    Well, if you've already had the interview and that's the deciding factor, then it's a bit late for the LOA and suchlike to help out, as they tend to be more useful in attracting things that will be of use to fulfill something, but cannot magically change what has already happened (if it really did go that badly, perhaps you actually did well and just need to wait and see). I know some people think of Visualizations and LOA as being something magical that can produce things out of thin air from the universe, but that's not the way it really works. In reality, these things help us to become more aware within ourselves, on a subconscious and conscious level, of the things that will help us to achieve what we want to achieve, whether that is bettering ourselves or obtaining something we want.

    Good luck, and let us know how it went...

    Hugs

    Giles

    Hi Mama_91,

    first of all, good luck with your interview. Your post reminded me of something I read in a book that "blew my mind" a couple of decades ago and taught me that anything is possible. Here's what I copied in one of my journals:-

    "Thoughts become things when they are mixed with definiteness of purpose, persistence, and a burning desire for their translation into riches, or other material objects.

    A little more than thirty years ago, Edwin C. Barnes discovered how true it is that men really do THINK AND GROW RICH. His discovery did not come about at one sitting. It came little by little, beginning with a BURNING DESIRE to become a business associate of the great Edison.

    One of the chief characteristics of Barnes' Desire was that it was definite. He wanted to work with Edison, not for him.
    When this desire, or impulse of thought, first flashed into his mind he was in no position to act upon it. Two difficulties stood in his way. He did not know Mr. Edison, and he did not have enough money to pay his railroad fare to Orange, New Jersey.

    These difficulties were sufficient to have discouraged the majority of men from making any attempt to carry out the desire. But his was no ordinary desire! He was so determined to find a way to carry out his desire that he finally decided to travel by "blind baggage," rather than be defeated. (To the uninitiated, this means that he went to East Orange on a freight train).

    He presented himself at Mr. Edison's laboratory, and announced he had come to go into business with the inventor. In speaking of the first meeting between Barnes and Edison, years later, Mr. Edison said, "He stood there before me, looking like an ordinary tramp, but there was something in the expression of his face which conveyed the impression that he was determined to get what he had come after. I had learned, from years of experience with men, that when a man really desires a thing so deeply that he is willing to stake his entire future on a single turn of the wheel in order to get it, he is sure to win. I gave him the opportunity he asked for, because I saw he had made up his mind to stand by until he succeeded. Subsequent events proved that no mistake was made."

    Just what young Barnes said to Mr. Edison on that occasion was far less important than that which he thought. Edison, himself, said so! It could not have been the young man's appearance which got him his start in the Edison office, for that was definitely against him. It was what he "thought" that counted.

    If the significance of this statement could be conveyed to every person who reads it, there would be no need for the remainder of this book.

    Barnes did not get his partnership with Edison on his first interview. He did get a chance to work in the Edison offices, at a very nominal wage, doing work that was unimportant to Edison, but most important to Barnes, because it gave him an opportunity to display his "merchandise" where his intended "partner" could see it.

    Months went by. Apparently nothing happened to bring the coveted goal which Barnes had set up in his mind as his definite major purpose. But something important was happening in Barnes' mind. He was constantly intensifying his desire to become the business associate of Edison.

    Psychologists have correctly said that "when one is truly ready for a thing, it puts in its appearance." Barnes was ready for a business association with Edison, moreover, he was DETERMINED TO REMAIN READY UNTIL HE GOT THAT WHICH HE WAS SEEKING.

    When he said to himself "I came here to go into business with Edison, and I'll accomplish this end if it takes the remainder of my life." He meant it! What a different story men would have to tell if only they would adopt a DEFINITE PURPOSE, and stand by that purpose until it had time to become an all-consuming obsession!

    Maybe young Barnes did not know it at the time, but his bulldog determination, his persistence in standing back of a single DESIRE, was destined to mow down all opposition, and bring him the opportunity he was seeking.

    When the opportunity came, it appeared in a different form, and from a different direction than Barnes had expected. That is one of the tricks of opportunity. It has a sly habit of slipping in by the back door, and often it comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat. Perhaps this is why so many fail to recognize opportunity.

    Mr. Edison had just perfected a new office device, known at that time, as the Edison Dictating Machine (now the Ediphone). His salesmen were not enthusiastic over the machine. They did not believe it could be sold without great effort. Barnes saw his opportunity. It had crawled in quietly, hidden in a queer looking machine which interested no one but Barnes and the inventor.

    Barnes knew he could sell the Edison Dictating Machine. He suggested this to Edison, and promptly got his chance. He did sell the machine. In fact, he sold it so successfully that Edison gave him a contract to distribute and market it all over the nation. Out of that business association grew the slogan, "Made by Edison and installed by Barnes."

    The business alliance has been in operation for more than thirty years. Out of it Barnes has made himself rich in money, but he has done something infinitely greater, he has proved that one really may "Think and Grow Rich."

    Barnes literally thought himself into a partnership with the great Edison! He thought himself into a fortune. He had nothing to start with, except the capacity to KNOW WHAT HE WANTED, AND THE DETERMINATION TO STAND BY THAT DESIRE UNTIL HE REALIZED IT.

    He had no money to begin with. He had but little education. He had no influence. But he did have initiative, faith, and the will to win. With these intangible forces he made himself number one man with the greatest inventor who ever lived.

    Here's the equasion I added to my journal:-

    F.E + U.B. + A.D. = SUCCESS

    To have a purpose/desire and know WHY you want it (and the WHY is all important) coupled with Flaming Enthusiasm, Unwavering Belief and Absolute Determination you will be ready when opportunity knocks.

    I hope these quotes by Ghandi inspire you and wish you much peace and joy :) :) :)

    "Carefully watch your thoughts, for they become your words.
    Manage and watch your words, for they will become your actions.
    Consider and judge your actions, for they have become your habits.
    Acknowledge and watch your habits, for they shall become your values.
    Understand and embrace your values, for they become your destiny."

    "Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have it in the beginning."
