my mother is heavily into this sort of self help stuff and despite what she thinks i keep an open mind to it. i have seen this movie and it isn’t bad, but it is overhyped.
no matter how good the message is i’m yet to find someone who actually improves there life through self help books and movies. it seems you have to make these “realisations” by yourself for it to actually work.
What The Bleep Do We Know is a great movie. You know, except for the factual errors and JZ Knight.
This looks like more overly contrived pseudo-psychological life affirming self help bullshit. Dale Carnegie did it best years ago with How to Win Friends and Influence people, and even the “best” wasn’t very good.
No offense to you, Nate, but this shit is all too prevalent, and the only people that will view it are non-starters, who will never do anything regardless of an external motivation or people who are vaguely interested by it. No one who will actually make change in their life spends hours and hours on stupid shit like this, because they’re busy making change and they don’t need it.
Sales copy like that truly is annoying in my opinion, as well. Unfortunately it shuts off a lot of people.
It’s called ‘the secret’ to create a buzz and hype. Understandable. They want to sell copies.
Regardless, I enjoyed the movie and thought I’d share. A lot of the content made sense to ME and MY situation, and I wanted to expose other people.
I’m not a hippie or psuedo-intellectual; I’m not a harnessing my chi or balancing my chakras; I’m not one to ‘fall’ for ‘trash’ (for those who haven’t even watched the movie and are basing their opinons solely on the ad copy).
…but I am up for learning something new from any given source. Approach with a wary eye, a sense of reality, and maybe a little bit of curiosity, and you can see how much you can extract from any fucking source.
Anyway, thanks for the comments. I appreciate the feedback.
