Build Your Lifestyle By Design
Life is too short to waste doing a daily commute and going a job you are not passionate about, day in and day out, following the same old routine. Instead you should take control over your options in life and build your lifestyle by design.
For the purposes of this discussion Freedom is defined as time, location and financial freedom. That is you can work where you want, when you want for as long as you want with whom you want and maintain a lifestyle you would like.
People Who Control Your Life
People gain power over you by controlling the options you have open to you in life.
When you are young your parents have control over you. When you get older your boss has control over you at work, telling you when you can take breaks or holidays as you trade your time for dollars instead of spending that time with friends and loved ones.
It is only when you retire at the end of a long career that you truly gain your freedom and can take control over your destiny. But by then you are much older and your health may be failing so you can’t enjoy it as much as you could when you were younger. And unfortunately for most people these days that superannuation nest-egg that you thought would cover you doesn’t really go that far and may not even cover the basics of life.
As a society we need to become more enlightened and change that and design a lifestyle of our own design. A lifestyle that gives us the time, location and financial freedom we all deserve.
Your Options In Life
Think about it….all your life you have been told by everyone around you what to do, what to think, what to wear, how to behave and career wise you get told you can either:
a) become a homeless person living on the street relying on others for handouts, living day to day just surviving; or
b) go to school, go to university, get a good job, settle down and get married, get a mortgage, buy a house, raise a bunch of kids and work for 40 years to pay for it all, then get the gold watch and retire.
Now I think you will agree how you react to those two options is going to have a profound effect on your lifestyle.
If you choose the first option, you will have no money and a hard life and no time as it will be spent just surviving. If you choose the second option, which is better because you will have money, but you still have no time to go out and enjoy it with your family and friends except for a few weeks each year and on the weekends or when you retire. Either choice doesn’t really provide a lifestyle you would willingly choose if you had other options open to you.
But it doesn’t have to be that black and white…
Step into your own Personal Sovereignty
In life, when you are faced with a decision that says this or that and you don’t like either choice then you should refuse them both and create a third way.
You need to take control back over your life, step into your own personal sovereignty, and create a third option. You need to break free from the status quo, refuse to be average and build a lifestyle by design. You deserve a good life, a life of abundance and joy. And not just when you reach retirement age but all your life.
That one realisation that your options are never just what other people say they are and that you can break free from the options that are presented to you is going to be of value to you for the rest of your life.
Unfortunately it took me 48 years to realise that. You see in 2013 I was following dutifully in the second option when one day, just out of the blue, my role was made redundant. It was not only me but over 100 other good people who faced the same fate that day due to a restructure in the company we worked for.
In less than 24 hours we were all unemployed and out on the job market left to fend for ourselves at a really bad time in the job market. That was my wake up call. There was no such thing as a full-time job anymore, I realised it was a myth, it simply doesn’t exist.
At the time I had a house and mortgage, and a wife to take care of. Things got tough, there wasn’t much work around as the job market had collapsed and there was often more month than money. But I refused to let it beat me and I realised I had to take ownership of the problem and step into my own personal sovereignty to rectify the situation. I am now four years into that journey and well on my way to achieving my freedom lifestyle.
However, I don’t want the same fate to befall you and hopefully this blog post acts as your wake up call rather than finding out 40+ years later that there is a problem.
The sooner you take ownership and step into your own personal sovereignty the better. Make that day, Today!
The Road To Freedom
Now this is all well and good to say but how do you achieve true freedom?
Well like anything in life there is a cost and it doesn’t just happen by magic overnight. You have to actively work at it and invest in yourself in both time and dollars and then reinvest in yourself to get the tools and learn the skills you need to achieve your freedom.
We live in times where the guarantee of work and the stability of the economy are uncertain. So we must take control of both. We need to design our lifestyle to be such where we create our own work and we create our own economy that we can rely on.
It is fortunate for our generation and that of those to come that we now have the ability to do just that. We live in an information age with it’s own digital economy that is separate to the traditional economy. We can take that fact, use it as leverage and shape it to our advantage.
I am now on a mission to grow leaders who I can work with to build our own economy together. Anyone can go out and get a bunch of people who follow them, but true leaders create leaders. True leaders empower their people and transform their lives, so they can achieve their full potential, to the point where their people can go out on their own and achieve success in their own right and then pay it forward to others.
I am a firm believer in Jim Rohn’s famous quote:
You can have everything you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want out of life.
I have dedicated the rest of my life to helping others and I want to help you to reclaim your life, show you how to take control of it and build a lifestyle by design.
