Is “The Secret” a con or a brilliant book (Movie)?
I want to share my thoughts on this subject.
Reading “The Secret” for the first time
The first time I read “The Secret” I had just trained to be a Life Skills Coach. Whilst my training was wonderful and it had certainly helped me be a more positive person and make some positive changes in my life. I was working with a few clients, but I still felt I wanted more. I wanted to be able to give more to the people I worked with.
I actually bought the book for someone else. When I got it home, I wanted to check it was going to be suitable for the person I’d bought it for as they were at that time going through a very emotional time.
I ended up reading the book from cover to cover and kept that book for myself and went on to buy the DVD of the movie too. I also at a later stage bought the book again for the person the book was originally bought for.
Yes, I am a huge fan of “The Secret”
I think I’ve read the book cover to cover about 20 times and I still dip into the book regularly for inspiration even now that I’m a qualified Law of Attraction Practitioner.
I read the book a few times straight away and ordered the movie quite soon after. This just made sense to me. I felt inspired. And this book was the start of my own law of attraction journey.
Okay, I don’t really think there are cons. I feel the book is for most people a fantastic introduction to how the law of attraction works.
Many criticize the book for being too simplistic and not going into enough detail.
Honestly, I think this is nonsense. When you buy a computer for the first time and you have the internet connected, you learn a little and mostly you’ll learn the main important parts first, then once you’ve mastered those things, you might want to go a little or a lot deeper into learning how to get the most out of your computer and the internet.
This is how I see “The Secret”
Some people read the book or watch the movie and that’s it, from this information alone they are able to make enough of a positive shift to change their life.
For others, like myself, it is a starting ground.
Use “The Secret” as a starting ground
I personally wanted to know everything. I have to tell you after 2 years of training with The Law of Attraction Training Center and 4 years as a qualified law of attraction practitioner, I still don’t know everything and to be honest I love it that way because I love that I can keep learning.
What I did next was, find out more about each individual speaker. At the back of the book, there are links to each individual speaker so that you can find out more.
Whilst I found all of the speakers interesting, there have been some that I have been drawn toward much more than others. Mostly Jack Canfield, Marie Diamond, Lisa Nichols and Bob Proctor, although at different times many of the other speakers have inspired me.
As I learned more and more, I knew this was something I wanted to be a part of and help to share with the world.
That’s when I found The law of attraction training center and began my own training.
As I mentioned earlier, I still dip into the book now and then or I’ll watch the movie. I do think it’s a super positive book and well worth reading if you haven’t yet read it.
I’d like to finish off with a couple of my favourite quotes from “The Secret”
Bob Proctor ~ What do you really want? Sit down and write it out on a piece of paper. Write it in present tense. You might begin by writing, “I am so happy and grateful now that…” And then explain how you want your life to be, in every area.
Jack Canfield ~ Our job is not to figure out the how. The how will show up out of the commitment and belief in the what.
I love The Secret. I’d love everyone to read it. Do I think everyone else will love it? NO!
Do I think everyone will be able to change their life and create exactly the life they want, using what they learn in The Secret? NO!
I’d love everyone to read the book with an open mind and then, if you’re interested in what you’ve read, take it further. Learn more, get support and use it as a starting ground like I did.
What do you think?
If you’ve already read the book “The Secret” or watched the movie, please share your own thoughts, it’s okay if they’re not the same as mine.
Wishing you a wonderful life.
