Becoming Fearless Days #6 & 7 – Lifestyle Design: Letting Go of Your Conventional Lifestyle and Embracing Freedom
Erika Awakening update as of July 2014: We are going to start focusing more on lifestyle design for location-independent entrepreneurs. Prior posts like this one were already moving in the direction of helping people who want more freedom design a lifestyle they love! :)Yesterday I rode again with Alejandro and Roland on the crazy highways of Costa Rica to reach my second destination at the Pura Vida Spa high in the hills above San Jose, Costa Rica. I still remember the days when drives like this scared the crap out of me, and I would clench up and hold my breath. Thailand and Tijuana are two memorable places where the roads were insane. I’m so much more trusting now. Even though Roland was texting while driving and there were unmarked obstacles all over the highway, lol, I just did the surrender thing. My life purpose is not fulfilled yet. I am going to be here in earthly form for a while, and I am perfectly safe.
Today this pool is my office. I have WiFi and even an electrical outlet, and I’m chilling by the pool to write this blog post. I’ve been passing out my business card left and right, and I really want to ask you: can you imagine a more fun way to make a living? Seriously. This is what lifestyle design for location-independent entrepreneurs and digital nomads is all about :)
Now remember, it was only two short years ago that I had a “normal” job. Normal jobs feel like prisons, and yet they can be so hard to leave. People tried to convince me that it was insane to give up subsidized health care and all the other “safety nets” of a conventional life. But when you get a taste of real freedom, it becomes addictive. And eventually the lure of safety and “fitting in” no longer has any power over you. That’s what Becoming Fearless is all about, you know.
Prisoners bound with heavy chains for years, starved and emaciated, weak and exhausted, and with eyes so long cast down in darkness they remember not the light, do not leap up in joy the instant they are made free. It takes a while for them to understand what freedom is.

Now there’s a temptation for people who want to quit their jobs, or have just quit their jobs, to constrict financially. They operate under the belief that not having a job means having a much less comfortable lifestyle. And I would urge you not to buy into this belief. I have made MORE money in the last two years as a coach and blogger than I did as a lawyer. Yes, it’s true.
You really can design your own lifestyle and take one baby step at a time toward being a totally free, location-independent entrepreneur or digital nomad. The advanced EFT tapping tools that I teach will vastly ACCELERATE this process of freeing yourself from the rat race!Today I took all my laundry to the front desk to be laundered for me. I barely even looked at the price. I still remember my first international trip with my boyfriend for 30 days around Europe. We were both living in a world of financial scarcity at that time, and I bet we only did laundry once the entire trip lol. Now I simply am not going to live with damp and mildewing clothes when it’s so easy to How to Attract Money with EFT Tapping.
Meanwhile, on the home front, my cats are very happy with the Cat Whisperer, who is the guardian of my home office while I am away …
Wouldn’t you like to have this much freedom in your lifestyle? You can. Anyone can. To do this, all those fears that whisper in your ear (or scream inside your head) must be faced. The limiting beliefs must be let go to make becoming a location-independent entrepreneur or digital nomad a reality. You’ve got to stop buying in to the idea that your “safety nets” are helping you. They’re not. They are prisons. You got to stop “playing it safe” – emotionally, financially, socially, physically …
Get inspired by my new friend Sofia, who had a heart attack at the tender age of 36 a year and a half ago. They gave her a “one percent chance” to live afterward. Like me after my near-death experience, she understood that she got a second chance at life and she was not going to let it go to waste. She has learned new healthier lifestyles and was courageous enough to travel to Costa Rica and go on adventures that many would think “impossible” in her situation.
You are here living a life that has the potential to be amazing. Do you really want to spend your days in a dismal office behind a computer when you could be sitting by a pool in Costa Rica? Do you really want to work at a job you hate when you could create a job you love?
