Don't just chase your dreams. Stalk them. Hide in the bushes and ambush them. Follow them around town. Make it so your dreams are seriously considering a restraining order against you. They will surrender with joy once they know you really mean it.

ARE YOU WISHING OR WILLING?
Barbara at Buckingham

As I began sharing details of my upcoming trip to Europe on social media, I kept hearing from people who sounded wistful, envious even. They reminded me that there was a time when I was one of those people who thought I would never figure out how to see the world. 

 

Two things made a big difference and I have passports full of stamps as evidence. The turning point began when I realized I could create a business that incorporated travel. I got really clear about what that looked like. I didn't want to be one of those weary travelers like the corporate road warriors I encountered in airport lines. As a self-employed person I could control not only the amount of travel, but also the destinations of my excursions.

 

That was motivation enough to keep me laying the groundwork. However, things really began to happen when I boldly decided to get my passport even though no specific trips were on the horizon.

 

Whether or not travel is a high priority for you, but I want to remind you that you have the power to create whatever your unfulfilled adventures list includes. Start piling up evidence of that. 

 

Pick a small experience and challenge yourself to fund it in a totally new way. This is one of the best exercises you can do if you want to create a life that exceeds your expectations.

 

Then celebrate your accomplishment and create the next project. And the next. Keep showing your dreams that you mean business by investing in yourself.

 

You could end up with a passport full of stamps or glorious experiences that constantly enrich your life. Best of all, you'll discover new talents and abilities you may not have known you had. 

 

Buon viaggio!

HOW TO TAKE YOUR NEXT STEPS TO MAKING A
LIVING WITHOUT A JOB IN 30 DAYS

The early stages of trying to making a living without a job sometimes seem to be the toughest. First there's the choosing of an idea you think will work and that you'll also enjoy doing. Then there's getting it off the ground.

 

But it gets a lot easier when you have guidance along the way and a peer group who want the same thing as you - to do something they love and get paid for it. 


That's why I'm excited to tell you about something very special happening today. My friend John Williams is the best-selling author of Screw Work, Let's Play: How to do what you love and get paid for it over in the UK and he has created a program called the Screw Work Let's Play 30 Day Challenge.

 

The 30 Day Challenge is a unique program starting soon where 200 people around the world find a moneymaking idea they love and launch it in just 30 days - and tickets go on sale today1st May, for only 36 hours.

 

If you'd love to make a living without a job but can't see how to get started (or don't even have a business idea) then read about the 30 Day Challenge here:
