Are you living the life you long to live? If not, why not? Yes, there are certainly valid reasons—raising children, significant debt, poor health—why your options may be limited.
But chances are that the brick wall you see in front of you might just tip over with a good shove. The question is, Are you so passionate about living your dream that you are willing to accept whatever consequences await you on the other side of that wall?
Live as you will wish to have lived when you are dying.
Christian Furchtegott Gellert
For instance, if you are more interested in doing than having, perhaps it’s time to move into a smaller space to reduce your monthly overhead. If that appeals to you, what’s stopping you from following through?
If you want to travel the world, why aren’t you figuring out a way to make that happen? Explore getting a job as a travel guide or working on a community farm in exchange for room and board. Who says you have to go first class?
If you feel intimidated by certain relationships in your life, what’s preventing you from walking away? If your boss is abusive and you can’t find a comparable job elsewhere, is your health and peace of mind worth the difference in salary you’d lose if you took a lower-paying job? What’s more important to you?
These are questions that only you can answer. The question is, Are you too sure of the answers to ever get around to asking the questions?
You don’t have to fight to live as you wish. Live as you wish and pay whatever price is required.
