Never Saw It Coming.
I started my “Dream Job” in December of 2012, or so I thought. I ran multiple remote “man camps” on Alaska’s north slope oil fields. After nearly two years, an ethical dilemma presented itself and gave me reason to pause. After much reflection and discussing with my wife, I tendered my resignation in October of 2014. I meandered through the days thinking I would never find such a terrific job again. I acclimated myself to the realization that I should just take whatever comes along and try to be happy with it. All the while I was living life with an attitude of gratitude as best as I could and I tried to keep my outlook positive.
I got a job, not a great job; but the people were nice and I was back in the work force. I kept my eyes open for other positions and let it be known to a few of my contacts that I could be available for the right job. After focusing my thoughts on exactly what I wanted and verbalizing these thoughts on a daily basis, I received multiple job offers doing exactly what I wanted. I am now in a “pick-n-choose” situation and could not be happier. I will make my choice within the next few days and quite honestly any of them would be wonderful. All of this is due to The Secret and allowing myself to realize it is all within me to chart my course and make my life what I want it to be.
