What Does Freedom Mean to You?

You can be in a room filled with many different people and ask the question…

What Does Freedom Mean to YOU? – And I bet you will get a plethora of different answers.

Freedom can mean a lot to someone depending on their circumstances, wants, desires, and needs in life.

Freedom doesn’t have to require money, but can be a statement of time.

It can define a feeling for someone that may feel like something in life is holding them back.

There are so many different ways this question can be answered, but have you actually took the time to answer the question for yourself?

In today’s video I ask you that question and look for an answer of what does freedom mean to you?

What Does Freedom Mean to Me?

To me freedom means the idea of feeling and having complete control over my life.

Not allowing people or outside circumstances dictate my mood and behaviors.

Being able to travel the world whenever I want and not having to worry about money or having to clock into a job.

Freedom to me means, not having to wake up to an alarm clock and looking forward to the next day of being able to pursue my passions, dreams, and hobbies.

I want to be able to spend my time learning, growing, and excelling as a human being in all aspects of my life.

Mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally.

I believe taking the first step of defining the question What Does Freedom Mean- one can find solutions to solving any problems or issues you may be having.

Freedom starts with a frame of mind and some people, including myself, allow outside influences to dictate how you feel on the inside.

Your definition of freedom can literally be anything you want, but the main thing that needs to be addressed is having complete knowledge of yourself.

You can learn a little bit more about yourself by answering the question: What Does Freedom Mean to You?

So I ask for your answer of what freedom means to you and how you can achieve the level of freedom you desire if you feel as if you aren’t there yet.

Thanks in advance.

Best Wishes!

Worth

You Are Worth More Than You Think

Today, a friend made me remember something important.

My worth!

I’m far more precious than jewels and my value is far above pearls and any other material possession the world has to offer.

Before taking a stand for anything there’s a route that must be traveled.

Always have an affirmative to whatever causes you support and make sure you have tranquility.

Devise a plan, fathom, comprehend, and execute.

Everyone may not agree with your choices.

That’s life!

People will play in the water with you, but not actually dive to the depths of the sea.

But little do they know at the bottom of the sea is where the true answers will be found.

The message for people to understand is there.

Stones may be thrown along the way, sharks will devour your wisdom and spit it out leaving you tarnished and bruised…fish will swim along your side, but everyone will not capture the treasure of thought to change this world.

It isn’t meant for everyone to understand, every thought we have isn’t meant for everyone’s knowledge.

As long as YOU can change the game of this world with that one thought, you’ve made your contribution to the world.

If people can invent everyday necessities, then you can do it too.

There is greatness within you!

Conquer yourself first, then, conquer each cataclysm this world offers.

Face your fears, face those that don’t believe in you and show them who you really are.

It was once said that the ultimate revenge is mass success.

I have personally burdened myself with the troubles of this world’s society and witnessed others endure the same.

This world can alter a person’s thinking making them believe they lack STRENGTH, VALUE, and LEADERSHIP.

Wrong!

A beautiful mind is the great steed our soul is riding.

REMEMBER, STRUGGLE IS IN THE POWER OF THOUGHT!

Over thinking worldly issues and having our own personal stresses can be overwhelming and this is why we need to be uplifted and encourage daily.

Read something positive every day, watch motivational videos, think positively, and surround yourself with people that can make you better.

Make a conscious effort to be better than you were yesterday, but not as good as you can be tomorrow.

The pineal gland is the seat of the human soul.

Care for it well.

Purify the body/mind, eat healthy, exercise, and find the inner peace within you.

The solution to life seems difficult at first.

Learn how to provide people with warmth and information.

Be the change this world needs and find it in yourself to accomplish the inevitable.

There is so much turmoil in this world.

We are all downtrodden by the social and economic structure.

It often times seems a threat to be knowledgeable or working towards it.

When you acquire spiritual enlightenment and tranquility, it quiets the mind, body, and soul into a state of relaxation giving you the strength to pursue and conquer all obstacles like you were destined to do.

Wake up, live your life, and pursue your dreams.

Best Wishes!

Success

Success Begins With a State of Mind

When it comes to wanting to be more, do more, and achieve more sometimes life gets in the way.

Without a direction of where you are going it’s difficult to get to where you want to go.

Many people in life hope for success, but have no real reason why they want to be successful and even more how to be successful.

In my opinion success begins in the mind.

If you want to be successful you first have to create a successful mindset.

You have to already be successful there for it to even manifest into the real world.

Today I wanted to discuss some things that I feel successful people do.

8 Keys to success:

1) Have a Dream

There must be something deep down inside of you that will push you to work towards being successful and you must have a dream.

Do you dream of having the money, the fame, being a star athlete, the best person you can be, etc.

