It’s in our moments of decision that our destiny is shaped.Tony Robbins
For most of us, freedom is a choice. We’re free to choose who we love, where we live, what kind of job we work, how to worship, etc. Unfortunately, the vast majority of people make choices that don’t actually lead to greater freedom. The job they choose, combined with where they choose to live can often lead to long hours, long commutes, and dissatisfaction. Many people end up feeling trapped, and they are. They think what they have is freedom and it’s normal. I heard a quote this weekend about this.
Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work, driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for, in order to get to a job that you need so you can pay for the clothes, car, and the house that you leave empty all day in order to afford to live in it.Ellen Goodman
I don’t know about you. But I don’t want to be normal if that’s it. That kind of normal sounds like prison to me. And prison certainly doesn’t make me think freedom.
On this month’s podcast, I talk with three leaders, Jenna Rude, Mick Daly, and Jennifer Myers, each in slightly different stages of life and in our business. I asked them to talk about what freedom means and how this opportunity has helped them experience freedom. Take about 35 minutes and listen to their stories. I think they’ll inspire you to think about freedom differently and help you think strategically about making a life, not just a living.
