"They" 1 want you to hope for a miracle... magic, windfall...
And you have been compliant. You buy magical supplements. Start magical diets. Go to magical healers. Buy magical courses.
Magic bullet. You have a storehouse of those.
I recommended to a new client that she sells it to people who still want a magic bullet. She didn't say yes. I guess she still hopes that one day they will magically start working.
I got a deep insight in this kind of thinking when i read the otherwise worthless long book by Laura Knight-Jadczyk. OK, it is not worthless to me, actually they were worth their weight in gold... they are worthless to you. The woman has insight, but mixes it with crap... I took the insights, if you read her stuff, you'll probably eat the crap.
Anyway, what i got is the historical roots of magical thinking.
A lot of people have bad skin. Acne, rashes, moles, cellulites... uglies. I put cellulite into this category.
The fixit mentality, the mindset where you don't go beyond first base 1 is making people rich. Not you, mind you, people who are willing to sell you s-h-i-t, that you don't need. You don't need it because it won't work.
