I’ve observed that a lot of people have conditional goals or nice to have goals. Things that they’d love to achieve if they could maintain their current lifestyle.

And it’s this mentality that’s holding a lot of people back from achieving their stretch goals.

Bill Gates didn’t take a single day off for a decade while he was building Microsoft.

And while I’m no Bill Gates, I’ve had months with 12+ all-nighters, and I’ve spent most of the last decade dodging social obligations to work on my businesses.

Shifting from “I’ll sacrifice some things” to “I’ll sacrifice everything” has been my critical mindset change.

When you decide that you will not fail and that you will do whatever it takes to achieve your goals. That’s when you’ll achieve unfathomable success.

This isn’t the path for everyone, but extraordinary achievement comes with great sacrifice.

I've been building digital businesses, wandering the world, and writing about optimizing life for freedom since early 2017. My mission is to lower the barrier for people who want to live with more freedom: whether that be as an entrepreneur, a digital nomad, an early retiree, or just as someone who wants to live a happiness-driven life.
