The Secret was working before I even knew about it.

Before I had even viewed the DVD of The Secret, I was always aware that you have to be positive and always look for the good in people and concentrate on the great things in your life (there’s that song about accentuating the positive and eliminating the negative that I keep running through my head). Since watching the DVD and having my existing beliefs reaffirmed in such a wonderful way (I have to thank my dear friend Sandra for turning me on to the DVD), I have been looking for ways in which The Secret has already been working in my life, and I thought of one recently.
When I left my last job, I left without knowing where I would next land. I was however, confident I would find something good quickly - but what that might be I had no idea. The very day I left, I happened to get a message about volunteering at a museum. Mind you, I had not gotten a message from this museum in nearly two years (the last time I had volunteered there). Well, having some free time which I would not have had if I was working, I decided to go. It was there I met the museum organizer for the first time. He actually went out of his way to ask me if I was looking for work and, well I was! I sent him a resume, had an interview, and started working at my new job less than two weeks after leaving my old job. I just never doubted that I would find something quickly, and it just happened.
Funny thing is that I left the last place I was working because the people there were so negative, and I said to myself I would only work somewhere that I liked the people I work with, regardless of where it is or what I am doing. The group at my new job have become by friends, and because of the DVD I have been able to remove myself from my former circle of friends and concentrate only on those people and those things that bring a positive influence into my life. I am now happier than I have been in 15 years!
Also, I was recently shopping for some new suits, could not find anything I liked in my size, but I never doubted that I was going to find something. I was walking along the sidewalk and saw someone selling the DVD of The Secret on a quilt with a bunch of other DVDs. I bent down to look at it, stood up, and when I turned around there was a friend of mine I had not seen in ages and, you guessed it, he was working in a Men's store and this was his last day working there. He took me to his store and I had my suits within the hour. Had I not seen the DVD on that quilt I would have missed seeing him. The Secret… it works!
