Such an interesting week indeed!
In our webinar this week, Mark J asked us if we had given ourselves Permission for Abundance. And actually this could be replaced with anything you desire. What is so interesting, is that this week I did experience the result of this permission. I had already given myself permission, even though it was not a concious thought.
I have a story to tell about this, but before I do I really must give you some background first. Stay with me folks 🙂
You see, I lost my son Cliff to suicide in May of 2005. I had been in the Mortgage business for many years, and with the crash in the market, and the loss of my only son, lets just say I was out of commission for several years.
I entered back into the mortgage business in February of 2012, almost 7 years after the loss of my son. A lot had happened during those 7 years, and we had lost just about everything. I got tired of all of the loss, and it was time to step up and take back my life, the life I desired.
So, since licensing had changed, I now, at the age of 50 was going to have to get yet another license. It wasn’t as easy as it had been many years before, but I did it! And so the path began. Now one of my challenges was that the vehicle we had was older and had over 150k miles on it. About a year after getting back into the mortgage business, my boss had a car that she was just a tad upside down on. She could have very easily sold it and taken the hit, but she did an amazing thing for me, and she allowed me to take over payments. What a gift that was for me! My credit at this point in my life was non existent. So, I happily took over payments and finally had a reliable car we could actually travel in. My original goal was to pay that car off in 12 – 18 months. Unfortunately that did not happen. And, it was weighing heavy on me that I had not yet gotten this car in my name and refinanced it. I had been working hard to re-establish my credit but one thing after the other had kept me from accomplishing this goal. Well, when I was on vacation a week or so ago, I had just told my friend Kelly that once I paid off my car, I was going to lease a Mercedes. I knew this was way off into the future, but it was a real burning desire of mine. So back to last week. I had determined that by 1-16-2015 I had to get this car situation handled. I had put everything credit wise into place, and I applied at a local credit union to refinance the car. I was declined for the loan and was absolutely devastated! And yet, this goal of mine had to be met. I went online to our local Carmax and filled out an online inquiry. A really nice gentleman called me and I told him everything the credit union had told me. He advised me to take a look at the cars they had online, and once I had picked out a car to give him a call and he would run it over the phone. So I did, and guess what…..I found a really nice white Mercedes C300 Sport for $25k and it only had 29k miles on it. So I called him back and he ran my credit……I was approved for the best financing they offered. Hmmmm, chance? I don’t think so….to top it all off, zero down! I was going to trade in the car I had been making payments on, but my boss decided she would just take it back if that was okay with me. Such an incredible blessing for me indeed. ♥
Funny thing is, I have never in my life ever owned or desired to own a luxury car. This was a first for me, and I now have it. Of course now I have to pay for this car, but for once in my life I purchased a car after somebody else took the hit of depreciation! Yahoo!
So yes, I have given myself permission to have and be whatever I desire in life. And….I believe I will have it! Without belief, you simply cannot obtain it.
As this week wraps up I am so very blessed to be on this amazing journey, and if any of you want to experience what I am, just reach out to me….I would love to share this with you anytime!
There is no such thing as Chance, Coincidence or Luck ♥
