The Return of The Secret to Africa
I was born and raised in a Christian family where I grew up to embrace the idea of God as the Big Man in the Sky, who is far away from human reality, eager to punish the bad guys and reserving a fabulous reward for the good fellows when they die and meet him in heaven. I did my best to be not only a good boy, but a very committed Christian as well. Yet as I grew up, the reality of sickness, hunger, poverty, inferiority, and discrimination began to weigh more and more upon me. My parents were so poor that I was educated thanks to the charity of my brothers, sisters, and cousins. Even in University I lived with relations and friends and wore the same set of clothes in a row. Growing up was so tough, hurting and sometimes so confusing, that deep within I did not really exist. I was just a body, being tossed around by the predominantly harsh circumstances of peasant African society.
Then a miracle happened. In the year 2002, I found the book Think and Grow Rich. I read it. It made a lot of sense to me, but my Poverty Mindset and Dependent Orientation was so chronic that it refused to unwind. All the same, Think and Grow Rich opened my eyes to the reality that there was more to life than I was experiencing, and that this ‘more’ was mine by right.
It is then that I took my first two steps to success. The first step was that I deliberately decided to take responsibility for my life, to defy my past, circumstances, and all the odds around me, and go for what I really wanted. The second step was that I made a resolution to read any inspirational book that came my way. As it turned out, great books began to literally jump at me. They appeared from nowhere, and since then, I have read hundreds of books by great authors and teachers like Ralph Waldo Emerson, Judge Thomas Troward, Kahlil Gibran, Charles Haanel, Wallace Wattles, Ralph Waldo Trine, Charles Fillmore, Genevieve Behrand, Charles Scwabb, Jack Canfield, Zig Ziglar, Napoleon Hill, Norman Vincent Pearle, Robert Schuller, just to name a few. I became practically addicted to these books, and as I read, my mind was enlightened, my self-confidence was boosted, I started looking at life with hope, optimism, and anticipation. But something was still missing. As I picked up and laid down each book, I knew instinctively that there was something in those pages that was eluding my attention. I knew there was a certain secret that was yet to reveal itself to me. I will narrate how I found the Secret Book and DVD in another story, but what I want to tell you here is that since I laid hands on The Secret, all the missing pieces have fallen into place. I am no longer a miserable helpless student desperately seeking the truth. I am now that Truth, that Power, that Abundance, that Magnificence, called LIFE. I was surprised that all the teachers quoted in The Secret were familiar to me, and that I read The Science of Getting Rich a year before Rhonda did. I now understand that the long period of study and waiting was an initiation phase, preparing me for the breaking of the new dawn which was The Coming of the Secret, not only to me as an individual, but to all who will be blessed and exalted by it through me.
Thanks to The Secret, I can now deliberately and certainly create the life I want. And as I raise up my heart in thanksgiving to Rhonda, to The Secret Teachers, to The Secret Team and to the Universe, there are two powerful intentions that flood my being. 1) To transform billions of lives with the magic of The Secret, beginning in Africa and 2) To meet Rhonda, Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield, Lisa Nichols, John Assaraf, and Rev Dr Beckwith face to face within 12 months from today.
