I was recently recommended The Secret to listen to by a friend. She told me that over the past year, she’d managed to reach for her one-year goals. How? By listening to The Secret audiobook. Intrigued, I downloaded the audio to see what it was all about, and so that I could learn the secret to life too.
Not only did The Secret open my eyes, but I felt as if a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. This magical book by Rhonda Byrne gives you ‘the secret to life’ and ‘the secret to happiness’. Telling us how to achieve everything we want – whether it be love, work, health or wealth – and giving you the power and confidence to do so. So what is the secret?
Through the teachings of Rhonda Byrne and other success stories we learn what this secret is. The storytellers constantly remind us that it’s our mind that controls the energy we bring toward us. Like tuning in to a radio station, we need to tune intp a frequency that brings us what we want to hear, and what we want to focus our mind on. It’s all down to the power of our imagination. If you have positive thoughts you’ll attract positive energy. Ever heard the saying ‘positive mind, positive vibes, positive life’? Well, it’s exactly that. The more you control your thoughts and relieve yourself of the negative ones, the more you’ll control your life and rid yourself of negative energy. This works in every aspect of your life, whatever you need it to be.
The next thing they teach you, is to be thankful. Always be thankful – be grateful for what you have, and say thank you when it’s needed. Kindness goes a long way, and when you show gratitude, good things will come back to you.
The Secret remained top of The New York Times Bestsellers for 146 consecutive weeks (wow!) and has been translated into more than 40 languages; it’s safe to say it’s a popular read. However, the book has caused controversy and has been criticised for its claims, but whether you choose to believe it or not, I can first-handedly say it was life changing for me.
My views on life dramatically changed, and the actions I take are carefully thought out, while I try maintain a positive mindset with everything I do. If my morale is ever low, I listen to a chapter of The Secret to change my attitude and to remind myself that it’s my mind that controls my life. And everything is A OK. After all, a positive mind brings a positive life – it’s the ‘law of attraction.’
Thank you for reading.
