We are constantly bombarded by messages of all genres promising us success if we would change our thinking, take massive positive action, sign up for some talk or course, do things like rappel down the side of our office building, walk over hot coals, faithfully and diligently take our supplements, perform our exercises with great zeal, ad infinitum.
