FIRST THINGS FIRST.
You have likely heard me mention “The Pioneer Lifestyle” and are wondering what the heck that is!
THE PIONEER LIFESTYLE IS A WAY OF THINKING, ACTING, AND LIVING.
You will know if you’re a Pioneer firstly, by how you think. You’re always challenging the “norm”, pushing limits, and pursuing true lifestyle instead of what others have tried to convince you of. You’re interested in accomplishing your goals and can’t imagine living a miserable life forever. Your goal is conquering life, not constant struggle.
It’s the thought “I can have whatever I want.” Not “I can’t.” It’s an abundance mentality.
As modern Pioneers we have a choice, to be the ones who set trends in this world or just follow what has been done for years.
“I truly believe that the pioneer spirit has been lost. That’s exactly why I started talking about the “Pioneer Lifestyle” , we’re going to find it again.” – Tony Campisi
By living a life you have intentionally planned and created you will inspire many others to do the same, because, believe it or not, most people aren’t doing that…
Pioneers are innovative thinkers, constantly questioning “Is this the best way, or can we do it better?”
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
– Steve Jobs
Here is an example.
“Go to school, get good grades, work hard, retire.” This is the lifestyle trend of the last one hundred years and beyond. This magic formula has been said to be the key to “The Good Life”.
A Pioneer doesn’t want to hear, “Well that’s just how it is.”
Pioneers say, “Is “how it is” really working? If not, I’m not waiting for someone to change it, I’m going to change it.” – TC
Current trends like the ” go to school, get good…” are all encompassing, and define the way we think, act, and live life. It will change where you live, how you treat people and how much you truly enjoy life.
Are trends like these keeping you from truly living your calling in life?
Have you ever asked yourself why so many people who follow the current finance, education, fitness, lifestyle, and religious trends are living such miserable lives?
Why do so many relationships struggle?
Why is everyone broke?
Why is everyone sick, tired, and out of shape?
Could it be we have lost the pioneer spirit? The idea that we can think for ourselves and create the life we really want? Have we gone from trend setters just to trend followers? In other words, have we stopped creating our lifestyle and allowed circumstances to create it?
Has television and media taken over the influence of our nation? Does anyone think for themselves anymore?
Pioneers do, and will lead and inspire thousands just by making small, seemingly insignificant changes in their life everyday.
Pioneers are not interested in living the life others have created, they are trail blazers, the first to do something, and inspire others to follow.
This is the Pioneer Lifestyle.
