My inspiration for blogging came from The Secret. I was watching Oprah one day and she had the author of The Secret on, plus a panel of other guests. I was curious about the book, so I went out and bought it. While reading The Secret, I had a “light bulb” moment and was inspired to start blogging. A few months prior to that, I didn’t even know what a blog was.

I’m not quite sure where this journey will take me, but I do agree with some of the information that’s written in The Secret. It does say that when a idea comes, to follow it; so that is what I am doing.

I have since gotten the DVD, The Secret (Extended Edition), and have watched that too.

My biggest concern was how The Secret related to what is written in the Bible, so I have been comparing it to one of the books I ready daily, Daily Readings from Your Best Life Now: 90 Devotions for Living at Your Full Potential, by Joel Osteen. I find it rather ironic, as there is a real parallel between the two books.

My observation of this is that I have been on the right path. It pays to stay optimistic, even when things aren’t going the way I had hoped, because something better is just around the corner.

    Yesterday a friend of mine was convincing me to watch that movie. She was so passionate about it so it leaves me no option.. And this post reminded about that movie, thanks 🙂 The idea of the Secret must be true somehow because there are tons of books repeating the same idea again and again, or maybe its just a very big scam 🙂

    Hi Tom,

    You’re right, we do see people saying it’s a bunch of nonsense, but with so many writing about it, and seeing so many testimonials, it does make a person wonder.

    I hope you get a chance to watch the movie. If you have time, come on back and let me know what you thought about it.

    The Secret was my inspiration for many other things than blogging, and I’m lucky to have the original version, before certain people dropped out and they changed some things around. It’s a wonderful movie, and to tell you the truth, it’s in my DVD player right now, as I’ve been working out to it lately. How many movies still keep you learning after three years?

    Hi Mitch – Isn’t that the truth? We can continually learn more by replaying the movie or rereading the book.
