How I Visualized And Made My Dream Job Become A Reality!
I had recently switched jobs from a stable one to a start up. Within 3 weeks of joining, I got laid off. I landed a new job with another startup within 3 weeks of getting laid off thanks to a few of the people who got impressed with what I had done at the start up.
I was excited to join the new start up. After having spending 3 months there, it slowly dawned on me that this is not what I would love doing. Finance and Accounting was clearly not my forte and I was feeling frustrated. During one of my work days, I saw a job opening with a big software giant, the search engine that we use almost every day! I was lucky enough to get a referral. For the first 3 weeks nothing happened. I used to open up the job description and read it and dreamt of how it would feel to work there! How it would be so amazing to finally not do any more of Finance and Accounting and enjoy each day!
Lo and behold, one fine day I got a call from their HR that the first round of the interview process had been scheduled! It was an over the top feeling! I immediately started doing background research and preparing myself. Every day from my home to office, I used to listen to The Secret. I understood what visualization truly meant and how important it was to feel and not just simply think! One round happened, then the second, then the third and then the fourth! I was clearing all the rounds and my hopes were high!
Suddenly, for the next 3 weeks, there was silence. I started getting frustrated and began to think that “Who am I kidding? This is not going to happen.”. I became so frustrated that I quit my job without having one in hand! I trusted my instincts and immediately began to feel relieved about not having to do the same mundane work every day. But, a part of me was scared since I was without a job. My wife was my biggest strength giving me hope and motivation.
One fine day, I read a quote; “It is very important in life to realize how far you’ve come rather than how far you have to go!” It struck me! I had stopped believing and stopped feeling. I had used The Secret to attract and clear four rounds of interviews. Just because there was a delay didn’t mean that I had to doubt anything. I dug in deeper and realized that my want was still that very job. I wanted it crazy like air! I introspected every day. It wasn’t anything great. Five minutes every day, just to close my eyes and feel how it would all look when I did get the job, the smile on the faces of my friends and family members when I would break the news of me getting a job, the new hope and optimism in my life.
Today, within 5 minutes of waking up, I got a call from the HR congratulating me that I had got selected! I had actually materialized my dream job!
The Secret is something phenomenal. Most people get bogged down by delays. I am here to tell you, don’t. Remember that good things in life have to wait. Remember that there is someone; God, Universe, your Guardian Angel, watching over us all and constantly conspiring to help us achieve what we truly want! Your only responsibility in this whole process is to:
1. Be clear about what you want
2. Believe it’s already your’s. Have unwavering faith. There might be delays. Don’t get frustrated. Trust your intuition and let it guide you.
3. Feel. The most powerful way to attract whatever you truly wish for. Dream about how it’s gonna feel. Be in the state you’re feeling. Be happy. Do things that will bring about more happiness.
4. Let it go! Think of the Universe as your wishmaster. Trust that it’ll take care of your wants.
That’s my story! Stay hungry! Stay foolish! Stay blessed! Believe! Feel! Life is waiting to happen for you!
