My jaw hit the floor!
I was given the video as a gift and watched it and loved it. I bought the book and audio cd’s as well and listen to it on my drive to/from work and read the book when I am home and settled in for the night.
My story started a couple weeks ago when I began to worry about filing our personal taxes that I had procrastinated about. It’s nearing the deadline so I thought I should get moving. I contacted our accountant and when we met I turned over all the information to prepare our returns. That was two weeks ago tomorrow. I started to agonize over the possibility of having to pay a large sum again this year. Last year we paid $11,000 for our federal and state returns, this year I was expecting to pay at least $14,000. That is until I decided to apply The Secret. I thought that I wasn’t going to focus on the $14,000 and started to think about being happy, well content with, paying $11,000, the same as last year. Then I thought, “NO! We will only have to pay $7,000.” At first I thought this was very unrealistic until I caught myself and was thankful that this year we would only pay $7,000. Two weeks have gone by since I met with our accountant. I tried calling him for a few days and he finally returned my call yesterday. He told me he prepared our return and we would have to pay. He then proceeded to tell me the amounts we owed: $4,767 to the IRS and $2,776 to the state. He also said that he reviewed the 2005 return and saw that the preparer had made a mistake and we were owed $577 and ammended the return. DO THE MATH! We owe the IRS and State a total of $7,543. I was stunned! I thought, “what a blessing!” and immediately said my thank yous! I was grateful that we would only have to pay a little over the $7,000 I expected. While sitting there in amazement I looked down at my notes and saw the $577 we were due for the 2005 returns and when I subtracted that amount from the $7543 we owed I was further stunned, practically beyond belief, that the total adjusted amount was $6,976! Less than the $7,000! In my excitement I called my husband and told him the news. It was then that he said I should have focused on receiving a refund of $15,000. I told him that I already am as we haven’t completed our business returns yet. Thank you so much for the awareness, the knowledge, and the techniques. From the Bible to The Secret, it is absolutely the truth!
