Who Are You and What Do You Really Want?

Who Are You and What Do You Really Want?

hey everyone welcome back i'm tatiana
and in today's video we are going to
tok about
freedom so i tok a lot about financial
freedom on this channel
and the reason being is because i
strongly believe that creating your
financial freedom
is of utmost importance especially now
i think with current uh life events
we're
seeing the fragility of our system and
so
it is our responsibility to create
financial freedom because
if you don't then at least in
north america the culture is a working
culture
where work is your life right it's oh
what's your name what do you do
you know you identify with your work
because you are doing it every single
day you
end up living a life where it is
the same thing day by day you get a nine
to five monday to friday
you clock in you clock out every single
day it's the same
every single week it's the same every
single month it's the same
and the years go by and the decades go
by and you're on this hamster wheel that
keeps on spinning
and then you look forward to the day
that you get to retire
maybe 65 if you're lucky and when 65
comes around you're expecting that you
can retire with a nice pension
but to your alarm there's no more money
in the pension fund
and so you have to take a cut and
because you have lifestyle expenses to
pay for
you can't afford that cut in your
pension with inflation
and the economy and so you have to hop
back on that hamster wheel
the days that you thought you would
retire and finally enjoy life and
finally get to experience and travel the
world and see
all of the beauty that there is in this
planet that we call earth
but no because of the system you've got
to go back to work
and so it's such a shame that this
is what we call life it's like it's just
work and i think that when you can take
your financial
future into your own hands by creating
financial freedom
that allows you to have freedom because
you no longer have to go to work you no
longer have to do certain things
you do what you want to do what excites
you what brings you joy what you're
passionate about and so that's why i'm
so strongly
such an advocate for you know building
an online
business because it's one vehicle to
achieving financial freedom
and if you're one of the few who loves
the job that you have you
thoroughly enjoy it then that's amazing
that's great
you've found something very special
because the reality is the majority of
people
hate their jobs so that's why i'm an
advocate for financial freedom but
that's not what this video is about
i actually want to tok just about
freedom in general
i've been really pondering this the last
couple days and really thinking about
what a strange society
we live in you know like at least i
can't speak for the rest of the world
because i've experienced different
cultures where it's
very different but we live in a culture
where success fame beauty
all of these things are very highly
rewarded and
because they're so rewarded from the
moment we are
born these pure little and innocent
babies
our parents are already conditioning us
because they love us they want us
to enjoy life and so they want us to be
successful or famous or beautiful or
liked or funny or whatever it may be
with our own best interests they're
trying to train us
so they tell us you can do this you
can't do this this is good this is bad
this is what's polite this is impolite
this is who you need to become
and so they give us this name they give
us this
what we can and we cannot do and we grow
up and we start to create these
identities for ourselves
and it happens also when you start going
to school
usually grade school maybe high school i
experienced this in high school
where you know all of a sudden you're in
this this world with a lot of different
people your age and you start to see
these different cliques these different
groups and you see
there's like you know the popular kids
the jocks you know maybe the geeks and
the nerds
maybe the goths maybe the um you know
who knows what all these different
groups and you're just standing there
and you're like
well you know where do i belong where
can i sit and eat lunch
and it's it's it's quite a shock because
as human beings we are
we want to connect we want to belong we
want to be a part of a community it's
who we
are in the in the animal kingdom there
are certain animals that
you know they live alone in isolation
and others that live in in tribes
and for us we love to be part of
community and so eventually you just
decide okay i'm gonna pick that one
and then you go there and you show up
and now
you're just doing whatever you can to be
liked you're doing whatever you can to
fit in
so you're toking different you dress
different you behave different
you become whatever you got to become
just so that you can be a part of
and that's the thing is that we
we put on these masks we put on these
masks from an early age
and we grow up and we continue to wear
that mask
and the mask as as we get older it feels
like the mask gets
thicker you know it's almost like what's
that that that movie
the the green mask
and it's like it becomes hard to take
off and you don't even realize you're
wearing the mask
at some point at some point in time you
don't even realize you're wearing a mask
anymore
and that's where it becomes dangerous
but at some point
you hit a threshold you know maybe it's
after you graduate university
and you no longer have those clicks of
friends or
maybe it's you know you're in your job
and you're just sitting there one day
and you're like
what is this you know you have to hit
tony robbins says that
change only happens when you hit that
point of threshold
where you you either hit that low and
for most people to low
when you have your back up against the
wall and you're just like enough is
enough
like i can't take this anymore that's
when change happens
and so at some point you might get to
that point where you feel like you know
what i i just don't feel like i'm myself
i feel like i've been putting on this
mask you know i have this body and my
name is
tatiana it's a name that was given to me
when i was born
and i was told to be like this and i
morphed into this and i became this and
i acted like this and
and then you start to realize that you
know who am i beyond this
who am i behind beyond the hair and the
makeup and the name
and the body who am i at my core and
that's where it becomes
really hard because then you have to
decision to make
you have to decide do i express myself
and just remove the mask and be my
authentik
and vulnerable self to the world and
expose myself like that
or do i just keep wearing the mask it's
safer to wear the mask
because this is what everybody knows
this is who i was
and who i am and you know this is how
people like me this is how i fit into
society this is all i know
and to remove the mask requires great
risk
because when you remove the mask all of
a sudden you're now you're putting
yourself out there
and you're saying you know what i might
lose my friends
maybe some family maybe i'm going to be
ostracized
you know i don't know what could happen
and to be that vulnerable is so hard to
open your heart up like that and to be
your authentik self and so you have a
decision to make
and the majority people won't take that
mask off and they live their life
and get older and older and older
