My first contact with his work was in my twenties, which means about 30 years ago. I read several books of him and was inspired to start my own business. Looking back now, reading his books was a major trigger for me to take my own unique path.
My second contact with his work was in my forties, when I was watching YouTube videos as one of my English leaning activities. I was surprised to see him by accident on YouTube because I didn't know his oral presentation of his teachings. Fascinated by his oral presentation I wished someday I would like to be able to understand fully what he was talking in English. I was frustrated by not understanding the language and the frustration became fuel for me to boost my English learning process.
It was around 2008 when I bought his audio program called 'The Secrets to Manifesting Your Destiny', which I have been listening to up until now. At the beginning, I didn't understand most of them but I continued listening. Somehow I felt he was talking about something very important to me. The barriers for me to understand were not only English but also the deep contents themselves.
After listening to the audio program more than one year, I got a strong urge to attend his live event. I bought a ticket, which costed me about $500 for the event while my flight and accommodation costed me $1500 or so. "Am I crazy?", I thought. This move was something I had never done before. But I was excited to know that it was possible for me unless I denied it myself.
I didn't know at that time but now it is very clear to me that this trip was the very first trip I took to expand my life. My journey started here and I am very glad to take the leap.
