This story is about career and how we, people, are limited by the society and our thoughts.
2012 I graduated high school and never entered the university. I think the reason was clear, lack of money and motivation. I didn’t want to study just to get a paper since I didn’t know what I wanted. Also my parents couldn’t let me go to the other city to study because the money area was tight.
Even knowing The Secret and LOA, I still didn’t use it much in my daily life. I really believed and everyone around me told me that the only job that an uneducated naive girl can take up to is becoming a waitress or a McDonald’s cashier. My mind was so limited.
So I became a waitress. Things didn’t go right and I had to leave. It really took my confidence away. I wouldn’t lie if I told you that I became depressed and didn’t want to start another job because I felt like a such loser. What can I become if I can’t even handle waitressing?
To shorten the story I moved out to another city, got a new job, then after three months left it and then was jobless for another month. My relationship with my friends got worse, my debts piled up and that was the turning point when I started to actually use The Secret.
First, I wrote down what kind of a job I wanted. It was a long list including big money and passion. I really wanted to like what I do. I didn’t know what I wanted to do, so I left it for the Universe.
I wanted my parents to be proud of me, I wanted to help them financially, I wanted to be proud of myself, I wanted to change.
Then I wrote down things that I’d learned in this other job that I appreciate a lot.
Then I bought a note book and wrote down my schedule, how I wanted it to be.
I bought some office clothes and sent some CV.
Now the good part, I got a respectable job. Needless to say I got the job I love, with an amazing boss, nice working atmosphere, career opportunities and good money. I learn something new everyday. I am able to develop my character to the better everyday and I’m the most grateful for that. I see changes and everything I asked for.
The funny part, I am not special or better than others. Actually I have a co-worker who is in the same level as me and my boss usually asks him “Are you less than Bri?” “No!” But my work results are so much better. And actually he is so right, my co-worker is not any less than me, or I am any better than him. The way I work is not any different from any one else in the company. I don’t have any special skills.
The only difference is that I know The Secret. I usually visualize how I want my results to be, I visualize myself smiling all the way when my boss congratulates me. I focus on the end result and pray, pray, pray. I ask for signs. For example, green cars, whenever I see a green car on my way, I say “Thank you”. It helps me to stay focused and grateful.
Gratitude is my attitude. Believe me guys, gratitude works.
