My mother sells Mary Kay Cosmetics, so when she asked me to watch a video on “the secret of success”, I rolled my eyes thinking it was probably some recruitment video. But lo and behold, it had nothing to do with Mary Kay Ash’s business plan at all (although rest her soul, she probably knew the “secret”).

As we watched the video, my mother turned to me and said, “Kim, you already know the secret and didn’t know it… You wanted a new house, and you got it.” Maybe I do somewhat, but I feel one can never be too successful. So, I’ve been pondering the secret over and over by thinking positively and adding pictures of my goals to my internet start page. I’ve been adding not only monetary goals, but intangible goals as well to manifest my future.

The Secret Hardcover – November 28, 2006 by Rhonda Byrne  (Author)
This past weekend, my friend, Barb, told me she is reading a new book out entitled “The Secret” and how inspirational it is. And from what she told me, it sounded exactly like the video we had watched. Figuring I can always use more motivation, I immediately ordered a copy of the book from Amazon (and one for my mom, and one for my brother). Amazon’s editorial review explains it best…

Fragments of a Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. 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 book, you’ll learn how to use The Secret in every aspect of your life — money, health, relationships, happiness, and in every interaction you have in the world. You’ll begin to understand the hidden, untapped power that’s within you, and this revelation can bring joy to every aspect of your life.

The Secret contains wisdom from modern-day teachers — men and women who have used it to achieve health, wealth, and happiness. By applying the knowledge of The Secret, they bring to light compelling stories of eradicating disease, acquiring massive wealth, overcoming obstacles, and achieving what many would regard as impossible.

I just received my copy today. Guess I’ll retire early from the computer tonight to start learning how use the secret more to my advantage. Want your own copy? Order from Amazon.com (for the best price, I checked).
