Greetings to everyone…
my story won’t just yet be a story of a big success, but moreover a story about beginnings.
The year 2009 was the first year I was introduced to the idea of The Secret in a form of a collective present for my 19th birthday. I received the book, was encouraged to see the movie and felt really excited about the notion of creating your own life.
The problem is, I wasn’t 100% dedicated to it. Of course there was the initial enthusiasm, but slowly life grasped me in its everyday wheels again and I forgot to take time to read The Secret, practice its teachings and use gratitude. Well, I could call “life” the culprit but in fact, it was my own pessimism, that has dragged me down so many times before and blocked me from receiving the good.
Years ran, things were happening accidentally to me again, good, bad, worries, troubles, a few good moments inbetween, etc. until I felt empty and dispaired again and found my strength in the teaching of The Power. It opened my eyes regarding the flow of life. Nothing was bad. Even the things I felt were unfair to be happening, were actually pointing out something bigger and preventing me from becoming too narrow-minded and robotic, mostly in my school.
All of my life I have been the role model to my schoolmates. The best in grammar school, among the best in highschool, but at the university I felt like a complete failure. Regardless of how much time and effort I put into an exam, I would fail, and all of my friends would pass with ease. They would progress onto another level and me…well, I was limping behind. It had an enormous impact on my self-esteem. I had troubles explaining to people, who thought highly of me, that I was stuck in a rut, so I consequently started avoiding them. It was like a downward spiral. I was tense, agitated, frustrated, annoyed and really unhappy. I started to think of changing school, but somewhere half of the way and with the world yelling “Crisis!” in my ear, I didn’t consider that an option.
Instead, I started looking for signs. And I don’t know when, but it dawned on me. My vision became clear. I knew in a moment, what I wanted to do in life. The gifts life had given me were exactly what I needed to do well in that field. Plus the neccessary perseverance and struggles I had faced before were not barriers, but blessings to make me stronger. Instead of seeing my school as a big mistake, I saw it as a school for life. No better way to learn how to cope with challenges than challenges themselves. Therefore I’m grateful for them.
Creating a better life and following my dreams is something I intend to do in the future and with lightning speed. I will use all of Rhonda Byrne and her predecessors’ teachings and pray to a higher force for power and assistance.
To those who have read my story-thank you and please, send a good thought to me. It always touches my heart when I see people wishing each other well.
