I wrote you last year to tell you how The Secret had begun to change my life only a few weeks after learning about it through a friend. To recap, my life was in complete disarray. In August of 2008 I lost my best friend unexpectedly, my new business suffered a huge loss of over $80,000.00 in a single day the following month, which needless to say threw my financial well-being into crisis. In short, I lost everything. My credit was a wreck, in fact it’s still damaged, and everything I’d worked so hard for essentially fell apart. It was at this time a good friend recommended I watch The Secret.
I’ve kept an accurate account of my progress since applying the lessons learned in The Secret and I have to tell you that life is so much better. I will not bother you with all of the details, but there is one thing I have to share. In one of the lessons in the audio book the idea of a “vision board” was mentioned, and as you might have guessed I started using one. The only thing on that board was a new car – a Ford Mustang. When I put the picture of that car on the board I was as far away from being able to buy one as you can get. There was little hope that it would happen anytime soon given the fact that my credit had been destroyed, not to mention the fact that at that time I was financially ruined.
On Thursday of last week I received a letter from a local car dealership saying that I had been pre-approved for a car loan. I thought it was a mistake, but something told me to call them anyway. Turns out it wasn’t a mistake at all. He asked if I’d like to come down and look at some new cars. I drove by on Sunday and from the highway a single car stood out among all the others: a red 2010 Mustang. I immediately said, “That’s my car.” It was THE ONLY Mustang on the entire lot.
Needless to say, because of the lessons learned in The Secret, that new Mustang is currently sitting in my garage.
This may sound materialistic to those reading it. Obviously life isn’t about “stuff”, and believe me when I tell you how desperately unhappy I was prior to seeing, then reading, The Secret.
As of today my life has turned around and I’ve never been happier. The problems I faced have done a 180 and against all odds, with poor credit in a bad economy where it’s difficult to get a loan even with great credit, I have a brand new car sitting in my garage…my dream car. No co-signer, no co-buyer.
I hope that someone who is thinking about applying these principles, who may be a little sceptical or afraid of what friends and family might think, will read this post. I’m just like you – was just as sceptical as you, and to be honest, was completely embarrassed to tell anyone in my family what I was up to. Those days have passed. The Secret changed my life…and it can change yours too.
