The shame is that in a great many homes both parents have to work to pay the bills, which leaves our kids to be raised by teachers, tutors, the TV and babysitters.
There is another way…
If you’re ready to take the bull by the horns, to exercise the freedom of choice that is yours for the taking, start here with 10 simple and very freeing words
Here’s a news flash: We are born free!
So why do we end up taking a J.O.B. trading our time for dollars?
It is the path of least resistance… a choice born of fear.
And that’s natural.
I talk about this in my podcast from time to time. I interview lots of guests who left jobs to pursue their goals because they had the freedom… just like you… to do so. Here’s a good one that tells how one man chose to put fear aside to come to a country he didn’t know to create a product we all know well today:
Don’t give fear the upper hand!
Hey, it’s easy to let fear to take the helm and keep you from taking steps to free yourself from a dissatisfying 9-to-5 life.
Fear tells you that you can’t take another path.
Fear whispers in your ear that you can’t possibly figure out a path…
… that if you go for your dreams you won’t be able to feed your family.
Fear is that negative voice you hear in your head that if you succeed your friends will no longer like you, that you won’t look good while learning, or that you’ll be embarrassed if you try something and fail.
What then? (Or maybe I should say… SO WHAT?)
I talk about this topic a lot, too.
It comes up in episode #6 of my podcast. You should listen to it:
You can’t let fear stop you from anything.
If you do, you trample on the rights you have to choose a different path… and the life you really want.
Or maybe you think that the most successful entrepreneurs, business owners, inventors and big brains of the world are never afraid.
No… we all have fear. Even them.
The only difference between them and you is that they learned to control their fears instead of letting their fears control them by acting on their desires anyway.
They made the choice because they have the freedom to do so to stand for something.
So why not you?
Truth is that when we are afraid to stand for something it often means that we feel like we have to give way to what we think… what we’ve been taught since childhood… is the way things are supposed to be.
Is your life the way it’s supposed to be?
Is it the way you want it to be?
If not, you have the freedom to choose something different, to learn something new, and to try out new skills.
But this freedom doesn’t come without sacrifice.
At the end of the day freedom is not free. It costs something.
