How To Be A Modern Guru
People no smarter than you are becoming Gurus. You can too.
"But they can sit cross-legged and meditate, or breathe through one nostril, or pronounce archaic Chinese," you say.
So what! The fad of the stereotyped Guru is passé. Gurus now come in many different shapes, I.Q.'s, and speech defects. Whatever your previous training or feeling of physical or mental inadequacy, you are as much a candidate for Guruhood as the next fellow or gal. In fact, more so.
You may think this book is a put-on. But just look around at the accelerating number of people becoming Gurus. Politicians, business consultants, think-tank experts, military advisors, investment analysts, and sanitary engineers.
They've tapped into a Way of proclaiming themselves teacher, trainer, instructor, master, tutor, director, coach, don, professor, lecturer, reader, prelector, prolocutor, preacher, chalk talker, pastor, schoolmaster, dominie, pedagogue, abecedarian, schoolmistress, dame, monitor, expositor, preceptor, guide, mentor, adviser, pioneer, apostle, missionary, propagandist, and munshi.
By taking on such titles, people listen to them, respect them--and PAY them for their Wisdom. These same methods are available to you--as revealed in this book.
