There's ALWAYS hope, and YOU are the answer.

It was almost a couple of year’s back that I found The Secret through a newspaper advert, and it suddenly caught my attention. I was going through a bad break-up, my boyfriend and I had been together a year and things were great, but things started changing. And one day I woke up to find the guy that I loved so much was no longer around and my world had shattered. I immediately wanted to get my hands on the book and hoped really bad that it worked. The first thing that The Secret worked for is helping me find the book. I didn’t realize this until after getting the book. My best friend happened to be at a book store and picked up an extra copy for me too. This was the first time she has ever given me a book to read! It happened because I had wished for the book. The Secret works!
I read the book over and over, every night I would flip through the book pick a random page and start reading it, and that would be enough to lift my spirits and keep me going for the next 24 hours. I had decided to do exactly what the book said, meanwhile I watched the movie as well, which I think helped me a great deal in focusing on the whole idea of LOA.
I knew in my heart that he would write to me that this wasn't the end of it, even though we had said our goodbyes. I knew that I would hear from him, even though my friends tried to tell me I should get over it. My best friend stood by me the whole time and she knew it would work if I believed in it. That helped a lot as well.
I focused on what ever I wanted to have and I would write down exactly what I wished for and I would read it and smile everyday. Some days were plain impossible to hold on to the belief but The Secret said to leave the 'hows' to the Universe. Most of us find this difficult to do although it’s out of habit. But if you let go of those fears and stop trying to find out how the impossible would turn possible, it will happen sooner than you could imagine. I realized I had to stop blocking the Universe's path. It always knows the quickest, easiest, most efficient way of making whatever you want happen. I hadn't heard from ex boyfriend in a month. Exactly one month later on the same date he sms'd me. We got talking and before we knew, we were back on again, better than before. If it weren't for The Secret I would have never had the faith to keep going and believing in my dreams. Its’ been almost 4 years now, and we're still in love and together, he's talked of marriage and some day I hope to marry him and make another dream come true. I know it will because I have The Secret with me.
I used The Secret to have a lot of things, along with my relationship. I was selected to represent my country on a global stage in the U.K in February this year out of 1200 applicants, this happened because I blocked out all the 'hows' of being able to compete with all the other brilliant applicants and just visualized being in the UK. Everything happened JUST as I wanted it to be, including the words of the lady who called up to let me know I was being chosen!
I then wanted to be able to secure admission to a good reputed University in the U.K. to pursue my post-graduate studies and I thought, if The Secret worked for so many other things, why not this? I applied. Unfortunately, the first couple of letters were rejection letters and I thought it wouldn't happen. But I changed the words on the rejection letters and put it up close to my bed so I could see the 'new and improved' acceptance letter…..and in a few days, I heard from among one of the best Universities I had applied to and I had been accepted and I was to leave in 20 days.
I am now happily pursuing my career and practicing The Secret. Some days when I had issues and things that don't go my way, I know I can change them. When I see no hope at all I still know I have one foolproof answer to all of the 'impossible' things. The Secret.
I would like to thank Rhonda and all the people who manage this website. This is an amazing idea for people to be able to share their stories and help and motivate and inspire others who might be looking for it. It helped me for sure. And thank you to all those people who shared their stories with complete strangers. In you I have found the inspiration to believe and keep faith. I hope my story does the same for others!
Take the first step…. you don't need to see the whole staircase, just take the first step!
