Test Drive… WOW!
I was first introduced to the book in late 2007 by an old friend of mine. I went out and bought the book and read through it, but never finished reading the entire thing. It was quite invigorating and inspirational, however I allowed my daily life to rule. I had applied what I read for the most part, but not full on.
Well, after some time passed, about 3 or 4 months, I was looking through auto sales books. I wanted a newer car and thought that if I looked for one I could inspire myself to do what I need to get one. I was driving a pretty decent car at the time, a 2001 Expedition. While a very nice truck, it was horrible on gas. I looked through the auto magazine and saw this Mercedes. It jumped out at me. So I would always look at it and see myself in it, driving it, pulling in my driveway in it. I was determined to make the changes in life where I would be able to afford it.
One evening, around 6 or 7, I decided to go and look at it physically. Figuring no-one would be there, I though I could just walk around it, touch it, and stare through the windows. I pulled into this small car dealership, where “my” car was. As I got out to look at it a salesman walked up to me out of nowhere. He asked a few questions and then offered me to take it for a “demo drive.” I agreed, and he went and retrieved the keys for me. I was thinking there is no way I could even imagine buying this car; my credit was horrible, I had no money for a down payment, my job wasn’t paying me much. Basically I saw no way of getting this car. When he handed me the keys I sat inside it and drove it to my house to show my family. They were like, “Where did you get this from?” I took my Mom for a test drive and picked up my daughter from her friend’s house. We were all so excited. Well, by this time I had the car for like an hour and decided to take it back.
To make a long story short, my desire, wanting and, now belief that I could have this car all came to be. In March I became the owner of my Mercedes CLK 320! No money down! One of the parts of the book I remembered reading and doing was to look at your hands and picture them wrapping around the steering wheel of the car you want, and really feel it. I had done that every time I looked at that car in the magazine. And now I don’t have to imagine it anymore.
I recently began reading and watching “The Secret.” Really focusing on all the knowledge there and applying it. I’ve seen many changes in the past month already. Things have really been going my way, and now I have set greater goals, and I feel as if I already have them – they are on their way into my life. This has been a life changing experience for me, and I wish to add for anyone who may be wavering: continue to believe, trust, and live within the Secret! It works! Change your life by simply commanding it and living it how you want to. It’s your choice and all the power is within you… so do it!
