What’s going on my peeps? I want to talk a bit about my favorite topic financial freedom. I want to discuss this because its way more enjoyable than talking about debt. Why I want financial freedom is very simple, because we as humans were truly meant to be free. Once you feel the tug of this FI desire, you will understand. If it hasn’t hit you yet, be ready cause it will one day.
Do you fully grasp that this system is set up to trap us from a very young age. From school years and quickly transition to work yeara till age 67 plus.
My mom had the same desire to be free as she retired at age 39 and lived how she wanted for the next 10 years or so of her life. She started a few businesses and just hustled while enjoying life. Eventually she went back to work but only because she wanted to pass the time I believe after becoming an empty nester.
Even the super rich are trapped in this unfavorable cycle of being beholden to others. The rich CEO reports to the board, Warren Buffet has shareholders and his own obsessiveness of growing his business, politicians are controlled by other more powerful people or political parties who pull the strings, the movie star is at the mercy of recording studio heads, the doctor is bound to his patients or to the director of doctors. I can keep going if you would like, but you get the gist of it.
