If you’re in the U.S., happy Fourth of July! Independence Day is all about celebrating freedom and our right to express ourselves in a way that is unique to us. This could mean starting or growing a business that you love, taking control of your health, or focusing more time on your passions and hobbies.

This summer is the perfect time to embrace your independence by focusing on the things you love and kick-starting your dreams. No matter what you’ve set out to achieve this summer, these five steps will help you liberate your passion and reach your goals.

  1. Self-Assess – Is your current work fulfilling? If not, it’s time to step back and take a levelheaded look at what’s working, and what’s not to help you determine what your true passion is.
  2. Make a Decision – Visualize exactly what you want. Is it a new business venture? Getting healthy inside and out? Spending more time with your family? Take some time to picture your end goal.
  3. Create a Plan – devise a clear plan with small, actionable steps that lead to bigger accomplishments. Decide when you’ll accomplish each stage, and write it in your calendar.
  4. Reach Out – Put out the word that you are starting a new adventure. Make a list of the people who can help you, contact them as needed, and be sure to say thank you!
  5. Follow Through – Your commitment now will really pay off later, so connect with your confidence and perseverance, and see your new project through to the end!

What does freedom mean to you this summer?
