The Path to Freedom: Week #1

As we continue on our path towards freedom, we prepare ourselves for the upcoming week with one quote to live by, along with three guiding tenets, rules and/or goals for the next seven days. 

Quote of the Week

“A thousand words will not leave so deep an impression as one deed.” – Henrik Ibsen

Use this week to turn your words into reality. Do the things you’ve been saying you will accomplish. It’s time.

Rules & Goals of the Week

1. On a consistent basis, ask yourself, “Am I being the person I want to be?” 

As adapted from the outstanding, must-read book Tuesdays with Morrie, it’s important to ask ourselves this question. Don’t waste your time this week – you’ll never get it back.

2. Stand in the face of disapproval.

As you accomplish more and more, people will disapprove. They will find you odd and threatening, and will try to bring you down. Don’t shy away from their disapproval. Don’t stop sharing your life with the people you love, even if they disagree – stand in the face of their disapproval. Beat it. Transcend it.

3. Finish one book this week.

It’s time you picked up that book that you’ve been meaning to finish for the past few months. There is too much knowledge out there and too little time to acquire all of it – so pick up the pace!

Let’s do it.
