Treat people as if they were what they ought to be
and you help them to become what they are capable
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe~
Have you chosen your independence? Are you happy with the choices you have made? I was stuck in a 4 PM to 1 AM job for 17 years. Then I discovered that we do not have to work to create someone else's comfort while existing in a non-beneficial state ourselves. I learned I could fulfill my dream of helping others to help themselves, while building financial and time freedom for myself. Now I can spend my time helping others to do the things they love, while having the time freedom to spend with my family, foster children, crochet for charity, and guide others on a path to healthier, happier lives.
Do you chose independence?
