My wife and I just watched this movie/documentary http://www.thesecret.tv/home.html (work/family safe) deals with “The Law of Attraction”
I have read/studied this message before in the past, however, this piece left me stunned. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this and I would love to know your thoughts on how we can use the “law of Attraction” to help our athletes? I believe this has tremendous potential. I would love to start a thread about this angle of motivation. You can download the movie from the site for $4.95 and watch it (no macs with intel processors, must have fast connection, etc) or order the DVD. This video has already created a huge change in my perception. Feel free to email me off board if you want davidmacdonald5@yahoo.com

Can you give us a Cliff Notes version so we can decide if we want to download it?

Hi Becca,
There is a synopsis on the web site. I really want your thoughts (completive athlete, etc). If you don't like it, I'll send you $5 dollars:-)

Is that big secret and law of attraction about whatever we focus our mind and thoughts on....we attract that positive life force energy to us and accomplish whatever we desire?

Like an athlete going through an event in his mind where he accomplishes or wins...and then does the event?

Our minds are a powerful weapon...if we choose to use them.

After viewing the site, I'm more leary than intrigued.

I suspect someone here is promoting the site in a round about way.

If not, we'd like to hear your take on it.

unless Mr. Macdonald can provide a better synopsis then the website, "the secret" will remain a secret with me.

I read the synopsis and viewed the trailer and saw nothing but fluff..:dunno:

Mike,
“Is that big secret and law of attraction about whatever we focus our mind and thoughts on....we attract that positive life force energy to us and accomplish whatever we desire?”

No. That’s not it. I used to think that was a good explanation. Not anymore. Watch it, Mike. I’ll send you $5 dollars if you think it’s silly.

Relax, Franklin.
I'm hoping some members have already seen the video and would like their comments. "Fluff", that's funny. If you’re not interested, move on. You can call me, Dave.
