Retiring at the end of my life having worked a 9-5, day in-day out, for "the man" is my definition of the pits! I know it works for some, but not me. In the scheme of the universe, life is not long. I want to make every moment count. I want to experience everything that this life can possibly offer me before I move on to what’s next — whatever that is!
Back in 2014, I resigned from my 9-5 and took on the challenge of self-employment — probably the biggest personal development challenge you can possibly undertake. My experience has been rife with ups and downs, trying to find the right balance. But to get to the place where I am now makes it so worth it! This is how I did it.

What do you want from life? If you were able to write your own story as the author of your own novel, what would you write? Would it include what you are doing right now? Sometimes we get so caught up with the day-to-day routines of everything we need to do, have to do and should do, that we forget to look up and take in exactly where we are.
Those are the six steps to live a more fulfilling life. I’ve gone through this process twice now. Once when I was 19 and most recently this year. This process actually comes from Anthony Robbins’ Personal Power 2 program, which I’ve just started going through again. It’s amazing that it can still be so relevant 16 years later. I can say from experience that, although the process is quite time-consuming and requires a bit of effort, it is seriously worth the investment.
Off the top of your head right now, what are your top 3 towards-values?
