Is “the Secret” and the Introduction to Law of Attraction a Fear Breeder or a Blessing to People?

What scared them about “The secret”?

For most people it is the realization of what they think of becomes reality. That what they think will attract to them what they are thinking about. As is said in “The Secret” the law of attraction isn’t biased, it simply provides what you think of. In my book “The first step: A peek at the real world”, I cover how you attract certain people around you. That is when you are miserable who are the people you talk to and what do you talk about? When you are happy what are the people you talk to and what do you talk about? Do you think it is a coincidence that it is consistently the same people you see and you talk about similar things? Could it be that the law of attraction is making sure that you are surrounding yourself with people that think and feel like you do, what happens if you stop complaining? What happens if you are genuinely happy and successful, do these same people stay around and have the same types of conversations with you? This is one of the examples that most people are familiar with. You may on the other hand not realize it till someone points it out to you and you really start reflecting on it.

Is the law of attraction something to be afraid of?

The answer to that is very simple, just because you just realized it is there, doesn’t mean that you have to fear it. After all did you fear other things that you didn’t know existed just because you didn’t know about them, even though they were affecting your every day life? The law of attraction has always been around, it has been working with you, it has been providing you with all the things you have been thinking about and it will continue to do so, doesn’t matter if you believe in it or not.

Can you choose not to believe?

You can choose to believe or not to believe, just because you saw “The Secret” doesn’t mean that you have to start believing in the law of attraction. Here is the thing about not believing, can you choose not to believe in gravity? Can you choose not to believe in the law of persuasion? Absolutely, the choice is yours, you can believe or you can not believe, but that still does not mean that it doesn’t exist or that it is working.

So does it really work?

I have been asked several times if the law of attraction works. Using NLP techniques I teach people how to create the future they want to be able to get it. Everything starts in the mind, if you never think of it, chances are that you will never do it because it is never an option to you. If the universe is constantly moving things into place, you better define exactly what it is that you want to receive. Sometimes the question isn’t even if it does work, sometimes the question you should be asking, is if it works do you want to take the chance that it doesn’t and not utilize it?

If I haven’t seen “The Secret” yet should I watch it?

Personally and professionally I would recommend it for people to watch. Knowledge is always power, and if you can utilize the information in “The Secret” to your benefit then you should absolutely take the time to watch it, just remember to keep an open mind. There are many different people that present in the movie and the information comes in various terms and examples, the message is a wonderful one and if nothing else, it should help you think in outcomes.

How do life coaches work with the law of attraction?

Life coaches really don’t work with the law of attraction directly, they work with you so that you can start utilizing things like the law of attraction. During the life coaching process we work with you in discovering the things you want, discovering how much the power of outcome based thinking does benefit you. There is an old saying, “you become what you consistently think about”, and that is where life coaching really works wonders. A life coach will work with you to and assist you in consistently focus on the things you want in life, to become exactly what you want to be. A life coach works like a “turbine” for most people. Many people start going through a self-help or personal development with what they have to work with at that time. A life coach has many ways to help you speed up the process and in many cases give you things that books and audio programs can not, and those are questions and answers that reflect your situation.

Can I attract wealth, health and happiness by using nothing more than the law of attraction?

Yes you can loose weight by using the law of attraction, you can get wealthy by using the law of attraction and you can find true happiness by using the law of attraction. NLP has utilized techniques that implement a new thought process not only in your conscious mind, but in your subconscious mind as well. Life coaches can help you take what you want and create new beliefs that will assist and support you, in the process of getting those things you have always wanted.

How do I go about finding a life coach that will assist me in getting all the things that I want?

On you can find additional articles about how to select the right life coach for you. A good start to any process is to do a little bit of work on your own. You can do this by purchasing a book or two and read them before talking to a life coach, make sure you choose a book that is easy to read and you will actually complete it. You can also seek out audio programs or articles that focus on this subject. If you are ready now to contact a life coach and start getting more of the things you want in life, then we recommend that you do so. Start using “The Secret” to your benefit, why wait another second to have all the things you want, come to you in abundance.

