Even When it’s Messy, There’s Hope
We live in a world that is both gloriously wonderful and excruciatingly hard. Much of both the good and bad are out of our control. Yet, we’re not completely at the mercy of the world around us. Yes, we’re aging (dang!). And our overburdened health care system is in crisis. Added to that, many of us haven’t adequately prepared for retirement.
Sure, things can seem pretty dismal indeed. But there is reason for much hope. And we would like to offer you some here.
First, let’s look at the health care system. Every year in the USA, American’s spend 4.5 trillion dollars on their healthcare. 4.5 trillion is hard to wrap your head around, right? Here are some examples of that kind of money, but to give you a bit of a comparison, in the last 40 years, NASA has only spent $600 billion on their budget. Total.
4.5 trillion is a lot of money. Not matter how you look at it.
Are we better off? Generally, no. It’s no secret that we’re the most overweight, overburdened, tired, toxic, medicated, frustrated, stressed and depressed we’ve ever been. Not only that, we feel helpless about it.
But, there is hope.
What if we learned how to take care of ourselves again? There was a time when doctors weren’t the first place we went for advice. Don’t get us wrong, we are NOT against doctors or the medical world. There is a much needed place for them in society. But they are only a piece of the puzzle.
At one point in our history, home remedies were the only option. As medical advances progressed, there came a point when it seemed more logical to opt for the synthetic drugs and quicker, cheaper solutions to our health problems. As that shift became more complete, we handed our health over to others to manage. And, honestly, there were some big gains. Some terrible diseases were completely wiped out, people began to live longer and it seemed like a win/win for everyone.
However, we’re now dealing with out of control health care costs, super bugs, prescription addictions and more. But it doesn’t have to be that way. What if we learned to listen to and work with your bodies and become our own healers? What if doctors became our second option instead of our only one? What if we gave up toxic habits and learned how to live healthier? What if we changed our mindset, our lifestyle, and our practices in an effort to give ourselves better health and a better life?
It’s possible. People all over the world are learning about natural solutions and having great success with them in managing their health on a day-to-day level. These are simple, effective, non-toxic remedies that help them to take care of themselves. They’re taking control of their health and learning how to be either own healers (it’s not just for the hippie dippie people anymore. It’s gone main stream).
As we look to retirement, it’s not the same world our parents lived in. Most of us in our generation didn’t hold the same job their entire working life-like our parent’s norm. Most of us also don’t have a nice retirement package that will allow us to live stress free in our golden years. As a matter of fact, the median savings of those near retirement (ages 56-61) is only $17,000, with 1 in 3 Americans having zero retirement savings at all.
Often compounding financial stress is the fact 8 out of 10 Americans are in debt and feel even more strapped to their jobs and financial situations than ever before.
But, there are solutions!
What if you could make a residual income leading up to, or even in, your retirement? On your own terms? What if you could save that nest egg NOW? What if you could make enough money part-time, on your own terms, to live abundantly now and into your retirement? What if you could do that simply by giving others solutions that they need and are desperately searching for? Sound too good to be true?
We let us introduce you to our wonderful company, doTERRA, where you can use therapeutic grade essential oils (and at wholesale and below prices) and take control of your health and give you practical, simple, low-cost solutions at your fingertips. With our current health care situation, we believe there isn’t a single person in the world (true story) that couldn’t benefit from these essential oils.
If you’re looking for financial solutions, doTERRA has those too…no matter how you choose to get involved…from very part-time to full throttle. DoTERRA is really a one-size-fits-all company because you can tailor it to what works for you and your needs, goals and financial picture.
We are not doctors or investors and don’t pretend to have all the answers. We can’t treat, diagnose, prescribe or otherwise advise anyone on any of their health issues or investments, nor would we want to.
But, we can tell you our stories—what we’re doing, what others are doing, and what’s changing lives. We can extend hope, help and support. We can offer baby steps in taking toxins out of everyday lives and in growing in financial freedom while reducing debt.
How could you benefit from greater health, the ability to be your own healer and a part-to-full-time income to get you set up for retirement (or help you cruise through retirement much more smoothly)?
