Freedom Requires Growth and Risk describes freedom as the power to determine action without restraint. Do you have big dreams or ambitions? Want to experience the exhilarating freedom of pursuing a life you love that brings fulfillment and happiness? But, do you know what freedom requires?

“We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.”

William Faulkner

Freedom Requires:

Taking Risks

To live a life of freedom is risky. Freedom always requires a person to go beyond their perceived “secure world.” But, the good news is letting go of the limitations of perceived security in exchange for real freedom is worth the growing pains.

From the beginning of time to modern days, only people who went for freedom in life ever amounted to much. You’ve never heard of any great success resulting from a person who insisted on security. Security is the safe route.


The door to freedom is a funny thing because it’s available to anyone willing to open and walk through it. It may take some courage, but you will be amazed at what opportunities are opened to the person who is choosing freedom.

What results are you looking for in your life? Are you ready to let go of the need for perceived security and go out to create your ultimate freedom? If yes, this is the moment it can all happen for you, but be cautious not to jump into your dreams half-heartedly.

There is no true freedom without taking personal responsibility and proactive action. There’s no way around it; to be truly free and happy, you have to grow. And growth requires taking risks, stepping outside your comfort zone, and, yes, facing difficult challenges.
