Top 17 Amway Quotes Of All Time

In this post, I will share what I believe are the top 17 Amway quotes of all time.

When a person mentions multilevel marketing, one of the first words that comes to mind is Amway. Amway is one of the oldest network marketing companies. This company has set a huge precedence on how other MLM Companies operate.

While I am not affiliated with Amway, I, along with many of my family and friends have used Amway products in the past. They sell quality products and many Amway distributors have built very successful businesses.

Top 17 Amway Quotes of All Time

Looking through many archives and from my online research, I am going to give you the top 17 Amway quotes of all time, as I see it. Each quote is in bold and italics. After each quote I will share my own two cents on it.

It’s hard to rank these quotes in order. They’re all inspirational. Let’s take a look at these top 17 Amway quotes. These quotes are from a variety of people… Distributors, leaders, founders and more.

 # 1: It is impossible to win the race unless you venture to run, impossible to win the victory unless you dare to battle. ~ Richard DeVos

To succeed in life, you have to be willing to take chances and step outside of your comfort zone. The greater the risk the greater the reward.

# 2: Amway gets people into a new life of excitement, promise, profit and hope. ~ Jay Van Andel

Jay is the other founder of Amway. He tells us here how people can find a new sense of being when they choose to build an Amway business.  Amway gives people hope of a better future. Many people in life are stuck in a rut, with no hopes of a better future. Amway ultimately is in the hope business.

# 3: I believe the Amway business is the best business opportunity that has ever existed in the free world. ~ Bill Britt

Bill was a top leader in Amway. He passed away a few years back, but his legacy lives on. He explains how a person can use Amway as a means to build a business dynasty with very little investment except desire and action.

# 4: If you wait until you know everything, you’ll never know anything ~ Richard DeVos

Amway entrepreneurs have learned from their founder that the key to a successful is to just get started and learn as you go. Do not get caught up with analysis by paralysis. If you wait until you are an expert and know everything you will never get started.

# 5: There are a lot of great ideas and if we allow the negative influences of others to stop us, then we will never accomplish anything. The truth is, most people are always ‘waiting to begin,’ but few ever actually get on the pathway to success. ~ Terry Felber

Don’t let negative people bring you down. Don’t be scared to fail. Just get started, make a ton of mistakes, learn from them and keep moving forward!

# 6: Now the Amway business is built on Christian principles, and therefore it’s built on God’s laws, because a Christian is going to live God’s laws. ~ Dave Severn

Dave and his wife Jan are Amway Executive Diamonds from Idaho. I put this quote here because too many people try to say that Amway has become a religion. I disagree… It is a business and many of the Amway distributors follow their religious principles in their business.

# 7: Leaders aren’t born, they’re developed Bill Britt

If you want to attract leaders, you must first become a leader. This business is ultimately a leadership business. Reps and customers come and go like the common cold, but leaders are who build a big business. Our job is to find and develop leaders in order to multiply our team.

# 8: I’m proud that Jay and I, from the beginning, focused our efforts on helping people and giving them an opportunity. That continues to be the secret of Amway’s international success today. Richard DeVos

What Richard said here is the basis for success. If we are focused on helping others, we will help ourselves in the process. The more people you serve and help, the more money you will make.

# 9: A man must do whatever he can to provide for his family Terry Felber

It’s a man’s responsibility to provide for his family. Amway offers men (and women) the opportunity to provide more for their families. It offers them an opportunity to earn back their time, so they can become financially free and live the life they want and deserve.

# 10: He [an Amway distributor] owns his own business. It’s part of the estate that he’ll pass on to his children. It includes a network of thousands that produces an income whether he’s dead or alive. That drives his motivation to succeed.Richard DeVos in Success Magazine

Just like a traditional business, Amway distributors can and do build huge business structures that are something they can leave their heirs when they have passed on. Their business is a willable asset. In fact, there are now many second and third generation Amway reps running businesses that their parents or grandparents built.

# 11: Mistakes aren’t the end, they are the beginning. Bill Britt

In life, in your Amway business, in any MLM Business or traditional business, we will make mistakes. Our job is to learn from our mistakes and fail our way to success. If you learn from it, it’s not a failure.

# 12: What is popular is not always right, and what is right is not always popular.” I’ve tried to do what is right regardless of critics. Richard DeVos

Whenever you step out of your comfort zone and do something significant, you will have plenty of critics. Let those critics be your source of inspiration, not a reason to quit. As long as what you are doing is legal, ethical and moral, it doesn’t matter what others think about it.

# 13: Don’t ever let anyone steal your dreams. Dexter Yager

Dexter and his wife Birdie built an outstanding Amway business. It started as a dream and they followed the rainbow to the pot of gold. The bottom line is don’t let someone who has given up on their own dreams talk you out of pursuing yours.

# 14: Pigs don’t know pigs stink. ~ Dave Severn

The power of association is very important. If you compare yourself to broke, unhappy people, you might be doing pretty good. Hang around people who uplift you, encourage you and bring out the best in you. Make sure your sphere of influence adds value to your life!

# 15: Show the plan, share the dream. ~ Anonymous

Draw the circles and share the Amway business opportunity and products with everyone you can. This business is a numbers game. While you share the business with others, show people how this business can help the person you are talking with get what they want! If you can do that effectively, you will sponsor a lot of people.

# 16: It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog that matters. ~ Bill Britt

It’s what is on the inside that counts. You can never look at a person from the outside in and know whether or not they will be successful in the business. It’s the desire in their heart that matters most. Don’t pre-judge people. Share it with everyone and let them decide for themselves.

# 17: Some will, some won’t, so what. Next.  ~ Unknown

Make a lot of exposures and work with the willing. Don’t worry about the people who say no. Focus on the people who say yes and help them. Also, keep a list of everyone you ever talk to about the business or products and make sure you stay in touch with them every 90 to 120-days until they buy or die.

Final Thoughts
