Posts Tagged ‘Orrin Woodward Team’

In the last 10 years of my life I have learned so much about success and adversity from the info that the LIFE Business offers.  Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady have really laid a foundation of great core teaching.  I love watching a good movie that has all the adversity and set backs for the character and they fight to victory.  I really like them when they are based on a true story.

My mentor Bill Lewis just wrote an article about this topic and I thought it would be great to share it though my blog and have you be able to read it.  Keep in mind as you read Bill Lewis’s article, that he mentors a bunch of financially free people and leads thousands of people on their freedom journey.  He has a unique perspective on this topic as he get a front row seat to how they handle ” set backs.”

How Do You Handle Setbacks?

As many of you that read my blog know, I have a lot of contact with people that are on the journey of success. This gives me a great window to view how people react to failures. What has become very evident is that the way a person views his failures will ultimately determine his overall success. I have seen it both ways. I have seen the person who gets knocked down again and again but continues to get back up and fight for his victory. And I have also seen the person who doesn’t get knocked down but gives in to failure anyway because it looks like he is going to get knocked down. If you can take a hard look at how you view failures and get back up every time, then success is yours. As I talk about this, do not take this as me looking down on people who have failed. I know that the majority of people have never been taught the principles of success. I failed for 28 years of my life until I was exposed to the LIFE business and my mentor Orrin Woodward. That is why we need to talk about it, so we can learn to view it through the correct lens.

I hope this blog was a blessing to you.  I love info like this, its the difference between winners and losers.

It’s amazing how many people are upset right now about the future.  I am glad that people are getting upset, thats when things will start to change.  It’s like a big wakeup call.  I read this article the other day and thought it was pretty interesting.  I would like to share it with you.

 

Why We Need a Third Party

November 17th, 2012 // 10:36 am

by Oliver DeMillesigned 3 217x300 Why We Need a Third Party

In the aftermath of the 2012 election, there have been numerous emails, posts, articles and blogs by business owners who say they are planning to sell or close their businesses, or just lay off enough workers that they can afford Obamacare for the employees who remain.

One summary listed the following announced layoffs—all attempts to deal with the new costs of Obamacare:

  • Welch Allyn, 275 layoffs
  • Stryker, 1170 layoffs
  • Boston Scientific, between 1200 and 1400 layoffs
  • Medtronic, 1000 layoffs
  • Smith and Nephew, 770 layoffs
  • Hill Rom, 200 layoffs
  • Kinetic Concepts, 427 layoffs
  • Coviden, 595 layoffs
  • Abbot Labs, 427 layoffs
  • St. June Medical, 300 layoffs

There are many, many others.

One email dated November 7, the day after the election, read:

“Time to sell our business. We can no longer afford to provide a living for 14 employees as soon we’re forced to pay for their healthcare. So sad, too bad. On to new ventures.”

It’s good to see people getting upset when they start to lose freedom.  It’s when they don’t get upset, you should worry.  Don’t think that someone else is gonna fix it though.  A great saying for us all to live by should be “If it is to be it’s up to me.”

 

thanks for reading

To whom it may concern,

A new book called Leader Shift, is coming out April 16th 2013.  This book was written by Orrin Woodward and Oliver DeMille.  What appropriate timing.  It seems that everywhere I go people are upset about freedom today.  I know that most people don’t understand the topics and the impact that they have. Woodward and DeMille definitely do, that is why they wrote this book.

I interviewed Woodward last saturday in Grand Rapids Michigan in front of thousands of people.  I asked him to tell us a little about this book, in about 2-5 minutes of his explanation the crowd went crazy.  I believe that this book will be a game changer for Americans.  The book is a fable in which a problem is shown and a solution is given.  I can’t wait to get my hands on this book.  It’s very important to have knowledge about the important things that we need to know about freedom.

I would like to ask you one favor, please dig in and learn about the true pieces of freedom.  I always tell people that we are either part of the problem or part of the solution, but we cant be both.

 

Oliver’s other recent book is 1913 and is an amazing read also.  Click here if you would like to find where you can purchase this book.

 

Dig in, Freedom’s worth it,

We are sitting in weird times.  If you have a job, you are probably trying to make more US dollars than last year.  Seems like a simple thing, its not that easy.

