Basketball Hall of Famer, Scottie Pippen, talked about Prime Joint
Scottie, a brand ambassador for Prime Joint Support Formula by Isotonix shared what Prime Joint By Isotonix has done for his body. Scottie credits Prime Joint Formula for giving him the ability to work out and live a healthy lifestyle as he ages. “The most important thing to do is believe in yourself and to dream. When you’re going down that road, you still have to feel that you can get to the end of the tunnel and be successful.”
Out of Bounds
It’s no secret that as successful as Loren Ridinger is she is equally insightful and inspirational. She always manages to deliver a perfectly timed message that UnFranchise Owners need to hear. This year was no different as she shared what it means to live out of bounds. Loren talked about the definition of comfort zones and how people get trapped in a box because of what society tells them. “When they gave you that blueprint for life, they forgot to tell you how to dream!” Loren shared how to step out of the box of “norms” and truly live your life out of bounds. In a touching moment, Loren shared the inspirational stories of Jim Winkler and Cliff Floyd. Both have experienced tragic losses, but they did not let that stop them in life. They honored their loved ones by living life to the fullest and achieving success. Loren shared the story of UnFranchise Owner Trina Maduro, who built her business from a women’s shelter because she would not let her home situation be an excuse in her life. She took back her life and brought 60 people to World Conference today. Get inspired by Loren’s phenomenal presentation here.
Belief: MPCP + MPCP² + MPCP³
JR’s closing presentation was nothing short of amazing. The number one product that JR sells is belief, which is the most valuable thing in the world for JR. The four beliefs that you must have are belief in something greater than yourself, belief in yourself, belief in the business / company, and the belief in your sponsors and teams. JR flashed back to videos from a few previous presentations at conventions throughout his presentation to drive that belief home for every UnFranchise Owner. He showed the video of the steps. You can’t skip any steps, or take any shortcuts to get there. You have to be able to take the time to take the proper steps. JR showed the video of comparing success to breathing. You should want success like you want air to breathe. Everyone wants a nest egg or financial security and freedom. The shopping annuity is the solution. JR’s next example involved the wheel and how you can’t left life just pass you by. You have to take control of your life and live it to the fullest. “This is the greatest accomplishment you can achieve.” JR also brought out the “Joe Nobody” Gravestone, which teaches you to that you can do anything you want, but only if you are not afraid to live. If you succeed, you will silence all of the critics. JR destroyed the gravestone and said he is now free! Relive JR’s full presentation here.
