What’s In An Acronym? The Changing Meaning Behind LIFE

March 8, 2012

When LIFE initially launched back in November, 2011, the acronym stood for “Living Intentionally For Excellence.” Lately, I’ve been seeing more references that LIFE stands for “Leadership Is For Everyone.”

So which is it? Living Intentionally For Excellence? Leadership Is For Everyone? One or the other, depending on the time of day?

Orrin and company do know that there’s already a separate company using this same acronym and tagline, right? They wouldn’t want to cause any confusion now, would they?

I suppose if TEAM is changing the acronym for LIFE, critics can change it too! We all know that if you take the 8F’s out of LIFE, you get a LIE. I have heard or read the following:

  • Living Intentionally For Extortion
  • Losing Income Forever (and) Ever
  • Living In Fear Everyday
  • Low Income For Everyone
  • LIFE Isn’t For Everyone
  • LIFE Is (a) Foolish Endeavor
  • Lying In Front (of) Everyone

Readers, what other acronyms for LIFE can you provide?

    BTW, I’ve also noticed another good reason for changing the name from TEAM to LIFE…There’s no ‘I’ in TEAM, but there IS an ‘I’ in LIFE 🙂

    ABSOLUTELY Chris! Too bad the “leaders” of lief don’t practice what they preach. Just read all the stories on this site and make a decision based on those facts. Are they hypocrites or are they honest?

    Leading into A fake existence

    Just curious as to why you dedicate so many hours to complaining? Do the readers know what fruit you have on the tree? Are you completely financially free, and have you also helped many with issues in life? Can you bring with you to a debate 100 people who will talk about all the things you have done to help their marriages get better, their finances improve, their leadership improve, etc.? How about 10? Please share your personal credibility to the readers. What else is it that you do for a living? What success do you have? How much time have you spent investigating from the inside as well as from the outside, although it appears your only outside experience is in creating a blog for people looking for a place to place blame on others? I have been successful in many endeavors and have yet to blame anyone else for my failures. The more I read the posts on this site the more it’s obvious you have a gripe site that doesn’t share truth. Honest skeptics take the time to check out the facts. Cynics don’t. I was an outsider looking in for a long time on the Team thing. Glad I did due diligence. I have see no one fail who actually does the work. I’ve watched personal friends get free from jobs now. I’ve watched many improve in many areas. What I have not seen yet: anyone else show me something that does better than this. Anyone else donate 100%of ALL profits on a best seller book to charity. Anyone else do that and ALSO create a charitable ministry that gives 98.5% of all donations away–no salaries paid out to anyone (AGO ministry). When the blog owner here or other cynics in this site accomplish the above please let everyone know.

    You have spoken like a true liefer. You are getting that rhetoric down..real good! Great job! No need to listen to cd’s we have you. 🙂 You have learned to repeat exactly what you have been told, without question. Almost all of what you say makes me chuckle 🙂

    I do disagree with you on much of your comments though, but then I don’t expect much from anonymous folk like you, who fail to see the obvious. Cognitive Dissonance?

    How bout that million views by this site owner? Has Orrin Woodward or any of their many, many mirrored blogs gotten a million views? They could have I really don’t know. By your judgement of success, would a million views for a blogger be some pretty amazing “success,” by your standards?That would seem to fall into your idea of “Success?” Would you consider that “fruit on the tree?”

    I don’t think you’d be interested in what I believe is my personal success, I know you wouldn’t relate. We have a total different view and you measure “success” quite differently than I do, so I won’t bother you with it. So I guess you will have to trust me or not that I am personally working on what I believe is success.

    Your comments have raised many great questions for me, as a matter of fact, to make it a bit simpler; I was wondering if you could answer your own questions you ask of everyone on here, only answer them of yourself… for all the readers. I am curious how you would answer all those questions you ask, by presenting them to yourself?

    When you do come back with your answers, please use your real and full name, so we can “verify” all your answers. Thanks.

    Because you might have already heard…”Trust but verify” and ” In God We Trust, all others must have data.” 🙂

    Looking forward to your answers.

    scaseytx – Our ‘personal gripe’ is more than just a gripe. Many of us are former major leaders in Team who had our lives, our incomes, our friendships and our familys affected in a very negative way by this organization. This is much more than just some petty grievance. In many cases, we feel this group destroyed finances, family’s and friendships in a very major and trematic manner.

