Happiness comes first...
Hi. First Iíd like to thank Rhonda and her team for such excellent work. As a part-time life coach I always insist my clients watch The Secret before coming to their first session. I feel itís one of the most important tools we have to get the client into the correct mind-set before we even begin. Iíd like to tell the fantastic stories of all the things Iíve manifested in my ten years of using The Secret, but Iíd have to write a book. In fact, I am writing one and at this point itís only for my kids once they grow up. Iíd love for them to know about the journey their mother and I took and the changes weíve made over the years before and after they were born. For now Iíll just stick with the latest one.
Having manifested a few years off work in a very financially secure position to watch my kids grow up, something most fathers never get the chance to do, I decided it was time to go back to work. Since my last salary had been £50K a year, I decided that although the money was good, I wanted an easy, enjoyable work life which would allow me to remain happy at home, so I would probably have to accept less money. That was, of course, until I decided that I could have the money as well! (Itís my life and I make up the rules!!)
Just two weeks after making this decision I was offered a job for £65K a year, exactly the amount I was looking for, but the story doesnít end there. It came with very flexible hours, a gym, and a beautiful journey to and from work. What more could I ask for? Having made a concerted effort to bring happiness into the lives of work colleagues during my first year there, I decided that Iíd leave it up to the universe to give me what I needed, when I needed it. As long as I was happy and I could bring happiness to others it didnít matter about the money or the material objects anymore.
Well, the universe brought it in! - Another house closer to work with more space, more garden, beautiful sunsets each night and great neighbours. And just to top it off I was offered another job for more money. Not sure if I wanted to give up the great job, working hours and friendly people I currently worked with, I decided to leave it up to the universe again. And boy-oh-boy did the universe bring it in! My current employer gave a counter offer worth £100K a year! All this after I used some techniques to rid myself of the stigma I had attached to people who earned six-figure salaries!
People at work often say to me that Iím happy because of the money I earn. In reality Iím on the money I earn because Iím happy, and, more importantly, grateful! Being grateful for what youíve had, what you currently have, and what you are going to have as if you already have it is the most important gift you could ever give yourself. Treat yourself this weekend, be grateful!
Best Wishes to you all.
