That makes perfect sense.
I grew up with parents who were deeply into "think and grow rich" type stuff, my dad was a salesman during the 80s, and my parents were both in Amway for a while in the 70s and they were hardcore into some of the cheesiest 70s-80s positive thinking stuff. (Now dad is into Landmark and mom is into The Secret... sigh.) NAP legit reminds me of a quasi parody of sales training pamphlets, Amway stuff, and cold war era salesman culture. It cracks me up.
NAP vibes like that and I suspect that part of its effectiveness for some people is what it is for me, it connects me to a zeitgeist that had a different attitude, but a lot of it is that the book has a personality that I believe I'm actually engaging with. So much modern magic in a lot of my social circles is focused on completely different concerns and unless you're in wealthy circles a majority of people oppose you wanting or having survival advantages they don't have, and that includes most occultists - and that isn't a problem for NAP at all.
