Here is the states we are celebrating Independence Day over the next few days.
Whether you live in the states or not, this is a great time for all of us to celebrate our many, many freedoms.
Each year at this time I offer my annual blog post about “Freedom From” and “Freedom To” written especially for internet entrepreneurs and anyone who dreams of the freedom to work and live the way they want.
So here is my “Freedom From & Freedom To” article for Independence Day 2009:
Freedom From – Living someone else’s dream. Many of the people that do the typical 9 to 5 day are living someone else’s dream. Even though they get a “paycheck” they are working for the benefit of someone else.
Freedom From – Boredom. Most internet entrepreneurs I know are like me. We do not handle boredom very well. That is definitely one of the advantages of this life style, as you are able to work on multiple projects that you created and enjoy.
Freedom From – Doom & Gloom. I’ve been on a bit of a “media diet” this year, and rarely watch the news or read the newspaper. There’s just too much negativity that brainwashes people to believe they cannot achieve their dreams. I figure if something really important happens someone will tell me.
Freedom To – Create not only the lifestyle you desire, but the kind of work you want to do. Creating new products and new adventures is so much fun. Remember creativity is simply looking at something that has always been there and seeing something that has never been seen before. And then taking action on it.
Freedom To – Simplify. So much of the internet has been made to seem so complicated. I love to take all the noise and boil it down to the simplest repeatable steps. I love teaching this to my students and members.
Freedom To – Inspire. One of the highlights of my day and what I do is seeing my listeners and students be inspired to Go Use This Stuff and build their own businesses, create their own successes and create their own freedoms.
I invite you to celebrate, appreciate, and exercise your freedoms…
Happy Independence Day 2009!
