Freedom Is A Choice: So choose wisely...
Welcome to the Freedom By Choice Podcast with your one and only hoste Martin. This podcast is reserved for freedom aficionados and entrepreneurs looking to create the lifestyle of their dreams.
In this podcast you will find all the support and answers you need to start, grow and scale a business that gives you the freedom you deserve.
I have compressed years of trials and errors, into easy to consume episodes, to take you from where you are now, to where you want to be.
So let's say, for example, you're starting something new and you have this goal and this goal is huge. Right. So when you look at it, it looks like the Himalayas, right.
This is insurmountable. It's overwhelming. And you start thinking about all the reasons why you shouldn't do it because it's such a daunting task. So, again, we’ve all been there. It's perfectly normal to have this.
So you will have to conquer that task or that mountain and it’s not necessarily going to be now, OK, so very often you start actually stressing and all that kind of stuff about something that's not going to happen now.
OK, nobody's asking you to go and conquer the whole mountain now when you are just getting started. So you have to understand that. There are some steps that you will actually have to take. So, you know, in the previous podcast, I told you, well, the main thing that you need to focus on is start just to start it.
OK, don't worry about that big mountain and all that kind of stuff. Please don't worry about that. It will come in time.
OK, so this friend of mine, the one thing that she's going through right now is that she sees this huge mountain there and it looks like incredibly daunting. And you can see other people around seem to have figured it out. And they're like miles and miles and miles away from you and you're like an idiot.
The secret to tackle insurmountable problems
So people have a selective understanding of the impact of time. They don't understand something. It's a very important concept.
So the concept is this, is that the person who's going to conquer that mountain, is not the person you are today. OK, by the time you get to that mountain, you will be a much better version of who you are right now.
OK, because since you're trying to prepare to tackle the mountain, then you're going to rub elbows with people who are more advanced than you like, more complex subjects than what you're used to. And basically what happens, it will rub off on you. And that means that you will grow as well.
OK, so time is going to affect you in a way that by the time you get there, you will be prepared, you will have far more knowledge and stuff. And who knows? Maybe that mountain that looks completely insurmountable will just look like a hill or maybe just like a bump on the road.
This is something that people always forget. You're just getting started today. There's no way you can conquer that mountain, right? It's not possible. And for whatever reason, you just forget about the fact that it’s not going to be today.
There is a certain gap between now and when this is going to happen and between this gap, dude, you learn stuff. You learn stuff every day. You will know far more than you know. You'll have solved far more problems.
