By now, you have probably heard about “The Secret.” Oprah Winfrey and Larry King have interviewed the people who contributed to the creation of “The Secret” DVD and book.
So if you do not know what “The Secret” is, I am going to tell you. “The Secret” is the “Law of Attraction.” This means that everything that happens to you, good or bad, occurs because you have attracted it by your thoughts. In other words, you will attract what you think about most. For example, if you think that you are going to fail at something, you most certainly will. These thoughts also cause our feelings. So if we think negatively, we will also feel this way. This attracts more negative experiences and more negative people into our lives. But if we feel good, we will attract more things that make us feel good. Therefore, whatever you are thinking and feeling today, is creating your current and future situations. Unfortunately, what most people do not realize is that what they are thinking about most is what they do not want.
Now, you may be asking yourself what this has to do with your life. The answer is that it allows you to control your life’s destiny, rather than life’s events controlling you. So if your goal is to be a work-at-home mom, there is a way to do this. Instead of thinking that you have to go to a job that you do not like, begin to think about what you do want. Stop focusing on what you don’t want. Then, believe that what you want has already come to pass, even if you do not yet know HOW it will. Then imagine how it would feel to be a successful work-at-home mom. Focus on the feeling of walking away from your job and what it would feel like to attend your daughter’s first day of preschool, for example.
Another important concept is that you need to take on an “attitude of gratitude,” in being grateful for all that you already have. Until this occurs, the creators of “The Secret” say that nothing new can come into your life. You need to see your past as a positive experience of things learned, before you can move on to fulfilling your goals and dreams. This is especially true if you have tried other work-from-home endeavors that were not successful.
As quoted by James Ray when interviewed by Oprah Winfrey, “Success is when you’re living the gifts and talents within yourself.”
In summary, success is not for the elite. It’s for everyone. And if your dream is to work from home, you can do it too by applying the principles from “The Secret.”
