Trucks and Sandwiches
I am still very new to The Secret, and have two very short stories about my experiences with it, that may provide others with confidence that its principles work. I believe I will be sharing other stories in the near future.
I read and watched The Secret about a month ago. 3 weeks ago I decided to go test-drive a new truck just for fun. I am out of work right now due to a personal injury and knew that I couldn’t afford to trade my old truck in for something better, but I just thought it would be fun. I test drove a brand new truck with all the upgrades I have been wanting. They let me drive it home and show my wife. She liked it, but warned that I was not to buy it and bring it home, unless they could come close to matching our currents monthly payments. The new truck costs so much more that my old one. I did not know how in the world the dealership could offer us payments close to what we were already budgeting. I just felt like the truck was mine, so I adjusted all the radio stations to the line-up I like as if it was my truck on my way back to the dealership. Two hours later, the dealership offered a payment deal that convinced my wife to say “come on home with it!” I already had the radio set for the ride home!
That was big! I knew then that there was something to this. So last Thursday morning I asked the universe for a free sandwich. I didn’t care when that day or where, or even what kind of sandwich, I just simply wanted a free sandwich. About 3 hours later I got a call from my mom asking if I would like to hang out with her that afternoon while she did some shopping. I said yes. When I hung up the phone I realized that the universe had just given me my wish. Whenever I hang out with my mom, she always treats me to lunch. I got to choose where to go for lunch, and I got my free sandwich.
I now know The Secret does in fact work. But, at the same time, its not always easy, especially when it comes to big dreams! Doubt always finds a way to creep in at times. But I’m gonna start practicing a method I read about from another reader on this site. Whenever doubts creeps in about one of my desires or wishes I’m gonna stop that thought where it starts, and replace with imagery of my desire that makes me feel good, then I’m gonna smile as big as I can until that doubt runs away.
Thank you so much to every one who shares their stories here. It is really helping me better use the tools and gain more and more confidence in The Secret. And of course a heartfelt thanks goes out to God, the Universe, and The Secret Team.
