Have you watched it? I just recently finished watching it. DO you truly believe it? Have you tried some of the changes to see if they effect you? I'm a never ending skeptic, but really think that an attitude adjustment can do a world of good for you and your future.

Yeah ive seen the secret several times. I think It was a great documentray or what ever you call it. But I dont know if it works or not ive tried it on different things and sometimes it works and sometimes it dosnt. I know it works for smaller stuff like when in the morning you tell yourself your going to have a good day AND most of the time it works then. But it hasnt worked for getting money has it worked for anyone else.

There is something so simple about WORKING towards having a positive attitude and a positive outlook on life and each day. It's so simple, someone had to TELL me to do it, but I am working on keeping a positive outlook and hoping that it alone will impact my life

I have not watched it or read the book. Im a bit too sceptical for that. However, I know for a fact that some ppl are taking it very seriously. My friends ex husband has actually joind a type of cult that follows it out in california. It think thats a bit too weird for me. What ever just happened to the golden rule?

Well, this is very different from the golden rule. The golden rule is to treat others the way you wish to be treated. The "Secret" is more about creating a positive attitude in your life and being open to get the things you want. You can do both. But, yeah, cults, no matter their foundation, are VERY SCARY!

The principles outlined in The Secret are not new and have been streamlined to appeal to mass consciousness. These ideas have been practiced by metaphysicians for years in ancient mystery schools that go far back in time. There is an expression that has proven true for me...and that is that anything the mind can conceive and believe it really can achieve. These principles are based on moving consciousness beyond that which is seen outwardly and into energetic realms that work on a like attracts like principle. Thoughts are things...and we draw into our lives much of what we give attention to. I have been involved with energy based frameworks for years and now work as a life coach and group leader with my husband. Becoming more conscious and living in present time allows us to focus with greater clarity. When the endless mind chatter, worrisome, negative thoughts are put aside a clarity develops and consciousness can move beyond the outer appearance of things and allow other energies to reveal themselves. Yes attitude adjustments can and do work...that I know for sure. Changes come when we do things consistently over time. If you are interested you might want to check out the movies What the Bleep Do We Know Anyway? It fills in a lot of blanks for those just are beginning to explore these ideas. Raia

I watched and it was an eye opening experience. I believe in some of the stuff while others were just funny. It basically says to be an optimistic person and have an attitude to succeed in whatever you do. The law of attraction. If you think positive then positive things are drawn to you. If you think negatively then negative things are going to happen to you. In most cases this is true. It goes back to psychology 101, self-limiting belief. Don't limit yourself or else you will fall below or at the limit. If you set yourself to succeed you will see yourself setting goals and pathways for you to reach that goal. Therefore, in the end you will have that desire outcome. Hope that helps hehe.
