Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I come from a very different background, I am a Muslim and I am fascinated by the book.
I believe this magnificent work is a convergence of what has been revealed so far from what is known. Everybody who was exposed to self improvement was familiar with the bits and pieces that were shared here and there, things like how faith or positive thinking can make a difference.
But here we are, with the Secret revealed in its grandeur.
Interesting idea, but not presented with much basis in fact. Redundant in its presentation and a bit droll in content. The aggressive focus on material wealth was shallow and a bit kitchy.
I agree with the content of this book in most ways. I think our minds do in fact create our lives. However, I think it is a waste to focus that power on gaining material possessions, as seems to be the focus of this book. There must be something more useful than stuff (houses, cars, and bikes, as suggested in the book) to manifest in ones life.
After listening to this book I purchased it also in paperback. A great book for inspiring you to think of your daily actions and how they reflect on not only your outlook but how others view you. Great for getting you back on track to a more positive way of life.
This book has changed my life in such a short amount of time that I wish that I'd found it sooner! Sure the law of attraction has been around for years but it wasn't until I found it in the format that Rhonda Byrne has put it in that I actually UNDERSTOOD it, the implications and was able to APPLY it. It's all about timing and being open to it and I finally found the thing thats been missing in my life. I am listening to this book regularly as well as watching the DVD because I truly believe immersing myself in this philosophy and life practice will effect the change I've been needing in my life. If you haven't gotten this yet. Do yourself a favor!!
I think it gives some wonderful suggestions on positive thinking, gratitude and visualization. I wish it focused less on material wealth and more on relationships, health and other things that bring us happiness.
This book was a severe disappointment. I'd heard great things about it from many people, however when I read it, it didn't tell me anything new. Of course you "attract" like people and situations to you. Ordinary people have known that for thousands of years. If you have to listen to this book listen to about the 1st hour, after that it just repeats itself. No new insights are gained.
On a positive note, the presentation of this book is amazing. The music is very nice and it does start out making you feel like this is going to give you the ultimate key to happiness. Ultimately, it does not.
What a wonderful and refreshing view of what is actually achievable in this life. I am a genuinely upbeat person who expects and receives the best life has to offer - this audible takes my optimism and up beat nature and enthusiam to dizzy heights. It is anchored in a lovely spiritual and dare I say biblical underpinning. On first listen I was a little critical of the cheesy Americanisms of some of the speakers (apologies to Americans). My advice is - "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water" - stay open to and listen to the message. So good to hear an Australian woman breaking through with such a strong and revolutary message. Thank you Rhonda for reinterating a message I received at age 21 and forgot. This audible came along and reminded me with passion that I can have and deserve to have what I desire.
I grew up in a very religious environment but personal spirituality was not really discussed. This book is a great way to really help you analyze the way you think and the thoughts that you have and help you make an overall change in the way you look at things. It's not rocket science by any means but its definitely an eye-opening book that has the information in it to truly change your life and help you react to life's situations. Its helped me out in every aspect of my life and I find it important to listen to bits and pieces of the book every day or so. If you are like me and were a negative person expecting the worse out of every person and every situation, it can be challenging to change but it's doable. I highly recommend this book to entrepreneurs and other business people as well as mothers. Its definitely worth the time and money and I believe that everyone that has an open mind will benefit greatly from the teachings of The Secret.
This book is uplifting and inspirational. I have thoroughly enjoyed The Secret and I've been practicing the techniques on a daily basis. The techniques are easy, fun and they don't cost anything! The Secret is priceless! Thank you Rhonda Byne.
