I am a lazy bastard and need to grind on leaving this bitch.

I have been becoming more and more disgusted with myself lately because I haven’t been working on moving like I should. Part of this is because I have been spending more than I am taking in recently and it has me in a bit of a funk. I like my job as a dispatcher but it doesn’t offer much in financial freedom and my bills do not help my endeavor either…

The house my brother and I live at is stupid expensive for just the two of us as our nephew isn’t able to contribute much and there are some other things I have to get paid off on top of that. We are possibly looking into selling the house and getting a place at the lake to reduce bills if we can not find someone we trust to move in to one of the extra rooms but he balks at that idea at the same time because a smaller place would be cheaper and if I move overseas, the extra room would be a waste as I do not plan on paying for a place in the states if I am going to be here as little as possible for the next several years.

My second income as an author doesn’t really help but it is a few dollars coming in every month for not doing anything… although I spent a lot in promotion for the four books I currently have out, so I really haven’t made anything… luckily they will keep earning something… more if I could get people who buy them to leave some quality reviews.

I have steadily been trying to get my bills reduced over the last couple months and I have been spending a lot less… I even bought a bunch of high sodium microwavable bullshit for work to save me money eating out all the time. I need to get into the habit of cooking food for work but it is hard to get into that groove when you only really have about 10 hours off work and try to sleep without setting an alarm. Alarms are the bane of my existence… I fucking despise them because I tend to sleep hard and they make my heart pound out of my chest waking up to them.

With all this being said, I have to get another income and have been working toward it, sadly, due to the 3rd world internet I have at my house, I have to get another job on top of dispatching and working towards learning how to become a location independent nomad. I am in the process of doing this… I will not leave my current job if I can help it but there may have to be some changes… we will see how that goes.

I have been slacking on learning things for this move also… It is very easy to get complacent late at night when no calls are coming in and just fucking off and tuning out with Netflix or Google+ or Tumblr or whatever else. I need to bring some books, finish 4-hour work week and things like that.

Maya Bay, Koh Phi Phi Ley, Thailand.In working on Chops Guide to the Galaxy pretty extensively tonight and helping my friend Ashlee with her new blog, I have been looking into some blogs to follow to help me with me move or tell me about places I would like to go to… in doing so, I found this post by Declutterbug UK who I am now following. In this post, he tells a little about this guy Sean Ogle and his Location 180 financial independence program who I have not heard of to this point that I remember.

So I decided to sign up for updates from Sean Ogle and confirmed my submission via email… I immediately got this email which prompted me to write this post… partially to answer these questions in my blog but hopefully to see if any of the huge group of my mom reading this would send me what their answers would be… the email I received was as follows:

Hey There!

Seriously, so happy you decided to join us. I really think that today is going to be the day that you stop putting off life, and start pursuing the things that really excite you.

Best part? I’m here to help you every step of the way.

So now that you’ve made the decision to start making changes in your life, what’s next?

Well, there’s two things I want you to do right now (what you didn’t think this would be a totally passive thing did you?):

#1: My biggest struggle right now is financing my move… once I get on location and can blast away on making some money,  I do not think it will be such a big issue but spinning up to that point is where I am struggling. I want to get enough to float my way through a couple months of grinding on making some money. Also working on getting my certificate to teach English just in case.

I want you to email me right now, and tell me what your biggest struggle is at the moment. What are you working towards or trying to change, but having a difficult time with?

Really, hit reply right now and let me know. While I can’t reply to everyone, I personally read every single one of these emails.

#2: Based on the first country I figure on being at,  my perfect day would be waking up in my apartment in Phuket, Thailand, going to see my friends Iain and Oui at their dive shop for a kick ass wreck dive, coming in, grabbing a bite, grinding on some income for a couple hours… taking a nice girl out for dinner, wandering around and ending back up at the apartment to make the old beard a throne… rinse repeat. If we are talking Chiang Mai, Thailand… same thing minus the diving and more wandering around.Doi-Inthanon-in-Chiang-Mai

Think about what your perfect day would look like. Seems like a simple exercise, but once you can visualize every second of that perfect day, you’ll find it much easier to make the difficult changes towards shifting your own reality.

Now, write it down and put it somewhere that you’ll see it often.

That’s it! Wasn’t so hard now was it?

So where do we go from here? You’ll be getting six emails over the next week to help set you down the path that will get you to your perfect day – probably sooner than you think.

I couldn’t be happier to have you here, and I can’t wait to get a response from you soon.

Cheers,

Sean
