Employed Through Belief And Knowing!
I am a 36-year old mother of 2, and I live in a town with low employment prospects. We relocated to my husband’s home town due to some financial trouble. Things went from bad to worse within a period of 4 months. At that point we started to urgently look for jobs all over the country. We were not successful at even securing interviews. I started to give in to despair.
Then I started to experiment with feeling good about a specific local job I wanted, even though I knew that the competition was tight and that my luck had not been good. Every day I would tell myself that the job was mine, and had been especially reserved for me. I would start to feel good and excited at how well my interview had gone, all in my imagination of course. I would picture myself working well with my colleagues and getting the best possible salary. This went on for weeks. At times I felt ridiculous, but I knew that consistency was key.
Meanwhile, things were still bad. We would have no money for food sometimes. Keeping my spirits up was not always easy, I must confess, especially watching my children suffer. I stopped sharing what I was doing with others, as they made me feel ridiculous. A small inner voice told me to be patient and wait. I kept on going with my affirmations and visualizations, just knowing and accepting that the job was mine.
Not long after this, I got invited for an interview and it went very well. I knew in my heart that the job was mine, even before setting foot in the building. Two days later I was offered the job, and it came with a fantastic salary!
My husband was stunned. I’ve never been so grateful in my life. Thank you for the wonderful books you’ve written.
