I just noticed that I didn’t have any posts for the month of March yet. Well, I haven’t updated my blogs for quite some time. I don’t know. But, for the past few months, I became a studyholic. I’ve been focusing on my studies a lot, which I think is a good thing especially now that I’m a graduating student. I’m not yet completely done with my course requirements for the semester. But, I’m almost there. I just need to pass our Philosophy paper (group) and present my speech. By next week, I shall be free!
Since I got a lot of free time in my hands (well, not really), I decided to reread Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret. I have listened to the audiobook before but I didn’t pay much attention. In simple words, the law of attraction is the greatest secret.
I must admit that I worry about almost everything. Plus, I’m a bit pessimistic too. But I tell you, I’m trying my best to only think about positive thoughts and worry not about every little thing. So far, I think I’m doing well.
I live in a musical world. Of course, I’m kidding. But there are times when I worry and nervous about many things, I usually “sing” in my mind songs like “Everything’s Alright” (from Jesus Christ Superstar) or “Positive” (from Legally Blonde the Musical). I know, it’s weird!
I think I’m digressing too much. Back to the original topic.
One of the things I learned from reading The Secret is the power of visualization. If you want something, you need to visualize and believe that you have it. So, I turned my cork board into a “vision board” wherein I put up pictures of the things I want and I would look at them everyday and visualize as if I already have them.
What’s on my “vision board”?
Well, there’s a picture of the Oblation wearing the Sablay with the date May 8, 2010 (for my graduation), a cardboard wherein 1.0 is written (for good grades), a picture of Serendra (my dream condominium unit), a picture of Benitez Hall, College of Education (my dream college), and logos of different universities where I want to study (for my graduate studies).
I know that having a “vision board” alone wouldn’t make my dreams come true. Nevertheless, that “vision board” helps me to be focused and be motivated.
When I was dreaming of having a Blackberry phone, I decided to make the Blackberry Bold 9000 my laptop’s wallpaper. I would see it every time I open and close my laptop and it kept me focused and motivated to save for that phone. Few months (or weeks) after, I was able to buy it!
So, what do you think of The Secret, The Law of Attraction and this “vision board” sorcery?
