When I was growing up, money was scarce. My parents were very savvy shoppers and one of their favorite stores was Sears. They had a very simple slogan. Good, better, best. And you really couldn’t go wrong. For example, if you needed a new refrigerator, you had three choices. They all worked, it was just a matter of choosing which you could afford in order to get to optimal.
Over the years, I’ve found this slogan to be true with a variety of things I’ve tried in order to help my special needs son.
When he was about 3 or 4 years old we learned about a wonderful place called The Institutes For The Achievement of Human Potential (IAHP). As soon as I discovered it, we enrolled in their program and our journey began. However, after 6 months our son was not doing any better, in fact he was worse. Loving the message, but not the results, I learned their was a group that had, what I call, broke out of IAHP and it was called the National Academy for Child Development(NACD). We enrolled our son and began their program and we had a better response for our son.
A few years later, through more researching, I learned of a remarkable boy named Raun, who recovered from Autism and his parents started a program called Son-Rise. I, of course, enrolled our son, and so it began…..
Again, our progress just was not happening. Not one to give up, I learned of a small group that broke off from SR, called Growing Minds(GM) and we trekked down to Florida and enrolled our son! He began, again, to make some progress.
When we learned the powers of essential oils(EO), I had to have them. I was first introduced by a Chiropractor in Colorado. As you can tell by now, I had to learn more about EO and when I did, I found one needed high quality. Unfortunately, the results others were enjoying, just wasn’t happening for us, and I gave up on the oils.
Fast forward to 3 years ago when we met my sons current doctor and she asked me to consider trying EO again. I was pretty resistant. The years of research and trials with slow progress hardens a persons enthusiasm to try new (same) things and my new attitude was ” been there, done that.” She encouraged (ok insisted) I just try these new Essential Oils and my love affair began. The quality is extraordinary and the more I use them, the more I love them! They are wonderful for my son, but they have been extraordinary for me, too!
My son just turned 22. I’ve learned not to ever give up. There is always something more. A new way. A better way. Someone has a good idea and it works, it’s good enough. But, out of ego or denial or greed or pure stubbornness, they cannot see potential for change. Someone within their organization has vision for perhaps something better and starts something new and perhaps it’s the best. Good, Better, Best. Are you living with good or better?
If you are already using Essential Oils, I applaud your due diligence! However, if you’re not seeing the results you crave, perhaps you’re only at good or better. Step on over and join me in Best. Click here to sign up.
