First experiencing the Secret
In the fall of 2006 I just moved out of my parents house and left my serious girlfriend to go to college three hours away. This was the first time I had been on my own, and I had a really hard time leaving my girlfriend who I loved. I began to really struggle with life and being happy. My girlfriend and I began fighting and decided it would be best if we stopped talking to each other.
After the school year ended I moved back home for the summer to work. My mom had read The Secret and strongly recommended me to read it. As I read, the ideas really started making sense to me. I started to change my thoughts and my attitude toward life. I started writing down goals of things I wanted to achieve the next year. Every day I would close my eyes and visualize my self working at the snowboard shop in the town I was going to school in.
When it was time for me to go back to school I noticed things were changing for the better. Within weeks I had already made tons of new friends. One night at a party I met a girl I was very attracted to. So I figured I would use the Secret to see if it would work. The next day that same girl’s friend called me and asked me if I wanted to go to breakfast with them. I felt the Secret was really working. A few days later we started dating, and on the first date she was wearing the same color clothes as I had imagined.
I kept focusing on getting a job at the snowboard shop. One day I stopped by the shop for some shoes, and the manager just straight asked me if I could work there. I was blown away, but I knew it was because of my practice of visualization and positive attitude. I am still working there today, as well as using the Secret in my daily life.
As for my old girlfriend, we began talking again and are now close friends again.
