Getting My Copy Of ‘The Greatest Secret’, As I Had Intended.
A while back I was busy going through photos on Bookstagram and I saw that Rhonda Byrne was publishing another book. It really caught my attention. I went on Amazon and it was to be released on November 24th. For once I wanted to pre-order a book and the fact it was Rhonda Bryne’s book made it really special.
I didn’t have the cash to pre-order it but I made it my intention to have the book. I downloaded a picture of the book and visualized how that book would feel in my hands. Then I let it go.
A month later, one of my bookish friends was doing an Amazon e-card giveaway worth $25. I entered and didn’t think much about it given that I don’t win much. And even if I did win, I would still be about $13 dollars short.
That same week, an author approached me to read and review his new book and asked if would I accept an ebook gift of it. I said yes, but when I went to download the book on my Kindle, it was not possible because the author and I don’t live in the same country. Told the author and instead, he sent the book via email. I also got an Instagram story notification that I had won that $25 giveaway. I was so blown away, especially given that I almost missed that story mention!
A week later the same author asked for my address to send me a physical copy of the book and I was so thrilled. In the process, I learned that one can redeem a book that they don’t have access to, like in my situation, for an ecard amount. I did just that and the book was valued at $13. The exact amount of money that I needed to pre-order The Greatest Secret!! So I did it right away! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Here is to creating the lives of our dreams.
