Beyond the Secret: What We Learned

I and three of my best friends, Sally Dove, Cindy Garrett, and my husband, went to see "Beyond the Secret" tonight in Fresno. If you missed it, don't worry. This was just the prequel consisting of a panel discussion with people appearing in the full movie. The actual DVD is coming out in April.

As always, I had my trusty Moleskine notebook in my purse and took notes. So, in order to release their power into the universe ;-), here are some key phrases from "Beyond the Secret."
  • An MIT study showed that it takes 17 corresponding positive thoughts to get rid of one negative thought.
  • If your way isn't working, try someone else's.
  • What does being "realistic" cost us?
  • A dream is something we can control (vs. fantasy, something we can't control)
  • Hold an image of what you want in your mind and emphasize it. What you either fear or revere will appear in your life in the most convenient form available.
  • The law of gestation is different for everything, but it all takes time.
  • Successful people get exposure to World Class thinkers. You can believe success is real when you see it on a regular basis.
  • Ask for help from someone who is where you want to be, not another clueless person.
  • Self-trust is based on keeping agreements with yourself.
  • We don't tell people our dreams because they might expect us to do something about it.
  • Write down, share, & speak about your dreams.
  • Change is hard.
  • We don't know why we believe most of what we believe.
  • Program your own mind or others will do it for you.
  • Just do it... anyways.
  • The first law of receiving is to give.
