Since the age of 19, I have tried many things to make some money. Starting with affiliate marketing and SEO, and all the way to offline marketing, which was more challenging and way out of my comfort zone.
After some success, and however terrifying it was for me at the time, I felt like I was not truly fulfilling my potential.
I started product creation in order to teach people and help others achieve what they were looking for. However teaching people how to make money online became the only way I started to make money online, and I didn’t want to be one of those people that just teach people how to make money by teaching people how to make money.
At this point, after my biggest and most successful launch with the help of many people (Esp. my partner Brad Spencer), I went through a crushing heartbreak. My marriage was slowly dissolving as we grew further and further apart, and I could not see it working into the future.
It took a very long time to finally reach the decision, and it was the hardest decision I ever had to make, but I didn’t know what was to come.
At around the same time I went to a workshop to uncover my emotions. I was closed off emotionally for as long as I could remember, to the point where I thought and rationalised that I just didn’t get feelings.
Feelings were explained logically and anyone who actually “felt” didn’t know the science behind it. That’s how I thought. Until this workshop uncovered stuff that I never thought was in there, and everything from childhood to my teenage life was unravelled.
So when I went through the breakup, and I was feeling my emotions for the first time, I felt it full force like I had never felt anything before in my life.
After months of this (where I couldn’t work at all) I discovered something even worse. My self-esteem and self worth was completely tied to my wife, from the age of 15, and without her my self esteem hit rock bottom.
I realised after a time that the only person that could help me was myself. I was my own worst enemy but also my own best friend. Instead of focusing on the enemy part that was dragging me down, I started to focus on the best friend part.
So I started to work on my self esteem. I still had not gotten back to work, and I wasn’t even sure what I wanted to do yet. It was a confusing time, but I was ready for anything.
After another month of properly working on myself, I finally reached a place where I was ready to start focusing on growing and building again.
At this point I discovered my true calling. I realised that the Internet Marketing arena always talks about how 97% of people will fail, while only 3% will take action and be successful. This may be true, but it’s not just about taking action.
I realised that one of the main reasons for this crazy ratio is that those 97% of people lack simple self-esteem and self worth. If they truly believed in themselves then they would not be a part of the 97%.
I had low self-esteem since I was very young, and my girlfriend, then wife, made me forget for a time. But when I didn’t have her, I realised what its truly like to have low self esteem. I couldn’t work, I couldn’t function, and I definitely could not become successful online.
I genuinely feel like my true passion is helping those 97% achieve a sense of self-esteem and self worth. I want to start helping them on their journey of self growth so they can be happy, take passionate action, and work towards their dreams.
However I’m a very scientific person. I don’t like washy washy techniques, and I also love simplifying everything to its basic forms.
I hate complicated processes, long and difficult self-growth methods, and things that seem to take forever but never work. And trust me, I have tried many techniques and methods, and I always go for the most scientific and proven, yet simplest methods I can find.
I want to help people realise their true worth, and find self esteem within themselves so they can grow and become the best version of themselves just like I am doing on a daily basis.
This is my true calling, at this stage in my life.
Other areas that I want to explore are fitness and social relations. If people love their body then the mind will follow, and if people can interact with others and see how much others like their presence then they will love themselves even more.
It’s all connected to self growth and self esteem. And even if I teach people how to make money online, it will always be from a position of growth and happiness, never from a place of profit and financial well being.
I want happiness to spread through the world, one person at a time. And I won’t ever stop until I can share my message with as many people as I can reach.
I’m looking forward to my new path, and I would love to hear what you think.
