The essential message of The Secret is to guide one to the understanding that the key to unlocking your vast, unlimited potential is buried inside of you. The astounding worldwide attention started first by word-of-mouth and it’s circulation is nothing short of a miracle. In all actuality it is just the Law of Attraction put into the Law of Action. Whether you are for or against these principles as presented in the documentary matters not. Like the ebb and flow of the tides, the rise and set of the sun, the downward pull of gravity, they just are, whether you choose to believe or not.
But the paradox is that most of those who “get it” have known about this secret law, I’m willing to bet, most of their life even if they didn’t have a title for it. Then there are many more who will be briefly inspired for a few days or months then return to the blame game or the next latest fad, relying on their television to tell them what to do next.
You see The Secret has never been a secret. The obscurity in large part is just man’s inability to first look within himself and second to act upon his answer. Do you know why most people will still not experience lasting joy and happiness in their life? Not because of the elusive Law of Attraction but because of what I like to call the Law of Action.
You can give people money, valuable information, a road map to success and still they will get lost, quit or not even try to find their way. If you don’t believe me just go to your local library or bookstore and check out the self-help and financial sections.
What is the difference between a successful person and a failure? It’s certainly not one’s better abilities, ideas or education. It is simply the Law of Action, the courage to take a calculated risk on one’s self and put his idea’s into action.
How can you stop living your life like a deer caught in headlights and start living life knowing you are meant to be happy, healthy and abundant? Here is a checklist of 7 great Law of Action tips:
Get happy… You want happiness then you must attract it. Find ways to lift your mood. Nobody really cares about that stuff (drama) you carry around inside except you. It’s time to release it. Feel good now about where you want to be tomorrow.
Get quiet… You need to make room in your busy schedule for some me time, some quiet time. Learn to be at peace with yourself and it will spread to all areas of your life.
Get serious… Do you keep losing the same weight over and over again? Do you keep having the same bad relationships one after the other? The same dead-end, going no where or unfulfilling job? Get off that merry-go-round and write out what you want. Don’t just think or daydream about it. Sit down and write out what you want in detail.
Get organized… There is a process you used by which you have come to live, think and act in the way that you currently do. If you want lasting change, then there is also a process you will need to create new thoughts and new actions. After writing out your desired lifestyle, now turn them into goals and affirmations. Go over them twice a day.
Get visualizing… Take 10 or 15 minutes a day to visualize the new you. How does your new life look? Are you slimmer, healthier, a calmer, nicer person? Do you eagerly help others without expecting something in return? Once you get happy, then get quiet, learn to act as if. See yourself already having, being, doing that which you have organized. Start believing you will get that which you seek before it arrives.
Get help… You can hire a life coach or you can buy personal development books and CD’s if you get stuck in a particular area. Mentoring is great, that’s what I do for a living but I’m telling you, you are the best coach you will ever have, you have all of the answers inside of you. You just need to trust yourself then take action. We all get stuck from time to time or need an extra push, just plug into your favorite inspirational book, CD or DVD. Avoid the temptation to become a self-help junkie.
Get moving… If all anyone had to do was watch a movie, read a book, or listen to a CD and things would happen, stuff would get done. Everyone reading this article would be rich, slim and attractive, married to the perfect mate and sipping their morning coffee poolside at their dream home. My point is, all information is useless unless you are willing to get moving and take some action, make it apart of who you are.
So you can follow The Secret DVD up with the Law of Action. Feel ready, steady and confident about your life. Tom Morris puts it eloquently, “A goal is not the same as a desire and this is an important distinction to make. You can have a desire you don’t intend to act on. But you can’t have a goal you don’t intend to act on.”
Since your life is now, how about getting started today.
