    Have any of you guys heard of the book "The Secret"? I'm going to assume you guys have or at least can google it.

    At first I was skeptical, but I kept an open mind and used its secret and I have to say, it's working. Life is great, I'm happier than ever and business opportunities are arising (things I never thought I'd get into).

    Have any of you guys read it and think it works/bs? For the sake of things, I'll post this as a poll.

    Isn't that the book that says it's the rape victim's fault that they got raped?

    You don't even want to know my opinion on that book

    millions of kids die of famine in Africa.

    It's their f*ckin fault they can't get water and food.

    F*CK "The Secret". Biggest crap I ever seen.

    Basically it says: "You can have success without TAKING ACTION."

    BULLSHIT!

    I definitely believe in it. The only thing about it is, the fact that they marketed "the law of attraction", with this magical sounding product called..."the secret". It makes a lot of people diss it and choose to believe its something that its not.

    The basic idea is just that you should always be happy....life is too short. See the cup as half full not empty. Strive for your goals, be happy about them, and believe they will be achieved. Visualize having whatever it is you want. And last but not least be appreciative.

    I mean, why not live this way anyway? Whether you believe in "the secret", or not.

    Also, in the secret it does say that you must take action.

    So, don't listen to people who say its BS. If this is the way you wanna live, and if this is what you wanna live by and it makes YOUR life better....then do it! Don't worry about what we outsiders think. :)

    yes it works. some ppl dont understand it so they think its mumbo jumbo.
    when we are feeling good and when we are present the vibrations we set off in the universe are stronger thus causing a lot of coincidences and good luck. you have to watch it a bunch of times and read other books too like "the power of intention". the reason why most ppl think its bullshit is because they dont know how to work with it and dont stick with it. they say give me money give me this that and after 2 days they go see it doesnt work. watch the movie 5 times and then just practice being grateful for everything and be real you can just be fake about it. you really have to be real and athenticly appreciative and happy or else it wont work. then youl see everything just start falling in place.

    some ppl though will never ever get this stuff thus calling it bullshit

    It follows and waters down quantum theory, creating a piece of motivational fluff. It's missing a key piece of advice, take action. The worst thing is that the author is so full of him/herself that they disregard the importance of taking any action whatsoever.

    The "Secret" is not a secret. The teachings have been out for decades. It just has been interpreted and presented differently by people.

    One of the most famous books of the lot is "Think and grow rich - by Napoleon Hill", which I think was published back in the 1950's. Same stuff though.

    Anyway if you focus enough on something and really really want it, then your mind automatically gravitates towards it. You become more aware of things, and you tend to ask questions in line with your dominant thoughts. For every question you answer the results leads you to either another question or to your goal. So if you keep asking and answering everything, and keep focused, eventually you will have what it is you want.

    Easy to say, but hard to do, because a lot of the time there is one thing that gets in the way and it's called "Life", otherwise I'd be a multi-millionaire and you would too!

    It's no secret that a positive attitude is a good thing. Successful people all have it.

    the power of now if anyone's read it has much to do with this kinda baseline but it suggests more action be taken.

    actually it doesnt say that at all!
    in fact, quite the opposite!

    you cant apply this to kids in africa. all the secret is is telling you to have a positive attitude!
    its not your fault you cant get food, your putting the message in a context where it doesnt apply!

    its supposed to let you have a positive attitude. and believe that you are capable of taking action and finding success.
    and to never give up.
    it asks u to take action!
    the airplane man in the movie was paralyzed and ppl said he would never move again.
    he kept going and was motivated and stayed positive and he was out of the hospital within a year.

    theyve just boiled it down and made it seem magical.
    because the masses dont need to understand it before they use it.

    all i do is spend my time in the shower fantasizing about having anything/everything ive ever wanted.
    and it makes my day so much better!

    if you think the secret works, you have been fooled by great marketing.

    I will say this much, having a positive attitude is indeed a key factor to success. If you don't have any kind of confidence in what you are doing then your chances of failure are that much higher.

    I don't buy into the whole "Secret" thing. However I do agree with some of the ground principles such as staying focused on what it is you want. Well no shit, if I want something but don't direct my life/efforts toward it...it just isn't gonna happen now is it?

    Some "Secret," sounds like logic to me...but wtf do I know?

    no it never says that. thats someone interpretation. the secret is the law of attraction and it just one of many laws but a powerful law indeed

    and for the kids in africa comment.
    all those kids probley think about scarcity and how they dont have food how they are poor how they are so hungry etc. so they keep getting more of it. thats how the law works. the more you focus on something the more of it you bring. you have to be very very specific and self aware of the communication with yourself. you may think you are focused on more money but your internal dialouge may be coming from scarcity.

    i actually had it work to me after i listened to a 1 hours law of attraction audio tape 4 days ago. the same night i downloaded an ebook off here that talked about incentive sites etc and i told myself im gonna try it. sure enough somebody added me on msn 2 weeks ago and i never spoke to this person and 2 days ago he msged me asking who i was blah blah blah one thing led to another and it turned out he has an incentive site already set up and hell give it to me if i can increase the traffic.

    just think. have you ever though about someone and a couple days later they call or someone else brings them up. its all vibrations that brings thing to fruition. i could go on and on about this stuff but your best bet is to read books by "Deepak Chopra" . he knows the universe like no one else.
    once again most ppl dont get this stuff and call it bullshit
