Book ~ "The Secret" (2016) Rhonda Byrne

From Goodreads ~ Fragments of a Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. For the first time, all the pieces of The Secret come together in an incredible revelation that will be life-transforming for all who experience it.

In this book, you'll learn how to use The Secret in every aspect of your life - money, health, relationships, happiness, and in every interaction you have in the world. You'll begin to understand the hidden, untapped power that's within you, and this revelation can bring joy to every aspect of your life. 

 "The Secret" contains wisdom from modern-day teachers - men and women who have used it to achieve health, wealth, and happiness. By applying the knowledge of The Secret, they bring to light compelling stories of eradicating disease, acquiring massive wealth, overcoming obstacles, and achieving what many would regard as impossible.

I read The Secret around the time it came out in 2006.  While I didn't buy into all of it, I liked a lot of the principles like positive thinking, being in control of your future, etc.  Gord's reading it now so I thought I'd reread it.

The premise of the book is about the laws of attraction and that thinking about certain things will make them happen in your life. According to the author, all you have to do is ask for what you want, believe and be open to receive.  The author stresses the importance of gratitude and visualization in achieving your desires, along with examples. Later chapters describe how to improve your prosperity, relationships and health.

As when I read the book originally, I took somethings away that I found useful.  Rereading the book was a good reminder.
