Nomadic Lifestyle as a Goal
Photo by Blake Wisz
I talk about goal setting a lot and one of the goals that I have been pondering as of late is being able to pursue a more nomadic lifestyle.
Yes, it’s true…I’m a little crazy, but hear me out.
When we are online working our asses off to generate incomes and whatever else the good folks around here do, one of the big draws for me has always been to be able to just pick it all up and travel.
And I am not just referring to a Christmas in Paris, but something quite a bit more subtle.
I am interested in living a nomadic lifestyle permanently…well, at least semi-permanently.
Why a Nomad?
For me, there is nothing better than the idea, and I know this is a fanciful romantic idea, of hitting the road and staying on the road indefinitely.
While this may sound a bit crazy, as already stated above, I have been putting some serious thought behind it and watching tons of videos on YouTube of people living in this fashion.
You see, a few weeks ago I was teasing my oldest daughter about building my own trailer/RV and leaving the “madness” behind.
I love irritating my kids, one of the perks of being a “cool” dad.
Anyway, while I was joking about the whole nomadic lifestyle thing, in the back of my mind I really thought that this idea was a bit intriguing.
What happened next, really sort of blew my mind.
I’m Not Alone when it comes to a Nomadic Life
I decided that I would do a little research…no way, not me!…and I ended up finding that there were many people living the life of a nomad right now.
I came across a few blogs and YouTube channels. After viewing just a couple of videos, I started to believe that this goal of mine might not be so crazy after all.
As a matter of fact, it seemed like it could be an extraordinary way of living.
I started to make a list of all of the things that I would need to do, as well as all of the “things” I would need to get rid of, to make this impulsive idea more of a realistic opportunity.
I realized that the more I thought about and researched this nomadic life, the more I thought that it would be possible for me to jump into the nomad world.
I also realized that this could be a big step for me in terms of being able to “live” life rather than doing the traditional 9-5 rat race.
You see, I’m all about freedom. Freedom from the restrictive behaviors and culture that I have grown up in included.
Like just about everyone out there, I was sold a bill of goods that I needed to go to school, get a good job, get married, have some kids, blah, blah, blah. I just do not want to take part in that any longer!
If I could just get, or build, a nice travel trailer, I could hit the road and with that bold and unconventional move life could be good.
But nothing is easy for a nomad (wink)…and nothing is really free either!
You Have to Pay for Freedom
As mentioned above, I have given a lot of thought about what I would really need on the road as well as considered the obvious question of how to pay for it all.
For me, the obvious answer was to create an income online. All I really need is an Internet connection, a laptop and a phone
I have been promoting and marketing different business opportunities online for many years now, but I had a problem with many of them. I always seemed to be able to generate some sort of income, but people I brought into business with me seemed to struggle a bit more.
In the end, I just decided to start my own training site and attach a program that I knew worked and worked well. This would allow me to focus on what I really like to do, which is teach others how this Internet income generation thing works.
Thus, began the marriage of the Elite Marketing Systems Group and the All in One Profits program.
So, the nomadic lifestyle that I am thinking about pursuing seems within grasp!
Step-by-Step to Accomplishing Your Goals
While I may be referring quite a bit to this nomadic life concept, tt doesn’t matter what your personal goals are, as long as they are within the world of reality, you can accomplish them.
It has been my experience that the best way to accomplish those goals is to work towards them incrementally, that is a step-by-step process.
Break down your own goals, start where you want to be, work backwards and develop your map.
Another thing to consider is whether or not your goal has ever been accomplished by anyone else.
If so, then you may want to study what that person did to arrive at their (and your) goal and then mimic what steps they took; don’t try to reinvent the wheel.
A Clear Path and Consistency
Whether it’s to leave that job you hate or hit the road developing some sort of nomadic life for yourself, make sure that you are clear on what it is that you want.
After that, it’s about being disciplined and consistent enough with your efforts each step of the way.
The only way to fail, in anything you pursue in this life, is to quit. Don’t quit, keep fighting the good fight and…maybe most importantly…enjoy the journey.
See you at the top!
