If you do a quick search online for the term Independence Day, you’ll get results about either the 1996 movie with Will Smith, or the upcoming holiday that celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence and independence from British rule.
For most people Independence Day is about fireworks, parades, hot dogs, baseball, concerts, fairs, patriotism and barbeques, with red, white and blue everywhere.
That’s all well and good, but I’ve got a different take on Independence Day. Sure I’m proud to be an American, but I’m prouder of the fact that much like The American Colonies who sought freedom from British rule and got it, I’ve fought for my freedom from the Corporate World, and I won my independence on a full-time basis nearly 3 years ago now.
So before you get too wrapped up in the fireworks this Fourth of July, why not take a moment to think about the progress you’ve taken towards securing your own independence?
Are you someone who’s also successfully able to celebrate Independence Day with your own job independence fully in-hand?
If you’re already job independent—congratulations are in order. But are you really as successful as you could be?
