In 2016, I was going to sign up and join the United States Navy. I knew during the recruiting process that being in the service was not where my heart lied. I am a very gentle, sensitive person who opposes brutality of any kind. However, being only 20 at the time, I felt societal pressure to “do something with my life and make a difference”. I was joking around on the internet and I filled out a Navy application. Everything after that happened so fast, and I had no time to back out of the decision I had made.
Needless to say, I made a minor mistake at MEPS and it ended my chances of being in any branch of the military. While most of my friends and family members viewed me as a failure or losing the opportunity to see the world, have a job with great benefits, and getting a free education, I viewed the situation as a learning experience and a life lesson. I never allowed anyone’s negativity to influence the fact that I took a major career loss. Instead, I began to read The Secret and I visualized myself at a job that I loved, felt safe at, and that could lead to future opportunities.
Well today, I have two jobs. I arrive thirty minutes early to both jobs and wake up every morning excited to see my coworkers and customers. I recently got a raise at both jobs, and made assistant manager at one of the jobs. I could not be happier!!!! Did I mention that I have only been at the one job for two months? God is good!
I would like to thank Rhonda for sharing The Secret. I will continue to use The Secret to attract greatness into my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
