Today I decided you good people need some mental exercise.
You can do this at your desk or outside in the sunshine with a cup of tea, pen and paper. So here goes:
Question: What does financial freedom look like to you.
My answer: Check out the view from my home office My Office View
When I ask this of my clients I get a variety of answers including
i) not having to get up at sparrow’s (5:00 AM!) and spending an hour commuting each way bumper to bumper dodging traffic and the odd road rager (psycho) to a job with people you would rather not spend more time than necessary. Ok, that sounds a mite negative but it is true for some people. Personally when I was working for the man, there were people in my workplace I really liked whilst some others….(you get the picture).
ii) being able to donate your time and a truckload of money to The Lost Dogs Home, or all your charities or medical research bodies looking at cures for cancer, heart disease etc
So what is my point?
Here’s a handy tip for creating your personal vision of financial freedom.
We are mainly visual kinds of beings i.e., seeing a picture (as in a picture is worth a thousand words) works for most of us.
Whilst using words to describe your vision of financial freedom is a great first step to getting to your goal, pictures are even better-especially moving pictures.
I have included a short clip of the view from my home office. I pinch myself that this is what I wake up to every morning at the civilized hour of 8:30AM instead of 05:30AM and a 45 min drive each way through Dodgem Car Highway (to Hell).
This clip is not to meant to taunt but to encourage you to make a break for it.
Too much of a stretch for you right now?
Then head over to my online store to download my interviews with self made millionaires.
They had their doubts and frustrations but it did not stop them from taking that first, tentative step.
In other words, they were no different from where you are right now.
The difference is that they took action. Give yourself permission to start today by taking the action of answering the question: What does financial freedom look like to you.
