What is the Secret? I am sure that by now, you or someone you know has mentioned...or watched...or read The Secret. The Secret is in the bookstores, The Secret is on the internet, The Secret is on Oprah, The Secret is on Larry King, The Secret is everywhere. Thank goodness I heard about The Secret!
Less than one year ago, I was introduced to The Secret by my best friend who had just watched it. I immediately grabbed my laptop, clicked on www.thesecret.tv, and watched something that I had heard for the first time ever...it was life changing!
So what is The Secret? As explained by Bob Proctor, The Secret is The Law of Attraction!
From the ancient Babylonians through history, a select group of people have understood this. Everything starts with a thought. Our thoughts create our feelings, and our feelings create our reality. At first glance, it seems crazy. After some thought, it seemed The Secret really was true. After all, most people think about what they don't want, and they keep getting it. It is the few that have that positive, glass half-full mentality that things seem to go right for them. It is really nothing more than the law of attraction. Whether it is good or bad, what they think about, they bring about.
Once I was introduced to The Secret, I was intrigued to find out everything I could. I started reading book after book, and they all said the exact same thing. The Science of Getting Rich, written in 1910 by Wallace D Wattles, talks about The Secret. Lynn Grabhorn's book, Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting, talks about The Secret. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, talks about The Secret. The list goes on and on. It has been proven that the most successful, influential people of our past all believed in this one thing, The Secret.
Once I watched The Secret, I wanted to put it to the test. I realized it was very challenging to believe this way, when the majority of people did not have a clue that their thoughts were creating their life (mostly misery). In order to stay focused, I listened to The Secret every day in my car, and watched the DVD as often as I could. I retrained myself to think in this new, exciting way. I then started sharing it with others. It was amazing! We were having so much fun with The Secret, and we were starting to attract others who were also starting to believe and understand the law of attraction. Those that didn't believe or understand or want to change their lives, suddenly were not in our lives as much.
One day, while in the shower and listening to the Secret, I had an idea. I had now listened to the CD's well over 100 times, but that day, something clicked. I was listening to the part about making it fun, and acting like you were shopping from the catalog of the universe. It hit me.
I had just finished reading The One Minute Millionaire, by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert G. Allen, and had committed to being an enlightened millionaire - being able to give back a million dollars! One thing that the book said was when you have an idea, you need to act upon it. It also talked about multiple streams of income, and how the internet was a viable option.
I was also on my way that very morning to my team's house to create our visualization boards, something they also talk about on The Secret. We were all bringing magazines to cut out pictures and words of our dreams to paste on our poster board, creating our vision boards.
After hearing “shop from the Catalog of the Universe,” I thought - that is it. Where can you have unlimited access to anything and everything that you have ever dreamed of? The internet, of course! What if we had a “catalog” that people could go to, not only find what they were looking for, but then have the option to purchase it. After putting together a mastermind dream team, the Catalog of Dreams was born.
Not only has The Secret helped me realize the power of the law of attraction and the power of visualization, but it has given me the tools to believe that anything is possible.
The Secret was kept secret for many years...until now! I am so thankful for those who have shared it, and as I continue on my life's journey, I will continue sharing The Secret with everyone I know. By applying the simple techniques shared in The Secret, you too can create the life you have always dreamed of; the life which you so deserve.