What is it that will drive you to give it your all every single day?

Put that image in your mind…see it, feel it, touch it, taste it, imagine every single detail as if you were living it.

Paint a vivid picture in your mind.

2) Set Goals

Goal setting is very important and is probably the most important task when it comes to success.

Without goals you will be lost…

Goal setting gives you direction.

Physically you must write down your goals to make them real.

Take those thoughts inside of your head and put them on paper.

Once those goals are written down read them every single day 2-3 times.

Morning, noon, and night.

Your mind will begin to construct ways to accomplish those goals.

Each goal should be a progression to the outcome you are seeking.

3) Be Committed

There will be many obstacles and many pitfalls that will deter you from your goal.

Make sure you are committed!

Program yourself to be strong and confident in yourself to know that there is nothing that can stop you from finishing.

This is what separates the winners from the losers.

Many times people quit too early, unknowingly eliminating themselves from the finish line that is just up ahead.

Focus on the finish and be committed!

4) Keep Good Company

Who you surround yourself with will determine if you make it or not.

You environment is a big key to success.

If you hang around people that aren’t going to motivate and uplift you it will be hard to remain positive, focused, and motivated.

Get around people that are going to encourage you, push you, and provide you with a helping hand.

This might mean having to distance yourself from friends or family for a bit, but it is worth it in the long run.

5) Be Accountable

Success doesn’t come by yourself and you will need the help of others to be successful and remain successful.

Therefore, you must be accountable.

Say what you mean and mean what you say.

Learn how to work well with others, develop effective communication skills, and be reliable.

6) Never Stop Learning

I have often heard people say they were finished learning after they were done with school.

One should never stop learning or seeking knowledge.

It doesn’t have to be in the form a school, but never limit one’s self.

Continue to read books and invest in your personal growth.

Successful people spend their time always stretching and developing themselves into something better.

7) Don’t Stop at No

The word “NO” can be very powerful in crushing a person’s confidence.

Don’t let other people’s non-belief in you stop you from moving forward.

People are going to tell you no.

If you cannot get them to say yes find another way to change their mind or move on to the next.

8) Time Management

Time is precious!

We cannot get back time so utilizing your time wisely is important.

Successful people value time and understand it’s importance.

Learn how to get things done in a timely manner and get as much as you can get done during the day.

Constantly strive for success.

Set goals for yourself and find ways to attain those goals.

Never stop learning and growing.

Success is about constantly striving for better.

When you become complacent you begin to lose yourself.

Always work towards being more that you can be and you will live a successful life.

The keys listed above are a good start.

If you follow those strategies I’m sure you will be successful.

To your success.

Best Wishes!

Chess

Chess: Is It a Game of Life?

There have been many comparisons to life and the game of chess.

I often lay in bed at night and think of different chess moves, strategies, and game plans.

During my mental chess game I sometimes get lost with life situations and end up comparing the two.

I’ve been playing Chess for a few years now and I must say I love it.

I try to play daily and usually do.

I often hear people say it’s too complicated or difficult to learn, but in my opinion the basics are easy.

It doesn’t take that long to learn, but mastering it takes a lifetime.

I think life can be compared to chess because it’s about making moves that ultimately will give you an advantage or disadvantage.

Some moves you might make can bring a negative outcome, but you have to adjust and figure out how to regroup.

Some moves you make now may not show you the negative effects of that move until many moves later.

Wins and losses are guaranteed in life, but you have to keep moving forward and constantly rearrange your game plan for the next journey.

It’s about making the best decision possible with what you’ve been given in the situation presented.

Often we have no control over what is thrown our way in life, but we do have control over how we react.

Never regret your decisions and look at every mistake as a lesson to improve. Mistakes are a part of life.

A bad move can’t be reversed just like most poor decisions in life, but that doesn’t mean it’s over. Take a step back, acknowledge your mistake and figure out another stratagem.

In the long run experience is learned and you become a better decision maker.

I can remember when I first learned how to play.

If I remember correctly I did not win a single game until after at least 100 tries.

It was frustrating, but with every loss my mind was expanded and I eventually got better.

I got to see different moves. Was a part of different situations and was able to apply past experiences to things that were going on in the present and act accordingly.

Life works like that as well. We are built to use past experiences to understand situations we go through in life.

That is the reason why going through things make you wiser and at times better.

You open up your mind to something it couldn’t grasp before.

So keep playing and as you lose you will continue to get better. Eventually you will find your game.

Continue to improve on your craft.

Master it, and keep on pressing forward constantly trying new things and teaching others what it takes to become great.

I’m so thankful for the person who taught me.

Not only did I learn a new game I am now passionate about.

It also taught me a little more about life.
