I absolutely love the motivational dvd The Secret. As a matter of fact, since it’s first release I have recommended that my business and life coaching clients, friends and family members all make it a priority to purchase this dvd and watch it at least 2-3 times in the first 3 weeks after purchase. The reason is really quite simple. I totally believe in and have lived for the past 30 years the principle of “the Law of Attraction”. That we become what we think most about daily. However….I do have a concern that was raised AGAIN in a session with a client this week.
She was frustrated that after creating a list of all that she desired in life, in detail, and had visualized daily her “dreams becoming her reality”….and had filled her mind with motivational books and cds……that after all of this nothing had changed over the last 8 months. As a matter of fact, she felt that she was becoming depressed over her lack of progress. She asked me how, after following the steps outlined in The Secret, her life could still be the same. For the one hundreth time, I had to go into the same speech about a dvd I absolutely loved. (Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, but he’s not bringing you everything you want, on your time frame….=)……………)
“There’s a missing Secret in “The Secret”, I explained, “that was left out but needs to be discussed. While you may believe that you have followed the formula they created, the missing link is that you have not created , nor implemented any daily action steps to create the life you want. In other words, the key concept that seperates someone who wants to lose weight and someone who actually does, is that the former creates a written plan and follows it daily, while the latter dreams of doing so but has’nt quite followed through with the action needed to help accomplish the end result they desire.
While there are many steps that one needs to follow to accomplish any goal, when it comes right down to it, the most important one is ACTION. If you want to meet the man or woman of your dreams, visualize them in your life…create a list of their qualities…..and then get out there and meet people!!!…Join a dating service….tell your friends your ready to create a beautiful relationship…join a class at your church…volunteer every saturday at a charity of your choice…
This is the key to success, and the missing link that is keeping so many people from accomplishing their most important goals in life. Get off of the sidelines in life and into the game through a written action plan. I know the Secret to success will then no longer be the one thing that others know but you do not…… It’s time to create the life you want, and I truly want you to live, have and enjoy all that you desire. It’s time to “ROCK ON”…Let’s do it with action today….David
