‘Freedom is a road seldom traveled by the multitude.’
I laughed a bit at myself when I did some actual research on this Fredrick Douglas quote. Originally heard this in an old Public Enemy (PE) song, ‘Show em what you got’ from the late 1980’s. Turns out PE was dropping knowledge as usual by integrating activism into their music to help listeners gain a new level of consciousness.
But let’s leverage this quote into a bit of ‘mind magic’ to help with your Walk into The Future.
How many times have you talked yourself out of accepting a new challenge? How often do you stay stuck because you can’t free yourself (mind, body, soul)?
It may be time for the multitude to travel down the road.
Give yourself the freedom to accept and then conquer new challenges. Most times people view challenges with dread and then go into negative self-talk mode. Why is that? You haven’t freed your mind enough to let yourself move forward with the challenge.
You may want to view potential challenges as opportunities available to you.
Go ahead and give yourself permission to release your ‘preconceived’ thought formations and leverage the clean slate available once you free your thought process.
A free mind allows you to:
- Start with a clean slate
- Eliminates stress
- Jump start positive self-talk
- Strategize for the task at hand
There will be other benefits of allowing yourself the freedom to clear your head from time to time. We all carry mental clutter throughout the day. How often do you make the time to clear this clutter to enhance your day? A meditation practice could be leveraged to help with this process.
Go ahead and give yourself the permission to experience the mental freedom you need to soar. It’s okay to get out of your own head for a bit.
