There is that thing that people say — that to get something you have never had you need to do something you have never done.
I have dreamed for so long about a certain type of life. A certain lifestyle.
I talk non stop about wanting to be completely office free, I want to work digitally, I want to be able to work from anywhere, I want no commitment to anything …. But I have put minimal efforts into this dream because it always just seems slightly unattainable.
I just decided this year is going to look different.
I wouldn’t say I am one for resolutions but I am someone who a few times of years like to be clear on my goals.
Recently though — it has felt more like I have given up on myself. It feels like things are just unattainable. And that, that is a tough pill to swallow.
It feels like nothing has worked since I got laid off from my job in 2020. But that was almost 2 years ago.
2 YEARS AGO.
(Where has the time gone?! — well, I know where time went, it went into depression and then personal growth and development, but I digress)
That is CRAZY.
There are moments where I feel like I am not living up to my potential for adventure because I live in FEAR.
In particular I have been living in an extreme amount of fear since March of 2020.
I am paralyzed by every decision. I am paralysed by the barriers I put in place to protect myself.
These last few years have put my confidence in the shitter.
All of this got me thinking — it is 2022, now what?
What can I do to pull myself out of the wasteland of coasting and fear. I need to step out of this space, and starting building something new.
So here it is — the plan (or mostly the ideas/mantras/things I need to really believe in and do):
- I am the captain of my own ship and if I don’t steer it in the right direction nothing will really happen the way I want it to. AKA Rule my own world, AKA Plan for success!
