Assignment: Become a Critic
‘’The Secret’’ is a movie I saw a while ago with some friends. To my knowledge it’s available on DVD for under $10. I watched the DVD at a friend’s house. I think this movie has the potential to spread rapidly through word of mouth, and I expect it will become the next underground hit, at least among people with a passion for personal development. I chose to write about this movie because it influences society to have a more positive attitude towards life.
According to the movie, there is a law in the universe called the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like; your thoughts and feelings attract corresponding experiences. Sounds simple but the implications are beyond imagination. For me, "The Secret" accomplishes three objectives: 1) it deepens my understanding of the Law of Attraction and provides numerous examples of how to apply it, 2) the uplifting presentation engenders a positive attitude, and 3) it helps me remember to use my power more often. So even if you are familiar with the technique of shaping your thoughts and feelings to shape your life, this film holds additional value in serving as both reinforcement and reminder. Imagine having the power to easily manifest whatever your heart desires. Imagine being able to magically attract experiences that bring you joy and fulfillment. Sounds fantastic, but what is more incredible is that you already have this power.
