Is it really possible to live the life you want to live?
When my husband and I first were married some 30+ years ago we were listening to a Jim Rohn goal setting workshop. In fact we were listening to a “tape”. If you are too young to know what I am referring to tapes were how we listened to recordings before CDs.
Ivan, my husband, had just attended a weekend workshop with the late Jim Rohn and had purchased his tape set. We were listening to the workshop and setting our annual goals.
Jim was giving ideas of things we might want to have in our life. One of them was to live in summers all year round. This really appealed to me as I hate being cold. It became one of those little “someday goals” I tucked away and have never forgotten.
Even though living in summer really appealed to me I did not see it was possible. 30+ years ago we did not have the internet and living in summer would mean living in different hemispheres at different times of the year. I am in Australia and right now in June it is winter. I could not get my head around building a business and moving around.
The Internet Changed it All
Fast forward all these years on and we now have the internet. I share where I live here in this video.
Live the Life You Want To Live
Now living by the beach may not be what you want to do in your life. That is okay. My point here is not to convince you to live by the beach or in continual summers. My point is to say you can have the life you want to live. It may take time and commitment but you can work towards it – whatever it is you want in your life.
When I first thought about living in summers we had a brick and mortar business and staff. In my head at the time I felt I was tied to that business. Over the years and with the internet we have moved several times.
I now live in the sub-tropics so still not summer all the time but hey it is pretty good. I am now building my internet business with one of my goals being to live in the northern hemisphere when it is our winter in Australia.
To Live the Life You Want To Live should not take you 30 years! I know it has taken me a very long time but there was no internet when I started.
For some of you who are still very young you can work towards living life on your terms at a much younger age.
A quote from the man himself
“If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” Jim Rohn
And one more
“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.” Jim Rohn
