In most cases, our capability of making progress towards what we are passionate about has always been limited by a chase for money. Therefore, for you to focus fully on your passion, one of the things you must do is to achieve financial independence. Keep reading to find out more about why and how it is important for your stairway to success.
Job Security is Nothing More Than an illusion
It is the commercial vulnerability that usually motivates entrepreneurs and the fear of losing a job often drives people towards working harder to impress their boss. People tend to work for long hours and give up on the things they consider most important simply because they are working for money. This is not anything you will have to worry about if you become financially independent.
Whether you are an entrepreneur, working for someone, or self-employed, you are always in some kind of business for yourself. The only difference is who your customer is. If you are a traditional employee, your boss is your customer because he or she is the one who is paying for your services. So, you will have to impress them with your attitude and skills on a daily basis to keep your job.
If you are a great employee, your boss will reward you, you will be promoted, co-workers will love you, and clients will appreciate you too. However, all of these things will be happening simply because you are still valuable and respected.
It Helps You Make More Money
No matter how qualified you are, you can always lose your job instantly if you mess up. This is why you need to strive to become financially independent so that you don’t rely on your boss to survive.
As I mentioned earlier, the key to respect and being valued is a positive attitude and significant skills.
With business, you can start many other businesses, generate more income, and start to control prices. This is what we call financial independence.
At this stage, you will have learnt how to depend purely on what you have and earn, rather than worrying about the money you could lose. This will create stability in your personal and business life.
It Puts You in a Better Position to Change Lives
When you are financially free, you are always in a better position to help other people and to solve some very complex problems. Making a difference in people’s lives is one thing that will always give you ultimate satisfaction.
In most cases, the help many people need is related to money. According to recent studies, only 3 in 10 Americans are financially healthy. So, how can you help other people when you are also struggling to make ends meet?
When you have a lot of money, you can channel a portion of it to a greater cause. For example, you can decide to help orphans, the homeless, the elderly, and so on if you have enough money to do so.
It Enables You to Create Your Most Meaningful Work
Financial independence is very important since it gives you the ability to choose and structure your goals. When you find the right thing that you want to do, something that feels right, being financially independent helps you make that dream come true.
Instead of working just for money, you will be in a position to choose the kind of work which uniquely suits you. With the right work, you will even be more productive besides being happy and motivated because you love your job.
While you should strive to become financially free, you should be sure not to opt out of a productive, meaningful life. Striving to reach economic success should not make you give up on important relationships and your passions. Building strong relationships with others makes you feel great emotionally and mentally.
My advice to you is to keep doing what you love and are passionate about because this increases your happiness and commitment to any tasks that you are set to do by yourself.
