The “self-help” book The Secret has been flying off the shelves since it was written in 2006. Sure there are plenty of people that believe in the power of positive thinking, but Rhonda Byrne believed that it was about MORE than simple positive thinking. After all, what does a positive mental attitude do for you? It makes the universe bow down to you, basically.
Yup, it’s that simple.
Byrne argues that if you not only think positively, but also truly believe that you ARE (not will be) whatever you want to be, the universe will give that to you. Those who say that The Secret didn’t work for them are met by a very simple explanation: they didn’t believe hard enough. So, since there is no way too really disprove The Secret, why not believe it?
That is one very large Appeal to Ignorance if I ever saw one.
And now, my friends, you know The Secret.
