Why I’m reading The Secret

The Secret is one of the most talked about books around at the moment, the idea of being able to control your future purely through your thoughts is attractive to a lot of people.. me included. It’s fair to say some people are skeptical. But once you open your mind and start reading, your opinion may change..

I first heard about this book on social media, I saw that quite a lot of people were recommending it and thanking it for there successes in life. Everyone loves the idea of being able to control all aspects of there lives.. the future, the money they make, the relationships they create.. everything, because let’s be honest it’s the unknown that scares people the most.


Once I heard about this book, I knew I had to have it. So I ordered it online and it was delivered within a few days. Obviously as soon as it arrived, I started to read it. Once I had started reading, I found it so hard to put down.

The main reason for reading The Secret was firstly, because of all the good things I had heard about it. But mostly because I had come to a point in my life where I needed my thoughts to be clearer. I needed a clear vision of how I wanted my life to pan out, what career I wanted, the relationship I wanted, my source of income, my health.. among many other things, too long to list. All the important things that you don’t really think about when you are younger. I guess I just got to the age where making sure my future was exactly what I wanted became my focus, and using my thoughts to bring nothing but positive things into my life and those around me.


I’m not going to sit and say I have completely changed my life, because this is only a recent purchase for me, so putting it into practice is not the easiest of things. It takes time and patience and a lot of gratitude to appreciate the things you already have in order to bring in the things you would like to have. But this book has definitely changed the way I see things, without me even knowing it. I realised that I worried too much about the small things happening in my life and in turn created more problems for myself. I’ve always been grateful of everything and everyone in my life, but this book showed me how to use that to make my life more positive.

The Secret is gripping and is considered a very inspirational book, depending on how you interpret it. It has had a very positive effect on myself, how to process my thoughts and how to use the Law Of Attraction. I’ve recommended this book to friends and family and heard nothing but positive things and how it has helped them.


I watched the film version of The Secret a while ago, but I find the book is much easier to understand. I much prefer to read things rather than watch them, although I will watch the film again, now I have more knowledge of the book and the meaning of it.

There is so much information right from the first page of this book, so reading it once won’t do it justice. You want to make the most out of it so I would definitely read it a few more times before being able to fully understand it’s contents and how to put it into practice. Right from the first page my thoughts began to change and I realised the things I was doing wrong but didn’t even know.


I bought my book from Ebay, if you are going to do this, make sure you choose a reliable seller. It can also be bought in Tesco (UK) for £10 and Amazon for around £8. This book is worth every single penny and more, if you decide to give it a try you will understand why.

The running theme throughout this book is to ask for what you ‘want’ not what you ‘don’t want’. The law of attraction doesn’t know how to decipher between the two, so the more you focus on the negative things, (the things you don’t want in your life).. the more you attract them. I didn’t realise how much I did this just in my day to day life until I read this book. Focusing on all the negative things happening in my life and around me, just created more of the bad things I didn’t want. Because without knowing, I was attracting them through the law of attraction.


This is one of the most complex books I have ever read, and there are still parts I am working on. Trying to put into words what this book is about is quite hard as there are so many aspects to it. The best way to get use of the book is when reading, take out the most important points, instead of trying to digest every single word. There is far too much information to take in all at once. Read the book daily, once you have finished it.. read it again. This way it will constantly be refreshing your memory and make it far easier to apply to your life.

The overall meaning of this book is trusting yourself and your own mind to be able to create the future that you want, and to be grateful.. always! I know it is working for me, and does for so many people all around the world. It’s okay to be skeptical at first but give ‘The Secret’ a try, you won’t regret it.
