3 Ideas you can implement right away
Establish Your Core Values
To achieve freedom, you need to know who you are. Establishing your values is an ongoing process since you can decide to change who you are at any time. But as a start, ask yourself, what values will help you to achieve freedom. Write them down and review them regularly. And most importantly, start living by your values immediately.
Set Goals For Every Area Of Your Life
Freedom consists of many parts and many decisions. So, all your goals should serve the overall of becoming free. Try to set small goals in all areas of your life. But focus on the process, you need to master, to achieve those goals. Instead of reading x books a year, you could set the goal of reading 15 minutes every morning right after you wake up.
