In 1989 I had started on another path to success, in fact I thought I had arrived. My mentor Stewart convinced me I was part of his family, he worked on my mental state to get me to a point of jumping off a cliff with him. This would have been all good, if he loved people and used money, but he loved money and used people. I do not regret this time, as a matter of fact I thank him and bless him, as I would not be as succesful today with out this experience.
The company was doing about 700,000 turnover at this time and I worked 6 days a week, focusing on sales and managing the warehouse and distribution. In 1995 the company was doing about 1.2 million and making good profit, my wife and I moved out of our rented home and bought our first house together, we also had our first child. Stewart asked me if he could take 6 months away from the company as he was developing a farm he had bought, I thought I had arrived.
About one year later things started to get tense, Stewart's game plan was to reduce my standing with in the company, I suddenly realised that he was the boss on this 60/40 deal. Over the period of the next 4 years I started to hate going to work, everything I did in his eyes was wrong, if staff didn't conform to his way of thinking or do as he said he would target them to make their lives a misery.
It was time to go, then something happened , I picked a book up called The Power Of The Subconscious Mind. This book had been with me for 10 years, that was the last time I read it. My self esteem was low, I was unhappy, I needed to change things. I read this book time and time again. I put into practice the principles it said to do and to me, at that time, they seemed bizarre.
This is what happened:
- I read and studied
- The laws of attraction stood out
- It explained faith cards
- How to visualise
- How to ask each morning and night for a way out.
After about 6-12 months opportunities presented themselves:
- An idea popped into my mind sell our home and rent
- An opportunity came to buy land and build our own house
- An idea came to my mind to buy another company
- I found a company to buy and was negotiating quietly
- Stewart called me into his office and offered to buy me out
Wow what a shift, why did these event take place ? Luck ? you could say that , The Power Of The Subconscious Mind and I would disagree.
So I thought I had arrived at my final destination, but my next journey takes place.
If you want to follow the rest of my journey I will be posting each day, I hope you find my journey interesting please comment and share
I am now happy and fulfilled achieving my purpose, I have a property business and an online business. I have learnt to serve others ( as I hope I am doing now ) respect others for what they are trying to achieve no matter how big or small their ambition. I work on my attitude each day and look to help anyone I can on a daily basis.
