Bob Doyle from The Secret
I am so excited to have the honor of interviewing Bob Doyle from The Secret fame! His people contacted me and I was surprised and thrilled to be part of his PR campaign.
Back in 2006, the book The Secret was published and sold like wild-fire through the personal and spiritual development world. It was also made into a movie.
This set off a trend about the Law of Attraction that made this Universal Law a household word and it seemed like everyone you knew put this energetic tool to work to manifest their deepest desires.
While many have had outrageous success following this process, others struggled. Still more encountered spotty results. What was the secret to The Secret that made it so effective for some, but not everyone?
Who Do You Want To Be?
Bob Doyle tackled the first big step right away. You need to know who the person is that you want to be. If you have a big dream about a different, better lifestyle, you need to start shifting into that person now. Who would you need to be to live that life?
You can learn to be that person. Bob said it might be the hardest thing you ever do, but certainly the most worthwhile. When you live more authentically, you will be far more powerful and able to create your desires.
When you achieve this, Doyle says the Law of Attraction takes over automatically and falls into place all on it’s own. In my mind, that means you will be in the flow of life and on your highest path. That’s so exciting!
Why Bob Drifted from the Law of Attraction
Over time, Bob realized that the Law of Attraction fell short too often. So, he shifted away from the purely mystical practice and learned about neuroplasticity and how to rewire your brain.
He says our brains are wired from birth, but all too often that wiring ends up being sort of faulty. What happens is our beliefs that we accept as 100% truth, are actually keeping us stuck in place. This is why he has moved beyond The Secret.
Everyone tells stories about their life. Unfortunately, those stories often keep us living small, drain our energy, and prevent the expansion we need. You may fully believe your stories, but that doesn’t make them true.
Why I Stopped Telling Some Stories
I can vouch for this myself and I talk about my experience with giving up one of my biggest stories during this interview. I had a corporate job that I hated.
For me the environment was toxic and there were too many rude, disrespectful, and downright mean people. I often told a series of stories about my encounters with these arrogant types.
Then one day I realized telling those stories didn’t make me happy or look good for that matter! Why was I even spending time on them? Then I asked myself what would be a better story to tell that would make me look and feel good?
That was an incredibly empowering question and from that time forward, I stopped telling those awful stories. This is exactly what Bob is talking about but in an even bigger way.
Self-Directed Neuroplasticity Exercises
For self-directed neuroplasticity exercises, Bob believes in practicing the thoughts you do want to dwell on. By rehearsing the stories you WANT to tell and LIVE, over and over again, they get into your subconscious mind and become your new truth.
To get started and learn about your own transformational style, take the TPT quiz Bob Doyle has put together. This is one of my most inspiring episodes, so please take time to listen soon. Thanks!
