Several years back I was almost killed by a horrible accident. I am embarrassed to admit that, like most people, I learned to appreciate life only when I saw death knocking at my door.
This near encounter with death made me realize that I wasn’t happy, and that I was wasting my life working on a boring and unsatisfactory job just because I thought it was the only way in which I could survive. But after my accident, I wasn’t willing to settle for surviving anymore, now I was going to live.
I promised myself I was going to seek the financial freedom I needed to live my life in my own terms. I decided that when the time comes, in which I meet with death again, I will be proud to say I lived a happy fulfilling life, and that I took care of my most precious asset: My time!
To my surprise achieving financial freedom is not as hard as I thought it would be. It’s an easy replicable process, and anyone can achieve it with some minor changes in their mindsets, and in their lifestyles.
In this article I want to share one of the secrets that I learned that helped me achieve financial freedom. I hope this information can help you get one step closer to your goals, and help you live a happy life.
The first thing you need to understand is…
Some products can make your life easier, but more stuff doesn’t make your life easier. You should buy the products that you need, and not buy things on an impulse. If you are one of those guys that have your house filled with stuff you haven’t used in years it will be very hard for you to achieve financial freedom.
To achieve financial freedom you need to spend less money than the one you make. This doesn’t mean you need to become a modern-day Scrooge. It just means you should stop wasting your money on stuff you don’t need.
If you really need to spend your money…
Concentrate on the need and not on the product. And if your need is real try to buy a used product.
When you buy stuff you get exactly what you pay for, unless you buy used things, in which case, you get more value for your money.
Many people try to keep up with the trends and they purchase the latest products that the market has to offer. When the trends change they sell their stuff for peanuts.
Other people have unhealthy spending habits and they buy stuff they don’t need, and can’t afford. In a short period of time they are forced to sell it, at bargain prices, just to be able to pay their debts. You can take advantage of this situation and save a lot of money.
Products suffer a natural depreciation when they leave the store, by buying used stuff you are able to obtain products that are close to their real market value. Other people pay the depreciation you just enjoy the product, and save a lot of money.
If you learn to spend wisely you will achieve financial freedom very fast. This little shift in your lifestyle will transform your life almost overnight.
