We continue our series on MLM tales. As we know not from today, sometimes wisdom and universal truths cannot be effectively taught by practice, or life experience. Sometimes the most accurate truths are hidden under the coat of a simple story. Who does not remember how in the winter evenings we were listening intently to the voice of our grandmother and grandfather, who deign us improbable stories about a young princess, fern flowers, or the girl with the matches? How many messages emerging from the stories which we remember till today? Let us take a break and take you to magic world of fairy tales. They can sneak morals through our thick skin, cynicism and bias, and take them to the place where the morals should be found. Today, three lions will roar for you.
The three lions
In one zoo, in one cage lived two lions – the father and the son. They were born there, so they did not know anything about life outside the zoo. As the old lion was an authority for his son, once a little one said: “Dad, what is our life?”
“You see, son, we get up in the morning, get breakfast, then lunch and dinner. We have to walk a couple of times and roar from the cage to be known as lions. This is what our live is.”, answered the old lion.
Little lion thought, therefore, that all the lions operate in the same way. But one day lion captured in the African jungle was brought to the zoo. He was terrified of living in a cage. That it is so dull and gloomy. A young lion could not understand the behavior of his elder colleague, and one time, because of his curiosity, he asked: “Why are you so nervous and depressed? After all, you get breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You do not have to do anything, just a couple of times to go to the cage and roar. This is your role”.
The new lion with gloomy face said: “But this is not life. In life, the idea is to be free. You eat when you want – when you hunt something, not when you are given food. Your territory is not limited to the cage; you do not have to live in captivity. You can travel to the new areas – explore the world, do what you want. This is kind of life I want, I want to be king of the jungle again. That is what I was born for – not to live in a cage.”
Young lion did not understand what his friend was saying, because he has never lived in the wild jungle. He was not able to compare these two worlds.
This story, in particular the attitude of the lions that lived from birth in the zoo, is an allegory of people who do not know the MLM industry. Everyone who does not know network marketing companies, their mode of action and the opportunities they offer – is living as in a cage, with no idea what freedom is. Three meals which lions received are strikingly similar to the payment that the average person receives for his roaring. However, life is not about being in captivity, but to use what the environment offers to us. Every man must choose whether he wants to be king of the jungle or he prefers to stay in his cage.
