#4: Learn how you can cut out years of waiting and bring your dream to you today through projects. Let's put together the 5-step pattern that can help you be happier. This is a method and methodology Richie put together over the last 9 years to help people get jobs, quit jobs, create jobs, become entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, freelancers or whatever they want. The goal? Create an environment where your work supports your dream and your dream supports your work. Lifestyle is an intentional art. Learn how to live life on your own terms. You don’t have to live your life tiptoeing around selfish, hidden-agenda-driven, crab-bucket, talk-behind-your-back, weasel people. You just don’t. At work, church, home or play — seek people who embody the future you want and surround yourself with loving influences. You deserve that circle of inclusion and influence, but it’s up to you to create it. Freedom, influence and impact first, expansion second. Live to support your lifestyle, don't live to support your work.
