On this day last year, I celebrated my first day of being 100% self employed. It’s been one year since I quit my job to try out this whole “doing what I want” thing and surprisingly, I haven’t ended up in a van down by the river yet.
When you decide that you’re going to deliberately determine the terms of your own life, you’ll probably be surprised at how hollow the supposed roadblocks really are.
Sometimes the remnants of the old reality creep in and I end up thinking that I need to meet certain requirements, quotas, or fulfill social expectations. Then I remember, “Oh yeah, I can decide to not do that.”
It’s really simple if you let it be.
But while you’re working toward creating personal freedom, it can be difficult to “break through the veil” without a road map. Yes, doing what you’re passionate about is possible. It’s just a matter of choice. And at the same time, it can be hard to navigate the way toward that new self-created reality without a guide.
Last week, I asked you what guide you wanted me to create, and I wasn’t surprised that what most people wanted was a month-by-month road map for getting paid to exist.
So, that’s what I’m going to start working on at the Illuminated Mind base camp. I didn’t intend to start creating this on my one year anniversary of self employment, but it’s interesting how it worked out that way.
Anyway, I better get to work. I hope you like what I’m about to create for you. I’ve never created a tool quite like this, and I think you’re really going to find it useful.
