The first attempt was in 2004. It was when I gave up most of my belongings and temporarily moved to my mother’s home. I was so sure to move to Brazil and to continue to build and expand my Network Marketing business here, which I had to that time. Though, a sudden change in business made me stay in Germany and work on the new venture there.
My second attempt was when I invited Edilene to visit me in Germany for 3 weeks. (We got to know each other on the Internet.) Those 3 weeks ended up to 3 months, she experienced the entire World Cup, and I decided to finally give up 90% of my belongings (again) and move to Brazil.
We have an amazing climate here (~30°C/86°F all year), and I enjoy beach view when looking out of the window of my home office. (The beach is just a 2-minute foot walk away.)
Having an Internet business gives you a lot of freedom. If you haven’t started one, of if yours is not profitable yet, I strongly encourage you to focus on getting one up ASAP. It gives you more freedom to decide to do what your heart calls you to.
What is your favorite place when going on vacation? Why not move there?
Are you afraid of losing contact to your friends and family? Skype and its amazing specials can help solve that problem.
You think you don’t have enough money for “the jump”? The cost may be lower than you expect. Why not calculate? It’s the first step towards manifestation.
Worried you have too much “stuff”, like furnitures, clothes, and other material goods? Let eBay help you get rid of them. Or give it to non-profit organizations who may need your stuff more than you do. 80% of the things you own you do not use anyway, so why keep them? Get rid of the dust collecting junk! This step alone will bring more mental freedom into your life. Do it and you’ll see. :-)
You’re afraid to live there “forever”? Well, who says you would have to do that? Why not do a test drive? Living 2-3 months in your paradise may give you enough chances to evaluate if that place is really your “dream come true,” or if it’s actually another spot on earth. We have a big planet. :-)
Bottom line, the excuses we develop in our mind may be just that, excuses. Only once you do it you know how it really is.
Start to plan and calculate. You may be amazed at how easy it actually is to to the jump and live where your heart calls you to.
If you do live at your dream spot, I congratulate you. Enjoy the time of your life.
If not, however, then I encourage you to do the first step now and get rid of some of the dust collecting junk while you outline the next steps.
Life is supposed to be fun!
