“Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.” – Tony Robbins This probably won’t come as much of a surprise to you, but I’m not a big fan of fake gurus. Fake gurus are an especially devious subset of fraudsters who prey on the most vulnerable among us. Highly motivational and deeply charismatic, they essentially promise the realization of your dreams (spiritual salvation, untold riches, all-you-can-eat poultry feed, etc.) in exchange for some money. The offer goes like this: buy my book/coaching service/online course and/or donate to my “prosperity church” and I’ll solve all your problems.
