I hear a lot of people say they want to be “FREE”.   What does that mean to you?  Free from a JOB? Free from bills?  Free to come and go and buy what you want?  Free to do what?   Have you ever taken the time to sit down and think about that?

What are YOU willing to do to get that freedom?

If you want something badly enough you can have it if you are willing to pay the price. Everything does have a price.

It takes much time and effort to reach your dreams, but if it was easy everyone would do it. Freedom is much better than owing your life to someone else.

Having to ASK if i could take a day off got old. Vacations were great but when  I did go on vacation I had to work long hours when I returned to make up the work. I knew I wanted to be FREE.

I wanted to be free to sleep in if I shocse. I wanted to be able to get up when I wanted NOT when the alarm went off.   I wanted to be 
free to take a real vacation without working overtime to take a day off.

I made up my mind I was sick and tired of living my life on the hours left over.  I was tired of being owned.

I decided to do something about it. I decided to find a way to build a business of my own, where I would be in charge. So I Did.

It was definitely NOT easy.  I had no blue print.  I had no mentor or model to follow. I had to learn on my own.

I saw a quote once, and made it my motto.  
“Quitters never win and winners never quit”.

I lived by that. Each time I made a mistake, I would learn from it 
and keep going.

I fell many times, but I got back up. I lost people I THOUGHT were friends, but when I didn’t have time to just hand out doing nothing, I found they were people with no ambition. I am thankful I found new friends, with goals and plans.

I learned to hang out with successful people. I found people I looked up to and learned from them.

I read personal development books.   I listened to tapes and I started tolearn and grow.   I literally became a different person. It was NOT easy but it has been well worth it and life is much different.   I developed true RESIDUAL income.  Thru the years of mistakes and failures I did create some sources of income that
still send me checks today.

Back in the days of my JOB world I was literally told the way to freedom is your 401K and your job security.   Today those things do not work or exist.  

I’ve witnessed many people that thought they were secure in their jobs, get booted out as they aged, or have their company fold.  One of my prior friends, husbands worked for a company for 20 plus years.   The company was sold.  The new owners let everyone go.  They offered to bring them back if they wanted for half the salary and NO benefits.   He didn’t take them up on it and received a whopping $200 per month “retirement” income.

The only way to be free is to find a way not to be depending on trading hours for dollars.  The job you have today may not be there tomorrow.  If you truly want to be free, you’ll find a way to become self sufficient. If I did it I know anyone can.

There is HOPE. Get started and NEVER give up,and you’ll find your future.
