Teamwork Makes The Dream work In All Areas of Life, Sports and Business

Teamwork Makes The Dream work In All Areas of Life, especially Sports and Business –

The first lesson in sales that all of us learn is everyone is tuned in to WIIFM;

What’s In it For Me?

wiifm

Our Challenge is finding the people who can see What’s In it for WE …

We live in a society that promotes ‘the individual’ and individuality is the root of Ego. It’s about Me, Me, Me – it’s the “no I in Team, but I in Win” mentality.

But this is Fantasy!

The reality; what wins Championships – in all areas of life, especially sports and business – is Tenacious D!! Team Defense!

It’s One Unit Mentality that achieves success.

It’s teamwork.

This is what I love about the network marketing industry; because the blueprint to success has already been laid out by so many people who have built teams and accomplished incredible financial fortunes along the way. In this industry you are either Building the team or you are building your team ‘within a team’. I think it’s easy to forget that most people who come into this industry and even several of the people who sign up, come from ‘a matrix for their minds’. Most people come from a society that promotes the individual; meanwhile what we ignore is the reality.

No man is an Island.

There is no such thing as the ‘self made man or woman’.

These are myths that people tell themselves; often to feed their ego…. because the ego NEEDS to be fed.

But; the reality – the truth that shall set you free is this; Teamwork makes the dream work. What dream do you have? What team do you have?

Back in January I put together a video where I talked about the importance of “having the right people” on your team. In this video I discuss the reality of star players like Kobe Bryant and Lebron James, who need team mates to help them win. As great and as dynamic as these players are, none of them, not even the great Michael Jordan himself, were able to win without getting help from others. However, “the others” didn’t all have to be superstars.

Yes, Kobe had Shaq, and later needed Pau.

Yes, Lebron needed Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh.

Yes, Michael Jordan needed Scottie Pippin.

But the other ‘role players’ were just as important as the superstar role players. Because in all of these situations, someone is playing a role. Even between the superstars, there is a leader and a follower. That’s what makes a successful business parntership; that is what makes a successful sports teamwork partnership – because Two Leaders Cannot Lead Each Other. This is what broke up the Kobe/Shaq Lakers. This is what would’ve doomed the Lebron, Dwanye Wade Heat – but Dwayne doesn’t have the same kind of alpha male personality as a Lebron James; or even a Kobe Bryant.

This speaks volumes to the importance of chemistry.

Sometimes its just not in the cards for two people to work together within the same space – or the same team.

You see with Kobe and Shaq, you had two alpha males and honestly, I feel Kobe was willing to follow Shaq, however Kobe constantly challenged that leadership in ways that annoyed Shaq’s Ego. So for example, Kobe would take the ball to the rack or shoot a jumper rather than run the offense and allow the ball to go into Shaquille. However what you could tell is, Kobe just wanted to get a win, for the team. Perhaps people did not understand this within the moments that it unfolded, but now that we look back over his career and see times when Kobe could’ve left the Lakers; you see a person who really and truly wanted (and seemingly still wants) to bring championships to the Franchise.

With Shaquille – we see a man who was mostly about himself.

He cared more about ‘being the man’, than about ‘being a champion’ – He wanted to give orders; and demand the ball but, refused to work on his free throws so that IF/when teams fouled him after getting the ball, it wouldn’t turn into a wasted possession. The casual fan in the stands is not thinking of this because the casual fan is also, poisoned with the message of ‘be an individual’.

So they bark of his dominance while ignoring how much MORE dominant he would’ve been as a 70% freethrow shooter, instead of what he was over the course of his career.

That’s all Phil Jackson tried to do with Shaq; get him to be more than he was settling for.

I think that’s all Kobe was trying to do as well.

But, Kobe was doing it for the team. He was set on blossoming and being more.

He wanted to grow and expand his game.

He wanted to lead a team to victory and eventually He got that opportunity.

When we look at a Dwayne Wade; he’s a great player, but has never been to a championship without another dominant alpha male type personality.

This is a major aspect of what it means, for teamwork to make the dream work.

Often we are like pieces to a puzzle; often we are incomplete. Often those of us in business can look to sports to see all the answers to what is going on in our own organizations. We can see that we may need more, or less alpha males. We can see that we need more or less role players. We see the lack of chemistry or begin to notice how chemistry is playing a major role in the production – because that is the reality.

