What I Would Do If I Had A Million Dollars

For a long while now I've been pondering about my life. Where do I want to go, and what do I want to do? Well for the past three years or so I've had a burning desire to help people and it all started with this blog and my YouTube channel.

I found that it was what I wanted to do with my life, and I truly give credit to all of the wonderful people that reached out to me throughout the years. They came to me for advice, and would tell me how their life had changed in someway because of a post that I wrote, a video that they saw, or they receiving personal help individually. This has changed me as a person, and made me realize that I want to continue down this path.

I'm reminded of one of the 6 basic human needs in life, and that's Contribution. We desire to give something of value, and to help others or make the world a better place in some way. I have found more value in doing this over the past few years than anything else, and want to continue dedicating my life to it.

So here's what I would do when I get the money. I'm not sure how, or when it will come about, but that's not important. All I know is that I'll look back to this post one day and say, "It's happening!"

Where the money would go:

#3. Dealing with my loan debt first, so that I can focus on projects and others. - This would free me of my burden so that I can continue forward. I don't want to worry about the past, and I won't because this will all be taken care of in due time. It will be a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. That way I can continue to focus on future projects that will inspire and help others.

#2. Take most of the ads down from this blog and my YouTube channel. - Currently, this is true for most bloggers and YouTubes as well, ads are the way that I can earn a living doing this type of work. It takes a lot of time and hard work to build up enough to live on, and that can mean a lot of ads. So taking most of them down is definitely part of the plan.

#1. Travel the world and help people. - This is the big one. With this money I would travel around and help others for free. If I'm financially stable there's absolutely no reason to charge, and besides, I'm a minimalism so stuff is not important to me. I go to bed with this thought, and I wake up with it in the mornings. "How can I help others today, and how can I work towards this ultimate goal?" I'm not concerned about the money, it will come in some shape or form. I'm determined to see it manifest.

This is my purpose, and I will make it happen.
