Who do you think you are!? Somebody who can dream big, save a little bit of money, go out and live an action-packed life? Gimmee a break.
You and I both know those adventures are for other people. People sponsored by big outdoor companies with big ad budgets. Athletes. Superstars. The best of the best.
You’re no athlete. You’re no superstar.
Stop dreaming. Go to work. Put your head down. Be content living vicariously through people whose lifestyle you envy.
It makes sense, really. Some of us are destined to see it all, do it all, tell it all. The rest of us—the vast majority of us—well, we’re just stuck in a never-ending routine, counting the days until the weekend. And besides, the older we get, the less likely anything big and exciting will ever happen to us.
Am I right?
Absolutely not. You know that, despite me being a smartass.
Why, then, do so many of us get tricked into thinking along those lines? Trust me, I do it, too. I’m pretty sure we’ve all done it, even those superstar adventure athletes.
It’s such a limiting approach. “I would love to live a life like that, but…”
But what? There has to be a way to defeat it. Any ideas?
