No alarm clock, no one telling me it's time to get up.
I could even go back to sleep if I wanted.
But the thought of coffee, fresh brewed in my open loft overlooking the city where I live, has me yawning and stretching my body out in bed, and now both feet on the ground moving towards the kitchen...
Sometimes I wake up alone, other days I wake up next to one of gorgious women I frequent.
I live in South America now, (Colombia to be exact) and that type of lifestyle is quiet normal here. Especially for a gringo.
It's been over two years now since I sold everything and left the United States..
A whirlwind experience that has changed me at the core. I am completely different person now, with a perception on life so much bigger and open that I couldn't have possibly gotten their if I stayed in my 'old' life.
My dreams for what I want and reasons for achieving them are completely different.
I have a desire to make more money than ever before, (which has always been a lot) but at the same time, I could run out of it all, and sleep under a bridge and feel just fine. I have found the magic of living in the moment, that makes that way of thinking possible.
But with this life, above all, the pain that even the moment can't take away, is the feeling of loneliness that comes with building a business on the Internet.
It doesn't matter how beautiful your surroundings, how nice your house, or how much money you have. The pain of loneliness can penetrate even the strongest of characters.
So what do you do with this pain?
How do you use it to fuel the energy and put it into your online business?
For me it has become this..
I plan to live a life of travel forever. There is magic in it, and I believe without a doubt a nomadic existence, blended with occasional spurts of a normal routine is our true nature. It makes us feel alive and gives us an endless sense of growth and adventure. It also allows us to mingle in a social pool of people, to intense to describe with words.
I love it...
But for me, everyday I wake up my drive comes from loneliness of this business to hurry up and make a lot of money, so that I can get back to living my dreams.
It really is easier than you think.
And once you taste the freedom, and the pure ongoing sense of joy that comes from accomplishing what you set out for. You would not be taking so long.
Just get er done...Feel the pain and do it anyways.
To your new life
