Could not write anything for long time, but seemingly made to wake up and write one more interesting piece of information on Amway. Now that I have quit Amway long time ago, I only look to help people to take critical decision when it comes to Amway, through my writing. The news is, success in Amway is sheer luck or chance and it is equivalent to gambling in a practical sense. My upline called me to check my well being! Surprising, but yes, he asked usual question like how are you? How is work? How is family? And so on. Later topic turned towards the famous Amway phrase “I called for a specific reason”. Then came, ‘we learnt a few things from a diamond regarding health. Why don’t we meet up and talk? You already know so much about Nutrilite but my purpose is not to talk about that, I just wanted to come and meet spend some time with you after a long time’. So nice they show up, cannot fake so good, so I had to quit Amway.
So he asked me for half an hours time and came on a Good Friday, in fact he called previous night just to make sure I might be available. I did not want to disappoint him over the phone and agreed for meeting him at my home next day that is, on Good Friday. So in he came and started with same yellow pad, no red ink this time, but blue ink! Then he started saying, in India, one out of five people suffer from blindness, osteoporosis/osteoarthritis. There are so many people who suffer from cancer, WHO has already warned India about this. So many people in India are obese and so many have blood pressure at such a young age. He went to ask his ready made question why for what? Then he said forty four percent of what we consume has pesticide in it. Vegetables are not safe, meat is not safe and for that matter even the milk we drink is not safe either. Everything we consume for our body has chemical in it. So we cannot be healthy.
Next he went on to talk about the pollution which is so evident. Then he talked about what do we do when we have problem. We seem to avoid them. He said there are two types of organs – conscious and subconscious. Former lets us know what it needs and latter does not tell us. We get hungry and we eat, we get pain while walking and hence we take rest. But how about bones and blood? They do not tell us anything but because of nutrition issues they get weak and affect our health. So what happens in reality? Like not paying property tax, you will not be asked every now and then but a few years later you may have to pay one hefty amount. Similarly, you may not notice heart disease at early stage due to obesity or cholesterol but some day, you may have to spend lots of money. Therefore, only way out is to ‘invest’ in health regularly so that we can avoid health issues in elderly age. He in fact claimed, age 25 is also elderly age based on fitness level of many salaried and white collar job holders. This Looked ridiculous but I did not want to talk. He also talked about calcium and many other things as well, just pretending to show off like a doctor.
So he said, for each person you may have to spend two-three thousand per month. So that is over a lakh rupees extra for a family of four people! For how many years? As long as you want, probably as long as your family exists and the company Nutrilite. So let us assume, a young family like mine, takes Nutrilite for ten years spending over twelve lakh rupees, what does that mean? Ridiculous decision made, it is better to live a life with the things you want and pay some amounts of insurance rather than, trying to fool-proof the unforeseen health, which no one managed to control beforehand. Why do we keep making false claims? Our elders did not have better health. Diseases were sweeping masses, kids mortality was a common thing. After invention of science and technology, life expectancy has improved all over the world. India has more than doubled the population in last forty years and still people have food to eat because production has improved so well. We cannot just eat tablets and survive! Do we? If I buy Nutrilite he gets PV so is the propaganda.
He later on went to talk to my ex-downline and showed the same ‘presentation’ to ask him to take Nutrilite. He even asked, what did you do anything productive in your daily life after quitting Amway. My ex-downline did not bother to answer too much and this guy shamelessly took those old CDs and books! Is that part of cost cutting? Hs wife continues to ask questions to my wife on Facebook messenger? When did Amway BWW start using Internet to sell PVs and dreams? My great upline who talks about financial freedom is not even a platinum after ‘building the business’ with so much of skill and dedication for six years! Sometimes, I feel pity for him, even after so many years he does not realise ‘Amway is like a gambling, Amway never works for majority’ and it is never an option to business for life. Still talks about the PV goals and diamond dreams, keeps believing his upline. Keeps making false claims like ‘I do not bother for job and hikes’. His health itself is in jeopardy, he is stressed out and obese which could be clearly seen on face and body. If free-radical damage has to come from lack of rest and stress my upline is a ready example. At least overweight by twenty KGs propagating health issues in India
Happy quitting Amway!Read More
