How I Flipped An Adverse 2020.
I read The Secret in 2010. Like so many others who have read this book, I was able to change my thought process and achieve many dreams and goals. In 2010 after reading the book, I was able to manifest my dream of migrating to Australia. I was also able to get a job here, marry, settle down, and achieve loads of other dreams.
But after all I am human, and sometimes I forget to be grateful. I got back to my old ways of life, whining and complaining about anything and everything. Thanks to all my negative thoughts, 2019 was a very challenging year for me. Then came 2020, which has been challenging for almost everyone in the world, I guess.
I had been dreaming of buying a house for many years and it was not happening. I had been working at a casual job for 7 years. It was a great multi-national company to work for, listed in the Forbes 500. However, they don’t hire staff as permanent employees and banks don’t like to lend money to casual employees. So I was stuck . I loved this job so I did not want to quit but my dream of buying a house was not happening. 2020 was the last year I could buy a house on a loan because I am 37. We have a 30 year loan term here in Australia and the retirement age is 67.
I had been trying hard to manifest a permanent position at this company that I had been working for the last 7 years as a casual employee. However, the Universe had other plans for me. As you all know, COVID 19 struck. The city I live in went into a 100 day hard lockdown. And because I was a casual employee, the company I worked for decided to reduce my shifts. Ironically, the company was doing better in its business and was making a record profit due to COVID 19. I loved this job but this unethical behavior by the company prompted me to look around for another job.
I found this amazing job and gave a Skype interview. They said they would get back to me and kept me waiting. Meanwhile at my current job, after 7 long years, they decided to give me a new role. It was kind of a promotion, the one I had been dreaming about. But there was no salary hike and no permanent position, just extra responsibility. Even though it was great a job, it would not get me my dream home. Anyway, I did not have much of a choice so I took the new position.
Then 2 weeks into the new position, I heard back from the company I had given an interview for. I got the new job! It had a better salary and it was a permanent position with a government agency! If it was not for me losing my shift due to Covid, I would have never applied for this new job.
Four months into my new job I collected the keys to my dream home! This has been a roller coaster year for me. Thank you, Universe!! I know 2020 is a hard year for many of us but be positive and keep dreaming. The Universe will connect the dots.
