I lost my money the first time at the age of 26. And then I lost it again at the age of 38.
The first time I lost al my money I remember I only had some coins left, now the second time was a lot more devastating because I had, as I normally say, I tasted wealth. I had managed to achieve things and I had the houses, the cars and everything. And that devastated me because I literally had nothing and everything that was around me was disappearing as we spoke.
And I hit rock, rock, rock bottom.
And it was only because I was already kind of in the training I was able to kind of deal with it in a much better, smarter way than I probably would have dealt with it if it would have caught me without that training.
And there was this time, this moment when I wanted to do something completely different, which was getting into personal development as far as running events. And I remember sharing this with my wife at a time where I was saying to her, I said, “Well, I want to do this.” And she said, “Are you sure?” And I said, “Well, yeah, because if it’s not me then who? Someone else is going to do it. And if not now, then when? When am I going to do it?”
So that was it. I jumped, I took the opportunity and it was a very, very difficult time after that as well because I was commuting backwards and forwards to London for three, four years, from Spain to London, London to Spain. So it was Monday to Thursday and then pretty much in two or three weeks. So I missed a lot of valuable time, beautiful time with my family, and time that I’ll never get back. But I did it because I had to do it because I felt I had to provide my family with what they needed, but I also did it because I wanted to reinvent myself and I wanted to bring and do more in life. And I think as I said, out of every adversity comes an equal or greater opportunity. And that’s what I believe.
