Abundant Job Opportunities
For almost a year I’ve been in the most boring job of my entire career. I was frustrated, uninterested, and disgusted. I decided in January of 2007 that this would be my year of change. I reached out to friends/colleagues and mentors for suggestions and inquired if anyone knew of a career counselor or coach that I could talk to about my situation. One of my dear friends suggested a career coach, and made an appointment to speak with her.
One of the first things she asked me was what did I want to do in my career. I began telling her that I didn’t want to be bored, I didn’t want to commute anymore, and she immediately stopped me and asked me again, WHAT DO YOU WANT??? She said to me “You are telling me all of the things you don’t want!” That’s when it occurred to me that I wasn’t very clear on what I wanted to do, all I knew is that I wanted out of my current situation.
My coach asked me if I had ever seen The Secret? I hadn’t. She told me she doesn’t normally lend it out, but felt that she could trust me, and lent me her copy of The Secret. Immediately after watching it, I understood what she was trying to tell me. I went home and made a list of all the things I was grateful for (which turned out to be over 3 pages long!) and then wrote all of the things I wanted. (1 page.)
Within a matter of weeks amazing things began to happen. I received a call from a colleague who (in my opinion has the perfect job) telling me how excited she was, that she just received the job offer of her dreams, and wanted to know if I wanted her job? Just like that! She already told her boss about me, and within the hour her boss called me and wanted to set up a time to meet with me. Days later I received a letter in the mail from a job I applied to months ago, telling me that I’ve met the required qualifications and my name has been placed on the list of people to be interviewed for that position. Just yesterday I received a phone call from someone saying that someone passed my resume along to them, and they wanted to interview me for a position they have available. I literally received 4 job opportunities within 10 days.
I am so thankful to that career counselor who told me about The Secret. It has literally transformed my life and my way of thinking. I am able to catch myself whenever I start to think negatively and immediately turn those thoughts into positive ones. I have bought several copies for family and loved ones, and I’m constantly amazed at how my life has changed since viewing The Secret.
The Secret has confirmed many things that I already knew and have been taught. The presentation is such an awesome and powerful medium and I’m grateful to Rhonda Byrne for putting this all together in such a wonderful package!
