Do you visualize millions of dollars when you think about the road to financial freedom? That may seem out of reach and overwhelming!
It’s especially true if you don’t have much money right now.
That’s the first misconception about financial freedom. You may think that you need to be very wealthy or of millionaire status.
I’ve seen so many people start on a path to achieve financial freedom but then they quit. Why: Because it’s too overwhelming to close the gap between where they are now and millionaire status.
So the first thing you need to do is change your thinking about what it means to be financially free. You don’t have to be a millionaire at all to live comfortably and without worry.
Today I want to give you another way to think about the road to financial freedom as well as plan to get there. It’s within reach even if things are not going your way right now.
Change Your Mindset from Hoping To Doing
Do you spend your time wishing you earned more money? Or hoping you had less financial worry?
Stop that way of thinking. For example, if you focus on wishing things will happen, they won’t! Seriously, you need to have a plan and take action!
Change Your Mindset from Spending to Saving
The first part of the plan is live below your means. Most people live beyond their means and never dig out of their financial hole. That is exactly how our society is set up.
I personally live a frugal lifestyle. It just works for me. I don’t need a lot of “stuff.” I prefer experiences and creating memories that last a lifetime.
For example, a few years ago, I looked in my closet and realized I didn’t wear 75% of the clothing that I had spent lots of money on! That won’t lead to any type of financial independence!
These days, I purchase clothing that is well made and will last a long time. I make sure I really like it. So now I have less clothing but I make use of all of it.
What can you do in your life to be more frugal with your spending?
Start implementing simple changes in your life and then stash that money in a savings account!
Start a Home Business on Your Road to Financial Freedom
Can you find financial free through a home business?
Sure you can. It all depends on what you want and what you are willing to do.
A home business will give you the flexibility you need to earn income, in addition to your job. This is such a brilliant way to get started!
For example, use your day job income for living expenses. Then, use your home business income for savings!
Imagine how much you can save in a year if you really gave it your all in terms of effort!
Another advantage of a home business is the low overhead. With a small (under $200) investment, you truly have a chance to make a huge difference in your financial future.
Feeling stuck or not having the ability to make choices due to finances is the worst feeling ever. Believe me, I have been there.
Here’s what I did when I started my home business:
- I learned the foundation skills of the business.
- I transitioned those skills online to continue building my business.
Here’s why the online component was so important:
- You have the freedom to live anywhere.
- You can build your business with online content (social media, blog, video)
- You don’t have to ship or distribute anything.You have the freedom to schedule your business activities whenever you want.
- The list can go on.
Here’s why I believe the online component was my best path to financial freedom.
Right now, I am packing up my life and moving across the country to be closer to my family.
It’s because I can and my business won’t miss a beat!
Am I wealthy beyond words? No, but I live my life with choices and options of my own choosing (like moving across the country!)
It’s all about freedom. Whatever that means to you.
I’ve already told you a little of what it means to me.
What if you could make proactive decisions instead of reactive decisions in your life? Think about breaking down your wall of financial worry.
Financial independence is a process.
Here’s the thing….. Until now, I’ve been happily doing my thing online, seeing it grow incrementally. Now I am ready to share that with others.
