Hi guys, I hope you have all been well. Thank you all for your ongoing support and patience. Today I’d like to talk about my life’s meaning.
For about 4 months I was scratching my head daily asking myself, what am I here to do. On this planet. So of course I kept listening to my motivational videos and one guy said to spend 20 minutes in the morning in deep thought and ask those questions.
So every morning I woke up and asked the universe or god. Whatever it is you believe. But I just flat out asked. What am I on earth for? What am I supposed to do?
For a while I got no answers that I liked and one morning I had a thought. It was like a whisper. You need to focus on your kids. That voice got louder every day.
So I started spending a lot more time with them. I started reading occupational therapy books and speech therapy books and tried to learn as much as I could about how I can help them.
You see when I found out about my daughters diagnosis. I broke in a way I can’t describe. I went really bad for a while and then one day I got that angry I decided to turn my pain around and use that energy rather than let it use me.
I’ve said it before. I had read 1 maybe 2 books in my whole life before this point. Since then I have read atleast 50 books. Just 40 minutes per day. In 2 years from now that will be 100 books. Every book I read I learn more and more and become more aware.
Don’t get me wrong. I’ve had my bad days and weeks but I then try to get back up. I just keep plugging away at it. Going forward I’d like too share in my blogs some of the books I’ve read and what I’ve learnt from them.
But going back to my kids. The relationship I have with them now is unbelievable. My baby girl adores me and I love her and my son so much and I’m sure most parents understand what I mean. She is still non verbal but lately I’ve noticed it sounds like she’s trying to talk. That gives me so much hope.
I now truly believe she will one day, hopefully soon start talking. My daughter is 5 and a half and my son just had his 18th birthday and I’m so proud of him. At his age I was a complete stuff up. I look at him and am so proud of the young man he is. He is a truly good person. He has a great soul.
Guys if you have any good book recommendations that you’d like to tell me about can you please post it in the comments below. I’m always looking for new good books to help me improve everyday.
Also if you have any questions please feel free to ask. Thank you so much for your time and please stay safe.
Hi guys, you have probably wandered where I have been and what’s happened. But I decided to have a break and go on a bit of a spiritual Journey of my own. Personally I think it’s important to do this from time to time. That’s my opinion anyway.
My spiritual Journey had more do with the questions. Why am I here on earth. What do you want me to do? What is my purpose in life. Now I know I’m going to help a lot of people turn there pain or trauma around and be the best version of themselves.
I have read a lot more books. One was mans search for meaning. Great book. Actually one of the best books I’ve read. I will apologise for stopping my blogging but I needed that time to answer the above questions.
I will keep blogging now going forward but I just needed that time. The best thing I should have done was thank you all for your support and let you guys know that I was going on that spiritual break so I apologise for that too. I’m still learming
3 years ago I was homeless and now I’m doing really well and going forward I’d like to share what I’ve learnt from a different vantage point. One of them is patience.
I started asking those questions above every morning but I needed time and patience because you don’t get the answers straight away. You have to be patient. And it’s an inner voice you hear and it’s almost like a whisper. Like I said I’ll go more into detail in the following blogs.
This is just a blog to say sorry and thank you for all your support in the past and I hope to share my ideas with you guys going forward and talking about ideas.
Thanks again guys and I’ll start my blog posts going forward very soon. I’m working on my next one now and when it’s done I’ll publish it straight away.
Thanks again and stay safe guys. Take care for now 😊.
Thank you for reading all my previous posts guys and thank you for following me. As you have read, I am studying some of the Universal Laws and will be sharing what I’ve learnt in upcoming posts.
Today I’m going to post about the Law Of Compensation. This Law is the same with every person, every time. It’s like the law of gravity. In fact all these laws I write about are all Laws of the Universe and they work for every person, every time.
The Law Of Compensation states 3 points. The amount of money you earn. Is always in direct ratio too:
1. The need for what you do
2. Your Ability to do it.
3. The difficulty there is in replacing you.
Let’s break this down.
1. The need for what you do. I believe there is a need for what you do. What you do in your day jobs is a need. That’s why you have the job. For example, I’m an electrician. There is a need for electricians. Now some jobs pay more than other jobs based on the need for what the job requires. For example. If you work as a general labourer you will get paid a lot less than what a doctor would. As there are more people that can be a labourer than there are people that can be doctors. These are just examples.
2. Your Ability to do it. Most people learn how to do a job, then get comfortable and don’t improve from there. Earl Nightingale said “if you study 1 extra hour in your chosen field within 3 years you will be at the top of your field. In 5 years you will be a national Expert.
3. So point 2 takes care of point 3. Because if you are at the top of your field or become a national expert. You will become very hard to replace. Unless you don’t improve and then you will be easier to replace.
Think about the professional basketball player. See there are the players that are just good enough to make it. They get paid well as there is a greater need for what they do because people love watching basketball. However they can be replaced easier than a player like Michael Jordan. Now think of a player like Michael Jordan. He gets paid millions more than the average basketball player because he kept improving. He did more training than the average player did. Therefore got paid extremely well and was very hard to replace.
