Achieving Financial Freedom
To understand ''financial freedom'' one must come out of the traditional concepts regarding income and expenses.
We have been taught that timely work generates money. ''Financial freedom'' opposes this concept of time-for-money swap and lets the money work for the individual instead. However, in spite of this advantage many professionals find it difficult to work without a fixed routine.
Thus, to achieve financial freedom one needs to change their old mindsets and develop a new attitude towards earning money. One must realize that money is simply the means to achieve ends.
One must also remember that a person cannot be judged by the money he possesses. Unless these misconceptions are cleared the entire purpose of financial freedom is defeated since satisfaction is the keyword to financial freedom.
Similarly, one must also get rid of the negative attitude towards earning money. While excess demand for wealth hampers one's healthy relationship with finances, a healthy perception of money is necessary to maintain an over-all balance. Remember that one earns money to achieve ends and therefore, it is healthy and normal to earn money as long as one feels the ethical need to do so.
In the end, one may say that financial freedom is the state of mind which works towards development through a process of self liberation.
