As much as I despise how commercial Christmas has become, the underlying concept of giving is something really wonderful.
But as I wish you a Merry Christmas, I am already looking ahead a week – New Year’s Day.
I’ve never made a New Year’s resolution, but many people do. Instead of choosing a typical resolution, I am issuing a challenge to you.. Make your resolution to spend 2012 focusing on taking the plunge!
If you are reading this blog, something brought you here. Perhaps a Google search, maybe you know me offline, maybe via one of my interviews. Regardless, I hope have been enjoying the stories and experiences I share here. But these stories and experiences all trace back to my decision earlier this year to take the bull by the horns, decide to be happy, and leave my comfortable corporate life to take the plunge into a life I designed full of my passions.
I ask you, what do you have to lose?
The world will be ending in December 2012 anyway, right? So why not go through the self-discovery process I call The Happiness Plunge to better know yourself, your potential, and your purpose? If the world doesn’t end, you’ll already be well on your way to living a happier, healthier life.
If this seems like a waste of time or impossible, I can promise you that in July 2010, when I got the job offer with Siemens, I couldn’t have been farther from where I am in life now. I never would have guessed that eight months later I’d start this blog, submit my resignation, and then start traveling the world as a Happy Nomad. But here we are.. in Venezuela currently!
Change is possible. Just get it started!
If you haven’t done so already, you can sign up for my weekly newsletter and I’ll send you an e-book I wrote outlining The Happiness Plunge process. It’s only a few pages.
Ok, it’s Christmas. Just download the book here!
Give the e-book a read over the next week. Let it sink in. And when January 1st comes around, you’ll be able to hit the ground running with your resolution instead of trying to figure out what resolution you want to set (and then break soon thereafter!).
Merry Christmas once again, and have a great holiday season!
About Adam Pervez
In mid-2011 I left my cushy corporate job and took the plunge into a life incorporating my passions of traveling, writing, volunteering, learning, educating, and telling stories. I study what happiness means to others, offer what I can from my engineering/MBA background as a volunteer, and try to leave each place better than how I found it. Read more.
