How to Live with More Purpose and Freedom

Published by BR365admin on

Regardless of your age, or position in life, freedom excites us. Freedom is that refreshing feeling that brings a euphoric youthfulness to our lives. Freedom allows us to take chances, involve ourselves with fresh experiences, meet interesting people, and gives us the ability to live a purposeful life we are genuinely happy to live.

But with today’s “go-go” lifestyle built around working just to keep our head above the water, the luxury of living a “free lifestyle” seems rather unfamiliar and foreign.

I’m sure as hell not willing to compromise my one life on this planet, just to wake up and go to work.

So, how do we rectify this?

First off, we need to remember one thing, freedom is what we make of it.

There comes a point where life starts being viewed in blocked stages: School, work, family, retirement. And with this, we get lost in pursuing us. We jump from one stage to the next, without missing a beat, and before we know it, we trap ourselves to living a life of comfort and security while missing out on creating a life of authentic passion and experience.

Comfort and security is naturally what we want, but it shouldn’t come at the expense of not living a life that excites us.

Now, everybody’s idea of passion and experience looks different, I get that, but there is no man or women among us wouldn’t want to optimize life just a tad bit more.

So, how can you keep moving forward comfortably in life, while still pursuing the experiences that thrill us at our core?

***It all really comes down to action.

My number one principle to make sure I do the things that I want to do is by being proactive in the moment.

1. I sign up, book a flight, pay money, commit to a date or whatever else I can do that FORCES me into that experience.

If I know I want to make the change, I make it.

When I do this, I lock myself into either sinking or swimming.

This is literally what my 365daychallenge is all about: Doing things I’ve never done before and living an incredibly rewarding, achievement filled life, where I can give back in the process.

If I actually thought “logically” about what I have to put my body through, or the amount of hours I will have to dedicate to training for a new adventure, while thinking of the totality of my challenge, it would scare the hell out of me.

It’s a lot of new. A lot of pain. And a lot of discomfort.

However, overthinking is the worst thing we can do to ourselves. From a mental standpoint, we as humans are too good at rationalizing, that you have to eliminate the access to easy excuses, without having some form of financial or social repercussion.

In other words, you have to let yourself either lose money, pride or credibility if you want to drastically increase your chances of taking action.

Without this social, financial or internal loss, we will rationalize not to make change that involves a form of discomfort 9/10.

This leads into my second principle.

2. Write out your goals and tell people about what you’re going to accomplish, and be specific with what you want in life

When you externally voice your “wants”, one of two situations come to be: Either you are the person who follows through and realizes a fulfilling new achievement or milestone or you’re the person who looks stupid not doing the thing you said you were going to do. And in the process, you lose other’s respect and trust, thus decreasing your sense of importance or status, both of which are incredibly valuable to our sense of being.

Be specific. “I want to be happy, rich, successful, in shape” – that’s too vague! You have to put a number or detail on your goals and purposes. For example: I want to give back. Okay great, but how and why? Who do you want to help? What excites you to change? Where does your passion lie? Be specific and ideas will become much clearer, much faster than you thought.

3. AVOID ‘1 Day Island’

I hear it all the time, one day I will run a marathon. One day I will train for a triathlon. One day I will buy a bike, get education, go back to school, see the world, join an art class and make a change. The problem with “I’m going to, want do, hope to”, is it leaves a lot of us stuck on ‘1 Day Island’. On ‘1 Day Island’, we find dreams, hopes, and desires all piled up, from millions of people, never to be realized; goals that will never come to fruition, all because people waited and waited, and told themselves the timing isn’t right.

If the time isn’t right, fix your life. Find out why the time isn’t right. Rather than waiting, be proactive to rectify the issue. This is at least a step in the proper direction.

I can relate

My story is just as relatable as anybody else who is looking to try something new, and experience a more freeing, rewarding life. Regardless if it’s learning to cook, taking up gardening, allowing our creativity to shine or in my case becoming an expert in grit and becoming an adventure athlete, writer, speaker, you have to force yourself outside your comfort zone and be okay with not knowing how each step along the way will go.

To showcase this, this was me 6 months ago –

I am not a long distance runner. I am not a swimmer. I do not own a bike.

I can’t swim more than 50m consecutive, which takes less time than taking the garbage out.

I don’t own a pair of real running shoes.

And I have NEVER ONCE considered spending over $500 on a bicycle.

Yet, here I am. Training for half ironman’s, cycling 100km per day across a province, while running ultramarathons that have me running from when the sun comes up, to when the sun slowly starts coming down.

The only way I was going to accomplish my big goal I had at the start of my challenge, which is to earn my masters in the field of consistency and grit, was to sign up, and force myself to train and achieve this moniker.
It’s not easy. But it’s the most efficient, incontrovertible way to living a life of purpose.

This type of freedom or life, requires sacrifice. You can’t initially have your cake and eat it to. There will always be sacrifices needed to be made. Maybe its sleeping 6 hours instead of 8; working on plans or projects when you get home, rather than watching your favourite Netflix series. It could be not being hungover and staying out late the night before, so you can get up tomorrow morning and train your body or mind with vigor and zest. Or it can be preparing your meals rather than eating out, so you can save up money for travel, or a new experience. And maybe it’s jumping into a new hobby or challenge without feeling 100% certain or confident about it.

But, with this sacrifice, comes great reward.


To summarize:

1. Tell people what you want out of life.

2. Don’t be afraid of exposing yourself. Start by telling the people who you are most comfortable with and if this doesn’t promote much action, you have to expand your community and get accountability from another line of resources. There’s something very detoxifying by letting people know about your deepest goals and desires. Yes, it’s difficult to put yourself out there, but it’s what’s needed for us to hold ourselves accountable. And from doing so, solutions to our challenges are much easier to find. You no longer feel like you’re fighting an unwinnable fight, but instead have multiple avenues to help you out along the way.

3. Avoid “1 Day Island” – stop telling yourself, one day I’ll do this or that. It’s a dangerous capricious game of chance. Give yourself a time frame and make it happen. This increases urgency. This increases hustle. This increases the likelihood you get what you want out of life.

4. Take action. When you sign up for something or share your goals, a mental stimulation occurs. You begin problem solving with real intent as this new challenge or goal has become factual; you then look for actual solutions to achieving your goals and living a more freeing life. Your enthusiasm for what life can be like, motivates you to put the work in, and you think in terms of what can be, rather than what isn’t.
