“The Secret’s Secret” – by Leaders

Elvis Elvis

Some time ago, as most students of Personal-Development are aware, a movie and book were introduced into mainstream society called “The Secret.”

For many, this was the first public appearance by a topic of self improvement. Within the movie were “heavy hitters” in the industry who verbalized the concepts surrounding what many believed to be the KEY to unlocking all that one wished to manifest in their life.

For those who have not seen it…I would suggest doing so with one caveat…

Keep an open mind to its ideas and parallel that thinking with a grounded, real-world perspective. I will explain this idea a little later…

A Readers Digest view of this concept was that if one used the principles contained within the “Law Of Attraction”, they could bring what they most desired into their life. That law is further explained by saying that what one thinks about consistently, could be “attracted” to them.

While this concept may have worked in some instances, I feel that this “LAW” is missing a critical component. Of the many posts and blogs I have read on the Law of Attraction, this component is truly the “KEY” to bringing in that abundance.

OK…here is the Secret to “The Secret”…

Action…

While the mind portion of the equation requires you to THINK about what you would like, we need some ACTION to accompany it. Many followers of this philosophy became disappointed when the “think about it, and you will get it” idea didn’t quite produce results.

As most regular readers of Leaders’ articles know – my vision of self-improvement concepts remains grounded and focused toward what will produce results. While many people like to be entertained with an idea that will give them what they want with a minimum of effort, I think they were somewhat misled.

There is no question that attraction is a good thing and is a working Law. The most common explanation I have heard is – suppose you are looking to buy a new car…a Ford Mustang. As you drive around town doing your errands, you tend to notice more and more – all the Ford Mustangs on the road.

These cars and your mind are now…attracted – so to speak.

Now for you to go and manifest this car is going to simply require more than simply thinking about it night and day. It will require action in some form.

The majority of people’s major goals – more money, better health and relationships, etc. are big, life-changing, and certainly attainable…

…with some action.

This action could be a side business to make more money – a physical fitness program to better your health, and so on.

I feel that you can learn something from everything and everyone – but couple this mind exercise in attraction with some focused work and action to bring what you most desire into your sights…

Till next time…
