What is the secret within “The Secret”?

The Secret

First of all, if you haven’t seen the movie ‘The Secret’ then I suggests you watch it as it will have a huge impact on how you think, especially if you are new to the concept. However, there is one HUGE part of the secret which is left out, which I suspect could be because it would affect the sales of the film and its associated books. I will come to that later.

The idea of having positive thoughts to bring things into your life is not a new one, and in fact has been documented throughout the centuries by visionaries and ancient tribes alike. The idea was also popularised in the 20th century by people like Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich) and Norman Peale (The Power of Positive Thinking).

I have read all the books mentioned above and many others on the topic of positive thinking, manifestation, cosmic ordering and also quantum physics. Now that I think I have a good handle on what the ‘secret’ is, I notice it popping up in various real life examples and stories from successful people, whether they are aware of it or not themselves.

First of all, I want to make clear that the movie The Secret does overstep the mark somewhat by implying that if you just think of what you want to appear in your life, it will just magically appear out of nowhere. In my experience, this hasn’t been the case.

The crucial part that is often is glossed over, is you actually have to do the work that is required to achieve the thing that you want….shock horror! For example, if you want to become a successful author, do you think that will happen if you just sit in your room having positive thoughts…without actually ever writing a book?

At the end of the day, if you want to be successful at anything, then you will need to work hard at it. However, there are two parts to the secret which I feel are crucial to your success

1) If you are pursuing a dream of yours while holding the thought that it is inevitable you will reach your goal, then you will be happy to put in the 110% effort required to do so. If on the other hand, you approach something half-heartedly while thinking “I’ll give it a go” or “I’ll have a stab at it”, then I almost guarantee you will give up before you get there.

2) a. This is crucial, and this is the common theme I have spotted coming up again and again in various books and teachings. When you are thinking about what you want to manifest and achieve, you have to think of it in the present tense as if you are already in possession of what you want.

2) b. This is equally important. When you are picturing what you want (in the present tense), then you need to conjure up the emotion of how that would feel if you had that thing right now. The emotion needs to come from the heart.

For Example:

Say that your goal was to make £10,000 per month income. First, you need to sit down and make a plan of how you are going to do that. One of the easiest ways is to look at how others have achieved this, and see if you can model yourself on them and their business model.

Next, you need to write down in a note book twice a day (once in the morning and once in the evening) the goal that you want to achieve, e.g. I make £10,000 every month by selling products via my website. Again, it is crucial that as you write your goal, you want to experience NOW how that would feel if you had that money coming into your account every month.

The combination of these things will assure that you take the action necessary and done in a way of feeling like you are already successful. This is why people will often by an expensive, sharp looking suit, because when they wear it, it gives them a feeling of already hitting the big time. This in turn puts out very strong emotional waves from your heart, which has been proven scientifically to be a much more powerful transmitter of signals than the brain.

If you don’t believe the way you think can affect your body and surroundings, just look at how people have been able to heal themselves through positive thoughts, and conversely have made themselves ill though negative thinking resulting in stress. In fact, the word disease is made up from dis-ease…in other words, not at ease.

Don’t just try this for a few days though and then give up if you don’t see anything happen, instead make it a daily routine, a way of life and then if you put enough consistent effort, the world around you will simply have to give up and give you want you desire.
