The Origin of the Optimist Pram:
Clark Mills will be among the eight selected people in 2017 to join the 57 previously-recognized individuals who have been enshrined in the U.S. National Sailing Hall of Fame since the first class in 2011.

Many things have been written regarding the secret, some are even written by the contributors of the original book. But many of them fail to engage their audience any more than the original book and when I say engage the audience I mean reveal any further revelations than the original. Many people read the secret and attempted to practice what was inside, which was great but like an unfinished film it doesn’t really work or even make sense. Imagine reading a detective story getting to a pivotal plot twist, turning the page and are greeted by nothing more than blank empty pages. I know for a fact that I would be pretty annoyed and you need only to trawl the internet to see how annoyed people are about the apparent unfinished nature of the secret.
The worst thing about this attitude is the fact that many now call the secret or law of attraction a scam or snake oil and believe me it’s not. Have you ever wondered how someone who is wealthy and suddenly loses all his money, business. His life flushed down the toilet in the blink of an eye can somehow still manage in a short time to regain most of his previous wealth. At first I always used to think that it was because they have wealthy contacts that help them, but if you really think about it say your friend went out of business and wanted to borrow a substantial amount of money. Would you lend it? Because I know I would think twice before handing it over. So what is it about these people?
It seems to work on everything, for instance I bet everyone reading this has that friend who is good with the ladies or guys. I bet they are no better looking than you, don’t have more money than you and are at times quite obnoxious. So how do they do it? Whether they know it or not they are using the law of attraction to its maximum potential. How they maximise this potential is another thing.
Whereas the secret offered a stripped down, general version of the law of attraction other publications offer a fuller more involved version. The universal life secret offers this more fleshed out version covering how to attract women or men, wealth and much more. Not only does it offer the fleshy version, it also offers more concise instructions on how to utilise this amazing loophole in the contract of life. You can find out more here:
