Over 60 And Just Re-firing!
Well, what can I say? Despite over 30 years of study, I still didnt get it — until I saw and read The Secret.
Yes, Id studied Law of Attraction ideas for over 30 years. And I thought I pretty much knew it all, intellectually. I could make it work, sometimes. But mostly I was still just getting by and stressed. Frustrating — I was supposed to know this stuff. Why wasnt it working?
I heard about The Secret soon after it came out. At first I thought, whatever, another one of those get-prosperity things that Id studied for literally decades. And couldnt make it work. But I got the DVD and book anyway — an inner prompting I guess. Well, let me just say. This time I got it.
It was explained in such a way that I found out what Id been missing. Just in the nick of time my job had turned into a horror show, including me finding major errors and legal infractions that I had to report. You can imagine how that went over. It took all the new guts and stamina and faith I had in myself. Soon after that, I was laid off, right in the midst of the hard economic times. I was over 60 years old, so this was no picnic. I never thought it would happen to me, as they say. But it was great.
Now I knew what Id been missing before. First, the biggest revelation was – you get what you put your attention on including what you dont want. Which is easy to do if youre right in the midst of it. Wow. That was a real eye opener and no small thing. The huge challenge is, of course, keeping our attention on what we want, despite the outer appearances going on all around us. It takes focus, its very hard. And it works.
Second, you also have to really believe you can have and deserve what you want. Third, expect it. Expecting was a missing link for me, but really ramps it up. Why want something you dont expect? Talk about frustrating oneself. And then, of course, youve got to take action steps as they come along. So I focused on: Attention, Believing, and Expecting no matter what. And it turned my life around. In my 60s. (I finally got past the Oh, if Id only known all this when I was younger ) So Im now re-creating my life using my experience and interests. I intend to Re-fire not Retire. Ive created a special business and web site where I can share what I love with others. And Im bursting with tons of ideas. This is just the beginning.
