My wife and I have been talking a lot lately about positive mindset, self motivation and belief, both of which I feel are so important to success in any endeavor. She, being an avid reader, suggested I look in to the book “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne. I’ve heard mixed reviews about it and wanted to get some feedback from visitors like you. What do you think about the book? Have you read it?
The main review I heard was semi-negative – if you don’t “heal yourself” from all issues you have, you probably just don’t believe hard enough that it will happen. As many of you know, I’m a firm believer in positive power. However, I know that some things are out of our control. Health is one of those things (for the most part), and there are other things we just can’t control: the weather, our neighbors, other people’s attitudes, etc. I think the biggest thing we can control is how we react to things that are out of our control.
So, let me know if you’ve read the book “The Secret”. If you have, did you like it? Is it a good read? Thanks in advance.
Here are a few reviews I found at Amazon.com:
Oh my gosh, this was the best book ever! For so long now, I have been waiting for it to be my turn. After reading this book I didn’t realize that it was always my turn! I just had to want it and rid my head of doubt. Now all of a sudden everything is falling into place. The world would be a better place if this was required reading!
I finished reading this book in no time, I couldn’t put it down, now I am re-reading it. It is so wonderful. I have recommended it to so many people, and they can’t thank me enough for it. The book is so true, it has changed the way I think, and how I look at things. Just believe!
If you need to read anything at all about thinking positively, pick up a Dale Carnegie book. This book is hooey. Cure cancer in 3 months just by thinking?? I’d give that a one in a million chance! Between this daffy author and her crony, Joe Vitale, they are metaphysically transporting themselves to the bank, depositing money that YOU should have contributed to charity…believe me, you would feel better doing that.
The Secret unclogged my sink, aligned the steering in my Tercel and made me a dynamo in the sack, all because I imagined those things to happen! Wait, did I just give away the Secret?
More to come…
