Tell Me Your Secrets

What's your secret?

The other day an employee of mine, Amanda, told me she was reading the book “The Secret.”

This is a very popular self-help book from 2006; there’s also a movie of the same name.

The bottom line of the book – the “secret” – is “The Law of Attraction.” That like attracts like. So if you think positively, and generally send positivity out into the world, positive things (success, happiness, etc.) will come back to you.

I’m not crazy about the book because it doesn’t talk enough about all of the compromise and sacrifice that goes into being truly happy and successful. It doesn’t address commitment. The book makes it all sound too easy.

But I do like the idea of a “secret.” Everyone has their own unique secret to their own unique success. Actually, most people have more than one, so let’s call it your “secret sauce.”

My secret sauce is my intensity and relentlessness mixed with my sideways thinking; I don’t think I see the world the way other people see it.

Amanda says her secret sauce is her ambition and drive. (“When I want something, I immediately get down to working on it.”) I think it’s also her organization.

Another employee says his secret sauce is his own sideways thinking, mixed with his sense of humor.

A doctor friends says his secret is “good hands, man.” “I can fix you,” he says. I love that.

What about you? What’s your secret sauce – the stuff in your DNA that makes you different?

And are you putting that sauce on your work?

Tell me what your secret sauce is in the comments section below, and I’ll repost the best ones later on!

  • Hello everyone, I am from Wembley, Britain. I want to write this testimony to tell others and thank Dr. Odunga for what he has done for me. The first 12 years of my marriage I had 5 miscarriages and I was called all sorts of names by my mother-in-law and this made my marriage life very hectic and a burden of sorrow. I contacted Dr. Odunga for help and I will say that he is a very strong and honest man and he indeed helped me solve my problem. I saw his email in a testimony and I contacted him, little did I know it would be the end of all my problems. After 2 days of contact, I received a fertility herb and he told me to use it. The herb worked and my husband even loved me more and bought me expensive things. One afternoon, I went to a nearby hospital and came back home with the positive result of my pregnancy and after 9 months I gave birth to a baby boy. Ever since I contacted Dr. Odunga, my story has been different. I have 3 children at present and I am very happy in my marriage. Please, contact him at OR Whats App him +2348167159012 to help you too
