I was wondering when someone was going to plug this guy here.
Join his Million Dollar Experiment… I did. The power of “intention” comes from a book called “The Secret”.
I still watch it from time to time. Not that I’m a new-age believer or anything, but it’s very interesting and keeps me in good spirits when I feel down.
The problem with The Secret is that it warps the intention manifestation method (which was really ‘presented’ or popularized by Napoleon Hill) into a cross between delusional greed and mysticism, which is never what was intended.
It’s also effectively a marketing gimmick, trying to make something ‘special’ out of it and failing to explain what many people who’ve discussed the intention manifestation recognize: it’s essentially a way of talking people into focusing.
The problem with Steve Pavlina is that he says he makes $30g a month off his blog (yeah, maybe if you divide it by 3) and he has a fat wife who’s convinced she’s a psychic who can talk to dead people or see into the future or some crazy shit.
