While I was at my bootcamp class, my trainer posed a question to the group. “If money wasn’t an issue, where would you live?” and guess how every person responded (except me) . . . they named some other city. I found that amazing. I was the only one that said, “Here!” and it felt good.
I found it interesting that the start of that question was . . “If money wasn’t an issue.” The assumption is that it takes MONEY to be where you want to be in life. Our trainer wants to live in California. So, I asked him why he just didn’t move there. He is really good and certainly could train in California. I wondered what was stopping him, and everyone else in the room. WHY wasn’t every single person in that room NOT living where they want to be?
Are you where you want to be? Are you living the life you want? Are you living where you want to live, making they money you want, in the career you want? WHAT IS STOPPING YOU? No action means no change! Let me share with you that MONEY IS “NOT” THE ISSUE! It’s the inaction, the limiting mindset, and the belief that ‘something else’ has to happen first in order for you to make that change that keeps you where you DON’T want to be!
Thirteen years ago, I sold my house and moved to Atlanta without knowing a soul. I actually drove the UHaul truck down myself! I knew I didn’t want to live in Michigan, shoveling snow. So, I just did it. It’s one of the best moves I’ve ever made. I lived in Europe for years, having received a scholarship that was almost impossible to get. But, I tried, I got it, and I lived and worked in Germany. I wanted to work in Washington, D.C. but was told by my University that it was too late to apply for a scholarship. They already picked their interns. But, I applied anyway and . . . yep, I got it. Someone had dropped out and an opening was created. THERE IS ALWAYS AN OPENING! It’s up to you to get it.
It doesn’t take money to get what you want. It takes action because that is what creates opportunity. Action, EVERY DAY! Action will get you where you want to be. You can’t settle and get the things you want in life. I wonder how many more years my trainer will live in a city he doesn’t love, desiring to look at the ocean every day in California. Nothing is stopping him, but his own limiting beliefs and inability to take the action to make it happen. It doesn’t take money!
You can’t obtain wealth, gain the freedom, live in the city you desire, until you take action every day that will make it happen. When you do that, you will be surprised at what will start to show up that will help you to get there. When you create the momentum, the right people and circumstances will appear. I know, because I’ve done it. I have a movie coming out next year because I sat my buns down EVERY night and wrote a book. Then I pursued the resources to get it on television. Stay tuned for more on that as I will introduce you to how I did it and how you can too!
You CAN achieve wealth, freedom, and a life you dream of. The barriers are simply the ones you create in your own mind. You are in control. That means that you can just as easily eliminate those barriers and do what it takes to manifest your ideal life. It doesn’t take money, it takes action! Go take action! And when someone asks you if you are where you want to be, you can say “YES!” with pride.
