I Was Given Back A Job I Badly Wanted.
After going through a rough year where literally nothing went right and it felt like the universe was against me at all times, I slipped into a depression. I believed that I my entire life would follow the trend of the worst-case scenarios happening to me and only me, at all times in all situations. The final straw for me was having a job that I really wanted taken away from me at the last minute due to insufficient participants in the program. I waited all summer to begin this job, and even planned out lesson plans and fun ideas to do in the class. Immediately after receiving this news I finally decided to read a book that some family members had suggested to me time and time again. This book was The Secret. I went out and bought the book later that day. I am not going to lie and say I believed that it would really work right away. I wanted to believe it, but it seemed too good to be true.
I read the book and learned that I had to tell myself that I already had what I wanted, and visualize myself in that position. I decided to test this on the job that I wanted. For a week straight, I imagined myself opening an email telling me that things have changed and I received the job that I wanted. I would check my email every day and would feel slightly disappointed when the email I wanted was not there. However, I kept reminding myself that the Universe does not work immediately and then resumed imagining myself with the job.
Six days later, I received an email entitled “Position Available”. I opened it and was thrilled to see that I was being offered the job I originally wanted because the program received an influx of new participants!
This was my first experience using The Secret and convinced me that hey, this might actually work. It also made me realize that all of the bad things that have happened to me in the past year, I had attracted to myself because of the way I was thinking about them. I always expected the worst to happen. But now I know that positive thinking and visualization will bring you what you want, even if it does take some time and skepticism along the way.
I hope that my story helps you if you were on the edge about using The Secret, too. Patience and belief are key, and I wish you the best of luck in your journeys using The Secret.
