'MLM' is a guided-fantasy


Shyam 
Judging by the intellectually and psychologically retarded contents of Nikhil Bhatia's own Blog http://the-millionaire-inside-you.blogspot.com/ , I think that it is now pretty safe to say that this poor little 'MLM' dreamer is someone who was already exhibiting narcissistic traits, long before he encountered deluded 'Amway' recruiters.  
Remember, the 'Amway' trap works by identifying what it is that any potential victim most wants from life. Chronic 'Amway' adherents are constantly told that they can only achieve their 'dreams' by excluding all 'negative' thoughts and influences. In other words, the worst 'Amway' victims are persons who have been conditioned to dissociate themselves from external reality by persuading them that critical thinkers, and critical thinking, are real threats to their achieving the 'Amway' Utopia of total financial freedom. Thus, persons like Nikhil Bhatia, who already inhabit an ego-protecting fantasy, are perhaps the perfect, vulnerable targets for the billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob, whose cultic racket has been maliciously constructed to manipulate people's existing beliefs and instinctual desires and, thus, draw them into a guided-fantasy. 
As your free-thinking readers are already aware, ‘Narcissistic Personality Disorder,’ is a psychological term first used in 1971 by Dr. Heinz Kohut (1913-1981). It was recognised as the name for a form of pathological narcissism in ‘The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 1980.’ Narcissistic traits (where a person talks highly of himself/herself to eliminate feelings of worthlessness) are common in, and considered ‘normal’ to, human psychological development. When these traits become accentuated by a failure of the social environment and persist into adulthood, they can intensify to the level of a severe mental disorder. Severe and inflexible NPD is thought to effect less than 1% of the general adult population. It occurs more frequently in men than women. In simple terms, NPD is reality-denying, total self-worship born of its sufferers’ unconscious belief that they are flawed in a way that makes them fundamentally unacceptable to others. In order to shield themselves from the intolerable rejection and isolation which they unconsciously believe would follow if others recognised their defective nature, NPD sufferers go to almost any lengths to control others’ view of, and behaviour towards, them.  
Currently, NPD has nine recognised diagnostic criteria (five of which are required for a diagnosis): 
- has a grandiose sense of self-importance.
- is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, ideal love, etc.
- believes that he/she is special and unique and can only be understood by other special people.
- requires excessive admiration.
- strong sense of self-entitlement.
- takes advantage of others to achieve his/her own ends.
- lacks empathy.
- is often envious or believes that others are envious of him/her.
- arrogant disposition.

Thanks for all those sincere comments David and neglecting the reality.

Its a Goodbye from my side and as a matter of fact I am always growing even without Amway and that too legally.

Here are the prices of well known PUMA BRAND; if you think it is false. I cannot do anything more than that.

Puma Socks Exclusively from Amway (244279ID) - Rs209

Also I will tell you one more fact about myself

1) I am also a MATHS teacher and all my students whom I have taught over 3 years; have performed exceptionally well and beyond expectations.

2) Besides MATHS I also build confidence in them so that they can BELIEVE they too can get good MARKS and they always do.

3) The schools really lack the subject of personality development and that is why majority of children in India are unable to take pressure. Watch Taare Zameen Par - A very nice movie which shows the reality.

4) If I opened a school; I will make sure to develop the personality of children besides academics. Thats is a MUST FOR SUCCESS.

5) Just because I joined Amway and you start calling me NPD; it is just not correct.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder is a complete false statement from your side.

This fact was told by Napolean Hill in his book Think and Grow RICH and do you mean to say all those people whom Napolean Hill mentioned were NPD.

You must be kidding me :))

Just read that book for your own good; the book does not mentions Amway anywhere in case you are suspicious; even if you don't gain wealth from that book you will gain a lot of +ve energy.

I am not saying you are -ve but it is always good to get +ve energy as much as possible.

Cheers!!

Also go and read The MAGIC of THINKING BIG - A very popular book.

Some famous quotes of Swami Vivekananda just for you. I am a big fan of him; follow Ramakrishna Mission and also give donations to the mission for the outstanding work that they are doing.

