Oprah, Fergie, and The Black Eyed Peas

Oprah, Fergie, and The Black Eyed Peas

Teamwork! That is the key. Working with other humans. In unison. As one.
Most people in network marketing try to do their own thing. They take the Lone Ranger approach. Like the first woman in this video.
When my wife called me in yesterday to sit me down to watch Oprah, I happily sat down and started folding laundry. She said no no – you gotta watch this. And so I did. And I was amazed. When I found it on YouTube I saw that 2 million viewers had already seen it. Wow. I have watched it half a dozen times already.
The Black Eyed Peas kick off the opening of the 24th season of the Oprah Winfrey in Chicago. The video starts with Fergie and The Black Eyed Peas jamming out to I Gotta Feeling – It’s gonna be a great day. The stage is loud, with lights, giant robots, explosions and – Oprah. And a crowd that is watching and very obviously not dancing. In the front row there is a woman, dancing her tail off, having a ball. As she is throwing her whole self, her whole body, into this funkadelic scene – everyone else is watching, motionless.
Sounds like my first experience in network marketing. I was crazed! Dancing like a maniac at the meetings. Yelling and screaming that I was gonna make a million bucks. And when I came home, I was the only one dancing. In fact 5 years later, after dumping thousands of dollars into the sizzle but never getting any steak, I was still dancing alone.
The video continues as slowly, but surely the crowd starts to move, and grove to the funky fresh hip hop jam that the band is brilliantly bringing from stage. Fergie gets down and dirty and the crowd goes nuts – literally – in a synchronized dance that actually plays the band. The crowd actually plays the band. And Oprah just watches in awe.
Fast forward to my current team. I started out dancing like a maniac screaming financial freedom from the roof tops and no one would listen. Sound familiar? Now I have a team of almost 10,000 people. Yes we all have separate attentions and intentions…separate teams building all over the continent and spread around 7 countries. But we are building with a common purpose, a common vision – to free people from physical and financial pain. And in the process we will create
more 6 and 7 figure income earners then any company in history.
Yes. It’s true we are dancing. We are having fun. We get healthier every single day. We are making money. We are Aligned with a common purpose, a common vision, a sychronized dance.
Just like the Black Eyed Peas pulled off from stage. A simple dance, as a team.
And Oprah loved it.
