How One Movie Can Make A Difference
It all started mid June 2010. I can still remember the moment I first got acquainted with The Secret. I was at my friend’s house complaining about work and things related.
In April 2010 I started working for a direct sales company. The product was amazing, the team I worked with was great and I’ve made some new friends. I started working as a door-to-door sales agent but being a door-to-door saleswoman wasn’t my dream job. I had my eye on another position.
As in every new job, first I had a job interview, got accepted and was invited to a seminar, where I was acquainted with the product I would sell and the payment system. The girl running the seminar was about my age, and as I was listening to her, I decided some day soon I will be running seminars, job interviews and teaching new agents about direct sales in this company. That was my goal.
At the beginning my sales were very low. I was working hard, the clients were excited about the product and my presentation was good. But something was missing. I was desperate. I wanted to get promoted so bad, that I was unknowingly blocking myself from making the sales. It felt as if my goal was unreachable.
There I was at my friend’s house being all negative, when she said: “Have you ever seen The Secret?” I remembered she had mentioned it before and I was curious, what is this “big secret”?
I can’t describe the feeling that came over me as we were watching. As if all the hope and belief in myself came back to me. From that moment I was more decisive as I ever was in my life. I’m getting that promotion!
That story with the vision board had inspired me the most, so when I came home that day I took a piece of paper and on it I wrote the word PROMOTION, and next to it August 31st 2010. I taped it on a wall in my room so I could see it every day.
All of a sudden there was no doubt in my mind. I knew I was going to achieve my goal. My sales were going very well, I was calm and I believed.
So the day came. August 31st, 2010. It started as a normal day, we had our morning meeting and when it was over my boss said to me: “let’s go grab some coffee. Bring your notebook, I’ll explain to you how to run a seminar.” There they were, the magic words.
After a short four months I got my first promotion and it is all thanks to The Secret. After three years I still work for the same company, only now I am one of the bosses.
Without The Secret I don’t know where my life would be right now. I always say that everything happens for a reason and now I know I attracted The Secret into my life at the moment I needed it the most.
For that I am very grateful.
