Freedom From Work
Seeking out freedom from work and wanting to live life on your own terms is a wonderful goal. You will no longer be limited by time or money, and you’ll be free to do as you wish.Have you
However, before you even start chasing this dream of yours, ask yourself what’s going to happen after you achieve it. Will you find freedom fulfilling? Will you finally achieve true happiness?
You may say “yes” without really thinking things through.Who wouldn’t want that kind of freedom, right? When you finally become your own boss and you’re not indebted to anyone or anything, you may be beyond ecstatic. But sometimes, you do have to be careful of what you wish for.
What comes next after freedom?
The truth is that many people fail to understand what freedom will truly mean for them. People who don’t plan everything through are usually the ones who fall victim to this.
Do you think,
If you don’t plan everything through, that is, you only planned how you’re going to achieve freedom BUT NOT how you’re going to spend your time AFTER you’ve achieved that freedom, then you may end up regretting your decision.
Here’s an example:
You’ve been slaving away at your job for years and all you really want to do is work at home. So, you plan out how you’re going to achieve your freedom and finally be your own boss.
A few years later, you’ve saved up enough money and you feel comfortable enough to leave your job. However, in your newly-found freedom working from home, you suddenly realize it’s not all it’s cut out to be.
Everybody needs to do
You realize you didn’t plan well enough on how you’re going to structure your days without somebody telling you what to do.
You didn’t have the right mindset going into this, so you’re probably going to hate it eventually. You’ll spend your days procrastinating and spending all the money you’ve saved.Try to make a
Sooner or later, the money’s going to run out. And you’ll realize you were better off working for somebody else, so you go back to your old cage called ‘employment.’
So, you see, if you don’t plan how you’re going to live your life after you’ve achieved freedom, then you’re going to fail big-time. You’ll say freedom wasn’t meant for you, which in essence, is true.
Freedom is for people who can handle being free. It’s for people who have the discipline to live their life as planned. It’s not for the lazy and the undisciplined, people who are not willing to put in the work in their free and unencumbered life.Don’t worry
The good news is you really don’t need to go back to your life in the “cage.” You can still turn your life around. Just adjust your mindset and start living your life with a much higher purpose.Do you really think
I had also written on optimism:
Freedom From Work – Living Life With a Purpose
When you’ve got too much free time on your hands, and you’re not used to having that much freedom, then you could end up bored or you could go crazy. This is why it’s important that when you plan a life of freedom, you also plan what comes after you finally achieve freedom.Nothing stops here
For many, the answer is by living their free life with a fulfilling purpose. It can be anything you want, really. But for most people, their idea of a fulfilling life means the ability to help others. They want to make an impact on other people’s lives.
Living life with such a noble purpose is simply amazing. Imagine yourself devoting your time and your resources to help others, so they too can live a somewhat enjoyable life!
There are many people who live their lives like this. They don’t care about accolades or awards or monetary rewards. These people have so much love in their hearts and their selflessness is truly something to behold.I believe in that
Freedom gives you the wonderful opportunity to pursue your own future. But it doesn’t have to be all about you. In fact, if you make your freedom all about you, you’ll find freedom will get old pretty fast.Seriously,
Self-absorbed and self-centered people don’t get a lot of love in real life, and it can get lonely when everyone starts avoiding you because of your arrogance.Work on yourself
So, when you finally achieve the freedom you’re seeking right now, don’t just think about yourself. Keep challanging your self. Think about others, too. The majority of people aren’t going to be as lucky as you.
