Opportunity found me when I was losing hope
Although I was excited about The Secret when I first watched it, it took me a while to realize that it has been working for me throughout my life. My friends always said I was “charmed” because I follow my bliss, work like a dog at what I love, and opportunities seem to blossom in my path. But I was at a point in my life where I was afraid my good fortune had run out.
I have been stuck in a 9-to-5 job with minimal pay for the past couple years. And while I am thankful to be able to work and support myself, it is difficult to keep my spirits up, and I don’t see how I could begin to support a family, which is something I’ve dreamed of. Two days ago I watched The Secret again and I decided to put into motion good feelings about paying off my credit cards and having a nice balance in my savings account; having more flexibility in my work schedule, and getting paid what I’m worth. As fervently as I wanted this and thought it was possible, I was still feeling depressed tonight. Little did I know that the Universe was already aligning itself to help me through.
Tonight my grandmother appeared with a proposal for a project that she thinks will get funding from a big philanthropic organization. It’s a brilliant idea, one that we had discussed a month ago and I had completely forgotten about. The grant would pay me more than DOUBLE what I earn now, and I would be doing rewarding work that will benefit my community. I would have a flexible schedule, and of course I get to work with my grandmother. I will find out tomorrow if it’s going to be funded, but I already know that things are moving in the right direction. I’ll tell you, it’s impossible to predict HOW it’s going to happen, but if you work with enthusiasm towards your goals even when you have the normal ups and downs of life forces are at work to meet you half way on your journey. It’s a great feeling and IT WORKS!
I hope this inspires someone out there to keep your chin up, dream big, have the courage to really ask for what you want and need, and believe the idea is already growing all around you, waiting for the right moment to reveal itself. Even though I had a tough two years, the actual time from committing myself to this idea to getting a result took only 3 DAYS. When the time is right, and your feelings are aligned with your dreams, it can happen fast.
