Malcolm Gladwell talked about the 10,000 Hour Rule. He did not argue for it. Instead, he gave us many examples of successful people who devoted their lives to doing one thing they are passionate about. However, most people want instant success. They ignore the 10,000 Hour Rule. Ten thousand hours? They are sick-and-tired of where they are. They need a genie. Or a motivational speaker who can teach them how to be a billionaire by attending a wealth conference. Most motivational speakers preach “work smart, not hard”. They attract all kinds of people, most of them want to hear the good news for less than 500 pesos. They will try everything that will free themselves from work. There are different ways of “working smart”. First, they can change their mindset; they must believe that they are billionaires. The Law of Attraction becomes a convenient new religious doctrine. These will make them attract everything they want. They become magnets of money, fame, and success. Promotion is easier this way. If they can produce strong enough vibration, then everything will fall into place. This also works for relationship. Following the Law of Attraction, you can make any girl fall in love with you. They will throw away the ten thousand hour rule; the Law of Attraction is supreme. Although the Law of Attraction is nothing but the old orasyon, anting-anting, gayuma, and agimat, people can easily accept it because the Secret was revealed by successful shamans. Oprah happens to be one of them, and Oprah is a rich person. The second way of working smart is by inviting people to Business Orientation Meetings. Ensure they buy expensive products regularly, and convince them to invite people – their kamag-anak, katrabaho, kapamilya, and kakilala. Multi-level marketing works. This is why some companies invite motivational speakers to their conventions. They are to persuade people to leave employment and to give more time to their own network marketing business. Many of them claim that employment are just for losers. I am very sure these big networking companies have employees working for them.
