Byrne's Leap to Fame and Fortune
After a successful movie and book launch, Rhonda Byrne became even more famous when she was a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show.
Byrne was invited by Winfrey to talk about The Secret and the law of attraction on daytime television, which catapulted her fame even more and made her a familiar name in many households. The television show featured Byrne, along with four other law of attraction teachers who were part of creating The Secret film.
In 2007, she was listed in Time Magazine as being one of the top 100 people who shape the world. She has taught her philosophy about the law of attraction to millions of people, which has had a positive influence on countless lives. She also appeared in Forbes magazine, on "The Celebrity 100" list.
Currently, Byrne lives in Los Angeles, CA, and she has continued to work so that she can share the message of the law of attraction with as many people as possible.
Rhonda created The Secret during a personal crisis that she describes as....
“ Truly the worst time of my life, everything had fallen apart, emotionally, physically, financially.
My father died suddenly, my mother was completely grief stricken, I felt completely powerless.
I wept and wept and wept, just in total despair. I didn’t want my daughter to see me sobbing but she did and asked what was wrong.
She got a book and said “ here you are mum read this ” and it was The Science Of Getting Rich written by Wallace D. Wattles in 1910.
Something inside of me had me turn the pages one by one and I still remember my tears hitting the pages as I was reading it.
It gave me a glimpse of the secret, and it was like a flame lit inside of my heart and everyday since it’s just become a raging fire of wanting to share all of this with the world.
I read hundreds of books, listened to hundreds of hours of audio and in two and a half weeks I had traced the secret back through history.
Since I discovered the secret every single moment of my life has changed and I am living my life for the first time.”

"I call it going 3 for 3. Your thoughts, your feelings, and your actions all have to be firing simultaneously in the same direction.
"If you look at anybody who's not achieving what they desire and deserve in their life, you'll notice that one of those 3 is missing." - Rhonda Byrne
