I’m so excited! I can’t lie. Everything happens for a reason, and if anyone doubts this then this story is for you!
As I mentioned last week, there was some pretty big changes in the works, career wise for me. They were definitely a little scary as change always is, and being a single mom solely responsible for a family of 4 it is definitely compounded. But faith in knowing that the Universe has a bigger plan for me kept me focused.
I’m so excited to announce that as of Monday I will be the Director of Business Development for a recruiting and thought leadership group based out of NYC. As most of you know I have an obsessive love affair with New York, so what could be more perfect then frequent travel to my favorite place?
Now I’m going to stop here for a second, and say to all my readers who follow my posts on The Law of Attraction, that this is for you…..
I get letters and comments all the time from people who what a SPECIFIC thing to come true for them, and then they give up or get frustrated when it doesn’t manifest. They focus so heavily on that one specific thing, that they lose sight of the Big Picture. They think that by “wishing, and pretending like its theirs” that this will make their dreams come true.
Sitting back waiting and hoping for what you want to fall in your lap is NOT how The Law of Attraction works! It works with the Big Picture, and that’s where faith comes in. You need to just KNOW that everything will work out the way that it’s supposed to.
AND IT WILL.
But that doesn’t mean you sit around and wait. It means you are proactive and you set goals and you don’t let obstacles (big or small) get in your way. You hustle, as I like to call it. And lord knows I’m a hustler!!
I’d mapped out my “dream job” a few months ago actually. It would be one where I would travel, speak at events, become an industry leader, interact with my clients, build off the name I’d made for myself. It was a pretty far-fetched idea, when I pitched it to my board of directors and not the right fit for the organization at the time. It was out-of-the-box for sure. But I KNEW that’s what I was great at and what I’d love to do.
So I called the owner of the group I’m joining and pitched it to him. He LOVED it! Said the timing was perfect (I KNEW it would be, I KNEW there was no way, if I pitched it right that he could not LOVE it). The next day I got the offer!
I will be traveling to the 8 major US cities, (including NYC!) speaking and hosting events, becoming an industry leader (one of the few women in my field) and interfacing with my clients. It is latterly the position I dreamed up 6 months ago, to the T (but with a nice raise!). As an added bonus I get to work from home so I can be near my babies much more then before. And though my travel will be more frequent, I think being able to be apart of their day will offset the extra travel.
So as I was saying….you MUST believe in the Bigger Picture. I had loved my job, so if all I had focused on was my immediate future with that company I would have instantly lost faith when it wasn’t working out anymore. But instead I remained focused on my larger goals and plan, which is moving my career forward in a very specialized way….and low and behold that’s what come to me!
It works, I’m telling you. I’m living proof 🙂
