The Secret begins with Byrne introducing the concept of the law of attraction. Byrne maintains that the universe emits a certain frequency which people can attract towards themselves. She stresses that positive thinking is a powerful entity which draws in energy in the same frequency range. In other words, by always engaging in positive thinking, Byrne claims that people will attract back positivity. The term â€˜positiveâ€™ could apply to a positive event, people, thoughts, or material items. Byrne feels that if a person thinks like a winner, he will be a winner, if he thinks like a rich person, then he will become rich. The author states that positive thinking will always attract back positivity from the universe. The Secret introduces a three-step creative process to help people turn their dreams into reality. The process involves Asking, Believing, and Receiving, which is also a concept mentioned in the Holy Bible. Along with the creative process, The Secret stresses the importance of feeling gratitude and visualizing in order to help oneâ€™s desires manifest. Byrne recommends to readers that they list everything that they feel grateful for, and along the way, this will only attract more positivity and lift the reader to a higher frequency. By using visualization, the mind becomes more focused on clearly communicating with the universe.
