My story started back in 2008.
I was in a very bad situation and had low self-esteem and the man I thought I was going to marry suddenly cut off all communication without any warning. My career was going nowhere since I didnt have any direction and always relied on “our plan” as my guide when making career decisions. I ended up alienating all my friends and family, not realizing what I was doing…
As a desperate attempt to forget about everything, I relocated to another country, thinking this will help me forget about the heartache and misery I was feeling. Little did I know that it would only get worse. Due to the global economic crisis, I couldn’t get a job in my new location and I was forced to fly back home and move back in with my parents and take on a job that I hated in my home country. I was down on my luck and was miserable every single day.
I was going through all of this till one day I remembered something that I saw on a TV about a book called The Secret. At first I thought, “What the heck? It’s only a book. Whats the worst that could happen?” So I went out and bought the book.
After reading several pages something finally clicked! The book showed me how negative I had been for the past number of years, and that whatever Im going through was all of my own doing. So I had to take action I started by finally letting go of all the anger and hurt I felt for that one person. It was a slow process but I needed to purge everything that was poisoning my thoughts.
I really hated my job at that time and my immediate manager was also making the working environment very hostile so I opted to just quit the job without any other back up plan.
All this time I was thinking about the country that I moved to when I felt so low. I was thinking how it would be nice to try and build a career there for real this time and not to just go there to escape.
A couple of days later, I got an email from a friend who just recently moved there and was inviting me to stay over at her flat free of charge while I looked for work. So I booked a ticket and went Amazing things started happening: I got to meet the most amazing people and have now built a strong network of friends. I was given all these free things and trips that most people only dream about. I found an amazing flat and flatmate to boot!
Im still waiting for my dream job at the moment but I know it’s coming… and IM GETTING THERE… and it all started by just this one book that reminded me to change my mindset. I am writing my story to remind people that The Secret works! All you have to do is believe and receive. It never hurts to smile as well. 🙂
