What Does Larry Winget Really Think About The Secret?
Today I read an article by Larry Winget about the book “The Secret”. I love this guy! His article is called, “The Secret Is A Total Load Of Crap”. So who is Larry Winget? He is a best-selling author, a speaker, and starred in an A&E television series called Big Spender. Larry is the trademarked Pitbull of Personal Development. His latest New York Times best-seller is called “People Are Idiots And I Can Prove It”.
So what does Larry say about “The Secret”? Here are some excerpts from his article, but be fore-warned – Larry is very blunt and open about his views and they may not be palatable for some:
People are scrambling to find some secret that will help them be more successful. There are thousands of books on the market claiming to have all of those secrets. In fact, the bestselling book on the planet for the past two years is a book called The Secret. Let me repeat my opening line when it comes to this book: The Secret is a total load of crap!
The Secret basically says, “What you think about and talk about comes about.” Really? Is that how it works? I believe, “What you think about, talk about and get off your ass and DO something about is what comes about!” Thinking is important, focus is important, self-talk plays a role, but alone they are a waste of time. In that way, The Secret is a half-truth, which in my book, makes it a lie. The Secret cheats people of the real gratification and success that comes from having put forth good old-fashioned hard work.
