I have watched “The Secret” about 10 times now and always found it to be very up ifting. It is a movie that if you get nothing else out of it, you get a feeling of, “I can do whatever I want!” But today was the day that I realized what it means to me.
After one year of owning my own business and all the trials and tribulations that come with it, I was desperate. Lots of orders coming in but no money to get them all done on time. I was sitting in my office making phone call after phone call trying to come up with the funds to manufacture all my orders. I then started to feel extreme anxiety and was looking desperately at a photo of my wife and kids. I am sure there are a lot of people out there who have been in a similar situation who understand what was happening. As I looked at the photo I slowly closed my eyes and started to pray. Now I am not a huge believer in a “GOD” and never have been! As I sat there in my chair praying for an answer to my woes, I felt this feeling of numbness come over me as I started to think of certain parts of the movie as it went through my head. Parts like “you get back what you put out there”, and the part about the bills, started to run through my head at a million miles an hour. At that point I flipped my head back to that picture of my family, and I realized that for the Secret to work I have to start where my heart is – and that is my family. Without my heart being there and really wanting it then I have nothing, and that’s what the Secret means to me.
At this point I still have $30.00 in my pocket – no rags to riches here, but I have gotten richer by realizing where I need to start!
