The Best Things in Life are Free
You’ve got bills to pay and trust me there are even songs devoted to bills. In the modern world, everything revolves around one ultimate thing. It is the biggest problem of all, yet it is the solution to almost all problems; money! Rules like the ‘no free lunch’ rule are actually taught to university students in their courses!(Trust me, I took an exam where an entire question was devoted to the no free lunch rule once!) when I tried entering a business agreement with my friends, everyone warned you by saying, ‘business and friendship are two separate things. Be friends when its time to be friends, be businessmen when it’s the time to be businessmen. Don’t mix it up!’ that pretty much shattered my hopes (along with my business!). this is also one of the main reasons I came up with this post today. When one gets so frustrated about how every single thing has to be given some monetary value, he or she ends up thinking a lot. That’s exactly what I did and I present to you the best things in life that are free!
This is a basic human necessity and yes its free! You can drink all the water you want and swim in as much water as you want. But wait, no this can’t be right. We all pay a utility bill for water. But then, that’s a very very small amount, don’t you think? I mean, that’s like the cost that is needed for the maintenance of the pipes, not the cost of actual water! I mean, come on! Its water for God’s sake! Share the same thoughts? Those were my thoughts too. Until I read about how the CEO of Nestle announced that water should be commoditized and that it should be sold to those who can buy it! With water scarcity on the rise, this doesn’t seem like something inevitable. Since the bottled water industry is so profitable, I wouldn’t be surprised if water was no longer free. So yes, this is something that’s free-at the moment- and something that is one of the best things in life. Try working without water for one day and you’ll know what I mean when you won’t be able to type a single word (I’ll assume you’re a freelancer!)
Inspiration is essential for any individual; it is even more important for someone who happens to be a freelancer. You see, without inspiration, an individual can never get anything great done. In order to do great things, an individual needs to be inspired greatly as well. It is also one of the things that comes free of cost for everyone who wants to attain it! Yes, there is absolutely no price tag associated with inspiration. You can get inspired by anyone or anything and not owe the world anything in return! This is the only factor of production that comes without a cost or risk associated to it. It is thus advisable for all freelancers to make the most from inspiration!
A Goal Worth Working For
A goal you set for yourself is the main driving force that can compel you to achieve great heights. Without the presence of a strong goal, one would not be able to get out of bed in the morning! You see, it is our goals that compel us to wake up, get out of bed and get something done during the course of the day. Like all the things mentioned above, you can get goals and ambitions for free. No, there is no tax on dreaming big and this is perhaps one of the reasons why people dare to dream big. You see, if you aim for the moon, even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars. That is the immense importance of dreaming, aspiring and setting goals.
I saved this for last not because it is less important but because of the fact that out of all the things mentioned, this is perhaps the best thing. Knowing that you are good at something is a truly priceless feeling. You can get this feeling only if you truly believe in yourself. If you start loving your own work, others will love it too. Confidence comes from loving your work and believing it to be truly amazing. If you believe in something, you can make it happen. If you believe in yourself, you will reach heights you have only dreamt of. If you don’t, however, you will find yourself stuck in the same place for years and years. Confidence comes free of cost, however, not having enough confidence can cost you a lot. How you go about it is a choice for you to make! The best things in life truly are free. You just need to look at life from a non materialistic way to be able to see that.
