   The Reason You Are On Earth

 “Happiness is the meaning and purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.”


(Ancient Greek philosopher, scientist, physician, 384–322 BC)

You do have a purpose here. Actually you have several purposes. You have come to Earth to experience life on this planet, and your main purposes are to achieve a continuous state of happiness and to expand your wisdom. It’s true, you’re meant to be happy! This is what we mean by evolving or growing. Another purpose for being on Earth, as mentioned earlier, is to create new experiences. These urgings come from your soul – it knows what’s good for you. Think about it – when you want something and get it, it means you’ll have a new experience. In other words, it doesn’t make sense that you’d be yearning for aspects of your life that you’ve already got or always had.

The springboard to taking action and using the opportunities presented to you by your soul starts with learning to love yourself and being willing to learn about both yourself and life in general. You are unlikely to get what you truly want without continually adding to your knowledge and taking steps to increase your love for yourself. This is because if you are stuck in a repetitive, unloving, frustrating life relying on the same knowledge you’ve had for years, the body can trick you into wanting things that are empty for you, that will feel good for only five minutes. The body doesn’t listen to the soul – you do. You need to wake up and live life to the full. It’s a magical life out there, so go out and get it. This is all explained in the pages that follow…”

Can you get what you want and have a happy life? Absolutely! All you need to know is how. It is simple and anyone can do it. This book is the secret to discovering your purposes in life and getting what you want: Just Like That ! How to Get Anything You Want
