What is the secret? It is simply this: You become, you do and get what you think about. Your luck, fortune, success and happiness have nothing to do with what HAPPENS to you and everything to do with what you THINK about. “The Secret” is hardly new. Twenty-five centuries ago, Buddha taught, “All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think, we become. What we are today comes from our thoughts from yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is created by our mind.
Yes, our thoughts, and the beliefs, attitudes and feelings produced by them, are the building blocks of our lives. Though storms maybe swirling around, it is not they that shape our lives, but our thoughts. Our thoughts become our beliefs and attitude. And they create our feelings, which then lead to positive feelings, which then lead to positive actions that then lead to positive results. The same chain of events occurs with negative thinking, except the results are negative consequences.
If the secret has been around for so long, how so few are aware of it? Mainly, two reasons. First, our teachers, guiders and friends never taught us about it. Second, we cannot see unless we open our eyes. We cannot find unless we search. We cannot discover unless we investigate. And it is not enough to search; we have to search for the right things. For example, when people are unhappy with their lives, what do they do? Too often they spend time searching for events and people to blame for their failures. They are very good at what they do and find what they are looking for: plenty of excuses and lots of people to blame. But, excuses don’t improve our life; they just keep us macabrely mired in our misery. On the other hand, when faced with problems, some search for solutions, not excuses. They are the ones who discover the fault lies not in the world, but in their own thoughts. By changing their attitude and behavior, they find their problems disappear at one time.
We continually experience, become, do and get what we think about. This principle is often called The Law of Attraction. The Secret, then, deals with how we create and sustain our reality with our thoughts The secret is exciting news for those who are willing to embrace it and use it to get the most enjoyment and success from life.
Always keep the vehicle of your life on the positive highway and hence you will reach your destination very soon.
