An Objective Review of “The Secret”


An Objective Review of "The Secret"

The Secret took only a few years to become the best-selling self-help book of all time, making Rhonda Byrne world famous in the area of personal development. Before the movie and book were released, no one had ever heard of her.

But the important thing about this movie was not the person delivering the message, but the message which was delivered by over a dozen of the most well-known success coaches in the world. That message was best encapsulated in the statement made by John Assaraf: “You can have anything that you want, I don’t care how big it is.”

Shortly after that, self-made millionaire Bob Proctor introduces ‘The Secret‘ as the law of attraction and stated that everything in your life is being attracted into your life as a result of the things you’re thinking about. Whether you’re thinking about what you want or what you don’t want, you’re creating your own reality by virtue of the predominating thoughts in your consciousness.

The purpose of this review of The Secret is to help you decide for yourself whether or not purchasing and using this movie or any of these materials is worth your time and money.

The Cast and Message of “The Secret”

Probably the most credible thing about The Secret is that some of the greatest minds in personal development decided to take part in it. Among them are: Bob Proctor, author of “You Were Born Rich,” Jack Canfield, author the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” books, James Arthur Ray, Joe Vitale, John Assaraf and dozens of other people who have demonstrated the power of the law of attraction through the results in their life.

All these people claim that the same secret which has made them successful (the Law of Attraction) was used by historical figures like Leonardo Davinci, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Thomas Edison, Einstein, JD Rockefeller, Dale Carnegie and many more.

As incredible as this might sound, all you have to do is study the lives and writing of these historical figures and you’ll find that all of them held one common belief: that we could manipulate the results which we attract into our lives by means of directing our thoughts towards what we want.

All of them also believed that there was a connectedness in the universe which caused us to be linked to everything in existence. So by focusing your thoughts on something, you actually tune your mind and body into the same frequency and begin attracting energies which are consistent with what you’re thinking.

Obviously, the list of individuals who held this belief and the things which they accomplished in their lives makes it impossible to ignore the power of the law of attraction and the impact of our thoughts on our lives.

Something to Be Cautious of

Although the principles being taught in the movie ‘The Secret’ are valuable, they don’t tell you the whole story. They simply give you the three steps to the system: ask, believe and receive. They don’t tell you the how.

Yet if you study the lives of the great achievers (living and dead), even those who believed in the Law of Attraction, you’ll find that all of them have one thing in common. They all committed to the pursuit of the object of their desire with careful planning, constant persistence and a burning desire to get what they want. I don’t see anywhere that this fits into the “ask, believe, receive” instructions which are laid out in this movie.

My guess is that the people who participated in The Secret know that there’s a whole lot more to it than that and that nothing happens unless you invest action and persistence towards achieving it. As long as you keep this in mind, I think The Secret would be a great addition to your library and would help you to keep your thoughts focused on what you want while you’re busy working your plan of action towards achieving it.

So I wish you much success, prosperity and health, and that you’re able to find a way to get the great secret to work for you. Thanks for reading my review of The Secret.
