Success Is Gold But Pleasure Platinum!
Right from childhood I knew that if I were confident about something, I’d always attain success in it. Whether is was an examination, a competition or simply something that I wished to have. I would get this confidence by working hard and believing that all the great things in life were supposed to happen to me, as I considered myself a special human being. At times when I would lack this confidence, I would fail almost imperceptibly. As a child I never knew about The Secret, but it now becomes clear to me that I actually did!
I grew up in a small town of India. I kept faith that this belief in getting what I wanted would take me places. And yes, it fetched me a lot of success in various arenas of life. Of course it did take a lot of hard work, but not without faith. However, as I had never heard of a similar story from anyone else or read about this anywhere. I did not actually know if it was my belief in myself or just sheer luck that was at my service. After I graduated and began teaching, a student of mine presented a video to me that read ‘The Secret- Law of Attraction’. I went home and watched the video only to discover that I was already following it all my life!
Knowing now that The Secret existed, I felt like giving it the biggest shot of my life. I aimed to bag something that I had never been close to in the past. I had recently taken admission for Post Graduation in Periodontology in a small place near my home town. It was a 3 year course with a single examination at the end. My aim was to secure the 1st rank in the entire university, that was for 30 colleges all over the Maharashtra State so it was not an easy job. Considering the village where I pursued my education one wouldn’t have thought it was possible. However, I did! So I asked for it, I believed, and was waiting to ‘receive’ it!
As the journey of the course began, hurdles began appearing one after another in the ugliest forms possible. I came across people who would try to hold me down. Many times I fell into situations that would only spoil the entire picture for me. Those 3 years were the years of trial. Everything that could go wrong, did! In fact, there was a time when I was coldly denied from appearing for the examination. I was declared incapable and the work I had done during the course was labeled insufficient. While everyone around was indulged in talks about my situation, I was happily drowned in the ‘belief” of getting what I aimed to. To make my belief stronger I had put in the work required during the entire course. In my leisure times, I would always picture myself appearing for the examination and performing well it in. Then I’d imagine me answering all the questions asked to me. I’d imagine the examiners praise me and say good things to me. I would then picture the day of the results. I’d imagine myself reading out my result and realizing that I had achieved an astounding score. I’d imagine myself as rank no. 1 beholding the title of the ‘University Topper’. I would also imagine getting a score that was never attained in the history of the university.
When the exams actually arrived, a million things went south. I caught flu and I could barely write. I got an infected eyelid. A few days later I got a swollen eye. A day before the practical examination, I met with an accident and I had to rush to the hospital where I spent the entire day. My exam patient cancelled his appointment, leaving me no time to prepare another one. So many things happened that people began thinking I was jinxed. But I knew the solution! And that was to believe and keep working towards it.
Time passed by and all my dreams came true! Right from the examiners praising me, me answering all the questions, getting the 1st rank, achieving a score record, everything became a fact. Laurels of my success began appearing in the newspapers and on hoardings in the State. People began calling, sending gifts, and dropping visits in order to convey their wishes to me. A lot of students began approaching me, requesting me to extend my guidance to them. I was offered a place in a well-known teaching academy. Life changed!
Whatever I achieved was indeed a big thing in itself. But what pleases me more was the unbreakable faith that I attained in The Secret. Although success is gold, this feeling that I earned is definitely platinum! This milestone was simply a trial for me. Now that I have tremendous faith in The Secret, I can clearly picture the ladder to my destiny that is much bigger than this achievement. I believe that The Magic wand is with me and all I have to do is command, believe and open my hands the receive. Nothing makes me happier than owning this!
I Believed I could! So I did!
I Believe I can! So I will! Period!
