Salvation is calling! Unfounded beliefs about what constitutes “freedom” have left many perplexed. To understand the concept of salvation, one must ask, what being truly free means? How can someone break free from the shackles of society and dream of following their passion? Such thoughts sometimes make you wonder about life in general and your purpose in this world. Seeking to achieve high goals in life requires discipline and faith, and it is about the struggle and turning disbelievers into your supporters. Moving forward in life can be challenging as many of us take very calculated steps with minimum risk. Freedom of choice and voice is something that we all dream of, which is uninfluenced by society or any other requirement. To put it in other words, at some point in life, we want to genuinely feel like a bird – spread our wings and fly high in the sky.

To better understand the idea of freedom and learn how we can seek it within our lives and soul, Greg Atkinson sheds some light. He is the Founder of Worship Impressions and the First Impressions Conference as well as the Co-Founder of the Social Media Church Conference.

Almost 17 years ago, Greg Atkinson started his first business. As a child, he grew up watching his parents start their small business that went on to become quite successful. Since 2005, he has successfully started six businesses, including running his own social media marketing company. Moreover, Greg has been featured in Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, Christianity Today, and on CBS, FOX, and NBC.

Greg Atkinson has been an inspirational personality and a role model for many. In fact, Greg has touched many lives through sheer hard work, honesty, and complete dedication and has guided millions of youngsters toward their goals and careers. Due to his vast experience and knowledge as well as his interaction on YouTube with great leaders of our time, Greg Atkinson makes sure to share his wisdom with everyone. Greg has some simple steps one can follow to be genuinely free from every constraint, laying a road map to success. 

When it comes to salvation, Greg is of the view that getting rid of bad habits and staying away from sins and laziness is the way to go. According to the entrepreneur, speaker, and leadership coach, to walk on the path of success, the first step is to accomplish our goals. And for that, we all need to have self-belief. Until an individual doesn’t believe in themself, their position in life will never change. It all starts with the mind. Truth be told, self-doubt can cause you to lose confidence in your ability and talent, which makes you miss out on great opportunities and moments in life.

As far as the second step is concerned, an individual is required to work hard without any excuses. He highlights that no one except you would be enthusiastic and energetic about your dreams, and it would be best if you worked day and night to make your dreams turn into reality. He also elaborates that if you are on the road to success nobody will see your effort and struggle – they will be jealous of you and will only try to pull you down. Such people will seek pleasure when they see you fail miserably. However, such doubters should not shake your faith in following the right path. Don’t pay any heed to their negative comments; your eyes should always be on the goal. Most importantly, make sure never to settle for anything less. 

Greg also advises about the fear of losing. He points out how he struggled when he embarked on his journey as an entrepreneur. Like everyone, he too, feared failure. He was cornered by limited funding. However, he has always been a dreamer and believes hard work will surely bring success. In the beginning, he faced some downs, but his can-do attitude and faith in himself guided him towards success. He firmly believes, “Learning is a part of life. Living in regret of failure is better the not trying.” For people like Greg Atkinson, there is no such thing as failure. There will be ups and downs in any path you choose, but learning from your mistakes and taking advice from peers is the way to go. Just keep on focusing on opportunities and effort. Uninterrupted by the negativity of society, people like Greg Atkinson are an inspiration for us all.
