From Borrowing Money To A Win Of Quarter Million!
I am eternally grateful for The Secret as it has changed my life. I have enjoyed reading these stories for a long time, and they gave me so much encouragement, especially through a difficult time. I always knew that one day I would be sharing my story. The main lesson I have taken away from The Secret is that if you believe anything is possible, you are halfway there, because without faith, what is there? So, here is how my story goes:
I had an exciting job abroad and was earning so much that I never had to worry about my bank balance. I travelled the world, treated my family to holidays, hotels, concerts you name it, and I lived an abundant lifestyle. But in a split second, I injured myself and was sent home to the UK to recover. The long and short of it was that my insurance company declined my medical care and all responsibility. As a result, I lost my job, and with that, I lost my income and independence. I was in a lot of pain, and because my job was quite specialized, I could not find jobs in the UK matching my income. I started legal proceedings to fight it, and that fight took 2 years. During this painful time, I had to sell my car, motorbike, furniture and anything else not nailed down, just to pay our bills. We went to the supermarkets at closing time to buy reduced-price food as we couldn’t afford anything else. I had to ask my family for money and my boyfriend at the time was working hard to support both of us. He was also having to borrow money from his family and friends to get by, and he was racking up debt because of it.
Eventually, we had to put the house up for sale and move in with family. It was a very undignified time in our lives. I took what jobs I could but it wasn’t enough, and there were times my boyfriend didn’t even have enough fuel to get to a job. I was also studying for the last year of my degree too, and we were just exhausted, emotionally and physically.
But, despite the stress, we watched The Secret over and over. We made vision boards, meditated and trusted in divine timing, we believed this was a lesson we needed to experience, and we knew deep down this was temporary. We talked about the sports car we’d one day drive, the beautiful house we’d own, the places we’d travel to, and the abundant life we were destined to have. I always said we were going to be millionaires, and even while we were borrowing money, we told our family we would be rich one day, and they would give us a pitiful smirk, but we just knew that we would!
Fast forward to 2 years later. The house sold and I used the money to pay off the debt I owed to my family. Then a few months later, I won an out of court settlement and paid off all our debts in full. We took a bold step and moved area to a lovely home. I graduated, and we got married. I received physio for my injury, then we went on a holiday and I even got that sportscar! Then after a sign from the Universe, we came across a path we never knew existed, and we ended up investing in a training course in property, to learn how to make passive income. A year later, we now own several companies and we are living a full, abundant, and happy life full of love. And there is so much more to come because we believe there is!
We still watch The Secret and we have the apps too. We even gift The Secret books and DVDs to our family, friends, colleagues and a few strangers too, because we believe everyone is born to possess this power and they just need to understand how to use it. There are no limits. Pain is temporary so long as you move forward, no matter how difficult and unobtainable it may seem at the time.
