Freedom starts in the mind
Have you ever had anyone say to you “oh it’s all in your mind”? Well thats right it really is all in your mind.
Freedom “what does it look like for you”?
The foolowing mindset hacks get you closer to freedom in business and in life. But you most importantly “YOU” are the magic trick. Take action on what I will share with you today and you will create more Freedom each day without fail.
If FREEDOM is top of mind for you that means that it’s is something you value. This important to recognise because when you go agianst what you value in Life and in Business you will start to feel trapped.
Lets start with Freedom. How can you have freedom if you continuously tell yourself you are trapped in some form or another. “Oh I hate this…I feel trapped” or whatever the lack of freedom belief sounds like to you, it is what you will experience.
To begin to recognise that your core values matter is to start to give yourself permission to matter. To recognise yourself and what is important to you now truely matters.
The following FREEDOM formula is a little daily or weekly hack you can do for yourself or even with your team at work. It’s a way to simplify your life to maximise opportunity and get you closer to your dreams.
If you focus on “lack” you get more of that. When you learn to with focus on what you want you will create more of what you want.
I remeber a time when I was riding into Las Vagus on my motorcycle and I remeber thinking weeks before I really hope “I don’t have to ride my motorbike through all the traffic everyday to get to my training course” Sure enough I think I subconsiously created it because when I arrived my accomodation was so far away to the training I was attending for two weeks and I was riding my bike in peak our traffic every day!
When it comes to experiencing more freedom it starts in your mind your beliefs of freedom . If you are mindful each day of your focus then you toward what you want to experience. Because freedom starts at the core of you as an individual. Right!
Have you ever felt trapped in a job and heard yourself complaining about the management and the people around you? And so far from the freedom, you desire but just can’t even comprehend the word anymore, in fact, it annoys you and you huff and says there is no such bloody thing!
Be honest, I know because I have been there too. I use to say to my colleges ‘if you see me here in 5 years time, tell me to get a life!’ Well, nobody did and 7 years went past before I did anything about it. And by that time I was grumbling and mumbling about the CEO and the management and starting to hate the next time I went on a trip. At the time I was a flight attendant and I had this burning feeling that I wanted to explore more and start my own business.
So, I started a website in 2004 and I managed to get suppliers, I build relationships with them, but I had absolutely no idea about business at all so I build the marketing had a great website and passion but was missing so many things that of course I flopped and it never happened. I thought that freedom would come if I worked for myself. But what I didn’t know is that freedom is a mindset and it is a mindset you have when you start your business that gives you freedom. It flows into your life.
Freedom sometimes seems untouchable right! However, freedom is a choice, and a way of thinking, doing, creating new beliefs. Taking actions toward creating more freedom is also about identifying what is hinders your freedom in the first place, and often it is your expectations you put on yourself and the people around you that locks you into the cage of despair.
The best freedom mindset hacks are the one you practice daily to make them a habit so that they become normal and become a way you naturally operate in business and life.
Everyone wants to experience more freedom. What does that freedom look like for you?
What freedom means for you is different to what it means for me. It is up to you to decide what it is you need to satisfy your insatiable hunger for freedom however in saying that, I ask you this;
“what are you willing to let go of to achieve more freedom Such as the mental and physical habits that hold you captive?”
Are you willing to give up guilt, fear, anxiety, negative self-talk, holding on to the past that no longer serves you today, belief systems that are no longer relevant to get more freedom?
The following freedom formula is a guideline to creating more freedom that can assist you in your daily life and business. It is a check-in process I created for myself to stay on track and I now share it with startups and business owners and now I am sharing it with you!
” Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain…To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choice- today I choose to feel not to deny my humanity but to embrace it.” Kevyn Aucoin
