I want to know your definition of what it means to be independent. In a sentence roughly 20 words. To give you an idea of where this is going, I have recently bought property (an incredible nine room home, in Colombia (South America) formerly owned by one of wealthiest tech entreprenuers in Colombia, who has now become a personal friend. I made this transaction about 7 months ago, and I have since created a retreat hotel using the property, sort of like a sanctuary for people to come and experience living outside of the states who might be working on a special life project "life design types" and essentially begin embracing a new way of living.
We embrace healthy eating, (no processed foods, nearly all locally grown produce) working in a creative, almost magical atmosphere, daily exercise (vigorous hiking and crossfit, and partying like rock stars several nights a week. In essence living in the moment and creating the life of your dreams.
I have experienced nearly instant success with this concept. We are the number one hotel on Trip Advisor, we have pages of rave testimonials from people from all over the world, and well, things are moving to another level.
I am creating a Mission board for the front of the house, which essentially explains the philosophy of life inside the hotel.
Among the Mission and Vision I have for the place, there are some additional sections on the board that explain a way of living. One of which is literally entitled "Be Independent" which was originally entitled "Be Self Sufficient" but my girlfriend liked "Be Independent" what's worse is she wrote her description in Spanish which Google sucks at transcribing.
So I am starting fresh with this idea, but going straight to the source of probably the largest community in the world of Independent thinkers. (real Warriors on the forum) I want to know in your wisest words what this really means to you. I am looking for the most bad ass description from the Warrior community. Thanks guys, love you all
