10 BONUS FINANCIAL FREEDOM TIPS
Financial literacy lies at the core of financial freedom. Schools don’t teach it and the financial industry has no interest in you having it. You need to go out and acquire this education yourself.
But before you embark on this journey, you need to understand that everything you know about money is wrong. Who invented the phrase that breakfast was the most important meal of the day? It was the breakfast cereal company Kelloggs.
Everything you have been taught about money, finance, and investing has been constructed by the financial services industry. This industry does not want you to be free.
Just like the medical establishment wants to keep you ill and coming back for treatment, the financial system wants you to consume like an imbecile. Through marketing and advertising, it sells you an almost unattainable lifestyle that if you reach, you simply become another one of greed`s whore. It is never enough.
Banks want to keep you ignorant and coming back to buy their products. They say they want to educate you but nothing could be further from the truth. They want to sell you their rancid products with a new shiny wrap. They want to skrew you again and again, and you get to smile while they`re doing it.
The secret to financial freedom is to make money work for you and not work for money. The master needs to become the servant and the servant needs to become the master. To invert this traditional relationship you need to become a master investor. You need to learn how to invest your capital and the capital of others in high-quality assets that generate a stream of long-term reliable cash flows.
You need to tap into your inner rebel to unlock financial freedom. The American essayist Henry David Thoreau said most men lead lives of quiet desperation and die with their song still inside them. That is, they die without having listened to their internal music, caught in the web of the establishment. You need to transform your relationship with money and liberate that sweet melody that lies within.
