As I sit here watching the spectacular sunset on #sanurbeach, it hit me. June 12, 2016, we are halfway through the year, and I have smashed two of the three heart-pumping, soul inspiring goals I set for myself for this year, on Dec 31, 2015 …
This year is all about exchanging my tolerable and comfortable existence, doing something unfulfilling, for a life that excites me. The plan was to completely re-engineer my lifestyle and create freedom of time and place.
GOAL 1. To Move To Another Country For A Year.
GOAL 2. To Create An Online Business To Serve Others.
F*CK YES! ! I’ve done it. I’ve A C T U A L L Y done it.
Day 12 of my new life in Bali, and it is still all too surreal. I have found my groove here all too quickly that the nightmare that was the last 7 months in getting here, seem to shadow the fact I turned my vision into reality.
When I left Australia, there were still things to pack away, still paperwork to take care of, still friends to say goodbye to, and still tasks I could have done.
But for all of the most important things, the timing always sucks. Waiting for a good time to quit your job? The stars will never align and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time.
The universe doesn’t conspire against you, nor does it go out of it’s way to line up all the pins. “Someday” is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If it’s important to you and you want to do it “eventually,” just do it and correct course along the way.
“If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is, too. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think.” – Timothy Ferris
So for me, it’s time to knuckle down on goal number 3. And it’s a ripper! For me, it scares the living daylights out of me and will require far more commitment than the first two goals combined. But you know what, I’m ready to smash it 🙂
I’d love for you to share with me, did you set yourself any life-changing goals for 2016?
And how are you going with them?
