“The Secret” is a best-selling book and movie from 2006. The basic premise of the book and movie is something called “the law of attraction”, which basically means that thinking positively will attract positive life experiences to you and get you what you want. There’s an old saying: “The Power of Positive Thinking” and The Secret is largely based on this old expression. The book was featured on Oprah Winfrey’s show twice, and rocketed to the top of the NY Times Bestseller list for three years. It has been translated to 44 languages and has made over $300 Million!
What is “The Secret”?
The law of attraction described in the book and movie propose the theory that positivity attracts positivity in the universe. Which also means that negativity attracts negativity. The book describes a three step process to achieve your dreams or goals. Ask, Believe and Receive. Basically, if you think positively, you can get what you want. If you visualize what you want, you can get it.
Does “The Secret” Help Win Lotto?
Many believe think that the ideas proposed in The Secret are ridiculous. After all, if I visualize myself winning the lotto, think I will win the lotto, and convince myself that I will win, will I win? Probably not! Me personally, I believe that it is important to have a positive outlook. I do believe your chances of success in anything are always better when you have a positive outlook. Whether it’s love, work, friends, money or family, thinking positively can only help. But just being optimistic is not enough! You still have to work hard, apply yourself, put out some effort, etc. Positivity PLUS hard work is really the secret to my success, in my opinion. Also, it’s a lot more fun to go through life with a sunny outlook, rather than thinking negatively all the time. And it doesn’t cost anything.
Next time you play the lotto, go ahead and think positively. It certainly won’t hurt your chances of winning and can only help!
