This is a story three months in the making. As some of you may already know, my husband, Eric, moved to Florida on September 3, 2011, to find work and locate our new home. I was left behind in New York to sell our mobile home. This is a story of my personal journey over the past 3 months that brought me to reaching my personal goals.
Shortly after Eric left, I began to apply the principles laid out by Napoleon Hill in Think and Grow Rich. Each week, we would read a chapter of this great book and on a forum, we would write lessons about what we have learned from that chapter. I made sure to participate each week to insure I was applying the principles correctly.
I followed each step and listened to my mentors on how I can enhance my thought vibrations. I took a dry erase marker and wrote my self-talk on my bedroom mirror; placed a picture of my home on that mirror with the word “SOLD” written across it.
I wrote an article entitled “How to Manifest Your “Burning Desire” into Reality”. In this article I discussed how I had my husband take pictures of the where he was so I can visualize my new surroundings.
First of October, we had a buyer for our home, however, the mobile home park office denied them park approval. I was devastated! What was I doing wrong? I followed all the instructions and yet things did not go as I expected. This feeling of despair went on for about 3 weeks.
Then, I decided to turn to my mentors for some more help.
It was discovered that in my self-talk I wasn’t saying what I was willing to give for my desire. I changed the self-talk to say I would give “patience”.
I learned about giving loving thoughts to the universe.
I discovered why it is important for you to remain happy and positive most of the time.
I found out that it was okay to be myself and put my needs first so that I can become a better person to help others.
On this journey I began to believe in myself, learning who I am, and what I want to accomplish.
I was persistent in continuing with my self-talk and checking how I was feeling so I could change it back into a positive emotion.
A friend suggested I write myself a check for the asking price and a date I expect to receive it, and I did.
I even used meditation techniques that my mentor shared that just astonished me. During one of these sessions, I was so tired I fell asleep and in my dream, I could see my body glowing with energy and that little sparks were coming off my body and floating up into the universe. That was an awesome experience!
All the while, I had to deal with the emotions of not being with my husband. I felt alone. I had to shield myself from negative people even though they did not think they were. However I knew that if I was not persistent in my actions, it would be that much longer until I was with my husband again.
Thanksgiving was difficult. First year I had to be away from my husband in 12 years and I lost my brother in April, so it was the first holiday without Tim. I worked a 14 hour day on Thanksgiving in hopes to drown out the fact my husband was not home with me. I spent the day, instead, with my client’s family. While there I began to cry and my client’s niece ask if I was ok. I told her about Eric and Tim. She said “It’s ok, we understand. Don’t worry, you are not alone, you are here with us.” I gave thanks for their kindness.
After I composed myself, I got right back into thinking positive thoughts, saying self-talk and visualizing my future. I taped that check to my wall above my desk. Every day, I closed my eyes and began to imagine what it would feel like to get that amount written on the check by the date I provided.
Well today is the day! On the check, I post dated it for November 30, 2011. Last weekend a couple came to view our home; Monday they applied for park approval. And today, November 30, 2011, I received a call from the park letting us know the prospective buyers received park approval!
I WILL MAKE IT TO FLORIDA TO BE WITH ERIC BY CHRISTMAS!
I may not be able to cash that check today, however, the universe still provided me with the answer I was so desperately waiting to hear. It is a done deal!
This was an epic journey for me. I felt the depression of failure and the glory of success. I can apply these same principles and techniques to anything I want to accomplish in life and I will SUCCEED.
I write this in hopes that my story will inspire you to continue on your personal development, no matter how you may perceive the situation around you. With determination, persistence and patience, the universe will find the way for you to reach your desired goals.
I want to thank my friends and family, especially David and Sandi, who were always just a phone call away; and my roommate who was there, no matter what. I want to thank Michael and Linda for creating this wonderful mastermind group, and I also want to thank all the members and those who personally sent me messages of encouragement.
I will forever be grateful for what you have all done for me.
You CAN Love Yourself and have success,
“I Am the Tam”
