From Hardship…

From Hardship to Happiness: How I moved myself from poverty to relative success without pissing anybody off.

I grew up in a low-income household in the UK, most of my family relied benefits. So I know what financial hardship looked like. Free School dinners, second hand clothes. Etc etc, but I was sure I could create a better life for myself.

When I was a mid thirties adult I began practicing meditation and some years later, journaling.

Taking time for self-reflection allowed me to deal with stress and clarify values and set goals.

Meditation improved my focus and emotional resilience. Journaling enabled me to work through challenging emotions and chart a course for personal growth.

To gain practical skills, I took advantage of free online education resources. I studied digital marketing, sales techniques, and business strategies. The knowledge I gained online helped me land good contracts and influence.

I also made nurturing relationships a priority. I joined local organisations to connect with others who had similar interests and aspirations.

The social bonds he formed provided invaluable support.

With self-knowledge, practical skills and strong relationships. I was able to gain financial independence and success (still not sure how that is defined). I advanced from low-wage jobs to my his own profitable company twice in a decade.
