Kind of like the investment scam where a salesaman calls people and tells half the people the market will go up and half that it will go down. Then calls the half he got right back, and says see I told ya so. If you have a big enough pool and hedge your bets, you have to be right some of the time. (Hope the quote function right this time.)

I think the secret can be harmful. People who have been a victim of a crime or children who have been abused may believe they brought it on by their thoughts. I bought the tape because I saw it on Oprah, and thought I would watch it with my daughter. I did think the movie had some good points. Then I saw the guests on Larry King and a caller asked about a child who was assaulted then murdered, and his response was we attract what we get in our lives. I felt sick in my stomach and hoped the family of the child they were talking about was not watching. I am glad I watched the video myself , my daughter will not see it. carol w

Along the lines of attracting others to us, I've found I have met many people similar to myself by writing something useful that is designed to help others feel better:
