It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. It has been understood by some of the most prominent people in history: Plato, Galileo, Beethoven, Edison, Carnegie, and Einstein, along with other renowned inventors, theologians, scientists, and great thinkers. For the first time, all the pieces of the Secret come together in an incredible revelation that will be life transforming for all who experience it. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want. You will learn how to use the Secret in every area of your life. You will hear from modern-day teachers - men and women who have used the Secret to achieve health, prosperity, relationships, and happiness. They share their incredible stories of using the Secret to eradicate disease, acquire massive wealth, overcome obstacles, and achieve what many would regard as impossible. Through them, you will begin to understand the hidden, untapped power that is within you, and the true magnificence that awaits you.
I have been listening to this pretty much every day. And to see the changes that have been happening are amazing. If your a negative person that is not open to change and not ready to make a change your not going to get it. If this is the first self help book you have ever read I would suggest listing to it everyday until you begin to understand. This book is for the people that already have a good grasp and understanding of positive thinking and the law of attraction. For me this book actually taught me how to use everything I already knew.
Be Open Minded.
I think that if you're an open minded person, you'll take something good out of reading/ listening to this. I felt that it was motivating and inspiring. If you tend to view things in a negative light listen to it, and see if anything changes. The worst that could happen is that nothing changes and you're out a little bit of money. I've been listening to it on my way to and from work, and over the past two months my life has changed for the better. I'm not nearly as stressed about things I used to stress over because I pushed the fear about whatever my stressor was out of my mind, and focused on what I wanted. I had an influx of money, and for a month straight any opportunity I pursued had the outcome I wanted. It is a bunch of ideas about how to achieve success jumbled together, but I think thats what I liked most about it. I liked hearing all of these different peoples stories on how it worked for them, and what you can do for it to work for you. This is a self-help book, so obviously what you put into it is what you'll get out of it. I think that the people who claimed it didn't work and thought of it as a waste of money, didn't go into it completely open minded or willing to change, they expected magic. They must have interpreted the book to work miracles just by reading it, and that's not how it works. Any self-help book requires you to take action, and this one is no different.
Do not drink the kool-aide!
In this book, Rhonda Byrne strangles logic, perverts quotes from respected historical icons, and horse-whips a team of marketers to convince you that all of the great people of the past knew a 'secret', that she will now humbly bestow onto you. This secret has cured cancer, conquered nations and most important of all, sold lots of self-development books. This scathing review I give of this book is in direct proportion to the amount of offense I took to this books claims. The real secret I think Rhonda Byrne holds from everyone is just how she is able to convince her readers that life is a plagiarized version of Cinderella: All you have to do is sit quietly and endure any troubles you have in life, and if you keep a positive attitude, magically, things will get better. Trying to tell someone that the "secret" Rhonda Byrne made up isn't real, is like telling a five-year-old that Santa Claus doesn't exist: no matter how you approach it, It just plain doesn't end well. This work of fiction clumsily provides false hope for the truly hopeless.
