In another thread, I was surprised to hear that people were intimidated by the "Smart People" tag on StevePavlina.com. I thought that maybe it needs its own thread, both because of the reactions people have to it, and because nobody seems to interpret it the way I do.
I think it's empowering. And this is what it comes down to:
When you buy a book that says it's for dummies, what are you calling yourself? A dummy!
Do you really want to go through life labeling yourself as a dummy? By creating a site that's for smart people, not dummies, StevePavlina.com allows its readers to have a shred of self-respect.
And as you'll find in many topics regarding personal development, negative self affirmations -- calling yourself fat, ugly, or stupid (a "dummy") -- do nothing but hold you back.
So don't be intimidated by the label -- embrace it!
For reference, below is part of Steve's reasoning behind using the "Smart People" tag.
