When we set out to create this "dream life" that we're now living, we didn't really know what we were doing. For us, it was a bit like jumping off of a cliff. Sure, we were fairly evolved guys with good heads on our shoulders, but – with only modest savings – we left our jobs and leaned into a healthy dose of uncertainty.
It was thrilling.
It was scary.
So, with our only promise to each other being that we wouldn't careen into recklessness, we let the transformation begin. It started with heavy travel, volunteering, and self examination and has since grown into so much more.
Now, we're living the dream life that we set out to build; we call it – no surprise! – our No Vacation Required life.
The "how" of it all is what we get asked about more than anything. How did we eschew the easy route and get on purpose? How did we overcome the gravitational pull of quick fixes and create a dream life?
We're not always down with how the the "self help" industry goes about influencing people seeking change, so we've been reluctant to dole out too much advice. Before jumping into the arena we knew we wanted to jettison the all-to-common, fear-based message that sells change by saying "you're not good enough."
Why? Because the truth is: You are good enough.
True fulfillment – your own version of a NVR life – comes from within. The more you know yourself and the more you access what you're all about, the better able you are to put your finger on what you're meant to be doing.
