You’ve most likely heard about The Secret before, seen it in bookstores, and probably wondered what it was. The Secret is a set of rules for living your life that is sometimes seen as motivational advice. It comes in the form of books and a film series. The Secret actually comes in several different versions according to the different editions of The Secret books, but they all hold true to the same basic tenets. You must have faith and belief in things that you want and you must think about them all the time so that the universe can pick up on your thoughts and bring what you need to you. This is called the Law of Attraction. When practicing it you must keep in mind that you must always use positive thoughts. For example if you think to yourself repeatedly “I don’t want to be late for work” while driving in the morning then all universe will here it is “late for work” and you end up in a traffic jam. However if you instead think “I want to be early for work” and you’ll get there on time. Also you must know that you cannot wait for other people to affect you, you must rely on yourself. You decide to be happy or unhappy, it is your perceptions of your surroundings that determine how you will feel.
