What Would You Do if Money Was No Object?

Sup guys, it’s Ellie back with the blog form of Fuck The Status Quo Podcast. I don’t know if anyone else does this but a lot of times I find myself sitting or laying down with my eyes closed and just thinking. Thinking about life, thinking about my next steps, thinking about my goals and dreams and what I want to accomplish. And sometimes I’ll sit there for hours sometimes just deep in thought.

And I found myself in one of these moments the other day, as I was worrying about the logistics of starting a social media management agency and where I want to be a year from now, five years, and so on. And this led to me asking myself, “Hey, forget about the money … forget about all the other noise … what would you be doing if money were no object? Where would you be? How would you spend your time? What would be important for you? What would you create?” 

And when you think about things this way, it pushes all the other bullshit aside. All the other thoughts of, “Well, I SHOULD do this” or “THIS is going to make the most money so I do that.” A lot of times, I get caught up in the numbers. I wanna make this amount and then I take a moment and sit back and I’m like, “Well, why? How much do you really need? What is it that you want to do?”

And I’m not saying livin’ is cheap, you guys. But after living in 4 states in less than 8 years … you tend to throw a lot of shit away and care less about material items because, well, they’re a pain in the ass to move across the country.

So think about it … what would you be doing if money was no object? If you knew you could not fail? If you could just sit there and say, this is what I want to be doing for the rest of my life and I would be content, better yet, happy with that. What is it? What does your life look like?

Get really clear on this, picture all the details. How you feel, dress, look, act, what time you wake up, what you eat, all the things.

And then, ask yourself, if you really care about trying to live your life like this. Ask yourself, what is step 1? What can I do today or this week to get me one step closer to that life? Take some fuckin’ action towards it.
