You don't have to do what I did, it was quite extreme! I sold everything I thought I needed to be 'someone'. I abandoned my 'self' to see what the world wanted me to be. Letting go was powerful. I worked very, very hard for everything I had but realising everything was impermanent gave me strength to say goodbye. I only have 7.5 kilos of belongings now.
Many people ask me how I managed to create a life i love, to find my purpose and leave the rat race behind. In the coming months I will be documenting my journey from depressed office employee to international artist. It began by commiting everything I had to my objective; to escape the 9 - 5.
I have made many sacrifices to achieve the life I live today but my methodology was highly effective and can be recreated by absolutely anyone. I left school with only a few qualifications and a good grade in Art.... It was clear my journey was going to be a creative one. If I can do it, anyone can do it.
You just have to make the choice. Do you want to live a life of purpose? Or instead hope that one day something will change by itself? Keep checking back as the story unfolds....
