Achieve Financial Freedom
The blog you are able to read is one that touches on financial freedom. If financial independence is having enough income to cover the basic necessities (housing, food, expenses), financial freedom probably can be defined as the state where you don't have to work and everything that you can think of is essentially covered.
What does financial freedom mean to you? Does it mean not having to work and yet still be able to settle the daily bills? Does it mean being able to do what you love without fear of not being able to put food on the table for your family? Does it mean being free to breathe in the fresh air and enjoy life as God truly meant it to be?
Many people have been mislead to thinking that getting a good education and getting a good job will lead them to financial security, financial independence or even financial freedom. This simply is not true. While it might be indicative of how easy it might be to get to your destination, it does not guarantee you anything.
Or maybe you do not have a good education or a good job. But that does not mean that you cannot achieve financial freedom.
To achieve financial freedom, you need to recognise that it goes beyond simple mathematics. It has a lot more to do with your perceptions, your thinking and your mind. Financial freedom is not merely about your finances. It is so much more than that. It is about living a life that you deserve - a life that is extraordinary.
