Why You're Dumb, Sick and Broke and How to Get Smart, Healthy, and Rich!

Why You're Dumb, Sick and Broke and How to Get Smart, Healthy, and Rich! Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shocking. Controversial. Brilliant.

Randy Gage has been dubbed "The Millionaire Messiah" because he believes it is a sin to be poor and you were born to be rich. His "Deepak Chopra meets Dennis Miller" style is bold, brash, but right on target if you want to know the secrets of success. This book is not warmed-over, New Age mumbo-jumbo but scathing, straight talk on what it really takes to wise up, get healthy, and get rich in today's complex and competitive world. Gage is controversial, politically incorrect, and not afraid to take on some of the most hallowed institutions of our day, from organized religion to government, from pop culture to the food you eat.

This thought-provoking book will challenge your beliefs, help you confront your fears, and–if you are open to it–show you how to get smart, healthy, and rich!

Gage On:

The Late Pope:

"Like most religious leaders, his actions actually worked to keep his followers dumb, sick, and broke. He leaves behind a legacy of poverty, ignorance, and despair."

Selfishness:

"Your highest moral prerogative is your own happiness."

The American Diet:

"Ninety percent of what most of us eat on a daily basis is now 'fake food.'"

Governments:

". . . are corrupt by their very nature. Your government wants and needs you to be a worker drone in the collective support system in harvesting wealth from the productive people and distributing it to the unproductive–which solidifies their power base."

People Whose Life Purpose is to "Serve God":

"Ought to be in a straightjacket."

Synopsis:

If you're one of the millions of people stressed with money issues, struggling with health challenges, or enduring work that brings you no satisfaction, Why You're Dumb, Sick and Broke . . . And How to Get Smart, Healthy and Rich! is the perfect book for you. And it's perfect for those winning the rat race but living like a rat.

In this powerful and groundbreaking book, Randy Gage reveals the secrets of manifesting health, happiness, and prosperity in your life—but in a way you've never experienced before. He takes the timeless and universal principles of success and applies them to the complexities, challenges, and realities of today's world.

Why You're Dumb, Sick and Broke . . . And How to Get Smart, Healthy and Rich! takes on all of the people, institutions, and beliefs that threaten your health, happiness, and prosperity. But be forewarned: Gage is blunt, outspoken, and brutally honest. No target is off limits—from religious leaders to media outlets, from well-meaning family members to New Age self-help gurus. He is dedicated to exposing the insidious role of "memes" that can infect your subconscious mind and cause you to sabotage your own success.

From reality television to an education system that kills critical thinking ability—from cults to organized religion, from dysfunctional families to the pervasive mentality of victim-hood and entitlement—Gage holds nothing back in revealing the forces at work in keeping most people dumb, sick, and broke. Read this book and discover his powerful action plan for getting smart, healthy, and rich!

About the Author

RANDY GAGE has been called a "Jedi Knight of Prosperity." He takes that role seriously, working to save the inhabitants of the universe from their worst enemy—themselves.

Of course, Gage has also been called arrogant, judgmental, and evil. But one thing is certain: his brash, outspoken, and straight-shooting advice produces solid results. Millions of people worldwide have thrown off limiting beliefs and achieved higher levels of success thanks to his advice.

A former high school dropout, Gage rose from a dishwasher in a pancake house to become a multimillionaire. Today, he is recognized as one of the world's preeminent experts on prosperity. For more than fifteen years, he has been helping other people transform self-limiting beliefs into business and personal success.

Gage is the author of Prosperity Mind, The 7 Spiritual Laws of Prosperity, 101 Keys to Your Prosperity, Accept Your Abundance, 37 Secrets About Prosperity, and How to Build a Multi-Level Money Machine. His books and other learning resources have been translated into Spanish, Chinese, Norwegian, Korean, German, Russian, Czech, Portuguese, Slovene, Macedonian, Croatian, Indonesian, and Dutch, among other languages.

Gage takes the conventional beliefs that money is bad, rich people are evil, and it's spiritual to be poor and positively detonates them in a flurry of opposing evidence. His own compelling journey of triumph over poverty, fear, and self-doubt demonstrates the true power of your mind to attract and maintain prosperity in your life.
