Keep visualizing and believing!
Last year I was going through a very tough time at work due to extreme hostile working conditions. I needed to quit and even fantasized about a new job in a friendly environment, going to work happy, remaining happy at the workplace, and coming home happy as well.
Given my deep desire of getting out of that place as soon as I could, I ended up being laid off. It did not surprise me at all. I understood that the Universe was giving me what I desperately needed.
Instead of being concerned and worried sick about my unemployment (I am the only breadwinner of a family of 4), I began devouring not only The Secret but also books from Napoleon Hill and Bob Proctor that encouraged me to remain positive and energetic.
Of course it has not been easy! I have been unemployed for six months! In the meantime, I started to visualize myself in a new job and see myself happy while working for a new employer.
I had my own dreams board where I hung phrases and positive messages from The Secret. I needed to see them every day when I sat in my desk to look for a new job.
One day I applied for my dream job, but the only inconvenience was that it was located overseas. However, it did not stop me at all. When they made me an offer, I almost died when I had to decline it (don’t forget that I was unemployed), because leaving the US was not an option for me or my family. Instead of being sorry for myself and for my work circumstances, I asked about the possibility to take on that job in another state where the company had an affiliate. It seemed impossible, but I not only asked for it, I also started visualizing myself in this company and even living in the new location.
To my big surprise, I got an email one month later, to let me know that they liked my idea and that they would make me an offer for that position because upper management had agreed that a US-based position would be even more convenient.
During that waiting time, I kept visualizing myself in the new job and I even sent myself an email telling me that the position location would be moved, just for me!
At this time, I am working in the new company. It has not been easy to stay positive during the past six months, but during the times that doubt or sadness came into me, I started repeating all the teachings from the books until I could feel happy and energetic again. If you need to talk to somebody to raise you up, just do it! Sometimes some words from my wife were enough to make me feel good again. Find your own way.
My advice to all is: think big and positive. Dont let negative thoughts impress you. Switch moods. You will find the way as I did. Everything is doable. You will get tired, exhausted of so much reality denying, but believe me, it is worth it. I focused on the God inside me and worked on my faith. I need to tell you this: if you have faith, everything can be done, although it may seem impossible.
Thanks Rhonda so much,
