I believe in The Secret. The Secret reveals the most powerful law in the universe. We are all made up of energy and the energy we illuminate is the same energy we attract. It is a truly amazing concept and one that can be tested on a daily basis. I have found that when I walk out the door with a great attitude, smile on my face and look for the good things in other people, that is what I attract. I attract happier people, better attitudes and people wanting to be around me. Everyone has desires and everyone must attract what they desire. You can attract negative or positive energy; it is all up to you.

America has reached a peak, and we are facing a rough recession. Thousands are losing their jobs everyday and facing a crucial chapter of their life. Families are losing their homes and walking away with nothing but the clothes on their back. Some may lose hope, but those who believe in The Secret will not. It empowers you to create your life, every minute of every day, from beginning to end. Believing will spare you the agony and create the dream, and those who have lost their homes will soon see a future again.

I realize this can sound idea logical and sometimes bad things do happen. Believing in The Secret does not mean bad things will not happen in your life, but it does make a difference in how you handle those situations and where you end up after the tragedy happens. There was a story about a Jewish Holocaust victim who survived his time in the concentration camp by understanding The Secret. He would not allow them to have his soul; they could do whatever they wanted to his body, but not his soul. He stayed focused on the person he was and the person he would become when he would be released. He utilized his mind to create such a positive energy that he survived the abuse and torture.

The Secret truly is an amazing belief and one that I try to live by. Everyday millions of people are learning about The Secret and it has become an inspiration for many, including myself. Throughout my life I have faced all sorts of obstacles, good and bad, and I have overcome all of them. I took what life threw at me and I ran with it, knowing that in the end, I would end up with what it was I wanted, because I believed and I attracted. I believe in The Secret, I believe in believing.
