Taking Control of Your Own Destiny
Like many of the people on this forum, I had heard of The Secret long before I ever started putting it into practice. My mother has been a proponent of it for many years, and it has only been recently that I have realized that I too, have been using The Secret all along.
A few years ago, I was struggling with very deep depression. I was suicidal, and attempted to end my life several times out of the sheer desperation of feeling like I would never be happy again. I was convinced that the world was “out to get me”, and was, in turn, a magnet for such people and events.
Four years later, I realize now that my negative outlook attracted even more bad energy into my life, fueling my depression and battles with the outside world.
My catalyst for change was the decision to pursue a higher education. I would be the first out of my family to graduate from college, and while school was effortless for me, the path to the school of my choice was one of the hardest I have ever faced.
I made a promise to myself to not let anything get in the way of my goals, no matter the obstacle. It was there that I feel I used The Secret, although unknowingly, to reach my ultimate goal. I refused to accept no for an answer because I knew in my heart that I would be successful. It was daunting at first While I had the grades, I had no available funds to pay for school. Out of two parents, only one was supportive of my decision, and ultimately, I lost the non-supportive parent in pursuing my dream.
I had to move over 3,000 miles across the country, as well as secure immigration forms to attend school. I told myself that NOTHING is impossible, and while I did not know how I was going to achieve my goal, I was confident that I would.
Two years later, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from one of the best design schools in the nation, and landed a job in my field during my last semester. Knowing that I achieved these things is proof to me that The Secret is real.
Lately I have been visualizing winning millions of dollars. Today I woke up late, but managed to be twenty minutes early to work, so I bought three lotto tickets. I have an uncanny feeling that today is my lucky day! Look for an update on my winnings soon!
Thank you, Rhonda. You have changed my life in so many ways!