Teamwork makes the dream work in business;  just like in sports.

When Lebron first came to Miami, out of respect for Dwayne Wade he didn’t wanna just take over right away. But, the two of them had a conversation after that first trip to the finals. Wade pretty much gave the reigns to Lebron; told him to do what he does best. That conversation took them to the finals 3 more years in a row; winning 2 of them.

Road to Success

When I first saw this image of ‘what most people think success looks like vs what successful people know the road to success IS like” – I thought of everything I just shared with you. This is that road to success and all those “Fail” spots are the times when we went off on our own; and tried to accomplish big things alone.  We start to get closer to the end of that road, once we finally connect with the right people.

Along the way, together, there will still be a few more ‘spots’ where we find out that not ALL of the people on the team; were meant to stay on the team forever; You’ll lose a few key role players perhaps; and you’ll stall out while you look to replace them – but so long as the core keeps moving together toward the goal; You will reach that goal.

The desire alone, is not enough.

The circumstances absolutely must come together.

A team must be built – OR you must attach yourself to a team that is being built, and play a position – a position which COULD be worth millions to you, simply by doing your part.

You may not be the star of the team – but everyone on the team gets a Ring.

Everyone on the Team gets to call themselves, A Champion!

Teamwork makes the dream work – in all areas of life – whatever you are seeking to achieve; as soon as you have the right people – who all want the same things; That Goal WILL be accomplished.

The Kevin Durant MVP Speech Was Truly Inspirational

“Basketball is a platform to inspire others” – Kevin Durant said this while accepting his MVP today, a well deserved award for an excellent NBA Season.  The NBA has been in the news a lot lately. Amid the controversy created by Donald Sterling’s Racist comments, the NBA has overshadowed quite a few big news stories over the past couple of weeks.

Kevin-Durant

Showing us that Basketball can be a platform for, many, many things – Including, but not limited to, Inspiring others. What will the players, and the people involved with this association inspire in others?

I think that’s the most valuable question, that begs to be asked. Sharing with you now, the Full Kevin Durant MVP Speech – which was originally posted via Oklahoma’s local News Website, News9.com.

The Inspirational Kevin Durant MVP Speech 2013-2014 Season

What an awesome 2013-2014 Season by Kevin Durant.

What an awesome MVP Speech! Probably one of the best I’ve ever heard.

He truly was the Most Valuable Player not only for his team, but in the League. Even Lebron James had to admit he deserved it, when the report was leaked that K.D. would win the award.

The Kevin Durant MVP Speech will most likely go down as one of the most inspirational speeches we’ve heard. It was especially relevant to what we talk about here at TopnetworkersGroup, concerning Sports and Business.

The Speech was full of raw emotion as he thanked each and every single one of the players on his team. He spoke of how each one of them motivated him to Have an MVP Season. This speaks directly to our ongoing theme in business, about the important of teamwork; and how each person on the team plays a very important role.

Kevin thanked each player, not only for this season – but for what they have done for him throughout his career in the NBA. Certainly a well deserved award, for a well deserved player, who just had an incredible MVP worthy season.

A season where he lead the NBA in Scoring for the 4th time, a feat only a short list of NBA Greats have accomplished. They are Michael Jordan, Allen Iverson, George Gervin, and the great, Wilt Chamberlain.

Kevin Durant also went on a binge of scoring 25+ points in a string of 41  Games; which surpassed Michael Jordan’s 86-87 season, where he did it in 40 Consecutive Games. He led his team to yet another great season where they finished 2nd in the West, which has been ultra competitive during the 2013-1014 season.

Durant truly had an Incredible, MVP Season.

But he didn’t do it, by himself.

Which brings me back to the Kevin Durant MVP Speech, and how it really ties into what we do as network marketers. We are each playing on teams, and often we play for company owners who may or may not care about us as much as we think. Again, the comments from the Los Angeles Clippers owner, though ugly, reveal a reality in our society. Business cannot escape the ills of Society.

Literally anyone can prosper in the world of business. Business, like Sports, is a platform. It can be used by anyone, to do harm to others – or to inspire others and transform our communities. Business more than ever, needs the good people to get involved, and work to be the best they can be. Business, is not perfect – it’s a part of our imperfect society.

