Free Yourself

The opinion that everyone must sacrifice themselves for everyone else, is assumed to be both true and beneficial. It’s repeated often and never questioned. But it's unnecessary, causes bad attitudes, involves conflicts that have nothing to do with you, destroys natural incentive, is logically and practically self-contradictory, and it harms those who are supposed to be benefited by it.

Consciously question those assumptions. They are no longer obstacles. The methods you choose will get rid of restrictions without as much pain and effort as might have been thought. You focus on the methods and the steps .

You maintain control when you focus on the positive as well as thinking out alternatives to the negatives. You control your situation because you know your alternatives.

Knowledge works by merely having it.

Becoming free is simple. It doesn't depend on the support of others. I'm not urging you to accept these ideas.

You’re not obligated. You don't have to change society. You don’t have to convince anyone of anything. You don't need my support of the support of the public.

These ideas depend only on you. If you were the only person who knew about them, they would still be useful. Whether they work for anyone else is irrelevant. You decide whether they can work for you.

You have to make the decisions. I can't tell you how to live. I'll point out alternatives and techniques. You’ll decide which ones to use.

Only deciding everything for yourself produces the purpose and conviction necessary to live freely.

You decide what, how, and why. Otherwise, your hopes, plans, and enthusiasm will cave, once there's interference. I'm not telling you how to live. You have to decide how to live. You have to decide what to do with these ideas. I’m not demanding anything from you. You decide everything for yourself.

Assumptions and restrictions accepted without challenge are often empty once examined closely. There are many specific ways to free yourself from complex problems and perpetual burdens. These techniques for changing to a free life are not some ideal image. I'm not trying to make you conform. They work, if freely chosen and tailored to who you are, what you control, and what you want.

You don't have to accept obligations, liabilities, and demands that others may try to hand you. There's a better way. You are about to discover a fascinating world of naturally motivating and sustaining opportunities.
