I don’t actually own a copy of ‘The Secret’, nor have I read it, but I think I get the concept behind it: Think positive thoughts and focus on your goals, visualize yourself reaching those goals in the future, and eventually they become part of your reality.
It really is that simple.
Just think it, believe it, and it will happen.
As an example, last night before I went to bed, I visualized that I would not die in my sleep and I would be here tomorrow.
And what do you know?
Now it’s tomorrow, and I’m still alive.
Then this morning, I visualized myself eating eggs, enjoying them, and not feeling hungry anymore.
And then that happened.
I know. Crazy.
I tell you, ‘The Secret’ is powerful stuff and not to be messed with.
In fact, I’m using it right now. You see, I just paused and visualized you coming to this website and reading this. And then, in my mind’s eye, I saw you pulling out your wallet, emailing me your credit card number, expiration date, and CVV security code, and telling me to buy whatever I want with it: This one’s on you.
And then I e-mail you back and say, “No, no. That’s much too generous. I couldn’t.”
And then you would e-mail me and write, “I insist.”
And then I would get that e-mail and think, “Well, if you insist. I don’t want to offend you or anything…”
And then I would buy some airline tickets to Fiji, two weeks in a luxury oceanside cabana, and a new bathing suit.
And then I’d buy you some flowers – and I wouldn’t cheap out like I usually do and get the ones that are delivered by UPS and then you have to assemble them yourself. No. This time I’d get the good ones.
Because you deserve the best.