However you and I have the unique opportunity to transform Society while we transform ourselves. While we play a direct role in the transfer of wealth, from those who have it all, and are not using it for the benefit of the many – to you and I. What will We do with wealth? Will we have MVP Seasons and use our talents to bless others? Will we work together and encourage one another, and lift each other up as we STRIVE to win the championships in life?

Go ahead, draw the comparison. In the MVP Speech we’ve just heard from Kevin Durant, we hear all the ingredients of a winner. Someone who tries to set the example for his young guys; realizing they are looking up to him and that if he takes a day off, so will they. He realizes the impact he is able to have on them. He’s thankful for the mentors, the vets, the ones who’ve been there and don it all.

The Humility in a leader who realizes he is at the top, not because of his own efforts; but because of his team. In network marketing, no top money earner becomes one, without the efforts of a team. A team of top money earners is the most beautiful thing you will see. So many lives are touched and changed when people have success in this industry. SO many beautiful and wonderful people are freed from the chains of employment-slavery – by the blessings of residual income, and leverage – provided in our industry.

Just like Kevin Durant each of us must work hard, to IMPROVE, and not just rest on our laurels. We must never be complacent or feel like last year was good enough; We must challenge ourselves, and even our team mates to get better.

This SPORTS mentality, this WINNER mentality is what it takes to WIN, in Business, in Sports, and in every area of our lives. We must be willing to WORK at ourselves; to be “better men” – and better women too. As we become better PEOPLE; we’ll become better at our Profession; Kevin Durant, congratulations to you sir; and yes you’ve totally Inspired me; I hope your words inspire many others as well.

Thank you for using the platform of basketball, to teach us all about teamwork. Thank you for appreciating your support system, and reminding us, no one reaches the top alone.

We may not all have been blessed enough to be professionals in the NBA – but each of us reading this, has the opportunity to be a professional in MLM – and we can use this platform, to inspire others.

Like KD.

So, So Tired of Scams – Getting Around The Hype

I don’t know about you, but I am so, So tired of scams.

I’m tired of watching people fall for scams. I’m tired of people promoting scams. I’m tired of people in my downline quitting a good opportunity for a scam. I’m tired of scams.

That’s one of the driving factors that motivated me to launch topnetworkersgroup. I was so tired of scams in 2010 that I felt the industry needed guidance. I felt like if a handful of us would come together we could help people avoid scams, and make real money. But so many of the people I attempted to start this movement with, fell for a scam.

I’m sick and tired of scams.

scam2

They are unavoidable. I just wish there was a way to keep people from falling for these and yet, even I had to fall for a few myself to know what a scam looks like. Are you tired of scams? That seemed to be the Theme behind the video for the Hyper VSP; a system which supposedly gets you more traffic.

See my problem? My Scam alert went off right away. NOTHING is going to get traffic for you but you. I don’t wanna lead you on or disappoint you. I do not want to lie to you or sell you a dream. Getting WebTraffic takes hard work. If you want to get more web traffic, you’re very intelligent. If you want to get more web traffic with an automated autopilot system – You’re lacking the intelligence you will need to achieve success.

While going over a few ‘websites’ I came across The Hyper VSP video; I loved the first 2 minutes of it and THEN suddenty I had a huge Problem. I made a video which Explains the problem I have. I highly recommend you Take a look at it as soon as possible. It is everything WRONG with our industry today. TOO Many people are taken advantage of simply because they do not know what is good, and what is hype.

Avoid the hype – whenever you see it.

There is no magic button. There is no shortcut to success.

The road to success leads through the dumpster. It’s a tough road but if you stay on the path, no matter what you come across while traveling, you WILL REACH Your destination.

Facebook Timeline Training: Religion and Politics

First a little ‘pre-amble’ before I get into Whether or not it’s ok to post Religion and Politics on your Facebook Timeline, for those of us using facebook for business.

I haven’t posted here on the “It’s all of it blog” in a few weeks – but since the last time I was here quite a bit has been happening. Especially in response to a video I made – along with the follow up video, concerning the Kannaway “opportunity”.  I decided to take an upfront stance because of all the people I saw lose money on scams like Zeek Rewards, and the latest scam, Rippln.

