Turns it out was not a normal movie, but instead like an inspirational self-help documentary film.
As I was watching The Secret I realized that I already knew this information, we all know it. Some people do actually achieve their dreams, they ignore what others tell them and instead they follow their heart and mind, visualizing their dreams into reality.
There is nothing wrong with working for other people, however it rarely provides us with the means to truly achieve our dreams.
We all have many dreams, however I feel that these are the core things that we want in our lives for us and our loved ones. After watching this film I realized that I’ve always known this information and the power to do what we want. It is also important to realize what is happening subconsciously, this applies to the thoughts we don’t focus on, yet occur in the back of our mind.
This almost has to come first before you can ask, but once you know what you want, you need to constantly visualize it in your mind.
The following is a creed from the book, a creed that we should follow to mentally change our way of thinking if we are truly are determined to dramatically improve our way of living life for the better. To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.
Whatever it is you are feeling, is a perfect reflection of what is in the process of becoming.
That mantra alone should inspire us all to follow our inner voice and pursue our dreams regardless of what else is going on around our lives.
After watching this film a few times I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting upon my life and the dreams of the life I want to live.

The Secret (book), and check out The Secret (book) on Wikipedia, Youtube, Google News, Google Books, and Twitter on Digplanet. The Secret is a best-selling 2006 self-help book written by Rhonda Byrne, based on the earlier film of the same name.
After being featured in two episodes of The Oprah Winfrey Show, the book reached the top of The New York Times's bestseller list, where it remained for 146 consecutive weeks.
In 2009, the film's producer, Paul Harrington, released a book for teenagers called The Secret to Teen Power.
The Secret posits that the law of attraction is a natural law which determines the complete order of the universe and of our personal lives through the process of "like attracts like". The book begins by introducing and explaining the mechanisms of the law of attraction, and then describes historical examples of its application and great men and women in history who are claimed to have harnessed its power.
Next, a three-step creative process for making dreams manifest is introduced: ask, believe, and receive.
The Secret highlights gratitude and visualization as the two most powerful processes to help make one's desires manifest.
For example, if a person wanted a new car, by thinking positively about the new car, having thankful feelings about the car as if it were already attained, and opening one's life in tangible ways for a new car to be acquired (for instance, test-driving the new car, or making sure that no-one parks in the space where the new car would arrive), the law of attraction would rearrange events to make it possible for the car to manifest in the person's life. The subsequent chapters describe how to use the law of attraction specifically in the areas of wealth, relationships, and health. The claims made by both the book and the film are highly controversial, and have been criticized by reviewers and readers.
Some critics say that The Secret offers false hope to those in true need of more conventional assistance in their lives.
In a harshly critical 2010 review, The New York Times stated: "'The Power' and 'The Secret' are larded with references to magnets, energy and quantum mechanics. The Secret has been parodied in The Simpsons episode "Bart Gets a 'Z'," where Bart gets his teacher a book entitled The Answer, which is supposed to change her life after he unintentionally ruined it.
Visit the self-help section on Amazon or browse the shelves of your local bookshop and you will find hundreds of books that promise to improve your life in any number of ways. In Britain, ita€™s estimated that the cult of self-help has earned publishers some A?60a€‰millionA  in the past five years. Yet the very fact that there are so many self-help books on the market is likely to be a sign that none of them is particularly effective. In his book Sham: How The Self-HelpA  Movement Made America Helpless, author Steve Salerno argues that there are huge costs associated with the public acceptance of the self-help movement. In fact, scientific research shows that some forms of positive thinking are, indeed, beneficial.
Like many self-help books, there are other problems with The Secret besides its questionable science. In 2007, Rhonda Byrne, who wrote the book The Secret, was listed as one of Time Magazine's 100 people who shape the worldThe problem with self-help books like this one is that they can steer people away from effective solutions to their problems by suggesting that good health, love, and riches are theirs for the asking if they just think about them. The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline. The Secret took only a few years to become the best-selling self-help book of all time, making Rhonda Byrne world famous in the area of personal development.
