Life Coaching/Formulating a blueprint for my life.


Hello. This will be a rather long message. But I feel it is important to illustrate where I am in life and also where I want to go.

I am a 31 year old man who has decided it is time to make the most out of his life and existence. I recently took a trip to a large city and was exposed to several things that has opened my eyes. During my few days there I met people from literally all over the world and from all walks of life. This trip opened my eyes to my deep felt desire to travel the world but to also fully develop myself to be all that I can be.

I am emailing you to seek your help, wisdom, and advice in forming a blueprint on getting getting to where I want to be in life, fully developing my potential, and accomplishing my dreams.

These are some of the things I've decided to do immediately:

1. I am beginning a healthy eating and exercise routine to get in the best physical shape I can be in.

2. I am looking for some sort of social activity at least once a week (possibly martial arts) to help me better develop my social skills.

3. I am going to contact other experts for advice on a career path that will allow me to travel on a regular basis and provide financial security.

4. I am saving money to facilitate future trips to other cities to help me move towards my goal of seeing the world and also provide me the opportunity to travel my home country (United States) while I work towards seeing the rest of the world.

That said, what advice or critique would you have? I am welcome to any wisdom, suggestions, etc. you have.

Also, if you have any questions or need more details to better answer my questions, please let me know.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks


I am so very impressed with what you have set up so far. I wish more people had a plan in any way shape or form. What you have set up is the first steps I take all my clients through so you need to start here with what you have outlined. About 9 months in to this journey write me back and I will give you your next steps.

You should be proud of what you have realized this early in life!
