The Secret

2006 Psychology 15.51K Views 4 Comments
The self-actualization phenomenon known as <em>The Secret</em> pivots on the time-honored new age notion of the Laws of Attraction: That is, think positively, and positive things will come to you.

This film, originally broadcast over the Internet, has been enhanced and extended for this DVD edition; but it retains the essential elements that have captivated millions.

Most of the material here is given in a straightforward manner, with the presenters simply talking into the camera to address the audience directly, which is good because it avoids the trap of pretense.

On the other hand, the quick edits between presenters (would it hurt to let them say more than one sentence at a time?) don’t help because it reduces many of their points to palatable sound bites and aphorisms.

    I don't see a video..

  • Without those magical thinking or desires to accomplish/achieve something, we are nothing.  We wouldn't have spaceships, a man walking on the moon, going 0-60 in 5 seconds, we have no technology, etc etc.  Basically what the main idea behind the SECRET is to remind us to continue to imagine and believe in what we want to achieve in our lives.  Thats the essence of it nothing more or less.

  • Ridiculous pseudo-science. You don't change the world with magical thinking. The world is indifferent to the desires of humans. Grow up.
