love this metaphor! The grandfather really has life figured out: we are what we feed our minds and bodies. I don’t need to give you a lesson on which wolf we should feed; it’s obvious. However, there are two other wolves within us that so many of us fight with every day: the wolf of fear and the wolf of courage. The Greek philosopher Epictetus said: “First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.” It is critically important to know what we want to be, but it is just as important to actually see ourselves becoming what we want to be and then do what we have to do to realise our desires. Too many of us live our lives in paralysing fear, unwilling to move because we put so much weight on the opinions of others. Have you ever tried to pay your bills with somebody else’s opinion? It doesn’t work. Then why do we give up on our dreams because of what someone says or thinks? We constantly need to be feeding the wolf of courage. Be true to your grand visions of yourself. The best way I know how to do this is by taking action. Move. Talk. Be uncomfortable. Nothing extinguishes the fire of a dream like comfort. Make 2015 the year you see yourself as what you can be and then work to become that beautiful, amazing you.

AGAINST THE RECENT odds of snow, ice, frigid temperatures that average -4°F (-20°C), with some extremes dipping to -40°F (-40°C), and the immense task of finding and trucking in equipment, Gary forged ahead with the new distillery at the Northern Lights farm. As a testament to Gary’s dedication and passion, the new boiler will soon be fired up to distil, bringing the favorite blend of Valor® back into production with an unlimited supply of Black Spruce oil.

CANADA

EARLY IN 2014 Young Living Canada celebrated its one-year anniversary with a big event in Toronto—more than 2,000 miles and two time zones away from the corporate office in Calgary. We had close to 1,000 attendees come to celebrate the great successes of the market over the past year. Since our official opening in 2013, YL Canada has grown extremely fast, as Canadians have caught fire with the enthusiasm of Young Living. The market has more than doubled in size from our first year! The leadership in the market is a huge part of this growth, as our dedicated member leaders diligently support their organizations. In 2015 we look forward to a bright year with exciting events and promotions to support our members. We look forward to having a number of large, Super Saturday-style events featuring fantastic speakers and newly formatted training events. These will take place in major cities across Canada, giving members greater access to Young Living culture and improved product training. The Introduction to Young Living tour will also continue throughout Canada.

Vast growth to spur 445 jobs in Utah over seven years. YL receives $9 million tax-incentive award from governor.

IN EARLY DECEMBER Young Living, in tandem with the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development, revealed plans to increase its Utah presence and create 445 jobs over seven years. “The success experienced by Young Living Essential Oils is a testament to the friendly business environment the state offers to homegrown businesses,” said Governor Gary R. Herbert. “More than two decades ago, the business started because of a demand for essential oils. Now it is growing not just regionally or nationally but also internationally.” In addition to the 445 new jobs that Young Living will be creating over the next seven years in Utah, Young Living accepted an award from the state for nearly $9 million in tax incentives to build a new campus and make Utah the company’s long-term home. “Young Living has deep roots in Utah,” said Travis Ogden, Young Living’s chief operating officer. “As the birthplace and headquarters of Young Living, Utah has always been our company’s home; and we are excited to continue growing here and creating hundreds of new jobs.” “I attribute much of our growth to our firm commitment to the quality of our products,” continued Ogden. “Young Living’s unwavering Seed to Seal® purity standard is what people around the world have come to expect from us.”