However, due to the nature of their marketing and the sheer number of people who’ve been fooled into thinking they are making a good decision, by others who know they are simply fooling others – there are a lot of ’emotional people’ who are really giving me a tongue lashing – which to me has been quite comical and entertaining, as I’ve been tending to several other projects which have kept me from ‘blogging’ – the nutshell …

People are so poorly trained nowadays it’s a real shame.

People are falling for anything – including false teachings on what people should and should not post on their facebook timeline. Starting with Religion and Politics. There are tons of social media guru’s out there – especially on Youtube. Many of them are quick to tell poeple how to use their social media outlets; and who am I kidding, I’m one of them too.

Hell, I even have an entire 20 minute Training called “Social Networking For Money” – which has helped lots of people use their social media ‘more effectively’ for business. Still, several of the people who I’ve personally sponsored have listened to what Other Guru’s say – and decided those guru’s know more than Me.

SO they follow the opinions of other guru’s, when it comes to what they’ll share – and this reminds me of a young woman I sat down with close to 3 years ago now. She was somewhat new to the industry, and struggling. I could tell she was looking for someone to follow. She is no longer in the industry today, which should tell you where this story is going.

We met and had coffee, and she talked about some GURU she was listening to, who said we should never talk about sports, religion and politics on our facebook timelines. She gave a good reason too – these issues are too controversial.

Sadly, I could tell from the look in her eyes that she really and truly believed this Guru; and she was waiting for me to CRUSH The guy and tell her she needed to STOP Listening to that BAD and horrible advice IMMEDIATELY!

But, I didn’t wanna crush her mentor.

Instead, I hoped she would recognize and realize on her own, that she needed to be FOLLOWING me and my advice, not some guru she met at a seminar and took a selfie with; We need mentors who can be ‘there’ for us; and I mean I was right down the road. Perhaps she saw my car at the time, and decided I wasn’t ultra rich – so there’s no way I could know what I’m talking about right??

This is the thing – If I was born into a wealthy family and already had some decent money laying around; I could make videos and ‘pretend’ like the money came from my Home business. Only problem is, the money didn’t come from my home business. So the advice I”m giving out, isn’t always really what works; but I know I can sell the information, YOU will buy it from me – because you see me in an Expensive Car.

SO back to the young woman; she’s no longer in the industry. She didn’t last long really – she was simply following and listening to, the wrong people.

Ladies and gents, stop listening to the wrong people – stop listening to people based ‘solely’ on what they have; and always, always do your OWN due diligence – read, and discover the information for yourself. IF those guru’s have read books you have not read; go read those books yourself. Go study your profession from the ones who’ve taught it for as long as it’s been around. Seek out the #1 money earners in companies; who are ‘documented’ and proven to have Large organizations – Listen to what they say.

NO one builds a Large Organization in Network Marketing by accident.

So back to Religion and Politics – should you post them on your facebook timeline?

If you’re using Facebook for Business, here’s something to keep in mind – which too many people forget. Your facebook profile, is your personal space to talk about what you feel like talking about. That is very important to remember – The Name of The game is Relating.

Your Facebook timeline, is not the business meeting – it’s not the webinar – it’s not the national convention – it’s not a PBR; your timeline, is your timeline.

Religion and Politics don’t really have a place in the Meeting, the Webinar, the Convention, or the PBR – by the time a person gets here, the focus is almost always entirely on the business. But ever since I joined this industry, there has always been a conversation about a Creator – a force that guides it all; and helps make all things possible; especially for those of us who believe. Faith is a very important factor in this industry – without faith, and without understanding the concept of faith – many of the success concepts will escape you. So Religion, whether we all agree on the name of the creator or not, is Omnipresent in this industry.

You’re not going to escape it; Top money earners will SHOUT thank you LORD (or Allah, or Buddah) WHEN They get their moment to talk about their success story; because the vast majority of successful people, are faith-oriented in some way, shape or form –

When we talk about Politics – those of us who are actually IN this industry should realize one thing. The political arena is a game; and we are the contestants; These decisions they are making in small rooms are impacting all of our lives – and it’s less important which party is the majority – because just about all of them are playing for the same team.

It’s really THEM against US – and it’s our job as network marketers to make that message clear to the world of enslaved, employee mindset men and women who liter our society.

