The Job of my Dreams…
I have been unemployed since May 2012. One day one of my MBA teachers make me read THE SECRET because he said he saw something special in me, so I bought it.
When I started to read, I felt lonely and I felt scared because I couldn’t find a job, and I was also having a really bad time in my relationship (my boyfriend was cheating on me), so I started to do exactly all the exercises that the book recommended. I made a list of what I want, including MY PERFECT JOB IN THE SALES DEPARTMENT AT THE PRESIDENT INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL. I made another list of what I’m grateful for, and also made a story of my perfect life, including my relationship.
So every morning since 3 weeks ago I wake up, and when I do I start to say thank you for every special thing that comes to my mind or for every special moment that I lived in the past, and I start to remember how I felt in that moment of happiness. After that I take 5 minutes to read the 2 lists I made, and I try to feel the happiness as if the things in my papers were true.
Every night I go to sleep saying, “Thank you for the job at the hotel,” and started to imagine how I would feel working there. Also, I imagine me walking in the hotel and wearing a uniform, and saying hi to my partners.
Yesterday I was driving when I received a call from the human resources department asking me if I was available for working there. In that moment without thinking I just said, “THANK YOU, THANK YOU SO MUCH!”
You should know that I sent my CV 2 months ago, and I was sure that I never could work there.
