The Secret by Rhonda Byrne unifies the core of many self-help and motivational books. It is the second best selling book, next only to Harry Potter. I've seen the movie preview, as well as listened to the unabridged audio CD, and have found it a powerful influence.
We are the most powerful transmission towers in the Universe. Our thoughts are being radiated to the world. Whatever you think about, to the degree that you believe in it, it will come true.
Can you get rich? Can you gain the love you want? The anser is yes. And the answer is in The Secret.
We are governed by the Law of Attraction. That is, like attracts like. Like thoughts, attract like thoughts.
I am not going to fail, I am going to fail. I will not be afraid. I will be afraid. I can do it. I can't do it. These are, though if you took it literally you might disagree, like thoughts.
For me, the core of this book is radiating positive thoughts and feelings to the world. Why does this work? I think it's because when you think about something and believe it, it shows in you. It shows in the way you stand, the way you move, the way you speak your words, the way you interact with other people.
Through various self-help books I've read in the past, I've found the same message imbued through all of them. The Secret captures these.
Buy this book! It's definitely worth it.
