I was preparing for an exam for 12 months with complete faith that I'll grab a good rank.
Even some incidents took place which made it look like the universe was doing something for me. This boosted up my faith.
I accept that there were times which made some doubts in my mind but I always managed to retain faith.
And then, the exam. It wasn't as good as I was expecting.
I was upset for a few days and faith was destroyed.
Still, I gave my full to get back that utter faith. Again some incidents like 'news of low cutoffs', etc. were making my faith stronger.
And a day before result I was feeling weightless because of happiness. I had accepted it that I'll not only pass the exam, but also grab a good score.
And today was the result. I couldn't even pass the exam.
Now, I'm quite depressed. Feels like I wasted my parents' money and broke their hopes.
But that isn't a big problem. I can and will get back my faith on universal laws. It will hardly take few days.
The problem is that I've another exam coming in 20 days which is way much difficult than the first one.
I'm just curious to know what went wrong.
MOST of the time I was happy, enthusiastic and positive. I was getting better at giving good vibration to everyone. I ocassionally did visualisation, affirmation etc. Though I believe that utter faith is the best way to achoeve something.
Now I wish to clear out the next exam. My career is on stake.
I'm ready to give all of myself.
Perhaps you are looking at this incident in an unhelpful, disempowering way.
What if nothing went wrong? What if this was the best thing that could have happened?
What if there is a part of you that knows that your highest joy and excitement lies not within passing exams and gaining academic qualifications but within being who you really are regardless of society's controlling demands that you should conform to this-or-that career in order to play the artificial game of collecting as many lumps of paper and metal ("money") as possible.
Whenever anything doesn't go the way I expected, I basically ask myself a simple question...
What gift lies here for me in what has just happened?
I am a student, so I understand what you're going through. I believe a few things happened:
OK, buddy. Hope that helps a lot! Keep in touch. :)

You gave a clue that you did not feel good post-exam. I am thinking perhaps you were not prepared for the exam? If you accept that we are spiritual beings living a human existence, we still have to obey the physical laws, which means in your instance, you had to have studied and answered the questions correctly to get the passing score. Nothing magical about preparation. Also, examine how you were feeling and thinking about the exam during your prep period. You may also think about whether or not you really want to pursue this career or even whether you have the necessary skill-set and/or aptitude to be successful. So, as you prepare for your next exam, be mindful of how you are feeling as you prepare. Are you excited about the work? Do you find studying challenging and are full of expectation after you master small segments of the overall material? Are you happy to be on this path? Do you look forward to the time when you can study? Hope this is helpful.

I too had not prepared well,so to say,at that extent for the exam.I was feeling very depressed,I had only 2 months time for preparation while they say that minimum 6 months is needed to even qualify this tough exam in engineering.Then Someone told me about this affirmations,LOA or whatever you name them.I really studied hard those 2 months sincerely.But never forgot to keep calm and have a positive mentality in every situations.I gave many mock tests and scored well in most of them.Of course before giving the actual exam little doubts,fear hovered in my mind but I never let them to sabotage my positivity.Because I knew little doubt and tension is necessary for every candidate before exam.Finally I gave my long-awaited exam.Some questions ere tough but maximum easy.I never lost my cool.And during each and every moment of my exam(including those mock ones)I thanked God for whatever good and nice he had doen for me.After my exams were over I arranged some dummy results pic from the inetrnet and replaced their names,scores and other credentials with that of mine.I used to regularly visualize them in front of me with happiness and thanked God for the same."Thank you God for everything.I have given my exam so well and my results are very good.Now I can get admitted to those premium colleges or even get a good job.Thank You, Thank you very much."Finally my results came out and I scored 78.66% marks.The qualifying marks were 30 however.Now I have applied for many jobs as well as some good colleges for higher studies.I am waiting for their replies and I hope with his Grace and my affirmations i will succeed.Thank You.
