I got the attention of family and friends when they started seeing amazing unexplainable manifestations happening in my life. One such instance was when we were in the peak of high financial expenses raising a family and I realized we were not able to save any money for retirement. I wasdetermined that I would find someone that could assist me in achieving my goal. I read an article in the financial section of the newspaper that was written by a financial planner. I thought it was someone from New York so I wrote a letter to him asking him for advice. A week later he called and talked with me for a half hour giving me professional guidance. Before hanging up I asked him if he knew anyone in the New Orleans area with whom could meet. He informed me that his office was in New Orleans. The next week Jeanne and I
were sitting in his office. With his guidance we were able to turn a financial crisis into financial abundance. Once you know where you want to go to achieve the success you want in life the people will show up to help you achieve your goals.
In my career when marketing a product that could be purchased from all of the competitors for the same price I knew I had to come up with a different strategy for winning over customers. I developed a program on Creative Marketing offering customers workshops for their customers to receive continual education credits. This program motivated my customers to contact me and set up meetings. In appreciation of my efforts to fortify and increase their business they increased the volume of their purchases with me. I became so excited with the results I was getting that in January I wrote down in my journal that I wanted to go to Switzerland to present this program to the international management team of executives. In the fall of that year I
received a call from the Vice President of the company inviting Jeanne and me to travel first class with him to Switzerland to present my ideas on Creative Marketing to the international management team.
In the early years of our marriage we were blessed to go on a pilgrimage to Lourdes and always wanted to go back again. I wrote in my journal that year that I wanted to experience a surprise trip to Europe to include going back to Lourdes. Later that year a friend told us he wanted to pay for us to go to Europe to include Lourdes. On just an ordinary weekday evening this friend came over with an envelope to give to me. Coincidentally our son-in-law had stopped by our house. When our friend left my son-in-law was still there. I opened the envelope and it had $5,000 in cash in it to cover the cost of the trip. I will never forget the look on my son-in-law’s face in disbelief. How did
this happen? Well I just told him you have to put what you want out there to attract it to you.
There are a few excuses many will use not to create a life of abundance for themselves. They will say these things are coincidental and they may have happened for me but they will not happen for most people. Others may say it would take too much effort to change the things I need to change in my life. Some people are so addicted to the negative energy from the media news they begin to believe it is impossible to create positive change and create a life of abundance.
For those ready to bring about positive change in their thinking and committed to do the work necessary to create abundance you may want to follow up on the postings of Positive Pops.