I just finished reading a book written by Oliver DeMille called 1913, a fantastic book.  I think all Americans should read this.  Its an easy read, even if you aren’t an avid reader. DeMille simplifies when actual freedom started to fall in the US.  Its not one of those doom and gloom books though, he gives solutions to the problem.

I’m convinced that if the average person is just trying to get a raise they will run out of options quick.  For example, when our paper dollars are printed by a privately owned company that prints it in amazing quantities, our dollars don’t keep their buying power.

For example: If you make 80K/yr and they print Trillions and place it in the marketplace, your value of your 80K is of lesser value.  It’s a game you can’t win.  Most people that I have ever met, have no clue that the Federal Reserve is a privately owned company (a monopoly on the American money system).

A scary thing that Oliver DeMille covered in the later chapters of the book was that there has been 4 things passed since 2009 that majorly effect our rights as Americans.  I want to explain them here.

1. “No Bills of Attainder” this means no laws will form directed at specific citizens.  This one was broken in 2009 during the financial meltdown.

2. Ex Post Facto laws should never be passed.  These are laws that get passed and applied retroactively so something that is legal today may become illegal next week and you may be arrested and prosecuted for doing it even when it was legal.

3.  Seperating state and federal power. When the Health Care Bill was passed it was the first federal law to break this.  DeMille says ” The Obama-led health care law was the first federal law to break these, and it set a dangerous precedent for the future.  In short, under this model, U.S. presidents and Congress can add one or two sentences in any bill at any time that requires Americans to do or buy anything–and pretty much nobody is likely to know until the law is passed.”

4. DeMille also says “A fourth blow to the freedom came in 2012 when the U.S. adopted the National Defense Authorization Act, which allows military personnel to arrest and hold American citizens in indefinite incarceration without warrant, charges, or trial.”  He goes on to say they can do this ” without court oversight or any of the requirements of due process listed in the first ten amendments of the Constitution.”

Those 4 things are very scary, but most people are more worried about getting a $2/ hr raise next year and it wont take you forward as fast as the flow will take you backwards.  I hope that this small part of the book will get you interested in reading it.  If people dont decide to read, then according to DeMille, we are part of the problem not part of the solution.  I am very concerned about this stuff, I have kids.  Some day I will have to tell them that I either did or didn’t try to make their life better in America.

I believe most people out there are more concerned about some sporting event or season than they really are about freedom.

Chris Brady said one time, ” every fallen country leaves their stadiums behind to show what the people did at the end of the country.”

 

thanks for reading.

This is an interesting strategy when you think about building a company.  I love the teaching of Orin Woodward and Chris Brady.  They are amazing guys with so much great knowledge to share.  I am attaching an article from OrrinWoodwards blog, hope you enjoy it.

Strategies for Compensated Community Building

World War II Europe

Both Chris Brady and I love studying history. War history, in particular, is a fascinating way to study leadership, strategy, and courage. Since business is basically economic warfare, where the company who best serves the customer wins (at least in a true free enterprise setting), Chris Brady and I developed a warfare analogy to describe the building of communities. First, one must conquer new territories through building depth. Second, one must fortify the territory through education and LIFE skills. Third, and the final step, one must domesticate the new territory by producing volume within the community. These three simple, but not always easy, steps produce long-term growth.

Reflecting over the years of building communities, no analogy does a better job of describing the keys to building communities – Conquer, Fortify, and Domesticate, or put another way: Depth, Numbers, Volume. When a person builds depth, he can build numbers, which ultimately leads to building volume. The majors in both Springfield and Milwaukee will covers these concepts in more detail. It reminds me of a talk I gave many years ago – Depth is not an Option. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Majors.

Sincerely,

Orrin Woodward

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,

Beth and I went to Mexico on a vacation a couple of weeks ago.  It was so much fun.  The part that I thought was so interesting was when we visited Tulum.  We went on a tour of the Mayan ruins. It was an amazing experience and very enlightening. I am going to do the best to my memory to explain the story that our tour guide told us.

