Q&A: “Why do so many people struggle with The Secret?”

It's all in your hands

Question submitted via Formspring:
“The Secret has been out for a few years now, & its guideline is relatively simple & straightforward. How come, then, there are still so many people struggling with it year after year? And why don’t we hear as many success cases as we do struggling cases?”


We talked about this one in a recent episode of Rise UP with B. Dave Walters, along with: Getting people to listen to and *like* you! Why the Secret doesn’t work for some people, a 34 year old virgin, How to know if someone is ‘the one’, why we obsess about celebrities, wealth, fame, and more!

So, then, why does the Secret fail for some people?
The answer is simple, but it’s not always easy to accept: the Secret doesn’t fail…ever.

The Law of Attraction is like gravity; does gravity sometimes fail some people?  Or does it pull on all of us equally, all the time?
And so it is with the Secret; it always brings us what we are vibrating with emotionally, 100% of the time.   If you want to know what you are attracting, look around you.  Everything you are, and everything you have, is a direct result of everything you’ve been thinking and feeling up until now.   The Law of Attraction cannot fail us, but we absolutely can fail the Law of Attraction.


So, rather than wonder why the Law isn’t working, we should instead be asking ourselves: what am I really thinking and feeling?
What am I really attracting?

As for why you don’t hear about the success stories, the answer to that is simple as well: every success is a successful use of the Law of Attraction.  Whether or not the person applied it knowingly or unknowingly, everyone who ever succeeded at anything has to believe it was possible first, sometimes for years before it actually manifests.


It isn’t possible to wake up every day telling yourself something you want is absolutely impossible and will never happen, and then have it actually happen.

It has also been asked if the Law of Attraction blames the victim, but here is a very, very, very, important secret: you can control EVERYTHING, or you can’t control anything in your life.  There is no power in choosing to perceive yourself as a victim, so why do it?

Quite frankly, the complainers and people with a victim mentality are sitting online looking for someone else to blame, while winners are out…winning!
And if you aren’t quite sure why you aren’t attracting the things you want into your life, this will help.


You are great, and I love you!
