The lessons I learned Before Walking The Road of Financial Freedom Lifestyle
This is part of Muriël’s Story 🙂
Before you will be able to understand my core Why
of taking the path of an entrepreneur,
I have to share the lessons I learned before walking the road of financial
Here and Now
You probably saw Dirk and I with smiley pictures and positive messages all over the internet: In blogs, video’s, Hangouts, Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook…
And maybe you wander what this ‘’internet marketing-system’’ is that we‘ve been busy with.
And how it transformed our minds and creates our Freedom Lifestyle?
I will explain that later on.
People who know us for a while are familiar with ”the hard working couple Dirk & Muriël”
who have kids,
own a restaurant, and hit bankruptcy 2 years ago
but have a good healthy life with nothing to complain about…..
Before you will be able to understand my core Why
of taking the path of an entrepreneur and Internet marketing,
I have to share my personal story here with you.
This is my story.
My life was not always happy and smiley and making fun!
I remember many worries and tears in my childhood as the only child of two warm & loving parents.
This came together with having loads of friends and a nice school.
But my mom suffered from a mental illness.
From time to time she had serious deep depressions.
Now we would call them manic depressions,
but that diagnose was never given that time (80ties).
In between she was happy and optimistic and the fun and loving mom a child needs.
But her depressions also created a huge pressure on the marriage of my mom and dad.
So I also remembered 2 loving parents who could not live with or without each other.
And I was scared that they would divorce or that they would keep on living unhappy together….
Those depressions filled my early memories with fear to lose my mom.
And it was scary for me to see her change from time to time from an energetic and optimistic mom, to a scared, crying and desperate mom.
I also remember my early wish to make her happy and give her pep talks when she didn’t see the purpose of living.
Fortunately she was a very warm and tender mom in between the depressions.
& My great caring and steady dad was as the core power source of our family.
And so we were also a unit of 3 happy people living many happy times that lasted for years, until I was about 15 years old. Then her depressions became stronger than ever.
Years later I understood that before I was 15 years old, my dad always protected me from fearful situations because she also was suicidal that period. But I didn’t know that at that time.
Some years ago he told me that he always checked the basement before I came home from school putting my bike in there.
He was afraid that she might hang herself and that I would find her there hanging.
I am sure that having adult sorrows as a child, people grow up fast and develop life wisdom.
So that might explain that my wish to start my own life as an adult, started when I was about 16 years old. Just wanted to live in a peaceful home, without sorrows.
When I was about 15 years old the depressions of my mom became worse.
After a few heavy periods of ups and downs, she tried to kill herself with pills when I was about 17 years old.
She was brought to hospital and was saved.
Then she became hospitalized in a mental hospital.
I cannot remember her being really happy since that time. Although she tried to make the best out of life, she never became the happy mom I also remembered.
Finally her wish to end her life was stronger than her wish to live.
She ended her life jumping before a train in 1991.
I was 19 years old. My father lost the love of his life.
It might sound strange but I was happy that her suffering was over.
I knew it was her wish and I respected that. Her death was planned very precisely by her.
For years I worked on my way of dealing with my loss and emotions.
Grief, anger, guild, doubt and respect for her decision are not an easy combination to make for a young adult.
Luckily I am born with a never ever dying optimistic state of mind with lot to wish for.
When I was about 11 years old, my schoolteacher gave me a special grade for being a positive and smiley child, isn’t that a fun anecdote in the middle a serious black story?
Right after my mom died I already realized that dealing with her traumatic death would give me life experience that’s the fundament of my future me.
Somebody with a story and some kind of wisdom.
Although that time I didn’t realize exactly how that ‘’wisdom’’ would look like or feel like.
Now I do know.
My mom committing suicide created my happy path of life that I am on right now!
Because I decided to live my life to the max!
Because I’m very aware of how precious life is. And I ‘m thankful for that gift of life.
Vipassana Meditation taught me ‘’Anicha’’, that means everything comes and goes.
So why not living a life I desire, now I’m in the power center of my life, I wandered? Why not inspiring others by sharing my story? What do I have to lose, I have so much to gain!
My desire is to be free and
-Helping others with changing their believe system and teach them how to work a 4 hour workweek too, making a passive income online too!
-Travel the world with my husband (also love of my life and business partner) Dirk and our 2 kids, showing them things they do not learn in school
-Work my own times and make a huge passive income online thanks to online marketing and the system that we are plugged in.
Instead of the nine to five and missing out time with our kids and earn a minimal of income trading time for money
-Having all the time in the world to do things I feel passionate about in staid of waiting until I’m I’m 67 years old !
-Stop living from paycheck to paycheck
-Stop hoping the restaurant will be busy enough for paying off our 300K of debts for the rest of our lives
-Never stop thinking dreams come true.
The Law of Attraction is my true belief.
I believe that all things start with a thought.
So therefore I see myself responsible for my own happiness.
No matter what problems I had to deal with in life!
Now I shared my story and my core Why walking the path of an entrepreneur!
To be honest, I’m not scared any more to share it, just relief ! I have nothing to hide!
If there’s only 1 other person out there who get’s inspired by my story, I’m happy 🙂
