If you could get a life you absolutely love where you didn't have to worry about time or money constraints, what would it look like?
Would you travel more?
Live in another country?
Spend more time with those you love?
You've probably have heard the term "walking dead". It usually refers to Zombies and if you turn on Netflix more than likely you will find a tv show or movie about it.
But I've come to use it to refer to those who get up, go to work, come home, eat dinner, and sit on the couch watching TV until it's time to go to bed.
Then start the same routine over again the next morning.
Weekends they might do an activity or two, hang out with family and friends and then find themselves on Sunday grumbling about where the heck the weekend went.
when they would find themselves asking " Is this really all there is to my life?"
As a success coach, I've not only had my clients asking some version of this question but have seen both my husband and I go through it from time to time.
The problem I found not only with my clients and ourselves in creating an authentic life was that it comes with a lot of uncomfortable realizations and questions that can fill overwhelming.
Great, I just woke up to the fact that I'm not living the life I want, now what?
It feels overwhelming to me and I don't know even where to begin.
What will people think if they find out I want to change my life so radically?
I'm so tired and worn down, how am I going to find the energy to make the changes I need?
You might be saying I have clarity. I just want out of the rat race!
Couldn't disagree with you that isn't clarity but let's dig a bit deeper.
Yes, this is sort of about goal setting.
But it's a little more in the sense that you have to get clarity not only on what you want but how far you are willing to go to get it.
Get really clear about how far you are willing to go or as my husband says how far you are willing to rip the bandaid off.
No one ever wants to experience pain but sometimes that can be eased by learning to recondition yourself so that you don't have as much of an attachment to "stuff" whether it's physical or emotional.
One of the biggest tools we have found in our journey to having a life we absolutely love is to learn the art of letting go or aka simplify, simplify, simplify.
So over the years, we always have participated in our community garage sales. From the time of the garage sale to the next one, I always was amazed by how much stuff we had collected to get rid of.
In the name of honesty, it was mostly because I LOVED thrift stores.
When we made the commitment to truly carve the life we want and gained clarity on what that looked like, I knew that we had to immediately stop the flow of what was coming into the house that didn’t have a real purpose other than the fact that I just wanted it.
But depending on your vision for your life, it might be different but I encourage you to look around and honestly ask yourself "Does this serve a purpose?" and "Do I truly love it?"
Let's face it if you are looking to be able to roam the countryside, the world or maybe your own backyard, you need to have the financial freedom that allows you to do it without constraints.
There are a ton of freelancers who take their mad skills on the road, but my choice is creating passive income that allows you if built right allows you the freedom to earn money with or without you being there.
Like so many others we suffer from an incurable disease called adrenaline junkie(itis).

Making the decision to get a life you want vs one you don't want seems like a no brainer.
But there are hurdles that people come across and can't seem to get over to make that jump into their new future.
What I have found with my clients, is that it really boils down to the fact that the scary feeling about truly having a life that allows them to play and grow usually stems from feeling like they don't deserve it.
