In 1984 I had a new journey in my life, I had a lovely home 3 bedrooms in a village and I owned a house with a shop front which I rented, I was 23 going on 24 years old. You have to understand I had no real qualifications I was not an academic so how did I manage to start to feel success?
In the previous two years I had been reading books on the laws of attraction, how to have a positive attitude, I didn't watch TV or even engage with news papers. I had doubled the size of my house I had an investment property and I had doubled my income with moving jobs.
However, I still was not satisfied, I was happier in my relationship, I had a new partner and I was enjoying my job. Therefore the biggest error I made, looking back, ( I don't regret this error ) I stopped feeding my mind I stopped setting real goals and I just sat back and enjoyed life.
The next turn of events were interesting. I worked for a London based company and I was on a basic wage with a 2% commission on net sales, I was flying. I became arrogant and my ego grew. Then came the crunch foreign exchange collapsed and the company had bought a lot of stock at a high price, so we were not competitive in the market place, my sales dropped. My income reduced, I went to work in a pub 4 nights a week for extra income.
After about a year we merged with another company in the same industry , introduced new products and I was back on the income stream I was used to. After been satisfied for a couple of years we are now in 1986 I started to get more ambitious , I wanted to be in business. It was in my thoughts each day. I started to get unhappy in my relationship, my then partner, who I thought a lot about and still do to this day, had no such ambition. My partner was quite happy to carry on as we were, I came up with a few ideas , I wanted to buy a hotel in the next town, but she didn't want to get involved "lets just carry on as normal". I knew our time had come.
So here we are again, I had set goals and the law of attraction in motion, without realising.
- I started to want more
- My partner did not have the same ambition
- I wanted my own business
- I was desperate to succeed
Interesting what was going through my mind, here's what happened :
- My partner and I split up
- There was a property boom ( I sold my house for about 80% profit in 4 years )
- I bought another house
- I carried on with the company I worked for
- My company allowed me to look to buy into another company while remaining in their employment.
I purchased another house, it ws split into 2 flats, I returned it to a two bedroomed house, re wired, new showers, kitchen etc. My social life was like it had never been before, I started to go to night clubs each weekend for the first time, I had girls in my life and generally partied. BUT I got fed up and wanted more !! I was still not happy !!
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.
