What happened over the following three years of writing out these goals, is nothing short of a miracle.
Here is how it all played out on the Universe playground:
I got a notice in the mail, saying that my real estate sales license was coming up for renewal, and that I needed to take a class if I wanted to keep the license.
I started the class, with my license I could start my own brokerage company.
I decided that I would give 10% of our growth commission from each sale to charity.
In 2003, my wife and I were driving to the restaurant, on the way, I stopped at an ATM to get $20 out. As we drove, we started throwing around names for the new charity based brokerage. We finally settled on Benefactor reality.
After lunch, we walked around. A man came up to us and asked if we could spare any money. He needed $8 so that we could sleep at the shelter and get a meal and a shower.
I gave two dollars, and I apologize for not having more, but he thanked us gracefully.
As we walked away, I remembered that I had $20 from the ATM and that it was in my back pocket. I turned around, and went back to the man, and saw that another Good Samaritan was giving him a $5 bill. I gave him the $20, and advice about self-help and psaum from the Bible. As we walked away, I felt the same thrill from Mary's hug, and saw this as a test to see if I was serious about Benefactor Reality.
Then I got opportunities to sell three house and get more money in 3 days than in 6 months. My friend mysteriously called me to say "The money is there", I left my job, I paid all my debts, had the car I visualized in my goals, went to ski in Colorado.
