“The Secret”, and many other similar books or films are great for inspiration and for creating expectations. They also awaken the belief that one can change his/her life and achieve success, yet this is not enough. A beginner might create some minor success, but in order to make real changes and create greater success, more understanding, information and skills are required.
In order to use the law of attraction successfully, you need to know what to do and how, and not every book provides this information. You also need to know about the obstacles you might encounter, both inner and external, and how to deal with them.
It is not enough just to feel elated after reading or watching a movie, and though these feelings are important, more is required for success. Too often, inspiration and elation wear out after a while, and then you either feel disappointed, forget about what you have read, or if you still desire to take advantage of the law of attraction, you might not know what to do next.
The law of attraction works everywhere in nature, and also in personal life, but one has to know how to use it correctly.
Before achieving any kind of success, you have to be clear about what you want to do or achieve, and you have to acquire the necessary qualifications. It is also useful, especially with big goals, to develop a certain degree of concentration, visualization, perseverance, willpower and self discipline, but very few books speak about this and tell you how to do that.
Here are a few recommended books:
Mind Power: The Secret of Mental Magic by William Walker Atkinson
Practical Guide to Creative Visualization by Osborne Phillips
