How Many Of You Are Living In Robert Greene's ''48 Laws Of Power? ''

How many of you are living in Robert Greene's ''48 Laws of Power? '' Or to paraphrase, how many of you are slaves? My one law of power is better than all of his combined. The only law of power: Learn to embarrass yourself. Repeat this law and you will eventually succeed. You'll conquer the world. Stop living with ''Francis Bacon'' syndrome. Stop trying to appear perfect to people in order to guard your reputation. Stop living with ''Nikola Tesla'' syndrome. Stop trying to perfect everything in secret before it's seen. You're already perfect. Everything you have done, are doing, and will do you were supposed to. But it is only the realization of this that counts. It is the only thing that will raise you to your God self. Stop making your tree invisible until it's fully grown, your house invisible until it's fully built. It's against nature. Learn to show it off in the process before complete manifestation. Learn to be like me and you will learn what it's like to be God, not just a god.
