“I have savings, I have a brand new Range Rover, a house, Iphone 11… I have the “toys” I want…but I don’t feel free. I still have to work hard for my money every day…even though I now consistently make 5 figure income per month. And if I stop working tomorrow, I will not last more than a couple of months.”
That’s what I heard from a successful businesswoman I spoke with recently. And I hear similar stories often…. Although many people have been impacted by the “Covid-related” economic contraction, they seem to be having hard time adjusting their appetite for more “toys.”
Please forgive me but I felt like sharing this rant with you today.
We live in a consumer society. We are brainwashed by traditional and social media that if we want to feel good about ourselves, we need this or that luxury – a bigger house, a better car, more “toys.”
Our holidays became commercialized so much that we often forget the real reason we celebrate them….
We’re accustomed to expect instant gratification and that often requires spending more than we have on “toys” so that we feel adequate and successful. Many people fake their financial success….
And the ease of getting credit cards fuels the addiction to “wealth consumption”. Even though interest rates have been historically low for some time now, the credit card interest rates didn’t go down at all. Debt became a chronic problem for many.
So, it’s not surprising, although very frustrating to me, to hear that financial independence is just a pipedream.
Look… Financial Independence is a realistic objective if you make it important.
No, it doesn’t mean that you’ll have all the money in the world. It also doesn’t mean that you have to be so fabulously wealthy that no matter how foolish you are with money, you still would never have to work for money again.
Money likes attention. Money likes speed.
Money likes respect. Money likes organization.
Money likes direction. Money like purpose.
Financial Independence simply means that you can maintain your current lifestyle – perhaps even have a better one – without having to work!
It requires that you change your thinking patterns and learn how to make your money work for you instead of only focusing on making more and keeping your money stagnant in your bank or spending it on more “toys”.
You may be surprised, but it doesn’t matter whether you’re a social worker who is struggling to make ends meet or someone who is earning a great salary or has a very profitable business.
I’ve met millionaires who were NOT financially free and secretaries who created financial freedom and retired early.
In fact, financial independence is often easier to attain for those who learned to maintain their lifestyle on less money.
And you can do it without feeling stingy and without clipping coupons! So, here’s the thing….
If being financially independent is your top-of-mind thinking for 2021… if you’re done procrastinating, waiting and worrying how you can have a life where you never have to worry about money again – let’s connect in person.
