Your Only Limit Is You!
I am writing my story for The Secret.tv for the second time. I received an overwhelming response for my first story, about loving a person and letting him go, from many of the readers from all over the world. I am glad that I can inspire many of you with my secret story.
Today, I am going to write about my career transformation over the past few years. How I have achieved my goal and my dream by following The Magic book by Rhonda Byrne and practicing 28 days of gratitude.
One day I was in my office and I had no work. I checked on Google and found out about the book called “The Magic”. This book is about 28 days of gratitude. You write down in a diary on a daily basis your goals, dreams, your career or work, money, personal desires, relationships or anything you desire. You have to be clear about exactly what you want and be grateful for it and what you already have. You write down how much gratitude you feel by how good you feel. This is a complete 28 days course where you need to write down ten things you feel gratitude towards on a daily basis.
When I started writing in my diary, I actually started feeling grateful for all the things in my life, be they living or nonliving. I realized there were so many things that I ignore or overlook on a daily basis but those things do play an important role in my life.
When I started maintaining ten things on a daily basis for which I was thankful, I was working for the topmost IT company in my domain but I never felt complete satisfaction. The money was not an issue, it was the kind of work I was doing, the technical challenges I was facing, that was main reason for my concern. I felt humiliated and frustrated every day. I somehow tried to keep up my inner strength and confidence and hoped things would change for the better. For me, every day was a struggle.
One good day in my journal, I mentioned that I want to go on-site for work and I wanted to be a technical lead in my company. I also wrote that I wanted to earn X amount of money annually.
Within a few days I got a call from an IT company and after a series of interviews, technical, managerial and an HR round, I got selected and got the job offer!
Within one and a half years I was promoted to Technical Lead and I got the exact pay hike I had wished for! At the same time I got an on-site opportunity with only one exception, it was for a leisure trip and not work related! What else can you ask for?!
This leisure trip is a programme run by my current company. Every quarter and they select only a few employees who have excelled in their respective domain. I was very happy and overwhelmed. I handled many critical projects single handedly and got global appreciation for my work. I was also invited by ISRO to do a technical presentation demonstrating the software that we use.
I then realized the power of The Magic and how it can make your dreams come true.
I hope you all like my story of strength and not giving up on my dreams and goals. The only thing you need to do is wish for it and believe in it because the Universe is listening.
