Myself and my wife were going through a rough patch, and I went back home to South Africa for a three week holiday. While I was there she decided to have an affair with another man… I was totally broken inside and almost had a nervous breakdown, relying on anti-depressants and sleeping tablets to cope. I came back earlier than expected and she still lied to me about it. Then her lover phoned me up and asked me to meet him… he told me everything to my face and I was so surprised at myself for not doing anything stupid. She refused to lose contact with this guy, and they still emailed and so forth, so I decided to leave.
All of a sudden an old friend contacted me. She was in England, and within three days I was on my way to her, no money, no job, not knowing what was going to happen to me… I just believed that something was going to happen and kept replaying it in my head.
I arrived on the Sunday and started looking for a job. No one replied for about an hour, then an ex boss put a job offer on the internet and within 2 minutes of him placing the opportunity I called him and got a job for myself and my friend (who has been unemployed for three months as well). He offered me live-in accommodation, and I could not believe how quick it was that I got this job, literally one hour. From having nothing.
I didn’t have any money to get to where I was supposed to be, as I was due to start in a week. I called a friend up who lives about two hours away, and he was heading in the same direction on the weekend. So that sorted my travel expenses.
I had no money and could not pay my debts, so went to my bank to explain and they gave me 200 pounds.
So I now have a lift to my new employment, a place to live in, enough money to pay my debts, and enough money to buy food for a month until I get paid!!!!!
I was a bit skeptical at first, but I tried as hard as I could to be grateful and know that good things were gonna come to me, and I could not believe the results. From total despair to having all these opportunities thrown at me… Unbelievable.
I now read at least a few pages of The Secret every day, and it inspires me to be happy and grateful for what I have. Thank you for bringing this book into the world, I honestly don’t know where I would have been if I had never read it…
