My Life Given Back To Me.
Dear Rhonda & Secret Team
In 2007 I found myself working in a job that I could not stand, I had been lied to about the role and what it involved etc, I was treated very badly, and used and abused constantly. In fact I was working 17-20 hours a day (honestly), which then put huge pressure on home life, as my wife had to do everything and our daughter was very young at the time. It came to the point where I could not sleep at night, and every morning when the alarm went off my stomach turned. All I could think about was how much I hated this. I hate this! I hate this!, on and on I would tell myself, and when I complained to my boss, I was denied the bonus’ I had earned and I was threatened with being fired.
Rhonda, it was the lowest point of my life. I come from an engineering/sales & marketing background, and in 2006 I read a sales book. In it were some very interesting stories and case studies, the main industry focus of the role-play within the book was on the software and technology sectors, this got me really excited; “this type of sales job is perfect for me”. While I was reading the book I was in a different place, I felt good about myself, not worthless. I was eventually laid-off. The downturn in the economy hit and my sales manager fired me to save himself. But after reading this book over and over, I realised the problem was with my employers; their way of looking at the world was perverse and twisted, I knew I was better than that. To live like this is not why I am here on this world.
I found more work and worked as hard as I could to provide for my family, then one day I got a call from an agency who had just received a senior sales role for a software company. At first I balked at it, saying They want a software engineer. I don’t want to waste your time, or theirs, but thanks for thinking of me. The girl in the agency insisted, I think you are the man for this role! So I agreed and went for a series of interviews. I got the job, a huge increase in pay and bonus’, and I drive a 5 series BMW!!!
But the recent few years had left their scars, and I was very depressed sometimes, worried that I was going to somehow wake up one morning at it would all be taken away. It was Christmas now, and I was shopping for gifts with my wife, who was also in the same negative place as I was. Everything I had been through, she had been through with me, and we kept each other sane. I went into a bookshop I was looking for something to give me new perspective on life, to heal us. I didn’t know what this would be. I had un-knowingly been visualising my perfect life over the previous months, and attracting the tools, people and opportunities to achieve this. I looked up at one of the rows of books in a shop I had never been in before. I saw a cool looking red book that caught my eye; red has always been my favourite colour. I picked it up then put it back quickly, I felt strange; something had just happened. I had arrived somewhere new and I felt fear. I turned and started to walk away, then my body stopped and I was routed to the floor. I was honestly sweating like I had finished a workout. My inner voice said in a commanding voice “Brian my friend, if you turn your back on this chance to save yourself now, you will be lost in an abyss forever”. I am not crazy, I heard this so clearly, I actually said “Okay” out loud. I turned around and grabbed my copy of “The Secret”, paid for it, an held it tight to my chest like a life line (which it was!). My wife and I have been reading The Secret every day since that day, and we have been watching the movie and further studying the law of attraction and all the teachers in the movie and back through history.
Two weeks ago I was having shower after my workout, when something suddenly dawned on me out of nowhere about my new job, and I was blown away by what I had realised. I grabbed a towel first, then ran out of the shower dripping wet, searching frantically for my copy of the sales book I had read. One of the case studies, which I had read again and again, and been very impressed by, was actually about one of the sister companies in our group! But the really scary bit was, that in the role-play parts of the book, the sales person whom I dreamed of being, was selling the products I am now selling! I started to cry with the realisation of what I had done, my wife came in from the other room, and got a fright. I showed her the book, and she instantly understood, and we hugged. We knew the universe had brought us our new life, because we had invoked the power of the great law of attraction. Now that I understand a little more how the law works, I am creating things bigger and better, and can already see & feel them coming to me at light speed.
Rhonda, I owe you a personal debt of gratitude. Thank You for making the movie & publishing the book. May the Joy be with you, too,
All my love and thanks.
