Freedom Leads To Happiness
People say: money does not make you happy! And somehow that’s true. True happiness does not come from wealth but a sense of freedom. You can have the most beautiful house in the area, and you can have several holiday homes, you can have a nice expensive car if you can’t enjoy it, because let’s say you work from dawn to dusk. The truth is, to be happy, you don’t necessarily have to be rich. I know that money is playing an essential part in our lives. Better to have it than not to have it at all. But true happiness could actually be measured by how you feel when you wake up. What thoughts do you have in your mind when you open your eyes in the morning?
What if you tried once that when you open your eyes in the morning, you immediately think of something positive.
If we start the morning with positive thoughts, we automatically charge ourselves up emotionally. The longer we are able to resonate in that high level of emotion, the longer we can sustain happiness. However, during the day, we experience a lot of things that influencing our thoughts. If we are not able to keep our thoughts under control, our happiness can quickly turn into sadness and frustration for the evening, because, most of our decisions are emotional.
After studying and reading books, I learned that the only way to maintain this positive state of my mind is by continually feeding my thoughts with positive affirmations. It is also true; most people already have negative thoughts early in the morning because they do not like the lifestyle they live. Many people don’t like their job, for instance. Most people don’t like obligations. They are anxious to go to work they have a pit in their stomach because they would prefer to do something else instead.
The truth is that time and financial freedom are what almost every people desire. Freedom leads to happiness!
Our broken education system is about to teach us how to become an excellent employee. In school, we learn how to work for money, but we don’t have a subject about how to respect money and learn how to make money to work for us. Not knowing enough about money is a result of zero credit on most families bank account by the end of the week.
Most of us get a job and become an employee after completing our studies. During the years in school, we learned how to trade our time for money which creates nothing more than a basic life. We taught not to be a wolf, but to be a sheep for a lifetime! Most people are influenced by their environment, not to think outside the box. Instead of being creative, most people think it’s more secure to take a job. If you have a job, you are financially secured, your employer will also pay your contributions, and you are eligible for a state pension. It is is a misconception! First of all, there is no job security anymore. We are no longer in the era when someone works 20-30 years at the same company.
Many people are working every day from morning to evening, 40 plus hours a week to live a basic life. The fact is that you don’t need to have too much creativity to live in mediocrity. I agree with that, and it is not easy to think differently and start to work for yourself. It requires you to change your employee mindset to an entrepreneur mindset. While the employee mindset is about getting paid for the time, I spend at work and the work I do, the entrepreneurial mindset is about advertising the goods first and then selling them. And if I paid all my expenses then maybe I will get paid.
But there are many advantages to work for yourself.
If your business is flying, and you achieved time and financial freedom, your life start to change direction. You don’t work for money anymore; you make money work for you! The time you invested in before to make someone else wealthy, you can use it wisely for your financial and personal development and make your business growing further. You write the scenario of your life. You plan your future, and you make all the decision, and you are in control of your life. You begin to feel happy because freedom leads to happiness.
People think that gaining financial freedom means they don’t have to work anymore and that a lot of money goes hand in hand with happiness. It is not true! If you have more money, you can have more freedom to spend doing what you love to do. That’s all.
Ones you choose to live a business or entrepreneur lifestyle, you should be committed to learning every day for a lifetime. You might also fail a few times. Failure is essential in business, but in time every failure turns into your favour.
So my conclusion is if you are pursuing happiness, you might find a way to find your freedom first.
It would be best if you changed your mindset first in order to get a chance to gain financial freedom. First, you need to replace your low financial thermostat to a higher one. Secondly, you need to come out of your comfort zone. Most people have difficulties for a few weeks to leave their comfort zone.
What is your goal? How would you like to gain time and financial freedom?
