If you want to the live the life you want to live, you must set up your life in such a way as to always have options.
Having options is all about not living beyond your means, and not forming attachments to stuff.
Keep your lifestyle simple. Avoid debt. Keep cash in the bank.
Eliminate your fears of losing stuff like your health, reputation, money.
Be anti-fragile. No matter if the coin shows heads or tails, you win.
Put yourself in a position to grab opportunity.
When you finally find your path, take it.