He is an atheist who does not believe in himself. The old religions said that he was an atheist who did not believe in God. The new religion says that he is an atheist who does not believe in himself.

Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin — to say that you are weak, or others are weak.

Whatever you think, that you will be. If you think yourselves weak, weak you will be. If you think yourselves strong, strong you will be.

Be free; hope for nothing from anyone. I am sure if you look back upon your lives you will find that you were always vainly trying to get help from others which never came. All the help that has come was from within yourselves.

Never say, ‘No’, never say, ‘I cannot’, for you are infinite. Even time and space are as nothing compared with your nature. You can do anything and everything, you are almighty.

The remedy for weakness is not brooding over weakness, but thinking of strength. Teach men of the strength that is already within them.

To succeed, you must have tremendous perseverance, tremendous will. ‘I will drink the ocean’, says the persevering soul; ‘at my will mountains will crumble up’. Have that sort of energy, that sort of will; work hard, and you will reach the goal.

Let people say whatever they like, stick to your own convictions, and rest assured, the world will be at your feet. They say, ‘Have faith in this fellow or that fellow’, but I say, ‘Have faith in yourself first’, that’s the way. Have faith in yourself — all power is in you — be conscious and bring it out. Say, ‘I can do everything.’ ‘Even the poison of a snake is powerless if you can firmly deny it.’

Stand up and fight! Not one step back, that is the idea. Fight it out, whatever comes. Let the stars move from the spheres! Let the whole world stand against us! Death means only a change of garment. What of it? Thus fight! You gain nothing by becoming cowards. Taking a step backward, you do not avoid any misfortune. You have cried to all the gods in the world. Has misery ceased? … The gods come to help you when you have succeeded. So what is the use? Die game. … You are infinite, deathless, birthless. Because you are infinite spirit, it does not befit you to be a slave. Arise! Awake! Stand up and fight!

Take up one idea. Make that one idea our life — think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.

What Swami Vivekananda says is not fantasy. The same thing is written in Think and Grow RICH and in The MAGIC of thinking BIG.

Forget about Amway; forget about MLM scams; but all these things that these great MEN told were not false.

And you come up with NPD!! That is funny :))

You people don't know the business model at all and you went to court.

THE REAL BUSINESS MODEL OF AMWAY

I am telling you the facts so don't become jealous.

Can you elaborate on this

Rs.1080/- crores (4,50,000 x 2,000 x 12(months) ) per annum which would yield an astronomical profit and it cannot but be stated as

“easy/quick money” without any service to the distributors/members irrespective of whether they sell the products or not, though the

company may conveniently refer it as “turnover by sale of products”

specially the line "without any service to the distributors/members irrespective of whether they sell the products or not"

The statement "without any service" and "irrespective of whether they sell the products or not" is completely false in today existing

Amway business.

1) I don't have to sell the products. Amway license is Rs995 and it is I only who have to use the products for my own consumption. So it

is not that I am paying Rs2000 to Amway in advance and then selling them to someone else.

NO THAT IS NOT THE BUSINESS MODEL. YOU DONT HAVE TO BUY FROM AMWAY IN ADVANCE AND THEN SELL THEM TO PEOPLE. YOU ONLY HAVE TO BUY WHAT YOU HAVE TO USE. PEOPLE WHO IN GREED BUY PRODUCTS FROM AMWAY AND TRY TO SELL THEM LIKE SALESMAN ARE OBVIOUSLY NOT DOING CORRECT.

ALTHOUGH THERE IS NOTHING WRONG IN DOING SO BUT SINCE I EARLIER POINTED YOU THAT 90% PEOPLE CANNOT MARKET WHICH IS A FACT, AMWAY IBO GIVE STRICT INSTRUCTIONS TO NEW IBO NOT TO SELL PRODUCTS TO SOMEONE ELSE. BECAUSE MANY PEOPLE BUY PRODUCTS WORTH THOUSANDS OF RUPEES AND DONT USE THEMSELVES AND TRY TO SALE TO OTHER PEOPLE AND THAT IS WHERE THEY FAIL AND START CALLING THIS BUSINESS IS SCAM.

