From Ruin to Rolex:
For most of my life – and like most other people – I was kind of sleepwalking through life, just going through the motions of the day to day grind. I didn’t really have a specific plan for what I wanted from my life. I just thought that one day something miraculous would just happen to me and with the exception of a few challenges here and there, life was ok for the most part. I certainly wasn’t living my dream life, and I was far from where I would have liked to be financially (Can anyone relate? ) but I was ok. Until 2008…
Like many others I was affected pretty hard in 2008. It started with a phone call that my wife and I had both been laid off. When we got that call we were freshly home from the hospital with a 2 day old baby girl. The next 2 years were the toughest I had ever experienced. As a matter of fact, we lost nearly everything, house included.
Being a generally positive person for the most part, I never pointed my finger or blamed anyone. It makes you examine your life a little harder though. I remember thinking, “I’m a good person, Why did this happen to me? What did I do wrong?”
Then it happened.
Someone handed me the book “The Secret”. It changed my life and sent me down a path of personal development. One of the people featured in the movie version of the book, Mike Dooley, was a best selling author, so I started to dive into his material. I traveled to one of his conferences and after hearing him speak, a switch got flipped in my head.
Along the path I received confirmation that the way we think, speak and act is a product of our individual belief systems – and has a huge impact on the way we interact with the reality around us. I have come to understand that We all have limiting beliefs about ourselves that dictates our worthiness, and we are all self-made based on our own self-worth. Upon further examination I realized that my previous thoughts, speech and actions were not in alignment with what I truly wanted.
So I changed them. Immediately.
I eventually went on to be Certified by Mike Dooley personally to teach the life changing principals in his NY Times Best-Selling book “Infinite Possibilities” and was invited to be a guest speaker at his conferences held around the country multiple times.
Over the next few years my life changed in miraculous ways. Specifically in regard to finances. I went from borrowing from friends and family to buying luxury items with cash.
I now teach people and groups all over the country how to maximize their opportunities and potential by deliberately using the power of what they say, think & do. No one has to be a victim of circumstance and that you are ONLY limited by your own beliefs. We are all here not just to survive, but to thrive. I also hold a seminar twice a year in Key West, Florida called Possibilities in Paradise with my partner Leigh Daniel.
Being able to create the life you desire isn’t limited to the elite. It doesn’t matter who you are or your upbringing, education or background. Your past does not dictate your future, you can begin to take the steps toward living your dream life any time and from anywhere. You can start right now. Why wait any longer?