wearing that mask and all the while
feeling the sense within them where it's
like
something just doesn't feel like like i
don't feel like i am
like this is really my life you know it
happens in moments it's it's
moments of time it's not like you feel
like that every day you get
moments where you're looking out the
window you're just like
huh like is this me is this who i really
am is this what i really want is this
the life that i really
wanted to create for myself and
for the people who are brave enough to
remove that mask
who are brave enough to put themselves
out there and to say you know what like
it or
hate it those are the people who get to
experience
freedom freedom for the first time
and the beautiful thing about
death is that most people
spend their whole lives wearing the mask
up until their deathbed
and then on their deathbed even then
they are fighting
and fighting and resisting um death in
itself
because they feel like they are just
this body and this body is going to
perish
and you know then there comes a point
where the doctor said there's nothing
else we can do
you know we're not gonna stop the chemo
we're gonna stop the medication
and then the dying person finally
relaxes and finally just accepts
and when they do that there's that
moment where that mask is finally taken
off
because at that point on the death bed
there's nothing left to lose
there is nothing left to lose there and
i think that's one of the beautiful
things some people will say that it's
it's beautiful to see someone die and as
as as
creepy as that sounds i understand it
because you can for once you see someone
who is just
uninhibited they're just themselves and
they're not
worried about fitting in about making
enough money about being successful
about all of these statuses
and all of these different things that
this world partikularly this culture
that we live in
um you know pours on us from the moment
we're born to the moments that we are on
our deathbed it's just a heavy load it's
a heavy burden
and you just see that freedom and that
freedom and that
acceptance of oneself and so
you know i feel like it's just really
important to realize this
um if you if you're wondering what it
tastes like to have freedom i'm sure
you've experienced it before
freedom is is is experienced whenever
you feel
that peace that sense of flow some
people you know for example a surfer if
you're someone who loves going surfing
and you're just surfing in the ocean on
those waves and you're just present
you're just there it's just you and the
waves and just
mother nature and you're just riding
those waves and
that flow that presence that's freedom
you're uninhibited there's nothing
you're not worried about work you're not
worried about the deadlines you're not
worried about the kids you're not
worried
it's just presence and freedom to be
your authentik
self and so we all have had tastes of it
in life you know
even me and my relationship with my
partner my fiancee and i we have a very
i think a very rare relationship and i
and i don't say that
uh in any kind of um you know rude way
but i i feel like we do because
i when i'm with him i am 100 myself
and he is 100 himself and i
cannot i have not ever been like that
with another human being to have that
level of closeness
where you are uninhibited and authentik
and
genuine and you're not afraid of
anything
you know you're not afraid to just to
just be open
and vulnerable and that's very special
and so we've all experienced
moments and tastes of it but to live
life like that
on a regular like that's that's life
right that's exciting and i feel like it
is such a shame that the majority of us
will never get to experience that even
and the reason i want to share this with
you guys on this channel is because i
tok a lot about the principles of
success
the things that are going to help you to
become successful
you know to to build a successful amazon
business to build a successful brand
and those principles though they work
and they're going to help you but
oftentimes
the principles of success are not the
same as the principles of fulfillment
and i want you guys to understand that
because the awareness is everything
you just need to have the awareness so
that in moments you can catch yourself
and the principles of fulfillment it's
not like you need to
attain fulfillment it's not something
out of reach fulfillment is just
discovering it within yourself and so i
just want to share this today and just
give you guys something to ponder maybe
you think i'm crazy that's totally
fine sometimes i think i'm crazy too but
it's just um really trying to look at
the big picture i think sometimes we're
so
caught up in life we're so freaking busy
all the time
especially this culture in north america
where it's like go go go
do you do do get done like we don't
have a moment to sit down
and just think and just think about life
and think about you know okay what am i
here for
like what do i want to achieve or to
create
you know what do i enjoy and
when you discover that then you can
start figuring out what are the steps
that you need to do and put in place in
order to achieve that in order to get
yourself to that place
and so i believe that all of us can do
that you know if you've got
internet connection you're watching this
video you are in a
very uh great position you know you
are um you're doing really well you know
a lot of people do not have access to
the internet
and therefore they don't have the same
opportunities as us
so i would just encourage you to start
thinking about how you can create your
life
instead of just living life day by day
because it passes by
so fast and so think about the
intentions
and creating a life that is juicy enough
that you wake up in the morning and you
are excited
to start your day you know like i i
truly believe that if you've never
had a day where you woke up excited to
go to work
you're not doing something that you love
and the majority of us
are going to spend most of our lives
working so you might as well do
something you love
even if that means cutting the paycheck
i
i can tell you now because before i
made money and have become financially
successful
i thought that you know i thought that i
needed to get a job that pays money
and that's the problem right that's the
hamster wheel where in this society you
need to make money
to to have a living to have a certain
lifestyle and so oftentimes we'll opt
for the job that's going to pay more
rather than the job that we would
actually enjoy
and i think that's the mistake and so i
can tell you now that i'd much rather
be i'd much rather be like you know the
the person who is like enjoying
every day in life and just like not
taking life too seriously and having a
good time
and just loving life
than someone who's just super successful
who's stressed and who has
feels like they always have to do
certain things and have certain burdens
and certain work
it's just a very different perspective
and i think that
we think that we can't make that choice
but we can we think that oh well i can't
be that person
because i've got all these
responsibilities but that's just the
mask that's
toking right so if you take off the
masks
then your perspective will change so
thanks for watching this video guys
hit the thumbs up if you if you get what
i'm saying

below i'll see you in the next one