GREED IS A VERY BAD THING AND I AM NOT DOING THAT. I AM NOT SELLING PRODUCTS TO ANYBODY AND USING THEM MYSELF SO OBVIOUSLY HOW CAN I GO BANKRUPT OR LOOSE MONEY.

2) I am the user of my own product.

All statements from your side are false.

I have shown you my Amway account also; and when I paid I get products so the following statement is invalid for today existing Amway

business model "irrespective of whether they sell the products or not".

The products that I bought from Amway, I am the user to their is no question of selling the products. The sale has already been done and

I am using it.


Now tell me where is the problem with this business model?

1) Amway is directing selling to you and you are the consumer.

2) If some Amway IBO buys Rs 1 lakh worth of products; that is quite obvious he is not going to use for himself. He fails to market it

to other people and say I am stuck up with these products and all my money is gone

3) My all future downlines I am going to give this very strict instructions not to buy in big volumes just to increase turnover because

you will fail to sell this big volumes.

4) Let the business grow slowly; and buy products for your own use and that also whatever you need. It is not that you have to buy the

stock for the entire year. NO YOU DONT HAVE TO DO THAT.

Now I don't see any unethical in this. My uplines are not going door to door for selling Amway products. They are using themselves and

that is the BUSINESS MODEL that was started by Rich DeVos.

In this business model nobody is going to loose money.

In my tree we all are doing the same. I am at 0% level but not into any loss in buying Amway products because I have to use them for

myself and not do out door to door like a salesman and if I am unable to sale; I will cry I wasted my money. NO THAT IS NOT THE BUSINESS

MODEL.

Nikhil, Just go to the website of Amway India you would come across the good business opportunity to earn every month Rs. 62,500 if you recruit 102 persons under you under 6-4-3 plan. They claim that it is a good business opportunity and total financial freedom in 2-5 years. Now you say that it is not a business at all. Wow! what a transformation.

Shyam Sundar said...

It seems your understanding is very low. I have already told you I did not mention about Rs. 2000. It is the Andhra Pradesh High Court which stated it basing on the affidavit filed by Amway India. If you have any problem in understanding, just go through the full judgement of the High Court.

Nikhil Bhatia said...

It is a business but the business model has to be understood.

Nikhil Bhatia said...

Here is some simple mathematics to prove that profit does comes from the product flow itself.

I sponsor 650 people in my tree and all on average are using products worth Rs1000 per month. They are not selling them to anybody but buying products for themselves only. These products also include products from other brands like UCB, PUMA etc....

So total volume for the month becomes 6.5 lakh and out of that Amway can surely give me Rs40000 per month.

The sales of UCB and PUMA are also through Amway so these companies are also happy that the money which would have gone in marketing and distributing is now being given back to Amway IBO.

It's a simple calculation and you can do that with a pen and paper.

If at any time I found something wrong in Amway I would be happy to contact you. This is my free judgement and not as David says I am NPD.

60% of 6.5 lakh is 3.9 lakh and that is enough to distribute amongst IBO who are doing business.

IBO who are at 0% they are not in loss since they get products from Amway which also includes top most brands. Once these IBO also starts making tree they will also start getting money back.

If you sponsor six legs and each is doing 6.5 lakh then total turnover for month is around Rs39lakh and if this remains for six months then you do diamond and total sales of Rs234 lakh. Out of this 60% money is Rs140 lakh and average income of diamond is around Rs40 lakh per annum as mentioned by Amway in its business kit. Rs 100 lakh are still there which would be distributed between downlines.

By simple calculation you can see that there is a lot of money that exists between the factory and when the product reaches the customer.
Since we are MLM now so this 60% is given back to you once you start increasing your tree. If you dont increase your tree you only get 20% discount.

Diamond salaries are because of product flow and not money spent in tools. Do you mean to say money spent in tools and meetings for a person who has gone diamond is Rs234 lakh in 6 months. That is not the case.

I just started the business; let me do it for sometime and check it. I hope that helps.

Go ahead and find for yourself. Best of luck.
