My “Ideal Day”. In Africa.

Jambo rafiki! 🙂

Imagine if you could REALLY “live” the life you’ve always dreamed of. Seriously, think about it?!

While this may sound like pure “hocus pocus” magic, what if dreams do indeed come true?

Look around. What do you see? Take a closer look, and you’ll realize our built environment is a direct result of imagination.

It all starts with an idea.

A single thought.

Like attracts like, and over time it literally manifests into our life.

So, yes. I’m a firm believer in the “I’m possible”. I also strongly believe dreams do indeed come true, provided you want them bad enough (and if they’re completely aligned with your true self).

Anyway, enough talking. Let’s put this to the test, shall we? And let me be entirely honest with you.

Don’t know about you, but I “really” want to change things in my life. And when I say “really”, I REALLY mean “really”! 🙂

I’m single (it’s been over 4 years). I’m struggling with finances. And I feel stuck (at least, that’s how I felt until very recently).

But enough is enough. I’m “sick and tired” of being “sick and tired”. No more hiding. No more excuses. You’re about to hear from the “real” Michael Theys. Authentic. And somewhat vulnerable. Who’ll do whatever it takes to change things for the better.

The exercise I’m about to share helps to literally think, and most importantly “feel” about your ideal life (and what a perfect day in that life looks like). Hopefully, it can also reset your expectations of what is “possible”.

For instance, what would a dream come true morning, work day, and evening be like?

Who would you be surrounded with, and in what kind of environment?

Can you visualize it?

Ready to take the plunge? 😉

Here’s my ideal day… The real question though is: What’s yours?

I want to hear from you. Life is too short not to follow your heart.

Tick-tock! Tick-tock! No need for an alarm clock!

I wake up full of gusto and enthusiasm, excited to go about my daily activities. Making a difference in people’s lives, and helping them understand the joys of the natural world.

I don’t live to do: I live to BE! To be who I am and share my passion for the African bush with the planet.

I am surrounded by nature. The spectacle of life unveils itself right before my eyes, from the comfort of my private deck overlooking the mighty river.

The bush is calling! Hop on, it’s safari time! I spend countless hours observing Mother Nature, learning from its rich heritage. I belong here. I am ecstatic to have found my place.

People from around the world flock to us to experience this magical land, full of wonder and peace.

We share. We laugh. We listen. Connected with our true self. Time stops as the circle of life unfolds under the African sun.

While hippos “play” a concerto, cheeky vervet monkeys swing from branch to branch in a joyous mood. Here I am: in the land of sunbathing crocodiles and sacred elephants.

I am at peace. Enthralled by life and what it has to offer. My heart is pounding in joyful gratitude. Huge tears of happiness flow over my cheeks. Is this a dream? I thank the Universe for my blessings and commend its greatness.

I have found love. With my soulmate in my arms only one word comes to mind: THANK YOU! Thank you for being alive. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to explore. To grow. To expand. To empower. To inspire and be inspired. To follow my heart. To push my own limits and understand the true meaning of life; filled with appreciation and service to others.

I am in awe. Life is beautiful and I know there’s still so much to look forward to. Can’t wait!

Now it’s your turn (share your thoughts of an “ideal day” in a comment below)! Are there things you’d like to change in your life? Then go for it! Take action. And follow your heart, it always knows better!

I’m excited to hear from you…

Why am I sharing this?

  • This exercise inspired me to take action, and I hope it ignites something within you too…
  • I recently joined a vibrant community of like-minded entrepreneurs with only one goal in mind: to help people succeed online and design the life they love! Describing my “Ideal Day” is part of the training, so I thought I’d share it with you guys. Here’s more info about this special community!
