Hello my name is Jake Miller
I’m here because I want to help empower you to live the life you want to live.
I know what it is like to have a successful life but still wake up every morning to a routine you despise. I’ve felt that urge to break out and do something radically different or meaningful.
You want this more than anything else, but you’re trapped – because it isn’t what you’re “supposed” to do. You have obligations and responsibilities that don’t seem to allow it.
I want to show you what I’ve discovered over the last few years – you can find fulfillment, act on your passion, and earn the happiness you deserve.
I spent my 20’s doing all the things I thought a good, responsible young man should do. I found a good job, married my high school sweetheart, bought a home, had a couple of kids, and moved my way up the career ladder.
Sure, I was often unhappy, but I was following the path that everyone told me would lead to a good life… someday.
My life took a dramatic turn March 30th, 2011. That was the day a doctor told me I had an infection that may kill me. I was rushed by ambulance to a hospital where I spent the night being poked and prodded in the ICU. Specialist were called to review tests and scans to see if I needed emergency surgery that night. Fortunately, my condition stabilized and the surgery was put off for a few days.
Two weeks after that horrible night, I was released from the hospital with an IV line in my arm and a constant stream of power antibiotics pumping into me. It took months of doctor visits, expensive prescriptions, and a couple of follow-up infections before I fully recovered.
Have you ever had a moment where something you thought you understood hits you like a ton of bricks at an emotional level? That’s how I felt when I got home.
Everyone says cliched things like, “You may be hit by a bus tomorrow” when talking about death, but they don’t appreciate what that really means. For the first time in my life, I understood – at a visceral level – I really could be dead tomorrow.
I was 30 years old and a freak infection almost killed me. I realized I couldn’t keep deferring happiness to the future because that day might never come.
Easier said than done, right? That simple contradiction took over my life – I needed to work towards happiness now but I couldn’t do the things that would make me happy because I had obligations to my family.
I’m an analytical guy, so the fact that I couldn’t figure this out drove me nuts! It took almost a year after my illness to stumble onto the answer that changed my life.
Do you know what the problem was?
Before my illness, I wanted to make changes but my little inner voice would always stop me. I was following an imaginary rulebook of life that defined my role in my family, that required me to have a house in the suburbs and a white collar 9-5 job. These were all made up requirements! I had created a prison of my own expectations. I wasn’t obligated to do any of it.
Once I accepted that fact, everything else started to fall into place.
I discovered that I could change aspects of my life that would allow me to meet my obligations and still be happy!
Turning it all around
Too often we live the life we’re supposed to live, not the life we want to live.
I have awesome news: life doesn’t have rules. You really can live whatever life you want.
The stumbling block for most people is your little inner voice. It holds you back, causes you to doubt yourself, and tells you why you can’t be happy.
What if I told you that your little inner voice could change from the bureaucrat or critic on your shoulder to your biggest ally and cheerleader?
Little Inner Voice exists to empower you to find your true passion, purpose and, ultimately, happiness! We do this by shifting perspectives and showing you how to make your little inner critic your biggest ally.
