Maybe this story is a good example of how the secret works:
I was at lunch yesterday with some people that I work with and one of the men at the table was talking about negative things and he was not in the best of moods. The waitress came to take his food order and he told her what he wanted. He sounded like he was being fake nice to the waitress when he ordered his food. The waitress was trying to be nice but I don’t think she liked how the man sounded when he ordered the food. When the waitress walked away the man said he didn’t think the waitress was being nice to him.
The man was so involved in his bad mood and negative thinking that he couldn’t even see that he wasn’t being pleasant to those around him, and he thought that those around him were not being pleasant to him.
The man got in a better mood after a while. The other man and I were talking about positive things and I think our mood rubbed off on him. It was interesting to me how each of our moods could change the moods of others.
I believe The Secret in this story is that each of us can change our world in either a positive or negative way. Our thoughts create our reality.
