7 small behavioral changes that will put you in the top 2% of people

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the world is unpredictable.

There is no one place you can reliably settle down and know with confidence that life is not going to go downhill at any point.

This isn’t for everyone, but if you want long-term security and freedom, the choice to live the way you want, and maintain your sanity, then you need to read this.

Here are 8 small behavioral changes that will put you in the top 2% of people:

1. Think of a mobile phone.

Start by getting comfortable with living more than ten miles away from your parents.

The planet is very vast.

You have to start thinking about leaving, be loose, flexible, and develop self-reliance.

2. Living light.

We live in an age that rewards those who don’t have a lot of stuff that they have to keep carrying.

Make like Marie Kondo and drop anything that doesn’t spark joy. But most importantly, get rid of unnecessary belongings so you can rush if you need to get out of dodge.

You have to think like a soldier.

If you need heavy items, arrange for storage and go for rentals whenever possible.

Everything I own fills two large bags.

3. Maintain a sound mind.

No place is safe if you can’t manage your mind.

This is solvable and learnable. It starts with fitness and sleep.

Next, you have to master getting rid of unhelpful thoughts, so that you can move forward with bold action.

4. Create remote income.

If you want to live flexibly and not be tied to any one place, you need location-independent sources of income.

I’ve lived in several countries, maintained a remote income for the past 12 years, and loved every aspect of that freedom.

This has become more possible with remote working in companies, but even this is very strict.

Relying on one boss, who can bring you down at any moment, due to having too many clients or clients, is a much bigger risk.

Learn a skill you can do anywhere, such as copywriting, sales, web design, life coaching, consulting, educational workshops, editing, research, etc.

Over time, you want to develop multiple flows for more security.

5. Live in multiple locations.

“Settling down” geographically is a thing of the past if you are a sane person at that age.

We are going through a paradigm shift where long-term attachment to one place puts you at a disadvantage.

I am a British citizen currently resident with a ten year residency in Poland setting up multiple residencies in places such as Dubai, Asia and Armenia in the coming years.

No place is ever truly safe.

6. Build an audience.

One of the best assets you can build in this day and age is an online following, ideally in the form of newsletter subscribers – an asset you fully own.

These people will become customers, buy your products, provide ratings and reviews, give you a couch to sleep on in a foreign land, mentor you, collaborate on joint projects, and show up at random barbecues in a strange city.

7. Be physically elite.

If you want to stay loose, active and mentally sharp for as long as possible, this is it It’s time to free yourself from the masses of mediocrity and excess.

Push through the barrier of resistance that compliance imposes on you.

You need to overcompensate in a world made weak, rise above groupthink, and truly thrive.
