Part 3: Is a showcase of families and individuals and their amazing stories who despite their own set of challenges, left their conventional lives behind to live a life of travel and exploration.
Location Independent Lifestyle
Wouldn’t it be great to pack up and leave the confines of your everyday life for a few months even a few years to explore the world or live abroad?
Wouldn’t it also be great to have a job that not only supported that lifestyle but that you could do from anywhere in the world?
Can’t you just picture it? Travelling to exotic places, living in France for a year, slow travelling through Asia or just travelling 2 or 3 months out of the year instead of a measly one or two week?
If you could do all that than you would be leading a “location independent lifestyle”
So……What’s stopping you?
Is it lack of Money?
Is it that you have a Family and kids?
Do you have too many bills a big mortgage?
Is it fear?
Is it your job?
No More Excuses
The fact of the matter is, it’s never been easier to live a location independent lifestyle.
Thousands of people are doing it, have done it and thousands more will do it in the future. These people are not smarter, richer or more adventurous than you. They’re not all young and carefree and they’re not hippies who couldn’t cut it in the real world either.
In fact, many of the people who choose to live a location independent lifestyle are a lot like you with similar circumstances, backgrounds may even share some of the same obstacles that you face in your own life.
So what’s their secret?
If they’re just like you and have similar circumstances what makes it possible for them to achieve their dream while others only dream about it?
3 simple things separate dreamers vs. doers. Pay close attention because these three things transcend to anything in your life.
Did you year that?
That’s it..Without these three things you will never achieve your goal of long term travel or location independence. NEVER! If you know different than please feel free to prove me wrong by leaving a comment below.
In the mean time let me break it down for you.
There is a HUGE difference between a wish and a desire. That difference being the quality of the craving or longing. Take for instance these two phrases,
1- “I wish I could live in France” vs.
2- “ I want to live in France”.
The first is a a wish which implies it would be nice to achieve something but not necessary. The second is a desire and it gives a much stronger sense of longing. It’s usually an unsatisfied craving or longing that if not accomplished may lead to regret.
If you really DESIRE to do something than you have to take the first step, an action. ANY ACTION. Without that first step it’s nothing but an empty dream.
Desire and action are a good start but if you don’t have determination to deal with all the challenges, naysayers and unforeseen road blocks, you may feel defeated and stop. Not to mention the fact that it might take you several failed attempts before you succeed.
What Do You WANT?
So…. do you WISH or do you WANT to lead a location independent lifestyle? Are you willing to TAKE ACTION and are you DETERMINED to follow through?
