Overview

How to find the courage to finally QUIT your soul-draining, life-sapping, energy-depleting, freedom-robbing job now...before it's too late..and live passionately ever after!

THE DEFINITION:
ducks in a row: Everything is ready, all preparations are complete..
To have everything just the way you want it before you take the next step.
usage example: "I definitely want to quit my job and pursue my passion, but I want to get all my ducks in a row before I hand in my resignation."

THE FLAW:
"I've never met a set of ducks who liked standing in a row for too long."

Sure, we've all seen ducks in a row. The trouble is, watch them long enough and they eventually break formation.

In other words, if you're waiting for things to be perfect and stay perfect for before you act on your dreams in general, and if your success quitting your job and becoming an entrepreneur in particular is contingent on those ducks staying in line for the duration of your adventure in freedom, you might be in for a rude awakening.

THE TRUTH:
"It's not about the freakin' ducks!! It never was and never will be."

If you make it about the ducks, then you've got to keep herding ducks every day of your life. On the other hand, if you practice taking action regardless of what formation the ducks are in, you'll be better prepared for the realities of life and business!

It's about finding the courage to do something you need to do whether the ducks are arranged the way you want them to be or not! It's your dirty little secret--a convenient excuse. And I'm going to expose it. The truth is, there ARE no ducks!!!


THE STORY:
"I felt like a piece of my soul was dying each day I showed up to work."

Many years ago, I walked away from my soul-draining, life-sapping, energy-depleting, freedom-robbing job as a civil engineer, to become a passionpreneur and nomadpreneur. In this second in the In Search of a Better Belief System series, I'll take you through the step-by-step mental, emotional and physical process of what it took to make that decision, hand in my resignation, burn that bridge, and walk away from my "good job" with no safety net and not even a penny in savings!

There was something in particular that gave me the courage to do it, and I'm going to share that with you in all its gory detail!

Something will click for you.
