The holidays have come and gone. It is likely you attempted to include family time and other activities you enjoy into any free time you had in your calendar. After putting in such long hours working and getting so few days off, it can be frustrating to only have a small amount of leisure time. On top of that, you are trading all that time for dollars and the government will then collect its share first. But it doesn’t have to be this way! If there was a way to have more money and more free time to focus on what’s important to you, how would that change your life?
“The first step in solving a problem is to recognize that it does exist.” – Zig Ziglar
On average, you spend one third of your time at work and approximately one third of your life is spent sleeping. This leaves one third of your life to divide between completing necessary tasks, spending time with your loved ones, and doing things you enjoy. The problem is, attempting to divide limited time and finances between your loved ones and your own needs and wants can leave you feeling stuck. There is a path to freedom that allows you to have more free time and more dollars to build the life that you want.
The first step towards achieving freedom is visualizing what freedom looks like for you; after all, how can you get somewhere if you do not know where you are going?
Would you spend a full month with your family for the holidays because you have the time available?
Would you travel far away each year, just because you can?
Would you coach a sports team for your child now that you have free time?
With more time and money, what kind of life would you choose?
It can be challenging to envision what your life would look like if you had genuine control over your finances and your schedule and were no longer constrained by either.
