What are you willing to give up today in exchange for something better tomorrow? Next week? In ten years?
Don’t just wish you were better. Decide you will be better. Make a decision. Take the challenge!
Freedom comes with a price. We have to understand that.
We can’t think to become free in a moment simply escaping from everything and everyone. Sure, it’s the easier thing to do.
But unfortunately it doesn’t work. Because first you have to leave everything in order.
Otherwise your shadow will follow you to the end of the world.
That’s the way it is, there’s a price to be paid. Sometimes it requires years. We have to accept that.
So, here I am, next month, to start promoting my business, to show to the world my philosophy; I’m ready to be a guide or just an example to be followed.
It’s an ambitious project that it took eight long years to come to light.
But today I know who I am, today I say to myself: “Freedom, this time I will find you. This time for good.”
Today it’s not like when darkness was in my life, when fear and insecurity controlled my decisions, when, eight years ago, I stared death in the face.
And it’s not even like when, chasing a better life, I created the Facebook page “Free to think” that counted three thousand fans and then I deleted it, because I didn’t believe in myself, because I didn’t think I was free, because I didn’t believe I could teach anything to anybody.
No, all that is not inside me anymore. Because today I know who I am.
And I’ve learned that freedom has a price to be paid.
An idea is not enough to build a business. Even an idea that works is not enough.
You have to take action and make it happen, day after day.
And you should know that you can’t create something from nothing in a moment.
And you should also know that circumstances won’t be always by your side.
But true strength is not trying something. True strength is the courage to try again every time you fail.
Because before an idea can see the light nobody can feel your heart beating, nobody can see the things you see.
We are all afraid of something. But if our desire is greater than the fear we can find the motivation to go on.
It’s our purpose that makes us overcome any hurdle.
The philosophy that my followers and I want to live by is based on freedom because we believe that human beings are inherently good.
This means that if we feel authentic and realized every path we choose to follow, it’ll be naturally filled with love.
We also believe that nothing can be forced; not even help.
We can blaze our own path and let others be attracted to us. Only in that moment we’ll have the chance to spread our message.
Finally, I can say that I do all that for myself, after all.
Because I’m still paying the price of my freedom.
But I perfectly know that if I’ll be stronger then I will be able to serve others in a more powerful way.
I’m not here to give orders. I’m here to give inspiration.
And if things will go really well, maybe in a year I will be done paying my ransom.
And then yes, freedom I will find you. This time for good.
