Thanks for the message Randy. You have no idea how much I needed to hear this. I watched the recording, and I had to pause it several times to journal things that were unfolding for me. I've heard you talk about money and riches before, but the more toned down neutral-centric message resonates better with me. Thank you so so much! You're a blessing and keep rocking the world!
Took an awesome nugget with me too, "God, I'll meet ya at the mike". Well that can be applied to anything we are trying to control actually. Like, "God I'll meet ya at the keyboard" for example. And btw, you're cuter than Joel Osteen ;)
Awesome Randy. Will be tuning in (good excuse for missing church this Sunday ;) and hopefully one day you can guest at my local unity in Austin :)
Romney is a phoney and very uncomfortable about how he made his wealth, it seems. That is what people are attacking, not wealth in general. Isn't this the guy that recently said people should talk about income inequality in "quiet rooms"? Seriously? I mean, we can't make up this shit. I thought I was hearing an alien talk. So disconnected from the very people he claims to want to help.
Randy, it's not always about programming my friend, sometimes it's just looking at a person that claims to want to go out there to make rules that affect everybody's money and scrutinizing how they made theirs. So journalists use phrases that are designed to elicit emotion. People aren't entirely dumb as you want to cast them, but then again you have to tell people that they are dumb in order for them to listen to you. It's the way of marketing gurus.
There's nothing wrong with the language in the article. You also use such emotionally triggering language Randy. Pot, kettle......

Morality is too closely linked to religion for my comfort. I prefer not to think of things in terms of morals but in terms of my overall connection and oneness to the universe. I can pat myself on the back for never having cheated on my partner but if I treat him like shit otherwise, I'm only kidding myself.

Rod B Rod, the problem is that by the time the free market decides (that is a person realizes they are no better off, results-wise, long term, for having attended a seminar), a few new suckers have already been born, lol. I love the free market, I want Randy and other PD gurus to make oodles of money teaching people how to get rich. But don't do it in a manipulative way then act as if some type of manipulation is better than another, ie political manipulation is somehow evil while PD/Spritual manipulation is more enlightened. Or something.
Sure people must take personal responsibility for themselves and own their own choices. But the fact is that PD gurus are incredibly powerful in persuading gullible people to spend tons of money for a weekend high touted as a "life changing" event. But really the only lives that are changed are those of the said guru in the form of a fatter bank account. Just look at the poor fools that shelled 10K to attend a death camp with James Ray....who gets convinced to part with 10K to attend a supposed wealth seminar? Really? I'd wager that anyone that has 10K laying around isn't stupid enough to give it to someone to teach them how to get wealthy. Duh.
In any case, I love Randy and he's electrifying and no doubt authentic. It'd be nice to see a guru that actually takes responsibility and puts people before money.

Rod BAnnieb The problem is that the PD crowd is full of gullible people who think going to seminars will give them "the secret" to getting rich. This is how it's marketed to them, and they eat it up.
Seminar addicts abound - people who go and keep going back for feel good high from the the hots that Randy and all the others are so talented at unleashing. I don't think there's anything wrong with that per se. Nobody is forced to pay money to get get rich advice. If you have to charge your credit card, every time, to attend a feel good seminar 3-4 times a year (yes, I know people like that) maybe your teacher hasn't made a good job of communicating that you're actually better off staying home and not racking up more debt. People have to somehow spend their unearned money, right?
Why do people think they have to pay big bucks to get this info anyway? Randy has been saying for years that "As A Man Thinketh" is the book that changed his life. It's a free download on the internet. It's written in English, the language Randy conducts seminars in. Highly priced PD seminars are for suckers. But then there's an abundance of those.
After the 08 election I was so saturated with political gibberish I needed a cleanse. So I'm glad I got rid of my TV this time around. Get rid of your TV guys and gals. Believe me, you'll still know everything that's going on. I do. But I'm more in control of how it is delivered to me. Who can watch all those negative commercials in between programming and still feel good? Yikes.
