The Cynic Has Left The Room.
I had been a pessimist all my life. That is what I had been taught: to doubt, to assume the worst and to prepare for the worst. Life is hard and people are generally there to screw you over. So before life hands you lemons, scrunch up and get your face ready to get soured up anyway.
I started reading The Secret because of the hype about it all around me. Oprah, friends, Youtube, ads, etc. So my pattern was this: read, be in awe and inspired, follow for a few days, then give up because the results are too good to be true.
Then one day while driving to work and listening to The Power audiobook, I realised that feeling good does not cost me anything. Looking at the positive side of things isn’t really taking anything out of me, so I started by just flipping every possible scenario into positive. So if I missed my train I told myself it was because I needed to go on the next one where I will meet a friend, and if I don’t make it to work on time that’s okay, my boss won’t be there anyway. And lo and behold, stuff started to actually turn out to be the way I would imagine it!
These were the small things. The best and biggest thing that has come out of this lifestyle for me is that I attracted my dream partner. I had been in an unhappy marriage for 6 years and I didn’t want to leave because my husband was a good guy and I had a son with him. I felt guilty but then I started imagining myself with my dream guy and I would envision us happy and in love and he had all the qualities I wanted!
My ex husband decided to leave me of his own accord and the whole thing ended on good terms. I am so happy today with my new love and I have my son with me too. Plus I received a huge cheque as inheritance from a distant relative. The money I got is more than enough for me to live a comfortable life. I donated a significant portion to the Palestinian children because they are very close to my heart.
Today, I am happy, I look great, I feel young, I have my dream partner, I have enough money and I have my son and a beautiful daughter on the way. My story all started from one good thought that led to a conscious decision to alter my way of thinking for the better. Wishing all readers the same success!
