The Secret || By Rhonda Byrne

Year of Publication:2006
Genre:Non-fiction, Self Help, Law of Attraction

This one was a reread for me. The Secret was my first introduction into The Law of Attraction a number of years ago. As time has passed, I’ve learned that it has done wonders to serve as a reminder on how I think about life in general, and my life specifically. I tend to want to open it mainly to jog my memory and also for its simplicity.

I’ve since learned that it is not the bible on the subject – I do not think it purports to be, but it is definitely a good place to start for a beginner. This tune around though – perhaps owing to my own journey on the subject, I did feel its simplicity a whole lot more, and perhaps now I’ve officially outgrown it.

Truly speaking, how we think and feel about life certainly goes a long way in how we experience and navigate it – ‘as a man thinks, so he is’ – I think that’s the ultimate message in this book, one I will continue lifting from its pages.

We are the sum total of the things we allow to breed within us – we are so powerful that those things we give the most attention to become manifest in our lives.

The Secret for me is that we can choose what those things are. We can shape our lives by controlling how we think and feel, even as we remain human and prone to those thoughts and emotions that make us so.
