WE'D HAD ENOUGH
Best-selling authors, TV & Media personalities it seemed that happiness was always 'just around the corner'. One more achievement, one more deal, a little more money. We had spent 15 years pursuing 'meaning' and 'happiness' through Goals, Fame, Self Improvement, The high life & hard work - and it seemed the more we 'got', the more we realized...... "THIS ISN'T IT!".
THE RADICAL RE-BOOT
SO WE DECIDED TO TURN LIFE UPSIDE DOWN
We put a clip on YouTube and 64,000 emails and 12,000,000 hits later we had given away EVERYTHING we owned to people in need.
Our cars, clothing, jewelry, furniture, electronics and 3 businesses et all.
(NOTE:- We do not necessarily recommend this action to find your Flow, it's just what we felt inspired to do at the time)
CRAZY? Perhaps. But it was our first real lesson in FAITH & following our intuition, all in, NO excuses, NO second guessing, NO chickening out.
All we knew was LIFE WAS NOT WORKING. So we embarked on a soul-searching ADVENTURE to live by 'faith' and seek out people who had the secret to life.
We wanted to find out what was TRUTH. Did the 'UNIVERSE' REALLY PROVIDE? Was faith real? Was there a better way to do life & was GOD REAL?
Without realizing it, we stepped into what we now know as OUR Flow.
It was increadible. We met amazing people. Experienced amazing things. it was Scary, Uncomfortable, Humbling, Exhilarating, Shocking, Challenging, Freeing, Uplifting, &
THE BEST THING WE EVER DID
BIG QUESTIONS WE ASKED
There must be more to my life, right ?
How can I feel truly happy & fulfilled ?
Why is nothing else really working ?
How do I live AUTHENTICALLY ?
Our Experiment to Test a Theory - Giving it All Away
Something is VERY WRONG!
87% say they are dissatisfied or worried about life
1 in 2 Divorce rate
1 in 10 people have depression. Increasing by 20% a year
90% of people dont like their jobs or are dissoiated (Forbes)
$20 Billion a year spent looking for answers to life, anxiety, depression, discontent, emotional issues and associated illnesses
SO WHAT DID WE REALLY WANT?
To feel utterly fulfilled and in love with our life not because of an achievement, bank balance or reason, BUT JUST BECAUSE!
To not let fear, worry or stress dictate our actions or quality of life
To feel real purpose, love deeply and make a difference
To not be afraid of failure, judgment & other's opinions
To be 100% AUTHENTIC
My 3 kids were a huge driving force behind our decision.
As parents we want the best for our children.
We think we are doing the right thing focusing them on study,
getting a good job, making money and a strong work ethic.
This is important BUT are we really preparing them for life?
Or are we just sending them down the same old road we went, hoping they will have a better result.
THE INCONVENIENT TRUTH WAS......
If I wanted my kids to have a Happy,
Authentic, Fulfilling Life I better
learn how to live one myself
