Is Money Keeping You From Your Dream Life?
Have you ever felt like money or work is keeping you from your ideal life? Do you want to lead a particular lifestyle, but feel stuck in the daily grind? Do you feel married to your job? Do you have options to allow you to pursue other ventures, or do you feel limited because of the need to make money? Maybe you envision yourself with a family, and the ability to stay home with that family … to teach your children what you know, and to be there as they grow. Maybe you wish to travel the world and integrate into a new culture. Maybe you want to learn a new hobby or trade, start an organization, or research something that interests you. However, you cannot ignore the fact that you need money to live.
Everything I have just described encompasses what many people feel day to day. Unfortuntately, money remains to be the one thing that keeps people from living the life they dream of. Money is the most common reason why married couples get into arguments. Why societies go to war. Why we are stuck at work, ALL THE TIME.
We always say money shouldn’t matter, when the truth is, money affects our daily lives. Saying money does not matter is a flippant way of dismissing a topic that we should all be talking about. What we should be saying instead is that we want to work towards money not dictating the way we live our lives. That’s what financial independence is all about. We can use money as a tool in order to be free to live the lives that we wish to live. Because once you have control over your finances, it will no longer control you.
