Doors of Opportunity
IBLP's year in review is up.

Daily Success! has 3,500 subscribers. At $49 a pop, my non-public school education says they're pulling in $171,500. Not too shabby...

As usual they seem to forget all the hard people at work in Taiwan. They start something and then forget about it and the people working for them.

Same thing happened when I went to Russia. People who called HQ enquiring about MTC were asked to "consider" whether God was in fact calling them to Romania. They needed to make a good first impression, etc., but hey, we only had five apprenty guys when I was first there.

(Which raises another interesting point - what exactly were we apprenticing to do? Usually the term implies building skills for a trade or business... I guess since character is king, what other skills could we want?)

Need help while watching your Year in Review?

During these twenty minutes perform Seven Mighty Deeds to Conquer Despair and Bitterness!

To do these mighty deeds:
Download the required video(s). Gather at least three more X-ers in preferably a co-ed mix. Select your non-optional alcoholic beverages of choice and perform the following Mighty Deeds as indicated!

1. Every time the word "Opportunity" is said, take a drink.
2. Every time Bill is called "Dr. Gothard" take two drinks.
3. For every unbelievable statement drain your glass and shout "Whatever!"
4. For every attractive blonde put on the video, blow a kiss and take a swig.
5. For every ugly brunette, take a drink THEN blow a kiss - after all, if they won't kiss till marriage, it might be the only one they get!
6. For every video shot that has been shot to make the room look full, take a drink.
7. For every coordinator, manager, director or leader with acne drain your glass!

Note: You should feel very mighty by the end of each year in review. If you are really committed to being mighty, you can have consequences for those who show weakness and rewards for those who demonstrate their evident spirituality. For example, the first one to pass out has to volunteer at Indy for a year. Last one standing gets to do some PG-13 handholding with their significant other.* After all, if they can do these mighty deeds, they can obviously handle the temptations that arise from some physical contact.

Good Luck!

Rich

*If they don't have a significant other, they can just hold hands with the "first one down" because where they're going, they'll be grateful for some attention.

Where are you getting your information? There is NO COST to enroll in the Daily Success Program. The number 49 that you are seeing is not the price, it's the amount of weeks the programs runs for.