Let’s look at it another way, your a general labourer. There isn’t a great need for general labourers as more people can do it. There’s a need for that job but not a great need. your not the best labourer in fact your quite lazy and you don’t improve with learning. Then you will be very easy to replace.
Let’s flip that around again. Your a general labourer. You work for 5 different jobs over the next 5 years. First job, learn how to build fences. Second job, learn how to aluminium window and door frames. Third job, learn how to do flooring. Fourth job, learn how to tile roofs. Fifth job learn how to be a plaster or painter. You see then you can start a sole trailer business and with all those people you did work for in the past you can charge out a good rate and they know your a hard worker and your good at what you do. You will become valuable to all of them and you can make more money. These are just examples guys. Think outside the box.
Like I said before, I’m an electrician. I get paid more than the general labourer because there is a higher need for electricians than there are with labourers. I don’t want to be at the top of my field or an expert but I do want to get better as it’s my day job and keeps the roof over my families head and feeds them. So I do about 30 mins study per day on electrical. So everyday I’m getting a little bit better. I will be harder and harder to replace as I get better and better. Also as I get better I get more job offers and can charge a higher rate.
However I have a massive passion for helping people. I think there is a great need out the there for helping people. So that’s where I study a minimum of 1 hour per day. I’m constantly getting better and I have helped a lot of people along the way. Because later in life I want to be an expert on helping people and that’s what I want to do as a profession. I believe once I become an expert I can make 5 to 10 times the amount of money I earn as an electrician.
I’m constantly studying self help books and doing courses. I even did a life coaching course. I am not a life coach but that money I spent on that course has helped me massively. Now I have a better ability to help people. I am fascinated with helping people. The feeling I get from helping somebody is amazing. Every time I help somebody I feel more and more fulfilled.
I read somewhere that your gift will make room for you. I have a gift of care and empathy. That is my gift and that’s why I feel so good inside when I help people. I don’t get paid to help people but I believe one day when I become an expert at helping others. I will get paid to do it. Therefore very hard to replace too. In saying that. This is something I want to talk about in a later blog. Instant gratification versus delayed gratification.
So my suggestion is this. If you love your job that you already do then do an hour of study around that subject every day or every night. I suggest doing it, first thing in the morning before work as that’s when your subconscious mind is most impressionable. If you don’t like what your doing then change the course of your life. Think about what you would love to do. Try to get a job doing that and if you can’t yet then do some courses and study an hour per day on that subject and in time you will find yourself doing what you love.
In fact if you were to do that. In a few months of working towards your intended dream job or business or whatever you’d love to do. Then you will start feeling amazing inside because your growing and working towards something that means a lot to you and you will start feeling amazing. Then those dreaded Sunday Nights before going to work on Monday will not be as bad.
Thank you again for reading my post. I am very grateful and I hope you’ve learnt something from this post. Feel free to leave any comments or questions below and I will do my best to answer you. Thank you.
Hi I’m Jamie, I want to talk a bit about myself and the the power you can get from recycling your pain or trauma. I’ve had two extremely traumatic events happen in my life. The first one was 16 years ago. That trauma was finding out my son had cerebral palsy. Now if my son reads this I want him to know that the depression I had through this time was not his fault. It was because I wished I could have his disability; for me to have it instead. I actually remember getting off the bus after work one day and I looked up to the sky and said “God please take his disability away from him and give it to me instead.” It got me into a massive depression and I had 16 years of losing jobs. Being stuck in bed for weeks at a time and it broke me. I felt so down I didn’t want to live anymore at times. And yes I contemplated taking my life many times. As time went on it got a bit easier to deal with and then I started feeling better. Then I had another traumatic event that literally broke me in a way that I can’t explain. My daughter was diagnosed with severe Level 3 Autism, completely non-verbal. I then became homeless and three days after I felt that pain, I had this feeling in my gut that I cannot explain. I think it was a higher power telling me to get up. That day was June 15 2018. That day I turned my pain into this extreme determination to transform my life. Since then I went from homeless and back to winning my family back; my wife and daughter. At the time I was doing a job I hated, it was minimum wage and I was always broke. I am a qualified electrician and had left the industry for five years. Using the power of that pain I made a DECISION to go back and work as an Electrician. Before that I always wanted to do that but was too petrified to do it. After making that decision I found a job as an electrician, failed straight away and felt down for a few days. Then I thought of WHY I was doing this and tried again and have successfully worked as an electrician since then and now I feel very comfortable working as an electrician. In later blogs I want to explain the power of your WHY. I will post more blogs around this subject as I genuinely want to help as many people as I can to recycle their pain and harness it to take them to a level in their life where they feel amazing again. I see so much pain out there and I want to help. If I can help even one person from my blogs then I will be very happy. I also want to note that I’ve never written anything before, blogs included so this is a first for me so please bare with me as I will not be the most professional blogger. I’ll always speak from my heart. Take care for now and I hope you read my next blog.
