Here’s the story of Chef Tesia, I am sure it will motivate and help you.
I was introduced to The Secret by a co-worker in 2007, but it wasn’t until March of 2008 before I stumbled upon the book in my church book store one Sunday morning. At that point in my life I was pretty stagnant: I was experiencing challenges in advancing in my job, in a 6 year relationship with my wonderful boyfriend but seeing no hint of a marriage proposal anytime soon. I had almost $40k in credit card debt, was told by doctors that I would never carry a child, and the list goes on. I was in a rut!
Then I read The Secret! I read it in 2 weeks, the fastest I’ve ever read any book from beginning to end in my life. It changed my whole life!!!
I got married one month after reading The Secret! I changed my career to follow my passion in becoming a chef, and four years later we had a beautiful baby girl! So for the past 8 years I have used the principles I learned about the Law of Attraction in just about every aspect of my life and it has made a true believer of me.
But then last year I started to experience some more challenges in my life and so I made some decisions to change my life in the most incredible ways imaginable. I started to put forth more and more positive energy into the universe and asked for changes so big it would make even the most cynical disbeliever become a true believer in the principles of the Law of Attraction.
I came up with an idea for a new restaurant concept and drafted the business plan myself. Everyone said it was a brilliant idea but that I was underestimating the level of difficulty it would be to take on such a task by myself. So I created a vision board with pictures and affirmations of my restaurant, and pictures of myself as CEO and Executive Chef. I printed out The Secret Check from the Bank of the Universe and made it out with the funds I needed to open my restaurant. I continued to add more to my vision board: my dream house, the truck I had been wanting for over 10 years, statements about improving my credit score, savings account, fully funded retirement accounts, paying off my student loans, building a college fund for my daughter, happiness, health and safety for my family, a picture of myself at my ideal weight and how the beauty I feel inside of me will always shine on the outer surface of me. I began to meditate for the first time in my life. I would share the magic of The Secret with friends and co-workers around me and the wonderful experiences I’ve had in using the Law of Attraction. I even started finding LOA messages, pictures and affirmations online and would save them in my phone so that I could look at them and reinforce my thinking and actions whenever I started to falter. I would listen to the audio version of The Secret in my car everywhere I drove, and tried to consistently focus on the feelings of feeling positive, happy and joyful as I would once I achieved everything on my vision board. In November of last year I posted on Facebook messages of gratitude for everything and everyone in my life for 30 days straight in a row, without missing a day.
Then it happened! On December 7th my family and I were involved in an automobile accident. Thankfully we all survived with minor injuries, but injuries substantial enough to prevent me from going back to work for several weeks. While I was home recovering, it seemed as though the Universe started to move all the things I wanted in my direction and I declared that 2016 would be the beginning of the greatest years of my life! And so it has!
My mind has been opened up so wide to ideas, plans, instructions and directions to achieving everything I’ve been wanting, even things I’ve wanted but didn’t realize it. I’m now working for myself as a personal chef, making more money than in my previous job, and having more time to spend with my family and friends since I now make my own schedule. I’ve even figured out a way to carry out my brilliant restaurant concept without having to come up with that huge startup capital and overhead costs, and manage it all on my own which, in turn, will lead to achieving all my financial goals. And I am finally getting my truck since my car was totaled in the accident, and eventually finding my dream home.
I could go on and on about how The Secret has and will continue to change my life for the better, but this letter has gone on long enough now. I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to Rhonda Byrne and The Secret team for sharing this wonderful gift with the world and helping me to live the happiest life I could ever imagine.
With much gratitude,
