Trevor Emdon - Happy Ever After! Here I am, a middle-aged man whom you wouldn't particularly notice in a crowd telling you how you can have the three most valued things in life - health, wealth and happiness. Our children's fairy stories all end with, "And they lived happily ever after ..." They never tell us how they paid the bills or who did the washing up! "Happy ever after" is such a blissful phrase and makes life sound like a dream, a utopia. And yet I am living happily ever after as I write. I have a gorgeous wife who is always "sunny side up." I am no athlete, and I confess to only intermittent bouts of exercise. But I am hardly ever ill and I have plenty of energy. As for money, I have more than enough and my personal wealth is increasing almost daily. None of these things came easily to me. I have hacked my way through the jungle of life to find the keys to love and financial well being for sure. Finding my sense of self-worth first which took me until well into my thirties. In the 1980s, NLP training taught me that I could choose my thoughts. Spiritual traditions have the same message. One of the lessons in "A Course In Miracles" simply says, "I can choose peace rather than this." I got that. I can choose anything rather than something that disturbs or hurts me, so why wouldn't I exercise such a choice? Why wouldn't I exercise such power? Why wouldn't anyone? And hence began my journey of change and self discovery, but most of all, to my discovery of the keys to happiness, health and wealth. If you are unhappy on a regular or consistent basis, sooner or later your health will be compromised. As for wealth, whether material or spiritual, it will not cling to you or make you feel good if your general disposition is miserable and negative. My passion for writing comes from a desire to free each spirit to follow his or her own dreams and heart as I yearned to do for much of my early life. The alternative, to not getting this message out, as I see it, is to allow millions of people to continue to live with a fundamental belief in hopelessness. I am blessed with a truly happy life and the gift of being able to express myself in words - both spoken and written. To have not written this book, therefore, would have been unthinkable - and virtually impossible.
