How The Secret DVD Found Me
Speaking with a new number of up & comers lately, I’m cemented in the thoughts that speaking with people is not so scary after all! These people are just like me! Wanting better things in life for themselves and for their loved ones. Every time I open my email or answer the phone, I get to speak with people, sometimes new ones, that are ‘digging’ what they’re in to. And they just want to share that with ME! How honored am I to be included in this circle of achievers. You are asking, most probably, how I got to position myself to be the recipient of such great calls and emails. I’m going to have to go out on a limb here and revert to what these and other people have been referring to… and that is the secret. No, not a secret; but, The Secret. You know, the one you’ve been hearing about… about how you attract what you think about. Well, I’m finding it to be true. I watched The Secret last summer (’07) but only after I was ‘ready to receive it’. What? What’s that? Ready to receive what?, you ask. You see, I was given a copy of that movie in December of ’06. I said to myself, “Oh, that’s nice… but” And I stashed it away somewhere with no intention of ever really watching it. Then about six months later, “it” started eating away at me. My mind started wandering to that little movie… and, oh darn, where did I put that? Well I found it, exactly where I had left it (funny how that works 😉 ) but I still didn’t put it in a DVD player. It did, however, make its way into my “this stuff is really important to me” bag which I carried to the local library every day to escape the heat of the summer. After about a week, while sitting in the library and my laptop computer plugged into their network… I thought, “Wonder what’s on that little disk that my daughter (my ‘o so wise 26 yr old daughter ) gave me last year. So I pulled it out from my bag and put it into my laptop.
OH MY GOD!!!
Why didn’t anybody tell me about this stuff until now!!!! I screamed silently to myself.
The ‘why’ was because, I simply wasn’t ready for it yet. And I knew that. I was still growing / metamorphosing inside. And I hatched. Last summer became the beginning of something I never (until then) dreamed would be me. I always thought, up until then, that I had it all together and everyone else was either screwed up or just plain lucky. I secretly harbored resentment at everyone else’s successes and happiness in life. Never truly knowing that they had already found the Secret – maybe without ever watching the DVD.
It’s True! The Secret is really merely a ‘title’ given to something to describe what it is. Like the title for a book. You never really know what the book is about, until you read it. And a lot of books you can’t put down! You’d never know that the book was so good, until you gave it a chance and put some effort and time into contemplating it. That’s what life seems to be about… contemplating. You see a song title and go, huh, but then you hear the song and you never forget that title again! It’s the same with the title of The Secret. It had to be called something didn’t it. And it really is a very good title. But oooo, there is so much more awaiting you inside. It grabs you instantly with… “This will help…” And then it goes on to describe in infinite details about how you can have anything you want in life if you will just think about what you want in life. Think about it for a minute. If you think about garbage, sex, poverty, hatred, and how bad you always have it, then guess what you are going to get? I mean, what else could you get! It only makes sense that those are the things that will be in your life… because you’re always thinking about them. Don’t like not having the good life? Then you need to stop thinking about the non-good life stuff. Think, instead, of ‘attracting’ great calls and emails into your life, and you know what? That’s exactly what will happen. I know, because I am living proof.