They’ve been turned into pollutants, instead of into the powerful human beings they were born to be; they’ve been literally mentally enslaved – just like in the movie, “the Matrix” – You and I need to help people escape; give them the opportunity – at least.

(Watch the Free Your Mind Presentation from TNG ‘based on the Matrix Trilogy)

Religion and Politics absolutely have a place on your timeline – because you are relating to others; you’re growing and building relationships with others; and often we connect with people who think ‘like’ we do.  A person’s political views absolutely do say a lot about them. It can reveal their personality type, and really let you know who ‘fits’ with what your mission.  If there is a community you’re seeking to help, then you’ll want to partner with people who also care, about that community. Otherwise, there will be a constant tug of war, because you do not have the same shared views.

If a person chooses to share their views, others will choose to partner up; or even avoid partnership altogether (based on those views) – and ultimately that’s perfectly alright. This is how people can find ‘the right people’ to be in business partnership with. It’s a ‘sorting process’, where you often will discard several people until you find the ones you’ve been seeking!

A person who has faith, cannot effectively work with another person who has no faith. (Listen to Mr. Byron Nelson talk about The Relating Conversation)

A person who wants to make money to GIVE back to the community; cannot really work effectively with someone who just wants to make as much money as they CAN; so they can keep it all to themselves; and spend it on whatever they see fit. Those are two opposing views that will ultimately drive those people apart.

and so if you’re using Social Media for business, and you’re doing it ‘the right way’ – you WANT to discuss religion and politics – especially “IF” it’s of interest to you.

If it’s not something you’re interested in, versed in, or knowledgeable about – DO NOT talk about it on your timeline; The number of subjects you can discuss on your timeline are endless; it’s up to YOU to be creative enough, and willing to talk about – what you see fit.

This is important – Talk about sports; you’ll connect and relate to other sports fans. Talk about entertainment; Someone else who likes what you like will reach out to you. Talk about youtube, twitter, pinterest; talk about food; talk about places; talk about what YOU wanna talk about; and then …. look around Facebook to see who else is talking about what YOU are interested in; and chime in; talk about ‘that topic’ – eventually … you will build relationships with people who relate to you.

THEN Together, you can discuss business.

Going into business with people who THINK like you think; is always going to be more profitable for both of you; than going into business with someone who doesn’t.

Thanks for Reading; HOPE this helps you build a prosperous business with facebook.

2017 Update – November 6th; a lot has happened since I penned this training article on Religion & Politics, and how it relates to Using your Facebook Timeline.  A lot is an understatement really, as ‘politics’ truly took an ugly and nasty turn on Social Media in the last 3 years.  It became so ugly, so divisive that many people began Unfriending people over politics.  In fact, the ‘politics’ seemed to be more than just politics as usual… Something much more familiar was in the air.  After 8 years of having a Black President, it was clearer than ever, that Racist whites in our nation wanted to go ‘back’.

For me, that was like vindication.

I’ve covered topics like Racism in Business for years now; willing to go it alone, and forsake business relationships with others in the network marketing industry who shy away from controversy. Some people would rather make money than make a difference, and that’s ok.  TopnetworkersGroup.com has always been on ‘mission’ to make things better, especially Network Marketing. We can only do that, by calling OUR team members to be ‘better people’.

Simply put, Racist people have no place in our network, because our “mission” isn’t just about going through the numbers.  We actually do seek to train and develop people, into better network marketers, because that will translate into a better network marketing industry.  We can’t do that, working with people who are operating out of ‘old’ outdated, corporate American based ideas.  There is more, but in case you found this ‘old’ training article – you can keep up to date with us below:

 

The Famous Al King Facebook Rants on Business Partnership

The Famous Al King Facebook Rants – something I get inboxes about – because from time to time I WILL get one off; on my social media wall 🙂 — Tonight, I let one rip on the topic of “Business Partnership” – and shared quite a bit of my own ‘personal story’ – as well as some of what I’ve dealt with over the past few years, while making our Idea – and our Concept something that others can Easily Duplicate — I saw a Clip from an internview featuring Lebron James – We’ve discussed how closely Sports and Business relate – well one of the BIGGEST lessons I can ever teach you, is contained in my latest, famous facebook rant —

But First – CHECK Out the CLIP! – Lebron James All Star Interview – NBA TV

Lebron James and Dwyane Wade

See…… Here COMES that RANT ……

I’m watching NBA TV right — and you know I LOVE my Basketball; you KNOW I love my SPORTS — You know my MESSAGE — ‪#‎itsabouttheteamnotthecompany‬ — and I’m watching a ‘preview’ of an Interview with LeBron James — coming up on NBA TV this weekend — and in the short Clip, He’s talking about “That MOMENT” — when Him and D-wade Figured it out.

