Empowerment Infomercial

I was flicking through the channels when one of these ’ self empowerment’ infomercials was showing. It had this american guy, who had a really deep voice, and he was talking about it in australia with this woman who had tried it. The american guy was going on about how decisions could alter your life and if you would regret it when you were 80, he was explaining how he was told how to imagine that and how you should plan ahead 5, 10 years and get towars that goal. One question, what is it all about, is it a scam?
