Life outside the box

Living in a box

We grow up in a society that is driven by a totalitarian system. Living in this box is not easy, but for most of us, it’s all we know. We are literally labeled as taxpayers. This alone should set off alarm bells. The crazy part is how most citizens will defend this system, often with their lives. I self-published an e-book, Free I Am that goes into a lot more detail on this subject.  I promise not to push my anarchist ideals of a self-governed society in this article too hard. Life outside the box is very possible in this day and age, and millions of people are discovering how.

turning dreams into reality

Life outside the box

These are exciting times, with loads of opportunities.  Life outside the box starts with some conscious decision making. Do you want the 9-5 job in a workspace that you do not enjoy?  For some people,  the answer might be yes. It takes some courage to leave your comfort zone and go against the grain. The life that our parents and grandparents lived in is a lot different than how it looks today.

Making the decision to break out of the box allows us to start living on our own terms. Life outside the box is all about self-discovery, fun, adventure, and freedom. Choosing an alternative lifestyle over the stressful existence our slave masters have designed for us is a no-brainer for me.

freedom is a choice

Weighing the options

If you are still reading this blog then you are in the company of like-minded people who naturally think outside the box. Life outside the box starts now! Most of us ‘free thinkers’ have dreams of travel, but are not sure where or how to start. There are numerous options out there, Your choice will depend upon your interests.

I can only recommend what appeals to me and many others that are wired the same way. My minimalist mindset would have me drawn to nature and not necessary an ultra-modern city. I do enjoy exploring cities, but for not more than a day or two. A lot of people are considering Portugal or Spain as a stepping stone in their plans of slow travel. Working as an English teacher is a perfect way of seeing the world. A premier TEFL course will help you qualify in most countries to teach English.

putting plans into motion

Goal setting

Life outside the box starts with setting SMART goals, Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timed goals. Once you have worked out the specifics, then put your plans in motion. Here are links to some great deals on flights and accommodation.

Achieving goals is so rewarding and provides us with the confidence to stretch ourselves and set even bigger ones. No matter how small the goal is that you wish to attain, don’t dismiss it. We need to practice at winning in life. Our whole lives, we have been programmed to fear stepping out into the world and taking responsibility for our future. We can’t rely on others for our happiness.
