Let’s go back in time to March 2008.
Up until this date my husband and I were living the average, ‘normal’ life. We both had jobs outside the home and really had not even considered any other option.
Over the years I have heard a statement a few times now and I believe that it clearly defines our state at that point in our history.
“You do not know what you do not know!”
How true is that? Stop and think about it.
We were working hard for bosses in their businesses. We got paid an average hourly rate, but were just getting by with no real possibility of changing our ‘lot in life’. It was unlikely that anything would really change, but rather we just thought that we were doing what we were meant to be doing.
Waking up each day, working long hours, going to bed and then waking the next morning to repeat it all again. It was like the expected cycle of life that we saw our parents, siblings and friends doing.
But then in March 2008 we received a pamphlet about a 4-day wealth creation seminar. It was something that we had not heard about before.
I think of the saying, “When the student is ready then the teacher will appear.”
It was like that for us. We signed up to attend this 4-day event and even paid a large sum of money to be a part of it. But I am glad that we did, as this was the start of changes in our life and in our thinking.
This event planted seeds in our mind that we could think and do things differently from what we had been told at school and at home. This was the beginning of us walking a different path from many of those around us.
We will continue over the coming weeks delving deeper into the experiences that we then went through. Looking back there were some crazy times and decisions that were made that caused us to trek for years ‘through the wilderness’ as we sought to find what would work for us personally to take us from where we were to where we want to be financially in our lives.
