Are you ready for freedom?
Let’s face it, right or wrong, money buys freedom. The less money you have, the fewer options you have. The more money, the more options open up to you as far as how you can spend your time, where to travel, where to stay, and what to do.
- You can start projects that require funding.
- You can buy other people’s time and have them work towards your goals.
Without money, you are unable to buy other people’s time, so you sell your time to others. You’re unable to buy the things you want, so you settle for the things that are just enough.
Money is freedom, and freedom is created.
Real life is not like the National Anthem, an inspiring commercial, a poem or a song. Life is hard, brutal, and many times unfair.
- If you are at a job you hate, you aren’t free.
- If your job or income depends on the economy, you are not free.
- If you lack the ability to stay motivated, you are not free.
Freedom includes stable income, increasing income, and ultimately multiple flows of income that result in wealth. While it seems that everyone should have freedom, the reality is around 50 million people in this country depend on government subsidies just to exist month to month.
The average American only makes enough money to save 4% of their total income.
Just because you are an American doesn’t guarantee your freedom. Ask yourself, when was the last time you created a plan for freedom, much less one that involved creating wealth? If you haven’t done so in the last seven days, there is a very good chance you won’t achieve it.
Having real freedom requires a tremendous commitment to a different level of life. This is what the 1% know that others don’t know. The rich aren’t working for money, they are striving for freedom. They want control over their time and freedom from financial worries. They invest to have the ability to go and do what they want.
Make a commitment to your freedom today:
- You and only you are responsible for your freedom.
- Freedom is something you have to create every day.
- Sacrifice comfort for freedom.
Freedom is not just an American theme, it is something that every man and woman should have, but freedom isn’t free. It requires commitment, sacrifice, discipline and a plan.
