    Since I am a freedom seeker I enjoyed taking this survey about myself right now.

    I see I really need to work on and want to succeed in the financial freedom area and am strongest in the inner freedom portion. Although the first three categories are low scores for me ( 7-3-9) I want to focus on financial freedom most of all. I’ve been home raising my kids and my spirit for the past 15 years and am now ready to seek out my financial goals through my own personal ‘dream package’ : )

    Hi everybody,

    although the biggest lack I feel right now is in my financial freedom, what I really want is location freedom.

    I don’t want to go to an office anymore.

    I want to be able to contribute from home or while visiting friends in Australia, sitting at the beaches in Ibiza or in Maui or in a cafe in New York City.

    So my first choice is

    LOCATION FREEDOM

    and I want to reach it through

    FINANCIAL FREEDOM

    by sharing my

    INNER FREEDOM

    with the world. Quite a bit of

    TIME FREEDOM

    would be great, too. Actually,

    I WANT IT ALL !!!

    Cheers,
    Chris

    I really want to increase my financial freedom. I come to this website at a time when I had been determining I needed to develop the capacity to build my own structure, to support myself, to follow through and to work.

    I’m most held back by an unwillingness and misunderstanding a resistance …that working hard will sacrifice the pleasure in my wealth of time and inner work.

    But it’s also clear I’m restricted in ways that being very successful at pleasure seeking wont liberate me from. Freedom is the perfect word to describe what I want from being able to make my own money and support my own endeavours – a deep sense of inner trust that I can do it and follow through in concrete ways.

    In 6 months I would especially love to be closer to 6 months worth of living expenses while being able to afford a good percentage of things I want with less debt – all while still being free in time and in my inner explorations which are key to the work I do.

    financial 6 (but not independently)

    inner 17

    I come across this material in the midst of determining that I need to build my financial/material independence and sense of stability and wealth.

    I have been resistant, unwilling, unmotivated, uncertain, and felt unable throughout most of my life. My biggest obstacle is the fear that working hard will equal suffering and unhappiness and lack of pleasure. Which, while I’m good at seeking pleasure and avoiding work and abstractly manifesting my delights and desires, I want a deeper, more internally sourced and concrete sense of ‘i can make this happen – I can follow through’ which amounts to trusting myself with the practicalities of life – to bring my capacity for joy and celebration to this aspect of my human experience in a way I haven’t before.

    I’m most afraid that creating financial freedom will cut into my time and inner freedoms that are my greatest treasures in life and more important to me than money on it’s own or for it’s own sake. so, freedom is exactly the word for what I am looking for – a financial freedom I am responsible for and feel able to sustain without taking away my wealth of time that feeds my inner freedoms that are the sustenance of the work and service i do.

    In 6 months I would like to see my location freedom be at, at least, the same number but by my own doing (in a way I could sustain independently) and see my financial freedom be at, at least, 10 by my own doing. specifically in the area of savings for living expenses while being able to afford a high percentage of the things I want.

    I really want to improve my Financial Freedom. This has been my bugbear for quite some time. I don’t live an extravagant lifestyle – don’t own a car, don’t go out much, or spend heaps of money on clothes or technology, yet I still only just make ends meet working in a corporate job. Always in debt – I get out of it then a huge bill comes and I have no savings (from paying off the debt) so back comes the debt. Need to beak this cycle.

    I don’t think I’m strong anywhere … but inner is probably better than the rest. I’m living my dreams in the hours I have when I don’t work, not through my work, and those hours just leave me longing for more.

      Wonderful to be so high up here! Much appreciation for this opportunity to reflect.

      Of the point missing in Location Freedom, it’s because I have time for vacation, but not as much of the financial basis that I’d like to be free to travel to a broader list of destinations, or to travel in the more comfortable way I’d like to.

      The point missing in Financial Freedom is because I don’t always quite make quite as much as I spend. That’s what lead me to this book, I’d love to put making a generous income doing what I love to do with all of this wonderful freedom I’ve created, enjoy and am very grateful for.

      This is my first blog post and I have a feeling it’s the beginning of my utilizing this tool for my business. Thanks again!

    My strongest area is Inner Freedom. I am good at finding resources to take care of things I can change. I make peace within about things I cannot change.

    My strongest desire: Financial Freedom. I currently volunteer. But, I want money to enhance operations at my high school and college alma maters.

    Then, towards travel. Reconnecting with former military comrades would mean the world to me. We speak on the phone or chat on social networks. However, I can’t afford to visit under my current circumstances. Revisiting Japan is near the top of my list.

    Finally, to build upon my personal revenue stream(s).

    Location Freedom, I’d love to move to LA and just start life there. Seattle is wonderful but I miss all the different types of people.

