Change is so good my friend!
Until very recently, I was foolish enough to think..."Once I get my 'baller' house, car, boat, shoes, etc. I will be satisfied." Right?...Sooo WRONG.
When I moved from my "too tiny" apartment to a home which was about five times bigger (Isnt that what you're supposed to do when you make more?- Wrong!) I quickly realized... that bigger isnt better.
BIGGER MORE EXPENSIVE THINGS BRING BIGGER MORE EXPENSIVE PROBLEMS/RESPONSIBILITIES. Period.
The fact of the matter is the more things you own the more things you are responsible for, the more stress you have, and the less time you have to do things you want to do or spent time with the people you want to spend time with.
It was a slap in the face when I finally realized that I was spending most of my time managing the stupid crap I bought (or problems they created) instead of enjoying life.
So...I decided...to get rid of EVERYTHING! To change EVERYTHING!
Starting with my...baby...apple of my eye... Infiniti G35. And guess what? It felt GREAT.
Then I sold my furniture, home theater, motorcycle, iMac, etc.
I literally got rid of 99% of all my clothes and stayed with enough to last a week. Why you might ask?...
I decided to stop doing what every stressed out, overwhelmed, under-lived, American was doing to embark on a journey.
I am not just going on a trip...I am leaving my old life in the US behind in search for adventure.
I've always made crazy progress in life by making decisions that take balls.
1. Dropped out of highschool at 17 = got into Internet marketing and sold 34,000 copies of my first product.
2. Moved in with my girlfriend at 18 (knowing her only for 3 months) = Going on 3 years together now, shes my best friend and absolutely favorite person in this world.
3. Selling all my possessions, to free myself and search for adventure and growth = Billion dollar Kris?
Point is.. anything worth something in life takes balls.
If you're struggling to make some money online, then one of the reasons might be because you lack certainty. I felt the same way too. I used to hate committing myself to projects or tasks without being certain if they were going to work or not... so 99% I ended up NOT doing it.
Has something like this happened to you?
If so, screw it! Balls to the wall! Get a clear plan of action of something that's PROVEN to work and run with it. You'll spend more time making decisions then taking action. Don't let that be you!
Everything I own is going to fit in a backpack which I will carry around while I am country hopping around the world. Woot woot!
To know that everything I own fits into one measly backpack is exhilarating. :-)
If there is one thing that I learned is that the car, house, boat, motorcycle etc... is a pile of nonsense!
"I'll work 40yrs of my life so SOMEDAY I can take that dream vacation or buy my dream car.."
THEN WHAT? They'll be happy? The end? BULL****!
"Money buys happiness" - ha yea, if you've never had it before. How will Bill Gates feel after winning a $100 million dollar lottery? I bet not as excited as the dude that drives a bus for a living?
We tend to want things we don't have and put ourselves and our lives in situations we would never normally be in just to get them.
The first drive in that car you worked your tail off to purchase will be the BEST...it all just fades away from there.
When you realize you don't like something about your life/business:
Step 1 - Awareness (I realized external objects can't fulfill me internally)
Step 2 - Plan of action (Sell my stuff, share my success and travel)
Step 3 - Do it. (Everyone skips this step
I am going to see new things, meet new people, and learn to love and enjoy myself and the people around me without having ultra expensive toys to try to fill a void.
So my friends, if anything I have said makes sense to you, can you do me a little favor?...
Tell me about one big scary decision you've made in your life that ended up turning into a blessing.
Also, here's a simple tip to start eliminating your emotional attachment to stuff:
1. Give or throw away ONE thing you are emotionally attached to...or think you are.
2. Notice you didn't die, the world is still spinning and it actually felt quite liberating (like clearing up space in a cluttered hard drive)
Guys I am talking about the watch you like to show off to all your friends or that boat you believe to be a part of you.
Ladies, I am talking about that purse that cost more than what more people make in a year...you know what I'm taking about! I have a girlfriend, you cant fool me! ;-)
DO IT! FREE YOURSELF!
Be sure to notice in how FAST you move on.
There's a quote that I read the other day that I want to end with.
It opened my eyes and it just completely makes sense to me know...
"Everything popular is wrong." -Oscar Wilde
