    If you don't want to read my story on this just skip to the bottom green text.

    Alright i havent really seen a thread about this yet and a little bit curious ..
    i'm sure most of you have seen the secret or heard about it one way or another .. and i'm curious if anyone has actually put it to use and seen results? heres a little story on how i came across and put it to use .

    I woke up one morning ... noticed i needed new shoes .. my clothes were getting old .. ( back in this time i was on a crap pc with like half a gig of ram and a butt load of viruses .. ) and was tired of living like this i didnt have a job .. ( still living with my parents ) . went to the living room and thought i'd watch a movie .. at the very bottem of the stack of dvd's we had was a ( bootleg copy :p ) of the secret .. so i thought i would pop it in .. after i understood the concept i was a bit skeptical . .. so i used some of the things the mentioned .. i made a vision board of everything i want .. i had a new laptop.. 20,000 in the bank .. new ipod .. pretty girlfriend etc.. etc.. and would vision these things every morning. and every night.. and for the first 2 weeks nothing really happend , i didnt know how in the hell i was going to make any money .. i didnt want to work at a pizza place , i was just some high school student with a lot of low self esteem .. so after checking online to see if there was some way i can make money i decided to make a youtube account and hopefully get enough subscribers to become a youtube partner and make some decent money.. that failed.
    i searched for new ways to " cheat " and get a lot of subscribers .. i saw some video of a guy who said something about blackhat methods for getting a lot of views on one video .. so i googles " blackhat method " ... and little did i know i would run into black hat world .. i made an account and read a lot of info .. i ran into e-whoring and started to make great profits .. long story short .. i got everything that was on my vision board + more within 3 months after posting it on my wall .. Now that its 2010 .. my vision board has 100,000 dollars .. and a bunch of other "big things " ..
    and what i'm trying to say is IT Works .. and for those who havent seen it watch it .. by this time next year i hope i can say i achieved everything thats on my vision board again.

    So if anyone here has actually tried the secret / law of attraction ... with fail or success post it here .

    I heard of something similar in Napoleon Hill's "The Law of Success", but I haven't seen the one you mentioned before ... Where can I find this?

    i have a million stories about the law of attractoin and how it worked for me. ppl think you just sit on your ass and its suppose to work. it works best when you strongly belive that you will get what you set out to and put forward action.

    i have a real good audio set that gets more indept with the law of attraction.

    EDIT I have it uploaded here

    I guess you could say I'm "into" metaphysics (thought creates reality). I have books by Louise Hay, Doreen Virtue, Mary Baker Eddy, etc etc and CIM.

    But nothing pisses me off more than "The Secret". I see it as watered down materialistic and find it deeply insulting. Even though it is a best seller:

    1) It is full of misquotes. Hard to believe it got the coverage it did.

    2) It encourages generalised thinking (which by nature disables critical thinking - dangerous. You need critical thinking to make good decisions).

    3) Compassion is left by the wayside. Dying of cancer? Your two year old only son kidnapped and stabbed to death? YOU manifested it! (unfortunately can imply blame or excuse those around the person of helping - ie FUCKED UP).

    4) Probably the saddest of all is that the magical thinking promoted in the secret doesn't always put food on the table, doesn't help you get a job unless....

    ....you take some kind of action. When I first saw The Secret being released I was really excited b/c this is what I'd been saying all along...or so I thought. I also thought that more enlightened people would lead to a more spiritual community but this was not the case. Instead I saw people become disconnected from reality and fail to take action which would have made their lives better in the long run. Then if they don't succeed they and folks around them comfort each other by attributing their failure to the time not being right (WTF?) or them not doing the right affirmation, having enough faith, the right intention etc.

    People who agree with me, and I suspect would also tell you The Secret was a brilliant marketing exercise right down to the all important title:

    Blair Warren, viral marketer
    Dave Lahkani, IM, and cult expert (VERY interesting)
    Kevin Hogan, PhD, covert hypnosis, influence and persuasion expert

    Google their name + "the secret" and find out what they say. Then burn the F. book.

    :D law of attraction is what I study not because of "the secret" but because it is what makes me happy.........if something makes you happy than go for it........right?!!!
    I view the movie as paid programming for the study of the law of attraction.

