It means the world to me that you have taken the time out of your day to see what we are all about. I assume you are here because we have either inspired you in some way or we have been connected in some shape or form and you want to show your support and love. Again thank you and your only a visitor once. After today you are family.So who am I?
My name is Kevin Castillo. In the past , I always thought that in order to be successful you had to follow societies guidelines of go to school, graduate, go to college and take on a job afterwards that paid well and retire at the age of 72 if you are lucky. Growing up in school, I was a C and D student. I was told that if I did not get my grades up that I would not amount to much. I was always trying to please people and worried about the opinions of others. I was always aiming to please people. And where did all this get me? A very unfulfilled life. A life of stress and not being happy.
After high school, I always dreamed of being successful and having lots of money. I will admit, I was a job hopper. I chased the money because I thought that the more money I made, the happier I would be. I have always wanted more out of life.. Fast forward to today, and boy was i wrong. I am not against making a significant amount of money. I don’t care what you do or how much money you make. I want to know if it’s your calling.
Fast forward to today and I am far more educated on the fact that just because i didn’t make good grades and go to college, that doesn’t define who I will become or how my life will be influenced based on my decisions.
I have always been the odd one in the family. I don’t follow the crowd because I know that deep down if I follow the crowd, I won’t get much further than the crowd. In today’s world to be what others are not, it will require getting out of your comfort zone and doing things that others are not willing to do. Do today, what others aren’t willing to do, so tomorrow you can do what others can’t. I have always wanted more out of life. I just never knew what path to take to get there until i changed my circle of influence. The journey isn’t easy. I am still on this journey but I know it will all be worth it.
The major question you have to ask yourself, is what are you passionate about? What is something that you would jump out of bed for every morning? There is saying that goes ” I would rather work 80 hours a week than 40 hours a week”. What does that mean? It means that as long as I am doing what I love and am passionate about, no amount of hours matter because I am already doing what I love. Versus working 40 hours a week at a job that I don’t enjoy and am always looking at the clock and counting down the hours until I get off. Nothing against a job at all. Again, if it is what you are passionate about, than keep going. Life is about finding your purpose, building your legacy, and leaving your legacy.
The fact that I used to only see my wife for 30 – 60 minutes a day drove me completely insane. Don’t get me started with family. I saw them even less. Is this what society has programmed me for? This is not living. If you are in the same boat as me, guess what? You and I can change this. A big portion is alll about mindset and the people who we surround ourselves with. I am still on this journey and would love to share my journey with you and team up to get you on the same path as me. The path to more time and freedom.
I believe all of us are capable of becoming anything we want as long as we develop the right mindset and combine it with massive action.
Again… Remember, nothing happens overnight
This is what Epic Living is for. Closing in on your passion and what’s important to you. We all aspire to live a more Epic Life and so can you. Are you willing to make the necessary adjustments and sacrifices to live that Epic Life so that you can do more of what you enjoy and less of what you do not?
Enjoy the journey and never forget your why?
Epically yours,Kevin Castillo
