Did not live up to rave reviews and endorsements I've heard from others.
Disappointment. Little angry that I wasted credit on it.
A friend of mine shared a perspective that this is a book that will make sense to you provided certain conditions exist in your life. In her case she was dealing with depression and some other issues. At all other times it doesn't do much. I guess I can agree.
I would definitely recommend this to a friend. It helped me see how to take control of my life and the things that were happening to me.
Learning that I was in complete control of my situation.
It was a whole new way of thinking for me.
My life has changed significantly for the better after having learned of this.
No but I will.
I have listened to it 10 times now, sometimes all at once & sometimes in bits.
I thought it was very well done & it has been a life changing experience for me.
I love it! I've listened to it a few times a year! so inspirational and life changing! if you lived this book, get the Power! is even better
We listened to The Secret on a long road trip. We played it twice, and I've since referred to the book several times. I can hear Rhonda's voice when I read the book, so I recommend both.
Learning that I create my life. Noone else.
That I create my life; I can summon anything I want, providing I am positive and have unwaivering faith that I will receive it.
The story itself is absolutely absurd. The presentation is acceptable.
In my opinion, "The Law of Attraction" is crap. There may be some truth to having a positive attitude about things and life getting better, but the only reason some things happen is because GOD made them happen. Not some ridiculous law of the universe.
Positive thought habits
Jack Canfield talking about things his dad said which became part of his negative social conditioning like
It's over 4 hours so I don't listen all in one sitting. I do however listen to it repeatedly.
I like this book and I liked the movie as well.
True if believe
Everything was pretty on point, I especially like the chapter that mentions the Genie
As much of it as I can.
The secret is an awesome book- pls buy, it's life changing (if you apply)
How it theaching us to do for outselfs, and secceed.
How to be HAPPY!!
So decided to listen to this audio book as I had heard a couple of people say good things about it. As soon as I started to listen, alarm bells start going off. Yup, definitely a heap of crap. But I convinced myself to continue with an open mind. Mistake. Lasted 2 hours before turning it off and vowing to save as many others from this crap as possible. I feel significantly stupider since listening to this book...Would have benefited from continuity, intelligent writing, credible sources, contributors who DON'T sound like they are trying to sell me a vacuum cleaner, sham-wow, or magnetic pillow... If something seems to good to be true, it probably (almost definitely) is.
Rhonda Byrne could have not written this book at all and we would all be better off, and I would have my $20 back
Everyone sounded like they were from an infomercial. The 'references' and 'credible sources ' were incredibly weak. How could Oprah (or anyone who has actually read this book) give it any kind of positive review.
I am hesitant to even stretch my imagination to come up with a redeeming quality. If I was Oprah and a publisher was paying me to give this book a good wrap, I might stretch to say they tried to pick and choose bits and pieces from different religious belief systems that they liked (strong christian swing though), a bit here and there from meditation, and the the occasional bastardized quote from a famous philosopher, physicist or meta-physicist (yes that's right, physics and meta-physics are opposed. Did your google search not tell you that Rhonda?). All gently tied together in the fashion of a midday TV sales rep telling you everything will be okay if you just think happy thoughts...
Please don't waste your money.
