  1. I admit it… I am SICKENED that even though there are what seems like 1,000 times more people that have been positively impacted by the teachings from LIFE, TEAM, Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady and other fine men and women in their organizations than those that didn’t… Yet there are 100?s of comments on these critics websites (yup 100′s of comments by just A FEW people) attacking something they don’t necessarily know much about.

    It’s absolutely OK to disagree on issues, perspectives and what not… but gossip based on hearsay and rumors for the thrill of feeling better about oneself by putting others down?? That’s a total waste of time and energy

    The Internet is an open forum for all to share their perspectives.

    Please do YOUR part.

    If YOU or someone you know have been positively impacted by LIFE, TEAM, Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady and their organizations, books or audios… PLEASE share your personal experiences here by leaving a comment.

    If YOU have been negatively impacted by LIFE, TEAM, Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady and their organizations, books or audios, share that here as well so they may improve.

  2. Asking me what I think about critics is like asking a lamp-post what it feels about dogs.
    These people on the TEAM are beyond reproach. Their hearts are in the right place. Critics don’t count. They are irrelevant.

  3. I love what Chris and Orrin have started with LIFE. I have been impacted by what they teach greatly. First and most important is my relationship with Christ. It was at my first Team major over a decade ago that I heard Tim Marks talk about his relationship with Jesus, that influenced me to see who this Savior was and has forever impacted my life, thank you Team and Tim Marks. Also I grew up in a very broken and disturbed home, the things I was learning at Team events were unreal in my mind and so breathtaking. I was exposed to real truths of life-character, honesty, faith, integrity and the list can continue to go on from there. The launching of LIFE and now the MFC is what I believe the greatest business for ourselves, our communites and our country. I am personally watching so many people grow and develop right in front of my eyes. I really believe that to have real lasting change it starts in an individuals heart, not in an election. And I really believe that the hearts of men and women are truly being touched, and real change is happening through this organization. I look forward to what the future holds for LIFE and those involved with it.
    God Bless,

  4. I have admired Orrin for nearly 10 years now since I first heard him speak near my home. I have been fortunate to a small part of his organization for the last couple years. If I gained nothing but the life changing wisdom this man not only imparts but lives, my investment would be well worth it. In today’s world not everyone walks his talk or puts his money where his mouth is but Orrin is a man of character and conviction and he does both. I can honestly say I am a better person today than I was even a year ago because of my affliation with his company. and those around me would support that assessment. I wasn’t exactly on the the street before. I’m a single mom who has raised to college educated young women who are employed and doing well. I worked in education for over 30 years and rose in ranks because of what I learned from Orrin from a counselor to the State DOE as part of a leadership team in professional development for teachers and administrators. With most things in life you get out of them what you invest in them. I can’t thank Orrin and his team enough for what they are doing. I do believe that a small group of committed people can change the world.

  5. I admire and respect Orrin Woodward for everything he has done and for what he stands for. He is an amazing example of what not quitting when times get tough truly is, for leading from the front, for standing up for what he believes in, for helping people see that they have it inside them they can do the same. Thanks Orrin for all you do!!! Its appreciated!!

  6. Since joining the LIFE Team community I have been reading great books, listening to amazing talks on developing leadership and life skills, and associating with winners. This has not only changed my outlook on life but also my marriage. My wife and I had a very strained relationship prior to joining LIFE. I was an impatient and explosive kind of guy but because I have applied some principles taught in the LIFE program I am so much better at communicating with my wife and can now control my temper. How can you put a price on that?!

  7. I’ve had the privilege of being around TEAM for quite a while now. The one-on-one time that I’ve had with Tim Marks, Jim Martin, and Tim Jarvinen among others has allowed me to see these men and their families in normal, every-day life. Those experiences made my respect skyrocket for what LIFE and TEAM teaches. The policy council and round table members are a group of people that practice what they teach. My time in team has reversed the trends to the positive in my finances, has taught me how to be a better husband, son, and friend, and most importantly, I came to faith in Christ – not because someone in the team told me to, but because the men I mentioned earlier live a Christian life and it is apparent in the way that they and their families act. The fruit of their character was everywhere. It was refreshing to see Christians that actually tried their best to act like the person they’re following. I’m forever grateful for what LIFE and TEAM have done in my life.

  8. Hey Tim – Thanks for sharing. Like your sense humor although I do feel educated dissent is constructive, but then again, what is considered “educated dissent” is very subjective…

  9. I cant wait to see more visual representations to see the successful way of thinking more clearly! I am all right brained, and an artist. I love seeing videos/pictures and long detailed explanations “to see their way of thinking” it’s going to be fun and I would value and love to see this. In depth: successful thinking – how to see it their way! :D

  10. I’ve been with Team for about 4 yrs now. My marriage is better, actually may not even be married if it weren’t for the info provided & packaged by Team. In fact we’ll be celebrating 30 yrs in July. My view of finances has changed, have direction in my life, I think more of others first, we’ve gotten back to God & church, have way more friends who we can count on no matter what, focus on the important things more & less on the urgent, seeing the growth in others in a positive direction & these are just scratching the surface. And to think there is an income attached to all this, unbelieveable!

    Make it a Great Day!!!

  11. I have gained so much through the past few years of being associated with Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady and the rest of the Policy Council, that I do not know where to start! I have a much better understanding of money matters, history, politics, communication, parenting, marriage, freedoms, conflict resolution, education, and legacy, just to name a few!

    My self-esteem has come up, my confidence has come up and I feel like I am in charge of my life and my destiny for the first time ever!

    The most valuable gift I have received is that I have found my God given purpose, through finding God again! This gift is priceless!

    Thank you to Orrin for pressing on when most would have given up! You give an awesome example of a servant leader!

  12. Orrin,
    Thank you so much for your wonderful books, “Resolved: 13 Resolutions for Life” and “The Business of Life”. I especially enjoyed the chapter in “Resolved”, “Programming the Elephant”. I also enjoyed your presentation in Milwaukee. I attended with my friends Liz and Tom Morris. You and the others in Team motivate me and inspire me to be a better person. If you recall, I gave you about four of my professional development recordings. I asked you to listen to them to see if they were acceptable to be a part of your Life Team offerings of books and other self-help materials. Since then, I have improved them significantly. I anxiously await your response. I have also written a book entitled “Achieve Success in Spite of Stress”, a hands-on guide providing high achievers with the tools to balance career and personal life, learn effective time/stress management, recognize what’s holding them back, and discover the keys to success. I’d love to send you a free copy to review for the same purpose. My vision and mission as a leadership trainer/coach is to help people do what they love to do, more quickly and easily. I believe your Life mission is the same. I would love to join your movement. Please contact me via my email address to discuss how we can help each other further our mutual visions. Thank you!
