The Secret is working in Bangkok, Thailand!
I am a creative copywriter living in Thailand. I have read The Secret and have used it and succeeded.
One morning I read The Secret in my car during a morning traffic jam in Bangkok. I got to the part about how we could think how our day would be. That morning, I was supposed to present a radio spot script to my boss. I was quite nervous about it. But then I decided to use the Secret, and thought that it would be a fabulous day and that I would succeed in getting my boss to like my script. I asked for it and believed it and suddenly felt confident that it would be a cinch!
As I was waiting for my boss to arrive at the office, a colleague of mine came to my desk and said that my boss would not be coming in to the office after all, and that I would have to present the radio spot script to her on the phone. So, I called her and presented it. And it was sold!!! I was so happy and thankful.
There is another story I would like to share with you. It just happened today!!!
I am a Chinese descendant, and currently in Thailand we are during a Chinese no meat festival. We call it Jay festival, and it means that we will not eat all kinds of meat or dairy products for 10 days. This is a kind of merit-making for Chinese descendants, but many Thai natives also participate in the festival.
Today is Saturday, and I wanted to go to the movies; something I do almost every weekend. My most favorite part about going to the movies is not the movie itself but the popcorn! But then I realized that I could not eat the popcorn because it is cooked with butter! I felt like going to the movies today would not be as much fun without the popcorn. Suddenly, I had a thought! I asked the Universe to give me popcorn that was not cooked with butter. At first, I was not sure if the big Cineplex would do that; in fact, I was not sure if they COULD do that. But I realized that I had to believe in order to get it, so I did.
I went to the theater and bought a ticket. Then, when I approached the popcorn counter, at first I did not see the no-butter popcorn being sold. On the counter, they only sold the usual popcorn like they always had. I walked slowly past the counter, and guess what? At the end of the counter, there it was!!! It felt so surreal! The no-butter popcorn was being sold in a special glass container! I was so happy!
I know it seems like a very minute thing. But it is yet another incident that subtracts any doubts I may have from my thoughts! Now, I am ready for the much, much bigger things!!!
