How I came to learn about The Secret was completely by accident. A long time, close, dear friend had shared a link about The Secret. I had never heard of it and decided to see what it was all about. I read it, but it didn’t really sink in. Time had passed and something kept telling me to read more about The Secret. Easier said than done. I was on a long wait list at my local library and at the time I wasn’t fond of eBooks and wanted an actual copy. As it turned out, I put myself on a waitlist for both. I would check often and would get excited as my turn drew closer. I knew there was a movie and again, did not really put much thought into it, thinking it was available on The Secret site or an iTunes purchase. Clearly my mind was not in the right state, I will explain this more, soon.
Then it was finally my turn! I received the book that I could read directly through the library’s app. As I read it I was more and more amazed! I read how my thoughts and feelings bring things into my life, whether they are good or bad. I was in full control of my thoughts, my feelings and my life! Everything that has ever happened in my life, everything in my life I brought into it, the good and the bad. As I read and thought about it, it all made sense. Something so simple and yet I had spent a lifetime of working against myself. Over my lifetime, I realized that when I truly wanted something and I put my mind to it, I would achieve it! I also would dwell on things, negative things, I would allow others to anger me, or make me feel like I was nothing. That was the key, no one made me feel anything, I did! No one can control your thoughts, your mind, or how you feel. Only you have that power. I realized that every time I blamed someone else for something that had happened to me, I really had no one to blame but myself. I continued to read. I started to change my feelings and my thoughts. I continued to understand more and everyday I would repeat the words I had learned in the book. I thought about famous people, rich people and really finally understood that they are like they are because of how they think! Rich people, inventors, actors, etc., all of them think they can, know they can, and believe they can. They do not worry about the how’s, they just know what they want as the outcome.
