*Consumer Comment: Should have came here first
The 55 page booklet was more of the exact same thing as the letter, testimonial stories about how "the book" had changed their lives dramatically from just touching the thing, or just reading it. This booklet was supposed to contain the secrets. This booklet came with an offer to buy "the book" for $139. I had the extra cash and was still curious, so I bought "the book". I knew it wouldn't make me rich and I don't believe in secret societies or two tiers of existence - those in control and the huddled masses. But I wanted to see what they were trying to pull, being the student of internet marketing that I am.
I started reading it and it's also got more of the same B.S. as the previous letters and booklet.
Then the book launches into a time management practice that supposedly allows you to get so much more done than anyone else. Well, of course, good time management and consolidating tasks that are related into one period of time accomplishes more than if you make a phone call, write a letter, then make another phone call, then run an errand, come back, run another errand later, etc. It also says that using this system is less stressful because you are in control of everything around you. The system is supposed to automatically instill self-discipline in you, too. Total bull.
You're either self-disciplined or you're not. You either have a good work ethic or you don't. You either make the time in your life to better it or you don't. You're either self-motivated or you're not. Nobody's system can change self-motivation. That has to come from within a person.
There's also no reality in this guy's life. He seems to be completely uninterrupted by phone calls from the wife, sick kids, home crises, business fires that must be dealt with immediately, and not conveniently on his "mini-day schedule". He doesn't seem to have any parenting or family responsibilities, like taking out the garbage, doing the laundry, cleaning the bathroom, cooking or cutting the grass, to name a few things that have to get done. He doesn't eat dinner at home all week, so if he has a family, he's not there for them. All this guy seems to be after is how to work harder and faster 7 days a week to make more money. Like money is the key to happiness (it's not, it just solves financial problems that can make us miserable, but for many people more money doesn't actually solve anything, it just makes the problems bigger).
Most moms would be running circles around this guy and his "system", BTW.
All it is is a recipe for overwork and over-scheduling. He supposedly gets so much more done because of his "mini-day" schedule than anyone can do using any worthwhile time management system. This guy works 60-80 hours a week. Most people who work 60-80 hours a week get ahead. Duh... They also usually end up divorced.
The whole book, IMHO, is devoid of spirituality, family, and honesty in favor of total self-control, amotionality (devoid of emotions), trying to control others to fit your needs, and doing everything for the sake of the almightly dollar. The guy obviously never studied quantum physics or he'd have a lot more respect for a higher power and what reality actually is.
The whole "integrated thinking" thing is what most of us call setting goals for the future and then planning out the steps to make those goals realities. Anyone who takes the time and effort to sit down and write out their goals and how they are going to get there will achieve their goals. That is if they actually take the steps they know are necessary to achieve them. That's where most people fail. They know what they have to do, they just aren't sufficiently self-motivated to do it.
If these people are so rich and powerful, why do they charge for the materials? They can't afford to bring in the "few" new members with all their grand wealth?
If they are so rich and powerful, why aren't they helping society become better like the real rich people out there who are actually giving to good causes and bettering the world? Answer: the secret society doesn't exist and there are no rich and powerful people in some tier above the rest of us.
The guy did study marketing very well, however. What he is using here is a "gray-hat" tactic. That means it's legal but way far away from being morally right. He's not technically ripping you off because you do get a product for your money. But it's a dishonest appeal to your ego to get you to consent to parting with your hard-earned cash.
In the first letter everything is supposed to be free to the chosen ones. Then you have to pay for the first book. Then you get more letters telling you there are more books and a fee to access the meetings. You are told you have to pay for two more books and agree to pay for meetings. What happened to free??? I'm speculating here, but the future books probably contain the same information most people already know by common sense or a high school education. Meetings are held on the internet, so you don't actually meet anyone. All the people at the meeting could be one person on a server pretending to be a lot of people.
I'm not parting with anymore of my money out of curiosity. It's been well satisfied that this stuff is a rip-off and pulls on people's egos and desperation to make a buck for the seller.
You do get something for your money, but it certainly isn't what is promised: effortless health, wealth beyond your wildest dreams, and a seat high above "the masses".
Don't waste you money or time on this bunk.
