A little change, a big beginning!!!
Hi my name is Kieffer. I can tell you that my life at my short age (Im 16 years old) has been difficult. Since I was a young boy my mom introduced me to reading and writing skills. Since then I fell in love with books and literature.
As years passed by, my family confronted a hard situation with a court case. Three years later the whole situation was settled and things were getting back to normal, but I wasnt happy about what those years had done to me. My personality changed, from a joyful kid to a man of short words and not many friends. I went hostile with everybody around me and years turned me into a rock, incapable of feeling joy or happiness or laughing at anything.
Suddenly I founded that I was way more different than teens of my age so I seek for the help of a martial artist master. He taught me most of the things I needed to know: that I am special and I am no different, and maybe I wasn’t like them but I wasn’t also different from them.
After a long time after I started reading books that might help me to understand my purpose, to guide me to achieve all the things I ever wanted.
One day I was entering at a bookstore and saw a lot of copies of a book titled: “The Secret”. I thought it was about some fiction history or a historical plot or something. Even though I was interested on buying it, I didn’t. A few months later 2 friends of mine were talking about the book. So I got interested in it but I didn’t get a copy.
A year later my life was getting better, but not as I wanted. I didn’t have the money I would need or like to have and my relationships weren’t as good as I wanted them to be. My life was about trying to climb out of the hole.
On Christmas Day my girl friend gifted me “The Secret”. I read a few pages over the first two weeks and then I stopped reading it ’cause I was reading other books for my literature class. Thereafter, I started reading it again. I started reading it slowly so I could be able to apply the theory and concepts. When I went a little bit further I said to myself: “this book is nuts”. The Secret was so simple that I couldn’t believe it, so I stopped reading it again.
A month later I started reading it all over again, but this time I was determined to change my life. Since I have economical problems and problems with my relationship, I started by testing the theory.
All I thought of was money. I started by saying to everybody that I was rich and that I had a lot of money. Then I made a list and I wrote: “I want $100 dollars,” then, “I have $100 dollars and I’m grateful for it”. Then I went to extremes. Since I knew I really didn’t have the money I drew $100 dollar on white paper and coloured it so then I could put it inside my wallet. I went nuts!
Can you believe that 2 hours later I received $20? It wasn’t really what I asked for but it was exactly in the moment that I needed it.
About my relationship, I was mad at my girlfriend. We went for lunch together to the cafeteria and I was so mad at her, so I started acting and pretending that everything was alright and that I was happy. 15 minutes later I was amazingly laughing and smiling. Dont know how. But I had a big smile on my face for the rest of the day.
Thats a little change that marked the big beginning of my life full of joy and happiness. Now I’m not climbing out of the hole. I’m climbing right towards a successful life. (Everyone thinks I’m nuts, but I know I’m not).
Now I live in harmony because of The Secret.
The Secret turned my life toward the right direction.
Thank you all!!!
