I remember the first time I heard about The Secret – I was driving past a friend’s house and decided to pop in and say hello. I’ll never forget what he said to me: “The Secret really works; I was thinking about you and now here you are.” It was quite some time before I actually saw the movie but I was fascinated at the thought of my thoughts manifesting into reality.
If you haven’t seen the movie, or read Think and Grow Rich yet, there are three powerful steps you can take right now to apply The Secret/Law Of Attraction in your life right now. Although simple they are powerful and effective.
One of the first things you can do to maximize The Secret in your life is to educate yourself as much as possible on the subject of the Law of Attraction. Learn the very nature of the Law of Attraction and how it influences your life. Start with:
- The Prosperity Bible: The Greatest Writings of All Time on the Secrets to Wealth and Prosperity by Napoleon Hill
- Mind is the Master: The Complete James Allen Treasury by James Allen
- Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
- The Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel
- The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale
- The Magic of Believing by Claude M. Bristol
- The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles
- It Works! The Famous Little Red Book That Makes Your Dreams Come True… by R.H. Jarret
- Little Money Bible: The Ten Laws of Abundance By Stuart Wilde
- Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires by Esther and Jerry Hicks
At the core of The Secret is the nature of your thoughts. The Law Of Attraction goes much deeper than negative verses positive thought. If you truly understand the nature of thought you will be leaps and bounds ahead of those who merely think they understand the Law of Attraction.
The second step to mastering The Secret is to get a journal and begin to write. Do you know most people have no clue what their predominant thought patterns are? Nor do they even know what it is that they want.
Once you begin to journal, you begin to explore your feelings on a much deeper level. Clearing the clutter in your mind and seeing your feelings on paper is akin to a thorough spring cleaning in your home. Journaling about your goals helps you clarify what you want and encourages you to consider the why and how, not just the what. Reflecting on goals in writing continually reminds you to take the next action necessary to achieve them. They serve as a tool for identifying what you should prioritize on a daily basis, and what you should let go of. Additionally, journals give you a record of the progress you’ve made toward your goals to keep you motivated in the long slog of actually reaching them.
The third step to using the Law Of Attraction is to take small inspired action towards your goals. With your new Law Of Attraction journal you can begin to track daily every action you take that is in alignment with your goals. It’s very hard for most people to be aware of the way they spend their time. When you set a specific plan and track it in your journal you have a better chance of seeing how your week has gone, then your month and then finally your year.
So much time can pass with many of us taking the same tiresome actions that get us the same lousy results over and over. Then many people will say that the Law Of Attraction did not work in their lives but actually the Law Of Attraction DID work; it simply worked to give them more of the same conditions they were creating again and again.
The first thing everyone wants to know after watching The Secret is, “How do I use The Secret?” That’s understandable because although the movie is good and it does introduce you to the Law Of Attraction, it does not quite tell you how to properly apply it to your life. Hopefully these three steps will point you in the direction of attraction maximization. Start with these three suggestions and you’ll be ahead of the game once you get around to watching the movie!
