The movie, The Secret, points out several different concepts and “laws” which are all meant to be part of some great secret. These secrets all compile up to grant the user of the “secret” the possibility to completely fullfil their life. Be it great health, friends, events, people, family, objects, wealth, etc. people can achieve whatever it is they want most through the movie’s methods; Of course I’m only talking in reference to the movie.
The main concept of the movie is based around the Law of Attraction, I would say. This law basically states that everything in the universe that happens to you, is brought upon by you and what goes on in your mind. For more information about the Law of Attraction, view my article concerning it. For even further information, I suggest watching the movie, The Secret.
There are however, many other concepts and “laws” that come along with the Law of Attraction. One of these is the “Be Do Have” principle. Many would argue that this is no secret to life, and that almost anyone successful has applied it without even knowing that it’s the secret. I would definitely have to agree here, because the movie does point out all of the successful people that have used the principle in becoming successful, however, the principle is nothing more than a more convenient way to setup goals.
To “be” is to believe. Believe that you can get whatever it is that you’re interested in getting. If you want the new bike, believe that you can get it. If you want a girl to like you, believe that it’s going to happen. According to the movie, and through the law of attraction, the more you believe that it’s going to happen, the more likely it is to come true. If you can see yourself with whatever it is you desire, perhaps even go the extra mile and create some false image that what you actually desire is there. Make paintings, change the markings on the weight scale, change the numbers on a check, anything you can possibly think of.
To “do” is simply to do whatever it takes to achieve what you want. Isn’t this the same concept as goal setting? I would definitely say so myself, however the movie bases the principle around the law of attraction, a different approach, however it keeps the user thinking only positive thoughts. Instead of thinking “there’s no way I could lose that much weight” think to yourself.. “I already lost the weight” or “losing the weight will be easy!”. Basically though, do whatever it takes to accomplish whatever you believed originally.
To “have” is to have accomplished what you desired most! You finally got what you wanted, because you believed and you did whatever it took; Whatever stood in your way you were able to make it through. Now, through the law of attraction, people would say that it was all attracted to you naturally, you just had to walk through the doors.
The law of abundance goes hand in hand. Everyone wants to believe that there isn’t enough of everything to go around in the world. The law of abundance says basically that if everyone focuses on the fact that there truly is enough to go around, there will be. The universe is all one big source of energy, and we will always be able to manifest from the universe what we want so long as we know it’s there and always will be.
There will always be food for us to eat. There will always be fuel for us to run our cars on, regardless of what it is or becomes. I’m not saying to not have a worry in the world, but it seems as if the movie illustrates this. I’m also not claiming to agree with the movie, but the concept of having a good attitude about everything and realizing that the key concept to life is being happy, gracious, and understanding is true.
