Messenger Of God, The Secret.
The title for my story is ‘Messenger From God, The Secret’ because I genuinely believe that God sent an angel for me and introduced me to The Secret, which I feel is his messenger. A friend of mine had introduced me to the book 7 years back and since then it has really changed my life.
I have so many stories but today I have chosen one particular story. I was a crime reporter for a national daily newspaper in the city. It was always my dream to cover crime and the investigative beat. I think it was because ever since I was a kid, I wanted to become a secret agent working for a spy intelligence agency. So, I attracted a job with this paper and worked as a crime reporter.
I was very happy and thrilled with this job. Everything was perfect for the first three months and I had very helpful seniors who guided me on how to work in the field and report.
After three months, the paper hired a city editor. He was a dreadful person who harassed every single employee including me. He was a male chauvinist and often targeted female employees. Finally, after 6 months I resigned, as I could not work in such a negative environment. Along with me, many others resigned too.
Now I was gone from my dream job and was hunting for another job. I did not feel bad, even for one second, because I had faith in The Secret. I felt the Universe must have wanted me to take a break and relax to give me a better opportunity.
For three months I was applying at various places but I did not really feel the desire to work in any of these places and I was still very keen on sticking to my crime and investigative beat. Then, one day, I suddenly had an inspiration and asked the Universe about getting a job where I would be the researcher of a crime TV show!
And believe it or not, just a day later, I received an email from a production house. They were interested in my CV and wanted to interview me for the role of a researcher for their crime show!!!!
I went for the interview and my gut and intuition told me that this job was custom made for me by God! I attended the interview with this faith and bang! I got the job!
I worked there for 10 months, which is the best career experience of my life! I took a huge jump from a crime reporter to a researcher! I was the sole researcher of the show and covered two seasons of it, from pre-production to the end of the show! My pay package was double my old job, my bosses, colleagues, my seniors, all of them were such wonderful human beings! I am still in touch with all of them!
I had made a vision book in which I had written everything in detail about what I wanted in my job, and my wishes were fulfilled!
I am now working on a movie script under a director, and he too is such a wonderful boss. He motivates, encourages and inspires me and I love my work!
One bad boss, one naysayer, gave me only good opportunities in return, but only because I kept my faith.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
