683 | What will you do with your new found freedom?

I get asked, from time to time, what’s the first thing I did when I started to feel successful.

I have to admit, what I did was pretty cliché.

It’s so cliché that most internet “gurus” point to it in their free content or their ads. You’ve seen the ad, pretty girl sitting on the beach with a laptop or a young guy sitting in a beach chair, with a laptop and an umbrella drink…

It’s so cliché that when I ask people this question, “what will you do with your new found freedom?”, 48.754% of them say the first thing I did…

No, it wasn’t, “go to Disneyland”. I’m a grown man, after all.

Alright, so what is it?

“Live on the beach.”

Yep, I moved to the beach.

Funny thing is, I didn’t originally feel successful because of money. My first million came and went and I didn’t even notice.

I know that sounds stupid and unrealistic, but I was totally engaged in my business. I enjoyed the “work” I was doing and I just got in the habit of doing it. That wasn’t the thing that triggered me to be cliché.

At that time, I lived in Salt Lake City, Utah. If you don’t know Salt Lake, it’s mostly surrounded by mountains and is at a high altitude.

The winters can be brutal.

That winter WAS brutal and I had enough. Summer came and the feeling of annoyance was decreasing because of all the snow was melting away.

Then it happened. It snowed on June 3rd.

I kid you not, it snowed in the summer. It snowed about a foot and a half.

I fumed all day as I watched snow fall in front of my home office window, IN JUNE.

Then it struck me. I didn’t HAVE to live here. I had the money and freedom to live where ever I wanted.

So I moved.

The first thing I did with my new found freedom was move to the beach in San Diego, California.

Freedom of Location was the first Freedom Factor I partook in.

There are 5 Freedom Factors we talk about in the next course I’m adding to the Freedom Club.