The purpose of this Review of the Secret is to help you decide for yourself whether or not purchasing and using this movie or any of these materials is worth your time and money.
Probably the most credible thing about The Secret is that some of the greatest minds in personal development decided to take part in it. Obviously, the list of individuals who held this belief and the things which they accomplished in their lives makes it impossible to ignore the power of the law of attraction and the impact of our thoughts on our lives. My guess is that the people who participated in the secret know that there’s a whole lot more to it than that, and that nothing happens unless you invest action and persistence towards achieving it.

We are all empowered to achieve the lives we want through our vision, will power, and actions to accomplish them.


Unfortunately for most of us, the lives we are living today, are not the lives we dreamed of in our younger days.
We don’t understand the concept of not being able to achieve what we want, we just know that we can do it and we set out to achieve our vision. We actually start to sacrifice the scope and scale of our dreams and adjust them to our current situation. While many others get stuck into the mentality that working for others is the way to live our lives. The fact that we adjust our lives to our situation instead of taking the actionable steps to pursue our dreams is completely wrong, we should never sacrifice what we truly desire in life.
I have a home and amazing wife, I’ve traveled throughout a good part of the world and I live my life with no regrets. If someone always has negative thoughts and are negative in life, then their lives tend to be filled with constant negativity. Simple things that need to be constantly persistent in our minds daily…every day we should be focused on our dream.
Don’t let anything distract you from acknowledging that you will undoubtedly receive that which you ask for in you mind. Write it down, print it out, use pictures, make it the last thing you see before going to bed and the first thing you see when you wake up. Never stop believing in your own heart, follow it endlessly with the right vision and you will achieve your dreams.
My next step to help clearly visualize my dreams is to write them all down, draw and map them out. Preview ebook and open the sample ebook on each of your intended devices before continuing. Harness joie de vivre by pursuing insane interests, consuming passions, and constant sources of gratification that do not depend on the approval of others. Choice of what ebook reading app to use is yours, we only present a few common apps that several customers of ours have preferred. It is based on the law of attraction and claims that positive thinking can create life-changing results such as increased happiness, health, and wealth. The tenet of the film and book is that the universe is governed by a natural "law" called the law of attraction, which is said to work by attracting into a person's life the experiences, situations, events and people that "match the frequency" of the person's thoughts and feelings. Byrne has also released a calendar and several follow-up books, including The Power in August 2010 and The Magic in 2012, both of which also reached number one on The New York Times's bestseller list. The author claims that as we think and feel, a corresponding frequency is sent out into the universe which attracts back to us events and circumstances on that same frequency. The book describes the law as accounting for a magnetic power that is emitted through one's thoughts. It claims that being grateful both lifts your frequency higher and affirms that you believe you will receive your desire. This last is a dead giveaway: whenever you hear someone appeal to impenetrable physics to explain the workings of the mind, run awaya€”we already have disciplines called 'psychology' and 'neuroscience' to deal with those questions.
Lisa Randall has stated that it is "disquieting" that Byrne claimed to have "never studied physics or science at school, and yet when (Byrne) read complex books on quantum physics (Byrne) understood them perfectly because (Byrne) wanted to understand them".[20] Mary Carmichael and Ben Radford have stated that the book has "a semblance of scientific accuracy. You can read, among other things, about the secrets to daily joy and lasting fulfilment, how to find career success, five simple steps to emotional healing, and how to stop worry and anxiety from ruining your relationships.
After all, if one of them really did unlock the secret to everlasting happiness, wouldna€™t itA  corner the market and crowd out all the others?
