Well apparently to you Gigi, it means to hustle your book on the discussion forums in an attempt to make a buck.

Question answered.

For the past thirty-six days I have been a part of this Amazon platform. I can't claim to know it very well at the moment. I have seen authors begin discussions and add product links. When I added that question to the discussion boards I was published through Amazon a mere 17 days. I thought that was the reason a product link was provided. Entire forums and days of the week are dedicated to authors posting their work, but thanks for the observation. I appreciate it. Again I am learning as it has literally been a month of experience. Apparently living your own life to some people is defined by making assumptions about complete strangers.

The Smartest Personal Financial Decision EverLiving your own life means being financially in charge. The more financially insecure a person may be, the more likely they feel that have to dance to another persons tune

Sometimes you must give up your soul in order to get mucho $$$. I am not willing to do that to myself anymore at the age of 69.

Financial health is an important aspect of living your own life. It provides freedom. Freedom invites the imagination to soar!

It's unfortunate, yet true! Some people will sell their souls for money. All money isn't good money!

Selling your soul translates as doing what you do not believe in for money, even if you are totally against it, compromising, etc. If you know this you can do something about it, but if you do not know the difference, you will forever search for the 'why am I so unhappy' in your everyday life. Living your best life means being happy with who you are, what you have and where your life is now and not regretting a thing as each life experience is there to teach you something about life and yourself. Look at life as a feast, not a burden, where you have the choice to decide what you want and how you are going to achieve that which is your ultimate purpose. Each choice along the way takes you closer. Recognise when you are 'there' and be grateful, and humbled by the universe who allowed you to get there. Then share your message with the world.

What does living your own life mean? Great question! Perhaps there is no "one size fits all" answer. Why? Each person's life is unique unto them. For example; other things, people, or conditions can make any one's life difficult or easy. With that said: Having the courage to say no, to do what is best for you, without hurting another seems logical. While to take advantage of another, to gain an advantage for yourself, does not seem reasonable. Yet, there are those who sacrifice logic and reason for self gain, or with the intent to control another. Consider this: The only power another has over you, (as an adult), is the power "you" place in their hands! NOW, there have been, and will continue to be examples where this insight may not ring true. Finally, there are those who fear confrontation, or hurting another one's feelings. But, to have the courage to be honest or immaculate with what you say and do, just may answer your question for the many who seek to live their life's "on their terms," and not the terms of another. This "great question" should stir much debate, and I am sure it will be a robust debate. Thanks for the questions, it surly made me think.

Kind regards,

Don Christian Aldrich

WOW! I love, love, love your insight: "and humbled by the universe who allowed you to get there. Then share your message with the world." You seem very wise.

I think that Don shared a great answer. Although I would add that living your own life means thinking for yourself. Shaking off the ideas and opinions, beliefs and brainwashing of those closest to you and society in general and allowing yourself the freedom to think for yourself. I speak of the importance of this in my book "Mastering the Mind by Mixing it Up" not only why this is important but also how to do it and how this process changes so many things in your life. Its definitely the pathway to begin to live "your" own life.

Exactly Sonia. If we don't think for ourselves, others will think for us. You are wise.

John Bryan teaches how to develop your own internal Random Access Memory to use when confronted with a stressful situation. Following the principals outlined in this very readable book, a reader automatically searches their newly developed memory with the speed of a highly developed RAM and pulls up the "affirmations" loaded into your internal RAM, which provide instant guidance to resolve stressful decisions in a positive manner.
