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!!
While I like the subject matter and feel that it is important, I don't think it offers anything new, nor does it deliver it in a particularly effective or enjoyable manner. I found it very similar to parts of the movie "What the Bleep Do We Know?" Also, similar information is available from Dwyer, Chopra, Myss, and even Brian Tracy if you venture to the business section.
Really enjoyed this audio book. The production was wonderful and made it easy to listen to, understand, and enjoy. Instead of someone just reading straight through a book, it was filled with audio clips and interview sections from different people. I assume these were excerpts from the movie, but it was a wonderful audio format that others should emulate. I liked it very much. Oh yea...the message was good too. Full break down into the power of positive thinking. It has made me a more positive thinker.
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.
The Secret is, has got to be, one of my favorite Self-help books (the movie wasn't bad either). Your particular religion doesn't matter. You will most likely find The Secret in your holy writings! Belief doesn't matter. The Secret does not require your belief (well, it does, but in a different way). It works whether you believe in it or not. From ancient Sumeria and Babylon to todays most successful and influential men and women, and everywhere in between. Budda, Allah, Jehova, Jesus, the Hindu holy men. . . They all knew it, taught it. Read The Secret. Find out for yourself.
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.
I have listened to this book several times. I have the DVD and my son boght the daily teachings book for my desk at work for Christmas. It motivated me to put together a "vision board" for 2009 and has inspired me to think in a positive light and leave the negativity behind. I would recommend this book.
After listening to "The Secret" for the fist time, I was amazed at the feeling that manifested in me for the first time in my life. A very inspirational book that should be read on a regular basis to keep oneself on the correct train tracks of life. Not for all the wrong reasons but for the positive impact that one can make in one's own life and the lives of other people around you.
