What gives you goosebumps?!

Something I have discovered over the years of our boat search/cruising lifestyle journey is that I get pretty stoked about another semi-related topic.  That is: hearing other peoples' stories of realising their dreams; the depths of courage, determination and perseverance it took for them to achieve their desired goal.
Seeing as it's the new year, I wanted to pass on inspiration from some soul/internet searching...

What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail; if time and money were no issue?
What would you love to be doing everyday?
What makes you come alive?
What gives you goosebumps?!

Here's a little "vision board" I put together, about 3 years into our planning process to try and keep everyone on board and understand why we were forever saving and not doing what everyone else was doing:

Here's some great ideas I came across recently. For more detailed info on these tips or to listen to the podcast, check out: (when you see an * it's my add in!)
1) Write down your goals, be specific, what do you want and why do you want it?
2) You need purpose, what is it you're chasing? Purpose is the opposite of depression.
3) You are enough.  Don't sell your dream short.
4) You are your best resource.
5) Alignment is the new hustle. Trust that you'll be led to your calling.
6) Energy is your greatest resource. Let your new sense of purpose fuel you.
* be mindful of any energy-sapping activities or people that drain you.
7) The past doesn't predict your future, your decisions do.
8) Take responsibility for your happiness.
* Angie Johnsey has a great 30 day mind-reboot course online and YouTube and one topic suggests that you define what makes you happy. (Highly recommend her daily 3min videos and short daily workbook).
9) Prioritize what's important and raise your standards.
10) Don't break the chain. Start with one simple small change and work on it daily
11) Failure isn' failure if you succeed in stepping outside your comfort zone.
12) You've got this.

It's never too late to chase after what you love. Why not make 2018 the year you take steps toward making it happen?

Let me know if there's anything I can help with.😊
