Focus on What You Want and Not What You Don’t Want – The Secret

I don’t know about you guys, but I never really followed all of the hype for the movie “The Secret” when it came out in 2006. But now that I use Netflix, I decided to add the movie to my list and got it over the weekend to watch.

IMDB gives the following synopsis for the movie:

The Secret is a feature length movie presentation which reveals The Great Secret of the universe. It has been passed throughout the ages, traveling through centuries… This is The Secret to everything – the secret to unlimited joy, health, money, relationships, love, youth: everything you have ever wanted. All the resources you will ever need to understand and live The Secret. The world’s leading scientists, authors, and philosophers will reveal The Secret that utterly transformed the lives of every person who ever knew it… Plato, Newton, Carnegie, Beethoven, Shakespeare, Einstein.

I think that is a pretty accurate description. What is “The Secret” then you are wondering? The Secret is taking advantage of the Law of Attraction and learning how to harness the power of it for your betterment. The Law of Attraction is the secret to the world and everything that you could want, which is what this movie tries to convey to you. Although not every detail and aspect of how to use the Law of Attraction to your benefit is unveiled in this movie, it is a great starting point to learn about it and see how you can benefit from it.

The movie breaks down into the following sections:

  1. The Secret Revealed
  2. The Secret Made Simple
  3. How To Use The Secret
  4. Powerful Processes
  5. The Secret To Money
  6. The Secret To Relationships
  7. The Secret To Health
  8. The Secret To The World
  9. The Secret To You
  10. The Secret To Life

From watching the movie, you can pick up many different ideas about how to use the Law of Attraction and what kind of changes you can make in your daily life to make your relationships, wealth, health, and yourself better. However, one of the main takeaways from the movie is to focus on what you want and not what you don’t want. This is illustrated many times throughout the movie with different examples such as someone who puts all their energy in focusing about how they do not want to be poor instead of focusing on how they are going to be rich and how they are going to get there. By focusing on not being poor, you are still focusing on the concept of being poor. This in turn does not help you become rich or wealthy because you are not focusing on that. Another example from the movie is to not be anti-war but to be pro-peace. Don’t focus on the war, focus on creating peace.

The best part of utilizing The Secret the experts say is that not matter what people focus on and no matter how much people get (either in their relationships, their health, or their wealth), there is always enough to go around. The worry of some people is that everyone used the Law of Attraction to their benefit than there eventually would not be anymore to go around, but that’s not true at all – there is more than enough to go around for everyone.

So, as you go into your business and your lives, be sure to focus on what you WANT and not what you don’t want. Focus on getting that next client, making your next $10,000 or $1,000,000. Focus on being healthy, seeing yourself as an active person and it will happen.

I know it has been a while since the movie came out, but has anyone else seen it? And what did you think of it?

    I only managed to finish half of the movie before I started dozing off. Forgive me, I am not really into this kind of self-help movie. Before watching the movie, I have already finished reading the book, so perhaps me dozing off is an isolated incident.

    I think it is inspirational, there is already prove that the law of attraction works, I think there are some testimonials from real people for the book. It will certainly help some people out, while for those who don’t bother to apply the techniques, it will still be an entertaining read.

    I am trying to get other new books which try to respond to the buzz of The Secret or are modifications of what is being written in The Secret regarding the Law of Attraction.
