Nothing. I didn't criticise having a perfect body, I criticised having a perfect body as top priority. Having a perfect body as a top priority seems to be the message of many advertisements and LOA videos/speeches/texts and this I criticised.
"A bit of advice, if I may--stop worrying about other people and their motives. Focus on yourself. When you do, you simply won't pay attention to what others do, because you'll be too concerned with what you're doing."
What makes you think that I worry about other people and their motives? What I criticised was superficial adverts and LOA videos/speeches/books and people who are fooled by those things -- not people who happen to have beautiful bodies because they exercise a lot.
Or are you saying that stating my opinions on the Internet is "worrying about other people and their motives"? In that case you're doing the same.
Well, I think the very topic, and that you would "criticize having a perfect body as a top priority" is questioning motive. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I did it for quite some time, myself, and so I won't criticize you for doing it.
I only suggested that you focus on yourself, because, after worrying about other peoples' motives for so long myself, since I no longer do that, I've become a much happier person, and most assuredly one for whom the LoA is more likely to work, because, as instead of finding fault among others, I'm more grateful for what I *do* have. Generally, I suggest to everyone that they focus on oneself, because life is so much more beautiful if you do.
Of course, you can do as you will. I only made the point, because I learned the hard way that to criticize anyone for their ego is just more ego. That's all.
