A positive but limited read..,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Secret (Hardcover)I, like many people bought this book after hearing all the hype. I read it quite quickly and found it an inspiring read. However, I did find it a little repetitive at times, with the same point being made over and over again by different people, ie you will manifest what you think about. The basic message itself is a positive one and if we can all be encouraged to think more positively that can only be a good thing. The use of visualisation and focusing on the positive are all great tools to have as you are then more likely to be drawn to good things, be more in touch with your intuition and to notice opportunities. However, sometimes we might start out thinking we want something and then discover it isn't what we wanted afterall, so the ability to be open minded to adapt our goals and desires are also important.
If you want to make improvements to your life then this is a good place to start. However, to make long lasting changes, then I truly believe that more is required than just postive thinking, such as setting goals, taking action and developing resilience. If you want a book that helps you achieve all this, then I would recommend adding a little Serendipity to your Secret and read the fantastic Serendipity's Secret: A novel way to achieve your dreams and find the path to happiness
