Intro - Just 7 Steps to Your Dreams
his is a book about Freedom
. How to get it, and how to keep it.
If you stick with me and work through this book deliberately and diligently, youwill be well on your way to achieving everything you ever wanted from life.So what do I mean by "Freedom"?To me,
freedom is having the time, ability, and opportunity to do the things that I want to doin life
It is about enjoying life to the full. About extracting every second's worth of life out ofevery minute lived. About being able, on one's death bed, to be pleased with a racewell run, a life well led with no regrets.Is it about money? Yes, money is a part of it. It is hard to be free if you are broke. Butmoney is not everything - there are plenty of rich men and women who are as miserableas sin.
are hardly free. In my book, freedom includes having enough money to dothe things you love to do - yet without letting money become your master.Is it about love? Yes, because life is about passion, and about emotions. Without bothof these we are as un-free as a robot. But love can also be a prison, and so Freedom isabout learning how to enjoy your emotions, your passions and, yes, your loves in a waythat brings liberty and life to all parties - whether they be your lovers, your children,your family or your friends.Is it about time? Of course! Every one of us has only 24 hours in a day, 7 days in aweek, 52 weeks in a year, and maybe 80 or 90 years in a lifetime. How will you spendthose precious moments? Because, once spent, they can never be regained. For 95% ofthe worlds population their time is effectively controlled by other people and otherdemands - every moment of the day is soaked up by the ever-present need to earnenough to pay the bills, to clean the house, to look after the children, to satisfy thepartner or spouse, and to keep the in-laws at bay.
is not freedom!
