Question of the Day


How do we reach a happy ending?

Dear Mike, what were you focused on when your t-shirt company wound down (in terms of speaking, writing, etc)? Can you give me the connecting next step so I can get to the "happy ending" correctly?

Answer


I visualized/defined the end result: fun creative work, wealth and abundance, pie in the sky kind of stuff.

For me, my brain wanted to say, "yeah, a million dollar home... how is joining toastmasters going to get you that?" Yet, I did it anyway. "How are free daily emails going to add up to anything?" Yet, I did �em anyway. These were all I had, and to improve the situation and enhance chances of the Universe coming to my aid, I kept knocking on doors and turning over stones. I learned about NSA, went to their meetings, met people, asked questions, asked for help, asked for direction (to people, not the Universe), and almost imperceptibly connections were made, and wheels began turning. Now, today it's like "WAHHHH!! How did this happen to me?!"
