I am going to share information that is going to help you in your life. If you are looking for peace, if you are looking to be financially free, if you are looking to be fit, if you are looking to be healthy and not getting sick, if you are looking to have a happy, functional family, if you are looking to have a successful business and if you are looking to have a successful social life, this article is for you.
If you have already figured everything out and you have already found your happiness…
I do not think this article is going to help you. And if you are not looking for any of the things I mentioned, then this article is not for you.
I am not selling you anything. If you know me, if you follow me, I do not make articles to sell. I make articles to persuade you to have a better life. Since I enjoy the fruits of the good habits I have, I want to teach you a couple of things that you can do to improve your life. I found my happiness. I have achieved many things that I just mentioned, but what really matters is that you find your happiness. If you are not happy, it does not matter how much money you make.
It does not matter how fit you are. It does not matter how big your family is. It does not matter how successful your business is or how many people you have around you. If you are not happy, none of these things matter, but if you can find your happiness that means that you are already successful.
I am going to tell you briefly about my life…
So you know where I come from and have an idea of what I am going to teach you. It is going to help you. I came from a very dysfunctional, poor family. My mom was a heavy alcoholic. When I was 12 years old, she disappeared and has been missing ever since. To this day we do not know where she is. My dad was not part of my life, until three years ago. I decided to help him come to the US to join me.
Being poor was difficult for me that when I was 14 years of age, I left home. I started working at that time. I got into drugs, not heavy drugs, but I did get into drugs, drinking and smoking. I was on the wrong path. When I turned 20, I did not know how to manage my money. I was not healthy.
I was unsuccessful in my social life and in my relationships. I owe people money. Not knowing how to save money, I was always broke. As soon as I made money, I would spend it and then I would ask for help to pay my bills. I was not happy; I was very empty. If you have been there, you know what I am talking about. You know how it feels. It does not matter what you do or where you go, you feel empty inside.
It was not until I turned 28 years of age that I turned my life around…
I am 39 years of age right now and I feel like I am 20. The reason I feel that way is because I am in shape and one of the things that I enjoy right now is being strong, being healthy, not suffering from any illnesses. Also, I enjoy financial freedom. I make money doing what I love.
A couple of hours ago I was at Starbucks, I was working on the computer and a friend asked if I was working and I said yes. “Do you ever have fun?", she said.
“Yes, I have fun all the time. I just came from the studio, where I train our members to improve their lives. I write articles. I read, I take my dogs for a walk, I hike, exercise, create videos and programs. It is all very enjoyable because I love what I do.”
I have some investments that are making me money. My goal is not to stop working or retire. My goal is to continue bringing value to people and change their lives. So, I have achieved all that. I no longer feel the emptiness that I felt in my heart. I have learned how to control my thoughts.
I have a connection with a superior power, with God. Also, I am successful in my social life and personal life. I got married 8 months ago and people say, "Well it's all new, that is why you are happy”. Believe me, I have had other relationships and I can feel the difference, when you choose the right partner and not only choosing the right partner, but also knowing how to play your role in that relationship has shown me that having a successful marriage is not difficult. It is like anything else, having a business, or being in shape. It has its good times and challenges. But if you know how to deal with it and you know how to listen to your partner, it does pay off.
So that is another thing that I have achieved…
My business is successful. Even with the pandemic we are still busy. We stay open and people support us, and we are not suffering economically. Lots of businesses are suffering right now and some have gone bankrupt. Even though our income has decreased, we are not worried about having to close our doors. Thank God, we are successful. So, the reason I am telling you this is because if you want to be at peace, make sure your heart is full and you are happy, which is why you are living this life, you have to learn how to deal with life. Being in peace, successful and fulfilled is about learning how to overcome adversity.
Something else I learned is how to grow a successful business. I am going to teach you how I did that, as well as how to make money and invest it. I am going to teach you how to succeed in your social life and to choose the right friends and learn to trust them, because that is it important.
So are you ready for the secret…?
The secret is reading all the books possible. You can find years of experience in one book from many people who already made the mistakes you don’t have to make.
Learning is a need for my happiness and progress. I am still reading and I am not planning to stop until I die. AS a matter of fact, I ordered more books. All these books taught me how to achieve my goals. I read for at least half an hour every day. So, I really recommend that you start reading books and that you start doing what I do to achieve your goals.
Here I am going to give you my top 10 list of books…
Now you will draw your own conclusions from these books that you will add to your knowledge, so I recommend you buy these books.
The first book that I read is Flying over the Swamp.
It talks about how to overcome adversity. It gives examples of people that have adversity. The main character overcomes his losses and later become leaders.
The other book that I really recommend is The Shack.
This is an amazing book. About a guy full of hate, angry at God and at life because of the loss of his daughter and the abuse he suffered at the hands of his father. In the story he actually meets God. You must read the book and draw your conclusions. In the book God taught him how to live life, how to forgive, how to understand people, how to be with people and not to judge them. It is a very amazing book.
The third one I recommend is What Clients Love.
It teaches you how to treat people. It teaches how to help people feel loved, so they know you care about them. This book shows you how to go about doing that.
The fourth book is, The Monk who Sold his Ferrari.
It is about this man who was very successful. He was rich but he was not happy, and he did not know what was missing in his life. Then he had a heart attack and finally he decided to get rid of everything. He flies to Asia, where he meets a monk that taught him how to live and what he was missing in his life. Read the book and find out what he does with the knowledge that he learned. It’s a great book.
The fifth book is, Pathway to Success.
This book will teach you how to treat people, how to make a business, and how you exchange your services for money. But it is not superficial. It will teach why people behave the way they do, the psychology of people. You must do the right things to help people, so they see the value of your services.
The sixth book is, Trust me, I’m Lying.
This book tells you about how the media, how the articles, how television, and how the news are actually lying because one person comes up with a lie and all follow. They publish an article, the other person copies that article and so on. If you read this book, you can see through the lies and you can see through the agenda and the propaganda that the government has. I really recommend that one.
The seventh, The Psychology Of Persuasion: Influence.
People who try to sell us things study human behavior. They know how we are going to react; they try to persuade us to buy, to vote, to do things that we normally would not do because they know how to get to our negative side. But if you learn how to defeat your negative side, then you become a better person and you can see through the propaganda and won’t be manipulated by it.
The next one number eight is called Youth in Ecstasy.
It deals with how people can get lost in pleasure and how we can start gaining control of that.
This is the ninth one on my list. Killing Sacred Cows, so this book talks about financial freedom.
It talks about all the myths out there, about investments, how to generate money, how to open a business, and how insurance is helpful. It talks about the best way you can invest your money so that it grows. It talks about liabilities, ways we lose money and what we can do to make money without working.
The last book ,The Business of the 21 Century.
This book also talks about a couple of other myths about money.
So, the whole point of reading is for you to learn and once you get that information you apply it in your life. We talked about a couple of areas, where you may want to improve to be happy. The point is that there are so many books out there. I Just gave you ten. So, if you want to be financially free, read books about that. If you want to be happy, read books about that. If you want to be in shape, read books about that. If you want to have a connection with a Superior Power, read books about that. Whatever your interests are, educate yourself; that will give you the knowledge that you need to become successful and happy in this life.
