From Bad to Great
My story starts with me working two jobs, not making enough money to pay my bills, my credit in the dumps because I have been unable to pay my credit cards for a year, and a me laying in bed crying and being mad about life and wanting to change it.
A week or so after my “breakdown” my wife went into labor and had our 2nd daughter (my first). It was an amazing experience. I took two weeks off to stay home. The first week my mother-in-law was telling us about this book she was reading, THE SECRET. She told us about it, I started to think that I needed to get my hands on this book, I need this book. The next Monday my mother-in-law came and gave me the book to read. This is where it began…I started to read the book and doing what it said, and these are the results so far from 8/10/2007 to 10/5/07…
1. Got the book in my hands
2. Went from server (3.75 plus tips-not alot) to hourly manager($14/hr) at my second job
3.Got an unexpected check for $300 or so in the mail
4.Wife’s grandma took us on a mini vacation, all expenses paid
5. Ordered the movie version of THE SECRET on a rental movie website, status was “very long wait”, told myself I would get this soon, three days later it was being shipped to me
6.Went golfing, my uncle treated, haven’t golfed for over a year
7.My manager let me borrow 2k to catch up on my immediate bills and pay a loan off, I printed out the check from this website and wrote $2000 on it a month and 1/2 ago
8.My bro-in-law took me to a baseball playoff game
9.Told myself I would have a new job that paid me 45k to 55k by the end of Sept. Didn’t happen…late Sept got a call to an interview, today 10/5/07 got a job offer with a salary of 44k (10k more than what I make now), do you think I am disappointed – NO
This way of thinking works, it has changed our lives forever, my life is a complete transformation.
Everyone reading this, stay with it, stay focused on it, stay positive, have faith, and know you deserve it. I wish you all joy.
