"But these same wonderful things can be used for self-serving ends by blaming others for not taking action, for not thinking positively enough."

There's a fine line between helping people see that they were never really all in and that may have hampered their success, and blaming them for not being positive enough.

Non-Guru: "I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have moved either way. It would have been nice for you to tell me that the mountain really didn't need to be moved."

How dare you for critcizing Robbins! Don't you know he's beyond reproach?

Er...wait a second. That's not what I meant to say. I took my anti-brainwash pills too early today.

What I like most about this post, as opposed to some of the others, is how you end it. Of course, that probably doesn't surprise you. Honestly, without the conclusion, it would have been much weaker - not because you didn't make valid points, but because your conclusion tempered those points away from hyperbole and simplistic examples.

So, thank you for that.
