How To Avoid The Biggest Scam From Destroying Your Personal Success
You’ve been scammed and you don’t even know it yet. The biggest scam in human history is not what you think. As an influencer, as a public figure, as someone who is impacting millions of people, I get supporters, I get fans. I also get a lot of haters. One of the most common things I see that haters and critics are posting is this, “Dan Lok is a scam. He’s a scam artist. He’s a fraud.” To me, the biggest definition of a scam is you being taken advantage of without you realizing it. When I was in my twenties, one of the business ventures that I was getting involved with was with my neighbor in the same condo. At that time, he would help me to develop this particular website. I keep putting money, giving more money into it and I maxed out my credit card. I lost all my mom’s money. I borrow money from friends and family and this particular person, my so-called business partner who was building this website, I keep putting money into it. We would spend money on programming and all these different things. Eventually, one day I go to his house and he was gone. I was scammed.No one can take anything from you because you got nothing for them to take. Click To Tweet
I was being taken advantage of without even realizing it. I lost a $150,000 in debt because of my greed, because of how naive I was back then. That’s a scam. I have been scammed multiple times in my career. I want you to think about this. Number one, I’m talking to you, my haters and all my critics, in order for me to scam you, I will need something from you, which I don’t. Please don’t do me any favor. Don’t buy my books. Don’t buy my course. Don’t even watch my video. Don’t do me any favors. Do me a favor. Don’t watch my stuff. I don’t need anything from you. I don’t need a penny from you ever. I don’t even want you to buy anything. Please let me know your name. I’ll put you on the list to make sure my team knows. Please do not spend a penny with me. I do not want anything from you. I have everything I need. I have everything I want.
The reality is this. The biggest scam in human history is you’ve already been scammed. If you’re over 25 years old, if you’re honest, if you have nothing in your bank account, you have no money, you’re not living your dreams and you’ve got nothing to show for, you’ve already been scammed. You have nothing. You’ve been scammed. You’ve been scammed by the school system. You’ve been scammed by society. You’ve been scammed by the government. You’ve been scammed by the corporation. You have nothing. You’ve already been scammed. No one can take anything from you because you got nothing for them to take. You’ve got to think about it. You felt scared by your preconceived ideas of how things should work, but not how it works. Wake up. Look at the world as it is and not as how you think it should be. Whenever people want to make a change, they want to change their lives. They don’t want to follow the traditional path. Go to school, get good grades, get a job and work until your 65. Hopefully, with a little bit of luck, you can retire. Anyone who deviates from that path, they’re crazy. They are stupid. Why are you doing that? It is risky.
Anyone, anything, any course that teaches people how to do that is a scam. It has to be a scam. When I charge a little bit of money for what I teach, that’s a scam. When in the school system, you spend $10,000, $20,000, $30,000, $50,000, $100,000 or more to get a school education and you spend four years. You get into a student loan. If that’s you, share your story. Somehow after you graduate, maybe you’ll get a degree, maybe you get two degrees and you cannot even get a job. You cannot even survive. You cannot pay your bills. You’re still hundreds of thousand dollars in debt. That’s perfectly normal. That’s the way to go and still, people are telling you, your parents are telling you that’s the way to go. Your friends are telling you, “Just stay on the path.” Are you stupid? Can’t you see? It is not working and that’s why you are searching on social media and you say to yourself, “Mom and Dad, I love you but the path that you gave me, the path you told me, it didn’t work for you.”Look at the world as it is and not as how you think it should be.

I could see it. It did not work. You cannot retire. You’re not happy. You are broke. It did not work for you. Why do you keep telling me to do the same thing? Why are you scamming me like that? Giving me a path, planting thoughts in my head, telling me that this the way to go. It is not the way to go. I could clearly see it doesn’t work. That’s why I’m searching for answers. I want something else. I want a different life. I don’t want to fall for this scam anymore. I don’t want to be scammed by society, by the government, by preconceived ideas. I want to walk my own path. I want a different life. I want you to think about this very deeply. It is one of the most important conversations you have to have with yourself. It’s one of the most important decisions that you have to make and that is the path that you are going to choose.
