Have you ever noticed those people who when asked “how are you?” reply “could be better” or “can’t complain, and nobody would listen if I did” or “been better” and they seem to have a hard time of it, most of the time?
Have you ever been curious why, when people say “bad luck comes in threes”, they’re usually right?
Have you ever wondered how some people are so upbeat and everything seems to go their way?
This is no accident. This is not coincidence. This is not “sod’s law”.
This IS “The Secret”. This is the “Law of Attraction” at work.
The story of The Secret is phenomenal. A DVD programme created by applying The Secret, that is literally changing lives, can only be purchased online and has sold over 1,500,000 copies in less than a year. The book, just recently launched, is expected to sell over 1,000,000 very soon.
I’ve seen the results in other people. I’m experiencing the results myself and let me tell you, The Secret can change your life too.
Janet and Chris Attwood, creators of The Passion Test, were instrumental in getting the people together to help Rhonda Byrne create The Secret, through their commitment to “Enlightened Alliances”. Jack Canfield, America’s Success Coach, created the Transformational Leadership Council, many members of which, including Jack himself, starred in The Secret.
Oprah interviewed some of the stars of The Secret in February. Check it out at http://whatanicewebsite.com/oprah.wmv
We create in our lives what we choose to create. We receive into our lives what we choose to receive. There are no accidents. There are no coincidences. We can be, do or have whatever we choose. It’s no accident that the title of my book is “It’s Your Choice”, because YOUR LIFE really is YOUR CHOICE.
If you choose to start NOTICING your language, you can choose to start CHANGING your language.
Take it step by step. Start by responding positively when asked “how are you?”…try BLOODY MARVELLOUS!! – it worked for me! One of my coaches now emails me with “hello Mr Bloody Marvellous” as a starting point. She knows we’re going to have a POSITIVE conversation!
Then start noticing when you are using words like “can’t”, “don’t want”, “if only”, “should”, “must” or “have to” and replace them with CAN, WANT, WILL, CHOOSE TO.
Take control of your own language and you will be well on your way to taking control of your own life.
‘Til next time.
