Sometimes it happens to the nicest of people and it oftens happens slowly and subtly. These are the signs that you are becoming indocrinated and you are likely annoying your friends and loved ones at this point. It may not be apparent right away but the change occurs and eventually becomes very noticeable to those who know you. I hope this helps:
*You're driven to recruit everyone you know. You may even resort to deception or outright lies to get people to meetings. Before you know it, your family and friends avoid you like the plague. You end up spending time at malls, coffee shops, and other public placse scouting for recruits. You almost become phony in talking to people and feigning interest in other people and their interests. You will do anything to get someone to "see the plan".
You're encouraged to develop an unreasonable, irrational zeal for the products. Even so far as to justify the quality of toilet paper or to call the products prestigious. You may even argue the quality of energy drinks or about phytonutrients, something you may not even know about. You will argue about concentration or rationalize paying more for common everyday cleaning products to promote your Amway business.
A whole bunch of demands, promises, or subtle threats of failure are made if you don't try hard enough. You "must" participate in the promotional material and motivational seminars. i.e. If you quit, you are a loser destined to die broke and unhappy. Or you let someone steal your dream. These ridiculous claims are how your upline keeps you hooked. Not making enough money? Listen to more cds and attend more functions! Not sponsoring downline? Listen to more cds and attend more functions! Having trouble selling products? Listen to more cds and attend more functions!
Because the system is touted as the way you're going to make yourself fantastically rich, you're under pressure to drop any conflicting or competing interests such as your bowling league or golf club. Nothing else in life has importance except for the quest of financial freedom. All activities in your life must enhance your Amway business and have an affect on your financial future. No other activities matter to you unless it affects your financial future. Even family and friends may be shunned in your quest for the holy financial grail. This is true even if Amway is causing you to lose money each and every month. But you are a "winner" because you're in Amway.
Your upline soon becomes your most trusted friend. Your thoughts and feelings are shaped in part by the cds, meetings and functions. People who you may have trusted all your life suddenly becomes secondary in your life because of your undying loyalty to your upline.
Do you recognize these behaviors? If you're like this, you have become an Amway drone.
