It’s always a great time to come to Thailand, to rest, relax, rebuild and renew, to take a break from the world and have some time to reflect. With the way the world is going today, people need to slow down more than ever before, and maybe start even having a bit of fun again! The world has just gotten too boring and serious, and come on guys, there is more to life than that!!! What ever happened to just living the good life??? Being happy, free, and healthy?? These concepts have been replaced by a fear of not enough, not enough money, not enough houses, not enough hours in the day, not enough time to work, not enough time to live. What a sad and miserable existence we have created for our modern day society! So I say, snap out of it guys, reclaim your lives back!! Take an extended holiday. Get out and travel. Enjoy life while you have it!!! Turn off your televisions and live a little already!!
Life is so simple and yet abundant at the same time for me here every day in Thailand. I have the sea at my doorstep, I see the beach and sunrise over the water every morning, I run through the backroads of the island for exercise, I walk the beautiful stretch of beach 3 miles every day, I visit with friends, spend time with clients, have time to read or listen to music or whatever I want to do, I make my own schedule every day, working as much as I want to, I have time to work on my own projects, I enjoy and appreciate the simplicity of my days, I stay away from traffic and stress as much as possible, I sleep with the sound of the waves in my room, I have an abundance of fresh healthy food and I am in gratitude with every moment.
I created the life that I wanted to live, having escaped from corporate America over 10 years ago now and never once have I looked back, I work with passion and enthusiasm with what I do (finally!), and I did it all on my own against what everyone said was possible. If I can do it so can you, and I can tell you, your chances of success will be much greater if you believe in what you do and if you truly love your work. So spend some time getting to know yourself and find out what makes you uniquely special. Then become the best there is in the field that interests you. It won’t even feel like work when you find something that you love to do, that is how you know you are living out your true calling. Now more than ever it’s time to give up the financial rewards and start looking for inner satisfaction and peace of mind, body and spirit. Good luck and hope to see you on the road one day