SEE ………… THIS IS WHAT I’m SAYING THOUGH!!!! (is what I think after he says it…. and I knew it was coming) — Steve Smith asked LeBron about it; He said “How did you two work it out, with TWO Leaders” …?

when was that moment that The Heat finally got it going; He said … they were 8-9 — and Him and D-Wade looked at one another and were like “Did we make the right choice??”

—- Lebron said…. D-Wade came to him and said “In order for us to win, YOU have to be that guy — I’ll take a step back, and you have to shine” (paraphrased) — and THIS IS What I KEEP TRYING TO SAY!!!! (I say to myself) — THIS Is what I’ve been telling my “leaders” for the past year.

For those who do not know; the ‘short version’ of a very LONG story is; I’m a Veteran of this here MLM Industry; Struggled in my first company for 5 long years; came up with a TON of experience; but not much ‘money’ — but I’ve been doing “internet network marketing: since 1999 (and that’s why I get so annoyed with so many people ‘in the game today’ because they don’t know who they are talking to when they talk) — Started a Web Design Company — in 2004; started Building sites with lead Capture Pages; Started Studying the teachings of Stephen Pierce and Mat Bacak in 2005 — and was making decent money from various projects I put together — when I got that ‘itch’ …. and came back to MLM in 2009.

I linked up with some Well Trained Leaders – cats I worked with initially in MLM – me and one of those leaders put 1,000 people into a company in 4 months; 400 of them were through my leg; over the next few months our team grew; Mine to around 700; his total team to almost 2,000 — and then our company went out of business; lots of stuff happened; everyone went their seperate ways; due to conflicts in philosophy over HOW to grow a team that makes money in multiple places —- not just one; Started TopNetworkersGroup in 2010 — and have been “perfecting this Idea/Concept” ever since — meanwhile, most of the people I’ve worked with, are Not Well Trained “leaders” —

No offense; it’s just what it is – and yet, I’ve been trying, VERY Hard to Teach many of them leadership; Over the past couple years; Most of my “main Leaders” decided they knew more about it than I did; Most of them decided to do thingstheir own way – and not my way; and so that’s fine; Just means I needed to continue to build “ME” and continue to look for others who can Follow My Lead — because a “Business Partnership consists of ONE leader and ONE follower” — You cannot have TWO LEADERS in a business partnership.”

THIS is a REALIZATION that came to me, after WORKING with several hard headed leaders from 2009 to 2011 — and then from working with several leaders throughout 2012 — When we launched the ONE MLM System, we still had a “leadership issue” — where I signed up several LEADERS — who wanted to LEAD me; and wanted to TEACH me; and Hey, I’d be more than willing to take a back seat; it’s just that these “leaders” are not anywhere near as experienced; nor were they as Committed to the long term Vision; and that’s where it dawned on me —

I mostly look for Leaders; but unless a leader is willing to take a back seat (at least for a minute) — and actually LISTEN to what I’m talking about — it’s just not possible for them to co-exist (and vice versa) — and to me, that’s not a Partnership; A partnership – is what everyone in business NEEDS to be successful in business; but that is one of the most difficult things to find; especially in MLM – because everyone thinks they are a FREE Agent; They’d rather be an Allen Iverson and score a bunch of Points but win NO Championships — than be a Lebron James and take their Talents to a TEAM that already has something in Place….

While I heard people bash Cedric Harris for his decision to join OrganoGold; I respected his reason; of teaming up to LEARN From and be MENTORED by the #1 earner in the entire industry — to ‘take a backseat’ and learn from someone even better.

BUT how DIFFICULT is that to do for “leaders” ??

It’s VERY Difficult — because Leaders have THE BIGGEST EGOS!!!

