What if you could dramatically change your life in a short period of time?
Instead of having small incremental comfortable changes, what if you could have high impact shocking to the system changes?
I remember it like it was today. The pain, the agony of watching life go by, the powerless feeling, the loneliness…
I was 18 years old and I’ve never felt more miserable in my life. That night was when I decided that I would change my life, that I would not be a victim of my circumstances anymore.
After many years of steady growth, I have hit a plateau, for some reason I felt miserable again. I felt that I had failed. I was not happy with my life, with my surroundings and with the people around me. I didn’t remember how it felt like to be so frustrated.
I dwelled on that pain for some weeks until I decided to change everything again. It wouldn’t be easy, but it was what I needed.
And being myself I demanded nothing less but the unreasonable: “What if I could change what I am used to change in 1 year just in 30 days?
That’s right, 30 days!!!
And so, for the next 4 weeks I looked closely at my life.
Checked to see what was working and what needed to change and I relentlessly altered the way I lived. I went through a period of such high stress that I felt like giving up, on some days I couldn’t sleep and on others I didn’t want to leave the bed.
It was a magical beautiful emotional rollercoaster. It felt like I was morphing into someone else, like I was leaving my old skin behind and embracing a new way of life. I was the first monkey being shot into space.
And so, I want to invite you to come with me on this journey. You can hold my hand if you’re scared, but if you commit to it, then it is to go all the way to the end.
I’ve never been good at slow prolonged incremental changes, not only because I am lazy but because I find it too easy to get back to old patterns. What I find way more productive and with proved lasting changes is to undergo a short but intense period of change, one in which you turn your life around and where there’s no turning back.
In a day and age where everybody is so considerate and reasonable, maybe what we need as a bit of noise, of letting ourselves go.
We were promised that if we kept quiet, if we did our jobs then everything would work out. We grew up being told that life was a meritocracy: study, work hard, be nice, have a nice job and you will have everything you deserve and want.
But we all know that it doesn’t work like that, now does it?
We ended up domesticated on this suburban, soul sucking environment of an imitation of life.
We trade adventure for comfort, we gave up our dreams for what?
For furniture, for a not-so-nice-car, for 1 week holiday at the beach?
We became a disappointment to our younger selves. What would you say to your 10 year old self? Would you say clichés like “Life gets in the way”?
So now, what can we do?
I tell you what you can do, you can decide to change your life. You can change your mindset of being a victim to a mindset of being who you want to be.
For years I’ve been working with men and women all through the world helping them to live their life purpose, to live their dreams and to find what is really possible.
The greatest limitation is not outside of yourself. Your greatest fear is that you are not good enough… it is that you get what you want and then you don’t know what to do with it. So you play small, so you decide that you are broken and need to be fixed, you go on seeking salvation and healing processes, and everything that you need is just to
Accept who you are and act on the present moment.
This way I designed a course, based on my own transformative experience, that can help you turn your life around in just 30 days.
No, it isn’t easy, but sure is simple and effective.
And I promise you, that by the end of these following 30 days you will have changed your life around, your mindset will not sabotage you anymore and you will find, once again, your path, your passion, your life!!
During these 30 days you will be focused in changing your life in 4 different but highly connected areas:
