F is for Freedom
“Freedom, in any case, is only possible by struggling for it” – Albert Einstein-
Visualize a horizontal line with zero in the middle, and as you move to the left, it says -1, -2 and so on. As you move to the right, it says +1 and +2 etc.
If we want freedom, we must make the decisions and choices that move us to the right side of that scale. The formula for liberation is simply to aim for more pluses than minuses.
Every time we make bad choices for our body, mind and spirit, we move to the minus side of neutral.
We constantly make choices daily, and we can end up with plus 100 or minus 100 daily.
We will begin to notice over time that the more plus’ we have, the more plus’ we want.
When we accumulate little wins, they stack on top of each other and become significant gains.
Doing this makes us aware of when our choices are minuses. That awareness leads us to make better choices and add more ‘plus’ to our existence.
There will always be a couple of negatives in your life, which is okay. That will happen naturally, but if we notice them, we can correct them in the future.
Eventually, we get to a point where we begin to tip the scales to the plus side. If we can do this 80 % of the time, we will have mastered Pareto’s principle and live a happy, healthy life.
When we measure and review our progress, we begin to notice things we did not see before.
We start to see ourselves stepping into the person we want to become, and we know a new truth empirically. That success is found in the journey we take, not in the destination we reach.
So, Are you struggling to succeed? Maybe today will add more pluses to your personal success scale.
