Shifting Gears

I talk a lot about having a business that serves one’s lifestyle and enables you have to have true freedom.

To me, true freedom is getting to do what you want to do, with whom you want to do it, and when you want to do it.

For me and many other people out there, life didn’t start out that way – there was a sacrifice time where I really had to put the pedal to the metal.

I had to put my head down and go to work, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

It’s very similar to riding a bike. It’s clunky when you first start, but then you rip off those training wheels and you start moving forward.

In life, when you start working hard, you gain more and more confidence and become more efficient in what you do.

You get good in the lower gears, such as daily operations, and you get comfortable.

The problem is that most of us have been taught from a very young age that we need to stay in those lower gears forever.

But with each step forward and with each turn of the pedals, you start to achieve more leverage.

It’s just like riding a bike: In a higher gear, each turn of the pedals takes you further.

Unfortunately most of us don’t see the great opportunity that is directly before us.

I realized one day that I could not stay in the lower gears any longer. Even though I was good in those lower gears, my daughter’s health crisis made it necessary for me to change.

But it wasn’t primarily about changing what I did – it was about changing the way I thought, and changing my thinking about who I was.

Once you change your thinking about who you are, everything in your life will change.

Even if you feel like you have a ways to go, just think in the perspective of changing gears.

If you are part of Freedom Founders, we teach you how to change gears quickly.

You can all live the life you want to live, but you have to have a vision for it.

Don’t stop shifting those gears, and focus on how to maximize your leverage with every turn of the pedals.

Leverage is everything, and when you don’t have the leverage…you will burn out.

Think about who you are and not what you do.

And think about having a business that will serve your lifestyle, not the other way around.

To your freedom,
