Last week the class focused on a video based on a book called “The Secret”. The video was very intresting. It talked about “The Law of Attraction” wich in short words means that “thoughts become things”. The video tried explaining it scientifically sayinf “Every thought has frequency”. The video had people explaining their experience with the law of attraction and it was shown to be true. Throughout the video it is said that negative thoughts will show up over and over because people will focus more on the bad than on the good. It showed that people who believe in the law of attraction had this problem of focusing on the bad. With help it is shown that the individual had stopped focusing so much on the bad and focused more on the positive. This change in their thought had changed their life around. It went from bad to better and good. The people in the video seemed very happy with the outcomes.The video also says that if people focus on what they want they will get it. This does not necessarily mean think about what you want and it will automatically appear, no. This just means that keeping in mind ones goals is a goos way to achieve it because you never let it out sight. The video also saids that “time lets you rethink things carefully”. This is talking about the bad things we sometimes wish to happen when we are upset. This saids that since things dont happen as soon as we think of it, time lets you cool down and know that you really did not mean to wish or think about what you thought of.
After seeing the video, i related it to myself. Idont know if the law of attraction is real, but i do belive that focusing on what one wants and the positive things will help one to achieve that goal. Obviosly something bad will always happen because it is life and thats how things is. But i do believe staying positve can help ones selfesteem and will help one strive for what we want.
The video kwpt saying that individuals are the “michle angelo of their lives”. I agree with this because i always thought we are the authours of our lives. in other words we have control in our lives. Ofcourse something bad may happen but it is up to people to let that bad thing ruin their day or keep walking and continue in a good mood. To me the book/video “The Secret” is more of a motivational video/book.
