There's a secret?

I came home today completely disgusted from my tournament results thus far and with a love /hate relationship with poker.

My moral was way down... So I grabbed a copy of "the Secret". For those who do not know what it is, "The Secret" is a book on positive mind set. It teaches you how to make your dreams come true through the laws of attraction. I read it before but it's been quite a while ago and felt I could use some reading on positivism. I am 2 chapter in and it totally works! I can see that I was looking at things from the wrong angles!

Here are a few quotes on the subject that I think you guys might like:

"If you are gonna be thinking anyway, you may as well think big". ~Donald Trump

"A man is the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes". ~Gandhi

"If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was
started with a dream and a mouse". ~Walt Disney

"Everything you can imagine is real". ~Pablo Picasso

"Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you". ~Oprah

"I dream for a living" ~Steven Spielberg

"To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance". ~Oscar Wilde

"The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do". ~Steve Jobs (co founder Apple Inc.)

"Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy". ~Ann Frank

"Just play, have fun. Enjoy the game" ~Michael Jordan

"Whether you think you can or think you can't, you are right". ~Henry Ford

"No matter how hard the past, one can always begin again today". ~Buddha

Now that I am getting all pumped up again, I will play some satellites tomorrow and kick some major ass at poker in the weeks to come!

I am sooo reading the whole book!