    Time Freedom: I have a lot of time since I am fortunate to be in a relationship where I am supported financially right now. But would want my time freedom to be based on my on financial freedom.

    Financial Freedom: I think this is where I will start first. After a long time in high-tech project management, I just plain burned out. Now, I want to give my gifts where there are appreciated and make the most difference. My financial freedom score was “0”. In the next six months I would like to be paying for my own necessities and wants/play money. That would feel amazing!!! I have started my organizing business 2 times and both times gave more than I received. This time I’d like to focus on equal energy exchange.

    Inner Freedom: Having the freedom to be myself and risk losing people or things in my life….that would be wild! And absolutely wonderful!!!

    Freedom here I come!

    Thanks for your amazing book…I can’t put it down. = )

    As I see it, an increase in financial freedom would allow for most of the other partial scores to increase, too. The key to that increase, however, is to get my ‘job’ (read personal business) moving so that I am actually doing the helping and sharing that I love to do.
    While I have started this in part, I have run into perfectionism, distraction, and procrastination pretty hard. Believe I am ready to get past these now.
    First income stream effort – help those who “don’t cook” get away from boxed and ‘nuked’ fast foods and get comfortable in the kitchen putting together healthy meals from basic ingredients.
    When that is set up and working pretty much on auto-pilot, I will move on to some other areas of interest.
    I can do this with the support of a few good people!

    My next 6 months are focused on marketing and signing new Corporate and Life Coaching Clients. I made a committment to myself to train in Spain the month of June, my sister became extremely ill and I am a care giver to her for the next 8 to 12 weeks. I am committed to my love of coaching, however I really want to learn to move huge audiences speaking all over the world for conferences. (The training in Spain was my stepping stone) I will attend this training when it is scheduled again. I am in a marriage and live in an area which I feel is blocking my full potential. My partner settles for middle America, I’m feeling blocked. My biggest question is “Am I getting in my own way?” I want a huge game and I also feel I need to be connected to a good team. As a “lone wolf” I think my full potential may be limited. I want full freedom and to be in my fun Samuri suit everyday.

    Aloha!
    Okay my overall score = 80

    Location freedom = 20 (I live in Maui Hawai’i for 50% of my time while hosting retreats on my book (linked above). Then, I switch to Hawai’i Big Island for 50% of the time to host / facilitate my health and wellness retreats in a tropical rain forest, within 5 mins from the shores and 15 mins to talking participants on lava hikes and about an hour to drive to the top of Mauna Kea is swim in the stars. If I’m called to another city for any length of time, I can ‘move’ my ‘home’ in three suitcases! LOVE it!

    Time freedom = 20. I simply love what I do. I’ve tapped into my calling at an early age. I consider it sacred work to be of service. I really don’t consider a split between ‘work and non-work’ as part of life. Too dualistic. Given I love what I do, I also know how to draw healthy boundaries. I often take silent time to connect into that inner knowing to learn, laugh and grow. This silent times often means traveling to retreat sites to ‘tap into’ more indigenous ways of knowing.

    Financial Freedom – 20. I consider ‘debt’ to be more than financial. Anyone who helps me, I feel strongly called to help them. So, when people spend money to help me, I feel driven to gift them in return as best I can. As for buying what I need, that’s really simple. I’ve lived the life of expensive stuff. Not fulling. What rocks my boat is sharing funds with folks who are actively doing their “work.”

    Inner freedom = 20 – easy. If you doubt that, I’ve got dozens upon dozens of people you can speak to about this. I practice being more and more transparent every day!

    LOVE this stuff! Rock on everyone!!

    Namaste

    I intend to improve all of them, that’s for sure. Don’t have a clear time frame on how it will happen, or which one I start on. So, rather than worry about it, I will make a concious effort to be aware of the things I wish to change, and improve on, and go forward. I am sure the universe will nudge me, when I am doing it.

    Inner Freedom – 10
    Total Score – 30/85

    Well, this is not a surprise for me but makes absolutely clear, where to put focus first.

    The bad thing is, that my Financial Freedom is getting less and less over the last two years, and that is bothering me a lot and decreases the other Freedom areas as well.

    I will put focus on my Financial Freedom till I reach 25.
    In the next 6 months I aim for at least 20.
    The Rest will follow, because I will only do, what I want and what is natural for me to reach this. First I will focus on what I can and want to give.

    Love, Thomas

      Hey give us the recipe.

      Location = 10
      Time = 12
      Financial = 16
      Inner = 17.

      Some of it I could not get to apply. I don’t ‘work’ as such. I am a home-stay mum so have International students come here to study English and stay with me. Now I do everything for them and been doing this for 20+ years and love it. It is a great way to earn income and have freedom as well. And if want to go away on a weekend can do it as they can cook for themselves.

