“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”
It doesn’t matter if your house, garage or list of accolades are expanding. What matters is that your courage, and in turn, your life are expanding.
More than anything else, changing your life is about courage. Do you have enough courage to defy societal norms, to “rage against the machine,” to live with less and to move in the opposite direction? Most people don’t have that kind of courage. But you aren’t most people.
Let’s go against the grain.
