Why Do Self-Help Gurus Despise Larry Winget?
Larry Winget has six best-selling books (see below) and has spoken to almost 400 of the Fortune 500 companies. So why do so many people dislike him? I met Larry in June of 2014 and found him refreshingly honest and down-to-earth. Larry tells it like it is and refuses to let people off the hook in their own lives. Larry doesn't like complicated theories. Ask Larry about losing weight and he'll say "Eat less, exercise more." Ask Larry about getting out of debt and he'll say "Earn more, spend less." People don't want to hear his simple advice that require them to do something. So they make excuses and retort "Yes, but..." For Larry, there is no "yes, but." It's your life and you are responsible. Do what it takes and get the rewards. Slack off and bear the consequences. When asked about "The Secret," Larry replied "The Secret is Work." No wonder the purveyors of complicated self-help theories and books don't like Larry. Of course, the many people who have listened to him, done what he has told them and turned their lives around love him. Is there somewhere in your business or personal life where you need to simply become 100% responsible? Read one of Larry's books for a kick in the butt. Larry Winget's Best-Selling Books
