From Nothing To Greatness!
Before I start I would like to just say thank you to The Secret Team and their leader, Rhonda for sharing this great secret with the world and changing the lives of so many for the better. I applaud you for your strength and determination to bring this out and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I was introduced to The Secret many years ago. Although I knew about it, I didn’t understand it. I think because I didn’t know how exactly apply it so I gave up. Also, I was a control freak and I always had to know “how” things would happen.
A couple of years ago we lost our home. Within 60 days the bank came and stripped us of everything and before I knew it, we were homeless, moving from family to friends before ending up in a motel. We lasted in the hotel for 6 weeks before I wasn’t able to pay anymore. As I went to work at 4 am every morning I would cry and pray for a better way of life, for a life comfortable enough that my family would be taken care of and a job where I would make more than enough money to pay for everything and save the majority. I knew I wasn’t just born to pay bills and die. I knew as I know now that I was destined for greatness.
Eventually, my family and I were in a family shelter. It was during the 5 months that I was in this shelter that I remembered The Secret and I watched it over and over. I started to put into action what I learned. I mean, after all, I really had nothing to lose, right?
Part of the deal when moving into the shelter was that you had to agree to give 70% of your checks to your worker assigned to you. They will then give it back to you at the end of your 6 months term. When it came time for me to start looking for a place of my own, I started online and honestly, it got me nowhere! So then I decided to get things moving and to drive around the city that I wanted to live in and look around. One night as I was driving home, I was so frustrated but trying to keep my cool as I remembered that any angry feeling is not a good feeling. As soon as I rejected those bad feelings, I turned the corner of the street I was on and I noticed a gentleman walking away from a sign that read “VACANCY”. Right away, I told myself that this was my home. I called the agent and we went to see the place. He apologized because he didn’t have the key. I knew it was a huge leap of faith but I said I would take it and thank you. The agent looked at me kind of bewildered and asked if I was sure. I told him that I was and where do I sign? He laughed and handed me the application.
Being that I had no credit at the time, I was scared but armed with The Secret. I rejected those feelings and started writing letters to myself addressed to my new address. I got my kids into it too by having them memorize our new address. Then the agent called and asked me if I could write a letter explaining why I didn’t have credit, so the owner could better understand my situation and I did. The agent told me that it was between me and another family. I knew without a doubt that the home was ours!
Three days later I signed a lease and I saw my home on the day we moved in and today we are still in this home!
This phase of my life taught me so much, most importantly to stop being such a control freak and that I don’t have to know the answer or the “how” to everything. I’m more confident now that I’m armed with knowledge from The Secret, The Power, and The Magic. I have a better paying job, another car and an SUV, trips overseas to the South Pacific to see family, and many other things.
Thank you for reading and I hope you find inspiration in my story. All the best to you today, tomorrow and always.
