Two Stubborn Hearts And A loving Universe.
Here’s this huge thank you to Rhonda and her team for bringing The Secret to the whole world.
So it was on the 31st of March, 2017 that me and my sister had to leave our jobs as the project tenure came to a close in our respective research institutes in India. I moved down to my sister’s place to Bangalore from Hyderabad, India and started living with her and her roommates. During the time we were looking for opportunities we decided to go back and meet our parents who stay some 964 miles away from us. We decided to travel by train as the prices were affordable however, finding a ticket seemed difficult but since we knew the “The Secret” we kept believing. We applied for “Immediate train reservation”, and packed our bags, kept imagining and pretended as if we were boarding the train on the next day for our hometown. For “Tatkal, Immediate Reservation” we woke up early the next day and ran to the nearest railway station to book a spot. Unfortunately, being in a metropolitan city we got our names registered at the 3rd spot, which was not that great as our chances of getting a reservation were really slim. However when the counters opened we got reservations as our receptionist was really fast at booking them and we proudly came back with two A/C tickets and got on the train the very next day!!
After visiting our parents we came back to my sister’s place again and started looking for jobs. We were very clear about what we wanted. We both wanted to work together in the same MNC and in general shifts i.e. from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 pm. So we wrote down about the minutest details and started visualizing and maintained our gratitude journals. For about 4 weeks nothing happened. Being a fresher, I still came across certain opportunities but my elder sister didn’t get much opportunities. However we still kept applying in the meanwhile and looked for opportunities. Our salaries were also getting exhausted and fear started to creep in. However both of us remained positive by visiting temples, playing with the neighbors kids, practicing gratitude and meditating.
Meanwhile I received a call from one of the 2nd leading CROs (Clinical Research Organisations) in the world for the position of a Medical writer. This company was asking for a 2 year’s contract of which I didn’t approve of and I eventually turned down the offer. The morning I turned down the offer that particular evening both me and my sister got an email from the 1st leading CRO in the world for an interview. My sister jumped in joy because that was the particular company we had specifically mentioned about in our journals and my sister immediately affirmed saying “This Job is ours!!”.
We prepared hard for the interview, however what happened later blew our mind. Both of us cleared the aptitude round easily, however in the technical round we got a little demoralized by the people who interviewed us. My sister was immediately shifted to some other domain to give another interview on the same day-which didn’t turn out to be good for her. However, while returning home I got a call from the HR to come the next day for a face to face interview. Both of us were devastated as me and my sister had constantly imagined ourselves working in the same company which no longer seemed possible as my sister’s interview went miserable. Devastated we “let go”of all our desires and moved on.
The next day as my sister was not going to make it, I halfheartedly boarded the bus for my final round of interviews and my sister also accompanied me as she does every time I go for an interview. On the bus, suddenly she gets a call from an unknown number. It turns out to be the HR from yesterday’s interview who told her that there was another vacancy available and she was fit for the role. The HR asked whether she was in a position to give another interview that very day. She immediately agreed. We both jumped with joy! That day both of us got recruited in the same company. My sister joined on the 21st and tomorrow is my joining day.
The Secret has taught us the biggest lesson, which is how to look at even the most negative situations positively and to keep believing in one’s dreams, however insane it might seem. We believed in our dreams so stubbornly that the Universe had no other option than to believe in us too!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Rhonda and your entire team for sharing The Secret. God bless you all! Keep shining! Keep dreaming big!
