Rhonda Byrne created a DVD called The Secret based on the philosophy that you create the life you want. And yesterday Oprah dedicated her show to The Secret but because Bossy created the life she wants and that life includes painting the laminate paneling of a client’s trailer home, Bossy wasn’t finished in time to catch the show.
But lucky for Bossy and her thousands of new readers who inadvertently stumbled on i am bossy looking for the connection between Anna Nicole Smith and agita – Hi new readers! – we can all learn The Secret from perusing Oprah’s website.
Here’s what: According to Rhonda Byrne and the other guests assembled on Oprah’s panel, The Secret is about the law of attraction and the theory that like attracts like. We attract things and people into our lives based on what we’re thinking and feeling. “If you were at a restaurant and you ordered something, you fully expect it to come served that way,” says Motivational Teacher Lisa Nichols. Of course Lisa Nichols never met Bossy’s Grandma Charlotte who never assumed a day in her life that anything she ordered would come prepared correctly.
“If you say, ‘I’ll never have a great relationship,’ you just placed an order,” says Lisa. In a parallel example, when you say: I’d like a successful husband with an enormous pickle you just placed an order! Catching on?
A life without The Secret is a life spent focusing on the wrong thing – instead of wallowing in negative thoughts we need to shift toward positive thinking. It’s not about the weight you can’t lose — it’s about how lucky you are that you can balance a hot fudge sundae on your protruding ass.
It’s important we communicate the right message because our thoughts and feelings travel long distances and send signals to tons of people — which explains the Unspecified Charges on your cell phone. And we need to relish the gifts we’ve been given so we can make room for new gifts. Like two sea foam chairs from Crate&Barrel. We need to forgive our past, let go of hostility, and look for the underlying lessons in everything we do.
