Some folks watched The Secret in 2006 and now have forgotten it. Maybe they imagine it was a fad, or worse, that “it didn’t work”. One of the master keys of The Secret is the right use of visualization, intention, and will power. It is NOT to make stuff appear out of thin air, or to force people to act the way we want!
The right use of visualization is to impress upon our subconscious mind what we want ourselves to do. When you were young, and visualized having a car & driving it, it was so that you would someday have a car and be able to drive it. And today, you actually drive it on auto-pilot. Thus, visualization is to train your auto-pilot so YOU create love and prosperity FROM you.
You do not need to apply your will to things in order to compel them to come to you. That would simply be trying to coerce God and would be foolish and useless.
You do not have to try to compel God to give you good things, any more than you have to use will power to make the sun rise.
You do not have to use your will power to conquer an unfriendly Deity, or to make stubborn and rebellious forces do your bidding. Substance is friendly to you, and is more anxious to give you what you want than you are to get it.
To get rich, you need only to use your will power upon yourself. When you know what to think and do, then you must use your will to compel yourself to think and do the right things. That is the legitimate use of the will in getting what you want to use it in holding yourself to the right course. Use your will to keep yourself thinking and acting in the certain way.”

The Secret always has and always will work. The Secret is about changing who we are, not how the world is. Visualize what you desire each day, with love in your heart, feeling good, ready to be the person who could receive it.
