Don’t Settle for Less When You Can Have Lake Chapala – Ajijic Mexico

July 24, 2014

Hi Everyone,

I’m writing because I’m worried that you’ve fallen into a dangerous trap.

A trap that derails a shockingly large number of people on the road to Lake Chapala – Ajijic.

The trap is “Settling for less”.

DO NOT SETTLE for less than you want !

You may be saying to yourself, “Lake Chapala sounds great, even exciting, but I can make it here in North America if we cut back some more, skip fancy vacations, and watch our pennies.”.. or something along these lines.

Others may be saying…”Well, I should be grateful for my retirement income and we’re getting by here OK. Lake Chapala is really just a dream..”

Lake Chapala – Ajijic was once just a dream for almost all of us that now live here, But, we took action … and NOW we’re living our dream.

Rather than taking action some of you may say, ” I’m grateful for our home here and at least we have a home when so many other people don’t.”

Nothing wrong with being grateful for what you have now. But, guess what?

There’s nothing wrong and everything right about being grateful.

Those of us who live here are all the more grateful now that we’ve moved to Lake Chapala.

I’ll single out just one of the many things I’m grateful for.

Now, I can afford a gardener to help me look after my beautiful property with lush fruit trees dripping with fruit and flowers all around.

Speaking of fruit, you’ll be amazed at the low cost of fruit here even if you live in a town house without a big garden. You can forget the high supermarket prices for the fruit you now buy or wish you could buy If the prices were lower.

I’m personally blessed to have a nice retirement income, so I don’t live here at Lake Chapala – Ajijic just to save on expenses as cool as that is.

No, I live here for the relaxed lifestyle, the great year around weather, the ease of travel (An International AP just 20 minutes from my house.), the friendly native people, and so many interesting things to do in and out of the large ExPat community here.

Now, before I close I want to share a motivational quote from one of my mentors Jack Canfield.

“Wanting more doesn’t mean that you’re ungrateful or greedy. It means that you acknowledge that you are the master of your destiny.”

Don’t be afraid to pursue your dreams because of what other people might think or say.

Once you do pursue a successful fulfilled life here at Lake Chapala – Ajijic they may at first think you’re a bit crazy.

That’s a common reaction from some friends or even family members… but then they come to visit you …

And their thoughts change from “thinking you were a bit crazy… to thinking you were being crazy like a fox”.

So, if you too want to be “Crazy Like a Fox”… I can help. I’ve helped more people than I can remember over the past decade to learn to be ‘Crazy Like a Fox’. Are you next?

You can be.

You can do it … and I can help.

Just send me an e mail to with the subject line “Crazy Like a Fox” … because I get a ton of e mails everyday, and I want your e mail to Stand Out, so I can answer it right away.

All for now, Tu amigo in paradise, Sid

P.S. If you have lots of questions send me an e mail to set up a personal phone call because often one question leads to another. Be sure and send me the best time to call you in the evening, your time zone and the best time for me to call you in your time zone.
