Today is National Train Your Brain Day! What better way to train our brains than with words of wisdom from the genius behind the business? To celebrate National Train Your Brain Day, we decided to take a look back at some of our favorite brain spankings from Founder, Chairman, and CEO, JR Ridinger. Continue reading to rediscover a few of our favorite lessons from JR Ridinger from over the years.
The Tightrope Story:
During the 2015 Market America International Convention, JR Ridinger illustrated the power of belief by performing a symbolic tightrope walk across Niagara Falls with the Shopping Annuity Wheelbarrow. Much like the original daredevil who performed this stunt, JR’s belief in himself and his will to succeed helped see him through to the other side. UnFranchise Owners who share that same belief in the Shopping Annuity will reap the benefits of recognizing and capitalizing on this paradigm-shift.
Imprinting is the natural phenomenon found in fowl that serves as evolution’s way to ensure the right habits and behaviors are learned by the next generation. Imprinting is a result of genetics and is required for the bird to succeed and even determines how well they do in life. It is difficult to change one’s habits once they have been imprinted.
In fact, imprinting directly correlates with the UnFranchise® Business because the same principles apply for both. Imprinting process is identical to what happens to someone when they come into the business (right or wrong) and affects what they do and duplicate. When you bring someone into the business, they are essentially a newborn. Newborns have to learn basic skills in order to survive. The same can be said for new UFOs. Their sponsors need to imprint the right techniques in order to thrive as an entrepreneur in this business.
Chickens, ducks, and geese all practice imprinting, but JR wants UnFranchise Owners to be geese that fly in a “V” formation. Here is the correlation between imprinting and the UnFranchise Business.
In this presentation, JR compares the UnFranchise Business to priming a pump at drinking well. It takes some work to get the pump primed, but once you have put something into it yourself such as water, you will have a steady stream of clean water flowing. That’s exactly how our business works. You have to commit yourself to build the business the right way, but once you do, you’ll have a steady stream of residual income!
