I saw this video below about get rich quick gurus, and immediately thought of my experiences with them. It is a grey area, as you wonder whether the gurus/coaches are successful because of their students or in spite of their students. I have been to seminars where such practices are done, to a point where I thought that it is standard practice. I went to one online seminar recently, and the same practice was run.
Personally, I believe that every seminar/training that involves making money, should have a big sign that says ‘Buyer Beware’ 😀 There is no guarantee that you will succeed. Always, always do your due diligence. Especially, with these desperate times, there will always be con opportunities.
A few keywords that should be warning bells with these gurus. ‘Easy’, ‘Money making’ and ‘Millionaire opportunity’ are some of them. Think about it, whatever it is, short of marrying a very-very wealthy spouse, making good money is not easy 🙂
One of the books I really recommend people to read, especially to improve themselves, is Atomic Habits by James Clear. I found the book about two years ago, just before the pandemic. It is actually the compilation of his few years of writings at his own blog, Jamesclear.com.
It will take a lot to talk about what the book is all about, but the video below does a good job of explaining the essence of the book.
It has been useful to me. One of the things that I follow from the book, is the ‘Don’t break the chain’ idea as espoused by Jerry Seinfeld as explained in the book and video above. 🙂 That is why I post content almost everyday.
