Scent Warriors Vision Statement 2012

Dream – Believe - Achieve

How high will you soar?

  • The sky literally is the limit.

  • You’re limited only by what you dream to achieve.

  • You’re only limited by what you believe you can achieve.

  • This year we are going to help remove the fog that is limiting your vision. It starts with a dream – dream big!

  • No point in dreaming if you don’t believe.

  • It’s through your hard work, dedication, your commitment, and your belief that you will achieve these dreams.

  • Create a dream board: Put those dreams on paper, visualize, make it real, look at it daily! Make sure they are your dreams.

  • We can encourage and inspire but you have to metamorphosis to the point of making these dreams a reality.

The Butterfly

And Your Scentsy Business

The Monarch Butterflyand Its Amazing Journey

Each fall, Monarch butterflies in Maine begin an unbelievable journey to a hilltop in Mexico.

How do they do it?

  • Focus on the goal, not the difficulties

  • Allow their instincts and desire to steer them

  • Accept what comes

  • No matter what, they keep flying

  • The Wind: A Help & Sometimes a Hindrance

  • They fly together. By working together, by flying together, they help keep each other on course. They don’t tire, they don’t quit. They face their obstacles together, they keep each other going and no matter what…they keep flying. They keep flying until, one day, they arrive.

  • Their determination makes the difference.

    Where will you migrate with your Scentsy business this year?

The Cocoon

  • When the butterfly breaks out of it’s cocoon, it is a very long and difficult process.

The Butterfly EARNS its Colors!!

  • The struggle to break free is how the butterfly gains the strength to spread it’s wings and fly.

    • Determination

    • Give it Your All Everyday – DO NOT QUIT

Leadership Helping You Out of Your Cocoon

    • But Too Much Help, Does Not Help


      This is what will drive you to keep breaking

      out of the cocoon…

      This is what will motivate and encourage you.

      This is what will keep you excited to spread your wings and fly!

Man and a Butterfly
