Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference
"A better path to financial freedom?" My wife and I asked ourselves this same question. According to what we learn from school, our parents, and other professionals, financial freedom can only be attained by:
Layoffs and unemployment after devoting an entire lifetime to a company
Losing their home after accelerating payments to the lending institution
Massive losses in their 401k investments and other safe and secure government retirement plans
Less enjoyment of money
Are you experiencing this? Have you begun to question everything you've learned thus far? If you have, you'll find answers to those questions, and much more, here.
What the Rich Do
If you take away just one lesson from this website, I hope it's this:
The rich don't do things slightly different from the poor and middle class, they do the complete opposite.
In order to do things differently, you must think differently or else you'll be sucked back into your old ways.
We choose to be different. In our mid 20s, we decided to go against the grain.We want to be financially free early and enjoy an abundant lifestyle at the same time. It wasn't easy, but we knew it was time to...
So what changes have we made? A lot.
We have changed our mindset. We focus on our productive thoughts, rather than the destructive ones. This can be difficult, especially when situations don't go according to plan. The way you think is the way you live.
