We are a people who have historically been on the verge on extinction We have been at many times, under much stress Since being brought into this country On many, many slave ships Preparations, reparations from segregation

To me, I think we should celebrate freedom everyday. One may ask, well how can you celebrate freedom in a world where these same people still feel oppressed and devalued. My answer is to choose freedom of your mind. Once that happens, you can shift your perspective of what freedom looks like.
The other day, I had an encounter that prompted this soul-flection. I was in the company with my trading family studying, laughing, just enjoying each other. As I was leaving, there was two brothers outside that apparently overheard our joy-our freedom. One of them said to me, "Y'all just having a good ol' time". I responded, "Hehe, yeah up there on these charts trading". Then his response, "Must be nice to be so free". I honestly didn't have any words after that. I was speechless.
What made him think that we were worthy of freedom and he (they wasn't). Later, I watched the movie #thematrix and it hit me. He is stuck in the program. The matrix. Then I came across a excerpt from the book, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
There are millions of people who BELIEVE themselves "doomed" to poverty and failure, because of some strange force over which they BELIEVE they have no control. They are the creators of their own "misfortunes," because of this negative BELIEF, which is picked up by the subconscious mind, and translated into its physical equivalent.
This encounter just confirmed all of this. We have to allow positive thoughts of our wants, desires, dreams, goals to triumph over EVERYTHING. If not, then the construct will write it for you.
I want us all to experience true freedom by being rooted in wealth: mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and financially. When we cultivate wealth through these 5 pillars, we are indeed FREE.
