It’s hard to believe that I could be actually recording this podcast in the Santa Fe National Forrest in New Mexico. If you were to tell me 10 years ago that I'd be camping in a rooftop tent and living out of our ‘98 Jeep Wrangler for weeks at a time...while at the same time running and growing a business...I'd think you were crazy.
Ten years ago, this type of lifestyle just seemed like a pipe
dream. Actually, the dream wasn't even formed yet.
My husband, Robert, and I live a “work from anywhere” lifestyle. We like to travel weeks at a time, being nomadic, and experiencing wonderful journeys along the byways of our beautiful countryside.
We are not traveling as much as we'd like, but we are traveling
more than most. We are always working to experience more. To
stretch ourselves to earn a living by helping others with their
businesses but also creating a lifestyle we enjoy. It sparks our
motivation and it sparks our life's enjoyment.
I've been talking a lot about mindset in the past several episodes. I think that mindset has a lot to do with accomplishment and success. There are so many things that come up in life that presents resistance to achieving our goals.
I truly believe the biggest resistance comes within
If we are in the right state of mind, we can overcome the little details of not knowing what we are doing or how we'll achieve that big goal we have in mind.
Is a mindset shift a sudden change? Do you wake up one morning and BAM!! You've got a different outlook on life and can make anything possible? Or does it come incrementally? Maybe there's a little bit of both.
In this episode, I share how incrementally Robert and I moved toward our work from anywhere lifestyle. Then, BAM! We took a leap and downsized drastically so that we could enjoy more travel. Then incrementally, we continue to make choices to move us toward longer stents of travel.
Sometimes, when you’re in the moment of “right now” and you wish things were different, you may think you’re not making any progress. Listen to the podcast and reflect. I do hope this episode allows you to reflect on your achievements while at the same time giving you ideas and inspiration to stretch toward the lifestyle you enjoy.
