There are many words that we can associate with our high performance journey and yet, there are some that resonate more than others. Freedom bubbles to the top because it captures the special mindset that is in the fabric of the journey. Webster’s tells us that Freedom is “the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint”. And it is in this essence that we find our path to improving our lives, bettering our performance, finding personal fulfillment and building our community. Freedom vibrates inside all of us, and with it, curiosity becomes fuel for what is possible, independence becomes normative and improbable becomes inevitable. In human history, we do best when we are free to be who we are, to explore life and capture the essence of being that is indeed our reason to be better.
