All of us aspire to attain freedom in one form or another, but for most of us, we craft our idea of freedom based on an expected set of circumstances - time, money, power, environment, relationships, and more.
The trouble with this approach is that circumstances are subject to change and inevitably lead to disappointment. Freedom through acquisition of circumstances can never truly deliver on its promise, at least not in any sustainable way.
In this episode, Thom sets you free from this paradigm and shows you that freedom is truly an "inside job." You already have everything you need to experience freedom in its purest form.
Beneath all our layers of unrealistic expectations is a sense of freedom that cannot be given to us, nor can it be taken away. It's our job to learn how to uncover the freedom that lies deep within all of us.