Buying into the overblown claims such books make, he argues, can lead to you blaming yourself for failure when you dona€™t achieve theA  outcome you hoped for a€” and avoiding treatments that actually work. For a small investment, we get hope in return a€” the dream that all our problems will soon be solved, without any real expectation that they will be. Think, instead, about slipping on a pair of your favourite jeans and buttoning them over a perfectly flat stomach. Again, though, self-help books typically ignore this research and embed their messages in questionable ideologies. Rhonda Byrne reports that she cured herself of farsightedness in three days by imagining that she had perfect eyesight a€” to the point where she no longer needs reading glasses. All of them also believed that there was a connectedness in the universe which caused us to be linked to everything in existence. As long as you keep this in mind, I think The Secret would be a great addition to your library and would help you to keep your thoughts focused on what you want while you’re busy working your plan of action towards achieving it. More DetailsLast week my wife Jenny told me she wanted to watch a movie with me that was on YouTube called The Secret. The film will empower us to live the life we want, when we learn to apply this secret it will dramatically influence us to change our lives to live our dreams, you just need to take the necessary steps to make it part of your everyday life. Yet some how this knowledge, and more importantly, the vision and feelings become suppressed over the years as we grow up and settle into the dogmas of society. We start with lots of education through schools and then getting a job or starting our own business. Realizing the our day job will not provide the true dream, so instead we make new smaller dreams that satisfy us to be contempt with the lives we are living.
Progressing through the corporate ladders and moving our way up to earn more money while we work our asses off…or for some, not working very hard at all. The more we ask and visualize what we want in life, the more we will attract it and have it bought into our lives. Yet if you have a positive outlook and energy in your life, then your life tends to be filled with positivity. Don’t just visualize it for one hour and then forget about it, if you really want it then you need to constantly visualize it in your mind every day to achieve it. There are many mantras from buddhism that overlap with this creed that help us be better people to ourselves, our loved ones, and everyone we come in contact with. I’ve even had a some exhilarating visions and feeling of actually believing I already have it. The book has sold more than 19 million copies worldwide and has been translated into 46 languages.[1] It has attracted a great deal of controversy and criticism for its claims, and has been parodied on several TV programs. From this, the book argues that thinking positively can create life-changing results, such as increased wealth, health and happiness.
For example, if a person thinks angry thoughts and feels angry, the author claims that said person will attract back events and circumstances that cause them to feel more anger. The power of thoughts is likened to the power in a transmission tower, which sends out a frequency to the universe and then returns the same frequency in a physical or elemental form. Visualization is said to help focus the mind to send out the clearest message to the universe. The final chapters offer a more spiritual perspective on the law of attraction, and how it relates to one's life and the world.
Little wonder, then, that these books sell in huge numbers a€” and sell fast, particularly during an economic downturn.
Instead, there is what is known in the self-help industry as the a€?18-month rulea€™ a€” which is that the person most likely to buy a book this week is someone who bought one 18 months earlier.


I tend to agree.Furthermore, very little of the advice offered in self-help books has been tested scientifically, despite the fact that there are ways to do so.
In Rhonda Byrnea€™s case, the belief system is a New Age philosophy that is unabashedly evocative of the Da Vinci Code. If you dona€™t get those Louboutin shoes, that promotion, or you have an accident, well, apparently ita€™s yourA  fault. Even more startlingly, in the book a woman claims that she cured herself of breast cancer in three months, without medical treatment, by believing that she was healed. But the important thing about this movie was not the person delivering the message, but the message which was delivered by over a dozen of the most well known success coaches in the world. All of these people claim that the same secret which has made them successful (the Law of attraction) was used by historical figures like Leonardo Davinci, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Thomas Edison, Einstein, JD Rockefeller, Dale Carnegie and many more. So by focusing your thoughts on something, you actually tune your mind and body into the same frequency and begin attracting energies which are consistent with what you’re thinking. Yet if you study the lives of the great achievers (living and dead), even those who believed in the Law of attraction, you’ll find that all of them have one thing in common. So I wish you much success, prosperity and health, and that you’re able to find a way to get the great secret to work for you. It’s not just financial either, good health, great relationships, and family are just as important in our lives. Through this process of growing up from child to young adult we fall into the trappings of society and become conditioned to simply fit in and be a part of it.
