Every No, Setback, or Delay, is another opportunity to expand my knowledge. This is what I’ve seen. So in the short term, it seems that I have nothing, or I have ‘lost’ everything, but honestly that is not true. In the long term I have acquired so much knowledge, that I am able to make 100x more then I did before.
This knowledge that I have acquired, cannot be counted in money. It is so much more than that. I have become enlightened.
To put it in perspective, I had a big house, cars, unlimited amount of holidays in Amsterdam. Which by the way was my parents fortune 🙂 Left it all behind in 2011 for self growth. So in 2013, based on social influences and circumstances, I started to wonder if it is all worth it. Was it worth it, I am not ‘popular’ at least I can’t taste it and can’t ‘show’ to the people who put me down, how much I’ve acquired. I was 0 on the radar of materialism. I lived on a budget and lived in a small studio apartment together with my sister. Outside perhaps 0, but inside what a power, which was about to be unleashed.
Still, everyday I questioned everything. What was I thinking? This journey is truly not for the fainthearted. But my spirit animal is a Lion. So I was bound to overcome my challenges. Spiritually I knew that this is just a task I have to go through.
I persevered, then 2015 happened. The year I vowed to become closer to myself. Closer to God. I shook hands with my Destiny and things started to shift, tables started to turn. It became visible. My power from inside which was growing became visible on the outside.
Today I am in a beautiful apartment. But ofcourse I will never forget the other apartment, it was thanks to that blessed apartment that I have received immense growth, it’s the reason for my present success. If it wasn’t for that period, I wouldn’t be here. It would have been to easy and I would still be the same person.
I have more purchasing power, but more importantly I am able to invest in something bigger, something that me and my sister have envisioned.
Materialism becomes small when it comes to self growth. To each it’s own. Understand this, when I had materialism I was being judged of being ‘privileged’, and going for my dream, I’m still being judged. Meaning, I can never please someone.
I am absolutely happy with what I have, self growth has already gathered me everything what I wanted financially. Living at the most expensive city in the world, I am grateful for this.
I also realize, it’s that I have everything, I should be humble. So I am slowly going on the path of being humble more and more. The need of showing disappears, because God has granted me everything. And the brain he bestowed on me, can be used for something bigger. Connected with the universe. Amen.
