Everyone wants freedom. Especially in America, the “land of the free”. So, It amazes me how many people don’t actually have it with their jobs. Freedom is the pinnacle of success for a reason because it allows you to do what you want, when you want. So, why do so many people live content working a job they don’t really enjoy?
Freedom in our work is envied, but rarely pursued. And, when it is pursued it’s often given up on quickly. Most people have a warped idea that if something they create doesn’t go viral then it’s a bad idea. Which is crazy. Most creators never have anything go viral. So, instead of pursuing the dream of freedom in their work they give up on it and settle for something that is safe. And, usually that is a career.
There is nothing wrong with careers, if you enjoy it. But, you shouldn’t work a career you don’t enjoy just because it’s the safest bet to feed your family. Instead create a plan that works for you. Work the safe job while you build your creative endeavor. Show up everyday and stick with your project. Connect with like-minded people and eventually it will evolve into something you could have never even imagined.
There is a path if you want it. You just have to step out and embark on it and keep putting one foot in front of the other. Eventually those small steps will take you to the next big adventure.
