I’m sure loads of you have heard of the “The Secret”. When I first got wind of it, I immediately went hunting online to watch the movie. It’s not so much a movie but more of a documentary.
Anyway, I was hooked. I didn’t leave my laptop till it was over and felt really inspired after. It’s based on the law of attraction which states: "like attracts like," and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results.
While of course it is good to think positively, I still believe we need to work for what we want. And we gotta work hard. Be it at a job, at life, at relationships, everything requires hard work. I highly doubt that if I sat here, by some miracle I’d have more money. We have to take the first step. There’s a part in the movie that says that this one guy quit worrying about bills and debt and all of a sudden he was receiving cheques in the mail more than bills. Erm, how does that work?! Citibank is suddenly not gonna send me my credit card bill cos I believe in the secret? Erm, yeah, sure. #wishfulthinking
Many have shared their thoughts about the secret and I dunno, at the risk of sounding like a skeptic, I think “the secret” works when combined with hard work and determination. Like if your goal was to make more money, you should be positive and focus on that goal, and tell yourself that you WILL achieve it. Never let go of that thought and never doubt yourself. But at the same time, you have to think of ways that you can make more money. Sitting on the same seat at the same office doing the same thing? Sorry, but you aint gonna achieve that goal!
So, my friends, with that, I end my thoughts on the secret, and say: WORK HARD and PERSEVERE and you will see the results ;) #triedandtested
