By Duff McDuffee on May 26th, 2010 1

Greetings growthy people! I had the idea today to do little videos on the subject of “demystifying personal development”—’cause vlogging is the new Tweeting, right?

Anyway, here is the first installment:

I don’t know about you, but I think I might just be the new wine marketing guy, except like for personal development instead of wine…because I don’t really drink alcohol.

If you have any questions about personal development, please ask me in the comments! I’m an expert and here to help.

    Thanks for this. I like this better than a lot of personal development vlogs because at least it didn't contain "50 Ways To Try Harder." You kept it concise.

    Hey Duff… oh my goodness, but this was HILARIOUS. You have nailed the tone and inherent absurdity of these personal development gurus to a T!!

    Thanks for making me laugh so hard first thing today.

    I tried as hard as I could and dislocated my left shoulder creating a slight imbalance! However, I see this as a good thing because I heard some guru once say that "balance is bogus"

    I am seriously disappointed, Duff, by the dearth of distracting hand movements. I thought these were mandatory for growthy people and I miss the annoyance and frustration of trying to work out what they could possibly mean.

    As someone who has been seeking enlightment I have to say, you nailed it.

    Just saw this video…hilarious…and true.
    Though I always thought the reason you're not successful is because "you're not doing it right."
    But don't worry…I can always teach you the TRUE laws of success.
