I grew up in Ontario's industrial heartland, on "the wrong side of the tracks," in a moderately sized city. I went to school there, grew up, got a steady job, met my partner, got married, raised a family.
And when I retired after 37 years of work I received pension. It was enough to keep us going at that time over twenty years ago. My partner didn't get one at all! But, of course, when we reached that ripe old age of 65 we did get OAS and CPP. That was it. Over time, with inflation running at three to five per cent, and a pension which grew at the rate of one per cent, if at all, it soon became difficult to "make ends meet." Still, we managed by very careful budgeting and by "watching our pennies." We bought a "new" second hand car every five years or so, and we considered ourselves blessed to be able to take the odd trip to see at least one of the members of our widely dispersed family every year.
But I was certain that there was more to life than we were experiencing. I could see it all around me. I had a dream—not a clear vision mind you, but it was there—vaguely. Something inside me told me that I was able to do more, to be more. I wasn't sure, exactly, what, and I really didn't know where to start. So I started reading, and I read everything I could find on the subject of life improvement. I haven't stopped to this day. Somehow we found the funds to attend life improvement seminars whenever we were able to get away. It was through authors like Wayne Dyer, who wrote the book "The Power of Intention," Esther Hicks, who wrote the book "Ask And It Is Given," and Amit Goswami, author of the book "The Self-Aware Universe," that I began to see myself and this Universe, of which we are all a part, all connected. Studying under the masters Wattles, Hill and Proctor, I was soon accumulating wealth, and it was through Wattles that I discovered my purpose in living.
But it wasn't until I learned how to harness the power of the subconscious mind to create a new way of living that it all changed.
That's when things started happening. People came into my life just when I needed them. Money started trickling in; just a little bit at first, but then in ever increasing amounts.
My vague dream became a vision so vivid that I could not get it out of my head. It stayed with me day and night. It was exciting! And before I knew it, I was living it!
Today our net worth has climbed to over two million dollars. We take several holidays each year, usually including at least one exotic cruise. And we travel first class when it's available. We have two cars; a luxury car for long trips when we decide not to fly, and a small 4-cylinder car for running about town.
We consider ourselves wealthy, and our wealth and our success continue to grow as we expand the service we provide to the community at large. We consider ourselves quite in control of our lives and truly blessed.
