|GET FOCUSED. GET CONTROL. GET GROWING.|
"The Secret" to a Successful Business
"Every thought is a seed. If you plant crab apples, don't count on harvesting Golden Delicious."
There has been a lot of buzz and controversy around the book and DVD entitled The Secret. In oversimplified terms, it is about positive thinking and being intentional about what you want and attracting it to you. The premise is that we attract what we are thinking and feeling. If we change our thoughts and feelings to reflect what we want rather than what we lack, it will come to us.
One of the criticisms surrounding this book is that it minimizes complicated concepts. Other complaints are focused on its materialistic orientation. Still others have objected to the example used of a woman who visualized and laughed away the cancer in her body without medical intervention. Makes it sound hokey doesn’t it?
Like every new "get rich" or "quick fix" trend, this book is creating a cult-like following of believers. With any new-fangled concept or theory I learn about, I evaluate its usefulness to me and my clients and extract the parts that make sense. There are rarely easy solutions to complex issues. However, I have seen remarkable change and improvement in people, their finances and in businesses of those who apply the principles of The Secret. Yes, I admit I bought the DVD and am successfully integrating its principals into my life and work.
I always encourage clients to consider doing things differently to effect positive change. Repeating the same steps the same way, is not going to make a business grow. Change is necessary to create a better outcome. Well, The Secret calls for a change of attitude and letting go of limiting beliefs. Can that help your business?
Here are some beliefs you can change that could support you to move your business forward.
Getting back to The Secret, you can see from these examples how you think about your business can be a starting point for increasing its success. Thinking alone will not produce the results you want, you must also plan and take action around your new thoughts. Change your thinking and focus your intentions on key areas that will bring success to you. Read the book or view the DVD and center on the ideas that you can apply to your business and your life. Be sure to notice what is working. Then you will know you have learned "the secret".
