I had just bought a new computer a few weeks before, and I needed to pay my dad $2,000 for it. I kept putting off going out and getting a job, and I needed to stop procrastinating so that I could pay him the $2,000.
My aunt showed me the video and I wasn’t sure if I believed it. When I went home, I thought I’d try it, I mean, what the heck. I photocopied a one dollar bill (because I didn’t want to write on a real one) and with a sharpie, I wrote three zeros on it to make it $1,000. I put it in my desk, thinking I would just forget about it.
I went downstairs about 3 hours later and I was talking to my dad just about how my day was. Out of the blue, he said to me, “I want to make a deal with you about your computer.” He then asked me how much I thought my old laptop would cost. I said about $500. He said that he would “pay” me that so that I would just take that amount off the debt I owed him. He then said that he would pay half of the remaining $1500. I only had to pay $750 and I had just earned $1200.
Thank you for this movie… I now try to use The Secret every day. 🙂
