Life Is Good!
I watch the movie The Secret for the first time in 2007 and I really liked it. I read the book and over the years I went on with readings from the authors mentioned in The Secret. I was doing fine but I always felt an underlying feel of something missing.
One day in 2012, I became acquainted with this fellow. We clicked almost right away, as he’s of Italian origin and I was born in Italy and moved to the US as an adult. He was a brilliant guy, teaching in college and was having thousands of activities going on in his life. He has this peculiar way of greeting me with a “Life is good”. No matter when and where I would meet him, to my “How are you?”, he would always reply “Life is good” with a smile. I thought it was odd he kept repeating the same thing. But eventually, I somehow got influenced and I decided to do the same thing myself. When I would meet someone, my greeting was “Life is good”. And believe it not, it did make a difference.
In a matter of few days, perhaps a couple of weeks, I found myself with much more optimism and self confidence. After a few years, I can state with no doubt that the story we tell ourselves is the seed from which our life grows. Now I tell me myself that I am the one who can do what he wants. In fact I have been getting amazing results.
I am extremely grateful to those people, including the amazing authors of The Secret, who helped me to get to a point where I am actually in charge of my life.
Life is Good!
