Amway/BWW justifications

If you have read my other posts, you know how professional Amway diamonds and IBOs are when it comes to telling lies. But in their minds, they always justify the lies they are telling as truths, and that too, very convincingly. You see, when you lie, your conscience is pricking you from the inside, so you try to justify to yourself and to others that you are actually not lying.

If you listen to Kumar and Anjali's diamond story, Kumar says he had to 'somehow' get people to functions. If the function is in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, which is 14 hours away from New Jersey (where Kumar and his prospect/downline live), then he would tell the function is "6 plus" hours away. Kumar justifies this by telling he is not lying and 14 is indeed "6 plus". Yes, 14 is "6 plus", but you see, that is the amount of truth in many statements made by Amway diamonds and IBOs.

When they quote the average incomes for Q12's they always quote like
Q12 platinums & above - $55,000/yr
So people think that an average Q12 platinum makes $55,000/yr. WRONG! They added all the Q12's and above, which means all emeralds, diamonds and above too, so there are a few people whose incomes are huge that will skew the average for Q12's higher!

Another example: a common 'prospecting' statement used by Amway IBOs to strangers is
"Hei, you look familiar. Have we met before?"
even though they know they never met this person before. Again their conscience is hurting when they lie that way. Amway diamond Vishal Jain justifies this nicely by telling
"Of course, I have seen human beings before. He has 2 eyes, 1 nose, 1 mouth, 2 ears, so he does look familiar. Every human being looks familiar to me."

These are just two examples, but many statements made by Amway/BWW guys are as truthful as the above.

The irony is that Amway IBOs think they are actually doing good to people by making them do anything for Amway/BWW, so they justify to themselves that lying to their prospects/downline is actually OK.
