From Nothing To Everything!
First I would want to thank The Secret, Rhonda Bryne and everyone in this world for making me what I am now. I have been following The Secret for three years now and life has literally transformed for me in every sense. I write my story hoping to inspire others and myself to follow this great belief more!
I had to give my All India Engineering entrance exam in 2007. My dream as every aspiring engineer’s dream was to get into an IIT, the best engineering institute in India. I used to work really hard. I studied for 17 hours on an average every day for two years for this competitive exam. Even with my excellent preparation, I had this fear of failing. A fear that all my hard work would go in vain if I don’t get into an IIT and thus attracted more negative thoughts. Rightly so, I couldnt make it. I missed it by a whisker. I was totally dejected, cried day and night for many days. My friends who never performed well till then, got into IIT and I was left out. I was thoroughly depressed.
I eventually got into an NIT which is among top 10 institutes in India. But I was never happy! My 1st year of engineering went by and I couldnt comprehend what is happenning with my life. I started to believe that I cannot do anything however hard I try! To make things worse, I lost a person who was my idol right from my childhood, my dear grandmom. This I just couldn’t digest, she was everything for me. I just wanted time to passby, I didn’t like talking to anyone. I became very short tempered and preferred solitude.
One fine day, I found this book, The Secret in my dads cupboard. His friend had given it to him sometime back but he had never read it. I took it and read it. At the first go, I said what’s there in this, everyone talks the same thing! But the other half of mind pushed me to try it. I slowly started experimenting with The Secret. In the same year, I met a wonderful person, a sister, a mentor, a very dear friend. We became good friends and close to each other in no time. She took care of me, we shared our sorrows happiness and everything. I was changing, my life was becoming much beautiful. Only later I realized that her birthday was on the same day of my grandmom’s passing away. I consider her as a reincarnation of my grandmother 🙂
Things started to change, I began to believe in The Secret firmly. I wanted to get into research in acoustics. I wished and used The Secret for me to get an opportunity in the summer of 2010 to do a research project in acoustics. I always wanted to visit a foreign country right from my childhood but had never got any chance. The Secret worked. In the summer of 2010, I got a research scholarship to do research in Germany and it was totally funded. I wished to go to one foreign country, but The Secret gave me a chance to visit 7 countries in Europe! Now I just couldn’t stop using The Secret, I applied The Secret for every small thing in my life and it works every time. I gifted this book to so many of my friends, I wanted everyone to have this amazing power.
And then came my final year. I applied to many universities for masters and phd. And till April 2011, I had got only rejects from most of the universities. I would have gone into depression again if not for The Secret. I believed that I am good and I will get a phd offer in a good university. And within a month, there is a full scholarship PhD offer from NTU Singapore in my mail inbox! And here I am doing my PhD in Singapore in exactly what I wanted to work on. The Secret is a daily business for me in PhD. PhD requires a lot of patience, commitment and more than anything hope. The Secret gives me all of these and even more. The Secret has given me the determination to work for 15 hours a day for all 7 days.
Apart from this, I am able to devote time for my music which is my first love. And what more, I met one of the most beautiful people on this earth one year back. I am truly in love with her. I thanked The Secret a million times for bringing her into my life. I expressed my love to her and she said it’s a no now, but we are still really close friends and I am sure one day she will definitely accept me sooon. We will live happily together throughout our lives, thank you for that secret. I know that until I have The Secret and I believe in myself, nothing can stop this from happening.
To all my friends out there who believe in The Secret, I want to tell you that this is just a gist of what I have experienced in the last 3 years because of The Secret. Writing my own story inspires me further to believe in it more. Life is so beautiful. Everything is possible! Thoughts become things.
Thank you God, Rhonda and all my wonderful friends 🙂 I will definitely be back here sooooon when she says a yes to me.
