Everyday I wake up early and dedicate the first hour of the day to inspiration, discovery and creativity. I allow the unpredictable pull of my imagination to take me wherever it pleases. I often end up developing some far-fetched ideas, or as google’s founder Larry Page calls them “moon shots”. My mind naturally steers in this direction because I believe the world is full of possibilities and moon shots are within reach.
A couple years ago I woke up feeling an urge to create something unlike anything else, something that would inspire like-minded adventurers. Not knowing quite what it was or where to start, I decided that everything would fall together after thinking of the perfect name. After thinking up several terrible names like “Pretty Much Amazing” and “Goosebumps”, I thought of the name “Live Unbound”. I started by drawing a little picture to represent what the word meant to me (see below). Then I began writing what later became the LiveUnbound Manifesto and decided to create a series of videos to illustrate it. For me this was a moon shot because I was never a good writer, I had no funding and little time to devote to creative ventures.
Two years later the LiveUnbound message has reached millions of people and has given me the chance to live my dream. The dream of making a living through my creativity, traveling the world and creating positive impact.
Extraordinary things happen when you give yourself the opportunity to live in accordance with the boundless nature of our existence.
