This will be a short article about an issue which I feel needs to be written about.
Years ago, in my first professional job, I wrote an article in the company newsletter called “How to be a guru?”. It was well received internationally as many found something related to it.
There are abstract subjects that are transcendental, intangible and notional. Religion, Law of Attraction and many more subjects fall into this category.
These are the subjects actually open to abuse in the wrong hands. They are open to interpretations, speculations, and manipulations.
Just check out the personal development industry, religious groups/publications and you can see very quickly the issue.You should be extremely careful about choosing any self-help material. Get rich quick schemes, instantly become financially free, find your dream partner etc. are simply marketing gimmicks to get your hard-earned money.
These so-called gurus have so many secrets to remedy every situation and issues you may have. And there is always something you don’t do right to get the results promised!!!
Because you can’t quantify and measure their promises. These are abstract subjects and open to manipulations and some do abuse them.
