If you’ve been reading my stuff for a while this post might come as a surprise… Because freedom has been one of the core values of RLD since the beginning of this site. And many of the strategies I’ve posted since 2012 are about getting you free from a lifestyle where you’re unfulfilled and into a life where you are fulfilled. I still stand by all those strategies and freedom is still one of my core values… But it’s not what I live for. I live for state, having the most consistently positive thoughts, positive emotions and positive sensations (feeling comfortable in your body and not in physical pain). Sometimes I call this consistent happiness, but consistent state is more accurate. My goal is to live my ideal day as much as possible and give you the tools to do the same. Working towards getting free is important, but freedom alone doesn’t get you everything you want out of life. When I was stuck in a job I hated and reading libertarian and travel blogs, freedom was much more important to me, because I didn’t have it. But when I got free, and I got passive income, and I had the opportunity to lay by the beach all day drinking margaritas and hollering at women, I realized freedom wasn’t enough. Check out the audio and video below to see why freedom is overrated and how to make freedom work for you.
