Living an Epic Life is NEVER an Accident
All of these things are DELIBERATELY CRAFTED.
This is my core message today – if you want to live a special or extraordinary life, you have to PAY THE PRICE.
What’s the price of having a relationship that very few people on the earth have the pleasure of having?
3, 5, 10 years after the infatuation phase is gone, you are still buying your girlfriend flowers, making cute home-made cards, going on dates with her, taking her on the millennium wheel for her birthday (lol you can tell I am a romantic) telling her “I love you” even when you’re pissed off at her.
In other words, I wanted everything in my life to be a conscious choice: from the person I’m with to how I spend every minute of my day.
Think about that: imagine if every part of your life was a CONSCIOUS choice – you literally wrote down on paper what you wanted, and now you have it.
It can be.
Here’s the thing:
Most of what happens to you in life, if you don’t choose, is mediocrity.
Dunno what career or job you want? You’ll probably fall into a corporate job, giving you just enough money to survive and never more, with an annoying boss, and colleagues that couldn’t give a shit about anything but themselves and their ‘job’ that they hate.
Dunno what partner or spouse you want? You’ll probably find a girl or guy that’s “good enough” and “will do” – and you’ll fall in love, and in three years you’ll fall out of love, it’ll grow stale, and if you’re brave you’ll break it off, and if you’re not you’ll stick with it and get married.
Dunno what kind of life you want?
You’ll get the same life as everyone else. The 9 to 5, the job that ranges from “ok” to “soul crushing,” the family that’s nice, the dreams you have but you never pursued, planning to travel but never doing it, and lots more.
It doesn’t have to be this way if you don’t want it to.
How to Live the Life You Want
Like I said, the kind of life you’re dreaming of has to be deliberately crafted.
It won’t happen on its own.
How do I know?
I get emails every single day from men and women alike that say this exact sentence:
“I had all these dreams and just assumed they would happen. But now I’m 42, with a wife, kids and a mortgage, stuck at a job I hate, wondering how I even ended up in this life. I just feel like I’m in someone else’s life. I don’t know how I got here.”
Don’t let that happen to you.
There are only three things you need to know:
1. Understand that this kind of life is DELIBERATE. It will NOT just happen.
2. You need clarity about what you want.
3. You need to PAY the PRICE
So today, do you know what you want?
And are you willing to pay the price for what you want?
