Sounds so simple. Will everyone you encounter share your
enthusiasm and believe in your opportunity? Will your
pessimistic prospects ever break free from the mental
chains that keep them imprisoned. Will they ever take
that first step and actually “believe it before they
No, not likely. And that’s one of the fundamental flaws
in today’s business opportunity arena.
You’ve said previously that “people” can make a giant lifetime
residual income. Can’t anyone do this?
Yes, “people” can, but the average negative person can’t. Let
me tell you a story to amplify my point.
There was a scorpion and a frog. Both trying to get across the
stream. And the scorpion shouted over to the frog, “Hey Mr. frog,
can I hitch a ride on your back? I’ve got to get across the
As you know, scorpions can’t swim. And if the scorpion went
across himself he’d drown. The frog replied, “No way Mr.
Scorpion! Scorpions sting frogs and the second we’d get across
the stream you’d sting me and I’d die.”
“Ah, come on” said the scorpion! “I wouldn’t do that.” He
continued, “Heck, if I stung you and you died, YOU would drown
and so would I.”
Well, the frog thought for a moment. Scratched his little frog
forehead and replied, “okay Mr. Scorpion, hop on. I’ll take you
Sure enough. The scorpion scurried over to the nervous frog,
inched up the frog’s back and just as they got about half way
across the stream, don’t you know that the darn scorpion stung
the frog with his poisonous venom!
Naturally the frog was outraged. “How could you do this?” asked
“Here I am, minding my own business and decide to help you out.
You promise not to sting me and bam — there you go and do it anyway”!
“I couldn’t help it” said the scorpion.
“Couldn’t help it” shuttered the frog? “You dumb fool, here we
are out in the middle of the stream. I’m about to die and you’re
on my back and you’ll be drowned any second now. How could you
do such a horrible and stupid thing all at the same time?”
The scorpion, who didn’t miss a beat and who didn’t bat an eye
simply replied, “How could I have done such a thing? — It’s
simple. I’m a scorpion and scorpions kill frogs.”
Great story! It’s more than a story though. It’s life.
Here’s my point: people are who they are and will act and behave
accordingly. Which brings me back to my point — You can’t expect
negative, non-visionary people to make above average income. It
just can’t be done. And the proof itself is the “business opportunity
model,” which over the past 30 years has proven my hypothesis correct.
