This past year has been the best year of my life. I’ve had 5 ‘trips of a lifetime‘ in the past 9 months.
Because I decided to just start LIVING. There was no pivotal moment, but rather an on-going desire to get out and experience all of what life has to offer. (There’s a too much to fit in one lifetime!)
I’m not trying to come from some high-horse, but more than a few people have told me my ‘lifestyle’ inspires them. And you know what? I think that’s AWESOME. But you know what’s even BETTER? If they ‘did’ something with that inspiration. It kills me to see friends and people I know stuck in a job they hate, relationship that’s killing them, or not living the lifestyle they want because of fear holding them back.
In a nutshell, this is the way I see it – you’re only young once, and the time to experience life with no responsibilities and an able body/mind fades as you get older. So make the most of what you have now.
Hate your job? Quit.
Stuck in a bad relationship? End it.
Live in a place that doesn’t give you what you want? Move.
Want more out of life? Go after it.
Your better life is waiting for you, and you know what you have to do to meet it. All it’s going to take on your end is a little will power and determination.
What’s the worst that could happen? You fall on your face and end up in a little credit card debt? Boo-hoo. Life goes on.
You’ll never know if you don’t try, and you’ll often be surprised at the outcome when you do.
One of the most amazing things I see is when people pursue their passions and MAKE THINGS HAPPEN. If you’ve been wanting to live the life you want and have been kicking rocks just dreaming & watching others take the glory – it’s time to make it happen. You wont want to look back on your life with the biggest “what if” feeling possible.
You know what you need to do. And if you don’t – you have the resources to figure out how. It’s the 21st century, and knowledge is accessible everywhere. So get on it. And then tell me about it.
“Tim!?” You ask. “Where is this coming from??? Are you trying to be the next Tony Robbins?”
No, but I find it extremely rewarding to see someone to grow and live the life they want.
So here’s a swift kick in the ass for both of us. To be honest with you, I’ve been having a ton of fun the past few months living life to the fullest and have been managing my work well, but haven’t necessarily been progressing towards the next step.
I want more. And it’s time to grow. So this post today is the kick-start on progress, and I’d absolutely love it if you’d join me.
If you’ve been looking for a sign – this is it. Quit your job. Pursue your passion. Start living the way you want, you’ll thank yourself later. TRUST ME.
Hit me up in the comments if you dig the post, and feel free to email me if you want to tell me about how you’re going to start making things happen. And PS – if you’re already making things happen, I’ve got a virtual hi-five waiting for you.
PPS – if you haven’t hear the song by Incubus (the title of the blog) – do yourself a favor and go spotify it.
