Keep Striving For Financial Independence and Freedom

Financial Independence Is A Achievable Goal

Dare to achieve financial independence. Cross the threshold to personal freedom. Make the commitment for your financial success. Remember, the secret to achieving financial independence and real wealth is to establish the mindset of wealth.

In order to earn more money, improve your marketable skills in an area of demand. Focus on personal development to increase your value in the market by becoming better at what you do or by doing something that is more in demand. Look for opportunities to do what you love most in a way that provides service to others on a massive scale.

Pay yourself part of everything you earn. Saving leads to wealth.

Learn to invest your money wisely. It’s true that a fool and his money are soon parted but a wise person and his money will enjoy constantly increasing levels of abundance. Get expert help in your investments, but make your own decisions.

Focus on achieving the levels of wealth in their order of importance. First comes protection, followed by independence. If your investment income covers your essential needs without having to work, you are already financially independent. If not, make this your first major objective after you have a protection fund in place. And once you have achieved financial independence, you opened the door to ultimate freedom. Whatever you want can be yours.

Achieving more wealth will empower you to expand your service to others and, in the process, become more than you get.

Keep money in perspective. It is only a means to an end and not an end in itself. Do not let money control your life. Be the master of your money, not its servant.

Be grateful for what you have, always count your blessings even when you do not think you have any. Gratitude will open the doors to abundance for you.

Follow these exercises to achieve your goal of financial independence.

  • Accept the dare: Resolve to become financially independent.
  • Determine how much income-producing wealth you need to accumulate in order to live in reasonable comfort without having to work the rest of your life.
  • Implement a strategy for wealth-building:
  • Increase your earning power. Determine how you can increase your value in the marketplace and initiate a step-by-step program to do so.
  • Reduce or otherwise control expenses.
  • Pay yourself first. Save part of everything you earn.
  • Establish a Financial Protection Fund: Build a reserve of funds sufficient to live on for one or two years.
  • Start an investment program. Study and practice to become an intelligent investor. Capitalize on the benefits of compounding earnings and “value investing.”
  • List five ways you can contribute to a better world when you become financially independent.

Last but not least, share what you have. Nothing builds character more than helping others. Whatever you do to help others will be returned to you tenfold and more. Achieving financial independence can easily be more than just a dream, you have everything you need to reach your goals right now.

  • Move forward and achieve the level of wealth you desire.
  • You can do it. Try it.
  • I dare you!

I have always had an enthusiasm for homesteading and for living off the grid even though I live in a combination of country and urban setting. Living in Central Florida north of the big cities we have the best of both worlds, country and the conveniences that a person would have living in a large urban city. I personally have had a concern about our weakening economy and how it effects each and every-one of us. The second thing that I have a concern about is how most of the world view’s our country and what may happen one day here in the United States. My Life Experiences I was raised by parents that grew up during the great depression, they passed onto me what life was like and how people had to live during this time period. My family were farmers, gardeners, and homesteaders, they were raised this way and they passed onto me these qualities. I also have family members that live totally off the grid. They live in the North Woods of Minnesota which is a great location for living off the grid. The Southern Homesteader is a passion of mine, I love passing on and sharing information about cooking, news, being self-sufficient, living off the grid, canning, food storage, budgeting, and much more. Since this blog is a passion of mine I am constantly adding and tweaking this site to be a better resource for you. More About Me I grew up in Northern Illinois farm fields. After spending most of my life in large corporate business I decided to relocate to a small town on the nature coast of Central Florida. This is where I met my wife and between us we have 4 wonderful daughters. We have a small homestead where we raise our chicken and live freely. We also have a bug-out place in the mountains of North Carolina that we call our retreat. We spend time there getting things prepared for all our family members when SHTF. I am blessed with a wonderful family and the knowledge that God has given me so I can pass this along to you the readers. I will never tell what you what to do or what to purchase, I just am offering my opinion. I want to take this time to thank each and every one of you. Always feel free to contact me and drop me a note. I will do my best to respond to your emails in a timely manner. Thank you again, Tom Johnson
