Financial Freedom: Four Groups Of People You Must Not Emulate In Your Quest To Be Financially Free

Financial Freedom: Four Groups Of People You Must Not Emulate In Your Quest To Be Financially Free

One of the key principles of success is the principle of emulation. This principle says, you will be successful in the proportion to which you find out what other successful people are doing, and then do the same things yourself over and over again. As a wealth seeker, this principle can dramatically increase your probability of achieving financial success. Unfortunately, there is a limit to which you should emulate some groups of “financially successful” people. Listen, in your quest to live a financially free life, there are four groups of people you must not emulate or model their spending habits and lifestyle. Many of these people came into wealth, not as a result of financial intelligence or wit, but have wealth thrust on them through luck. As a result, they are careless in their spending. They live a lavish lifestyle and spend as if there is no tomorrow.  1. The Pseudo-affluent: these are mostly professionals and corporate executives, who earn a high income, but spend the majority of what they make on lavish lifestyles.  They live big and large: they drive the latest high-end luxury cars; wear expensive designer suits and clothes fly first class and dine at the best restaurants.  They have the appearance of wealth; unfortunately, they do not have the true substance of wealth- assets. As a result, they are usually just one to two paychecks away from being broke. 2. Wealth Inheritors  Many wealth inheritors are prodigal sons and daughters who are unable to preserve, let alone grow whatever wealth they inherited.  These are people who have not had to worry about money for much...

Online Course: Turn your knowledge into a money-making machine.

One of the major downsides to most of the teachings being peddled by most supposedly financial gurus and experts is the tendency to focus on how to save and invest money without first teaching people how to get the money they would save and invest. This article is to open your eyes to one avenue through which anyone and everyone can generate income. The main reason I tend to favor this path to wealth building is that we all have the basic raw material that is needed to make this a reality: knowledge.

Financial Freedom: The One Thing You Must Do To Achieve It.

Financial Freedom: The One Thing You Must Do To Achieve It.

Financial freedom or wealth building is really not about earning a huge salary. It has very little to do with the position you occupy in your organization…….whether you are a janitor, driver, or CEO.  To be honest with you, it has nothing to do with what stuff you possess or how large you live. Living in an upscale area of the city, wearing designer clothes, and driving exotic cars are not what make for financial freedom or wealth building. How Do I Achieve Financial Freedom? When most people think of creating wealth, they think of earning more income by working more hours or changing jobs. As awesome and commendable as this step might be, it is good to know that salary is not wealth. And earning a huge salary might not necessarily culminate in wealth accumulation or financial freedom. The reason is that as an employee, your salary or take-home pay is classified as earned income or active income. Unfortunately, this class of income lacks the tool of leverage, which is a vital key in the process of wealth building.  This lack of leverage is a major drawdown to every attempt at building wealth with earned income. This is because your ability to generate income is tied to your personal time and effort. This means if you want more money, you have to put in more hours of labor. Unfortunately, there is only so much you can do in 24 hours. And in a case where you couldn’t show up for work as a result of sickness, accident or what have you, you don’t earn. The good news is...
How To Earn Huge Income

How To Earn Huge Income

Your ability to earn an income is the first rung in the ladder of wealth building. The more income you generate, the more investable funds you tend to have for wealth building. When it comes to earning or generating income, we all know that the fundamental determinant of what you earn is the value you create for your clients or company. It is your contribution to your clients or the company you work for in terms of value that determines your compensation. The Law of Income simply says you will be paid in direct proportion to the value you deliver according to the marketplace Great principle….. You Need To Understand The Other Side Of The Equation Unfortunately, this is just one part of the equation. A half-truth can be very dangerous. This is the reason many people are frustrated today. They work so hard in their job to create great value for their clients or the company they work for, yet they seem not to be making headway financially. They become exasperated when they compare what they are earning with people who could not be said to be creating any meaningful value, yet earn huge income. For example, between a standup comedian and a university professor who creates greater value in people’s lives? The answer is obvious. The comedian can only make people laugh and feel good for a couple of minutes. The impact of his jokes is not a lasting or an enduring one. The question then is, who should earn more? Though you might want to argue that value is relative and it is as perceived by...
