The Story Behind Rhonda Byrne's "the Secret"

Jan 29, 2008
Haven't we all had bad days once in a while? I know I have. Consider Rhonda Byrne for a moment. She didn't have a bad day; she had a bad YEAR. As if struggling financially wasn't enough, she lost her father, and her business was failing. As luck would have it, her daughter handed her a book one night that would lead to a life-changing production. Rhonda had found The Secret, and she wanted the world to know!

As soon as she could, Rhonda Byrne called together her production crew to let them know about the new movie she had in mind. She told them about The Secret, told them she didn't have any money, and begged them to have faith like she had. She told them to focus only on the outcome. It worked. Her crew was behind her, and production was on its way.

One such time when focusing on the outcome paid off was toward the end of production when Rhonda wished she would've asked for close-ups of people during interviews. She could only afford one camera throughout production, so having a second angle wouldn't have been possible. One day two camera men accidentally showed up, so the second one decided to focus his camera on faces. The faces he captured were exactly the ones Rhonda wanted at the end of production!

Rhonda Byrne said not long ago, "Faith is total heart trust without knowing with your mind." That's The Secret... at least, part of The Secret, anyway. It's why Rhonda decided to take on such a monumental task without any money in the budget. She had faith and focus, and she knew that would help her reach her goal.

You are what you think you are. When you say "I'm broke" or "I'm fat", you really are broke and fat. By focusing on statements like that, you become what you say. Focus your mind on positives. When you say, "I'm ...", make sure you end with something positive. Force yourself to become what you want to be without putting in nearly as much effort as you think it will take.

Life is full of challenges that each of us face daily. Filling your heart with love is one way The Secret helps people get through challenges. When Rhonda Byrne began production on her movie, she was barely paying the bills. However, she did something the rest of the world would probably consider crazy. She withdrew her bill money gave it to strangers on the street! Her money was doing something positive for others.

To have The Secret, you must first have focus. What do you want? What would you like to become? Turn those thoughts into a mental laser beam, and ignore all the negative thoughts in your mind. Figure out what it is you really want, and then focus your mind on it like a laser beam. Ignore everything else. Rhonda wanted so much for the whole world to know the focus secret that she gave away MILLIONS of DVDs before the movie even started making money!

To get what you want, you have to take action. It's one thing to focus your mind on something and ignore everything else, but focus isn't the end of the story. Take the marketing of The Secret, for example. No one will find out about a movie without advertising it (even if the advertising is by word of mouth), so Rhonda decided to market The Secret using only online trailers. Have focus, and take action! That's The Secret!
