    Loving the series, and Brian Keith Dalton is just brilliant. An inspired choice.

  2. Mark David Fourman says:

    Well said. The science just doesn’t support the claims of The Secret. In fact, following their advice reduces success.

    With some tweaks, and the willingness *to work* towards goals, there are ways to use visualization and action to produce results. I put together an article on the research-validated ways to act for success here:

  3. Focault says:

    What does science tell about the Law of Attraction? It tells that LoA doesn’t work. Do you need a proof by scientific evidence? Read this:

    But if you are a hard die believer in LoA, affected by cognitive bias, then please refuse to believe in science. For instance refuse to believe that your personal computer was built by using science knowledge, refuse to believe in Newton gravity law, refuse to believe in scientific evidence in general. Program your brain with positive thinking like a robot. Don’t accept your feelings as they are. Don’t love yourself as you are. Throw your life experience and your own judgment into the trash. Never desire to save your emotions.
