“Definitely not the same as before!”
All through my life there has always been a feeling deep inside that my belief was somehow important. Through the teachings of Jesus Christ, through many interesting events in my life, and the examples of many successful people throughout history, the power of belief was a recurring theme that kept popping up in various ways as what seemed to be many little reminders, or life’s way of saying, “Pay attention”. I did pay attention, but I never put it into practice. That’s because I didn’t truly believe. But I always knew that life was meant for so much more than the ordinary.
I guess that’s why the audio book of “The Secret” showed up in my life as a gift from my parents. They were passing through the city I lived in and took a short break to visit for the day. During the many hour drive to my apartment they often took time to do some casual shopping, and while at a bookstore they saw a copy of the book on audio CD and thought it might be helpful to me. I had been a divorced parent and was constantly struggling to make ends meet and to provide for my daughters. My bills were always just a bit larger than my income and I was always having to survive paycheck to paycheck while dealing with the challenges of having no daycare for my young daughters. Between jobs I would struggle to try and build my dream of building a business, but not knowing how I would do it without any money, and with very little credit, and the little credit I had was very poor. I had to rely on an old minivan that was living on borrowed time with 265,000 plus miles on it.
Then I listened to the audio CDs of “The Secret” and I immediately embraced the ideas! I could completely relate to the beginning of the audio where you can hear Rhonda Byrne take a sudden deep breath as her reaction to first reading the 100 year old book given to her by her daughter. I reacted very similarly as my eyes widened with the realization of what I was learning! I knew this to be true and began to try my best to put it into actual practice.
Within a month I had a brand new car. I shouldn’t have been able to get one. But every day I would thank God for my new car and I would feel the feelings of gratitude and happiness, and I would envision my hands holding the steering wheel of my new car. I even put images of new cars as a desktop background on my computer and in my screen-saver slide show. I have worked at car dealerships before and was then working at a dealership, so I knew the game. I knew that I would not qualify for a brand new car. But everything seemed to fall into place. For some strange reason, the banks approved the loan. Because of my credit rating, the payments were set too high for my comfort. But I could see that the universe was putting this all together, and I knew if the universe was to provide me with a car, then it would also provide me with the means to make the payments. With faith I took the plunge and bought the car.
It’s been over a year and I have been able to keep up with the payments. Even when I didn’t have enough money I would keep my faith and the universe would always provide the means to make the payments!
This is just one example of the many things that have happened to me since first hearing “The Secret”. After receiving the new car I knew it was very real. So I went and bought the DVD. I have made it a practice to watch the DVD as often as possible at home and to keep the audio CDs in my new car and listen to them almost every time I drive. My understanding of the law of attraction is growing every single day. Now the power of attraction is bringing bigger and more amazing things into my life!
I traveled overseas in 2006 and 2007 for short visits with my in-laws. In February of 2008, with the knowledge of the law of attraction, I traveled overseas to the other side of the world, I stayed for 3 months, met with many business people, toured factories and had successful business relations developed, had a successful board room meeting with the city government of an industrial city with a population of 1.6 million people, and met with another large manufacturer in a different city who in turn granted me the exclusive rights to be the first person to distribute their commercial products to the USA with a 49 state territory. All this has been accomplished with no serious professional credentials, no professional contacts of my own (only family and friends), and only enough money to survive. Business contacts through family and friends would show up at the right time and place. All kinds of doors just seemed to open for me. With faith I have walked through those doors not knowing what would happen, and I was always amazed! I have to tell you, the story is not over. It is just getting started. The images I have in my head are for much bigger and beautiful things and events.
Just a few days ago I downloaded the free E-book “The Science of Getting Rich” off The Secret website, and I am even more amazed. Now I am putting the principles into full time action every minute of every day. I can’t wait for what I am about to receive. I know it will be truly great. I am sharing this knowledge with others and hoping they will also see its beauty. I am currently using this knowledge to attract the right people and resources to form a corporation to handle my 49 state territory. With gratitude and faith, I know it will come into my life. I will make sure that every owner of our corporation is aware of “The Secret” and puts it into practice in our business dealings.
I want to say thank you to Rhonda Byrne and “The Secret” team for bringing this knowledge into my life. My life is definitely not the same as before!
