Secret Gifts.

 

One Thousand Gifts

In the most recent NY Times best seller list of hardcover advice & misc. category, #10  is The Secret (the “Law of Attraction” as a key to getting what you want) while #7, One Thousand Gifts has a much different theme. That book is all about gratitude, which isn’t about getting what we WANT; it’s on becoming who God designed us to be through continual gratitude. We attract God’s will by living each moment in the present, grateful for all things.

 

In reality, the secret to a successful life of joy and purpose comes not through greed (even attracting self-defined ‘good things’). The secret is gratitude.

Having read much of both books, I can highly recommend one [a thousand times over] but not the other.