      I have a networking business which I like and go to meetings and work with my team – so that is something I want to see grow.

      And of course to get my book finished.
      I go to church and also do communtiy things and also do assisting in Landmark.

      These are all things I have chosen to do so I have a good life of my own choosing and lots of family.

      My goal is to of course get all those scores up to the maximum.

      Oh and get married again when my book is on the way to going where it is destined to go.

    It is time to have a sense of balance in my freedom. Financial obstacles have grounded the other areas. Time to make a major shift in this area. So I will initially start with Financial and balance the other areas next.

    Thanks for the book and the eye opener.

      Hey Gabriela,

      Great thing you do. I work with a mentally challenged lady, and I have to qualifications, except we are good buddies.
      We ride a bicycle, go bowling, play cards, swim in the swimming pool and now that is almost summer we get to go to the beach. One thing is I worked for a year and a half and now I have to move to another state, she her parents found a substitute for me. I will miss that very much, because It is another world I have to get in when I am spending time with her, and teaches me a lot about the purity of heart.

    Alot of 0’s on my score. I’ve come to the point of realizing one of the truth of the world. You can have it all if you are willing to go get it. You run the business and you control you destiny.

I do operate a online retail business associated with the Amway corp. another success drive company. As with all achievers a common thread is that they will make it happen from what is inside of themsevles. And those who fail will point to those other than thier self.
    That being said I accept full responsiblility for my future success. And thank ahead to all persons and orginizations which I walk on the path with.

    I feel good with this. (David this was fun!) I want to crank up financial freedom(which ive already started looking at this last month, interesting) as well as time freedom.

    Specifically, I would like to knock out my debt (*student loans looming in the background*) AND have 6 months savings built up (wowee!). Also, there are some bigger ticket items stacking up on my desire list..hmmm.

    With time freedom, I want to be able to easily take 10 weeks off, AT ONE TIME, and also expand a little on fulfillment outside of work (and inside of work for that matter :)).

    My goals are to address the Financial Freedom piece so that I may have more money to help others, easily and effortlessly. I’m working on identifying a location that resonates with me more and/or what I would prefer is the ability to travel, a lot more!

    At one time had a relatively high-paying IT profession. Was downsized 5 years ago and unable to get back into the IT field as it was encountering a slump. Have been working at a bank for the past 5 years earning less than half what I was making in the IT field. However, the interesting thing is that I’m almost done writing a book which I believe will be of help to many people (with no idea what to do with it when I’m done) – and now I’m discovering David Wood’s book!

    In 12months i would like to have set foot outside my usual 7 mile radius more regularly. Having a greater certainty of how I could travel or live in a different country part-time.
    Having helped heal people for many years it is time for the artist me to be affluent. Having fun exploring that but not necessarily knowing how this might be prosperous. Everybody loves what I create but how to sell it for what it is worth regularly? More pondering and experimenting, I guess.

    I am going to work on my Inner Freedom. I believe once I get 20 on Inner Freedom, I can achieve all other freedoms with the help of it. So my goal is that by the end of Nov 2010, I will have a score of 20 in the Inner Freedom. Thank you for David, God bless you.

    I have recently restarted working on my artwork and trying to get it working as a side business right now and hoping that in the next 6 months my financial freedom situation jumps, and thereby being able to quit my other job and enjoy painting and being with my kids and family…

    I need to work more on both areas of Financial & Inner Freedoms within the next 6 months. Look forward to making something out of what I can share with other people.

    I was surprised at my Financial Freedom score. Apparently I’m doing a lot better than I expected in that area. I really want to increase my Time Freedom though. At least to 10+ within 6 months.

    I loved doing this, it really made me think about the main area I want to work on. My results are:

    Location – 10
    Time – 14
    Financial – 10
    Inner – 18

    My location will improve in a few weeks time when I move to a beautiful rural area in Spain.

    The area I’m focusing on is ‘finance’. I want more financial freedom and I know things are going to be so much better in all ways when I move.

    I’ve been in Canada for the past year and I’ve not really enjoyed it.
    Part of me feels I should go back to England as my family are there, though 99% of me knows I would be miserable in England again so I’m doing what makes me happy, while still visiting my family often to keep them happy.

    Sometimes we can feel pressured to please everyone else and sacrifice what feels right for us. I truly believe though that we can’t really please others unless we are happy ourselves.

    Love, dance, laugh and be free,

    Scarlett

    In the next six months (somewhere between now and November 5, 2010), I would like to score a ’20’ in the realm of ‘Inner Freedom’–to have my word be powerful because 1) I’ve cleaned up all the messes I’ve left from being out of integrity, and 2) I honor my word to myself, and others.
