The Entrepreneur Who Never Quit.
Who would have ever thought that the law of attraction really would change my life like this.
I sometimes pinch myself at the thought of going from filing bankruptcy at the age of 25, to landing a call center job making just $10/hr and then finally uncovering my breakthrough that allowed me to gross very close to 6 figures in just 12 months outside of my job.
Now I wake up to several messages a day from people all over the world asking me how I did it. The truth is though that the road was not easy. I remember being introduced to the movie The Secret back in 2008 and I thought my life was going to change instantly. Weirdly enough, I watched it and just kind of went about my business.
That year things took a very hard spin for me. I was running a business with a partner of mine and what had started off as a great shop in the mall turned into what was keeping me a slave and not feeding me at all. I’d always had the dream of being an entrepreneur and owning a business that kept me feeling free, but things got so out of control that I ended up several thousands of dollars in debt.
Eventually couldn’t take it anymore and filed bankruptcy as a 25 year old kid. This hurt. It was the lowest of the low for me and for 13 months I walked around with my head down feeling very uninspired and unmotivated to chase my dreams. During those 13 months I ended up landing a call center job making just $10/hr as a college graduate.
Then one day inside the break room at the call center a girl said something that woke me up. She was about 18 years old and had a loud squeaky voice and she said: “I can’t wait to get paid this Friday so I can put a down payment on my apartment and move out of my mama’s house”.
At that moment I realized that she had something I needed. She had something that I used to have and I wanted it back.
It was excitement!
I decided I’d been down long enough. That night I went home and found my DVD of The Secret. I started watching The Secret every morning and I watched it for literally 30 Days straight. For the first week I literally watched it all the way through. Then I simply would put it on and let it play as a part of my background while I did things around the house.
I started to envision the life that I wanted and how I wanted to be in business again.
I even took the advice of Jack Canfield and created a $100,000 bill. It’s still on my wall today, in a new house of course.
After this, I had an idea to get back into business and I did. I ended up grossing very close to 6 figures within the next 12 months.
I attribute a huge part of that success to focusing on what I wanted. I knew I wanted to feel good every day. I wanted to experience progress on a daily basis.
I wanted to provide value to others so they were happy to do business with me. So yes, I agree, what we focus on we will attract.
I am a living testimony that the law of attraction really can work for us.
So I say, yes I agree. Focus on what you want and it will come if you take action towards it.
