When our clients are exposed to our company, they are
often impressed with how we really stress the concept of
Freedom - and well they should be. Our central core value
is Freedom, our web address is deliverfreedom.com, heck-
it's the name of our company! At the same time I see that
the vast majority of individuals I meet do not have the kind of
professional or personal Freedom they really desire and
deserve. Do you?
If you listen to our two-minute trainings (a practice I
strongly encourage), you may have heard me discussing
what I call the "keys to Freedom" over the past few months.
Last month was about having the right opportunity (click
here to listen to past month's training tips.) This month's
sound bite is about having or developing an effective
system to unlock Freedom. Because it's just that critical, I
wanted to devote this article to the biggest key of them all-
making the right choices.
The role of our choices is central to how much Freedom
we experience. In fact, we define Freedom as "the capacity
to exercise choice"- and when I say exercise, I literally mean
exercise like a muscle. The more you properly exercise a
muscle's capacity to lift a weight, the larger that capacity
grows, right? Same goes for your choices. The more you
exercise your choices properly, the larger your capacity for
choice grows. What we must be aware of in this analogy is
1. Choice is inescapable. There is no such thing as not
exercising choice. Whether you like it or not, you are always
making choices, even when you choose not choose. As a
result, the only possibilities are to exercise choice properly
or improperly. There is no third alternative.
2. The consequences of our choices are also inescapable.
When we exercise choice properly, our Freedom increases.
When we exercise choice improperly, our Freedom
decreases. There is no third alternative.
If you think about it, you'll see that this is true in every
area of Life. As an example, if you make bad choices or no
choices about your money, your financial Freedom will
decrease. If you make good, proactive choices about
money, your financial Freedom increases. I could give
examples of this same cause/effect relationship in the
physical, professional, spiritual, relationship and
educational areas all day long, but you get my point. I
encourage you and challenge you in the weeks to come, to
be mindful of the choices you make every moment of every
day and see the results they are giving you. You have the
power to change your choices. When you do that, you
change your Life immediately.
