How To Achieve Financial Freedom And Retire Young, Retire Rich
I’ve read “Retire Young, Retire Rich” by Robert Kiyosaki. The book really inspired me a lot and now I’m going to give you what I have learned and did in my journey to financial freedom. Now, if you have been out of money, you lost your confidence, and full of doubt, whether you will be successful or not, rest assured, I’ve been there too. The difference lies in what did I do and what did you do to face it.
Where The Journey Begins
I’m on a journey to financial freedom; I don’t want to spend the rest of my life working in a company just to pay the bills at the end of every month. I want to live my life. I want to be success and rich. I want to be able to travel all over the world while I’m still young, what about you?
I have failed a lot of times in my life before; I have failed too many times in only a couple of years that I became so vulnerable and weak. But the failures that I experienced is not worthless, it made me realize the reasons why only 5% of people in the world failed to achieve financial freedom. The biggest obstacle that you will face is fighting against your own doubt and laziness. Your doubt in yourself and your laziness is what determine and limit yourself. If you want to change your situation, you have to face the doubt against yourself and your laziness. Your doubt and your laziness are the things that make you small and weak. Your doubt and your laziness are the things that keep you away from the lifestyle you always wanted.
If you’re on a journey to become success and financially free, be aware that you will face a lot of obstacles and you need to overcome it. Being success and financially free or rich are not that easy, that’s why only 5% of people in the world managed to get there. Some of them gave up halfway. You will face frustrations and irritations. You will be despised by those people that are afraid to take the road you decided to take. You will lose friends and you will make new ones, but when you get to the top you will realize that it’s all worth it. You will realize that you will feel pain to gain.
There was a moment in my life that I felt really weak, my spirit was really low, I was so scared that I felt everyone was against me, I was too vulnerable at that moment. But then I realized that, it is the time to choose, I’ve walked halfway through, this is the time to choose, to keep growing or give up and go home. At that time, I realized that overcoming the doubt against me and my laziness is the most important thing to do. If I don’t face it, my life will fall backwards.
How Do You Do It?
Now, in this section I won’t be talking about how do you do it, how do you actually achieve financial freedom. But instead, I will be talking about why I choose to do it. I will be talking about why I want to do it. As quoted from Robert Kiyosaki, “How is why we do it, and why I want to do it is because I want to fight against the doubt in myself, my laziness, and my own past”. Why would be the element that will give us strength to do the how.
There have been many person that asks me how do I actually do it, how do I actually do all of this while I’m just 17. I found out that even though I told them how, they would just listened, and feel a bit of comfort in their heart but they won’t take action. The book I read and the experiences I have, made me realize that it is not how to do it but why I do it is more important. Why do I choose this path that is different from 95% of my friends? Why do I choose to be an entrepreneur instead of just quietly finished college time and look for a job that will secure my life? The biggest reasons why people never do what they could do are because they do not have a strong why. After you find your why, it will be very easy to find your own how to achieve riches and success. Most people never look into their own life to know why they would want to be rich, but instead they are busy looking for a simple way to riches, and the problem with the simple way are it always leads to a dead end.
Finding Your Why
The process of finding my why actually shows up when I felt really angry with myself, I’m angry when I saw that my mom needs to walk from one place to another without having a car that could shelter her from the rain, I’m angry when I saw myself in the mirror and I couldn’t afford to buy a better clothes for myself and my family, I’m angry when I couldn’t give what my dad and my mom wants even though I was only 15 at the moment. I was so angry with myself that I wanted a change. Now let me tell you my why:
1. I’m sick of being broke and that I always had to ask for money or work really hard to earn money.
2. I’m sick of being a mediocre or average person. My society, my school actually makes me realize this. Everyone is living the same life. They spent 12 years in school, after finishing school they continue to college, where they spent another 4 years and then they go and find a job to spend the rest of their life. I hate being an average person where there are millions of people like me. I wanted to be better.
3. I hate it when I saw my mom and dad had to be frustrated over money. They needed more money; they have worked for their all life. I wanted to give them a better life.
Do Not Kill Yourself With Your Mind And Your Words.
Every human being always has a war going on inside their sub-conscious mind. Some people kill their own success by saying negative words and having negative thoughts inside their head. Even though when somebody offers them a great idea that is realistically good, their mind will manage to find a reason to object to the idea. They will say something like:
1. I cannot do it
2. I don’t know how to do it
3. I will do it next year, or next month, or even tomorrow
4. People never understand my situation
5. I need more time
6. But I don’t have money
Robert Kiyosaki says that desire is a combination of love and hate. To be success, you need to have a strong and burning desire to have the success you want. If you want to have something, you must have a strong desire. The energy you need comes from the desire inside you. Find the why that makes you love something you want to have and hate why you don’t have it.
Now, I want you to make a list of things you hate and you love. You can start from the simplest things like you love success and you hate failure, and you will go on and on about this. After this, I want you to write your dream, your goal, and your plan on achieving your success and financial freedom as soon as possible. Here is an example on how to make your list:
Wearing expensive clothes
Being a failure
Wearing cheap clothes
It will motivate you and eventually you will find your desire on why you would want to be rich. Money may not make you happy, but money can buy you time for you to spend with your family, money can let you travel to other places in this world, which will all lead you to happiness. Find your desire and I’ll keep on providing content for you to follow on.
