3) I drive people nuts talking about it.
4) I'm more productive and proactive.
5) My mind is busy, busy, busy with possibilities.
6) I'm happier.
For years I have had a picture in my mind of a property I wanted to own and a business
I wanted to develop and run from that property.
Here's my picture (I've never shared this publicly so don't tell anyone, it's our secret):
The property is about fifty acres in area (huge). It has creek running through it. It is a wilderness setting with most of the property uncleared (of trees). It has a beautiful old-style home (for me) and accommodation (huts, cabins) for about fifty people.
It has all the facilities and resources (commercial kitchen, lecture theatre, meeting rooms, etc.) for me to be able to run workshops, seminars, and live-in personal and professional development programs.
It is located at the end of a windy dirt road and it is totally private, exclusive, and serene. It is near the coast. The air is so pure it burns my city-slicker lungs and hurts my smog-conditioned eyes.
You already know what I'm gonna say don't you?
No, I haven't purchased anything, but...
I have been investigating properties seriously for a while now and two days ago (at 12:30am after four hours of researching) I found my dream property. It ticks every box.
It is set at the base of a mountain, it borders a national forest, it is twenty minutes from the coast, it has everything I want, even the creek — complete with fish. If I was to build my dream from scratch, this is what I would have built. I have only seen electronic brochures and spoken to the agents (three times) but everything I've heard and seen is very positive. Exciting even. I am off to see it in the flesh next Monday morning (it's a few hours each way to drive). I'm counting the sleeps.
Think of something that excites you and then multiply it by ten — and that's me right now. I love excitement. I love possibilities. I love exploring, pushing, discovering and creating. I dunno what's gonna happen next Monday but I do know I love this feeling. So glad I haven't grown up yet.
What about you? When are you gonna get excited about something? Anything?
Maybe sometimes you could stop being so careful and sensible ... and 'the same'?
I dare you. Double dare you.
And if you're very good, I might let you come and visit it me on my new property and possibly let you ride my big-ass mower.
