I’m fairly new to The Secret but I see how it works. First let me start by telling how I came to know The Secret. One day I was just getting off work (at a job I absolutely hate) and I had just got into an argument with my kids dad (who is in jail) and it was literally raining in my crappy apartment. I kept asking myself how can I make things run smoothly? There’s got to be some way I can change all of the negative things going on in my life.
Later that day I went to Barnes and Nobles to grab my kids dad some magazines, and the movie The Secret jumped out at me on a rack of stationaries and I grabbed it without even thinking about it. When I got home I watched it 3 times back to back taking notes mapping out how I was going to make this work for me. I started out small, I pictured my apartment as it would look if it were not leaking from every wall or with pots, pans, bowls on every square foot of the floor. 8 days later it stopped.
At the job I was working I had to use my own car a lot. I was on empty one night and I pictured getting into my car and the gas gauge full. Well, when I got off work at 7am the next morning the person who I usually give a ride home to (who had already given me what he usually gives me for gas money for the week) filled my tank up for me without me having to ask.
I pictured myself at a job where I can work any time, that I would enjoy. Three days later the census bureau called me back saying I had been selected as an enumerator in my area (a job which I had applied and interviewed for over a year ago) making $25 an hour plus .50 mileage, working no less the 30 hours a week at the times and days I see fit. (Although it’s only temporary it’s still better compared to $11 an hour, no mileage and working 11pm to 7am with two small kids under 3, and no one to help me when I got home).
It took me a while to see that I MADE THIS HAPPEN but I see now and now it’s time to go BIG. Next, I’ll be making $10,000 a month off the internet from home with my two kids! (Shooting for the end of this summer!)
