How to achieve Financial Freedom?
I think the key to achieve financial freedom is to have a long-term plan. Firstly you have to assess what your goals are and where you currently stand, in order to make decisions on how you can improve. Debt is a huge burden and clearing it can lift a huge weight off your shoulders.
Unfortunately financial freedom is something that runs against the grain of todays society, that wants you to spend more and be a consumer. We are bombarded with advertising every single day telling us we need ‘things’ to make us happy.
In reality ‘things’ only make us happy for a small amount of time, and really happiness comes from the simple things. Like spending time with family, sharing experiences with the people we love, living in the moment, good music, a good book, a hot drink with friends or the laughter of children.
