Getting clear and then asking
My wife and I wanted to move to a place with better schools. I had a good job, but didn’t have enough money for a down payment on a new house. I also wanted a better job, because the place was just getting harder and harder to be happy in, but it paid well and my wife would have killed me if I switched jobs when we wanted to move. She said it just was bad timing. We also wanted to take the kids to Disneyworld, but again didn’t have the money, and my company was talking about layoffs, so I felt that everything we wanted to do was on hold until, well, things changed.
I felt powerless, and then I remembered reading The Secret and thought it couldn’t hurt to read it again. I remembered it made me feel good when my sister died a few years ago.
After reading it I would visualize every night that I had a great new job, making enough money to move and take my kids to Disneyworld. I did everything the book said: I got clear, and acted and felt like I already had it. It was fun and felt great. I actually felt like things were real without feeling like I was crazy.
One thing led to another and I found myself talking to a friend about not being happy at my job. He said he knew of a company that would be looking for someone like me.
That Thursday, to my shock, I was laid off from my current job. It was a big hit to my family, but I stayed positive and focused all my love on the interview that my friend was able to set up. The interview was a big success and I got the job! Better salary and company. Other great news was that my old job paid me a five month severance that will be more then enough to put a down payment on a bigger house with better schools. And with the bigger salary we will be able to afford Disneyworld. Holy crap does this stuff work! I am a believer for life.
