The Secret To Academic Success
Every single day I am grateful for my discovery of The Secret, which came at the absolute perfect time in my life.
One night, after a grueling, stressful study session, I came downstairs to find my family watching The Secret. Sensing my anxiety about my upcoming exams and scholarship applications, my mother told me to sit down and watch. I told her I needed to keep working, but she insisted I trust her and watch the film.
After watching, I became fascinated with The Secret and began practicing gratitude and visualization in every area of my life. Within a month, I found out that I had won a scholarship worth $12,000 to my preferred post-secondary institution.
In order to keep the scholarship, I needed to achieve a 90% or above average on my final high school marks, no easy feat. I decided that instead of 90%, I would like my final average to add up to 92%.
For weeks leading up to my finals, all I could think about was “92%”. Finals passed, a month or so went by, and when I received my final high school transcript I added up my marks and had achieved a perfect average of 92%!
Now I am happily studying at Simon Fraser University, on full academic scholarship. And I am grateful every single day.
