In 2001 my whole life fell apart. My wife and I eventually separated after years of bad living. Our children were all in an emotional mess, and their lives seem to be heading in the direction of failure. Each and every day I struggled with depression, and occasionally I seriously considered committing suicide. I confided in one of my brothers who lives in the U.S. He invited me to come and stay with him for a while in an effort to clear my head. Prior to me coming to the U.S he promised me financial help. What happened when I got here is that I saw him win and spend thousands of dollars while reneging on his promise to me. This is when I started searching the internet for answers as to why some people just seem to attract money/success so easily while some others do not.
One day during one of my usual searchings of the “net”, I came upon an add offering the secret to attracting money, your soul mate, and success in general. The problem is that I did not and still do not have any money or even a credit card to purchase the e-book.
This is where things got interesting. I became so obsessed with purchasing this particular e-book that I kept thinking about ways of getting it day and night. At one time I even made an offer to the the editor – I wrote her asking her to give me the e-book and proposed that when I used her secrets (if it is as effective as she says) I will pay her after the fact. Of course she did not agree.
About two weeks into my obsession I went to a wholesale outlet with my brother. While browsing through a pile of books that were on a table, he suddenly came to me and handed me this book marked THE SECRET and said, “This is what you are looking for”. The strange thing is I never told him about my obsession. Needless to say when I started reading The Secret I just could not put it down, because from my observation it contains all the answers to my life-long questions.
