The Magical Month.
Thank you for your wonderful books. I was lucky enough to find them at a very crucial time of my life. Today I’m a totally different person with a positive outlook as a result. I’ve been trying to practice the teachings for a year but with a little luck. So I reread both The Secret and The Power and gained a better understanding. At the same time I read several other inspirational books as well. So this year I reaped what I sowed. I hope this story of mine will inspire many of you as I was inspired by the stories posted here.
When I first saw the news of the release of Rhonda’s new book, The Magic, it occurred to me that March must really be magical for me. I got a piece of paper and wrote down “March is a Magical Month” and put it on my vision board at the very moment. Not only that, I told my husband that we’d have 12 sales as a result. Though he didn’t utter a word, he must have thought that I was at my wits end due to no sales for nearly two months. But I was sure that we were going to make it this time.
Let me just give you an idea about the condition of the business my husband managed at the time. He started it here in the Philippines in Oct 2009 and put up a sale on his own in April 2010 amidst a lot of difficulties. Up to this in March, he hadn’t had any success with all his dedication and efforts. In some months he had one or two sales, but in some others, there were no sales at all. The business was solely run on his efforts and the trust of his boss. I was in a dilemma not knowing what to do. I understood that I could not go on like this, but I could not desert my husband at the same time. At this juncture of my life, I found The Secret which actually saved my life and my family.
Coming back to my story again; So I wrote that I was giving thanks for our 12 sales and the worthy customers delivered by the mighty Universe> I wrote it every day in my gratitude journal. I also planned the things I’d do with the money my husband would give me. Every day I talked to my husband about the sales that we’d have. Also I put up notices thanking for our 12 sales in different places of my house. Gradually my husband also got to believe that he’d have many sales. Certain desirable changes took place at the business at the same time. Suddenly my husband was making sales like never before. We were happy and excited. Most of the time I was quite happy and enjoyed the new found success.
At the end of the month, my husband sold 8 vehicles and 1 was advanced. If not for the negativity that crept in at certain moments and made me distracted from what I was practicing, I’m sure we’d have done all 12 sales. But I now I knew that nothing is impossible and as a family, we had a bright future waiting for us. Throughout the month my motto was,”Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step.” Accordingly I kept my faith without letting doubt overpower me. Now I’ve become a grateful person and learned to see the good side of everyone and everything like never before. We have peace at home. My kids are disciplined and lovable as a result. The inner peace I found is priceless. I’m very much indebted to you dear Rhonda, not only for the success of the business, but also for the love, gratitude and kindness I’m capable of feeling within myself. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
