The Freedom Formula – Choice and Means
Every time I walk into the gym, I pump myself up to exercise my body and have somebody else exercise my brain.
This morning I found myself in a conversation when Ron asked me a question…
“Since you’re a Coach, tell me if I’m right. Your most important goal is always to have freedom in your life – right?”
You should have seen his face when I said, ‘Nope.’
Don’t get me wrong, I’m an American, and freedom rings in my bones – but there is a cost to getting that freedom, which makes life fun.
I went on to tell Ron that, after a lot of experience, I have settled on two driving forces: the ability to choose and the means to make it happen.
I believe true freedom comes from choosing the path that makes you a better and happier person AND makes the world a little better because of your choice.
I also believe that having a true choice almost always comes down to having the means to make it happen. Whether it be skill, friends, or money, without the means, you have a minimal choice.
Choice + Means = Freedom. That’s a winning formula no matter where you are in your life.
