Three times a charm!
I was going through a hard time in 2007 when a good friend introduced me to The Secret. I was hooked instantly. Right after I read the book I got the DVD, and a little while later I got the audio book as well!
It was in the summer of 2008 when I decided I was SOMEHOW going to pay off my car by the end of the year! I only work a part-time job as a bookseller, but that didn’t matter to me. All I kept say to everyone was, “I don’t know how I’m gonna pay off my car, but I will and by the end of the year!” At first it seemed like I was going to be able to, but then it was November and I was spending too much of my money on Christmas presents. I started to become doubtful on whether I would be able to do it by the end of 2008! Yet at the same time, I didn’t care, I just kept repeating to myself, “I don’t care! SOMEHOW I will pay off my car payment by the end of the year and that’s it!”
One Saturday morning in December I was driving to work while listening to The Secret audio book for the first time, thinking of ways I could get money to make my wish into a reality! When all of a sudden a thought came into my head out of the blue… I was going to buy a $5 scratch ticket at the gas station by my work! But then I continued that if I won on that ticket, then after work I would go to the gas station by my family and buy another ticket in the amount of whatever I won. If I won $30 or more on that second scratch ticket then I would allow myself to buy a $30 scratch ticket. So that’s what I did. I bought the first scratch ticket by work and won another $5. While I was working I stayed positive all day and had this weird excited feeling going through my body all day! After work, I went to the gas station by my family and said I wanted to get another $5 scratch ticket! I actually WON $30! You never win $30 on a scratch ticket… $25, $40, $50, but I’ve never heard of winning $30. I ran back into the gas station and was kind of in shock because I knew I was going to buy a $30 scratch ticket and that something big was going to happen. So I told the guy who was waiting on me what I had said to myself this morning about the 3 scratch tickets. He thought I was crazy for not taking the $30, but I said, this is a sign, I’m about to win big MONEY! So he said, ok, gave me the ticket, and said he hoped I won $500.
Went out to my car, scratched off the ticket, and won $500. I was in complete shock. I realized after I collected my winnings and was driving home that I had used The Secret!
My payout amount for my car was $661.00 – after the $500 I only had to put in $161!!! The happy ending to THIS story was that I was able to pay off my car by the end of 2008! Now I have my vision board loaded up, and I am looking forward to turning more wishes into a reality!
I feel so indebted to my friend who introduced me to The Secret, and to Rhonda! Thank you for having the faith and knowing that no matter what, you would bring The Secret to the public and share it with the world!
P.S. Now at work, I sell so many more copies of The Secret, and when people come up to check out with me, I always tell them my story! They get even more excited about reading it! Then I tell them about the DVD and audio book and how I was listening to the audio book for the first time the day I won the $500! Then they go buy those, too!!!
