“The Secret” written by Rhonda Byrne, is a self-help book published in 2006. This book attempts to emphasize the power of thoughts and their influence on our lives. She believes that the law of attraction is the answer to all our problems.
In the book, the law of attraction is defined as “like attracts like”. This means that our thoughts, positive or negative, are responsible for the positive or negative outcomes in our lives. We can attract anything they want in their lives. We are capable of drawing in health, wealth, relationships, or anything we want.
You are the most powerful magnet in the universe and the law responds to your thoughts, no matter what they are. Have you ever thought about something you were not happy about and the more you thought about it the more unhappy you felt? The law of attraction comes into play in such circumstances and it will continue to reward you with “like” thoughts.
Most people spend their days thinking about what they don’t want. That is why the law of attraction must reward them with all the things they don’t want.
Some of the lessons that you should keep and practice from the Secret by Rhonda Byrne are as follows:
1. If you can think about it in your mind you can bring it into your life
This “Secret” lesson has been mentioned several times throughout the book. Whether you want money, a job, a house by the beach, or a lover to spend the rest of your life with, all of this can be achieved through your thoughts. Whatever you choose to think will become your life experience. So whatever you think about in your mind, you can attract it in your life. Visualize yourself having all the things you desire, affirm it to the universe and it shall be yours. As you read through the book, you will find a lot of explanations so that you can use it to your advantage.
Your feelings are an excellent indicator of what you are thinking. For instance, an immediate signal about what you are feeling is when you feel down after getting bad news. Once you realize it, you will be able to change your thoughts to welcome all the things you want in your life.

2. You can change your life by changing your thoughts
When you are confused about what you are feeling, ask yourself “how am I feeling?” Once you understand what your dominant thoughts are, you can change them accordingly. It is important to understand that it is impossible to feel bad and have good thoughts at the same time. If you are feeling bad, it is because you are thinking thoughts that are making you feel bad. As you continue to feel bad and in turn, don’t make any effort to change your thoughts to feel better, you are ultimately saying it to the universe “bring me more circumstances that will make me feel bad”.
Seize all the moments that you are feeling good and you will be able to attract more good things into your life. Thus you can change your life by changing your thoughts. By thinking about positive thoughts and doing things that make you happy, you will be in a very high frequency. This will allow more positive events into your life.
3. The Law of attraction cannot perceive a “good” or a “bad” thought. Choose wisely
The Law of attraction cannot differentiate between negative and positive thoughts. Hence it is essential to attract what you want by consciously thinking about positive thoughts. The Universe doesn’t discriminate between good or bad. It simply fulfills what you command. One of the most important lessons you should follow from “The Secret” is to make it a habit to choose positive thoughts. This doesn’t entirely mean that you will ignore negative thoughts. It is essential to learn how to snap out of it. Drowning in negative thoughts will only welcome more negative events in your life.