Maximize Your Personal Growth By Having A Plan And Reflecting On And Celebrating Progress

It has been shown that people who are successful in becoming highly successful have several things in common. They have a vision and, they develop and then execute the plan. It doesn’t matter whether it is personal or career development that they are focusing on, all of these factors apply.


A typical plan will be 4 to 21 weeks in length. This depends on the level of change that is desired. Sometimes a person only wants to make minor changes or adjustments. This can usually be accomplished in a relatively short period of time. In other instances, there is a desire for greater change. This will be a longer more detailed process. Usually the first example is part of the second.


After you have gone through periods of personal growth and intense activity, you should devote some time reflecting on that experience and making a habit of your new skills. Below we will discuss several methods and activities that will be conducive to consolidating your gains and preparing you to move forward towards even greater growth.


Taking a week to reflect on progress that you have made after several weeks of working on personal growth is vital. You will begin to notice a change in your thoughts and behavior. This will continue to occur over the next several months and throughout the remainder of your life. Becoming self aware will allow you to adjust your thoughts and behaviors on the fly. This is not a skill that is automatic. You will have to make the effort and commitment to develop this skill through repetition.


Many times we continually focus only on what has not been accomplished. This is counterproductive. We should learn to celebrate the success and growth that we experience. Have a plan to reward yourself after each goal is accomplished or significant progress has been made. Don’t feel like you need to be humble during these times. Progress is something that can be difficult and should be acknowledged and celebrated as it occurs.


There are going to be areas that do not improve as quickly as others. These are opportunities for learning. This may mean a change in how we approach certain things. Sometimes it may mean that we should focus on our areas of strength and delegate other things. Some things can’t be delegated and so being aware will help us improve.


Identifying what these areas are and how they should be approached. Why is this area lagging? What emotions are brought up when you think of these areas? Do you feel energy when working on this area or does it drain you? Whether or not this is a personal growth or career development area is important. Personal growth can’t be delegated some things in career development can be. Having the courage to set aside an area for a period of time can be important. It is not a failure to come back to an issue after working on other areas.


Having a vision is an integral part of the process. I always start with the end in mind. What would things look like in a perfect world? Create a vision without limitations. If everything went perfect for you what would the world look like? If you could exhibit every trait or characteristic that you would want what to exhibit what would those be? This is the vision that will help drive your plan for success. As you move forward, revisit this vision often. Does it still look the way you would want or has it changed. Don’t be afraid to adjust. When we make intense personal or career changes, sometimes things that we never thought possible become attainable.

Become a Certified Mental Game Coach

Thinking about improving your coaching abilities? Want to add a unique specialty to your resume? Interested in the mental approach to sports training? You may want to consider becoming a certified mental game practitioner.

The International Mental Game Coaching Association certifies qualified individuals at four levels as Certified Mental Game Practitioners. The IMGCA courses of study include academic and fieldwork, written work and a final examination. Candidates who successfully complete certification receive 16 premium benefits as long as they maintain certification. They also have the right to call themselves IMGCA Certified and display the IMGCA certification logo at their level of certification. To learn more details, go here:

The Four IMGCA Certified Mental Game Practitioner Levels

Level I – IMGCA Certified Mental Game Instructor

Level II – IMGCA Certified Mental Game Coach

Level III – IMGCA Certified Mental Game Master Coach

Level IV – IMGCA Certified Mental Game Professional Coach

Candidates for IMGCA certification come from all walks of life, and have varied backgrounds in sports, coaching, teaching, consulting and the mental game. The IMGCA has designed four levels of certification to address the needs of persons wishing to advance their knowledge, training and capabilities as mental game practitioners. These levels range from beginning practitioners all the way to highly experienced, advanced professional mental game coaches. The commonality among all candidates is that they possess a love of sports and movement, a willingness to learn more about the mental game, and a desire to help others through state of the art mental game coaching.

