I came to know about The Secret from a friend who mentioned it at work, and how it made sense to him when he watched the movie. At that time in my life I was at quite a low point, my life hadn’t quite turned out how I had pictured it.
I went home and watched the movie and I can truly say it made sense and gave me hope that everything could change and be as I wanted it. When I was growing up we weren’t well off, my parents worked hard and made sure we had all the necessities in life. I wanted to have more then enough money so I could do more of the things I love like traveling. So every day imagined and thanked the lord for being able to travel.
One day out of nowhere, my brother and sister in law asked me if I would like to accompany them on a trip through South East Asia. Without giving it a second thought I said yes. I knew everything would work out if I committed to it. Even though I didn’t have enough money at the time, I knew I would get it. The trip meanwhile kept getting bigger as they planned to stay in Bangkok and Singapore on the way back. I agreed to everything believing it would workout.
Time passed and money hadn’t shown up like I thought, I played lotto occasionally, thinking I might win. I still had to book flights for which I used my credit card and any savings for, knowing I would get the money for accommodations and spending. I was so positive that I told my brother and sister in law I would take care of their accommodations as a Christmas present for them, to which they agreed after some convincing. I had this picture in my mind of which hotels I would book and what rooms we would stay in, at times it felt like we were already there.
Time past and the due date came closer. I panicked occasionally but the stories on this site kept me going. Then before I knew it, it was a week before we were to leave and I did not have enough money to get us the place I promised. I pretty much didn’t know what to tell them, so I decided not to, and just keep my faith and really test The Secret.
It’s quite strange after following The Secret for awhile you just have this gut feeling like everything is going to be alright. It was only a few days left before the trip when I was in the mall with my mother to buy a few things that I needed for the trip. I had bought a lotto ticket a week before and thought I should check if I won. I did, but only $33 dollars.
At first I was disappointed. This would be nowhere near enough, but then I thought, why not be thankful for the money and buy another? Like they say in Hero, you never know when you will get want you want, it could be the every next time. So I did get another, my only problem would be that my flight was in the morning of the very next day of the draw. If I won I could not get the money.
The night of the draw I checked my ticket. I could not believe it, I won the jackpot!! I immediately called the customer services and asked what I could do. I was overjoyed and panicked all at once. I don’t know how everything worked out. I got to the airport check in, got a taxi to the lotto commission, got money put in my account and got a taxi back to the airport within an hour.
They say in Hero that just before you get your dream there is a final challenge, which seems like the death of your dream and you have to conquer it. I really appreciate this so much more than I would have if I had not been through this ordeal.
I’m so thankful to have knowledge of The Secret and The Secret Stories on this site which get you through the hardest of times.
