"The Secret" and the Science of Getting Rich

"We need to make a game out of making money. There is so much good we can do with money. Without it, we are bound and shackled and our choices become limited." ~ Bob Proctor

Have you seen or heard about a DVD called The Secret? Well it isn't such a big secret anymore. The DVD was released in March 2006 and, according to Time magazine, The Secret sold 500,000 units within the first 6 months. It now sells well over 5,000 copies a day! It ranked among Amazon's Top-5 sellers over the Christmas week, and in the early weeks of 2007 it rose to #1 on A tie-in hardcover book just entered the Top 10 on the New York Times bestseller list.

The amazing thing about The Secret is that you won't find it in your local Kinokinuya or MPH.* It's selling briskly through new-age bookstores, online book distributors and the official website at "The Secret has become the biggest selling item in the 30-year history of our store," says Harmony Rose Allor, a buyer at West Hollywood's popular metaphysical bookshop, The Bodhi Tree. That's "word-of-mouth" marketing at its best.

So what is the secret to The Secret's success? It's a "transformational movie," where a person's view on life and the laws of living, giving, and forgiving will no longer be the same after watching this movie. In a sense, it has created the same kind of effect as The Da Vinci Code and the 2004 hit cult movie What the Bleep Do We Know?. The Secret has created such waves it was recently featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Larry King Live, and the Ellen DeGeneres show.

At the core of the movie is a central philosophy called the "Law of Attraction." In fact, the movie itself was inspired by this very same law when the producer read a book called The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles. This book was written in 1910!

This philosophy states that we create our own reality, both good and bad. The message is delivered through 24 "teachers" - including success gurus, chiropractic healers, relationship counselors, life coaches and motivational speakers — who together constitute one clear, cohesive voice. The movie is a "must watch" for anyone interested in taking charge of their own life and realizing their dreams.

Following on the success of The Secret, two of the key teachers - namely Bob Proctor and Jack Canfield - have collaborated to produce a wealth building program called the Secret Science of Getting Rich Seminar. This program is based on the book that inspired the movie and is set to make history as the fastest-selling personal development program in history.

What is the Secret Science of Getting Rich about? Well, in the words of Wallace D. Wattles: "The ownership of money and property comes as a result of doing things in a certain way. Those who do things in this certain way, whether on purpose or accidentally, get rich. Those who do not do things in this certain way, no matter how hard they work or how able they are, remain poor. It is a natural law that like causes always produce like effects. Therefore, any man or woman who learns to do things in this certain way will infallibly get rich." The Secret Science of Getting Rich effectively teaches you how to do things in this "certain" way to create boundless health and wealth.

The success of this program is built on a rock-solid foundation, not the least of which is the phenomenal success of The Secret; the timeless concepts from The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles, the charisma and credibility of three of the most successful personal improvement teachers of our time... and the Internet as THE marketing and distribution medium of the 21st century.
