Mini Saga – Personal Freedom

People quit jobs and do unexpected things to pursue their dreams. They have more probability to work if done for the right reasons.

It is okay to do ANYTHING if you have the readiness to do whatever it takes. Decisions are never right or wrong. We have to make our decisions right to serve the context we have created or participated in.

We’re born to serve. First, to serve our own self and then everyone around us. In order to serve, one has to have personal freedom. Read the following mini-saga to see if you’ve achieved personal freedom.

Personal Freedom

In search of Personal Freedom, Rick left his six-figure job three years ago. For years, he would convey his story to everyone around about how he left that high-paying corporate job to acclaim personal freedom. One day, his wife put forward a question – “Rick, have you really acclaimed personal freedom?”

Personal Freedom is achieved when you are free from your past and your future. Personal Freedom is achieved when you choose to live in the present moment. Living in the present moment takes a lot of courage and intent to see things the way they are and the way they are not. That’s scary.

Not always easy, extremely challenging most of the times, but that’s the cost you will need to pay to achieve Personal Freedom.

In the end, I’d invite you to reflect on what Stephen Covey had said, “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In those choices lie our growth and our happiness.”

This answer became the key discriminator and easier for the interviewer.

Your perception and the answers that follow your perception makes all the difference!
