The Power of Visioning and “acting as if”
I have been applying for jobs for 6 months now, and have had little luck in getting an offer. I thought that an M.A. and a solid resume were enough to secure a position, and I became increasingly disappointed with every day. I knew I had the qualifications; but realized that it was my projection and mindset that needed an overhaul. I decided to change my attitude and the energy I was putting out in the world to see if that would make a difference. I kept my antennas open for any positive thinking tools or anything that would boost my morale.
I was introduced to The Secret about 3 days before a big interview (April 2008). I have experienced the power of visioning in my life, and firmly believe that the law of attraction is real. I loved the way the book outlined these concepts and now felt energized to put them forth in my life. But I was new to the idea of “acting as if”, and thought the idea was slightly strange at first. I thought I would put the concept to a test during an upcoming interview.
I went into the 1st phone interview believing I already had the job! I was passionate and enthusiastic about the position and not at all nervous as I had been during previous interviews. I just felt different! I dazzled the recruiter and she made another appointment on the spot for the following day. The next session went even better, and the 2nd recruiter brought me in to meet the hiring manager 2 days later. I was feeling very confident because I was acting as if she were my new boss, and I just believed she would move me further along in the process. I have my final interview tomorrow and KNOW this job is mine; I have already claimed it. I have cleared my desk of old job postings and have already written an announcement to friends and my network about my new job. I have a draft ready in my e-mail for my final severance payout so I can start my new job in 2 weeks!
I completely believe that reading The Secret and implementing the steps has made this process move so quickly. Within 2 weeks I have moved from a depressed job search to a career that is a perfect fit for me. I believe!
