I’ve Been Teaching the Same Thing for 30 Years

Tape: EDC Leadership, Go Diamond 2003 Part 4

Speakers: Rex Renfrow

Stock Number: BWW137

Recording Type: ‘Basic Mix’

Motivational Aspects:

Rex tells us that we can do it because he did it with no money, a long job, kids, and healthy problems.

Cult-like aspects:

“Some of you won’t be back next year. You are going to listen to the losers, you’re going to listen to the wrong people, you’re going to see something or read something. Something’s going to steal your dream. Something’s going to steal your why. You think there will be something better to fulfill your why and you’re not going to find it.” [We call this Information Control. Rex’s words are meant to keep you from listening to or examining any other source other then the leaders in the business or else you will not get what you want.]

Rex goes on for a long time about how Quixtar is the best business in the world. He talks about a lot of other companies seeking to replace them, people who can not see how good this business is, etc.

Rex also goes on about the board works only for the people. He says that the upper level guys that serve on that board do it for the people, not the leaders who make enough money not to need to go. [It appears that Rex is setting up how high and holy the leaders are. The simple truth is that if there was not a board, the whole business could have fallen apart long ago, thus the leaders would have to get J.O.B.s.]

Rex goes on about how BWW is the best system in the world. More disturbing is when he is challenging people who question the system. He admonishes to go make your own, and how would you make it better?

He then goes on to criticize the people who complain that the price of tapes increased. He says that they would otherwise go out and spend it on movies that are ‘negative and clutter up your mind with junk’ instead of a good tape with good information about how to succeed. [The movie that is wretched is at least discernibly so, but the false Christian teachings on all those tapes is a more deadly poison.]

Rex talks about finding the one thing that will stop you from building this business and then questions if that one thing is worth it to keep you from “this future”. He then says that “you deserve what you get.” He goes on to give an example from 9/11 that some of those people probably said no to the business and had to keep working. [This is exit phobia indoctrination, the indoctrination that makes you think that you are going to surely fail if you leave the organization.]

“What’s your relationship with your wife? Is she proud of you? Is she proud of your commitment that you made to provide for them? Are you just saying words [about building Quixtar]? Are your actions backing it up? Are you sitting around doing things that you know if not what you should be doing, and you should be devoted to this business.” [DeVos spoke directly against this kind of material in his Directly Speaking [MP3] tapes. First, if you are expected to be the provider of your family, you will not succeed. That is God’s job. But, you need to carry some responsibility, you know, WORK! And there is nothing wrong with having a job. Finally, why is he criticizing people for spending time with their wife instead of building Quixtar?]

“It didn’t work for you? Yes it will work for you! Just be honest and say, ‘I didn’t want to work it.’ It will work for anybody that works it properly.” [This takes all blame for a faulty system from the people profiting off that system and places it on the victim of that system. No person can guarantee anything to work 100% of the time if you just follow a simple set of steps. To suggest otherwise is a flat out lie. This is another form of exit phobia indoctrination.]

Talking about God, Rex tells us that there is no better place to fulfill His mission for us than in the Quixtar business.

BWW Tapespeak:

When you know the Why, you will figure out the How.

Other Notes:

Rex starts his tape by saying that people in BWW are constipated with knowledge. He says that the ‘how to’ has not changed in over 30 years. [This is interesting. With this in point, wouldn’t it make sense to say, “OK guys, if you have heard our training, here are the notes, we will be saying the same thing this session, so you don’t have to come.” Or at the very least, let the people come back a few times and let them realize it themselves. But the problem rises when the BWW teachers keep on saying that you have to keep coming back with the classic “optional, but required for success” talk.]

Rex allows for your Job to interfere with building the business. This is good, if it were applied across the board, it would eliminate some of the problems with the System.

Quixtar Rules Violations:

“If you are committed, you got your act right, and you are willing to pay the price, you got somebody who will help you [somewhere in the upline]” Funny, Quixtar rule 5.3.3 says:

IBOs must be able to train and motivate the IBOs they have registered with a minimum of assistance from his or her first upline Platinum or above. If the IBO is a member of an established business-building system, he or she may make arrangements for his or her IBOs to be trained and motivated by the activities and BSM of that system, but under no circumstances may an IBO be forced or coerced to participate in the system. If a downline IBO is unable, for any reason, to access the system or chooses not to use the system, his or her IBO must be able to provide training and motivation.

X, you quoted Rex R. thus:

'He then says that “you deserve what you get.” He goes on to give an example from 9/11 that some of those people probably said no to the business and had to keep working.'

Was he implying that those people may have died because they rejected the biz???!!! I hope I am taking this out of context. If he is implying what I am thinking he's implying, that is unconscionable. Even if one thinks the biz is the best thing in the world, there are limits to what you should say to prove your points.

Again, I hope I am misunderstanding his statement.

It is hard to say for sure. I am guessing that was his means. If you listen to him, it is literally one scare after another as to what will happen if you leave this business. If you want to listen for yourself to see if he means something else, I will give you the CD, just let me know.

Thanks for posting this. I was in a UK AMO called IBS, linked to the Yager organisation in the USA, between 1995-1999. We were sold as a tape of the week a Rex Renfrow tape called 'Are you willing to go the extra mile?' in about 1996, maybe 1997 where he says 'why not you? Why not you in '82?' so it was obviously an old tape even then. However, I found it one of the best ones to 'fire me up' and listened to it over and over until it wore out and I had to borrow my sponsor's copy to duplicate another as it was not available to purchase. I have listened to it again since finding out the truth about the business from 'Merchants of deception' and 'Behind the smoke and mirrors' as well as other websites and I still find his mixture of inspiration, biblical allusions and encouragement strangely compelling even although I know it's a big lie. Would be very interested to hear some more recent tapes from Mr Renfrow as the outline of this sounds more hardcore - perhaps this will finally convince me that he is one of the bad guys! Does he really say that about September 11? On the tape I have he says 'whether you know it or not, when I'm down in depth and I'm working with someone I don't have to be working with, his own family said 'you'll never amount to anything' and I see him get a smile back on his face and start to grow, then I'm giving... I go on down in depth and I help people.'

Say it isn't so, Joe!

I was listening to one of my vintage BWW tapes recently, Rex Renfrow speaking at Dave Taylor's 1995 Winter Conference.

One of my fave system quotes thus far: "With God, failure is impossible; without God, success is impossible."

Man, I love this stuff!!
