Comment:UK BASED SELLER SHIPS DAILY WITH UNCLIPPED DJ, SMALL TEAR ON DJ

Once known only by an elite who were unwilling to share their knowledge of the power, 'the secret' of obtaining anything you desire is now revealed by prominent physicists, authors and philosophers as being based in the universal Law of Attraction. And the good news is that anyone can access its power to bring themselves health, wealth and happiness. Fragments of The Secret have been found in oral traditions, literature, religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. A number of the exceptional people who discovered its power went on to become regarded as the greatest human beings who ever lived. Among them: Plato, Leonardo, Galileo and Einstein. Now 'the secret' is being shared with the world. Beautiful in its simplicity, and mind-dazzling in its ability to really work, The Secret reveals the mystery of the hidden potential within us all. By unifying leading-edge scientific thought with ancient wisdom and spirituality, the riveting, practical knowledge will lead readers to a greater understanding of how they can be the masters of their own lives.

Ok, to start off, i agree with some of the 'negative' points often associated with the secret.
Yes, the law of attraction and having a posotive mental attitude isn't a 'secret' at all, people have known it since the begginning of time. If you watch the film, the first couple of minutes is just rubbish saying 'the secret was buried, the seceret was lost, the secret was kept hidden blah blah blah'. I think this is stupid aswell, of course it wasn't, its just a trick to get people interested.
The second quarrel some have with 'the secret' is of the claims it makes that you can just believe you will get something, and it will come. Indeed this isn't the case, as obviously, hardwork and determination are essential to achieving your goals.
Anyway, i agree with all these points but...

These aren't important. These aren't what rhonda byrne and the secret team are trying to give you. What is truly important and inspiratinal about the secret is the message inside. After reading this book my eyes have truly been opened. When you read the quotes from the past greats; ghandi, churchill, einstein etc. You can truly see they all knew it too! Ultimately, the message is that if you have a posotive outlook on life, think posotive, be happy, nice, and grateful to and for everything in your lives, you, and indeed those around you, will be much better off as a result. This isn't to say that you can just sit there and wait for everything to come to you though, work hard, be determined, and enjoy everything you do.
Also, it is kind of like a bible in a sense, as you need to top up on it. After about a week of reading it first time, my amazing mood from it started to dip. I have found though that topping up on its knowledge does help a lot, and now i regularly refer back to it when i am having trouble. You should try it too.

I have ordered this book after a friend has recommended it to me and I truly believe it can change your outlook on life. If you actually think about what it says in this book, it will make you more aware of your own self and it might even make you a better person! I highly recommend it to anyone, and no, it doesn't make you a billionaire over night but it will make you stop and think.

DO NOT BUY this book. It is a very clever con trick. All it contains is pointless feel-good anecdotes from various famous marketing/PR Media types and I truly feel it preys on people's insecurities by telling them the can solve all their problems with a simple belief.

I have rated this book highly because people should not be put off by the fact that it is not a story, but is real thought provoking material. The messages are repeated - in different ways and throughout, so it is more a reference book to pick up now and again as we did. It may not be for everyone but give it a chance and...What if...?
