A recent hospitalisation had me questioning the power of the mind. Why couldn’t I recreate the healing I’d read about in books, instead of having to crawl on the floor because my body’s lack of balance was causing nauseous? I had a new appreciation for my inner ear and decided to listen to my body. So I slept days and nights, remembering the saying “Some people spend their health building wealth only to have to spend their wealth regaining their health.”
While this wasn’t me, I did have time to think about the small business that I thought might become big business. Yes I want to make the world a much better place. Yes I want to provide jobs and see people financially independent, without concern for food security. But where do you draw the line? Think about where you would draw the line if suddenly you couldn’t work. Would you forgo the new TV or holiday? Would you do a budget and look at your financial affairs? So what’s stopping you from doing that now? Indeed look at these questions now and realise that your wealth is all about what’s on the inside. When you cultivate this internal wealth, your financial affairs improve because you don’t waste money on unnecessary purchases. You already love life, needing little else.
PS Thank you to my father who bought the prescribed drugs needed when I wished I was unconscious. May no-one ever have what I did (still undiagnosed but now at least, no more than a memory).
