Your day is moving quickly, as you struggle to get your kids off to school and yourself off to work, you are feeling hurried, there is just not enough hours in your day to get everything done. Freedom from the 9-5, and living a lifestyle of your dreams, full of adventure that was your dream. It hits you like a ton of bricks, “how did I get here?” This is not the lifestyle you had thought and dreamed about. You say to yourself, “My dream lifestyle has family time, fun time, travel time, how did I end up here?’ You feel discouraged and a little angry your dreams of travel and adventure are fading each day, into a distant memory. Does this sound familiar? Freedom from the 9-5 and living a dream life is easy once your shown how.
Living a lifestyle of your dreams starts with knowing what your dream lifestyle looks like. What would a typical day be like for you? Take the time to truly think and explore what your dream life would include. What would it look like a week from now, a month from now, 1 year and 5 years from now. Most people give little to no thought about their life and what type of life they would like to have. Giving no thought to the lifestyle you want is like getting in the car and driving, not knowing where you want to go. Most people give more thought to planning their child’s birthday party or a dinner party than they do their life. The first thing I had to do when I started my online business was to determine what I really wanted and what was the price I was willing to pay in order to get it. I encourage you to give some real thought to where you want to go. You need to know what your dream lifestyle is. Does your dream lifestyle include travel, a new home, your own home based business, time freedom, better health, better family relationships or contributions to charity? Imagine your dream lifestyle.
After spending years in the health care industry I knew I was not living my dream lifestyle. My dream life included time freedom where I could spend more time with my family, have time to travel, and included adventures. I felt my dreams where slipping away like distant memories. I decided I was going to seize the day, I grabbed my courage, took a leap of faith and turned in my resignation. I traded my old life for a brand new one. I have never looked back, and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have been able to spend time with my family, determine my own schedule (which includes time for taking care of my health), and have time for traveling.
Give some thought to determine what your dream lifestyle looks like. To live your dream lifestyle and to create freedom in your life, it comes down to knowing what you really want, before anything else. Then grab your courage and go for it. You won’t have any regrets.
