If you looked in the mirror, would you feel free?

Freedom, for some reason, is what us humans have strived for, through the millennia. It is as if we were created by a Super Power in a petri dish. (May be we were!) It is difficult to say that we will know the truth, if there is any other version of it. Travel and books are a legitimate way to discover partial truth, if not the whole.

What is clear is that we never feel free, in the true sense of it. We are always seeking freedom. Freedom from work, relationships, or ailments, the list is endless. We all have our own version of it, and have disparate criteria to define what it means to each one of us.

I am taking the liberty of listing out two of the most common criteria that define freedom for people, and some of the things that you can possibly do to inch closer to meeting the criteria. Making money, Travel & books can help you achieve personal freedom.

Travel & Books

This is a slightly tricky one. We all love to travel, but money becomes the biggest constraint. You can always travel to a nearby destination and stay at budget hotels. For some, it could be something different. I would recommend that you try one of the books mentioned below to decide whether budget travel or travel (in the first place) would give you a sense of freedom:

If you could catch dreams, would you chase one?

 

One of the biggest gifts us humans been bestowed with is our ability to dream. You can read about this in loads of self help books. We all have dreams. Dreams root into our deepest desires and emotions that we nurture over a period of time. In more than one ways, our dreams have a significant influence on our personality and character. In other words, our dreams make who we are, and the person we are likely to become. 

Between the dreams and reality, lies our life. What we live is, to a good extent, an effort to achieve our dreams. Turning them into a reality. During this process of living, many extrinsic and intrinsic factors come into play. The extrinsic factors are, to good degree, uncontrollable. They require creative solutions like troubleshooting to arrive at a solution or a work around. Which brings us to intrinsic factors, which are not only controllable, but replicable too. This is where our creativity comes from. And we need creativity to come up with “out-of-the-box” solutions to deal with complex situations.

 How do we get come up with creative solutions to achieve our dreams? There is no one size fits all answer. You need to find what would work for you. To begin with, I would suggest referring to the following self help books:
