DOUBLE OR NOTHING!
When I started my journalism career, my family offered me tons of support, which gave me the necessary drive to pursue my goal. I got a job at a local magazine company that paid little but showed a lot of promise. I made just enough to cover my rent, and my parents gave me just enough to make it through the month.
As the months went by, however, my dad started getting tired of paying most of my bills and went out of his way to show it. I understood that he wanted me to be more independent, but I started to become desperate. I wanted to make my folks happy, and I wanted to make enough money to be my own man. My desperation turned into depression as the end of the year approached, and I gave up hoping for the raise I’d been promised. I started to expect only bad things, and guess what? That’s exactly what I got.
My depression got to a point where I started feeling sick and tired all the time. Things were looking bad, and I just started hoping for a way out of all this. Then, out of the blue, a friend of mine who was aware of my situation asked me if I knew about The Secret. She gave me a copy of the DVD and asked me to just give it a chance. I’m not much into self-help advice, but I watched it that very night. What everyone on the DVD said was about me; I was causing bad things to happen to me through my thoughts. I cried that night, not sad tears but tears of joy. I knew I was going to be all right.
I began to use The Secret that very night. I began to think good thoughts, thoughts of wealth and happiness. I began to thank the Universe for the things I never thought about in my life, like my good health, the love of friends, even my job.
At the end of December, the company manager called me into his office and told me I would be getting a raise. The raise was small, and it wouldn’t cover all my expenses, but I thanked him and the Universe because I knew that I had asked, believed, and the receiving had begun.
At the beginning of January, I asked the Universe for something I now know is very possible. I asked for my monthly salary to double. I had no idea how it would happen, but I just believed it would. The Universe got to work immediately. I couldn’t see it happening, but I knew in my heart that it was.
Four months later, in April, I was asked to move to a different magazine within the same company. And guess what? The pay was twice my salary at the time. I knew it was because I believed. Then I thought, Hey, if it worked once, it could work again. I asked the Universe again for double my new salary. You won’t believe it, but four months later, the manager of the digital department asked me to join his team. And the pay? You guessed it: double my current salary.
The Secret has turned my life totally around. It’s hard to believe that one year was just as bad as I wanted it to be, and the next year was as good as I visualized and believed it to be. Every day is a gift these days. I know now that I am special and unique. The Universe is my friend and responds to my thoughts; my story is proof that The Secret truly works.
So, you’re probably wondering if I asked the Universe to double my salary yet again. Nope. I asked for happiness and abundance, and that’s what I’m receiving every day.
