You would have seen so many posts from me on compounding and rates of return and long term planning to build a large asset base even with small monthly automatic deductions from your account.
The objective of doing all this is not to stop living today for a better tomorrow.
The idea of financial freedom that I talk about is to ensure that you are no longer forced to do things for earning money. I have always wanted to have financial freedom so that I could go out and achieve all the items on my bucket list.
These items on my bucket list are what will give me experiences with my family which will in turn make me happy. I have already shared how I used these principles to travel to different countries.
The end objective of getting Financial Freedom and Financial Independence is Happiness today and in the future.
If you have to work in a job ,which does not make you happy, just because you don’t have the money then you find another job or use the magic of compounding so that over a period of time at least you are in a position to leave the job and do things which make you happy.
Through intermediate milestones, in accumulating wealth, you use the wealth to get experiences . Wealth is not to be accumulated for the sake of getting to a number. You have to enjoy the journey and be happy through all of it.
Till next time then find reasons to be happy.
