Let me start by saying that I do not believe in the millionaire mindset. It may be blasphemy to some, but I have watched “The Secret” and I don’t buy it. I have been successful in many businesses as well as everything else that I have done and I just don’t believe what they say. I feel that I have found the true secret to success, and the metaphysical approach described by so many “gurus” is not it. But it is close…
The Secret movie has been featured on Oprah and many other talk shows as a movie that will change your life. For some, I agree… it will change your life, but for most, it will not.
They claim, in the movie, that in order to get anything you want, all you have to do is imagine it! It teaches you to lay back in your chair, relax, and picture whatever it is you want. Whether it be true love, a smaller waistband, or a million dollars, all you have to do is imagine it with vivid detail every day, all day. By doing this repeatedly and keeping that thought in your head, you will naturally attract that desire 100% of the time. The Secret states that if you have not received your desire, you either haven’t waited long enough or you haven’t pictured the desire correctly. You have either let negative thoughts enter your head and have ruined your chance of success, or you simply have not had vivid enough thoughts focused on the desire.
The Actual Secret
As stated before, personally, I don’t believe in metaphysics. I don’t believe that by imagining your desire your brain sends out electrical pulses so strong that it affects the outcome of the universe and your desire is attracted toward you. I can argue my case as to why brain waves are so small that only extremely sensitive equipment can even measure the wave, but instead I’ll say this: There actually is truth behind the Secret, but it’s not in a metaphysical aspect.
When you envision a desire so vividly, so clearly, that you can actually taste, smell, hear, and feel it, you will naturally accept that vision into your subconscious. By doing so, you actually change your habits and functions to accomplish that vision. You take actions, whether you know it or not, that work toward the manifestation of that vision. Your habit changes, your personality changes, your speech… everything about you changes!
Sometimes your vision is strong enough to change your entire life – your daily habits, your thinking, the way you walk, talk, and act. Sometimes it isn’t. For those times that it isn’t strong enough, which will be a majority of the time, you have to take action! You have to consciously take action to make that vision come true. Make a plan yourself. Change your habits. Go out make things happen!
Making it work for you
The key here is action. That is the real “Secret”. Whether you change your actions subconsciously or through concerted effort, nothing, absolutely nothing, will change without some kind of action. Action is what separates the winners from the losers. Action is what separates the millionaires from the dreamers. Action is what changes lives.
