If it’s too good to be true, it probably isn’t!

This is a favorite picture.  It certainly makes a claim without stating anything.  Use this product and your appearance will change from reality (or your not so great self-image) to your wanna-be.  Of course, what do you have to do to get there?

Lots of products make this claim with a little tiny disclaimer like, “when used as directed,” along with “results are not typical.”

That is much like pharmaceutical claims we hear on television for new drugs that claim to clear up your skin.  However their disclaimers may be words like “some improvement is typical in a few weeks,” used within the commercial.  The frightening part is the claim made at the end.  “In some rare cases, side effects include paralysis, liver damage, or even death.”

For my part, I have been attracted to network marketing companies, their products, and their people for well over 20 years.  I have tried many health products especially those that made claims that it would be easier to lose weight while using their product.

Many other people are attracted to these same types of products, are you?  We can observe that is simply true, or else there just would not be so many of them, each claiming to have just the discovery that will REALLY work.  Look at the television advertising that promotes buying your food delivered in portion size servings.   They spend so much on the advertising, what could they possibly put into those boxes?    I know people who have tried this, but I never have.  We simply have too much food stored in our house.  I would be unable to eat ONLY what came in those boxes.  I might also be unable to refrain from eating both today’s portion and tomorrow’s.  That assumes that it would actually taste delicious, which they say it does.

I am not tempted there.

To your massive success,

Louise

About the Author:

My parents grew up during "the great depression." I was shaped by that kind of limited belief. Now my life is spent imagining and creating the possibilities instead of feeling cramped into a mold predestined for me by someone else. I feel free. I am a child of God's creation, a wife, mother, and grandmother. Besides that I am much more. I am having the best time of my life! I am enjoying many blessings and working so that others may be blessed as well! I live in the east coast U.S. now in the gorgeous part of Virginia we call the Shenandoah Valley. I am a retired mathematics teacher and my husband and I have Leonberger dogs. My husband is a hard worker and he is detailed and meticulous in his work. Work is his love gift. He is quiet mostly, but has an amazing mind and is so funny. After all these years, I still love him so much. I, on the other hand, am easily distracted and do mostly what seems like a lot of fun to me. I enjoy people, and great ideas, and enjoy listening to wonderful conversations. I like the way words go together and the feelings they cause. I am thrilled with humorous stories and fascinated by the way the pieces of life fit together. I enjoy the fields of advertising and sales. I love to travel, and I treasure the special bond between mankind and canines.
