Visionaries Make Their Dreams Come True.
It is so important to follow your dreams, create a vision, and take actionable steps to make those dreams come true. If you do you will never have any regrets. However, if you don’t make your dreams come true you will always live life with regrets and wonder what could have been. We stopped dreaming and started a vision. We took action and followed our vision to live full time in an RV while traveling the country so that we could be free.
As Walter R. Muller once said, “The difference between visionaries and dreamers is that visionaries make the dreams come true.” That’s exactly what we decided, we wanted our visions to come true and we were finished dreaming about it.
Have you ever noticed that those who have become very successful in life have made many failed attempts but yet they never gave up? Those who always act upon their visions seem to always end up making their dreams come true.
Is your vision to travel full time in an RV and explore the country? If so, then you should do It! Why? Because it is your dream and your vision. We are not telling you to jump right in without taking any actionable steps. What we are telling you is to start as soon as you can, while you can and do it with no regrets.
If you want to live full-time in an RV traveling the country, then start your planning and don’t procrastinate. Start downsizing and get rid of what you can do without. That alone was such a huge relief and took away a big burden off of our shoulders when we did this. It was hard at first but what a relief it was to downsize. We were surprised by all the things that we didn’t need.
Step 1: Take a Deep Breath
You are not the only one that’s been on this “roller-coaster” ride. Fear is a natural feeling that we all have but it is ultimately up to you to decide if you will let fear take control. Don’t allow it to take away your visions from becoming reality. This is your life and your vision so don’t leave yourself thinking, what if? By moving forward with your plans you will always be glad you did.
Step 2: Start Doing Your Research
By this time many of us have already started our research. Now is the time to get more serious. Start looking for the type of home (RV) that you will want to live in. Research and discuss the pros and cons of each type of RV. For example: is it important for someone to be able to get up and walk to the restroom without stopping somewhere? If so then a motorhome may be your best choice. Some fifth wheels have slides that cover some inside areas when traveling. Those models do not have access to some areas while traveling. Is it important to have an RV with less to worry about? If so, then an Airstream may be your best choice. Do you not want more of a spacious home feeling? A fifth wheel may be your best choice. Do you want a tow car that gets good gas mileage while you are exploring? Do you need a more self-contained RV? Do you plan to stay in RV resorts and campgrounds or do you prefer dry camping with no hookups? There are so many factors to be considered.
Step 3: Share your Idea
Don’t be afraid to share your ideas with others. One thing that surprised us when we started sharing our idea was the number of people that had the same idea or they knew someone that did. We were blown away by the number of people! By sharing your idea, not only will you realize how normal it is but it will inspire you, even more, to move forward with your plans.
Step 4: Set a Date
When you have set a date for a goal it holds you accountable. If you have decided to sell your house, don’t procrastinate and start the process.
I was a realtor myself and I know that the one thing that scares people is: “What will I do if our house sells before we’re ready to move?”
Here are a few options:
We truly hope this helps. Safe travels, Visionary!
