Ideas are the things that literally change our lives and we can discard old ideas for new ones, just like upgrading our perfectly good cell phone once the latest one comes out. Our dreams are ideas and this inspirational video talks about how important it is to discover our passions and dreams, and then to take the steps necessary to realize them.
For lots of people, figuring out what the heck they’re passionate about is the toughest part. That’s why my wife and I have agreed not to spend any money on college education for our kids until they work for a couple years, and at least figure out what they don’t enjoy. Knowing what we DON’T WANT forges the path of clarity toward what we DO WANT.
Have you looked inside yourself to see what it is that you are passionate about? What lessons have you learned from the suffering you’ve endured and the challenges you’ve overcome? Howard Mark has a quote I’ve always liked, “Experience is what you got, when you didn’t get what you wanted.” Are you in tune with your values and what you really want out of life?
The speakers in this video talk about the choices we make and how most people wind up taking the comfortable path, when the uncomfortable path is really what our spirit needs to expand. Lots of people die, without ever even starting the journey.
Are you ready to build an online business that empowers you and your life?

The speakers in the video say not to let time, discouragement, or negative thinking cause you to settle for where you are. You were born to succeed and to conquer the obstacles put in front of you. The only thing that stands between you and the life that you dream of, is you, and your lack of action.
They say that you don’t have to be fearless, just don’t let fear stop you. Stay hungry. Stay young-at-heart and take risks.
When we trust in our own abilities, the abilities of those around us and in the unfolding of life itself, we are more willing to experiment and to take risks with the confidence that if we fail, we’ll fail forward and be wiser for it. Like Howard Marks said, “Experience is what you got, when you didn’t get what you wanted.”
But daring to change does take courage and it’s important to honor your progress.
In the video, Tony Robbins says, “Successful people make the decision that says life is far too short to suffer.”
Health challenges led me to that conclusion a long time ago, but I still get stuck in inertia and routine. I don’t seize every day as my last, like I promised myself I would, but I do ask myself every single day, “What will I do today that will get me closer to my goal?” knowing that my goal is complete time freedom to do the things that I enjoy with those I love most.
Huge changes come from small, daily actions. That’s what led me back to health and that’s what has allowed me to be self-employed while being totally unemployable because of those health challenges.
Few take the small, daily steps that create massive change over time. Most people hang out, like they’re waiting to be picked instead of blazing their own trail and carving their own path. I hate to tell you, but no one is coming. It’s up to you. You’re not a kid anymore.
Waiting for the perfect circumstances in order to change is a bad habit that many of us have, even top coaches and mentors. The trick is to make up your mind and do at least one thing every day that will get you closer to your goal.
This is a life-changing mindset that I am honored to share with you. Go grab your dreams and make them your reality, and check out the video!
Until next time, be well!

Freedom Through Digital Education
By submitting your application to join the SFM, you’ll gain immediate access to top coaches and daily live training webinars
Each webinar is recorded and shared with the community. Microsoft Lynda (Owned by LinkedIn) and DigitalMarketer (the world’s longest standing and most highly respected B2B and B2C digital education training company) have both partnered with the SFM and now offer their courses and services as part of different levels of SFM membership too!
We focus on helping others break from their unfulfilling careers and lives, to take back control and become the best version of themselves. I believe in creating a spark that ignites the fire within others to confidently take action, so that they are inspired to become who they are meant to be. The result is time, financial and geographical freedom.
Our core value is this – we want to help anyone who has the courage to step out of the status quo (your financial security in the hands of an employer) and drive into creating life on their own terms. All you’ll need is a working computer, a decent internet connection and the commitment to learn the skills that will set you free. We help each other and if you’re hoping to find a community of people who can show you how to be successful, you’ve found it!
Most of our community members were working to build someone else’s business and someone else’s dreams, but decided that life is too short. We all had “a-ha” moments and decided to recreate our lives by starting online businesses in our spare time. We control our future and we’d love for you to join us.
Meet Stuart Ross, SFM Co-Founder and Your Guide
“Welcome! I started my journey into the digital and entrepreneurial world with nothing more than perseverance, a laptop and a dream.
To date, I’ve created a multi-million dollar lifestyle business in the education and technology industry that I absolutely LOVE. My driving passion is sharing the know-how and mindset that lets others feel the same way.
The reason they call me The Freedom Entrepreneur is because I refused to accept the constraints of traditional employment. Having successfully found a better route, I’m committed to showing others how to live life on their own terms too.”
Stuart and his team have helped thousands of people who want to be self-employed from the comfort of their computers, but don’t know how. The SFM’s Digital Business System and community are one of the fastest ways to get you from where you are, to where you want to be.
Four Principles To Create Your Best Life
PRINCIPLE #1 KNOW YOUR VISION
Stuart talks about vision moments. My girls screamed with delight, as they touched snow for the very first time and like a light switch, I instantly realized that no job was worth missing my kids’ childhood and making quality memories together. That’s the vision that keeps me motivated. I’m putting the effort in now, so I have free time and extra money to make memories with my wife and kids for many years to come.
PRINCIPLE #2 INVEST IN YOURSELF
“Every day I make sure that in some capacity, I’m investing in myself. Unlike school, as a self-learner, you get to choose the areas you’re enthusiastic about and you get to choose the people that you’re learning from.” The most important investment I’ve ever made has been in me and my education, not a 401k. The return on your investment is the ability to earn income, no matter what the economy is doing.
PRINCIPLE #3 DO THE WORK
Find someone who has what you want and do what they did! Find someone who’s willing to teach, who’s been there and done what you’e looking to do, and follow their lead. I tried to build several online businesses early on, without a guide, and failed. Then I found the SFM and their guidance allowed me to succeed. It’s designed to help anyone go into business for themselves online.
PRINCIPLE #4 KNOW YOUR VALUES
If you don’t know your values, then it’s time to uncover and illuminate them. Then, everything else you do will be aligned with your values. I decided to make a change and learn the skills necessary to be self-employed online, so that I’m always available to make memories with my wife and kids. God, integrity, loyalty, having fun, and passion are a few other values I hold dear. What values drive your daily actions?
