Jack Canfield is one of the slickest salesmen in the new age field.
What if its not that they choose between success, and personal life?
What if its just that what they are selling, sounds good and sells and makes money, but doesn't work?
That is more likely what is going on.
Time and time again, the personal life of the new age Guru's have nothing at all to do with what they sell.
They are selling Illusions.
They sell things that people want to hear, so people buy it. But it doesn't work, so people just move on, and buy some more.
So they are merely expert at selling people what they think they want to hear, and make millions.
That is their skill.
They don't know anything about "success" or happiness, or anything else. All they know how to do is sell people stuff, and in this field, sell the Illusions, and even delusions.
