What is the ‘Freedom of Choice’ lifestyle? I’ll get into that in a moment, but first a quick intro…
Hey I’m Alan and right now I’m just a random guy to you, but I hope by the end of this, you’ll gain some valuable insights that you can use in your life.
You know, for years I pretty much avoided putting my face on the web because, well, I really enjoy have a private life.
And I always said that I would rather be a secret billionaire where nobody knows who I am than a celebrity one.
I don’t care about fame, power, or public recognition. But what I do love is ‘geeking out’ and sharing my experience in building what I call a ‘Freedom of Choice’ lifestyle.
And that, by far, has been one of the most rewarding and satisfying parts of my life.
So then why have I started putting out videos? I have two main reasons:
First, through my personal and professional interactions, I’ve been told many times by friends and clients to put my experience, knowledge, and content online so I can share with others like you.
And I’ve always hesitated to do it because again, I like having a private life.
However, I’ve started coming around to the fact that in this short life, it is almost our personal duty to share our knowledge with others, because quite frankly, it can be lost at any time.
And I believe that as we all get older, we will all reach that phase in our life where we just want to share our wisdom with others.
I just want to get a head start before I start to look like this…
And sure, I can make a personal impact on those I see physically in person, but what if it can be multiplied exponentially through a platform like YouTube and other social media?
Now, I don’t know what that life even looks like, but it would be a disservice to not at least TRY and see if my experience can help others like you.
And second, in this current time in our world, the coronavirus is keeping us all in quarantine, so what better time to stop making excuses than now?
The two pillars of Freedom of Choice
With that said, let’s get back to the main idea: What is this ‘Freedom of Choice’ lifestyle?
Freedom of Choice is how I want to help you set up essential foundations in your life so that you can operate at peak happiness because you’ve given yourself, you guessed it, the ability to CHOOSE.
What I’ve come to believe is that happiness in your life comes down to having the ability to actually choose what you want to do in life, and that involves building up two core principles: your Financial Discipline and your Professional Edge.
Your Financial Discipline plus your Professional Edge equals your Freedom of Choice lifestyle.
The first half of your equation is Financial Discipline and that is essentially your personal finances.
The idea here is straightforward: the more money you have in the bank, the more options you have. The goal I have for this channel for Financial Discipline is to help you plan, and better yet, automate your finances.
I want to help expand your knowledge so that you can more easily grow your hard-earned dollars and be set up to survive unexpected financial losses, just like a lot of people are unfortunately experiencing right now because of the coronavirus.
Now, the second half of your Freedom of Choice equation is increasing your Professional Edge.
When we work together on increasing your Professional Edge, it will give you the ability to choose and even adapt your career as you wish.
By building up your specialized talent, my goal is to make you KNOW that you’re invaluable in your professional contributions so that you can finally stress way less in that aspect of your life, especially if you feel the need to explore a different path than where you are right now.
And we all know every one of us has those days.
I also want to mention to you that your Professional Edge can range from full-on entrepreneurship to your career to just a side-hustle.
How you want to grow your Professional Edge is totally up to you. Nobody can, or should, tell you that entrepreneurship is way better than a career or vice versa. It’s your life – you decide what makes sense for you.
Don’t feel stuck or stagnant in life again
So how does setting up your Financial Discipline and Professional Edge give you a way less stressful life and allow you to live the Freedom of Choice lifestyle?
I’ll share the most common example with you: when you hate your job.
When you hate your job, as soon as the alarm goes off in the morning, you wake up miserable. You drag yourself to get ready and you’re pretty much on zombie mode, just waiting for the weekend to come.
Living the Freedom of Choice lifestyle has a completely different perspective, even if you hate your job.
If you’ve crushed your Financial Discipline game, then that means you have enough money in the bank, investments, and ideally even passive income streams like dividends or rental income, so that you’re more than OK leaving your job for something better.
And double that up with mastering your Professional Edge. When you have confidence in your own valuable abilities, you know that you can be an asset wherever you go.
In other words, you’ll never have to feel “stuck” again.
And THAT makes a huge difference in the way you live your life.
So to sum it up in that example: if you hate your job, but you’ve set up your Freedom of Choice lifestyle, then you’ll have the choice to quit and provide your expertise to another organization without much worry. You’ll KNOW another job is waiting for you.
Or you can venture out on your own and sell your expertise. Entrepreneurship is a pretty exciting path too.
In other words, when you build your Freedom of Choice lifestyle, you’re building a state of mind where you’re much happier and relaxed because you know that your foundations are set and that new opportunities will always be just around the corner.
So that’s about it for now. I hope that was helpful to you.
If you’re looking for a change, then I hope my videos can take from where you are now, to helping you set up your ‘Freedom of Choice’ plan so that you can ideally live at a heightened level of happiness because of one simple fact: you’ve chosen to be there.
