The Goal is Eagle

Tape: Eagle Steps: A Pattern for Living

Speakers: Ardith Griffing

Stock Number: BWW198 (3 Message CD)

Recording Type: ‘Basic Mix’

Teaching Points:

“I’m not saying [the job lifestyle] is wrong for them, for me, after seeing this awesome opportunity, I didn’t wan to go back and make that rut deeper and deeper, and deeper.”

To find out where you will be in five years, find a person that has been working where you are fir five years longer and look at them.

You break out of your J.O.B. rut by making the eagle activities habit.

You need to listen to the tapes to break the old habits J.O.B. habits, but it is a choice: Do you want to stay in the rut or get out?

A pattern for Living (She quotes this from the book ‘Courage for the Chickenhearted” by Becky Freeman):

Material: Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Faith, Goodness, Gentleness, Meekness, and temperance (For those curious, those are from Galatians 6:22-23; King James version).

Notions: Elasticity, Variety, Sense of Humor, Forbearance, A Lip Zipper, A Back Bone Stiffening. (These are NOT from the Bible)


How wide is your understanding?

How long is your patience?

How deep is your love?

Ardith uses some common sense points to talk about end results and how it is difficult to discipline yourself to get to those results. She uses this to tie into doing the core steps (Standing Order Tape, Book of the Month, Attending all Functions, One Domain, Communikate, etc.) to get the end results in the business. If doing those things actually lead to building a successful business, there would not be a problem, but in reality, those are just empty tools of motivation that rarely work serving no real purpose except enriching the pocketbook of the top of the group.

She ends her talk with a quote from Psalms 139:

“For You created our inmost being. You knit us together in our mother’s womb. We praise You because we are fearfully and wonderfully made.”

Just for the record, and I know you already know this, X; but there should be NO Eagle goal.

Amway/Quixtar traditional goals are 100PV in One Time-Sales, 100PV in continuous monthly goals, 1000PV, 1500PV, 4000PV and Silver Producer followed by Gold producer, followed by Platinum.

These are volume and sales goals.

Eagle is a "made up" goal, with no basis in the Sales and Marketing Plan.

In MY Opinion, the rebuttal to this tape is plain and simple, "Eagle" doesn't exist; why buy a tape about it?

I absolutely agree with you, Dave.

If Quixtar simply did away with Motivational Organizations, I would not bother with them. For the record, I still affirm that MLM is not a real good business model, but that is a personal opinion. It is not dangerous when done like you are doing it (to my understanding that you do not use motivational materials). When conjoined with an MO, however, MLM becomes a dangerous tool for personal destruction.

Drew at does a lot of good analysis on the Eagle program. In summary, the Eagle program is a way to fleece the people for even more money that does NOT need to be spent.
