You cannot earn your way to freedom. You need to invest and make your money work for you.

This is the simple truth that the rich know, and that the poor ignore.

Investing is the way you get free.

I used to be one of those poor people that didn’t really know what the whole investing game was. I should of; I was highly educated and I had the ability to learn and ask questions.

However, it seemed like a scary mystery world, where those in the know got rich and the rest of the poor hopefuls got poorer.

Then I got smart, and about a year ago, with a lot of support and guidance from my lovely wife, we became investors.

Read on to learn our basic rules and see the smart and safe way to begin your mission to success.

How to Achieve Financial Freedom Through Investing

To be truly successful: to be free to do what you want, to live where you want, go where you want and have what you want, you need to start investing to become financially free.

In order to be financially free, in charge of your life and your time, you need to be the boss of your own profitable business or you need to set up passive revenue streams that will bring in enough money to live on.

Entrepreneur vs Investor

In order to be your own boss you need to work incredibly hard and have a great idea.

In the beginning, most of us probably don’t have that great idea all figured out yet and most of us probably aren’t in the position to give up our regular paying jobs. I know I’m not ready to jump all in and risk everything.

Even for those who do have that great idea brewing away, it’s important to remember:

According to Bloomberg, 8 out of 10 entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months. A whopping 80% crash and burn.

So, while it’s a great way to financial freedom, starting your own business is perhaps not the best place to start. From my own perspective, it’s something I aspire to do, but it’s something I need to prepare a lot more for.

On the other hand, developing a passive income stream through investing is a much easier proposition. By investing your disposable income, you have the potential to free yourself and build a base that will help you to develop your own business in the future.

So, to begin with, my fiancée and I decided to become financially free and that our best course of action would be to start with investing.

How to Respond to Failure So You Can Keep Chasing Success

Or how I smiled while losing $10,000.

How can you lose money and still feel like a winner?

It’s strange I know, but when you are really in control of your feelings and you have the right plans and motivations, you don’t react so drastically to things.

Don’t get me wrong, there are moments of fear, doubt, anger and pain. For us $10,000 is a huge amount of money. But no amount of money is worth giving up my connection with my partner. A small slip is not worth giving up a whole bright future. If you let loses get you down, they only take away from your future wins.

The way to respond is to take a breath, take stock of what’s important, remind yourself of your long term goals and prepare to fight to get it back and get back on track for the future you want.

I am a Success: Because I learned to act like a millionaire.

I decided that 2018 was going to be my year to make changes and get the life I really want. Ultimately, I decided I wanted one thing: I want financial freedom!

I want to be free to do what I want, to live where I want, go where I want and have what I want.

In order to have this dream, this lifestyle, and live well to the day I die, I need to make millions.

Why I don’t make Millions?

I, like so many others in the world, had been brought up with the message: Get a good job, work hard and you will be able to enjoy a modest to good life.

This, I have to admit sounded like good advice. My fiancée and I had good jobs and we were living well and saving a reasonable amount of money.

But when we started to think about how we wanted to live, and the life we wanted for our future children, and our future expenses and how we wanted to live in retirement, we came to the realization that we would need to work a very long time and save a whole lot of money. And even then, we couldn’t live the way we wanted.

I knew there was a better way. I knew there were people living much easier. I wanted more than the normal plan would give. I wanted financial freedom.

So I needed some new messages and some new lessons.

How to Plan for Success

If you want success in anything: money, business, relationships, health and/or happiness, you need a plan. Here’s how to plan for real success!

True success is not possible without a plan!

In order to achieve success you need to know what success is to you. You need to know who you are, what you want, what you are capable of, what you are passionate about and how you are going to get there.

All of these insights I have learned from my own life. However, most recently I have discovered a host of great mentors in the field of behavior psychology and motivational speaking. Inspired by these people and my own life experiences I have formulated my own path to success. I want to share this and hopefully you can follow along and develop your own plan for success.

Simply, in order to maintain my focus and achieve what I see as success, I go through the following plan.

  1. Acknowledge Problems
  2. Envision Success
  3. Develop Motivation
  4. Implement Discipline
  5. Celebrate Regularly

These are my catchphrases for what is essentially a universal plan for success.

This plan is no different to the plans of all the other experts.

It makes sense, it works and it can make life better for me, you and the entire human race.

I absolutely believe this, and this is why I want to share this program and my story with you today.
