Have u heard of a book entitled "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne? I've heard about this book from a friend of mine. He is a 29-year-old former engineer who already quit his job, and jump into a big business. And now stil running his business. Well at that time he said, "Try find this book and read it. "
Well, i admit that i love to read motivational books somestimes, I am not an motivated person after all, so i think i need external motivation either from my family or from my loved ones or when im alone, i try to find something to read, to make my self calm and up again. When I'm down, i can hardly think well, and act accordingly.
For this book, I dont really convinced to have it but still i tried to find it in all book store around batu pahat, but the seller said they dont have it. Then I tried to find it in MPH book store in JB (during dating with my dear ;P ) Well, i did found it, but the seller said it was the LAST ONE and it already booked by someone. They have ONE LAST cd but the cd was very expensive! Around Rm100++. Then i decided to buy it later.
Then, I've tried to find the review of this book from Internet, some of them said it is a bluff, some said it is an interesting book. But when i search through an Oprah website..i was convinced that the book is an excellent book. I really want to have it! Although I dont know what the content is. But when? I dont know..After that day, I've never been to jb again.
And today..I've received an e-book of 'The Secret' from my dear loved one (^_^)
I dont know how to express how thankful i am to him for giving me such a wonderful gift!
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH, dear~~!!! mmuaah~
Here is some review from Oprah Winfrey Show website:
You can take a look at another review from Personal Book Growth article here.
People around the world have been talking about a movie so powerful that it can change the course of your life. This movie, The Secret, was created by Australian Rhonda Byrne, and she says that if you follow its philosophy, you can create the life you want—whether that means getting out of debt, finding a more fulfilling job or even falling in love.
Rhonda says she stumbled on what she calls The Secret at the end of 2004. At the time, everything in Rhonda's life had fallen apart—physically, emotionally and financially—and she was in "total despair." Then her father died suddenly, and she was worried about her grief-stricken mother. "I wept and wept and wept, and I didn't want my daughter to see me sobbing," Rhonda says.
That's when Rhonda's daughter gave her a copy of The Science of Getting Rich, a book written in 1910 by Wallace D. Wattles. "Something inside of me had me turn the pages one by one, and I can still remember my tears hitting the pages as I was reading it," Rhonda says. "It gave me a glimpse of The Secret. It was like a flame inside of my heart. And with every day since, it's just become a raging fire of wanting to share all of this with the world."
After that first discovery, Rhonda read hundreds of books, listened to hundreds of hours of audio tapes and scoured the Internet for more information. She says she traced the idea of The Secret through history—all the way from 3500 B.C. to the present day. "Since I discovered The Secret, every single moment of my entire life has changed, and I am living my life for the first time," Rhonda says.
Rhonda defines The Secret as the law of attraction, which is the principle that "like attracts like." Rhonda calls it "the most powerful law in the universe," and says it is working all the time. "What we do is we attract into our lives the things we want, and that is based on what we're thinking and feeling," Rhonda says. The principle explains that we create our own circumstances by the choices we make in life. And the choices we make are fueled by our thoughts—which means our thoughts are the most powerful things we have here on earth.
It contains 198 pages, so it might takes time to complete the reading since i have to read it from a computer. (it's an e-book remember? ;P) But I'll try to put some review after I've read the book, ok? (^_^)
