I’m Simmy and I’m 16. This year I’ve been going through hell but then I discovered The Secret. My friend advised me to read the book and it was pure coincidence (or not) that 2 days later I found the book at my Uncle’s place. As Rhonda Byrne would say: “The book stumbled across me”
Here in Mauritius, we’ve got to sit for an exam called the School Certificate. It’s really hard and I was unprepared. I was depressed and at home everything was going from bad to worse.
When I read the book I began to understand that I was concentrating on everything that I did not want rather than the contrary. So I began to put The Secret into practice and I went to the examination room fearless and confident. When my parents asked me about the paper I’d tell them that I would score six aggregates (best result) but no one would believe me. They would say that I was becoming too pretentious.
Everyday I would repeat: “Thank you for my excellent result”. And finally when it was time to fetch my result slip, I kept convincing myself that I had scored six aggregates. Part of me was surprise but part of me was not: I HAD SCORED SIX AGGREGATES.
I wanted to thank you all. That day I wanted to cry (of joy) and I still have that kind of urge or feeling. I don’t know how to explain but I guess that’s what you guys call the feeling of gratitude. Thank you.
