My whole life has been the law of attraction at play, ever since I was a kid, I have a crazy habit of dreaming too big and staying in my little bubble of ‘wonderful dreams’. My mom always said that it’s because I am such a kid, but I am 18 now. I don’t plan to ever give up dreaming big, because so far, most of my ‘insane’ dreams became true! The funny thing about dreaming so big is the pleasure of seeing the unbelievable materialize, you just can not doubt it.
So here’s my story. I was born in a third world country. I don’t want to be too specific, but I always wanted to go to America, like any little kid in a poor country does. I wanted to go to California even more specifically. I knew that was where most of the American fun was, and I would just sit and dream of life as a teenager in California; Having my own car, buying the latest iPhone, having a high class job, taking an acting class and having my whole family there with me. Of course at the time I didn’t know what the law of attraction was. I got the book ‘The Secret’ when I was 14 from my first boyfriend, and he was like, “I got a special book for you, check it out, I’m sure you’ll like it”.
So I read the whole thing in one day, and by that night I was already done with it. It all made sense to me. I started working out, dancing often, meditating, singing all the time, doing all the stuff that made me happy because I knew The Secret was in keeping my emotions positive.
Even when things were going terribly bad at home, and they did go really terrible, I would just remind myself to stay positive and that the whole Universe is on my side.
Fast forward to me now, 4 years later. I am a California resident, I have an amazing dreamy job in fashion. I have a car, the latest iPhone, my family is here in California too and we are here to stay. I even recently flew to LA and visited my most fantasized places from the Hollywood walk of fame to the LA stub hub center. I plan to visit New York this winter. Every once in a while I feel the urge to pinch myself , I can’t believe that this is my life !
All the material things in this story aren’t even my biggest achievements from The Secret. I am most thankful for the joy it brought to my life. I feel like those 4 years flew by because I was having fun most of the time and lifting myself up through out.
So here’s my advice to anyone doubting out there, anyone who feels like giving up. It’s a quote from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, “And when you want something, all the Universe conspires to helping you achieve it.”.
I couldn’t be more thankful to Rhonda, The Secret team and all the people who wrote their stories here that inspired me. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you so much!!!
