The IIM Bangalore Story.
Firstly, a big thanks to Rhonda and The Secret Team and also to all those wonderful people who put up their stories here.
I gave this exam called the Common Admission Test (CAT) for admission into the premier institutes of management in India. My dream school was the Indian Institute of Management (IIM – B). A week before the exam, I remembered The Secret. I had read it 4 years ago but never really used it much. I would open the book and read whatever page it opened on until the day of my exam. The exam went well.
After the exam, I read the full book again. The visualization tools and the lines from the book by Jack Canfield helped me to realize the power the Universe has. Every morning I would say: “I want admission at IIM B. I believe I can have it. I believe that I deserve it and I know that it is possible for me.”. I used to visualize myself setting up my room in the hostel, having a gala time on the campus with friends, giving a presentation in the classroom, organizing events there and also having the ID of the institute. I stuck pictures of the campus, classrooms, library, hostels and every detail of the campus on the wall in my room. It helped me visualize better. Also, I never forgot to be grateful for whatever I had. I thanked God and the Universe for having such a lovely and supportive family, a nice and comfortable house to live in, for my awesome job where I am currently working, my amazing friends who stood by me throughout and for everything around me. I made it a point to utter “thank you” as many times as I could in the day. The mere thought of IIM-B would put a smile on my face.
As they say, smiles go miles and they definitely reached out to the Universe. On the day of my results, the screen splashed showing “Congratulations. We are pleased to inform you that you have been shortlisted for the next stage of the admission process at IIM Bangalore.”.
My joy knew no bounds. I thanked everyone again and again. Now, I look forward to cracking the interview and following the same visualization schedule daily to start school at IIM-B in June.
Thank you again.