    We are not just some group of people who registered, tried it for a month and quit. Many of us gave it night after night, 5-6 and even 7 nights a week for years, reached some of the absolute highest levels of recognition on Team, spoke on stage and the higher up we got, the more we learned which led us to believe that Team was full of much deception and that the majority of people in our groups were spending so much on tools & seminars that they were showing a net loss on their taxes year after year. As a result, we realized we could no longer be a part of such an evil organization. We also realized a responsibility to get the truth out and hopefully save some family the devastation that organization has caused to many of us.

    Just like Martin Luther King, we were fed up and wanted to do something about it.

    Amen. I would be happy to answer the questions scaseytx asks, (after he does, fair enough) but I don’t believe he really wants the answers. These guys who come on here are newbies and 99.9999% never come back.

    They all come on respond the way they are trained to and spew only what they have heard, They have bought into the “us vs them” and really are just trying to convince themselves.

    What a trap, they are repeatedly told not read, listen to or speak any negative; even if it is the truth. They don’t realize they have become a puppet on a string, they think what they are told is the gospel but will end up finding out differently.

    They will eventually have to face the same reality that hundreds of thousands do when the facts can no longer be denied in their lives. They are only doing the bidding for the TOP. Sad, so sad.

    “Just curious as to why you dedicate so many hours to complaining? Do the readers know what fruit you have on the tree? Are you completely financially free, and have you also helped many with issues in life?”

    Complaining?…..have you read this entire site?…didn’t think so. Maybe you should read up on guzzardo’s foreclosure in Arizona? What about the bankruptcies?…Gonna tell me that never happened? There’s some colorful fruit on the tree for ya. 🙂 Would those be facts or opinions? Does LIFE teach you the difference between the two? Obviously not. And yes, I have helped many with their issues in life….it just isn’t slithering my way into their living rooms trying to deceive them with lies and raping them of their credit card numbers.

    scaseytx says-
    “Can you bring with you to a debate 100 people who will talk about all the things you have done to help their marriages get better, their finances improve, their leadership improve, etc.? How about 10? Please share your personal credibility to the readers.”

    Seriously?…. You honestly think LIFE is qualified to make such ludicrous claims? Under what grounds? Please….to drag any individuals I may know to a fake debate like yours would be a complete waist of time, unless they’re up for an ass kissing session dedicated to orrin woodward.

    scaseytx says-
    “What else is it that you do for a living? What success do you have? How much time have you spent investigating from the inside as well as from the outside, although it appears your only outside experience is in creating a blog for people looking for a place to place blame on others?”

    Well lets see here….

    1. What I do for a living, certainly isn’t deceiving people to join Amway/Quixtar and on top of that telling them that Q is the “best business bar none”.

    2. What I do for a living, isn’t slithering my way into living rooms fronting a fruit punch that supposedly is this wonderful cancer curing aide along with numerous amounts of ridiculous/unlawful claims. Don’t believe me?….I saw a woman balling her eyes out because she actually thought mona vie was curing her heart disease.

    3. What I do for a living, certainly isn’t telling people that their job stands for “just over broke”.

    4. What I do for a living, certainly isn’t going around befriending people so they join my organization and later find out down the road that “ideas have consequences” and just drop them like a bad habit all because they know what’s going on and they won’t support the scam anymore.

    5. What I do for a living, certainly isn’t changing my name multiple times so the new people don’t find any negative truths on the google searches.

    And “success”… I’m guessing you don’t have any family of your own…do you? Or was your mind elsewhere when it comes time to “success”? Point being, Team of Destiny/Team/Team Mona Vie/Life/Life Training are hungry for something else…any guesses?

    scaseytx says-
    “The more I read the posts on this site the more it’s obvious you have a gripe site that doesn’t share truth.”

    Really? What little part of the truth did you miss here?

    scaseytx says-
    “I’ve watched personal friends get free from jobs now….”

    Free from a job and a slave to who?

    Should I go further in your ridiculous post?

    scaseytx- It is understandable that you missed my question. Since that is is the case I will type it again: What percentage of your downline TEAM is making profit?
