This episode is a continuation of episode 4. You may want to go back and listen to 4 first. However, if you like your listening order to be more like a crossword puzzle then be my guest by all means.
This episode, Part 2 of 2, is about having hope in your change up so I talk about the need to stabilize environments to free yourself up to do what you want instead of what you have to do. Really this means trimming the fat out of your life. After reading “The Four Hour Work Week” by Timothy Farriss I learned that you don't need all the things you think you need to live happily. Additionally, one of Tim's go-to books for this is by his recommendation, called "Vagabonding" by Rolf Potts.
I explain one of my longtime sayings that helps me to understand why some things seem to be clearer to those who are not a the center of the issue by discussing the "Forest for the Trees Effect" as well as why motivation seems evades most of us by describing "The One Man, One Leg Butt Kicking Contest Principle" where opportunity and change widely avoided by us as we seek to achieve a better life.
