People will try all sorts of things to make themselves feel free and happy. But have you noticed that most of these attempts fail?


That’s because the majority of human behavior isn’t about striving for the end game. Instead, it’s faulty thinking that causes individuals to go in circles, getting on and off the hedonic treadmill. 

 

Fortunately, there are some methods for gaining the type of personal freedom you want. And they have nothing to do with making money. 


Wait a second, didn’t you just say that starting a business was the way to become free? 

 

Well, sort of. You want to think about starting a company as a vehicle for getting to the ultimate level in life. It’s just one method, but it’s a powerful one in today’s money-dominated world. 

 

This post takes a look at why and how people can start businesses to achieve personal freedom. As you’ll learn, it’s not just about doing what you want, when you want. It goes deeper than that. 

 

Why Business Leads To Personal Freedom

 

Business doesn’t lead to personal freedom because of money. There are plenty of billionaires who are still trapped in their heads. 

 

Instead, a business creates personal freedom because it lets you achieve your higher rung of needs: the desire for self-mastery and service. 

 

Think about why the most successful people start businesses. It’s not to lounge around on their yachts all day. Instead, they do it because they feel like they have a higher calling and they want to serve the community. 


That’s something you can do as well through a business. It can become something you use to make a tremendous difference in the lives of others and help them get the lives they want.

So how do you get the lifestyle you want by building a freedom- and service-focused business? Well, it’s actually simpler than you might think. 

 

The greatest tools available today are the internet and the cloud. As DoiT International points out, you can use the cloud to scale and the internet to reach your audience. 

 

The next step is to look inside yourself at your motivations. Ask whether you’re looking to serve others or you want others to serve you. If you’re in the former camp, you’ll feel fulfilled and happy with what you’re doing. If you’re in the latter, it won’t matter how much money you make, it won’t be enough. 

 

As such, the business you create must be a heroic venture. You need to do something as an act of self-sacrifice. If you’re not doing that for others, you won’t feel like you’re doing something fulfilling moving you in the direction of your destiny. 


If all that sounds overwhelming, start with the things you can do right now. Everyone who built a huge company started with the smallest elements first. Then they slowly built themselves up over time to bring their message to more people.
