Freedom Isn’t Just Financial, And True Wealth Is More Than Just Money
The only worthwhile reason to build wealth is for a happy and fulfilling life. However, the illusion of building wealth is the “more, better, different” lifestyle you can afford. The sooner you overcome the illusion so you can live the reality the sooner you will experience true wealth and personal freedom.
True wealth is about experiences – not stuff. For example, if playing guitar and raising your children is important to you, and attaining financial freedom allows you to spend more time doing those things then you are heading toward fulfillment and true wealth. If financial freedom allows you to exercise more frequently and eat better then you are on track to true wealth because your desires and the financial means to attain them are congruent.
However, most people confuse wealth and happiness. They falsely believe “more-better-different” stuff will make them happier. The truth is once your income rises above abject poverty research study after research study has proven little or no relationship between having more money and experiencing greater happiness. You only need one bed to lay in, one chair to sit in, and neither of those cost a lot of money. Wealth and happiness simply aren’t related once you rise above poverty level. So why waste your time pursuing the illusion?
