July 4th, 2010
This morning, I got to thinking about the freedom we have in our country.
Unlike with communism or a dictatorship, where there is less choice, Americans have the freedom to create and live the life of their dreams.
But there’s a problem.
Although America offers people freedom, many people shackle themselves within the belief of limitation – that they are either not worthy or not capable of fulfilling their personal legend. Even though they’re given freedom, they accept tyranny. And they are their own tyrant.
Even though I’m a motivational speaker and I believe that anything is possible, I sometimes fall into the trap of limitation. It’s an ugly trap that tries to push away the things we want, and make us believe that the attainable is out of reach. On this 4th of July I wanted implore you to listen to your heart, not the lie of limitation, and follow your dreams. If you don’t know what they are, click here to figure them out.
Remember, at one time America was the little guy, while Britain was a powerful country. Odds were that we were going to lose. Yet we still won our freedom, the very freedom you hold in your hands today.
What will you do with yours?
Even if you feel like an underdog, you have the power and the right to live your dreams.
And remember, you are not alone …
