Question with 4 notes
Anonymous asked: How do you feel about The Secret and The Law of Attraction? People tell me that I need to buy and study this stuff so I won't continue being a failure in life...
Look at the people that are telling you this, are they overwhelmingly successful in life with everything they ever wanted? Chances are they aren’t, if they are searching for ways to improve their life through mumbo-jumbo and “positive thinking” garbage. There is no “secret” worth anything, it is just another way of selling people bullshit in a pretty package. It is nothing more than a way of trying to get people to be positive and think positive so they act positive but they package it as more than that.
There is likely a lot to having a positive attitude, envisioning your goals in life to being able to better focus on them, things that these books attempt to focus on but they push it beyond that. They present it as something special that will provide you with happiness and success without work. There are no easy answers in life and unless you were lucky enough to be born rich there are no easy paths.
When looking for advised on how to be successful in life it is probably best to take the advice from people who have actually been successful. People who have actually been successful will usually tell you about how much hard work and dedication it takes, not that they figured it all out after reading some silly book. Try not to let people get you down, if there really was some magical power people could gain from this book it would be anything but a secret. Keep pressing on and do the best you can in life, success is all relative, success to one person may be a failure to another but as long as you are content and satisfied that is what should matter.