Each applicant is assessed on an individual basis, and does not need to satisfy each of these qualifications to enter the program. Possible qualifying capabilities include:

• Experience as a teacher, trainer or coach.

• Experience in various sports, or deeply in one or two sports.

• Experience in movement or mind-body disciplines.

• Excellent communication skills.

• Academic preparation in a field that is in sport and movement or that supports these fields.

An ideal candidate for the two advanced IMGCA certifications would have a background as an athlete, coach, teacher, consultant, researcher, administrator or trainer, with academic preparation in appropriate, similar fields at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

How IMGCA Certification Can Improve Your Abilities As A Mental Game Practitioner

The IMGCA certification process is a rigorous and thorough system that prepares you to deliver mental game services to many types of sports, mind-body and movement participants across a wide range of applications. You will be able to deliver mental game services to individuals, groups and teams at a much higher level and will be much more effective in helping them overcome mental and emotional obstacles and in achieving their goals in sports and movement. These certifications are not programs leading to licensing or qualification as a sport psychologist. That requires additional training and school work.

Specifically, with our certification programs, you will experience these enhancements:

• Deeper levels of awareness, analysis and assessment of the mental game.

• Improved teaching, consulting and coaching effectiveness in the mental arena.

• Confidence of knowing how to facilitate mental game interventions across a variety of disciplines, skills levels and situations.

• Better 1-1, group and team coaching in the mental game.

• Enhanced speaking and training abilities for use in conducting mental game workshops and seminars.

IMGCA Tools You Can Access During The Certification Training Process

• Mental game assessment tools

• Turn-key handouts for teaching the mental game

• Turn-key handouts for coaching the mental game

• An IMGCA workbook

• IMGCA articles

• Athlete feedback forms

• Post-competition assessments

What Are Your Reasons For Undertaking IMGCA Certification Training?

Our students are excited to begin IMGCA certification training because they want to be recognized for completing a rigorous, internationally-respected mental game certification training program, own a unique and impressive resume item and possess distinct job-hunting advantages over those without such a credential.

how to prepare personal development plan?

I need to have general understanding about preparation of personal development plans for a company. It is a part of Human Resourse development.

Very generally by looking at

1) the skills you have now

and then detailing the gaps between this and

2) the skills needed to fulfill your job description
3) the skills neeeded to keep abreast of changes/updates to your job
4) the skills needed to move towards aspirations you hold in your job

and then working out a plan for addressing these gaps.
Very often, in assessing your current skills, tools like appraisals and 360 degree feedback can be useful

These sites may also be able to inform

Do you have to make positive thinking a habit?

I find sometimes it’s difficult not to give in to negative thoughts and feelings. It’s almost like I have to struggle and force myself to think positively. Sometimes negative thoughts about past mistakes take over my thinking and make everything seem more gloomy. Have you dealt with this yourself or do you know someone who deals with this?

Yes it does take practice to change the pattern of negative thinking into positive. It sounds like you are doing things right though – you recognise when you are thinking negatively and you conciously replace those thoughts with positive ones. Dont worry , it does get easier , it becomes completely natural. The hardest part is breaking the habit of negative thinking – which you are going through now.
If past mistakes are making this hard for you, try looking at the mistakes differently – what good things came from those mistakes? did you learn something about yourself? did those mistakes make you stronger? did other oportunities pop up that might not have if you had not made those mistakes?
For starters – it seems that some of these ‘mistakes’ may have made you aware of your negative thinking patterns, and the need to change them – that in itself is a little gem of wisdom you have gained from those experiences.
Inspirational quotes can be very helpful while going through the shift from negative to positve thinking.
All the best.

Motivation to answer?

Read something on a profile that made me wonder…what is YOUR personal motivation to answer questions here? And how do you decide which questions you want to answer? What process do you use or go through?

personally the only reason i answer questions is so that if i want to ask a question, i can have enough points to ask. and i ask a lot of questions. to answer your second question: i decide which questions i want to answer by thinking. like if i can answer well enough i’ll try it
