Welcome To The Jungle: The Journey Begins With The First Step

“What we’re really after are the feelings, the emotions, we think money can create.”

At its core, money is about power - it can have the power to create or destroy. You can use it to make others happy or manipulate them into doing what you want, you can use it to express your spirit and creativity, or your anger and hate. More than simply having money, we crave how it makes us feel - empowered, free, secure, etc. However, something you must always keep in mind is that either you master money, or on some level, it will master you.

Mastering money and achieving financial freedom means that you no longer have to worry about going to work every day and you can live life on your terms. Of course, financial freedom is subjective and means something different to everyone. The important thing is to understand what it means to you, and take the necessary steps to achieve it. Remember that those who achieve success are not simply lucky, they are doing something different to everyone else.

Become The Insider: Know The Rules Before You Get In The Game

“To have unconventional success, you can’t be guided by conventional wisdom.”

There are a lot of people out there looking to take a piece of your wealth. Your financial future can easily be destroyed when you believe the myths about money that are commonly marketed to you over the years. The reason many people are controlled by money, rather than being able to control money, is because they are ignorant or unaware of the rules that will enable you to achieve financial freedom. 

The most direct route to financial freedom is via investing. Successful investing means that you will eventually reach a point where your investments generate enough income so that you don’t have to work, unless you want to of course. This sounds easy in theory, but it is often difficult to achieve in real life. Not because achieving financial freedom and/or being a successful investor is a particularly challenging goal, but because nearly all of us believe false facts that are designed to keep us from achieving financial freedom.

What’s The Price Of Your Dreams? Make The Game Winnable

“You can’t manage your health if you can’t measure it. And the same goes for your finances.”

Understanding what you truly need is the first step in turning your dreams into reality. It’s important to align what you wish to achieve with what you believe you can achieve. If you tell yourself that something is your dream, but deep down you feel like you will never be able to achieve it, you will in fact, not achieve it. Instead, if you critically think about what it is you need, what it is you want, and what you truly believe you can achieve, you will come up with goals that are feasible, practical, and will make you satisfied.

Your subconscious is both your biggest enemy and your greatest friend. It’s all about how you choose to use it. Even when the amount of money you need to fulfill your dreams seems impossibly large and daunting, if you build a plan and consistently work towards it, it will seem easier and easier as the days go by. 

Remember, it’s not conditions, but decisions that drive our lives. It doesn’t matter how old you are, how much your income is, what your current situation is in life. All that matters is whether you are willing to put in the effort and change your mindset to work towards your financial goals every day.

Make The Most Important Investment Decision Of Your Life

“You can fulfill your dreams. If you want it badly enough, you’ll find a way.”

Investments can bring you huge rewards - but only if you do it right. It’s one thing to become wealthy, but staying wealthy is much more important. Making the decision to practice appropriate asset allocation is the single most important investment decision you will ever make. In fact, it’s the key to success or failure for every single financially successful person out there.

Do keep in mind that many investments are high risk/high reward. While you can gain much higher returns on them, you also stand to lose a significant proportion of the money you put in. Once you start on this path, there’s no turning back, so you have to put in the effort to play the game properly. If you do, your efforts will pay off - perhaps not in the short-term, but certainly in the long-term. Just be sure that you don’t take any risks that are out of your comfort zone, i.e., don’t invest money you aren’t prepared to lose.
