Both rules (golden and platinum) have their flaws if theyre taken to the extremes, but both are basically meant to promote equality and respect for your fellow human being. It doesnt really matter which one you use, as long as you have good intentions, things are probably going to work out for the best.
And that's why I don't believe in enclosed beliefs. "here are the golden rules", "the words of wisdom", etc. No matter how many "masters" or prophets told and tell their ones.
Not in Steve words either.
(or Tony Robbins or whoever) Of course. Not anyone words... everyone is partially wrong, partially right. Me, you, and Jesus, except for religious people that prefer to adopt dogmas and such. Some people do the same in PD, sometimes it seems like a religion, following the words of someone 100%. I don't think it's bad, some people need leaders, especially before the courage of thinking and deciding for themselves.
"Think for yourself, cause I won't be there with you" The Beatles. Not Steve, Tony Robbins, Jesus or whoever is gonna be there to be asked when you have a doubt...
What Steve says first at his page... is "That means having the responsability of taking control of your conscious personal development..." or so. I see that like "It's you that has to think, I only say my point of view to help you think..."
