Joe Vitale, The Law of Attraction and the Secret: An Introduction

I suspect there are very few people who I haven’t heard of Joe Vitale, the Law of Attraction or The Secret. For those of you who don’t know anything yet, here’s a two-minute overview.

Who is Joe Vitale?

Born in 1953 in Warren, Ohio, Joe Vitale attended Kent State University, where he majored in public relations and journalism. However, he failed to graduate. He later earned a Ph.D. in Metaphysical Sciences from the University of Metaphysics in Sedona, Arizona. Metaphysical science is the application of metaphysical reasoning to everyday situations, with the ultimate goal of helping people take control of their lives, solve difficult problems, overcome stress, and reach their true potential. Central to this approach is the notion of letting go of the idea that life is a drama in which we are actors, as it is this longing for the dramatic that brings conflict and pain into our lives.

Joe Vitale’s early success came as a copywriter, especially as the originator of “hypnotic copywriting” and “hypnotic marketing.” These techniques use a combination of compelling writing and subliminal techniques to attempt to persuade a potential customer to make that all-important purchase decision. In this capacity, Joe Vitale has worked for some of the world’s most successful companies.

Joe Vitale is also an advocate of Law of Attraction techniques and has published several books on the subject, including The pull factor Y Lost of Life Instruction Manual.

What is the law of attraction?

The Law of Attraction is a philosophical system that believes that ‘like attracts like’, that ‘you get what you think about; your thoughts determine your experience. Its origins date back to the late 19th century (and much further, considering the similarities between the Law of Attraction and elements of Hinduism, the world’s oldest living religion). The Law of Attraction teaches techniques to ‘attract’ what you want by changing the way you think and behave.

What is the secret?

The secret by Rhonda Byrne is, in a sense, a distillation of all the Law of Attraction works that came before. However, by avoiding the more esoteric ramblings of her predecessors, The secret has made the Law of Attraction accessible to just about anyone and anyone, with literally millions of people buying the DVD or book and entire online communities dedicated to the subject. She has even appeared on Larry King and Oprah Winfrey.

Joe Vitale figures prominently in The secretand now, along with Rhonda Byrne, Esther Hicks, and Beth and Lee McCain, she is seen as one of the world’s leading authorities on the subject.

Which I think brings us to the starting point.

Thanks for your time.
