The Secret Works!
I am a straight forward person. I love to hear the scientific side of all situations. However, I did not believe in magic. I heard of the law of attraction but safely assumed it was another quote to remind people to stay positive every now and then. I consider myself successful in my education as I was on scholarship, and also successful at work as I have higher than average pay. But I always would foresee a problematic situation coming in every working day. I presumed my colleagues in another region were under-performing and my boss was always changing his mind. True enough, I went through what I thought, affirming my blame was correct even more. That was until I read ‘The Secret’. I had heard about it numerous times, unfortunately no one told me how effective it was, not even my husband who got ‘The Secret’ 2 years back.
A few months ago I bought and read Andrew Matthews’ ‘How Life Works’. It changed by perception of life. I started by eliminating as much as complaining as I could for 1 day and I immediately felt the difference. My husband then suggested to me to read The Secret. I immediately took the book and finished it in a week. After understanding the law of attraction, I start practicing gratitude. I keep a notebook as a gratitude journal both at home and at my office and I reread it every day. I continue to read ‘How The Secret Changed My Life’.
One day I was faced with an issue at work so I was requested to meet with an external consultant to do an updated report. It happened almost immediately. It normally takes a month or two to get it done. I thought to apply The Secret. I visualized the consultant as a friendly consultant and that the report would be received very soon. Indeed he was friendly and quick in giving the quotation. Few days after I followed up with him. He said he had already done the work and was waiting for his boss to sign the report, viola! I was more than happy to know that, I got the report within 1 week and that’s real amazing!
On another occasion I was requested to attend an in-house training that was a 3 hours flight from my place. I was reluctant to go as I needed to concentrate on my work and I heard that it was going to be on a Saturday. I decided to test The Secret for the 2nd time. I visualized that I was attending the seminar on Thursday, wearing formal attire, leaving in a particular hotel and sharing room with my colleague. But somehow I still have this strong feeling of resentment about going. Then I received an email from my colleague saying that the seminar was scheduled on a Thursday. Yay! Along that week, I tried to visualized myself being in the hotel attending the training, but I really I just wanted to stay at my place. A few days before, I went to work in the morning and my colleague was confirming with me which flight to take, so we confirmed the flight in the morning. That same afternoon we were informed that the training was delayed until further notice. Wow, The Secret works!
A week ago when I was browsing the web, I came across a Visa Signature credit card and I was very interested in it. I took a look at the minimum salary requirement and imagined myself walking into the premium lounge of the Singapore International Airport. I have never been in a lounge before. I already had an existing credit card but I would love to have this one too. And then I forgot all about it. A few days ago I received a call from the bank offering me exactly the same card. And, the first benefit the telemarketing staff mentioned was the access to premium lounges! Believe it or not, The Secret really, really works!
Thank you Rhonda for sharing such an inspiring book with all of us! I am so grateful to have come across this! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
