I was given the opportunity to do a sponsored review on The Secret. It piqued my interest because the description mentioned that it was featured on Oprah, Larry King Live and the Ellen DeGeneres show. It also included a blurb about how everyone is talking about it. Well, never the one to be left out of the loop (I've never heard about The Secret before) I decided to surf the internet and see what the whispers were all about.
From what I've gathered, it's the latest new age philosophy on how to get everything you've ever wanted. That's right – love, health, MONEY – all yours for the taking.
Actually, it's all yours for the thinking.
According to the book's contributors, the Law of Attraction (ie. You get what you think about; You manifest your own destiny), is The Secret to a rich and fulfilling life. They claim that it's scientifically proven. You want that promotion? Visualize yourself getting it. You want to be wealthy? Keep dreaming and you'll get there. Want to be thin? Well, you get the picture.
Personally, I don't buy it. I've been visualizing a bigger bank balance since I opened the darn account and it never fails to stay about the same, lol. Oh well, I guess it can't really hurt to think positively . . . "someone reading this will make a donation to my account . . . someone will make a donation to my account . . . "
If you'd like to learn more, check out Home of The Secret.com It's a well designed site where you can purchase related items like the book or the DVD. You can also watch a trailer or read up on some of The Secret's self-proclaimed Teachers.
I'll leave you with this thought: "A life well-lived" is defined by you.
