If you truly believe you can make miracles
I bought The Secret book about 1 year ago, and read it through and watched the DVD. I was amazed by everything inside, but I do not know why, I did not put too much attention on it on that day.
I have a very stressful job, but I love my job. It needs a lot of financing from my side, and I had a time where I needed much more money to grow. But I did not have a single idea of how to get it as it was too much…
I remembered how I achieved everything that I wanted in life before, during a vacation away from the hustle of the city. When I was a young I wanted to be a marketing manager at a cosmetic company, so I role-played in front of the mirror almost every day pretending to be one. At that time when I did not know what these cosmetic companies were at all. But I pretended that I was a marketing manager. In front of the mirror I was role-playing, going out to business dinners, discussing business, and making meetings. I was even dressing up for the occasion sometimes.
It felt so good. I knew I was going to be a cosmetic MM one day…
Before I graduated from the university I saw an add of LOreal on the newspaper. They were looking for a product manager. Nice to start with But I had one term to finish summer in order to graduate, so my mother told me I have no chance – that I should not even apply but think of finishing my school. But she did not know that I had finished my school already in my vision, so I had no doubts. I sent my CV to LOreal but did not tell my family.
After 3 interviews I was accepted. I became a brand manager after 8 months and stayed there 3 years until I got a very nice offer from another cosmetic company and moved in there and worked as a marketing manager.
After some time the business was so stressful, and I had a new expat manager who was very good with me at first, and then had an affair with one of my assistants and decided to lay me off in order to make her the MM. When he told me I was shocked as I was very much loved in the company, but I did not take it badly. I focused my attention that I am going to get a better job with much better earnings, so that I will be happy with whatever happened.
In one week I got a call from a company that had made me a very good offer about 4 months previously. I had not accepted the offer then, but now it came again with a higher salary. I accepted it and started over.
A few years later I opened my own company and earned a lot of money. More that I could imagine. I bought a house worth 1.5 million USD, a 600 m2 office floor on a plaza, and a 25 hectare country plantation. That was beyond my expectation.
After some time I got a little depressed, and forgot to say thank you for everything that I had. I went into turmoil with constant worry… what would happen if I cannot work? And who will afford to give me this life if something goes wrong with the business?
So guess what happened. Your wish is my command!!! I got many troubles in the business.
Fortunately my husband is a person who applies the Secret much better than I do. He told me not to worry and leave the things to its flow, and said nature will find a way to solve it and everything will be much better.
I started to get orders, but I did not have the finance to finance them. But my biggest supplier told me that we can work on credit terms, so I needed no money to finance the orders at first. That was good news. Then the government put big taxes over on the items that I import for my customers, so it may have been the end of this business, but I did not care. I said, it will be all right, they will buy anyway. And they went on ordering like nothing has happened. All the things that I feared turned out to be things in my favor. It was magical.
The only thing you need to overcome to make your dreams come true is your beliefs, fears, and limits. I hope I will come back with more accomplishments that will inspire you.
