A Room Full of Winners!
At the Amway meetings I attended everyone was constantly reaffirmed (brainwashed) they were a “winner”. A winner simply by showing up! I was sitting in a roomful of winners! Wow!
Based on Amway definitions I guess it turns out I was always under the false impression that a winner was a person who actually wins something. Based on my definition I bet I was probably the biggest winner in the room. My first prize? A cake in a cakewalk! I’ve won countless small prizes in raffles and radio and TV contests like books, concert tickets, and Starbuck’s gift cards. I’ve won cash, maybe totalling$1000 several times on radio contests over the years years. I’ve even won a couple of trips from company Christmas parties where they purchased or got an airline to donate prizes.
How come I never win the lotteries for those million dollar houses???!!!!
I’d say I have a better track record than the rest of the room when it comes to being a winner. I’ve made more money on contests than I ever did in Amway! With no money invested. Just a little time. Not even 10 to 15 hours a week!
Everyone else in the room is a “winner” just because they showed up to the 8pm warrior meeting wearing a business suit.
Oh I get it! The winner is the person who catches the most prospects! The prize is the adoring affection of the Platinum.
No that can’t be right. The winners in this room rarely brought prospects. No adoring affection for any of them. Instead everyone was on the receiving end of the Platinum’s scorn.
The real winners? Those of us who said: “Fuck you. I’m outta here.”
Whatever happened to that roomful of “winners”? Are they winning or are they losing?
Some of those winners are still hanging in there losing their money and losing their downline. The rest of the winners hopped on the fuck you bandwagon.
