True freedom doesn’t come in the future, from a situation, or “from” anything at all, but is within you right now.

Here are the 4 steps to freedom,  from Jackie Vecchio,  (who writes about creating happy. If you want to be a more active participant in the creation of your personal brand of happiness because it’s NOT the same for everyone, then come over to http://www.createhappy.net. )  where you can shift your thoughts so you can feel freer, lighter, and happier in your life instantly.

 

 

 

 

Jackie Vecchio’s 4 Steps To Freedom

 

 

 

 

1. Don’t take anything personally.

  • Each person’s opinion is solely the product of their own life and reality
  • It’s way easier to get offended or mad or to internalize and believe what they said.
  • Rather than getting consumed by it, obsessed over it and letting it affect you, just let it go.
  • Hear what they say, accept that it is a reflection of their world, and poof. 
  • See the thought disappear.

 

 

 

2. Don’t be a victim.

  • It’s easy to think that the world is against you.
  • Have you ever had one of those days where everything goes wrong?
  • There are things in our control and out of our control.
  • You can’t control the world around you, but you can control how you react to things.
  • Don’t fall into the downward spiral of the victim trap.
  • Embrace each and every thing that happens as an opportunity.
  • When something “bad” happens ask, “What is the universe trying to tell me?”

 

 

 

3. Be gentle, kind, and compassionate with yourself.

  • Are your thoughts kind?
  • Or are you your own worst critic?
  • When you look in the mirror, do you see pure beauty, or do you pick yourself apart?
  • Work on shifting your thoughts to ones that are more loving and kind.
  • Every time you think something negative about yourself, replace it with a positive.
  • Focus on the good things and give attention to your awesomeness.
  • Eventually, you will start believing them.
  • Doing so allows you to have the freedom to just be you.

 

 

 

4. Practice forgiveness.

  • Forgiving is releasing the power that a certain event has on you.
  • By not forgiving you are keeping your mind in the past, thinking and wishing that things could have been different.
  • This traps you and makes you feel powerless.
  • Forgiveness puts you back into the present—the only time that truly exists—where you have the power to live free and happy.
  • Next time you feel stuck, turn your awareness within.
  • What do your thoughts look like?
  • Allow your mind’s grip to release so the joy can flow in.

  1. Loved this post, Joan. Spot on. Any of of these things bring personal freedom, employ all 4 in your life and you really are free. Forgiveness, something many people can struggle with, is something I have found personally to be one of the most freeing things I did for myself. Not just forgiving other people, and therefore letting go of the need to play the role of victim anymore, but also forgiving myself. Wow. That was a major shift. Great post, blessings, Andrea

  2. Freedom – my favorite subject. Thanks, Joan. 4 excellent tips to MIND FREEDOM, the one that Antoine de Saint-Exupery acknowledged in your quote. Personally, on my own “Freedom Quest” I categorized four components (for the Freedom Quadrant as I called it) as being Time Freedom, Money Freedom, Mind Freedom and Freedom Of Environment. I am certainly taking note of your sage advice. Thank You, Thank YOU, THANK YOU. prp
