I wasn’t a self-help person as a student.
I told you that I bought my first self-help book, The Cashflow Quadrant, on a business trip to Melbourne when I was an engineer.
Through the book, I got to know a list of other self-help books. One of them was Think And Grow Rich.
I can say, I gained my enlightenment after reading Think And Grow Rich.
Actually there was a reason why I believed in the book so quickly.
It resonated with me.
While reading, I could relate and explain what had happened in my student life.
In my first year in the University, I was the Chairperson for the organizing committee of Engineering Convention. I set a goal to raise $5000 of sponsorship and indeed we got exactly that.
In my second year, I ran for an election to become the Executive in the Student Union. I got it.
Academically, I was selected to take up Accelerated Masters Program, a program that can reduce my Honours and Masters degree by 1.5 year. The criteria to stay in this program was that I needed an average of A in every term.
Again, I survived that.
Even before reading Think And Grow Rich, I already felt that there was an invisible force that was helping us to achieve the vision in our mind.
Whatever I saw in my mind’s eye, I saw it in reality.
After reading Think And Grow Rich, I finally understood the existence of the Infinite Intelligence and Subconscious Mind, and how they work together to bring thoughts into reality.
It explained why I was able to achieve every single goal I had set in my student years.
That’s the reason why I believed in the book the first time I read it.
