There is nothing as good as having the liberty to take charge of your own life; to do what you are most passionate about, and to make a difference in the lives of others.
When I was young and still in secondary school, my dad used to tell me, “this isn’t the right time for you to play, face your studies now, become a graduate, have a good job, and then you will have all the freedom in this world to do whatever you like”.
Then, I never completely believed him. Because I couldn’t see any sign of freedom in the lifestyle of those kind of people he was talking about. They all go to work very early in the morning and return late at night. And as a student, I do the same: I go to school very early in the morning, and return late in the evening.
But during my senior year, my dad will always reminds me, that whenever I want to choose the course I wish to study in the university, I should ensure I choose a course which also gives room for easy self-establishment.
And since the day I was born, I’ve always been listening to the same old news and hearing the same complaints about bad governance. I’ve heard people blame the government for their failure to create sufficient job opportunity.
Everyone is always looking for better job, but no one is actually starting one. surprisingly enough, those with job, are always not happy.
But I don’t want to belong to this kind of people. George Bernard Shaw said: “People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them”. And, “To change your circumstances”, Norman Vincent Peale said, “first start thinking differently.”
However, that’s the reason why I made up my mind to follow my own path, focus on what I’m most passionate about, build my potential, hone my skills, and personally develop myself through books and other helpful source.
Because as far as I’m concern, it’s not the government or anybody’s fault that we remain jobless. We all have our own life to live, and we all have our own choices to make.
I want a life whereby my time and money are independent on anyone. I want a life in which my time is spent doing what I love, helping people, and contributing positively to the lives of others.
This is what actually gave birth to this blog: Freedom Lifestyle. To Live the life we wanted and change the world for the better.
The thing is, I don’t want to bother any opportunity to knock at my door, neither do I want to wait for someone else to create my own opportunity and send it to my door step. I would rather go out there instead, create my own opportunity factory, and start sending them to people’s house. The world would become a better place that way.
