Okay now, let us get into it the 4 steps on how to retire early and travel the world…

You probably would have noticed I talked about making money from a business and making that money work for you because you are not going to be able to retire early solely working a job.

Jobs are designed to make you survive paycheque to paycheque (if that) instead of thriving and living your best life.

See how you can generate multiple streams of income regardless of your background and experience.

Best resources for personal development

This is a very close topic to my heart. Personal development is one of the greatest attitudes that you can have in your life. 

Yes. it’s an attitude to want to be more, do more and give more.

Many people do it unconsciously and few do personal development on purpose. 

Like most things in life when you do it on purpose and with intent you will get the most out of it. 

resources for personal development

I love reading books and used to read many of them before I started my medical career, since I did that my life was overtaken by medical books and lectures and I didn’t seem to catch a break from it until I started becoming more intentional about my personal development over the last couple of years.

You see life is busy and can seem overwhelming but when you run to serve others before you serve yourself you will quickly feel you are running without petrol and you are constantly struggling to get through yet another day. 

Put the breaks down and fill your cup first. Be intentional about your own personal growth and development and you will find the right people around you grow, people who would pour into you as you pour into them.

You can browse more of our free tips on personal development and creating your freedom lifestyle here.

Personal development can definitely be fun, light, and not time-consuming.

You just have to pick the right resource for you.

I like reading, but some people are more visual and like to see videos, others are keen listeners and prefer audio format. 

Find the type of material that works for you. You can even have a selection of them and use interchangeably. 

While it might seem like a lengthy process and probably your mind is already telling you I have enough to deal with already. I urge you over the next 30 days to pick up one of those resources that I mentioned and spend 5-10 minutes on it every day. 

Put a timer on your phone and invest those 5-10 minutes a day for a better you and a better future. 

If you think 5-10 minutes a day is too much and you can’t be asked then check out the box below for the Better Life Challenge. It’s 2 minutes a day spanning over 30 days. It also comes with a nice prize at the end as an incentive to invest in yourself!

4 secrets to designing a life you love

4 secrets to design a life you love

Many of us go through life doing what we need to do to survive but not look at what we can do to thrive.

If you are someone who thinks I just want to survive. I don’t mind living unfulfilled. I don’t mind being unhappy then this blog is not for you, I’ll tell you that now and save your time.

How to design a life that you love?

That has been a passion of mine over the last few years and I only honed into how to do it over the last two years.

  • You don’t have control over your timetable. The work-related activities that you do. I know many medical (and other) professionals who suffer from that.
  • You are tired of being underrecognized, overworked, and underappreciated.
  • You don’t have enough time to spend with your family.
  • You want to contribute to the community that you live in but struggle to find the time.
  • You don’t have time to practice your hobbies and now you have forgotten what they were in the first place.
  • You don’t have enough leave balance to go on the holidays that you want.
  • You don’t have enough money to pay for the holidays that you want. 
  • You don’t know how to work out your life schedule to give you the balance that you desire. 

If any of those resonated with you then keep reading.

Nothing changes if nothing changes.

I bet you’ve heard that one before, right?

The change comes from within you.

It starts with the desire and always needs to be followed by action.

The action doesn’t need to be a major overhaul of your life all in one go. 

It is breaking down what you want to achieve into small chunks and work on them one day at a time. 

Here’s a framework that I have used when I felt some or most of the pains above and how I made those little action steps that have given me a life that I’m excited to wake up to.

1- What do I like about my current state; work, relationships, health, hobbies?

2- What do I not like about them?

3- Can I fix the things that I don’t like and how?

4- What does my ideal life look like? what will I be doing, what will be eating, how will I dress… Really get into the detail of envisioning it. 

Write those down. 

My mentor says “trust a short pen over a long memory”.

Take time to really reflect and think about them.

then write down the steps you need to take to:

  • Fix what you don’t like.
  • What does that look like for you? part-time work, a new venture, a new dating app, a different workout. 
  • Try one thing at a time.

Nourish what you do like and design a life that you love.

You want to know how?

Did you write down the life you want to live?

Find someone living it and emulate what they do.

You will get the life that you want as a consequence.

You will get the time that you need for your family and community.

You’ll have hobbies and the holidays.

You’ll have the schedule and lifestyle you are after.
