Anyone who watches Oprah is familiar with The Secret - a popular book about the Law of Attraction. But many people are frustrated because, though they've read the book - and want their lives to be different - they just can't seem to make The Secret work for them. Well, the Law of Attraction isn't a "tool," or something that either works or doesn't work; it is always working whether you understand how to work with it, or not. If you are thinking and the "right" thoughts, feeling the "right" feelings,and taking the "right" actions, it will seem much more like the "Law" is on your side and working "for" you rather than "against" you. Here are three-things you can do to help The Secret work for you:

1. ASK for what you want by Thinking about it, or Imagining it. To use The Secret to "get what you want," you must first ASK for, or THINK about, or IMAGINE, what you want - positively, and with as much detail as possible.

2. OVERCOME Negative Thoughts and Self-Talk. Use Prayer, Affirmations, Meditation, Self-Hypnosis, or one of the new Energy Psychology techniques, such as the Z-Point Process, or the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), to overcome or eliminate negative and limiting beliefs - and other emotional obstacles that may be between you and your dream, goal, or the answer to your prayer.

3. LET-GO, BE BOLD, & SAY, "YES!" Whether you've released all your fears or not, you must take bold steps toward your dreams - and say, "Yes!" to opportunities and obvious action steps that lead you in the right direction and closer to your dreams.

Many people have approached The Secret, or the Law of Attraction, as a sort of "dream-machine," or, thanks to the example in the movie, "a wish-granting-genie." The REAL Secret, however, is that this way of thinking must become constant - or very intense - in order to generate what the average person would view as "miraculous results." You must ask for what you want, and remove your reasons for not having it, before you can experience the manifestation of your dreams; and when you do experience them, you must be bold and say, "Yes!" to that which you have asked for.

If it seems like The Secret is not working for you, or perhaps even working against you, consider that it is your thoughts working contrary to your desires; try changing your thoughts before declaring that the Universe is "against" you, or that natural Law has all of a sudden stopped working in your case. Do you think Oprah got where she is by focusing on her limitations and saying, "No!" to opportunities she asked for? All things are possible if you believe; but it is up to you to choose what you want, decide to get it, and take whatever steps, or however many steps, may be required.
