Why I’m So Grateful For The Secret.
Many thanks to Rhonda Byrne for discovering The Secret and sharing it with billions around the World. The whole team featured in the teachings of The Secret deserves much respect, appreciation, and love. You have touched our lives in many ways. Thank you very much, thank you very much, thank you very much!
My first introduction to The Secret was five years ago when I started to cultivate reading all sorts of inspirational books that could contribute to self-development. While walking through downtown Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, I came across The Secret at a roadside book vender. Astonished by the title of the book, I wanted to know what it was about. I am still very grateful to the vendor for the explanations given that persuaded me to buy the book. Reading The Secret was my first experience completing a book in one shot, without losing concentration. Since then, Rhonda and The Secret team have become part of my family though I haven’t seen any of them in person. As I read the book, listen to the audio and watch the film now and then, I feel love for all of my heroes and heroines who are featured in that great book and film.
I can’t imagine what my life would be like today without The Secret. I have corrected the focus of my eyeglasses and changed my mindset. I was a pessimist who always anticipated failure and bad luck before I knew The Secret. Today, from nothing, I built a G+2 house, traveled across the world, managed four wonderful kids who are doing great in school and enjoy a great career as a project manager.
As my first deliberate attempt to test The Secret, I decided to build a house for my family. I didn’t know how I could do it and I didn’t have the money required to buy even a plot of land for construction of the house. All my income just covered our basic needs. A good friend of mine advised me to bid for a plot of land in response to a posting to bid for leasing plots of land from the city administration. I thought that was a great idea and submitted my best competitive price for a plot of land in a sealed envelope. Then life went on as usual and I didn’t even think about it again.
One month later, a friend of mine who was attending the bid openings, informed me that I won the bid! What great news! A few days later the city administration handed over the plot to me upon payment of only 10% of the total price.
I Googled for a design for my dream house, printed it out and put it on my vision board. Every other day for almost six months, I behaved like a child, feeling like I was getting what I wanted, my dream home. I built a small house at the edge of the plot and used it for temporary shelter for my family. That helped me to save money as I did not have to pay for a house rental. The main building, a G+2, was built a year later.
I am so grateful for The Secret drawing to me people, things and circumstances to realize the construction of my dream home.
Finally, I know that by the law of attraction, I will one day see Rhonda and the other great teachers of The Secret in person. I would like to say thank you very much in person. You are my heroes and heroines!!!
