I Beat The Odds
I want to write my story to inspire anyone who’s about to give up. Please keep your faith. Here it goes:
I have known about LOA since 2009. Like many of you, I followed it religiously at first, but as time went by I ended up forgetting about it until about two weeks ago.
I was employed at a small company where the people were so nice and work was quite fun. But I’ve always wanted to write for a major company in my country. After I decided that I needed to move on, I began looking for writing jobs. And of course, my dream company needs a copywriter. But it was already three weeks since they posted it. It didn’t matter though, I kept my faith and applied to the company anyway. I got nothing to lose. I followed up two times via email, and even snail mail with my CV to make sure they get my resume. A week went by and I heard nothing.
But I didn’t give up. I kept visualizing, I drove by the office building any chance I got because it simply made me happy. I made a vision board, I listened to subliminals on YouTube. I just knew that this job was meant for me. Don’t get me wrong. I had doubts here and there. But every time I did, I quickly disposed the negative thoughts and replaced them with, “The universe got my back.”
A month went by and I still heard nothing. The company even posted the same position on the Internet.
Did I give up?
Heck no. I sent two more of my CV’s. Here’s the thing. I do not have the experience required for the job. They want someone who has 2 years of experience in the field. Me? I only have 3 months experience as an INTERN in that area.
Two days ago, on a Sunday, I was hanging out with old friends from high school. We were talking about our jobs. And I lied to them. I told them that I would have an interview with the dream company next Wednesday. They all gasped. One of my friends applied to the same company and has heard nothing. I felt bad about lying to my best friends, but it just came out.
So today, Tuesday, I was driving to my work when my phone rang.
It was my dream company calling and inviting me for an interview tomorrow, which is Wednesday!!!!!! I held back my tears while still on the phone and just got shivers all over.
I beat the odds here, guys.
IT’S NOT A COINCIDENCE!!!!!!!
If I can do it, you can do it. Just be dedicated, take the actions required , don’t just sit there and wish it would all work out. Then just let the universe do it’s job. Don’t stress yourself with the “hows”.
I also ask for little things to keep my faith intact, here’s how:
I broke up with the love of my life a couple of months back, because of my own insecurities. I was pretty devastated. I wanted to know if we were meant to be back together again. So I asked the universe to give me sign. If I should pursue him, I would read “Love will bring us back” somewhere. If I shouldn’t I would read “Stop hoping.”
Two days later, I got into my car and immediately turned on the radio. I swear to God, the line “Love will bring us back” just popped up in an unknown song. It was repeated eight times in the song. I searched for the song in case I heard it wrong, but I was right!
The timing and how I got my signs were just AMAZING. I am now a firm believer in law of attraction. Tomorrow is my interview, and I know the job is MINE AND MINE ONLY.
So to all of you who are about to give up, DON’T. It works, I promise you, it works. By the way, I’m so sorry if my writing is sloppy and the grammar is out of place. I’m too excited and my hands are shaking hehehe.
THANK YOU RHONDA AND TEAM AND BLESS EVERYONE!!!!!
