I took a little survey and asked my closest friends and some family members what they would do if they were given a large sum of money. Almost all of them had paying off their debts, giving to charity, a new home or car, some said new clothes, a vacation and so on. Of course I expected everyone to say they wanted to full-fill their dreams. And for most, their dreams were simple and easier to achieve than they think.
My sister-in-law gave me this book titled The Secret. It took me 3 days to read it. It can be considered a self help book although I rather consider it a "life help" book. Everyone needs to read this book if they are stuck in a rut, not happy with their life or do not see any of their dreams coming true. Why? Because it tells you what you need to do in order to have whatever it is you want in life.
After reading it, I took a long hard look at all that I achieved in the last few months. Then I asked myself...."how the heck did I do that?" In some small way I already knew "The Secret" and was living it.
I started with no money, just a dream that a good friend of mine and I chatted about one day. I told her and myself that I was going to do this. Let me just tell you, people thought I was CRAZY! This was in August of 2008 that I came up with the idea of having a Scrapbooking Inn. Now, my complete dream has not yet totally come true since I do not have my Inn...yet. But it will, it is only a matter of time. When you read The Secret it will tell you to ask the universe for what you want....see yourself in that situation, feel yourself there and believe that it will happen. And, if you ask for something and it happens the next day it would be too soon.
So, I made my dream start happening with nothing but a bunch of notes, ideas, and support from family and friends. It was amazing to me that by December 7th, my store was open. Do you realize that it was only 4 months from when I decided I was going to do this? Here, I was already living the Secret to life. Now, that I have realized that I was in charge of creating the dream job I wanted, I can create anything that I truly want in life. So the question I have to ask is...what am I going to do with a million dollars? Believe it or not, I already have that answer. It is for me to know and you to find out....eventually.
