Freedom is the First Pillar of a Very Cool Life (there are 3 pillars, in total).
Without freedom, there simply is no foundation to create a life that will make you truly happy.
Freedom is not the result a Very Cool Life. Freedom is the pre-requisite.
Most people get this ass-backwards.
Instead, most people choose to suffer, strive, and struggle today, believing that somehow things will magically work out and they will be rewarded with happiness in the future.
Doesn’t work that way.
To create the life you came here to create, you must choose freedom now. And you must make this choice a habit. (It’s harder than it sounds.)
What should your life filled with freedom look like? Well, that’s up to you, of course. Your preferences are uniquely yours, so you get to choose what feels best to you.
But in order to live on purpose, you must be choosing. And your decisions must take you further into alignment with your personal feeling of freedom.
To better gauge where you are at right now, I suggest starting by answering the following question (this is one of the first things I ask a new client)…
What percentage of the life that you are currently living would you say is YOUR life?
What’s your honest answer?
I’d wager your answer is a number significantly less than 100%. That’s okay because now you’ve got your baseline — your starting point.
Now comes the tricky part.
In order to upgrade your life and attract all the cool things you really want, you need to begin making decisions based on what feels best to you.
Most people do not do this.
Why? Because people are taught all sorts of nonsense (“you shouldn’t be so selfish”) and are not in the habit of deciding in a manner that is in alignment with their feelings (or even deciding, for that matter).
To create a life of true freedom, you must begin choosing to live a life of freedom.
Do this, and you have your foundation on which to build.
