The Miracle of Asking

My miracle story is how I came to do the Stress management Practitioner training. I had the fortune to hearing both Judy and John Hinwood speak at the inaugural World Thank You Day breakfast two months ago in Brisbane, Australia. At the end of the breakfast, I went up to Judy and told her how wonderful and engaging she was and I enjoyed her speech about gratitude far better than the Keynote presenter, as it touched a chord in my heart.

At this stage, I had been searching in my heart and my mind to find my passion and a new career path. However, I couldn’t come to a decision as all the opportunities I’d come up with couldn’t been great, but I didn’t want to just settle for anything. I wanted to be significant at being the very best that I could be, to assist in changing and moving forward in my life.

I knew that there was more in life for me, but didn’t know what or where. Judy gave me her card and told me about the two day Stress to Strength Experience workshop that was coming up shortly. I attended, and if lifted my heart and I immediately know that this work could be my future soul path and that I could teach and present this work to others and assist them with my own life skills and experiences, as I have lived my whole life in stress and reaction mode.

After the completed of the STS Experience workshop, I left the room, then a few minutes later, went back to say “Thank You” to Judy. Judy held my hands as we spoke and she asked me would I be interested in doing the Stress Management Practitioner training. I said that I would, but I couldn’t due to finances and getting time off work at this point in time. As I work weekends and my colleagues aren’t always easy to get on with, Judy told me to see John, and I told him why I couldn’t, and he gave me an Expect a Miracle card.

I emailed my General Manager the next morning, asking if I could swap shifts and would she be agreeable to my having the time off. She said “Yes”! My colleagues took a bit longer to agree, but after two days, I had it all sorted out.

My next miracle needed to come in the shape of finances, as I had none!

Amazingly, I ended up getting a 2 for 1 deal with John’s Expect a Miracle card. Someone very close to me was able to lend me the money so I could start my new career.

I know I am on the right path now, and I am excited how my future will unfold.

My miracles came from connecting with what Judy talked about around gratitude; being brave enough to approach the speaker at the event; having to courage to then speak to John; and being prepared to ask others for help; then to Expect a Miracle; and finally, being prepared to receive all the wonderful things that continued to happen so my wish could be granted.

My biggest miracle was asking for me, not for others, which has been something I had never done in the past.
