Jesus and the Law of Attraction
I know that my story may be long, but I still can't believe what happened to me!! It all happened before I even knew what the law of attraction was. Now, looking back on it, I can see proof that it was the law of attraction and it did work!!
I took a job at a home improvement company in Millwork. This company also paid commission! I had sales experience, but I didn't know anything about Millwork. When I took the job, they said that it would be no problem and that they would train me.
It was a new store that was opening up. One day, I was walking with one of the department managers. He told me that Millwork was not the department that I wanted to be in. The "golden" department, so to speak, was Appliances. I asked him what was so great about talking about washers and dryers all day. He told me that in a slow economy, people can usually hold off on buying new doors and windows, however, they don't hold off on buying a new washer or dryer if it breaks. On top of that, you can make killer commission! I asked him how do you get into Appliances. He looked me square in the eye and said, "you will never work in this department. The waiting list is way too long." Oh, well, I thought. I was excited about my new job anyway.
Little did I realize that working in Millwork was a predominately male environment, and my co workers did not like having a female in the department. They wouldn't help me if I had a simple question. They would talk about me behind my back, steal my sales and complain to management about me. If I did make a mistake, they wouldn't tell me what I did wrong. I told them that if they didn't tell me what I did wrong, then I would continue making the same mistake all over again. I didn't know that people could be so cruel, and they actually wanted to watch me fail.
Everything that could possibly go wrong, did go wrong. I knew the inevitable was coming. I was either going to be demoted to cashier or fired. I wasn't going to try to fix or control the outcome anymore. It seemed like every time I did, it only made matters worse.
I don't go to church, and I am not religious at all. I don't read the bible and I never really prayed before either. For some reason, a thought came to mind. I threw my hands up in the air, and said, "Dear Lord Jesus, not my will but yours will done." Any time a fearful thought came to mind, I just kept repeating the same phrase over again.
Sure enough, they called me into the office. This was it!! My fate was decided. They told me that they were transferring me to Appliances!! My mouth dropped as I stood there in shock. I wanted to ask them why since they could obviously tell that I wasn't the most qualified, and it didn't make any sense. Needless to say, I decided not to ask that question.
That was 4 years ago, and I have been working in Appliances ever since. I am an expert now when it comes to selling and I do make killer commission. The Law of Attraction works even if you never heard of it before!!
