With Independence day upon us, thoughts turn toward freedom and celebration. We might even take a day or two off from work to indulge that freedom. Yet when it's over, many of us go right back to the same grind. Every holiday, every vacation: when it's over, it's as if it never happened. Sound familiar?
What is your current state of "freedom?" What is the quality of the free time you're spending? How are your finances impacting your sense of freedom? How free do you feel to engage authentically in the workplace? How free are you to communicate openly and honestly at work? At home? How free are you to make the best choices for your self and your future? Can freedom even be measured on a personal, intimate basis?
In fact, it can be tangibly measured when you quantify how you perceive it. Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle reveals that, as our perception of an object changes, the object itself literally changes. Therefore, knowing how you perceive freedom is the first step in assessing your current level of freedom, what's keeping you stuck, and choosing to be more free.
Yes, I said, "choosing."
You actually get to choose how free you are in any part of your life. Yet it's only possible when you understand how your perceptions influences your sense of freedom. Here's how we might measure it, and recognize where you are:
What kind of freedom are you experiencing in your life? At home? At work? Where in your life are you feeling confined? Resigned to fate? Under servitude to a contract? How can you assess your current level of freedom, and even increase it?
The Energy Leadership Index Assessment (E.L.I.) evaluates and tangibly measures the current level of freedom, engagement, and satisfaction in all areas of your life. It is a one-of-a-kind assessment that pinpoints your specific blocks to success and where your freedom is being disrupted. It gives you a baseline for where you might be stuck or struggling, and also strengths you possess to free yourself.
The E.L.I. has been recognized by Forbes as "one of the Top 10 assessments for understanding your strengths and challenges." I'm proud to be a Master Practitioner of this assessment because it gives you the freedom to choose how and where you focus, manage, and direct your endeavors. Along with the results, I deliver a one-hour private debrief of exactly what the results mean to you, and how you can choose ways to move forward.
Freedom is realizing you have a choice. Awareness of your choices helps you focus on creating the future you want. Reclaim your freedom now at www.stevenreeder.com/assess.
