Many of us wish for a lifestyle that we are not currently enjoying. Sometimes we put off creating the lifestyle we desire until all the stars are aligned and we can have it ALL. Does that sound familiar to you?
As I write this blog post I am sitting at a table by the beach, listening to the surf and breathing deeply the delicious ocean aroma. My needs are simple, I have a bottle of water, my laptop and an idea, well several ideas and I’ve planned to just sit here undistracted and write.
My ideal lifestyle is one where I can run my business from my laptop anywhere in the world. DO l spend everyday by the beach writing – no, I have clients to coach, speaking engagements to deliver and business stuff to do like marketing, meetings to attend, and let’s face it, not everyday is beach weather.
The important thing is to start creating the lifestyle you want to lead NOW, rather than put it off until another time.
So what’s the lifestyle you desire?
I am going to assume you need to conduct some kind of money making activity, as an employee or running your own business. Either is fine and you can create the lifestyle you desire around almost any career path.
Would you like to:
- Work less hours
- Take up a hobby
- Start or run your own business, maybe even from home
- Start your work day at 10am (I have a friend who says health before and wealth after 10am)
- Have 10 weeks holiday per year
- Fill in your own blanks
So how do you start this NOW before the stars moon and planets align?
Well first you need to know what you actually want, so start writing that list first and we’ll talk about what to do with it in the next post.
