Getting back on track in 2016
Well, here I am again after a long absence from this blog. I feel an apology is in order because I left in abrupt circumstances and although I tried to get back a number of times, the idea well was so dry I couldn’t get past a few paragraphs. I’m sorry for leaving you hanging.
So what happened?
The simple answer is I got busy.
Busy trying to keep my head above water in this ambitious challenge of leaving the wheel. But the good news is I’m still out of the corporate wheel and have plugged the funding leaks for now and look forward to sailing through 2016.
Now I’m the first to recognise I’ve moved from one wheel to another that is closer to home, well, in fact it’s at home. Such is the power of the wheel that even when you leave one there’s always another that wants to take it’s place.
Fortunately, the wheel I’m in now is one of my own choosing and my daily grind is filled with activities that I for the most part enjoy. I’ve been building blogs and producing content, just like I always wanted and although the steady flow of dollars is but a trickle, there is still plenty of light at the end of this tunnel.
Even as I write this now, I feel like I’m getting my MOJO for this blog back.
So it’s time I really commit to this blog again and 2016 is the year where it’s make or break.
Now don’t get me wrong as I haven’t been lazy in my recent absence. I’ve written over 200 blog posts in the last year and published over a 100 Youtube videos as I attempt to follow my dreams and admittedly have been getting swept up into a variety of different projects.
These projects are the foundations of the thing that stops us from Leaving the Wheel, the ability to earn money. One project in fact is a year long journey of discovery on ways to make money online. It’s primarily a Youtube Channel but I also compliment this with a blog, I’ll explain why in a future post.
You see the work I have been doing outside of this blog, is work I’ve done for this blog. The ideas and paths I’m following all seem to lead back to this idea of Leaving the Wheel.
I’m building a toolkit that I can share with you all, but first I need to be the crash test dummy so as to ensure I’m not leading you in the wrong direction. I thought this was going to be easy but I can see for the first time the true extent of this wheel and how ridiculously hard it is to truly break free from it.
I now understand why I was trapped for so long.
One cannot simply Leave the Wheel, without a plan and more determination than you can imagine. The thought of easy money working for someone else is the reason why most people stay in the wheel. The other option seems much more uncomfortable than the thought of hating your job every day, because we’ve learnt to suppress those emotions with pacifiers like shopping, eating and holidays.
I’ve discovered that Leaving the Wheel is more about getting back your sanity and offers the freedom to live your life as you choose and more naturally than you’ve even known.
It’s a life-changing experience and one that I look back on after just 8 months and wonder why I didn’t jump sooner. This life I lead now is full of challenges and intrigue and I’m learning a lot more about myself than I did in the last 10 years. I’ve unplugged from the Matrix and can see an alternative reality.
A reality where anything is possible, given time and determination. And by Leaving the Wheel I granted myself the gift of time, and now I just need to keep focussed on my goals which in its simplest form is simply to never return to that wheel.
I now know it’s possible to live a life outside the wheel, but before I leapt I had to trust in others that it was possible.
What I am trying to do here is provide an easier platform for someone to Leave the Wheel and to accomplish this I needed some time outside the wheel to work things out.
Some time to think and time to experiment. I know I’m close now.
So it’s time I started getting back on track and you can expect to see regular posts from me in the coming year.
2016 is your ‘Year of Leaving the Wheel’
