I was reading a write up on Facebook back in December and was blown away by what I was reading.  It was a story about a young lady that was deaf and mute.  She was riding a horse in a competition without a saddle or bridle.  The story said that she had a special connection with horses because of her disabilities.  I went on to read that she was training this particular horse for only 21 days before this competition and that made the story even more amazing.  I watched the attached video and was blown away.  The next morning I got my kids up and had them gather around my computer and watch this amazing overcomer.

I later got on youtube and wanted to see if there were anymore videos about this lady.  To my surprise there was a video of this lady on a TV talk show and she was not deaf or mute.  She said in the interview that she had at least 800+ hrs on that horse training it to ride like that without a bridle.  I was blown away.  Everything that I thought was true just got spun on me.

I wonder how many times this happens now166910_335954766449331_1894289406_n days?  I know Facebook is well known for untrue stories to be posted.  It’s almost like people dont have to source their info anymore. Many people will put stuff out online and there is very little to no truth to it at all.  Its very sad because most people will believe it if they read it online wether it is true or not.

Click here to see the video. This link is to her blog and tells her response to the false claims.  Very interesting.  Hope this makes you think about the info you read online next time before you believe it first.

 

Dont fall into the trap of believing untruth.

I have had the pleasure of working with Orrin Woodward over the last 10years of my life and it has been great.  He is a winner and likes to create win/win programs.  Bill Lewis did an article about Orrin just recently and I wanted to share some of it with you here.

The Shocking Truth about Orrin Woodward

If you are searching for information about Orrin Woodward and / or his business ( the-team.biz / the-life-business.com ) then you have come to the right spot.  Do you have questions about his character and integrity.  Do you have questions about how he has set up his business.  Maybe you just are trying to get a general feel about who he is as a man because someone you know has hyped him up sooooooo much.  Many people have asked me these questions over the past 14 years and hopefully this article will give you a little insight.  I am a very logical person and so my thought will be based on some simple knowledge and the facts as I know them.

First of all when digging into information about anything or anyone it is very important to make sure you are approaching the process the correct way.  When I go out into cyber world and try to find information I want to be looking for facts not people’s opinions.  Facts are hard to find in today’s world but as they say “the facts are the facts”.  Now, if it is a product you are researching it is usually pretty easy.  It worked or it didn’t work.  They liked this about the product or they didn’t like thisabout the product.  Even with that there are site’s that will only try to discredit their competitor so you will go to their site and purchase the same product from them.  When researching a person, those rules are harder to follow because the person themselves is the product and people’s opinions are usually not based on the facts they are based on feelings.  Everyone reading this has a person in your life that gives you the cold shoulder and you don’t really know why.  There are only two conclusions you can come to.  They either don’t have all the facts or you would know why they felt that way, or they are unwilling to forgive for what happened.  The interesting thing about forgiveness is when they do something incorrect I am sure they will EXPECT  your forgiveness. Click here to read the rest of the article.

Always remember that when you are looking online and learning, sometimes you have to be able to see through the crap.  I remember Orrin saying that he was ” creative destruction.”  Always remember that people don’t like those that change the game.  I love being in a time when we are able to be game changers for the world.

Orrin, thanks for everything that you do, and who you are.  You are a rare bird these days.

Have a great week readers,

Oasis of the Seas

 

Last week Beth and I went on a cruise for our 10th anniversary to the Western Caribbean.  We had so much fun.  Our 1st stop was Grand Cayman and we did our 1st scuba experience.  We are hooked.  It was so cool, a totally new world was exposed to us.  Our 2nd stop was Cozumel, Mexico.  When we pulled up to port we looked over and saw this amazing ship.  The cool thing about this is that the LIFE company is giving away free trips on this ship if you do a certain amount of work. ( the work you have to do to get this amazing trip is not that much.)

Its like a small country on the water.  I can’t believe how cool it looked.  If you have anyone that you are working with or yourself wants to go on this trip, leave a comment.  Also, if you have found a cool video online about this ship please leave a link as a comment.

