Q4 2018: A Place In The Sun

I learned a big lesson this week.

You can be at the right place at the right time but still fail.

I laugh at the quip I once heard: 

Life for the most part is actually quite easy… what makes it difficult tends to be other people! 🙂 

None the less… I’m grateful for every lesson and take full responsibility for every eventuality. 

I’m more empowered by doing so. 

I feel invigorated, focused like never before, and optimistic about my direction. 

I know what I want, I see it, and can almost feel it — as if it were present right now. 

Isn’t that the way of ‘The Secret’? 

I’m progressing in my plans to open a workshop centre. 

A place for all manner of people to attend experiences that will push them to face their personal limitations, in a supportive environment where integrity is more important than excuses. 

A place in the sun. Earthy. Light hearted and jovial at times. Sombre and sobering at others. 

You may know the childhood book ‘Chicken Licken’ in which the Hen claims that ‘the sky is falling’. 

Or perhaps you’re familiar with Joseph Schumpeter’s notion of ‘creative destruction’. 

Either way, the geopolitical tensions that appear to be mounting in different parts of the world are not going to simply dissolve easily. 

We are in for one hell of a storm. 

And you need to be prepared: emotionally, physically, intellectually, spiritually. 

Don’t know what I’m talking about? Think things will just carry on as normal? Feel your life is stable enough not to be affected? 

Oh think again mon’amis. Think again. 

The complacency and ostrich behaviour of burying your head in the sand by ignoring the signs puts you and loved ones at risk.

The Euro appears to be heading towards the trash can of history. And that means turmoil in the markets. And that means financial pressures. And that means hardship, anguish, and confusion. 

But look on the bright side. A new financial system is building alongside the old, preparing to replace it when needed. That system is based on cryptocurrency. Which is the use of encryption to protect the rights and privacy of people freely exchanging with one another — free of governments and banks.

We are living in exciting times. And opportunity is overflowing. Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum and literally hundreds of other projects are progressing increment by increment towards a new era of value creation and exchange.

“I love my life” — time for relife4

It’s been a long time since I felt like shouting those words.

When things feel right, purposeful, with a clear path ahead, and learnings absorbed from the past.

Despite the strains of a coercive social order, and lunatics running the asylum, progress and opportunity remind me how much I love life.

June 1st 2018 marks the turn of a new leaf.

A project I’ll call relife4.

I’ll be traveling again… but this time deciding on a new long-term home in Central America to live healthy, free, and in collaboration with innovators of blockchain decentralisation.

Updates to follow.
