What does it mean to live a free life and does it actually even exist? A life free of the traditional 9 to 5. One with no glaring alarm clocks signaling that another work day is ahead. A life where we control our income and outcome. Life lived on your terms where you help write the ending. A life that is totally FREE.
What’s Wrong with a 9 to 5?
There is nothing wrong with having a 9 to 5 if this is the life that you choose. A 9 to 5 for many people is a means to an end. I know it pays the bills so you feel that it is the only option when it comes to survival. You have to have benefits because what happens when you get sick or the kids needs braces right? A 9 to 5 is a total necessity……. or is it?
Traditional mindsets will automatically drift to traditional solutions when it comes to generating income. It is unfathomable and goes against tradition if someone doesn’t work a traditional 9 to 5 to pay bills. It’s the traditional thinkers way to associate 9 to 5 will survival, worth, prestige……and if you are generating substantial income outside of a traditional 9 to 5 then it must be illegal -right?
Traditional thinkers hold their jobs with such esteem and pride that they take on 2 or 3 jobs many times just to survive.
Here’s My Question
If you work a 9 to 5 are you truly free? Who controls your time, options, and income? The answer is simple, you control neither. Whoever signs your paycheck is now your master. Your motivation is the paycheck and the benefits are the proverbial shackles. So how do you get free?
Free life begins with challenging traditional mindset and thinking. It challenges the social norm that a 9 to 5 is an absolute necessity. Free life celebrates new age thinkers and entrepreneurs. It celebrates setting your own hours and working to build your legacy and not the legacy of big corporations. Free life allows individuals to follow their dreams unhindered and allows them to live life on their own terms.
Free life also challenges the need for higher education. I won’t touch on this topic in this article but check back because I am interviewing college students as we speak to get their opinions on the issue.
So why the free life?
Why not? Life is for the living. Why should only 3% of the world’s population enjoy the spoils of the world? If you should so desire to earn $100k from home it should be possible. If you desire to raise your kids and stay at home it shouldn’t have to come at the expense of you choosing income over family. You should have the option to do both. Free life=Options….Free life=Happiness……Free life= Innovation….Free life is the new way.
