Attention: People who want to travel but can't get started… Travel offers one big benefit.
What benefit? This benefit – the knowledge that you don't have to stay in the same spot you are in right now.
You can simply go where you actually want to go and be where you want to be.
You don't have to stay and decay, you can go and grow as you wish.
And because of the internet, it's easy, easy, easy. I'll show you how easy…
I used to travel all the time. I would change spots every 3-4 weeks quite often.
Even when I had a one year lease, I would still travel once every month or two.
I had a real bad case of wanderlust. I'd get bored in the same spot.
So what did I do? I spent a long time traveling, always looking for a new rush or trying to find “my place” in the world.
I've found my place now, I'm very happy with it and I'm here to stay.
Now that I've found the perfect spot for me, I don't even want to leave!
The bored travel bum with wanderlust now doesn't even want to leave the city.
What made that possible? Travel made it possible. It took years of travel to find the spot where I truly want to be.
I never would have found my favorite place to live had I not scoured the earth first looking for it. For me, travel was essential.
I feel for many of the B&D soldiers, travel offers the same benefits and these are my tips to help you find your #1 spot in the world.
How to Find Freedom in a Totally Free World
See my thoughts about travel in this video (transcription available below the video).
Hey, guys. V. Pride here. Yesterday I released a video talking about three ways to stop feeling depressed.
And a guy that worked for me emailed me and said, “Loved the video, but I want to know what is your mission because I don't know what your mission is.” And I said…
“My mission is to show other people how to be free.”
That's my mission in life. To show other people how to ‑‑ if they want ‑‑ how to be a professional bum like me.
How to live that “Airbnb” life like me. How to travel and go where you want to go and do what you want to do when you want to do it like me.
(FYI – Airbnb has since stolen money from me and I will never stay with them again and I do not recommend anyone use Airbnb.)
Now you don't have to be a traveling bum like me. It's just what I choose to be.
Your freedom ‑‑ you choose to do what you want to do.
If you have the freedom you can choose to do it.
Me, I don't like staying in the same place for too long. I really don't.
I like three weeks in place. I find four weeks to be too long. But you often get a discount when you rent for four weeks instead of just three weeks.
So I often just power through and rent for four weeks at a time. But you know, not really relevant to what I'm talking about.
What I'm talking about is living life on your own terms. Being free in the way that you should be free.
It's the current year. It's not 1965 anymore.
Nobody is limited by jobs. You're not limited by geography, location.
You should not be limited by anything.
You can make money from Antarctica.
You don't have to stay in the same city you were born in.
You don't have to stay in any city if you don't want to. I just pick up and go.
I was in Wichita, Kansas visiting an old friend of mine from way, way back in the day from when we were about 10 years old.
He's been in the same city forever and I haven't. I was talking to him and he asked me what I was going to do next.
I said, “I don't know. Whenever I feel like I'll just hop on a plane and go back to Bangkok.”
And he goes, “Oh, oh, you'll just hop on a plane, huh?”
And I thought, Yeah. That's exactly what I'm going to do.
It's hard to believe for a lot of people who don't live the pro‑bum life like I do… But you don't have to be stuck.
You don't have to stay in the same place, man. You don't have to.
If you do it it's because you choose to, or because you don't know that there's another option. And that's a valid excuse. I didn't know for a long time.
I didn't know. I didn't grow up knowing you could go travel to places. My family didn't take vacations.
We didn't leave the country. Our vacation was to go and see grandma in Colorado or go to see grandma and grandpa in New Mexico.
We didn't have real vacations. We certainly were never going to leave the United States. That was crazy.
I didn't know that was possible. I didn't even know you could move to a place like Los Angeles.
If you grew up in a place like Kansas where I grew up, it's not really ‑‑ nobody leaves. Nobody leaves to go to Los Angeles or even Thailand. They leave for the military.
And then they come back and they stay there and they drink alcohol and they eat a lot of food and they get fat.
But that doesn't have to be your life. It's your life, your choice.
The internet can make it all possible.
Until next time.