 

Happy sailing to those brave souls that will get this free cruise,

Orrin of the-team.biz has come up with another great illustration to describe the 8F growth process.  I have seen a simliar diagram used to visually show improvement in a persons golf game.  These kind of diagram are great because they give an immediate feedback on how you are doing.  bill lewis

Chris Brady and I flew up to Atlanta for a 6 hour mastermind session on Tuesday. Here is one of many concepts that were generated from brainstorming together. Generating ideas with Chris Brady is like drinking water from a firehose – fast and furious! :) I love our 17 year business partnership! LIFE is something special and I have never felt as good about community building as I do today. Laurie and I started a new leg 10 days ago and it is now over 10 levels in depth! The LIFE Business is good because it helps people become good in their Circle of LIFE. Here is Brady’s article explaining what our products do in a person’s life. Sincerely, Orrin Woodward

I had a very engaging conversation with my friend and co-author Orrin Woodward today.  As usual, we kicked around a ton of stimulating ideas and pieced together something that, in our estimation, will immediately convey greater understanding as to the purpose of the LIFE business.  (See the inset diagram).

The CIRCLE of LIFE

In each of the 8 F categories of Faith, Family, Finances, Fitness, Following, Freedom, Friendship, and Fun, one can imagine a certain grade based upon how one is doing in that category. In the diagram the center represents horrible, as in, you are totally “stinking up the joint” (as my kids say) in a certain category. Working your way out from the center to the outer ring in any of the categories represents a stronger grade.  So someone with a dot near the outer ring is doing well in that category.  By connecting the dots on your subjective personal estimation of your life at this moment in each of the categories you can come up with a shape that roughly represents your life right now in each of the 8Fs.

Quite simply, the LIFE business supplies life-changing information to help you increase your score in each of the 8Fs.  The goal is to take someone from the not-so-good black shape represented toward the center of the diagram to the much improved (and happier, we would think) life represented by the red outline toward the outer ring of the circle.

Who doesn’t have at least a category or two, or three, or eight, in which he or she would like to have a better score? Who wouldn’t want to transform his or her life from the tiny blob (and who among us hasn’t felt like a tiny blob from time to time?) in the center to the big wheel (and who hasn’t wanted to be a big wheel at least once in his or her life?) toward the outer ring?

That’s it.  From little blob to big wheel.

But all kidding aside.  This CIRCLE of LIFE is the snap-shot diagram to which people can easily relate when it comes to understand the goal of LIFE and the life-changing information we offer.  We will help people learn and apply truth in each category and thereby improve their shape.

LIFE: Because leadership is for everyone!

I love this wheel.  My LIFE wheel used to have flat spots on it, big one’s.-Steve Morgan

Why is it that the greatest leaders of all-time seem to either have rabid fans or rabid critics? The answer is simple: truth polarizes. When a leader leads with his convictions, others, who do not hold the same convictions, will criticize the endeavor. Throughout history, men and women like Mother Theresa, Martin Luther, Sam Walton, Oliver Cromwell, George Washington, and Abraham Lincoln, to name a few, have received mountaintop praise and sewer-based criticisms. In fact, if a person desires to change the world, then he better build a tough skin while maintaining a soft heart, because he will be criticized!-Orrin Woodward

 

I have seen this in my own LIFE.  As I went out and started my business there were many that criticized what I was doing.  I could never understand why someone would criticize a person for trying to do better and trying to get ahead.  Then one day I was at a Team leadership seminar and I heard the answer.  The speaker said that its like watching a dog that is chasing a rabbit.  The dog is running over plants, through bushes, doing everything he can to try and catch the rabbit.    If the people who were watching the dog couldn’t see the rabbit they would think the dog was crazy.  This is how some of my critics saw me.

 

Orrin also covers how and why conflict resolution is important.  Hope you enjoy it.- Bill Lewis

 

People don’t understand how important Conflict resolution is in LIFE. Please read up on this, the world needs it.- Steve Morgan
