One of the things that makes the US great is that it promotes the idea of independence, that is, that if you work hard enough for long enough, you can be your own boss. There are thousands, if not millions of people in the world who have realized the goal of being an independent person. And by independent person, I mean someone who has figured out a way to make their own decisions without fear of the consequences. The average person finds themselves enslaved by a job, a system, and a way of thinking that limits them from realizing their fullest potential. They have to go with the status quo because they aren’t saving money, nor continually networking for new opportunities, nor investing in their own vision.
An independent person knows that they have much more to offer than what their current station in life dictates. They also refused to be limited by a job title or perceived social status. They continue to strive to realize their vision and are focused on building assets that their progeny will be able to utilize for 100 years or more. Even if you find yourself working for someone else at the moment or having to participate in a system that isn’t beneficial for your ultimate welfare, you can declare your own independence and fight day after to day to eventually obtain freedom. independence starts with a state of mind and then it translates into reality.
