What does that even mean? Financial Freedom?
That term is so easily thrown around these days, by self-proclaimed “gurus” and others selling you a bill of goods. Does it mean anything?
The good news is… YES! Just because the phrase has become overused doesn’t mean that financial freedom isn’t a reality.
It’s real and it’s achievable. And today I want to help you get started on your path.
Imagine being completely free from owing anybody a DIME. No more monthly payments just to avoid collections, no more stress from overwhelming bills, no more knowing your money isn’t really yours, that it’s already gone.
Imagine fully owning your vehicles and your house. Then imagine not needing to work for income but for fulfillment.
THAT’S what full financial freedom looks like.
And I want to let you in on a secret…
It’s not about the money.
There’s a popular saying that is wrongly attributed to the Bible which says, “Money is the root of all evil.”
MILLIONS of people believe this!
This is a huge problem. For one, it promotes a mindset that inspires fear of money! For another, it gives money more power than it deserves.
The true quote is “the LOVE of money is the root of ALL SORTS of evil”.
What a huge difference!
Knowing this, here are three steps to get you started on the road to financial freedom, understanding what wealthy (“financially free”) people understand:
- Stop fearing money.
By laying down all fear of money we can begin to face our issues with it! And trust me, most of us have issues with money!
Just spend five minutes on Google researching the average American and their debt situation. Serious issues!
Most don’t take initiative because they are intimidated by finances, so they avoid it or make decisions as a victim.
So today, take a look at your financial situation, your bank balance and statement, your income, your debts, and declare, “I’M TAKING BACK CONTROL!”
- Master Money
This is going to take time, but you can start today! Begin to master it!
Money is not evil, it just IS. It can be used for good OR evil. It’s a tool. Which means it can be mastered.
We’re not taught much of anything about money in our educational system, and unfortunately most of our parents had just as bad an education as we did, so they weren’t able to teach us much either. This means that we have to take the initiative to start getting educated now!
Despite popular opinion, wealthy people aren’t wealthy by luck! They are the ones who have taken the time to understand how money works. They have set aside any fear of finances and any victim mentality, and they have sought to MASTER it.
So today make a commitment to begin seeking out resources to learn everything you can about increasing your income, eliminating your debt, investing, saving, and anything else involving money.
As your knowledge grows you’ll be amazed at how things start to shift!
- Understand, Money is NOT the Most Important THING
This should go without saying, but I need to say it anyways.
Money is not the most important thing!
You cannot let it master you.Today, sit down and take some time to write down your priorities in life.
The things that fulfill you and are most important.
The point is to realize how money will never bring you happiness. Buying things will never fulfill you.
If you can find true joy and fulfillment, you will find the resolve to break free of all the bad habits of the past. The things that kept the pile of debt growing.
Money follows those who can hold it loosely, in a good way. Those who follow passion, inspiration, and true fulfillment instead. Find that, and you’ll be well on your road to financial freedom.
These three tips are only the beginning! But I’ve found they are absolutely necessary in order to find freedom.
I bless you on your journey!
