Break from the bonds; Shifts in ideas

See, we really think that these so called rules of “paying your dues” and
keeping your nose to the grindstone, are requirements. But really,
they’re agreements.

We think that these obligations, drudgery, and boredom are just the facts of
life. It’s called being practical, right?

I’ll tell you what; being practical is the biggest, lamest, excuse ever for
not doing something that liberates you and makes you come alive. What we often
think of as the necessity of “just being practical” is really a big, fat
assumption. Just because a lot of other people choose that template,
doesn’t mean you have to choose it, too. It’s an option.

Challenge it. I dare you.

Your life will become so ridiculously awesome, you’ll laugh at the rigid idea
of rules.

Because in reality, there are no limits.

This clip from illuminated mind speaks to the fact that we live within our own boundaries and walls. What is felt as obligations are really agreements. Agreements to sacrifice pieces of our lives for organizations that do not care for us and our time.

Some companies are developed for the greatness that is possessed within you. Those organizations are rare. IF you choose to accept the choice of giving time and "renting brain space" to others, this is a conscience choice made by you, this is not an requirement.

How can you separate and become your minds owner?

What can be done to regain your time?

Are you behaving in a self directed manner?
