When was the last time someone asked you what you really want to do in life?
When did you ask your self and really gave it a thought, what you want to do with your life?
Do you remember what you dreamt of being or doing as a child? For so long I actually forgot what I wanted to become when I was a little girl. But recently I start to remember that I wanted to train dolphins to perform and do all the funny tricks in a show. Now, as an adult, I have another perspective on keeping dolphins inside a pool for us to watch them jump through some rings, but that is not the point.
I also dreamt of going to Montana and living the cowboy life. I wanted to ride out in the wilderness and sleep by the fire with the saddle as my pillow. Now as an adult, I would probably pack my own pillow in the saddlebags 😉
But then I started school and I was taught that my dreams were just dreams and now I was supposed to learn everything I needed to get a real job! A real job means that you will need to wake up early in the morning and go work for someone else, until the evening. I was also taught that I was supposed to be grateful for the fact that someone wanted me at all. Therefore you should never say no to any job offer and not make trouble by stand up for your rights.
So I did! I ended school and took whatever job offer I could get, no matter how bad the salary or the work environment was.
Of course, sometimes I asked my self if this was all in life. But then you look around and see that all the others seem to accept the fact and you don’t want to be ungrateful, so you just keep on.
I did all that for 25 years until my body finally abruptly stopped me! Not until I was forced to make some changes in my life, did I took control over my destiny. What if I had done this a long time ago!?
Today my life is totally different, I sleep until I wake up in the morning and then I start every day writing down what is the most important thing I need to do, to get me closer to my goal.
Can you imagine how different that is to be able to work with the most important things for me to achieve my goals, instead of starting your day at the office or store or whatever environment you work in, to do the same thing you do every day, to get bigger profit for the owner of the company you work for?!
Can you believe me when I say that I don’t feel like I’m working at all anymore? I get to help other´s that also feel stuck in life, to get closer to their goals, and I get paid to do that!!! That’s an AMAZING feeling!
So, back to my dreams…when was the last time someone asked me what I really want to do in life? Well, I get that question quite often from our leaders in SFM. Why, because they want me to ask my self the very same question and be clear on my ideal day, my ideal week and my ideal life. My mentors have taught me the importance of getting clear on my goals to be able to achieve my dreams.
And even if my dreams is not the same anymore, I finally have started to live my life as I want to. In a few days, I and my family will sail away for 8 weeks in our sailing boat. This is possible because I now have my laptop lifestyle, which means that I just bring my laptop.
When is it time for you to be clear about your dreams and take action? For how many years will you do what you do today? Do you even remember what you dreamt of being as a child?
Take action today and stop wasting your time. It will never come back to you.
Remember, having the laptop lifestyle does not have to be your dream, but living the laptop lifestyle can be the solution for you to give you the income you need and the TIME FREEDOM you certainly need if you want to fulfil your dreams.
