The Million Dollar “Jungle Man”

Back in 2015, my friend and long time coaching client Chris Lopez and his wife Rosanna were fed up with their lives (and the school system) in Toronto, Canada.

And after a three month vacation to Costa Rica where they got a taste of what their lives could look like…

They decided to take a leap of faith and uproot their entire lives, moving to Puerto Viejo with their five (!) kids.  It was a scary transition at the time – especially because his business was not where it is today.

But that decision paid off BIG time.  Today… He lives right on the edge of the beach in a beautiful off grid home where he and his family have stunning views of the jungle and beaches… but no wifi.

A decision he and his wife made intentionally because it forces Chris and his family to unplug from the endless time-suck of the internet and be present for one another.  From 9am to 2:30 pm, Monday to Friday, he works from an office in their tiny town…

And when he’s done with his crazy short work week?

He spends the rest of his time with his family, teaching fitness and volleyball to the local teenagers, and travelling all around Costa Rica, enjoying the absolute best this life has to offer.

Chris claims the secret to his success is his disciplined morning routine that relies on my Perfect Day principles…

He starts his day with a 90-minute work block before checking email or social (just like I taught him to do years ago)…

And he ruthlessly eliminates distractions, temptations, and obstacles to guarantee he can focus on what matters most.  Because of this discipline and focus… Chris had his best financial year ever during one of the worst economies in recent history.  All while working less than 30 hours a week… from the beach… by the tropical green waters of Costa Rica.

So why am I telling you all of this?

Simple…

To remind you what’s possible for YOUR life.  If you’ll simply decide (with specificity) EXACTLY what you want and commit to making it happen…

There’s almost no limit to the future and lifestyle you can create for yourself and the people you love.  For Chris…

Creating his life of freedom, income, and impact all started by getting on a free coaching call (like the one YOU can claim by clicking here) where I shared a simple 3-step formula to help him create the life he wanted.

Those steps are:

1. Define Your Vision

Until you know specifically what your goals are you will never achieve them.  Spend time getting crystal clear on exactly what kind of life you want to live… where you want to live it… and who you want to live it with.  What does your day-to-day look like?

Chris and his wife Rosanna decided exactly where they wanted to be and what kind of lifestyle and education they wanted for their children.  If they just had vague desires for something “better”…

They never would have ditched the long, gloomy Canadian winters to go homeschool their kids in tropical paradise.  It’s having specificity that will guide your decisions and light the way.

2. Get a System for Success 

If you want to achieve success FAST…  don’t try to reinvent the wheel.  Instead, get guidance and hands-on coaching from someone who has “been there, done that” and achieved what you want to achieve.

People don’t believe me when I say this…

But getting rich isn’t rocket surgery.  It’s a simple math equation.  All you have to do is replicate what’s been proven to work.  You can put your own spin on it to mix it up a little bit…

But the closer you can stick to modeling other winners, the faster you will succeed.  Get their system… and follow it to a T.

3. Go ALL In

Once you have a crystal clear vision for what you want…

And you have a system to succeed…

You need to go all in and commit to making it happen.  Have conversations so your spouse, team members, business partner, or anyone else involved are all on the same page.

Avoid distractions and shiny objects that don’t serve your vision…

Chris and Rosanna were fully committed to making their move to Costa Rica…

They focused on actions and activities that brought them closer to that goal – and steered clear of anything that would pull them away from it.  Your sole focus during work hours each day must be successfully executing on reaching your goals.

Now if you just follow those 3 steps – in that order – you can absolutely design and live your perfect life.
