Our son was asleep and we were looking for a movie to watch. We came across, “The Secret” on Netflix. The intro was so extreme, we almost turned it off. Once the secret was revealed, I was more interested. I do believe in the law of attraction and wanted to listen to others opinions about it.
I do think that if you have clear, visual goals you are more likely to make something happen. I also agree that the energy and feelings you radiate can affect those around you and can help you succeed.
Like “The Secret”, I believe that when you have a goal, you don’t have to know the exact path you’ll take in the beginning. When I came up with the concept of the Desert Dwellers Flash Cards, I knew I wanted to create, paint and design the set of cards – but I didn’t have a clue on how to manufacture them and get them into stores. But that was OK!….It still happened!
To make my goal of selling Desert Dwellers Flash Cards, I asked a lot of questions to people that have already created their own products. From children’s book publishers to successful artists with products, I learned a lot from them. This gave me the confidence to contact various print vendors to get the conversation going.
I realize now that when I first started, I didn’t need all of the answers at once. The only thing I needed was a good idea and the belief that I could do it. I think many of us have amazing ideas and inventions, but then think — but I don’t know how to actually make it–so I am not going to try.
Can you relate to this?
In “The Secret”, there are some things I did not agree with – for example, that if you worry about your bike getting stolen – it will probably get stolen. I know that this was a way for them to illustrate what they meant – but c’mon.
What do you think about the examples in the movie?
Overall I am glad I watched it and it got me thinking. I think I will continue to have goals, but even increase the amount of CLARITY I have about them. Instead of saying, “I want to sell my Desert Dwellers Flash Cards nationally.”, I might add details to this goal like..”By November, I want to sell my flash cards on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Land of the Nod. I also want to have them listed as a children’s holiday gift in Real Simple and featured on Today Moms blog.”
Maybe because I am publishing these goals it will happen. I HOPE SO!!!
Did reading or watching The Secret change the way you think?
