I am twenty-four and used to be kind of depressed and never satisfied with myself, though everything was going on well in my life. I am well off, have amazing parents, I am very intelligent and always get good grades in my studies. I don’t know why but I was never very happy with myself. I always found my life boring and was in a depressed state. And many times I used to curse god and my fate and I cried a lot. I said to myself, “I will always remain sad and alone”.
Then last year in November 2011 a colleague at work noticed I was depressed and asked me to watch The Secret on youtube. I watched it, but it didn’t have that effect on me. I went to buy the books, The Power and The Secret and started reading.
When I started reading The Secret, I realised that all the bads things that had happened to me were due to the negativities that I had in me. I had so many bad thoughts!! And those thoughts were manisfesting and that’s why I was always sad and never got what I wanted. I always focused on what I didn’t want to happen, rather than on what I wanted to happen. For eg. when I had my boyfriend, I always thought that I didn’t want him to leave me for another girl and what happened, indeed left me for someone else. Many things like this happened in my life.
After reading The Secret, I changed my thoughts and instead of thinking of what I didn’t want to happen, I started concentrating on what I wanted to happen.
The company I was working at was going under some problems in December 2011. Directors and my team leader in the company I was working were resigning and even I wanted to leave the place and go somewhere else. I started looking for a job and said to myself, “My last day in the company will be on 13th Jan which is my birthday”.
It finally happened and I got another job offer within three weeks and offered me a salary 20% higher. On the 13th of Jan was indeed my last day in the company. After all this happened, I realised how the universe works to give you what you focus on and ask for from the bottom of your heart. When I was still working in my previous company, I wanted to get a salary increase and a promotion in Jan 2012, however in that company, salary revision and promotions are given in June only. I now realised that all these things happened (the directors and my team leader resigned, and I started looking for another job) just to make me get the promotion and the salary increase.
I am so grateful to the colleague that introduced me to The Secret, to Rhonda for writing this amazing book, and to the universe and God for giving me what I asked for… I am now asking for other things and focusing on them all the time. I make believe as if I already have them and I am so happy!!
