Why is freedom is so elusive for most of us?
I’m not talking about retirement, I’m talking about freedom.
Freedom to do what you want to do, when you want to do it, and with whom you want to do it.
That means, if you love what you are doing – you love your craft, your trade, or your profession – and you still want to do it on some basis, then it’s your prerogative. That’s freedom.
But, if you don’t want to do it, and you feel tied to a chair, then that is not freedom.
There is a sacrifice that we all go through in life.
No question about it.
We have to trade time for dollars, which is called active income.
That provides our lifestyle.
As you know, generating that active income is put on our shoulders.
We went to school, we trained, and we studied hard to go into business.
This is so we could make money and have a reasonably secure lifestyle for our families… but at what cost, and for how many years?
The sacrifice period I am talking about should not last longer than five years.
Too many people get into a cycle where they believe what society says about working ceaselessly all of your life.
Always shooting for that retirement goal… someday out there in the future.
But, someday rarely ever comes.
The problem of why freedom is so elusive to reach early in life is because there is no definition of what that looks like – there is no goal.
The goal of reaching freedom is when your passive income – income that comes from passive investments like capital assets, such as real estate or business – becomes equals to or greater than your active income needs.
That means your lifestyle burn rate – what it takes to fund your lifestyle. If you don’t know what that looks like or don’t know what that number is, then you are shooting for a goal out there somewhere that is mystical, and you’ll never know when and if you will hit it.
That is why so many hard-working business owners have to keep working, and have a lot of fear.
They have fear because they have never learned how to orchestrate sustainable and predictable cash flow.
It’s all a gamble.
They throw their money in the market and hope for the best.
They hope the market continues to rise…
But, we know the market does not always continue to rise; sometimes it comes crashing down again.
Not learning how to orchestrate cash flow is a big problem in any market.
Especially when you go into your retirement years, when you no longer have active income to make up for losses, deficits, inflation, or for other issues that come up.
In Freedom Founders, our members learn how to determine what that end goal looks like, what freedom looks like, and then determine where they are today.The “I am here” goal.
They figure out the gap, which is where they are now and where they want to go.
The gap matters.
Then they learn how to reverse engineer that gap, so they can make plans, and reach that goal in 5 to 7 years or less.
Even if you are in debt, you can still reach your goal within 10 years.
But, you need to have a good goal, you need to know where you are starting from, and you need to know how to multiply and leverage all of your current assets and skill sets.
You also need to know how to mitigate your responsibilities.
That is the key to having freedom.
But if you don’t have a blueprint or roadmap, then how will you get there?
