Yes. You can level up your life and get what you want. Promise. It might not be super easy all the time, you might have to get out of your comfort zone, and you will for sure have to do stuff when you don’t want to.
But sister (mister), you can do it and you must!
And during this amazing process of leveling up your life, you will be met with judgemental and angry people. It’s like once you decide you are going to level up, these people come out of the woodwork. It’s God’s way of testing you to see if you are really in it to win it.
Since we have announced our plans to travel full time for a year in our RV, we’ve been met by lots of Debbie-downers. And I mean, A LOT! It’s shocking really how people try to put you down and make you feel bad.
Tim and I have worked hard figuring out what we want in life and have surrounded ourselves with the right people to get us there- coaches, masterminds, and business people leveling up their own lives. It’s not a matter of not being able to do something; it’s a matter of making what fills you up a priority and going for it.
People tell me how they have bills to pay, a job to go to, kids to take care of, and other responsibilities so traveling the country is too far out of reach for them. I suppose they assume we have somehow magically gotten rid of all responsibility and don’t have a care in the world so we can just ditch reality. And really? They give up that easily on a dream with those silly excuses?
As functioning adults, we all have grown-up things that we need to take care of. Tim and I are no different than anyone else.
What IS different is that we have decided to be in charge of our lives and not have our lives be in charge of us.
For several years now we’ve invested in world-class coaching, we attend seminars where we can meet like-minded people, and most importantly, we have leveled up who we spend the most time with.
I love what Tony Robbins says- “who you spend time with, is who you become.” If you hang out with negative people, guess what? You will be negative. If you hang out with people who gossip and complain, guess what? You will too.
Magically, if you invest time with people who commit to making their lives better, who are disciplined and push themselves and others, and take massive action towards their goals, guess what? SO WILL YOU! Who cares if your current friends (or family!) make fun of you, or roll their eyes, or don’t understand the changes you are making. It’s not their life. It’s yours!!
So the next time you have an idea or a dream or something big up your sleeve, go for it. If you don’t have the right people around you, find them. People like this are easy to find and are willing to share, mentor, and encourage.
Search groups on Facebook, find people to follow on Instagram, be disciplined with your exercise and hang out with those kinds of people (running clubs, CrossFit gyms, yoga class) and last but not least, SPEND THE MONEY and go to a seminar.
I’m emphasizing “spend the money” because so many people use money as an excuse.
You have the money.
Stop going out for drinks, stop going to Starbucks, stop going to Target, cancel all your credit cards, and break-up with whatever auto-pay stuff you have set up. You get the idea.
There are so many ways to level up your life, but it won’t happen without work. You need to take the first step. The steps after that get easier and easier, and pretty soon, it’s just your way of life, and you will be blown away by how far you’ve traveled.
You can level up your life and get what you want, promise!
P.S. If you find you don’t have someone who’ll appreciate how you want to level up your life, email me! I’m happy to listen, fist bump, and have a dance party!
