I was introduced to The Secret in my early teens, but I didn’t trust it. I mean you think happily about a thing and that shows up, believe me when is say I was a pessimistic person. If I wanted a thing, I would go about and tell everyone I didn’t want it and tell bad things about it. You, The Secret believers, would be surprised to know, I used to get it, even after so much of negativity! I had supportive family, I was school captain , the all rounder, was dating the person I loved the most, in short I had everything a perfect life meant!
But there was one thing that I always wanted; I wanted to be best in studies too. I was average at studies. I was best at everything I did. I wanted to be the best at this one to. I was going to face my first board exam, which is like a real big thing in India. I had to get 10cpga to get a scholar ship for my further studies. And so, I started doing what I was good at, I started to tell and believe I was doing really bad but this time to my shock I actually did bad. But thankfully it were the 1st preboard. I said to myself itâs OK, I have another preboard . I gave my negativity another try. It was worse than before!!
I couldn’t understand what was going wrong. I sat down by the side of my window in front of a bookshelf, it had âThe Secretâ book in it. I knew many people who had used it and did really well. I thought, why not to give it a try for myself? I took the book and started reading it.
As I read it I realized all the things I have achieved in my life, were the ones I really loved and wanted to happen. For example, when I was nominated for the school captain, I believed I was the one meant for it. My inner feeling was so strong and positive that even if I went about telling people I would lose, I would win! I did win the elections.
But this time it was a completely different case. I had to study, something I hated and so this time my inner feeling was completely surrounded by hatred and horror. By the time I reached the end of the book I realized I had to stop hating and have a belief, like I have always had!!
I believed in myself, prepared for the exam and went and wrote the final boards.To make the long story short I didn’t get 10cgpa, got 9.8cgpa which was good enough to get me a scholarship for my further studies!
From my understanding of The Secret I would just say itâs all about the feeling. If you feel good, feel awesome about something, it will show up. If you feel bad then also it will show up. Itâll show up exactly the way you felt about it!!
So feel happy and one of the best ways I do it that is to smile and laugh more often. Even if you have landed in the hell time of your life. Smile and be happy, at least you had what you wanted (may be once upon a time) and if you can still continue to feel good you can reach the heaven of happiness!!
