Don’t Lose Faith Even With A BIG Delay
I first got to know about The Secret a year and a half back. I would constantly read the stories written in the book Teen Power, whenever I felt low. This was during the time I was preparing for the CAT exam. In spite of not getting good scores in my mock tests (only around 40percentile almost in each mock test), I made my own result for the final exam score and imagined my counsellors/professors giving me a standing ovation for my great performance in the final exam. I had downloaded pictures of the institute I desired to be in, on my laptop. But all the colleges of this particular institute were out of Mumbai and being a mother of two very small daughters aged 6 and 3, I could not move out of Mumbai. I wanted to be balance both, being a student and a full time mother.
I still kept looking at the pictures and imagined myself walking in the campus of the college. My CAT result was out, I scored a 78 percentile.
To get into that institute, you need to score at least 99.5percentile. I had no choice but to forget about it and I went on to prepare for some other MBA entrance exams. Then one day while reading my mails, I came across a mail mentioning about a new part time MBA course introduced by the same institute, for people who are in Mumbai, had 5 years of work experience and had taken the CAT exam. This was the first time this institute would conduct a course in Mumbai.
I instantly realised that the Universe has specially designed, gift wrapped and made this course for me, as I fulfilled all the criteria. The only thing I was still scared of was, that an institute of such a reputation who takes regular full time MBA students only if they score 99.5 percentile in the CAT exam, will not even consider me for an interview.
Nope!! I was wrong. The institute did call me for an interview and guess what, I got through!! I am currently a student of the same institute I had posted a picture of. The institute has around 12 colleges and I study in one of them. It was the best thing that happened to me, as my main criteria of managing my kids as well as studies, got fulfilled.
I have a lot of dreams which are yet to be fulfilled. But I have full faith that though delayed (already delayed by 2 months) my dreams will be realised. My family will have a great life, abundant in all areas; health, happiness, wealth and knowledge. Will keep you posted when these wishes come true. Thank you Rhonda and The Secret Team. You guys have changed my outlook towards life. I was a pessimist, now on my way to becoming an optimist.
