How to Set Oneself Free!

Published on June 29, 2023

As we prepare for Independence Day, I have one question for you:

How many of you are truly independent from the thoughts and beliefs that keep you from moving forward, creating a drag or resistance on your velocity?

You see, we have two types of independence. One is the freedom and liberties that we have by living in this country. But the other one is our personal independence — being free of all those thoughts that slow us down and hold us back.

I’m talking about the thoughts we have of being angry.

I’m talking about the thoughts of being fearful.

I’m talking about the thoughts of jealousy.

I’m talking about the stories that we create in our mind as to what people really meant and how could they have said that.
I’m talking about the humiliation we may feel.

And you can add another 10 to 20 of additional thoughts you could be having that are ripping you off of your independence.

So when we celebrate with fireworks next week, honoring all the freedoms and liberties that we have by living in a democratic country, the question I’m asking you to think about is this: Do you have the same liberties and freedom to move forward in your life, unencumbered by the thoughts that act as a drag or resistance, hindering your progress?

Happy July 4th.