    The Secret saved my life!, December 4, 2007
    By Ari Brouillette[​IMG]
    Please allow me to share with you how "The Secret" changed my life and in a very real and substantive way allowed me to overcome a severe crisis in my personal life. It is well known that the premise of "The Secret" is the science of attracting the things in life that you desire and need and in removing from your life those things that you don't want. Before finding this book, I knew nothing of these principles, the process of positive visualization, and had actually engaged in reckless behaviors to the point of endangering my own life and wellbeing.
    At age 36, I found myself in a medium security prison serving 3-5 years for destruction of government property and public intoxication. This was stiff punishment for drunkenly defecating in a mailbox but as the judge pointed out, this was my third conviction for the exact same crime. I obviously had an alcohol problem and a deep and intense disrespect for the postal system, but even more importantly I was ignoring the very fabric of our metaphysical reality and inviting destructive influences into my life.
    My fourth day in prison was the first day that I was allowed in general population and while in the recreation yard I was approached by a prisoner named Marcus who calmly informed me that as a new prisoner I had been purchased by him for three packs of Winston cigarettes and 8 ounces of Pruno (prison wine). Marcus elaborated further that I could expect to be raped by him on a daily basis and that I had pretty eyes.
    Needless to say, I was deeply shocked that my life had sunk to this level. Although I've never been homophobic I was discovering that I was very rape phobic and dismayed by my overall personal street value of roughly $15. I returned to my cell and sat very quietly, searching myself for answers on how I could improve my life and distance myself from harmful outside influences. At that point, in what I consider to be a miraculous moment, my cell mate Jim Norton informed me that he knew about the Marcus situation and that he had something that could solve my problems. He handed me a copy of "The Secret". Normally I wouldn't have turned to a self help book to resolve such a severe and immediate threat but I literally didn't have any other available alternatives. I immediately opened the book and began to read.
    The first few chapters deal with the essence of something called the "Law of Attraction" in which a primal universal force is available to us and can be harnessed for the betterment of our lives. The theoretical nature of the first few chapters wasn't exactly putting me at peace. In fact, I had never meditated and had great difficulty with closing out the chaotic noises of the prison and visualizing the positive changes that I so dearly needed. It was when I reached Chapter 6 "The Secret to Relationships" that I realized how this book could help me distance myself from Marcus and his negative intentions. Starting with chapter six there was a cavity carved into the book and in that cavity was a prison shiv. This particular shiv was a toothbrush with a handle that had been repeatedly melted and ground into a razor sharp point.
    The next day in the exercise yard I carried "The Secret" with me and when Marcus approached me I opened the book and stabbed him in the neck. The next eight weeks in solitary confinement provided ample time to practice positive visualization and the 16 hours per day of absolute darkness made visualization about the only thing that I actually could do. I'm not sure that everybody's life will be changed in such a dramatic way by this book but I'm very thankful to have found it and will continue to recommend it heartily.

    I base my life around the Law of attraction and I have loads of storys, that I could tell you, but there are to many to list, I came across Abraham Hicks and that help me understand it loads more, but it is not just believe and it will happen you need to start the process off and then take it from there. I have a lot of the Abraham videos and I would recommend watching them, they are worth it and will help you.

    I second the motion, once i saw the video "the secret" at that point in time i was broke, and I lived in what u would call the hood, I figured I had nothing to lose by actually trying the the "law of attraction" let's just say, I never looked back check the thread below

    The secret shows you you the bases of it, but Abraham explains it in so much more detail.

    I agree. I believe Ester and Jerry Hicks are very good at what they do. For my own reasons I tend to believe the whole "Abraham" thing is a marketing gimmick. But the Hicks know they're shit.

    Ya bro go nuts. Nobody describes it like they do. Good things always happen to me when i listen to these tapes. It builds it more in your subconscious.

    Its audio you listen while u work and shit

    The secret is bullshit. New age philosophy entwined with occult beliefs.

    Writing ideas down, getting off your ass and making them happen is the cause for this success, not metaphysics playing a role on how our life works.

    Naw son. You lack a high level of awareness. I know because you think its bullshit. Raise your awareness level and you will see how things just fall into place when you work with the universe

    Awareness level? You just need a crutch in your life to get you off your ass. Stop depending on 'the secret' to accomplish something in your life and start taking responsibility for your laziness.

    People depend on this self-help bullshit and it gets them nowhere. I can guarantee you that more people find this a failure than success and it has nothing to do with their so-called awareness level.

    Lazy??? Buddy you dont know me, u dont know what kind of missions Im running on the net nor how much money am I making. 98% of the ppl dont get this shit or use it to try to get a new purse or a car. Law of attraction is just 1 law. There are 100's of laws.

    You can say whatever you want to say but its all coming from someone that hasnt really studied this so he doesnt know what hes talking about.

    Also it is aware that you hear one thing and then add your own meanings to it in order to prove a point your trying to make in your own head.

    Go monetize some gay porn videos or something

    brian tracy + jay abraham + secret + bob proctor = Genius

    I have been using the law of attraction for 2 years now and I have not looked back since then, I have made more success in the past 2 years than all my life (maybe because I reached my legal age 2 years back)

    On the top of my monitor I have an index card that states: "Implement" "Action"

    Action works. No need to cloud something so simple with a trademark or hype.

    The secret = marketing hype for dummies. It comes from the positivist movement of the mid-1800's. It's basically a very minor concept spawned from western occultism.

    Action = Success

    According to the Harvard school of business, the greatest determinant of success is how fast one goes from idea to implementation.

    Most people sit on ideas and never take action.

    Secret MEHHHHHHHHH


    For peace sake, I'm glad that you guys have found value in this concept...