It all depends on our outlook on life and what is in our minds, the things we are constantly thinking are the things that we attract. In time it will become second nature, but the first month you start this change will be a challenge to apply it daily. It is really rewarding and now I am trying to change my life to incorporate this secret and apply it to my everyday life. Conversely, if the person thinks and feels positively, they will attract back positive events and circumstances.
Several techniques are given for the visualization process, as well as examples of people claimed to have used visualization successfully to make their dreams manifest. While UK book sales were down recently by 1A per cent overall, sales of self-help books for the same period soared by 25 per cent. As an example, leta€™s take a look at one of the most popular publications of recent years, The Secret (a€?Whatever you dream of can be yoursa€™), written by Australian TV producer Rhonda Byrne.
The a€?Secreta€™ has been known by a select few throughout history, Byrne informs us a€” including the Babylon-ians, Plato, Shakespeare, Beethoven, Abraham Lincoln and Albert Einstein a€” but has been hidden from the rest of us until she uncovered it.
They all committed to the pursuit of the object of their desire with careful planning, constant persistence and a burning desire to get what they want. I thought, a YouTube video, this should be quick, I pulled it up on the TV through our Apple TV. Being financially independent is no good if you’re all alone in the world, part of the dream is to share the journey of life together with someone you love. The next thing you know your going through the motions of life without any real direction because it is what everyone else is doing or what someone else told you.
Give back in life to those you love and those you come in contact with, regardless of what other people think, and remember to never be judgmental.
Proponents claim that desirable outcomes such as better health, wealth, and happiness can be attracted simply by changing one's thoughts and feelings. Little wonder there have been reports of people seeking therapy when a€?the universea€™ has failed to deliver.
At the time I wasn’t expecting to watch a 90 minute movie, I was busy selfishly entertaining myself with Borderlands 2. Instead, they offer mantras and a€?remediesa€™ that are designed to make people feel good a€” but they dona€™t actually cure what ails them.
The third step is to a€?livea€™ the idea of having what you want, feeling as you will once you get it. Worldwide, the DVD has sold more than two million copies, and the book more than four million. Research reveals there are three key ingredients to human happiness: meaning, hope, and purpose. For us to feel truly content we need a spiritual andA  ethical framework a€” be itA  religious or otherwise a€” that gives us an understanding of our place in the world, in a way that allows us to make sense of why bad things sometimes occur. Second, it helps to be optimistic a€” not because positive thoughts magically attract things to us, but because optimistic people cope better with adversity. It turns out to be pretty simple: the a€?law of attractiona€™, which says that thinking about something makes it more likely to happen to you. Third, it helps to view ourselves as strong protagonists who set our own goals and make progress toward them. Once you understand this basic a€?law of the universea€™, there are three simple steps to getting whatever you want. The good news is that there are relatively simple exercises any of us can do to shape our views in these directions.
If you are trying to shed a few pounds, for example, Burns advises you should not think about the fact that you are too heavy. THE PENNEBAKER EXERCISE Is there something in your life that you are particularly worried or upset about right now?
All you have to do is commit to writing about your problem for at least 15 minutes a day for three or four consecutive days a€” ideally, at the end of the day, and without interruption. Writing your thoughts and feelings down about a specific issue really can help you to analyse and change your feelings and approach to it.THE STEP-BACK-AND-ASK-WHY-APPROACH THIS helps people get over events from their past that they find particularly upsetting or depressing. Close your eyes, and go back to the time of the experience and see the scene in your minda€™s eye. Move away from the situation to a point where you can now watch the event unfold from a distance and see yourself in the event. What were the underlying causes and reasons?MAINTAIN A SENSE OF PURPOSEWhen everything we do feels futile, we should remind ourselves of our most important goals in life and find ways of making progress toward them.
Caring for our families is the most important goal for many of us, and for many of us there are ways we can do it better. Whatever it is that gives us a sense of purpose, we should be sure to make time in our lives to pursue it. People often forget to follow it when choosing careers or deciding how to spend their leisure time.THE DO GOOD, BE GOOD PRINCIPLE Some of us may be slightly pessimistic, and some of us endure blows such as losing our jobs or seeing a relationship disintegrate.
