One of my “go to” saying is…
“We are going to die soon.”
Not in a depressing way or context. It just is what it is.
I think this fact is why some people are extremely fearless. They are ambitious. They just go for it in every aspect of their lives. They don’t take things too seriously.
It’s easier for these types to succeed in business—for sure.
It’s also why some people don’t work much. They’d much rather do what they want, when they want. Golf, surf, travel, etc. They just don’t want stress in their lives.
Both take bravery.
Both take risk.
Both can lead to happiness.
…and I believe you can be both ambitious and free.
All you have to do is design your life that way. Think outside the box.
It takes time.
It takes constant effort and the willingness to say “no” to distractions.
Both require you to do what you’re good at and delegate the rest.
Both require not being afraid to hire, outsource, and delegate.
You can be alone.
But you can’t do it all alone.
Never forget that.
Your practice should work for you, not the other way around.
