Security is the enemy of Freedom
July 30, 2009
One can always tell immediately what their friends are motivated by just by listening to the advice they give. “That sounds risky.” “What will you do if it doesn’t work out.” Perhaps even the classic, “Are you Crazy?” There are some that are motived by opportunities. “That sounds like an interesting idea.” “That should open up a lot of options for you.” Perhaps even: “I’d like to help you with that.”
The point is that being motivated by Freedom often leads a person down some “risky” paths in life yet folks often achieve what they are seeking from life, the issue is that most are seeking for security. Often times those motivated by freedom are willing to provide the security sought by others and in return the others scenselessly provide the freedom.
I often ask myself what I am motivated by and if my motivations are leading me toward what I want.
What are you motivated by?
