Inspiring Success in Many

Freedom is not Free

[tweetmeme source=”cbyndas” only_single=false]I often see this message on church billboards in my local area in and around the 4th of July holiday. It is a great reminder that many have sacrificed so that I may enjoy many freedoms, including running a small business. It has me thinking more about “free” and the responsibility it presents in our daily lives.

Consider for a minute that “free” also means being totally responsible. Being able to speak, act, and live our lives with freedom provides a lot of options but it also lumps a lot of responsibility on our shoulders since this freedom leaves us totally responsible for the outcome of our lives.

We are responsible for our actions or lack of them. We can choose to use our words to lift and inspire or to be critical and destructive. These “rights” are powerful and can provide limitless opportunities if we are brave enough to stand up and take on the challenge of freedom and the responsibility that comes along with it.

I speak with many that want to be “free” of a job they hate but rather than exercise their freedom and move on they are willing accept the shackles of employment since it is familiar and comfortable. Many people choose to limit themselves when they could do so much more with their experiences, skills and talents.

2010 has been claimed as the year of the entrepreneur, matter of fact the fastest growing job segment is amongst start up companies. This is true in many ways because many employers have unlocked the shackles and let many great people go free! Once free from corporate America these are the very people that are fueling the recovery! Go Freedom, Go Entrepreneurs!

Our continual thanks to all who serve in our military, without whom we would never have the opportunities we do!
