Want to Know the Secret to Succeeding? Here it is

You’ve probably heard about the current bestseller that’s called The Secret. It’s a book written by Rhonda Byrne. It’s all about how to succeed in both your personal and your professional life. Some form of this book has been around on the Internet for many years but it’s only come out as a physical book in the past couple of years.

Say that you want about The Secret and the various ways it’s been offered on the Internet and now in bookstores, but the main theme of the book really works. And while I would recommend that you definitely read the entire book, I am going to tell you briefly what the book is mainly about.

The main point of The Secret is that what you think is what will happen to you. In other words, if you send out positive thoughts then you will have positive things happen to you. On the other hand, if you send out negative thoughts then you will have negative things happen to you. So we all have the power to influence our futures by controlling what and how we think.

If you stop to think about this it makes sense and it has been proven to be right time and time again. How many people who are extremely successful have a negative outlook on the world? And how many people who are always being negative about everything actually become successful? The answer is none. No successful people have a negative outlook on life and no one with a negative outlook becomes successful.

But how can that be? Well, it has to do with “The Secret”. And it’s all about how you and everyone else can influence what happens in your life by simply changing your attitude.

For many people this is much easier said than done. It takes a lot of practice to stop how you’ve been thinking your entire life and to start thinking positive thoughts all the time. But over time, if you really concentrate on it, you will get better and you will learn to think positively.

To begin you want to change how you think in two ways.

The first way you can change your way of thinking is to wake-up each morning thinking that you will have a good day. Don’t let your sources of stress and your worries bring you down. Believe that you can make the day as good as possible. Sure, things might go wrong (and sometimes will) but promise yourself that you will make the best of the bad and that you will believe that things will turn out good.

The second way you want to change is by believing in yourself. Believe that you can succeed in both your personal and professional life. Believe that you are destined for great things. Because if you don’t believe in yourself, one thing’s for sure: No one else will believe in you either and then you certainly won’t succeed.

And that is the main point of the bestselling book, The Secret. Send out positive thoughts about yourself and your life and you will attract good things. Of course, there is much more to it and you should read the book to find out more. But know that if you can change the way you think and feel then you will be able to change your life too.

    I’m sorry, but The Secret is ridiculous.

    Sure, it has some good ideas but the book seems to suggest some metaphysical, psychic or otherwise paranormal reason why thinking positively will bring you success.

    Of course enthusiasm, open-mindedness and optimism will help improve your life! You’ll be happier with what you have, people will like you better and you’ll be more likely to notice and sieze opportunities that come along. That’s no secret, pardon the pun.

    But the idea that putting your thoughts out to the universe will cause a reaction in the universe itself is both absurd and insulting to those who succeed because they earn success.

    If the point of the book is to trick fools into following good advice (that might otherwise sound like work), then so be it. But the fairy tale explanations in this book feel insulting. I certainly don’t attribute my own successes to dumbly smiling at the world.
