055: What it means to be Sovereign

This morning at 7:30am, I was the first one to arrive at our new office.

As I unlocked the door and let myself in, the sun was just inching it’s way up over the Andes.

It was beautiful, one of those moments where I had to stop and reflect on the long path in life that ended up with me standing on the 41st floor in South America overlooking the city.

Life is absolutely about the choice; we either define our realities by the choices we make, or our realities become defined by the choices that we don’t make– choices that others make for us.

That’s fundamentally what freedom is all about. Being free is a choice… one that’s backed up by small actions.

Think of it like losing weight or getting fit. It starts with a choice. Sure, there are lots of reasons to get out of shape. Life gets in the way. Commitments. Family. Etc.

But never forget that being healthy is natural. We’re supposed to be healthy, just like we’re supposed to be free.

We’re all born free. We have to LEARN how to be unfree through a lifelong diet of propaganda that teaches us to subordinate ourselves and be afraid of men in caves.

You become more fit and healthy by making a choice– choosing a healthier lifestyle, and backing it up with small, steady action.

Similarly, you can become more free by making a conscious decision to adjust your thinking, that having a government tell you everything from what you can/cannot put in your own body, to how you can educate your own child, is NOT the way it’s supposed to be.

And then back that decision up with small, steady action.

Today I invite you to listen in to today’s podcast as we discuss the ways in which you can choose to be free, how to back it up with real action, and what it really means to be a Sovereign Man.
