'The Secret'

A Book for Life

“Whenever you think you can or think you can’t, either way you are right. (Henry Ford) ”

― Rhonda Byrne, The Secret

Some of you may or may not have heard of The Secret, but I'm sure most of you are familiar with the law of attraction. The Secret is a book that is primarily based on the law of attraction with a twist. 

The Secret goes beyond the positive thinking aspect and helps create a world where all your dreams and aspirations can come true if you truly believe. This book has helped change my perspective of life and I am eternally thankful for it. I've already decided to re-read it again and again to reinforce the teachings continually. If the law of attraction sounds like something you have been intrigued about then this book is a must read for you.

The book claims you can receive an abundance of wealth, health or success in anything if you want it. The thought of being in control of your life to such an extent is incredibly energising. This book takes you on a journey to believe and enjoy life. The teachings that are shared in this book are very insightful; with examples and real-life stories you are taken into a world of miracles. Some of the stories shared within the book are unbelievable yet presented with skills to make it attainable for all of us.

I won't repeat many of the teachings here as I know many of you would love to read it for yourself, but one that I would love to share is the teaching of gratitude. This one has been most effective for me. The idea is to be thankful to the universe for the things you already have in your life. This creates the energy of more like things coming towards you. You can repeat statements to help you feel your gratitude. For example, some of my statements were "Thank you for a roof over my head," "Thank you for a loving family," "Thank you for good health." All of these are true and I feel happy as I thank the universe for them, which in turn gives me more moments of thankfulness. 

I hope this is making sense because I know it is a lot to take in and understand if you have not read the book to begin with. Thus, I encourage you all to give this book a read and see for yourself. A friend of mine suggested this book to me and I am thankful to him for sharing this book with me. 

The book will encourage you to experience genuine feelings of happiness for things you want in your life and to believe you have already achieved them, in order to receive them. The process of it coming to you is up to the universe; your job is to put your trust in the universe, feel happy, and show gratitude for what is coming your way. Your genuine feelings will bring all your dreams come true.

The negative thoughts or words that might come out of your mouth will never again be so thoughtless; this book creates an awareness of the things you speak into your life. This awareness alone can change your life. You are in control of your own life. So many people live life feeling they have no control. They simply accept what is happening without understanding the power of the universe paired with their own mind. Make use of this power and transform your life. Whether you want wealth, health, love, or just about anything... you can get it all. 

If you are even slightly intrigued by this blog post, read the book and you will understand why I felt it was important to share this with you all.

This is the one secret I love sharing. You are in control of your own life, so why not make attract the best things into it? Your limits are in you mind not your life. Be open to what is coming, what have you got to lose? Good luck manifesting your life.
