TO MY BEST FRIEND
Well here I am, feeling so liberated and purposeful as I sit on my comfortable leather couch, watching a special on the tv about myself and the highly successful global business I’ve created.
It’s December 2023 and the scene shows me being interviewed, outside on the verandah of our beautiful Basket Range stone and timber holiday home on the river Murray, for the television program, Australian Story. It’s a beautiful warm sunny day and the river is so calm that you can clearly see the reflection of the river gum trees and the sandstone cliffs in the reflection of the water.
I sip on a beautiful cup of Chamomile tea and the scene changes to me and my family, just having returned flying first class from a fulfilling 2-month overseas holiday in Europe and North America. We had such a rewarding time, exploring new places and meeting beautiful people. We also spent much of the time abroad with our enthusiastic international team members, building and fine tuning our business. Having the liberty to plan holidays and events that helps people, only enriches our lives every day.
I did it, I was nominated for Australian of the year, thanks to the unique business concept I created and the skills I’ve learned and persistently practiced along the way. I am recognised for my business, that helps everyday people achieve in life, even when they think they can’t, and also for my contributions to mentoring the underprivileged.
The story reflects my life of hard work, my ups and downs and my burning desire to create success, by helping people in many different ways at little or no cost.
Ninin, my beautiful wife, sits relaxed by my side and lovingly answers questions about our journey together.
“How did you do it?”, I’m asked. What are the reasons you are so successful?
My reply is, “I searched and searched for years because I just had a deep feeling that there was something else, worth striving for. I just had to be open minded, keep searching and keep asking questions. And I found it within myself – my unique gifts that I have to offer the world. I simply focused on helping other people achieving.” I now have the time freedom to help people whenever I choose to. It is such a comfort to know an abundant amount of funds are effortlessly and consistently coming in, on a regular basis to help compensate the people who help me and the new “Helping Others” projects I create all over the world.
One scene shows me eating a healthy tasty breakfast, going for a bike ride and meditating as part of my daily ritual, making me look and feel so focused and healthy.
Now and then, the program switches to my work colleagues and team members, who share their heart felt experiences about the fulfilling work culture I have created. I feel overjoyed with love as I watch the glow of personal growth and achievement on their faces.
The scenes in the program change from one success story to another, the small businesses I have helped make successful, the parents that I have helped reduce their working hours and the underprivileged people Global Heroes has mentored to achieve their true dreams in life.
Our ski boat pulls up to our slow sloping freshly mowed grassed beach area with my eldest son Jackson driving. He has just taken his brother Adam for a wakeboard ride. It’s a week-day, most people are going to work, while we enjoy a loving family day at home.
The program also shows my 3 beautiful kids who are enjoying their own lifestyles and happy doing what they want to do. It makes me so proud as I’ve watched them grow into beautiful human beings.
A scene shows Ninin lovingly cooking one of her beautiful Indonesian meals for our family and friends, instead of doing it for a job, as her catering business is now fully self-sufficient whilst she oversees it. We continue our hands-on help to cook for the homeless and she relishes the spare time she has to work on her personal projects of helping others.
One of the end scenes, entails group videos of our team and business partners from all over the world rejoicing in the work they are doing and the glory of success from helping others.
After the program is aired, it only expands our business growth and the more people we can help.
I feel so grateful to the people who have helped me along the way, the challenges I overcame and the faith I held onto to make this all happen.
