Surprise, it worked
I heard of The Secret and began listening to the CDs in my car in the summer of 2006. I was so interested in this concept, and took a while to realize one thing I really wanted. I decided I wanted to surprise my cynic of a husband with a check for $15,000 to pay off his car. He always rolled his eyes at me as I would go off to listen to another Secret CD.
Time passed and my check did not materialize, and my excitement and interest in The Secret practices waned.
Then, in January of 2007, my husband’s annual bonus was $14,184. He has never received a bonus over $5000 in all his years of working. Guess what we did with the money? We paid off his car!
