This Worked for Me
on July 28, 2013
This book has so many positive reviews as well as tips on how others have used this book, that I choose to give a testimony, rather than a traditional review if that's ok.
First, I find that when I read reviews of books such as these, the main question at the top of my list is "Does / Did it Work?" So I'm going to answer that question for myself "Yes, it worked for me."
Last year, I was three months into unemployment, a dwindling savings account and no prospective jobs in sight. If I couldn't find a job before my unemployment benefits ran out, I was going to have to move in with a relative, get rid of my two pets and possibly sell my car. While web surfing one evening I came across a listing of Catherine Ponder's affirmations and although I knew nothing about her I knew this was something I needed more of in my life. The wording and meanings was something I've never seen before in other affirmations I've read, almost as if they were just for me and me only. I immediately jotted them down and in between job hunting, read them out loud for five minutes twice a day. Slowly my thoughts and outlook of despair began to fade and I became more thankful of what I had as opposed to what I didn't. My whole thought process was completely turned around.
Four months into unemployment I continued with the affirmations and giving thanks for my blessings and I was offered a temporary position with a great company that I really enjoyed.
Five months into unemployment I purchased this book and delved even deeper into the affirmations and practiced the many prosperity laws Ms. Ponder beautifully and gently explains with examples and her own testimonials.
Six months into unemployment I was offered a permanent full time position with the company I was temping for and I didn't need to move in with a relative, sell my car or get rid of my pets. In other words I ended up ok.
I'm not a terribly religious person but I do believe in a higher being so I wasn't turned off at all by the many God references. For me the main focus was to keep my thought process clean and avoid negativity as much as possible. I was finally able to let things go and forgive myself for mistakes and bad decisions from my past and start accepting that I deserved a good life and should expect it. This way of thinking I believe was the key for unlocking my door to employment and the freedom from worrying about my financial situation.
Again, this has not been much of a review as much as a testimony, but I hope that it will help someone make this decision to purchase this book. We all deserve a good life. This was not an overnight process, it takes work and commitment. The main thing is to keep at it.
