8.17.10: A New Beginning
First of all, I want to thank everyone who has written their amazing experience with the law of attraction which encourages me to keep my faith and focus on my goals in life!
I know that this story is super long, but its worth it!
I first encountered the Secret in summer 2009. I was super bored and I was online killing time. I was thinking in my mind that I needed to do something productive to kill time and I was thinking what I could do online. Then I remember an Oprah commercial that talked about the Secret. I began to search on the Secret and I was so impressed with I was reading that I watched the film the same day. The film was so mind blowing that I took notes.
However, I really didnt practice it and I forgot about it. Then last summer 2010 I was admitted to an extensive summer research program. It was the worst experience of my life because it was beyond challenging for me to complete.
During the program (as we were all warned) I only slept 3 hours a day and when I get stressed out, I cant eat and thats what happened; I did not eat. I lacked confidence in myself and my capabilities to complete the program. After 2 weeks, I dropped out with a major depression that put me to bed for a whole month.
After dropping out from the program, I was so mentally unstable that there were many times that I almost took my life away. Every single day I cried thinking that I was a failure in life and I had hit rock bottom. I wasnt eating; I was in bed and slept most of the time. During the program, I made bad relationships with some faculty members since I couldnt complete it and I think what hurt the most was that they all believed that I could do it, but I failed. I was going to complete my honors thesis the following year, but I lacked self confidence that I decided not to do it.
I was so mentally unstable that I almost did not return back to school. Then after a month of major depression, I remembered the Secret. I wanted to change my life, but it was tough, I didnt know if I was strong enough. Then I found out that The Power was coming out in a few days on August 18, 2010. I then decided that on that day I was going to read the book and change my life for the better. Thats what I did.
Crying, I read the book because it was hard for me to take control over my life again. But then I declared to the universe that August 18, 2010 it would be the first day of my life.
Slowly I started to regain my life. Yes, sometimes I cried because I felt weak. But then my life stated transforming.
Thanks to my counselor, I was able to get placed with a research team with a faculty member who I wanted to work with for a while to get experience with research in order to complete my honors thesis next year. Now I am working on a research project and will present in a research symposium.
I created a vision board as well with things that I want to accomplish during the school year, which was to get 4.0s all 3 quarters, make great friends, get accepted to study abroad, etc.
Fast forward 7 months after 8/17/10. I was a 4.0 both Fall and Winter quarter. I was admitted to study abroad in Spain and will go for 4 months in the fall. I was admitted to a different research program at Ohio State University which everything is paid for. I made best friends and my social life is the best. All these things were in my vision board.
Think positive and dont lose faith!!!!
