Nomads work remotely

If the alarm clock fills you with dread, and the thought  of spending the next 20+ years doing what you’re doing now makes you panic, you know the time is right to face whatever fear is stopping you from living a life you can design; a digital nomads life.

I felt like this once, and the thing is, once you’ve stopped thinking about every single possibility that can go wrong and actually do it, the relative scariness of the risks completely disappears. Isn’t hindsight wonderful?

Perhaps you have things you want to do in your life that don’t conform with the working pattern that has been predetermined by society. There often comes a point when surviving as the living dead just isn’t enough anymore; wake up, go to work, work, come home, sleep, repeat. You reach a crossroads, and the choice becomes simple; you continue doing what you’ve done and die (spiritually, not physically!), or you face your fears and take a risk. Once you’ve taken that risk, no matter how terrifying it might seem, often a sense of clarity follows  – you gain full perspective and you’re back on your true path again.

I’m not saying there won’t be bumps on the road but it’s about managing that risk and, more importantly, that fear. If you measure the potential impact of leaving your job on a scale of 1 to 10; with 1 being nothing, and 10 being permanently life changing, any sensible human with some life experience would be have to admit that any negative change is likely to be only temporary, however significant it feels at that time. On the upside, any positive change is likely to have a long-lasting, permanent, good impact. Isn’t that what you’re looking for?

What if you haven’t reached the point in your current existence where you can’t stand it anymore? What if you’re just unsatisfied? Perhaps a bit uncomfortable? In my opinion this is the worst place to be. This is where you rationalise that things aren’t that bad, you can’t really complain, the family is okay, the kids are just about provided for, you’ll get a pay rise next year… maybe. It’s easy to carry on, plodding away, until in another 5 years down the line you’ve either had enough or something forces you out of this comfort zone.

If you’re not currently in a living hell ask yourself this, “are you better off than you were one year ago? Or even one month ago?” Financially? Emotionally? Spiritually? If not, you need to know that things will not just change themselves. If you change nothing, nothing changes. You have to be the catalyst for whatever change you want to see in your life.

So, what are you afraid of? It’s time to initiate positive change and see how to join the digital nomads;

Grab a pen and paper and ask yourself a few things…

What is the absolute worst that could happen if you make this big change by starting a digital lifestyle begin to work remotely?

Define every aspect, in crystal clarity. Would it be permanent? How likely is it that you think the worst will happen?

 

If the worst did happen, would could you do repair the damage?

You’ll probably see that repair is fairly easy when push comes to shove.

 

What are the more realistic or probable outcomes of taking this step?  

How would it affect your happiness, self-esteem, stress levels, boredom levels?  What would the impact of these be on a scale of 1-10?  How likely is it that you could pull these outcomes off?

 

If you lost your job today, what would you do to take back control? What are you putting off out of fear?

Generally, that one thing we fear the most, is the one thing that needs doing most.

 

What is continuing on in your current life costing you? What are you waiting for?
