The Secret brought hope back into my life.
When I found The Secret I was trying to muster up the strength to get out of my emotionally abusive marriage. At the time I was working as a civilian for Operation Iraqi Freedom. One day a friend gave me her iPhone and allowed me to watch The Secret. The very next day a co-worker had the book The Secret sitting on his desk and he offered to lend it to me. I decided as my first effort to change my life using The Secret to intend a true supportive love.
As time went by I came to the realization and the acceptance that my marriage was not that true supportive love that I longed for. From out of nowhere I became stronger and I ended my marriage. Shortly thereafter a very good friend of mine professed his love for me. We began a love that has turned into the most fulfilling supportive and caring relationship I have ever had in my life. We are now engaged.
The next task was to get my career back on track. Unfortunately I allowed my ex-husband to manipulate me into squandering my career. Because I never stayed focused on my career it was proving to be difficult to get the job I wanted and needed to put my career where I wanted it to be. So I took the time everyday to be “grateful that I had the job I wanted.” Then one day my best friend’s mother-in-law, who I had only met once at that point, contacted me to offer me an opportunity to interview for the very dream job I have been longing for.
The day after the 1st interview I went out and began buying a professional wardrobe. Though my family felt it was premature of me to do so, I stayed focused on my feeling of gratitude. It became a bit difficult to stay focused when I have to take a job I didn’t want so that I was financially secure until the job I wanted came through. There were many obstacles along the way. The manager, and 2 regional managers initially didn’t want to hire me because of my inexperience. But I stayed persistent. And never allowed my name to be forgotten.
I eventually won everyone over; including the VP. And now I start that dream job in 11 days. Thanks to The Secret!
