Ever since I wrote, Why You’re DUMB, SICK & BROKE and How to get SMART, HEALTHY & RICH, I’ve proven again and again that I can predict a hit show or movie with complete accuracy. Think about that Chinese studio that just yanked a movie from the theaters in week one because it was a bomb. They reportedly spent $100 million making it, and it took in 7 million. If they would have sent me the script with a check for $5,000, I could have saved them all of that dosh.
Where do I get this amazing psychic ability?
It isn’t from Miss Cleo. In fact, it isn’t psychic at all. All you need to know to determine if a book, TV show, or movie is going to be a breakout hit, is to determine if it panders to a majority of people’s limiting beliefs.
There’s a new Sunday night show on HBO called Succession. It boasts some amazing acting talent and the trailer was intriguing, so I added it to my TiVo lineup. I watched exactly two and a half episodes, switched it off and cancelled the recording. The show contains so much negative programming, I don’t want my subconscious mind to be exposed to another minute of it.
And I can tell you this: It’s going to be a big hit!
Why? Because the entire focus of every episode is dedicated to showcasing wealthy people as rich assholes. At least with shows like Dallas and Dynasty, there were competing factions of people, some good, some evil. With Succession, there is no such nuance. Literally every single wealthy character in the show is presented as a money-grubbing, sell their soul, evil, mean-spirited, conniving, weasel.
In my book, I talked about mind viruses, and how they parasitize the host (you and I), causing us to replicate the viruses into those around us. Some of the most powerful and prevalent mind viruses in the world today revolve around money. These include:
Based on the two and a half episodes I watched, I can conclusively say that Succession panders to every single one of these. And that’s what will make it a hit.
Bonus Lesson: Succession is like the Titanic and Avatar movies, the more you love the show – the more negative beliefs you have.
