Chasing Your Dreams (With Reckless Abandon)

Although to a large degree I’m someone who always kind of has enjoyed working hard, I knew within a few years of working in Corporate America that it wasn’t the life for me long-term. When you’re working for someone else and constantly under the microscope, it’s oftentimes not smooth-sailing, and if you’re one of those people who prefers autonomy, there’s naturally going to be a lot of dissonance there with that type of employer/employee arrangement.

Sure, I endured the 9-5 culture for a few years — Working extra hard, never complaining (at least not at work publicly), and just

We all need goals in life… Otherwise, what are we really doing with our time? From around 2012-2016, my main focus and pretty much sole reason for existence was to get to early FI… In February 2012, I launched this blog, and well, that was the start of so many things…

Happy 4th of July 2018!

Happy 4th of July to all my fellow Americans out there, and to early financial independence freedom fighters everywhere in the world! On a day where we celebrate: liberty, courage, perseverance, determination, grit, etc. I can’t help but take a moment to reflect on my own early FI journey.

It hasn’t always been smooth-sailing, and there have been many ups and downs, but the key takeaway for me is — Never give up! Approach your dreams and true passions with reckless abandon. We only get one crack at the Game of Life so we better make it count! Don’t settle for the status quo, scripted life, and all the other shit everyone else is spewing in your ear on a daily basis.

It’s YOUR LIFE, so do you!

Study more, work harder, work smarter, surround yourself and build up a potent network filled with other like-minded individuals… Push yourself and let others inspire and motivate you to achieve even bigger and better things. Cut out the toxicity and be more positive!

 

Your dreams CAN become reality!

You CAN have the life you’ve always wanted!

And if you’re lucky enough, you CAN even make mama proud in the process…

 

2018 has been a rough and tumble year for me so far, but I’m doing my best to weather the storm and hang in there. Today, I took the time to just let all the bullshit that has been afflicting me go and remember to celebrate and enjoy life.

 

One step at a time… If we keep chipping away, keep our heads up, stay focused and optimistic, great things are bound to happen.

 

Happy 4th of July everyone!

 

Fight On!
