Throughout this MKMMA experience one feature that has held my fascination throughout is the way all the segments come together – Haanel, Og, Emerson, et al – and stimulate firing and wiring in the little grey cells.
For example: Emerson, in “Self-Reliance”, talks about the virtue that most seek out is conformity. Haanel (in lesson 23) talks about the docile attitude of the majority who let other people do their thinking for them.
I also like Haanel, in writing about “We get what we give”, might have had network marketing in mind when he says: “We make money by making friends, and we enlarge our circle of friends by making money for them, by helping them, by being of service to them”.
In the UK we are presently bombarded by politicians in pre-election campaign mode. The trouble is they and their manifestos all come out looking the same dull, uniform grey. “Fifty Shades of Grey” might give us something to talk about! Emerson has them summed up: “This conformity makes them not false in a few particulars, authors of a few lies, but false in all particulars. Their every truth is not quite true”.
