The Secret (The Secret, #1) by Rhonda Byrnethis website is too kind. one star means didnt like it. I hate, hate, hate this book with absolute passion. sorry if you like oprah but she seriously did the world a disservice by recommending this book. apparently there is a dvd also that i dont even think i could stomach. so heres the concept behind The Secret. You can attract good things to you through your good thoughts. Ok, Im on board with that. It has worked for me. Ooh, I already knew the Secret! too bad I didnt use it to make millions like this chick! But no, it goes further. You attract bad things to you through your negative thoughts. Well, negative thoughts are pretty useless, so I can see benefit in trying to decrease or eliminate them. And one time (true story) I did get robbed while traveling after worrying about it for 3 weeks. BUT. There is no gray area with this one. According to the author, people who are raped, killed, maimed, tortured - they all bring it on themselves with their negative thoughts. The people in Darfur should be thinking here comes the food, there go the guns. The book goes on to say that weight management is simply a matter of thinking thin and not looking at fat people (for real), that if you have a stack of bills to pay you should instead picture checks coming in, that you can have everything you want through visualization, such as your hands on the steering wheel of your car, and that you can cure your cancer watching funny movies. There is a weak chapter at the end about how you can use your Secret powers for the common good, like world peace, but why would you want to waste it when you can be driving your new Hummer? I would go so far as to say that this book is not only BAD but it is DANGEROUS. It promotes the self-absorbed, materialistic, shallow outlook of predominantly rich white people to the exclusion of the rest of the planet - while managing to blame them for their problems and justify those in possession of the Secret for not using their visualized wealth to promote social change. Aah, brilliant. genius. avoid this book. do not give money to this woman and her brilliant marketing pyramid!
Read in: 4 minutes Favorite quote from the author:. Or have you ever set an outrageous goal, never looked at it again, and later realized you did indeed accomplish it? This once happened to famous talk show host Oprah Winfrey. She read a book called The Color Purple , and immediately recognized herself as destined to portray one of its characters in a big Hollywood movie. This manifested even more when she got a random call to audition for a secret movie, which turned out to be… The Color Purple. Right then, she received the call from Steven Spielberg. That was in
The passing of her father was only a part of the difficulties Rhonda experienced during a very difficult period in her life. Though things seemed very bleak, Rhonda found inspiration and a new zest for life, in one of the writings of Wallace Wattles. From this reading, Rhoda came to believe that she had stumbled upon the great secret. She had the burning desire to share the secret with the world. Thus she moved to America, with the idea of sharing this message by means of making a movie. This secret is the law of attraction, and by the use of connections, she brought the film into reality.
