book: An Evolved Human Being, “how to find your happy place!”
starting at a very young age i had the privilege to travel the world - my parents took my brother and i everywhere.  in my adolescent years i hated to travel!  i disliked leaving behind my friends and the comforts of home.  as i grew into an adult, leaving behind the need to “constantly be around people and places i’m familiar with” - i changed.  i slowly changed for the best!

growing up i was angry, depressed, lacked self-confidence, no drive, no focus…i was dumb - really unintelligent!  i had a hard time comprehending books, couldn’t’ spell, and had a very limited vocabulary.  AND, i was a compulsive complainer!

one day i woke up and decided, “i didn’t want to feel like this anymore - i DON’T want my EMOTIONS to dictate my LIFE!”  because it was draining to always be angry and sad - i hated the fact i had a hard time understanding, “how to be an adult?”  life doesn’t come with an instruction manual, it’s kinda like, “just go out there and see what happens.”

in 2002 (i’ve already been in business for myself for two years) i was working full time in corporate America and moonlighting as a real estate investor.  it wasn’t until the spring of 2002 is when my life truly began…i was introduced to the “expat lifestyle of Costa Rica!”  i’m not going to go over all the details - you’ll have to read that in my book;)

fast forward 12 years today, at the age of 40, i’m finally at peace and conscious of how to live every day with a smile on my face…i’m an exceptionally happy guy:)  this is all due to my choice to live most of my time in foreign countries like Costa Rica.  

there are many definitions of “success.”  the average person defines it as:
-  making a lot of money
-  having a big home and exotic cars
-  an attractive life partner
-  having children

the wealthy defines success as:
-  freedom & power

my definition of success:
-  elevated self-confidence minus arrogance!
-  a master decision maker
-  personal freedom of choice (meaning: no one dictates who you are or what you do)
-  mastering the skill of personal finance.  (meaning: you should take a more proactive approach to understanding your personal finances)
-  elevated self-control!
-  mastering one skill
-  mastering the skill of, “understanding human behavior”
-  open to change and capable of incorporating these changes to your benefit!
-  not blaming others (personal accountability)
-  controlling emotions like “anger,” “sadness” and “jealousy”
-  a drive to seek your own answers
-  a drive to understanding other cultures and incorporating the best of those foreign cultures into your personal life (and environment)
-  being polite and respecting your surrounding (people, animals, cultures, environment…)
-  a passion for learning new things
-  analyzing your past and making corrections for the present and future

and most important => success is understanding “how you tick.”  (most individuals refuse to fix their faults, instead, they would rather take the time in understanding others - that’s called a hypocrite!)  don’t be a “contradiction!  be an “evolved human being.”

as you can see my “definition of success” has nothing to do with material wealth, accruing things, or power over people.  i believe “success” is clearly defined by…

"are you truly happy?"  

most people can’t answer this simple question, “what makes you happy?”

this is who i am today:
-  i’m not angry, depressed or jealous
-  i never get lonely or bored
-  i have self control
-  i’m extremely intelligent and i can rapidly learn anything faster than most people
-  i’m physically fit and healthy  
-  i read an average of 4hrs a day…about everything!
-  i embrace change
-  i can drop anyone from my life that i feel is a negative influence
-  i can predict the behavior of people
-  i don’t get irritated
-  i don’t lie or cheat.  
-  i don’t “mind-fuck” people (i’m consistently the same person - all the time)
-  i’m a master decision maker
-  i am financially free because i’m proactive my finances and how they are invested
-  i’m a great listener (without the need to give advice)
-  i don’t complain nor am i opinionated (i’m careful with the battles i pick)
-  no one dictates my life!

not to give myself a “pat on the back,” but i know of no other individuals on a “personal” level that has made dramatic change in one’s emotional, mental, physical and financial life - such as i.  as an empowered human being, i urge you to spend more time in a foreign country - it’s better than any medicine out there!  and it’s inexpensive!

this is a brief preview of my upcoming book on how TRAVEL can “eliminate” everything that’s bad in your life, and how to transform yourself into the person you’ve always dreamed of…i will help you “find you happy place.” i will detail what countries to go and how to do this with very little money.  

i transformed myself from “loser - douchebag” to “one of the happiest individuals on this planet!”  i’m rich beyond my wildest dreams because…”i’m happy.”  and i’m confident you can do it too!

travel far and live well:)
