The Damsel in the Attic
As a single mommy I was at my whits end and ready to pull my hair out over money problems. It got so bad that we were almost evicted from our little apartment several times, and my car nearly got repossessed. I was at rock bottom. I had fallen into a black hole of depression because I felt like there was no way out of the circumstances that I had created. I had this little blog that I started but no matter how much I struggled, I couldn’t seem to turn it into a business. Money always seemed to stand in the way of the next step.
Then one night I was lying in bed, and pulled The Power out to read. I read the section about money and business and realized that Rhonda Byrne had gone through the same thing! She wanted to finish the film The Secret but didn’t have the money to do it! She said that she knew she had to feel good about money to bring it to her! Well, I didn’t go to the bank like she did and give away money. Instead, I decided right then and there that $25,000.00 was on its way. I told myself this over and over, believing it, being thankful for it, and feeling good about it. I did this all night while visualizing and writing down what wonderful things the money would buy. I imagined publishing my website, buying the purses for my handmade online store, investing in an expensive camera for blog and product pictures, paying for sponsors that would generate major traffic for my site. Most of all, I could see myself paying all of my rent and bills.
The next day, I awoke and got online and discovered that exactly $25,000 was in my bank account that literally came from unexpected sources that I hadn’t even thought of like, back child support. It was literally a dream come true! I cried I was so relieved! Now to date, my website is not only completed and up and running, but I’m selling handmade clothing and accessories like hotcakes and my online e-book has won awards. My blog is huge too, I get thousands of hits per day on my site! I’m doing what I love and I am literally making $25,000 a month now!
On an even lighter note, there was one more thing that I wanted a husband to share the rest of my life with. Well, within a few weeks, I literally ran into a man that was buying a bunch of books and a month later he asked me to marry him! We’re getting married this fall.
Since reading The Power, I’ve literally managed to go from a life of poverty to one where I’m living my dream every day in my career and with the perfect man for me.
