Welcome to Live Limitless.
For those who are new to the game, this site used to be called A World of Inspiration. It was a fun site based mainly around travel and it introduced me to a lot of people who I now call friends.
At the same time, I was never truly in love with that title. Since a blog like this tends to blend in with it’s “writer’s” personality, I felt I needed to come up with something that means a lot more to me.
A World of Inspiration sounded just a little too oprah-ish.
Then one night when I was talking to my fiancé, she began to ask what I was like before I met her.
See, she met me in late 2008, just before I left to Australia on my first solo 6-month trip. Before that, and especially prior to 2004, I was a middle-class kid growing up in an oil-rich town in Northern Alberta.
Everyone around me made six figures and it was easy. I grew up basically knowing my salary would be over $100,000 with little to no schooling and my dreams consisted of following the joneses and buying a big house, a truck, a cool car, a boat, a snow-mobile, a quad, and taking part in those pre-fabricated all-inclusive holidays that many people were enjoying at the time.
That’s really it. Nothing wrong with it I suppose but then something changed. I began to think bigger. I wondered what it would be like if I didn’t work for oil companies like everyone else. I wondered what it would be like to really discover my strengths and talents and do something more remarkable. Something so cool that a book could be written about it. What would happen if I just left my town and setup shop somewhere else? Could I do something like that?
