If ever there was a documentary that could (and should) be watched over and over and over again, it would be this one. That’s not to say that The Secret is for everyone! In fact, if what The Secret proposes is true, then only a small percentage of us will really take advantage of it. Nonetheless, this documentary is high on our list of inspirational and value-added documentaries to watch.

The Secret: What It’s Actually About
Plain and simple, The Secret is about the law of attraction and the (supposed) immense power it has over our lives.
According to those narrating this documentary, The Secret is powerful enough to heal illness, create wealth, discover true love, and bring to fruition even the craziest of dreams…but only if you truly believe.
While it may be hard to believe that The Secret is entirely true, this documentary provides a very compelling argument in its favor.
And really, what do you have to lose?
If nothing else, The Secret should give you the opportunity to dream to your heart’s content, even if it’s only for the duration of the film.
Should You Watch It?
Pros and Cons of The Secret
It’s also an easy watch. Because the concept is so simple, different variations of the same story are told over and over: someone faces adversity, has a dream, believes in it hard enough, it comes true.
You can watch this documentary while distracted by other things and still get something out of it (and something powerful, at that).
The downside of The Secret is also pretty clear: it can be a little hard to believe, especially for a cynic.
Illness and bad luck can strike even the happiest of people, so suggesting that our minds are strong enough to cure cancer, win the lottery, or avoid injury is a little naive and can be hard to stomach.
With that said, I definitely think you should watch The Secret. In fact, this documentary has been on our list of top documentaries for a long time.
And anyways, you have nothing to lose. Positive thinking certainly can’t backfire. 😉
