Is This It..?
Let me ask you a question:
“What comes next?”
For me, it seems that this last couple of years seem to have challenged the way people are thinking. A common theme has come up time and time again in the conversations I’ve had…
“What Comes Next?”
You see a couple of years ago, everything changed. Most of us were forced away from our “normal” lives. Away from the office, away from the commute, away from the desk, away from endless meetings (in person at least). Towards our homes, towards our families
And while work still had to get done, we discovered it could be done differently.
It meant we could spend MORE time with our wives and kids. It meant we weren’t so stressed out, on edge, ALL THE TIME.
We could spend time outside just relaxing, time just for us, time to just sit and be
And guess what?
The work still got done. BUT it was more enjoyable. It was less tense. Less unnecessary pressure. It was as if we had a peek, albeit a long one, into what life COULD be.
Things have been back to “normal” for the last little while, in terms of the routines of work. And it seems that most of us aren't happy with the return.
From the chats I’ve had, I'd say that a lot of people are missing the freedom they experienced being away from the office
The choice, the opportunity, the fun…
And there’s some frustration at the return to the hamster wheel
To the hustle and grind and busyness - the 10+ hour days
To the suit and tie every single day.
It’s like we’ve had a taste of a different life. A better life. A life that gives us more of what we want - a life you wouldn’t trade for anything.
A realisation that you can have it all…
And the thought of missing out on that is terrifying. Of going back to living someone else’s life.
But here’s the thing.
If you don’t want to accept the long hours, the suffering and sacrifice (the unnecessary kind), the missing out
You don’t have to.
If you want to live life on your terms (the one you wouldn’t trade for anything, not even $25M)?
“But Fraser, if I gave up my job, to live a more relaxed life full of fun and moments, surely I’d have to take a huge pay cut”
No you wouldn’t.
How do I know?
Because I did EXACTLY that 10 or so years ago. That’s right. I had the corporate office job that made me look “successful”. The money, the house, the cars.
“Success” wasn’t making me happy. I was missing my kids growing up. I was spending next to no time with my wife, and I was always either tired or stressed. Often both.
I knew something had to change. I just didn’t know what, or how.
Maybe you know the feeling?
Maybe now you know there’s a better way to live than
Never having time for you and the ones you love.
Maybe you’re thinking...
“Is This It?”
“Is this really all that’s on offer?”
No, it’s not. Living life on your terms is much closer, and simpler, than you think.
IF YOU WANT IT. I mean REALLY want it. You can design a life that suits you. That puts you and the things that are important to YOU first
WITHOUT having to give up any of the trappings of “success”.
Define your purpose and identity, then add your passions to determine your value (this is your gold).
Then work out how to use that gold to help and serve others. Trading that for time, fun, moments, impact, money $$$ and freedom.
I know this works. Because I’ve personally seen it work with more than 1000 clients over the last 10 years. Men from many different industries and countries.
They discovered their value, their gold and unlocked FREEDOM.
