I went from earning $250 a week to $2,000 a week within 6 months. Not only that, I loved New Zealand and, although I only went for a four and a half month working holiday, I stayed for 8 years and became a Kiwi – as New Zealand citizens are known. I became famous writing a magazine column for the most popular women’s magazine in the country and eventually also became a very successful radio clairvoyant. It was a win-win situation for me all around. However, try telling me that at the airport in Brisbane, Australia, as I sat waiting for the plane to take me to New Zealand and remembering what had happened the month before. I addition, all my friends tried to dissuade me from going with their negative comments and their fears for me.
I, of course, (whose Self did not want to go) took these comments on board and, to be honest, I almost cancelled the trip. It was my then-business partner (whom I later married) who basically forced us to go. My then-husband also forced me to go as he sold all of my belongings in a garage sale and then took all of the money out of the bank. I have said many times that I called and thanked him later on for doing that for me. He changed my life, and I would not be where I am today if he had not done what he did. It seemed terribly awful at the time. Why was this happening? But it was the best thing I had ever done and I had him to thank for it. He forced me to leave and begin the new life that has brought me here to where I am today! We often cannot see what the outcome will be, but in our minds it is always negative.
