From Insults To Abundant Success!!
Today is my birthday and the team of ‘The Secret’ plays a vital role in celebrating my existence in the world. So I start it with my heart full of gratitude!!
Just a turnback of my life: I was born and brought up in a poverty hit family where meeting our basic expenses was a big struggle. My dad being the single bread winner in our family, put his heart and soul into getting me educated. When I passed my higher secondary education my relatives demanded that he get me married. But my dad was very stubborn saying that he was going to educate me at least till my graduation. Seeing my dad’s hardship I never allowed others to question him. I put out my best and I won the “Best Outstanding Student Award” twice, in fine arts and I also won prizes in sports. Even though I was being ‘the best student’, I was thrown out of my college for non payment of fees when I was doing my m.com. I did 3 other courses through correspondence at the same time I was working a job to support my family. There were days when having two meals in one day was a celebration. Then my mom passed away and it shook my life totally.
In 2009, on May 25, I met with a terrible accident and was left bed ridden. All my relatives, even those who I thought were my best friends, left me. Only one person stood by my side and took care of me like a newborn child. I was paralysed. The doctors declared that either I would be dead or even if I survived, I would be bedridden.
Only at that time did I realize the value of life. How we often complain about what we don’t have but forget to be grateful with what we have. I prayed to God to forgive me for taking life for granted and always complaining and saying “Why did this happen to just me?”
Miraculously, I started recovering so fast and all the medical reports were made false. I was blessed to watch “The Secret” movie and I grabbed it with my whole heart. Gratitude and visualization became my oxygen from then on.
Now I celebrate my life full of gratitude, as promised to God. I am putting my one hundred percent involvement in whatever I do. I learn, I explore, I enjoy and I started living my life on my own terms with full passion. I am doing business in the intraday share market. I am also a certified trainer in NLP, a massage therapist for women, a councillor for bringing out people from depression, a partner in photography business, a model, a hypnotherapist and a motivational speaker. The list will keep on growing. I am doing social works out of passion, be it rescuing people at times of floods, creating awareness in child trafficking, donating hair for cancer patients, and creating libraries for poor kids.
Today I can walk, run, dance and at times, fly! In islam, we should not bow our head other than for Allah but I think Allah would be happy if I show my gratitude in that way to Rhonda Byrne and The Secret team. Please accept my standing ovation for making this normal person reach great heights worldwide. Thank you so much!!!
