It Came From Within.
In 2012 negativity was a synonym for my name. Bad thoughts, failure , rejection was all I could think of! Not that I am over ambitious, but I desperately wanted to get into my dream college for my post grad studies.
I tried but couldn’t get through! I felt all the more thrown away, dejected, and disillusioned.
One day, I went to my friend’s place and somehow her mother convinced me to read The Secret.
I was apprehensive. You see after all, what can a book do? I mean, how can it change your life?
I started reading it but not regularly though, but everything that the book said did hit me hard. I started changing my perception.
The next year in 2013 I still couldn’t make it to one of the good colleges.
But this time I did not take it as a failure, I took it as a lesson. I took it in that way that every time I tested The Secret. I applied it to small things like fights with my mom, with my friends etc. This time The Secret wanted to test me. God wanted to test. I couldn’t afford to be a failure here. I kept saying bring it on, man! I am all game for more.
When the results for the college I couldn’t get into arrived, everyone would say, “Dude it’s your second chance and still you haven’t been able to make it to a good college yet”. They tried hard to pull me down. But no one, no one can pull you down until and unless you let them do that.
I used to say just one thing to them: Wait for The Secret to unfold, wait.
They thought that failure made me go wild in philosophy. I know they thought about me as a jerk who was still not successful in proving herself. A stupid loser woman with insane thoughts.
While they were thinking all these ”nice” things about me, I was just thinking, believing and living just one thing: MY DREAM COLLEGE!
I was breathing that thought, smiling that thought, crying that thought and studying that thought. The happy faces of my family and my best friend. It was a visual film. I had directed it, scripted it and acted in it.
The one thing that was left was that film to hit the theaters for the world to see it.
It is a very normal story, but only I know how The Secret grew on me, or rather how I grew a year older with The Secret. It was an amazing thought, an amazing process.
And here I now am, sitting with my ipad in the campus of my college. My lecture is just about to begin. I am waiting for the professor to come.
You must have realised by now that my movie was a huge hit among the masses and I became an overnight star! :-}
So, signing off in The Secret style by thanking my family, my teacher, and my best friend for believing in me.
And last, but certainly not the least, THE SECRET for making me believe in it.
