Freedom Day

This is one of the best post I get to make.  In the month of December we have had 3 people who have built their own business, to a financial level,  that enables them to walk away from their jobs.  They are Carol Miller, Chad Baker, and Jason Tingley.  They are now time free and can pursue what they love to do.  They learned the skills, techniques and principles by being plugged into 2 sources.  The Team biz and The Life Business.  These organizations are led by Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady, Tim Marks, George Guzzardo, Claude Hamilton and Dan Hawkins.

Sorry but I cant figure out how to flip video

If you are looking to one day do what these champions did.  Let me give you a  tip to their success.  They all kept digging when others told them there was no gold in this business model.  There is a famous legend of a gold miner who dug into the side of a mountain range for 20 years.  He had dug many shafts all over the mountain range but he would only dig them a little ways and then get frustrated and start a new shaft  He told his friends every day that he was about to hit it big.  He eventually died of old age and penniless.  After his death the group that gained access to his mountain continued to dig into some of the tunnels he had started.  After a week they hit one of the biggest veins of gold in North America.  The sad part was that he was only 3 feet away!  You never get the reward for starting something.  The prize always goes to the one that finishes.  These 3 champs had many times were they could have stopped but the continued until they hit their vein of gold.

The other area that I have seen them push through is criticism.   It is amazing how you can totally be wasting your life away and no one will say a thing.  But if you start trying to excel and become great, watch out.  The critic’s come out of the woodwork.  They will tell you every reason why someone like you cant make it.  They don’t have another opportunity for you to pursue but you shouldn’t do this one.  I have never understood why a friend, family, co-worker wouldn’t want you to strive to become better.

Teddy Roosevelt said it best, “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. “

  4. Bill, Congratulations on the success you are creating on your team! I like what you said about how these people persevered long enuf to get success and ignored the nay sayers. Its amazing in an economy like you have in the US that LIFE is producing incomes for people to proviide their own financial security. Proud to be in business with you.

  5. This was total BELIEF. This can happen if you “stay tough, overcome fear and resistance” ~ Bill Lewis. LIFE is where its at and to follow these amazing leaders that produce results. WOW! Get rid of the Ego and find the humility to say “I dont know what I dont know” and chase your destiny.

  6. Wow! That is so awesome! Congrats to Carol Miller, Chad Baker, and Jason Tingley. I like what you said Bill: “They all kept digging when others told them there was no gold in this business model.” VERY TRUE!

  9. Bill you are truely inspiring we over here in australia need more leaders and I will be iam a leader striving to please our lord. Bless your family, see you at the top soon mate.

  10. Bill,
    I had the honor of being present at two of these freedom days! I tell everyone, do whatever you can to get to the next one in your area (which are happening more and more now). It’s amazing to see young kids excited about having Mom and Dad home. It’s exciting seeing people’s faces as they watch a Mom come out of factory and smash her safety glasses on the ground. It’s so fun writing dreams on helium balloons and letting them fly as a Dad walks out of the department store for the last time. It’s fired up seeing Hummer limos and Charter buses and Bentleys driving around. It’s awesome thinking back to when each of these people started and seeing where they are now. No matter if your fast or slow, it will be worth it for your family when your day comes.

  14. This was truly amazing. It is one thing to hear about retirement parties but to actually be there and be apart of it was an eye opener. I had a blast and can not wait to have my own. Kari and I already have ideas for ours. Its going to be a blast!
    Thanks Bill