This is is why I could ‘never’ take a backseat to someone who isn’t more skilled than I am; and frankly – When D-Wade thought about it; yea it was his team; BUT — LeBron was BETTER – STRONGER – YOUNGER – FASTER — and VERY much his equal or better; That’s why they put together the kinda run they put together. THIS IS also why the Lakers could NOT win the 8 Championships Shaq/Kobe should have Won.

Shaq couldn’t take a Backseat.

As Kobe’s talent grew; as he Emerged more and more as a Star and Leader – that was the moment for Shaq to share the Throne; Shaq was stubborn; and when he got TRADED – he woke up and did the right thing, supporting D-wade’s Leadership; to get the Heat their first Championship.

DID I hit anyone YET?

SOME OF YALL are LEADERS but your SKILL is NOT at that LEVEL and you’d make MORE MONEY if you’d take a ‘backseat’ —–

(I told yall this was one of those……….. so you were warned)

This is really touching a nerve for me; Sometimes I have to ask God if I made the right decision when I do things that I “know’ may not come off as P.C. and may not make others happy; Like a ‘new leader’ who found my system on YouTube; called me up because he had the ‘same idea’ — but like Soooo many other ‘leaders’ – he wanted to suggest programs …

It’s about the TEAM not the company —

He wanted to fly me out to Detroit to look at Epic (new company —)

It’s about the TEAM not the company I tell him ….

He says “Al, I know that, I just want you to look at this and tell me what you think” —– “I think you need to FINISH filling out your 1mlmsystem profile before you PITCH me on anything” — Al I’m not pitching, just want you to look!!!

“Look at what? All MLM’s do the SAME THING?? The company does not Matter!” — I tell this dude; finally he goes; checks it out; it’s $900; he realizes the people there are Paid to promote it; and are CHaSING a Lifestyle they had; before theire last MLM went out of business on them (and they lost all their money ) — and I’m like SEE —– it’s about the TEAM … not the company….

So the NEW guy gets home; calls me up and says “Al you were right; I wanna put you on the phone with some guys I want to bring into the system” —- and I’m like …….. ” I need you to fill out your PROFILE before you put me on the phone with anybody!!!”

and he’s like “Yea Al, I get what you’re trying to do; and I’m gonna do that; but you really gotta talk with these guys; they got a $15 program you might wanna add to the system you have…. Oh and I’m setting up a system too with the programs i want to have in it…” …

I shake my head.

“It’s about the TEAM not the COMPANIES!!” ….

Seriously ….. when I found out MLM is the people business, I had doubts; I never really been a fan of people (admission – most of you bother me on so many levels – I try to smile and look for the good anyways – because I REALLY wanna help people! …. but people are SOOOO hard to help!)

So this new ‘leader’ — has gotten on my nerves; he keeps wanting me to LOOK at this or that; and says he ‘gets’ what I’m saying; and yet, he’s not Acting like it; SUPER disrespectful; So I tell the guy — ” i respect that you’re a Pastor, and I’m not gonna come to your Church and Tell you how to Preach to your Congregation, but you are on My Ship; and if you’re gonna be on my ship, you need to follow the command, or get OFF the ship! I do not need to be SHOWN anything but you filling yout that profile.”

This Ignant cat STILL wanted to talk to me about looking at the $15 — so I politely excused him from participation. What mostly bothered me, is I gave him my definition of a business partnership; to which he wanted to argue. He wanted to tell me that a Husband needs to listen to his Wife…..

at which point in time, I reminded this Pastor That he’s not Biblical; because the BIBLE says “wives, Submit to your Husbands” – it does not say Husbands Submit to your WIVES — and frankly … ok I already ranted on that — (no longer working with any Man who has to ask his Wife for permission to make money!) —- DIGRESSING — the point is; Even the BIBLE states – a “good partnership’ has ONE Leader; and ONE Follower.

TWO Leaders aint no Partnership;

TWO Leaders trying to Lead Each OTHER will NEVER win Championships!

WHO Wants to WIN in 2014???

INBOX me — but if you’re not BETTER than me; if your SKILLS are not on MY LEVEL — Do not come at me with WHO you’re listening to; and what you KNOW; and what you THINK;

COME to my Ship, play by MY RULES; PRODUCE –and “then” we can discuss what you know, what you think, and what you feel ….

PRODUCE — FOLLOW my Lead — OR get your ass off my Boat.
