If you’re listening to me on audio only, you can probably hear a running water behind me and that’s only because I’m right by the river. This is a river my wife and I take our son down to almost daily. Each and every day, we’re able to walk down here, enjoy the sun, enjoy nature and we’re able to do it almost any time that we want to.
The reason I bring this up is I just got a call from somebody who actually friended me on LinkedIn and had a question for me. Now, what this question was, was how do you get this lifestyle you have? He told me his backstory. He has a master’s degree. He’s actually running several businesses and here he is at the stage in his life where he wants to be able to travel, move somewhere else with his family but he can’t. At least that’s what he thinks.
He thinks he can’t do it. He thinks that he can’t actually uproot and change things. From his mindset and his mindset when we talked, he actually felt like he is at a certain stage of life where this actual change can’t actually happen, and that’s not true. Back in 2007 as I talked about, I started my journey, my own Author of Your Own Story journey which led me to the place I am today where my wife and I can work and live and play anywhere in the world we want to and that’s where I want for you.
That’s my story. That was also this person’s story as well, and the difference is, this person didn’t follow through. They waited. Now, 30 years later, they still have the same dream and yet now they feel stuck. Their story had changed. Their story is now a story of impoverishment, of being stuck and not getting what you want. I don’t want that for you.
What I want you to do is grab your journal, grab our five to thrive right here right now and write down what you really want in each category: Your mind, your body, your soul, your relationships, your business. Bonus points, take it another step up and write about what you want in your life. Now, do what most people never do and I know you’re going to be the exception, but do what most people never do and take action. Take action today. I want you living the Author of Your Own Story lifestyle and I want you to have it all, and that is the first step.
That’s it for me today. I’m going to go back and enjoy my family, go play by the river. What I want you to do is simply go over authorofyourownstory.com.
