“I Am The Hero Of My Story – I Embrace Everything That Is Going Right In My Life, And Take Responsibility For Everything That Goes Wrong. I Create Change. I Am My Hero”
I’ve got to be honest here. I don’t have all the answers, and I don’t have life figured out.
I don’t know exactly where I’ll be in 5 years and I’d be lying if I told you I’m exactly where I want to be in my life.
The good news is I like it that way. Uncertainty. The Unknown. It inspires me to stay curious and stay moving forward.
I’m 28 years old and as of this writing I still work around 40-50 hours a week at my job. I graduated College in Business Marketing thinking it would give me some sense of direction in life. At the time I didn’t think it accomplished that. It did give me a great understanding about what I didn’t want to do in life though. I didn’t want to default to just following the path everyone else did.
After completing the various levels of schooling, joining the work force, and being in a stable yet unfulfilling career a realization soon set in:
We are not owed anything in life.
No one is going to step in to save or direct our destiny. There’s only YOU.
You know in movies how the main character goes through struggle and challenges, but in the end everything gets wrapped up nicely and it all works out? Well I hope this isn’t news to you, but THAT’S NOT HOW LIFE WORKS.
The realization set in after working for a few years that there is no “next level” that society has set out for us like there is when going through school. It’s up to us to find fulfillment and most people just take things day by day. Days soon lead into years. Years lead into lifetimes. Before you know it life has passed us by.
In The Story Of Our Lives, So Many Are Simply Playing ‘Extras’ In Their Own Movie
When They Are Destined To Be The HERO.
Guess what? Everyday we walk through a world of unrealized dreams and regrets. Most people live their lives as if it’s that movie simply waiting for things to work themselves out. For many it never does.
Since that realization set in I have grown a burning desire to live a life by design and NOT by default.
I started doing things that got me outside of my comfort zone and pushed past what I thought was possible for myself, and there is where I found my love. PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION – Challenging my assumptions about myself to discover my truths. There is where I discovered infinite possibility lies and is available to anyone and everyone.
One of the first major challenging things I did was learn a new language (spanish) and than started backpacking in different countries – Alone…
I learned that the amount of joy, fulfillment and sense of accomplishment we get in life is in direct proportion to how much we are willing to challenge ourselves.
Since then I've been to a variety of countries around the world and each year I commit myself to visiting 1-2 new countries. It's created some of the most amazing experiences of my life.
So I started challenging myself in new ways, working towards things that I never thought I'd do - Like get my scuba diving license and explore the under water world (That's me on the left)
Or spend weeks exploring these new countries with everything I own being carried on my back, indulging in the backpacking lifestyle.
And so many more activities, experiences and goals that I constantly strive to challenge myself to go bigger with!
Through this belief I set my mind on how I want my life to look.
We can have it all. Being able to work independently for ourselves from a laptop, taking on the lifes biggest challenges, traveling the world, pushing our limits and tapping into a whole new level of possibility. We can do that!
I Want To Serve And Inspire Thousands Of People To Become Their Own HERO
It's time we embrace that burning passion at our core to stop playing small, and start playing huge.
To stop living life on the defensive and start going on the offensive.
To stop letting peoples opinions, circumstances, and traditions determine how your life plays out and make the decision to write your own story.
The journey of growth never ends and we're all at different points on the same path as students of life.
On this website you will find blog posts, videos and resources I've found or created during my years of study, implementation and growth and I want to share it with you as we both continue to become the HERO of our story.
I appreciate you visiting this page and taking the time to get to know me and I look forward to connecting with you as we both continue on this journey.
