Directly after High School, I went to College to Study Chiropractic, but I was Young and Unfocused and after 3 years, of a 7-year course, I quit.
I spent the rest of my 20s working in various Service Industry Jobs.
At 29 I discovered Yoga, got fully into it and began Teaching a year later.
I’ve been doing that for the last 12 years.
Now, the thing about Yoga; It’s one of the most effective
You can get yourself out of a Bad Mood in a few Minutes, you can Flush Out Days of Tension, but it doesn’t pay for Shit!!!
As many of you, who Exchange Time for Money know, There’s a limit to how much you can work in a week and if you’re not working, you’re not earning.
Teaching Yoga is a very Chilled-Lifestyle, but you have all this Free Time on your hands, with very little Extra Money to enjoy it with.
I Spent Years living on Lotto-Dreams, I can tell you in detail how to spend $10M, all the things I would do, places I would go, things I would buy… This Dream-Life kept me distracted from the lack of fulfillment I felt in my Real Life for a short time.
I got stuck in Conspiracy Theories for a while, you name it, I was into it! Aliens, Secret Societies that Control the World, 9/11, Chemtrails, Ancient Aliens…
Any of you that have been into these things know, it’s a Black Hole which sucks you in. It’s Addictive!
Then I got into News & Politics, Social Welfare & Environment, all important Subjects, but not if they pull you away from Living your Life!
A year ago I started Gymming seriously and it’s been amazing to see they physical change in my Body, but not just that, more importantly, the change in my Mind and my ability to push through the difficult parts;
I have more Endurance, Commitment & Determination than I Thought I had.
I’ve been trying to understand what the last 25 Years have been about?
Why have I been sitting on the Sidelines of Life?
I’m currently reading “The Motivation Manifesto” by Brendon Burchard:
“Many people want something better for themselves - their ambition is alive and well - but they still do not feel motivated. Why?
Because despite the hope for something more, they don’t believe it can happen, or that they can make it happen…”
And that’s me to a T;
I don’t Believe that I am able to make by Dreams Real,
there’s a deeply held Mistrust and Misbelief in my Ability to Stick it Through and Make Things Happen,
so I Sit and Watch Other’s Live Their Lives!
This lack of Belief in
For some people, it Spurs them to Action, for others it has a Castrating Effect, for
I’m almost 43, and one thing I don’t Believe in is Regret.
I think it’s Important to Mourn the Loss of Youth, but it is Gone and will never be back.
So, Now What?
