That Was Impossible!
I’ve always been a bit skeptical about the whole “The Secret” thing, but one day I decided to give it a try. I hadn’t gotten a raise at my job for many years and decided to ask for one. I know my boss is extremely cheap and it usually takes a lot to convince him for a penny. I thought, if The Secret works as they say it does, why not ask for something big? Hey, how about something impossible?
So I did not just ask for a raise. With trembling legs, I asked for a big raise and I also asked to get it regularly every year from then on.
I was told to wait until a decision was made. I waited almost a week but didn’t waste my time. As often as I remembered, I envisioned my joy when I heard yes, and could almost hear the opening of a bottle of champagne! I really was trying to believe and I think I succeeded! I realized though that I might first be asked for long and difficult negotiations and I also was trying to get ready for them. But I also quietly hoped this time it wouldn’t happen.
Then, one morning, out of blue, my boss shows up and says; I thought it over and I agree to your terms.
I was speechless, but actually not surprised as I really did believe. I was speechless out of happiness! I am a strong believer ever since! The Secret works!
