The Secret

I have watched a video of The Secret and listened to the audio book. I've heard the same advice given, as the book says, by many before. The Secret is not a secret but it is about the hardest thing to do, visualizing totally of yourself in a different situation, and believing it enough and knowing that it is going to happen. Who else has read or watched or listened to the Secret, and what do you think of what it says?

As I said in another post my sister bought it and I didnt really get it at first it took some time to sink in. If you guys liked the secret I would recommend watching "what the bleep do we know" it is like a bigger step forward to the secret. I can say it honostly made a big difference in my life.

I watched that and enjoyed it, too, though I thought it ended up being about things like quantum physics as much as about mental energies. I may have to watch it again.

guess we all get the lessons we need from different things, for me what the bleep showed me why I acted the way I did. That was the first step to real change for me.

I watched the film and read parts of the book. I felt the same as you. Although I believe it can work, I find the whole visualizing very difficult. I can sit and day dream about my life somewhere else , the job I want the money I want , but I just don't get the exstatic happiness, the feeling you get when you have got what you want. I know it is this feeling that make it all happen. Or that is the impresion I got from the film. Any tips on this would be great , as it is the hardest thing for me to achieve on this subject.

What works best for me is to sit down and write things out. Write down one thing you want to achieve, than right down the pros and cons and make sure its something you want. Than make a list of everything that is keeping you from making this goal, put under each one of those what it will take to over come them. If you start to break it down and really think on the subject you might find a way to get there all on your own or you may find if you go over it in a few days that something has changed to get you to where you want to be. Keep the list and review it and update it every chance you can. This will help you to really visualise what it is you want and how you will get there.

There are many works that already elaborate on it, the Secret mostly says what so many other self help books say. If you can see it in your mind and focus on it with belief then your subconscious mind will believe it and it will get done. Any more elaboration you need to get a copy of the book or video to see.

I've watched The Secret, and I liked it a lot. I am a very visual person, and I have a good vivid imagination, so the idea of the visualizing really resonated with me. I have put into practice many of the things I learned in the movie (visualization, allowing yourself to feel as you would in the visualized moment, writing down things i am thankful for, starting each day positively, etc.) I have found these exercises to be quite helpful and I have gotten good results. It has helped me get to work on time despite traffic, get unexpected money ($120), lined up synchronistic events for me, and I am only sure that as I grow more skilled things will continue to improve and surprise me. I want to buy this or read more about the law of attraction, so if anyone can recommend anything, I'm listening.

I watched "The Secret" about 4 times...yes, it is hard and easy at the same time...we all are making choices and we can change whatever we want by our actions....and discipline... I was very successful in sports, not because I am stronger or better...I just knew how to put myself on strict discipline and be persistent... I changed my whole life few times already and I am not afraid to do it again...because I know already that we have the power... The Secret just put the definition on information that I already had, but I couldn’t name it...

I have not had a chance to read it yet, but I have certainly heard about it. I also had the chance to view it on Oprah...of course. I think it is very true. I am a competitive person and I have always done this visualization. Especially when I compete on horseback or if I really want to stand out in a situation and succeed. Who knew someone had to write a book about it? lol I think I will find it an interesting read since it seems that I do this type of thing almost automatically.
