Back in 2005 I was a very unhappy person, severely depressed to the point I couldn’t even get out of bed for days at a time.
Suffering from chronic anxiety…And totally lost.
I’d been in a series of painfully failed relationships, a series of failed businesses and to top it all off…I drank too much, too often!
6 months later…I was unrecognisable as a person, enthusiastic about life, positive, excited and happy 🙂
I was in a successful relationship (who is my wife today), in my dream career, finances in the process of being healed, and generally “Loving Life” again.
…And all of this took place with the use of a single pharmaceutical.
People around couldn’t believe the changes they were seeing before their very eyes!
What had happened?
A few months earlier, a house mate who lived with me had seen the state I had fallen into and out of concern…
She brought to me a book, I think it was called “Feel The Pain And Do Away With It”…
…It was a “Self-Help” book, and was my first introduction to the concept that “JUST MAYBE, ”I’m causing my own pain through my poor choice of thoughts.
Over the next 6 months I read over 100 books on the topics of “Personal Development”, “Confidence”. “Self Improvement”, and the idea that it’s my thoughts that are causing my depression, anxiety, unhappiness and general lack of performance in life.
I hired coaches, went to seminars, got involved with my local Church…
