Two women were playing golf. One teed off and watched with horror as her ball headed directly towards a foursome of men playing the next hole.
The ball hit one of them and he immediately fell to the ground clutching his hands together in his groin, and rolled around in obvious agony.
The woman rushed over and immediately began to apologize "Please allow me tohelp, I'm a Physical Therapist and I know I could relieve your pain if you'll allow me" she told him.
"Oh no I'll be alright, I'll be fine in a few minutes" the man replied, still lying in the fetal position, still clasping his hands together at his groin.
At her persistance, however, he finally allowed her to help.
She gently took his hands away and laid them at his sides, she loosened his trousers and put her hand inside. She administered tender and skillful massage for several long moments and then asked "How does that feel?"
He replied "It feels fabulous, but my thumb still hurts like hell"
Use this story when you want to tell people sometime they do not know what or where the problem is. For example, during your opp presentation. Some in your audience may not know why they are poor or have no money. Problem is probably because they do not own their own business but the spend time complaining and blaming other things. The Government, price of gas, economy etc.
Many leaders also do not know why they are not making money in the MLM companies they are involved in even though they have worked very hard and have built a great organization or after they have built their organization, it collapse. I guarantee you the problem lies is the company or the marketing plan. Not the thumb.
This is one of my favourite story when I talk on "Anaylysing Marketing Plans" or "How To Choose An MLM Company" Eddy Chai.
