Got My Driving License In 60 Days!
I’ve known The Secret for years, bought the book, got the DVD and read so many inspiring stories. I longed for the day where I’d be able to write my own story to show my gratitude and also for inspiring those who need it.
When I graduated high school, I start my driving lessons but since I moved away for college I really didn’t get the time to do much to my dismay. I did a bit during summer break from 2010 to 2012 but not really helpful for any kind of progression. Plus, I was really just not in the right state of mind. I wasn’t really into driving as I was always nervous and dreading the next lesson. I knew The Secret but I was at the stage where I understood it intellectually but my inner self just couldn’t truly apply it correctly, meaning I couldn’t see how it would be possible for me to pass my test. So when the exam happened with no success, I was sad but not entirely surprised.
Fast forward, in 2015 I was a college graduate and was in full retrospection about my life, past and present. I was beginning to understand why some thinks worked out, why others didn’t. My main realization was that if I didn’t make some serious change I would never truly enjoy my life. It’s like they say at the end of The Secret video: a tiny voice inside me kept saying “you deserve to be happy” and for that I need to understand who I was to become what I truly want to be. I realized that I simply lacked self-confidence and I just couldn’t let go and give up control about the direction of my life.
And about the driving, I realized that I wanted it for the wrong reasons: not because I wanted to learn but because I felt like I had to do it because I was 18 and all my friends already had done it. Even when I succeeded in something, I felt like I didn’t deserve it, so obviously, how would the LOA work in my favor with this negative attitude?
I bought “The Magic” last October and everything changed. I applied every task from the book in 28 days with zero expectation and yet I could feel myself changing. I was happier, more self-confident, more positive and I realized how The Power of gratitude can really change your life. Even after reading the book, I would apply some of the guidelines and watch The Secret every day.
So as one of my goals was that I wanted a car which means going back to a driving school. And guess what? I found the best driving school with the nicest employees, I even got along great with fellow students. I registred on December 1st and I took my written test on december 22th and I got it!! The school told me that it was a record for them to have a student doing it in 2 weeks.
Then I started the 20 hrs driving lessons, every time before and after I would say thank you for the lesson, for all the progress that I made, for my 2 amazing teachers and their support. My goal wasn’t to get the license but to receive the car so I would say “Thank you Lord because I’m sending to the universe the intention of receiving my car”. I would remind myself to live in the moment without thinking about the rest.
And something unexpected happened. I enjoy my driving lessons, I always looked forward to them and I progressed quickly. Even though when there were few rough patches, I would remind myself to take each day at the time and to allow myself to make mistakes because it would only make me a better driver.
So my 1st lesson was on January 6th and this week I passed my test and I got it!!
Each day before the test, I wasn’t scared, I was actually excited and I basically acted as if I already had it. I wrote a thank you note to the driving school, printed the exam sheet with scores I wanted, I read The Secret Stories of people who also passed their tests. I looked for cars and good insurances deals for young drivers. I even saved a tweet which announced to my followers that I passed the test. Every morning, I meditated by showing appreciation and gratitude for anything impacting my life and I would visualize every morning driving to work or going on a road trip with my friends and driving my family to the mall. At night before sleeping I wrote in my daily gratitude book everything I was grateful for during the day.
The test went as smoothly and amazing as possible. I went for a swim the day before and I had my last few driving hours before the test so I was totally relaxed. The inspector was really delightful and supportive, my driving teacher was also there in support. I answered both questions correctly, I perfectly parked my car, the weather was great just like the traffic. I drove on the same roads I did before so it was even easier for me. My teacher even told me that this was the best driving I ever did since I started and I didn’t even see the time pass!
And the next monday, I saw the positive results in my email!
For me, the test was just more of a formality and the most important thing to remember was that this test didn’t define me, it’s how I reacted to it that did.
My family was so excited because they had no idea I was passing the test and now I’m driving my dad’s SUV which is the weirdest and best feeling in the same time!
So I truly wanted to say thank you to The Secret team, to the wonderful people who write their stories on this website and to Rhonda for her amazing books which helped me realize that it doesn’t matter how long it takes you to believe in the LOA and The Power of gratitude. As long as you do, everything will change for you for the best. Now I’m more excited for this new year and I know I’m going to accomplish all my goals.
To anyone who reads this remember that you are an amazing person who deserves to be happy. Allow yourself to be happy because you can accomplish anything that you set in your mind to, if you can dream it, you can do it. And again, no matter what’s happening to you it’s how you react to it that is going to affect your life. All you need to do is to trust yourself and the Universe and let it do the job while you focus on believing and receiving.
Love to everyone,
