If you had told me at the beginning of 2017 that I would become friends with two people in the public eye who I admire immensely, that I would be offered a chance to live and work on a tropical island, that I would have my own blog with hundreds of subscribers, and that I would be involved in an opportunity that could set me up financially for life, I would have asked what drugs you were taking! Little did I realise the surprises that awaited me in 2017!
In my 3 Part series earlier this year, I wrote about my first ever experience of getting my fortune read by a psychic. If you’d told me even 1 year beforehand that I would be going to a seer, I would have had the men in white coats around faster than you could say “BULLSHIT!!”. But following my year of awakening, I now felt that ANYTHING was possible.
So I thought I’d give it a try. Partly for fun. Partly because I was in a tough place. After a full year of endless, daily self-development work, massive highs, soul-destroying lows, I emerged as a totally new Tim inside – but my outer world had not budged. Still skint. Still lonely. Still unhappy.
Over the past year and a half, I’ve dedicated my entire life to learning about becoming a better person and creating a better life. Perhaps the biggest aspect of this was getting the law of attraction working in my favour. I’m at a place where I am now starting to attract people, opportunities and incredible “coincidences” on a pretty regular basis. But the one area where I’ve still yet to attract any real abundance, is financially.
I realise that this has much to do with the fact that my biggest mental blocks and limiting beliefs remain money-related – almost entirely in fact! I honestly don’t think I have ANY serious limiting beliefs remaining about anything else. But I know money is still an issue. It still plagues me, the worry and anxiety about not having enough money to do what I want in life.
I’ve mentioned many times on the blog that spoken affirmations are one of the keys to getting me through some tough times and building good new mental habits. They are now part of my daily routine and something I never forget to do.
At first, affirmations can seem pointless. I totally get why people give up on them after a short time! When I first began doing them last year, it at times felt ridiculous. I’d be telling myself that I’m “Wealthy and abundant,” yet my soul is screaming “You’re fucking broke AND in debt, are you insane, don’t be so stupid!!”
If I was to give one book to all the people in the world who want to make big changes in their life, this would be it. Not because it’s the best self-development book I’ve read. “Think and Grow Rich” remains the granddaddy for me (in fact, it is even mentioned in THIS book!). Not because it’s had the biggest impact on my life; “The Power of Now” and “Conversations With God” both switched on lightbulbs within me that this one never did. The reason I would choose it is because out of all those books, this is the easiest to digest. Read more
I wasn’t sure if I’d ever make this video public. It was done totally spur of the moment and initially, I recorded purely for myself. I wanted a record of how bad I felt at that moment, so I could remind myself in future, of just how far I’d come. This was made a few weeks ago and I’m happy to say, I’m feeling a lot better now.
The key to getting me through this period in my life without breaking down and sinking into negativity, despair and hopelessness? To continue working on myself DAILY. That means affirmations, meditation, reading, learning, keeping faith in the universe and taking action.
I’ll be talking more about my mediation and affirmation routines soon. For now, here’s the lowest point of my year…..
