Each society has a norm, a set of rules and way to go about life and everyone is expected to follow along, no questions asked. It doesn’t matter where you’re from – you should do as everyone else does.

It’s safe to say that many people agree and it’s what most aspire to. If that’s your goal, go get ‘em, all the best to you. But if you’re like many other people who are going through the steps but something doesn’t quite feel right…STOP IT, NOW! It’s not easy to break away and follow your dreams. Not everyone will support you but here’s why you should consider it…

You may not realize it, but we’re programmed to be clones (metaphorically speaking, of course). You’ve heard the term, ‘Just because your friends jump off the bridge, it doesn’t mean you have to.’ Think about your life in a similar way. Try budgie jumping instead – meet your friends halfway.

Although it’s not easy, many have done it and are doing it – while you’re at work, minding someone else’s business for, too often; a measly salary, limited yearly increase and insane work hours and unrealistic deadlines. It takes hard work, determination, risk and time, but it’s totally attainable. It can’t be done without breaking your breaching your comfort zone.

No regrets: If you fail, at least, you tried. Thomas Edison said that he failed his way to success. It has been said time and time again that it’s better to have tried and failed than to not have tried at all. When you get to the “end”, you’ll only regret the things you didn’t do.

Your health is often a reflection of your environment. I’m not talking about pollution. It’s more how you feel about your setting. If you’re stressed, it will show in health in some way or another. A natural way to good health is by being at peace with your mind, another reason to follow your dreams. Humour can also take you a long way. You’ll need plenty of it if you’re going to live an unconventional lifestyle.

Take back your time. Time is precious, that’s why you spend it. Dedicate more of your time to yourself. Don’t be selfish, just stop working (all of the time) toward your job’s deadlines and start working toward your own goals. You’re the only one who’s going to truly work hard for yourself.

Be free. It’s what all of us really want. We want to be in control of our lives and in too many ways, we’re not.

While we may never achieve 100% freedom, after all, there are laws to follow – we can start by breaking free from factors that are within our control. Start by getting rid of your fears and make a list of realistic things that you CAN change. Baby steps.
