If you were really free, how would your life be different? In my book, Think Your Way to Happiness, I devoted the last chapter to Freedom, because that is your ultimate goal in your pursuit of happiness.
Here’s what freedom looks like.
Self-determination. You choose what you want to do. You are not under the power or control of anyone but yourself.
You decide what is really important to you.
You know that most problems have solutions and that’s what you focus on. Solutions.
You are your authentic self. You know what interests you and what you feel passionate about. That is what guides your thoughts and actions.
Your self-worth is validated by you and only you. No more pleasing others.
You let go of any relationship, job, or situation that is not a reflection of WHO YOU REALLY ARE.
Love yourself with all your flaws and imperfections.
You decide WHO you want to spend time with, WHERE you want to be, and WHAT you want to do because you have figured out WHY you are on Planet Earth.
You realize that it’s okay to consult with others about your direction.
Freedom is knowing you have CHOICES. You can choose to be HAPPY.
