Author, Creator, Executive Producer of The Secret
In late September 2004, Rhonda discovered an unfailing and unerring principle that permeates and underlies every single aspect of our lives. She was astonished that this life-transforming information was not widely known and practiced. In that moment she made it her life’s focus to share this knowledge with all people around the world, so that billions could powerfully transform and improve their lives.
Rhonda immediately began applying and studying this all-powerful knowledge, which was to become The Secret. She studied the work of the world’s finest minds – great thinkers, artists, scientists, inventors, discoverers and philosophers – drawing from fields as divergent as quantum physics, metaphysics, psychology, and religion.
She found again and again that the knowledge of this one principle had run like a golden thread through the lives and the teachings of all the prophets, seers, sages and saviours in the world’s history, and through the lives of all truly great men and women. Without exception she saw that all they had accomplished or attained had been done in full accordance with this one most powerful principle.
Already a successful television and film producer, Rhonda began practicing what she learned, using the Secret to make the film The Secret – attracting the resources she needed to have the production be an effortless and joyful odyssey. And just over one year later, The Secret was released to the world.
The Secret reveals the most powerful law of the universe and explains how anyone can use this law to create unlimited happiness, love, health, and prosperity in their lives.
Millions have viewed The Secret film since its release in March 2006. Rhonda’s book The Secret, available as an audio-book and printed book, is a #1 New York Times bestseller and has more than 16 million copies in more than 40 languages in print. Thank you letters in the hundreds of thousands have poured in to Rhonda and her team, all expressing deep gratitude for the sharing of The Secret. And according to Rhonda, this is just the beginning.
Rhonda was born in Australia and began her career as a radio producer. Her creative leadership led to a series of number-one rated programs. Rhonda moved into television production, joining Australia’s Nine Network, where she worked with one of the country’s most highly respected directors, Peter Faiman.
In 1994, Rhonda formed her own production company, Prime Time Productions. Her company produced top-rated shows such as The World’s Greatest Commercials, Great Escapes, OZ Encounters and Learners. Many of her shows won industry awards and were screened in major countries outside Australia. Rhonda’s experience, background, and skill in film and television production were instrumental in the creation of The Secret.
Rhonda expanded her Australia-based film and Television Company, Prime Time Productions, and now works with her teams in Melbourne, Chicago, Austin, and Los Angeles to create new and exceptional films, books, and other tools and experiences that inspire, uplift, and transform lives.
In May of 2007, Rhonda Byrne was recognized as one of the world’s most influential people in TIME magazine’s “The TIME 100: The People Who Shape Our World,” and shortly afterwards appeared in Forbes’ “The Celebrity 100” list. Rhonda currently lives outside of Los Angeles.
