Getting into my dream MBA program
I applied to three of the top MBA programs in the country last fall. I knew that I would be absolutely delighted to go to any of the schools and really just needed one admit. I was at a point in my career and life where I was ready to move on to the next challenge and I was convinced that MBA was the right move for me.
I got rejected by the toughest program, but did not lose heart. I was pretty sure that I would at least get into the easiest of the three. Everyone around me was convinced as well. I didn’t spend much time worrying about it or even thinking about it. Last week I was rejected by that program. I was stunned. I was humbled. I was worried now.
With one program left to go, my hopes of attending business school during the fall were diminishing. Then I came across the Secret. I watched the movie and obsessively read up about it online. I tried to clear all negative thoughts from my mind and focused on feeling like my acceptance from the third program was definite. I felt grateful for everything I had in my life which was a result of my unwavering faith that everything would work out. I realized that unwavering faith, which I had been told was my naivety, was actually the Secret that had allowed me to be successful.
Once again, the Secret worked! I got a call from the third school on Wednesday and am all set to start business school this fall. I am eternally grateful to all the forces of the universe and will try never to lose faith again
P.S. – I wrote this before I actually got into the program – The Secret helped me have faith that I would.
