What is financial freedom?
“Break the 9-5 routine, achieve financial freedom”, “Get out of the Rat race”. We are bombarded with phrases like that every day. Most people say “That’s nice”, but
in reality don’t believe they will ever be able to achieve their financial freedom. Because of “no can do” attitude, they never do. They go to their 9-5 jobs every day, for 40 years and more! People work till they are 65 and beyond, enjoying retirement for less than 10 years on average.
We go to work every day just to earn money to survive. And it usually isn’t just 9-5, it’s more like 8-6. Add commute time and you are working 60+ hour weeks.
Is there another way? Yes, there is, but you need to do it right, so please read on.
Get Rich Quick (GRQ)?
Many people will try to sell you what is called a Get Rich Quick (GRQ) scheme. They do not work, so Forget them ASAP or spend 40 years of your life chasing rainbows.
Unlike GRQ promise, achieving financial freedom is not an overnight process. It starts by first adopting the right mind set & then executing the right tasks as long as needed.
Instead of spending 40 years dreaming, rather spend 2-5 years actively pursuing your goal.
Financial freedom is only one third of happiness
Don’t be mislead! To be truly happy & live a fulfilled life, money is not enough. You need to have three things in place:
Do what you enjoy doing
Share your fortunes and knowledge with others
I wish you all the best on your path to freedom!
