Freedom & Father's Day! - Miles Beckler

Freedom & Father's Day!

For me, the word 'Freedom' best sums up my 'why' behind putting in the work required to create success online.

My wife and I have been on a road trip for a bit now... Keeping the biz growing while roaming.

Just the other day, I realized it was Father's day this weekend...

My dad is in his 70's now... Fun Fact: He grew up in North Dakota with no running water, no indoor plumbing and no electricity...

How crazy of a difference between my upbringing and his, just one generation apart!

Anyways... I just asked Melanie the other day:

"Hey, do you want to go spend a couple days with my parent for Father's Day?"

She replied "Sure!"

So we packed up yesterday... Drove a state and a half away and I got to throw some horseshoes with my pops last night.

Gonna go for a hike with my mom today and maybe do a little river rafting with them both for Father's day.


But here is the point...

Most of the year, I'm at my home office, working my ass off...

I work more than most people who have '40 hour workweeks' with bosses, cubicles and commutes.

Not to mention those 4+ years when I worked the equivalent of 2 full-time jobs... 40 hours per week for the man... Then 40 hours per week for the fam.

Honestly, I love the work...  I'm in love with the process of creating another successful brand online. I feel like I'm being of service to you, which is fun and rewarding on so many levels.

But there are these times... When I am able to go in a random direction because I want to!

Sometimes it is Bali, Europe, or New Zealand... Other times it is just to get to sit around with my parents for a couple days.

It is this freedom that keeps me going when I feel lost...

When I feel confused...

When I feel tired and don't feel like cutting a video.

I know that stopping my momentum and all this freedom could disappear in a moment.

Success is fickle... And not guaranteed.

So I keep pushing... EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Now I share this with you because I want you to think about this:

WHY are you putting in those long hours to build your successful business online?

Why are you willing to set your alarm every day at 5am to get a couple hours of work in before the rest of the world wakes up?

Why you are willing to work from 10pm to 1am every night when everyone else is Netflixing, sleeping or partying...

You can do this... You can create freedom for yourself and your family.

But it takes a crazy amount of work and energy.  And for the first year your results may not 'look like much'

It starts slow, like a freight train from a dead stop... But the momentum builds.

At 5mph a freight train doesn't look like much, but the force and energy and momentum are definitely deceiving and it takes less energy for the next 5mph...

Now, 15 years since I made my first dollar online... I've got a good amount of momentum going.

But now is not the time for me to kick my feet up... Except maybe for a few days when I'm chillin out back with my dad enjoying the time with family.

And no matter what, I still find the time to get my emails, comments and videos done!

Because protecting my 'Why' and my future freedom is as important to me as enjoying this now moment.

P.S.  If you write out your "Why" on a post-it note and stick it on the bathroom mirror where you brush your teeth... You will have a daily reminder of WHY you are pushing through so hard!

That little trick can help you sustain the positive and motivated energy you need to break through and create the success you truly desire!

Finding ways to get leverage on yourself to publish more, to give more value and to force yourself to keep showing up to produce more great content is KEY to your long term success!
