Good Day’ James Spurway here, as you can guess I am from Downunder …a Life Entrepreneur, Father, Husband, Son and Friend.
I love Nature and the Freedom Lifestyle. My Life was not always like this, Born in Australia on a Farm, with five other siblings and Parents who hold down the farm life and additional 2-3 Jobs to make a few bucks that kept us alive just enough not to starve. Boy Life was hard for my parents and us Kids. Went to Southeast Asia in 1991 and met my Wife Sylvia and eight months later my Father died. In 1993 we got married. We have one Son, and he is a total joy.
In 2004 I had a Syncope that is the term when the Heart and Brain are not working together. I went into a Coma and had to be brought back to life at least four times in one hour. All the Doctors and Nurses who saved my life, deserve a big Thank you and I have to say I am so grateful for it that I made it. I stayed in intensive care for nearly two weeks until my wife decided with the Doctors I am going to get a pacemaker.
Yes, you heart right with 44 years, I got my first pacemaker. Believe me; my life has changed since that time drastically. Being so close to death, re-living your “Movie of Life” in a short period, I promised myself to cherish and honour my life and family.
I left my 9 to 5 job and started a new Business. I struggled, and Life took a hard hit on me. Well, what does not kill you just makes you stronger my wife used to say.
The sun started shining more bright than ever after three years of struggle, and I finally started to make Money.
First, a bit than a bit more and eventually Money poured into our life. We became financially free.
Hey, Money did not go into my head, we still live a healthy life, enjoy simple things, and I always like to hang out with the guys and watch football and rugby. What we have is more than money, Abundance comes in many ways. When you are younger you look only for money; when life changes and you get older, you strive for your number one goal “Health” number two goal ” Happiness” number three goal is “Wealth.” Health plus Wealth equals Happiness.
I love the saying from the Dalai Lama “
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered “Man.
Because he sacrifices his health to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
Again then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present:
the result being Man does not live in the present or the future;
Man lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never lived.”
PS: It still feels like heaven, when I smell the scent of fresh cut grass, and still love my wife’s cooking especially the cakes she bakes.