 The Mayans were a culture of people that lived in a climate that doesn’t really have seasons.  Our guide described them as hot & hotter.  This lead to its own problems of not knowing when or how to plan ahead for farming.  I personally live in Michigan and we have 4 beautiful seasons, so it made me very thankful to live where I do.  As we walked to the ruins she was telling us some of the story and I was blown away.  Apparently the “royal” family would, keep themselves separate from the others, and create a physical difference by elongating their skulls.  They would start this process when their baby was little, they would put a block of wood on the front and back of they babies head and tie rope around the head to create the elongated skull look.  They did this so that they could claim that they were different from the common folk.  Almost like man-gods.
This is where the story got weird, the “royal” people had a calendar and didn’t tell everyone else about it.  It was a 19 month calendar and one of the months was only 5 days long. ( it was winter solstice.)  The other months were based on the cycle of the moon.  They would go into the public and tell the people to plant the seeds and they would talk to the rain gods and see if they would bless them with rain.  You can probably imagine what kind of power would come from this type of secret.  They would sacrifice an unknown amount of people claiming that it was for the gods.  On June 20th each year there would be another created phenomenon, at sunrise, the sun would shine through a properly placed building and make a star through the front door.  Its easy to predict where to build a building when you know the calendar and the day that the sun will be there.  Once again I was amazed with the trickiness of the leaders of the mayan culture in this area.
As I was learning of this new info about the mayans I was remembering about good ole’ America and how the same thing has happened here.  Recently Orrin Woodward wrote an article about Andrew Jackson.
Here is some of the article from Orrin Woodwards Blog:

Andrew Jackson, right or wrong, was always a man of strong convictions. He stood by his libertarian principles even when it hurt him politically to do so. It takes courage to stand by one’s convictions, especially when a person is offered peace and financial rewards to surrender them. Courage isn’t the absence of fear; rather, it’s the acknowledgement that one’s principles are bigger than one’s fears, regardless of the consequences.

In today’s “situational ethics” society, principles are sold out for pragmatism, making courageous stories like Andrew Jackson’s as rare as gold-backed currency. Consequently, much could be learned by the study of Andrew Jackson’s stand against the “moneyed interest” drive to re-charter the Second National Bank. Indeed, through reading Jackson’s battles against the Bank, one yearns to find leaders with similar backbones to break the Federal Reserve monopoly on America’s money. Let’s examine this historic battle between the President Andrew Jackson of the United States of America versus President Nicholas Biddle of the Second National Bank. Several questions come to mind. First, what are the leadership lessons learned from this historic struggle between the statist and anti-statists philosophies of money? Second, how do the lessons from Jackson’s battle apply in today’s battle for monetary freedom? Click here to read the rest of the article.

I agree that our biggest problem that we face in America is the privatization of the Federal Reserve.  At first when I heard this I thought, how could this be that big of a deal?  Then I learned that it is a privately owned company that sells paper $ to the United States of America and charges us interest on it.  Now you have to think about it for a minute, thats a big problem.  We as Americans have to work very hard each and every year.  The problem is that 8 private owners of the Federal Reserve decide what we owe in the future and are not accountable to anyone.  This is pandemic is size because in 1913 the US for the 1st time since the revolution decided to let a private group, or central bank, run the future of our country.  From the revolution to the time of the Federal Reserve a dollar was worth a dollar.  Now it has the buying power of 2cents compared to a dollar in 1913.  This issue has hurt Americans in so many ways.  It has taken freedom from us and given it to private bankers.  If you think about it, this problem has had a bigger impact on the American family than divorce.  This issue affects everyone of us even if we don’t care about it.  The fact that Andrew Jackson devoted his career to stopping the bank is a big deal. This is an issue that we need to take serious in our lifetime.
In a recent CD that I heard from Oliver DeMille he said ” you will only be as free as you know how to be.”  You may the person that reads this article and rolls their eyes and does nothing.  Or you are the person that digs in and tries to learn more on this topic.  They say in life you are either part of the problem or part of the solution.  I hope for the sake of the future of our country that you decide to become educated on this topic.

Leave some comments and lets get the public more educated on this topic. If people would put aside differences and work together on this one topic we could be more free than we have ever been in 100years.
