I read The Secret two years ago. I think I attracted the book. My life was not going according to my desire. I was not sure what I wanted to be in life in reference to my studies. Since I was a kid whenever anybody asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always had a different answer. Even when there was a choice in front of me as to what course I wanted to pursue, I was undecided. I did not know what my heart wanted. I have always been good at studies since childhood, and got good grades, and I landed up in an engineering college. I was going with the flow. Going where life was taking me. Blown in the wind like a feather. Going wherever I thought destiny was taking me.
I entered the engineering college and did not know what I was doing there. The studies did not interest me much. I was struggling. I had always been a topper since school and got good marks in all subjects. This was a big blow to my self confidence. I managed to score 58% and pass class. This went on till my second year. My self confidence kept being crushed and stamped and kicked with the result of every coming semester. And then The Secret came into my life.
In the beginning it was like a tennis game in my mind. Half the time I was visualizing and the rest of the time I was worried, nervous, and skeptical about it. Then gradually I got a hang of it. I attracted a very good friend who studied with me. She gave me the hope and the techniques of studying. I don’t know, but whenever I am around her I am always positive and smiling and happy. I started enjoying my studies. Then I eagerly waited for the results. I managed to get 71%, and in the next exam 75%, and stood 7th out of 200 students. Everybody was surprised and happy and my self-confidence came soaring up like a helium balloon. Guys, there is a lot of difference between doing things just for the sake of it and enjoying what you do. The Secret works, seriously.
I am a Hindu and deeply in love with a Muslim guy. He’s my true love. We have been in a relationship for the last seven years. We used to play together when we were kids. He’s a really caring and a loving guy – perfect for me. I have never loved anybody else in my life. I have beautiful parents who have sacrificed so much in their life to give me a good education and upbringing. But I cannot tell them about our relationship. Hindus and Muslims are prejudiced against each other since decades. Even he has not told his parents. I love my parents a lot and I love him equally. They are two wheels of my life. My life cannot go on without either. I want to marry him but I don’t want to elope and spoil my parents name in society. I hope The Secret and my love will help me win over hatred and prejudice. I want to convince my parents to accept him and want to be accepted by his family as well. And in the deepest corners of my heart I know that I am going to achieve this uphill task. I know he’s the one for me. There can be no other way for me.
