Stop. Ask. Believe. Breathe. Recieve
I can start off on a very sombre tone as most stories have. But truth is my difficulties or hardships were nothing compared to others. I was a top of the class student without being boastful, I had never worked hard at all my whole life. I was gifted and I knew it. I always got what I wanted: good grades, good friends, good relationships. I wasn’t popular, just lucky. No one ever thought I would be going through this struggle.
So why didn’t I have a job? Why had my perfect life failed me suddenly?
I was an engineer who had graduated from Melbourne University and it had just been a month. So what if I did not have a job. I was smart, bright and an excellent communicator. Of course it was only a matter of time!
But the pressure was unbelievable.
I had a student loan to repay to the bank. My parents, sister, friends, everyone was so worried. But I wasn’t. I was so laid back it was incredible. To this day, I do not understand why. I never got a sense of urgency, just got depressed. And I spiraled downward. I stopped applying for jobs, quit my part time job. My income started drying up.
This is the part where I tell you the miracle that changed my attitude. Well there wasn’t one. At least not one that made me start applying. But tomorrow morning I have an interview. For a full time job exactly matching my interests. Two people have already called me about my job. Friends of mine have forwarded my resume to their contacts and two recruiters called me up. Without me doing anything.
Well, almost anything. I sat one day randomly last week and made a gratitude list.
One day that’s all. I wrote two pages of things I was grateful for and things that I am grateful for that have not yet manifested. Like a job. I wrote what I loved about it. How much it paid me. Everything. Then I promptly forgot to follow it up.
But I do believe that one day changed my life.
It brought me more peace. I stopped worrying about money. I was simply lighter but never connected it to that list.
And now, tomorrow is the day. I will go and nail this interview. I know it, I can feel it in my bones. This is my time. My faith and belief have manifested this job and I am going to get it. It’s everything I wanted, a permanent position related to my field and perfect for me.
I am telling my story not for people who know The Secret but for people who don’t. Or those who know but don’t believe.
This is true. This happened to me. This could happen to you, too. All you need to do is simply stop. Stop for a while to ask the universe; then believe what you want is what you are going to get. Then breathe to reassure yourself and get ready to receive because it’s on it’s way already!
