From slob to success!
My name is Laura. I began studying Fashion last September when I moved to London. I have always struggled with depression but told myself that this time would be different. I thought I would do well and make everyone proud, but I just did what I have always done… nothing. When I got assignments I would put them off until the last minute or think of an excuse to get an extension, and for what? To stay in bed all day and watch trashy TV.
The final straw came last week when I ran out of excuses for my late work and my depression became worse. I was walking past W.H smith and decided to go in to find a solution in the self-help section. I came across The Secret, and as I had heard of it before I knew the gist, but was skeptical as it sounded a bit wacky! I bought it anyway along with some other books, and began reading as soon as I got on the tube.
What happened next was amazing. I just felt this rush of electricity inside me, the type you get when you feel you have done a really good job or when you fall in love. It really was that intense, and I began to feel like I was capable of achieving everything I ever wanted. When I got home, I got the news that I had a project proposal due the following day that I didn’t know about. Usually this would make me go to bed and hide away, but I just felt content, like I just knew I could do it and that it wasn’t a problem.
Showing my proposal to my tutor the next day was even more of a boost… she loved it. For the first time ever she could find no fault with my work and said it was the best idea she had heard all day!
The following day (yesterday) happened to be my interview for a college place next year. I went in prepared with amazing work and passed their notoriously hard maths test. Needless to say the interview went well and I am now picturing myself getting the letter of acceptance! Thank you The Secret!
