Hi and Welcome to Living the Good Life and how do you do this.
What are you looking for? Job satisfaction, a new career, to become financially independent, feel more confident, do something that scares you, travel……. The list is unending and in this article, I want to share what I have learned through my life.
The choice is yours – sound real
Living the good life– What does mean for you and is it even possible today. Working long hours, paying high prices, supporting loved ones, Bills, bills and more bills. Doesn’t sound very real to me.
It can be if you make good choices for yourself and making excuses means you want to stay the same.
I have coached people who say to me, I haven’t got time, I’m too tired, I haven’t got the money and a whole lot more reasons not to change and those who say, Yes, I can do this and when it comes to the crunch, they make excuses too.
We all get stuck in places, doing the same thing day after day and go nowhere. Living life feeling as if,”this is it” and accepting a mundane life.
Then there are those who want to live the good life but are not sure how to start and this happens to a lot of people.
Has it happened to you or are you content with just ticking along life’s path doing what you are doing? If you answered Yes to that question, this site is probably not for you.
I want to work with people who know that can do something better with their lives, have adventures by living the good life.
Living life on your terms with time freedom, money to do whatever you like or whatever you and your family like. Yes, I’m talking about true freedom.
Is this you? Great, welcome now let’s keep going.
Shampoo – your mind
From the time you were a child, your mind has been conditioned, by your parents, your peers, friends, teachers, work colleagues, family members and the list goes on.
So by the time we are young adults we have been conditioned to think a certain way, act a certain way and often because of conditioning we accept mediocre as ok.
It’s time to shampoo your mind and ask yourself this.
” If you could do anything and knew you couldn’t fail what would you do?”
The big question I know. Get some paper and start writing all the things you might like to do and just keep writing and you see. ideas will flow but you have to start to do it now, then come back and I’ll be here waiting.
Small steps – great gains
Great you have your list. Add to it anytime. Keep it with you and write things down when they come to mind.
This might seem like a small step but you are on your way to great gains if you do this.
What this list does is help your mind see outside what you perceive as normal, and helps you see and feel what it will be like when you start making changes for you.
Border Bullies – walk away
When I was young all I wanted to do was become a singer. I started playing the guitar at age 8 and sang every chance I got. When I was at College, I was asked by one of the teachers, what I was going to be when I grew up and I answered.
“A singer”. My teacher very quickly said I was wasting my parent’s money and the teachers time and should stop being ridiculous and choose a proper career. Wow!!! I couldn’t believe what she had said.
Then when I was 25, I became a professional country rock singer and I remember one of my friends say. “when are you going to get a real job?”
Again I couldn’t believe what she said. I continued with my career as a singer for 23 years and throughout those years, I practised every day, wrote songs, did recording, marketed my music and lived life on my terms.
The 2 people who spoke like they did were what I called border bullies. They were doing the same thing day in day out and they wanted me to stay in the land of familiar.
I think their minds could have done with a really good shampoo. What are your thoughts?
The Good life – what is this?
Living the good life has its challenges however for all the people I have worked with and met who are living life on their terms, they say, they wouldn’t have it any other way
When you work for someone else, they tell you how much you earn, how many hours you work, whether to wear a uniform, what time to have a break and you must abide by their rules or you lose your job.
If you are self-employed by creating your own business in whatever you really enjoy, sure you will have to work hard, long hours sometimes, you may not make a profit in the early days of your business, but you will be in control of your life.
You decide your hours of work, when you take a break, what you need to do to make it work and with focus, learning and believing in yourself, you can make it and be extremely successful.
I am going to share a business with you that, I absolutely love doing. Time freedom, money, awesome people, no risk, in fact, you can have a look for free if you feel like doing this.
The overheads(weekly costs) are around $22 US and that’s it, of course, heaps cheaper if you pay for a year.
Wealthy Affiliates is the business and it truly is one of the best things I have done with my life. the support within Wealthy Affiliates is amazing and the training you receive is incredible and so easy to understand. So if you want time freedom and financial freedom, Wealthy Affiliates might be just what you need to get moving forward.
Don’t leave your current job just. You can do this around your job or whatever else you do and still be very successful. I still work as a Mentor for people and work on growing my Wealthy Affiliate business. Kyle and Carson, the founders are really great people. They are honest and they truly want to help all of us do extremely well through Wealthy Affiliates so why not come to take a look and see how you feel. You might find this is one of the greatest things YOU have ever done
I know for me it is – I hope you have enjoyed this article and if you have any questions please leave a comment below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Bye for now
