To the Freedom...

Edition 153 - July 4, 2021

Happy Fourth of July! 

This is a holiday that celebrates the independence of America. 

Since continental congress voted in favor of independence on July 2nd then two days later, delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence; July 4th has been a day that represents celebration for the independence and freedoms we have in America.

Hope you guys take the time to enjoy this holiday and celebrate the independence that we have. 

According to Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People; to go from dependent to independent takes the development of the first three habits such as being proactive, beginning with the end in mind, and putting first things first. These habits takes time and discipline to shape into one’s character and tendencies, but once these habits are formed, powerful effects take place as one evolves from being someone who is dependent or at the mercy of outside factors to someone who gains the freedom of having independence within their life.  

 Just like it is not easy to gain independence within one’s mindset and habits according to Stephen Covey, it wasn’t easy for America to gain its independence from the British Crown. It took a long American Revolutionary War from 1775 to 1783 before the United States of America was established.  

Hope everyone takes the time to enjoy the freedoms that we have today. Happy Independence Day!
