6th form :)
First of all I want to say thank you to Rhonda (and God) I don’t think I can express my gratitude in words. Also thank you to everyone who writes stories to give me hope, especially Ibrahams (from Jakarta, Indonesia) who was in the same boat I was 🙂
I heard about The Secret from my Mum in 2007 who heard from her cousin (therefore my aunt). My aunt used to live in America and at that time The Secret was just starting to become huge but it still was in the early stages of world wide growth.
To be honest I didn’t understand it, I was ignorant back then, then again I was only 12 years old. I thought it would be like ‘I want 100 pounds’ then it would magically turn up. Anyway last year in November I applied for a school one of the best in North London where 6,000 people apply for only 600 places. I found out in February I didn’t get in and I cried so much I used up all my tears haha. To make matters worse, three of my friends got in (even though one is going to a different school).
In the letter it said, “You can re-apply if your results get better”. Luckily they did! So in May/June I randomly remembered The Secret, it was funny it popped up in my mind. I started thinking positively, acting as if I’d already gotten in. I created a vision board, watched the first 20 mins of The Secret every day, read and re-read stories in the education field. I felt a bit like a crazy person but it felt good. Every day I’d take a moment close my eyes and imagine. My friends helped me without knowing, they’d always shout ‘look its your school!!’ I ignored people who were sending negative energy, I don’t think they meant it in a mean way saying things like “What if you don’t get in” because I knew that wasn’t an option.
About 2 weeks ago I sent my updated better results to the school. I had the interview last Friday and it was seriously like an interview for ‘The Apprentice’. Doubts creeped in slightly but I tried to keep positive and today in the post came a bulky letter for me. I have an offer to the school I wanted. Honestly it’s such a relief, mum is happy I’m happy and now I can now enjoy my long summer holiday!!!! 🙂
Just remember: Believe+graditude= receive.
If you read my story, thank you.
