Be honest, you are. Maybe not to Uruguay. Maybe not to settle in a new place, but to regularly explore the world. Maybe I shouldn’t say “thinking” but rather “dreaming”, “imagining”, “wishing” or similar non-action words. That’s ok, that is in fact great, the imagining, wishing, longing, hoping, is the start of what you need to find where your next adventure lies.
But it is daunting, especially when you next start to think (and overthink) all the things you must do and the things that you feel will hold you back. Soon you feel you cannot consider it, it is “unrealistic”, it is for “someday”.
Bah-humbug! I can’t tell you if the time is now for your particular life, but I can tell you that if you truly do want it, you can and will find a way.
In part, because there is help out there, here in the virtual world – a vast network of help. Some of it free, some of it paid, at various rates, much of it “pay it forward”. On our blogroll we have a number of great sites like Sabine Panneau’s Anywhere in the World, Tim Anderson’s Marginal Boundaries, Natalie Sisson’s The Suitcase Entrepreneur.
Amy has some very inspiring thoughts, and also specific action posts. Yes, there are services and coaching she sells (come back right here in 2013 and there will be ebooks and info packets and referral services that Lisa Marie Mercer and I will sell!) but Amy also provides a bunch of rock-solid great free info too. Among that, a wonderful Location Independence Checklist. It’s free-as-in-beer with a kindly pay-it-forward Tweet or Facebook Post. (I’ll have to have a chat with her about Google+ someday, which has been a huge part of my personal brand-building, but I digress.)
Or even right from her blog post. Please, if you have a dream, or even just a hope or a wish or a glimmer, look at these resources. Perhaps start today with Amy’s guest post on Natalie’s site, her Eight Questions That Will Help You Get Location Independent. She starts with what is of course number one, but we often skip it: What does your ideal life look like?
But she doesn’t stop there. Solid info on taking that visualization and making that life come true are in 2 through 7.
Join us – me, Lisa, Amy, Natalie, Sabine, Tim, so many more, who have made that jump. Nobody is saying it is easy or free of fear. But if you want it, you can have it, and there are so many of us out here helping each other out – and happy to help you find your dream life.
