The Secret Introduced

One lazy morning, I turned my TV on and switched the channel to a rerun of the Oprah Winfrey Show. Oprah and her guest were talking about the "secret" and how it improved the guest's life prosperously and healthfully. I wondered what they were talking about. What was the "secret" all about? It raised curiosity in my mind but deeply, I wanted it because I, too, wanted my life improved -- especially financially. But how and where? What was it. At that time, I didn't even know that "The Secret" was a film video.

I Googled the Net and found so many materials about it. It's like everybody was going gaga about that "secret". The sad part, however, was that everybody was selling the idea. No one would reveal the "secret" unless you buy their products. Now, I know what the "secret" is all about -- it's business -- it's about money.

I got frustrated because I had no money and no credit card either. However, the curiosity remains in my mind, wanting to know what's in that video. The desire to know the "secret" remained a burning desire. Then...

I was talking to a friend and I told him about this so called "secret". It so happened he had a video of the film. He shared it and I watched it. Finally, after a few days of thinking about it, I was able to see the video at no cost. Thanks to my friend!

So, what was the video about? Not much except that it was creatively done. It raises more curiosity. It was a good and effective marketing product to sell itself. The idea is there -- this so called law of attraction -- but there's not much information about it.

Like I said, it's business!
