To say that one of the featured person’s testimony is more significant than another’s would be invalid. The reason behind this is because The Secret is based on the universe having an abundant amount of resources for us to use at our disposal, so that we may go on living a richer lifestyle. Well, not everyone is chasing the same resource, which is to say that each person in this film specifically wanted something different, and obtained it.
“Pursuing money to the exclusion of everything else does not bring lasting happiness. I thought money alone would do it for me.
