Financial Freedom is a wonderful thing. However, we can’t tell you what it’s like; you have to experience it for yourself to truly understand. Something we can give you is a number of ideas for you to try once you’ve reached financial independence. So whether you’re a financially free individual looking to enjoy yourself, or a hard-worker looking for a vision of the future, this article will help you. But be warned, this isn’t your typical bucket list…
Go Ahead and Buy Your Toys
We Know You Want to Every financial literacy book you’ve ever read probably says something like, “Don’t spend your money on things you don’t need.” We’re not going to insult you and tell you that you shouldn’t buy nice things. In fact, we know you will. We know you’ll want to. Whether it’s a Ferrari or a pool table for your man cave, buy yourself a treat. Just be sure that your income snowball is generating 2-3x more than what that fun new toy costs, or that you are already financially free and can buy it outright. That’s our philosophy for indulging a little but in the right way.
Seek Out New Experiences
Once you’ve spent money on toys, you’ll realize it’s not always what you think it’ll be. You may get a temporary buzz, but that often fades as quickly as it comes. What you want is a buzz that’ll stay with you forever. The way to get this is through experiences that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. We suggest combining new experiences with educational ones, like what we do at our Ali’i Kālā Wealth Summits where you learn how to accelerate your snowball while making unforgettable memories.
Meet New People
Financial freedom means social freedom. There are amazing people all over the world in different walks of life. Use your freedom to connect with people that not only bring you joy and happiness but inspire you in your goals for financial freedom and living your dream life. Many of our members have met at Galas and Events and now encourage each other to new heights.
See a Better You in the Mirror
Too many people today are in poor health. With bills to pay, children to look after and bosses to please, a lot of people think, “I’ll do it tomorrow” when it comes to eating healthy, exercising, or even something like taking a walk outside to enjoy the nice weather. With financial freedom, you have the luxury of time and money. Learn to love healthy living. Find ways to stay active that don’t just stimulate your body but also your mind. Maybe you’ll discover a talent you never realized you had.
Spend Quality Time with Loved Ones
In today’s world, we sometimes forget how important it is to make time to connect with family. It’s not the good ol’ days anymore, when family and friends would spend their evenings together around the dinner table or in the den without electronics diverting their attention to selfish pursuits. Today, it takes a concerted effort to make this happen. This is a bucket list item we suggest you practice frequently: spend time with your loved ones.
Invest in Others, Invest in the Future
People think of the individually wealthy as evil capitalists. We know it’s not true. Many of our clients give their time and resources to helping better the world. Some do voluntary work for disadvantaged people. Some commit their resources to saving the environment. There are countless causes and there will be things that are dear to you. Use your passion to support those causes however you can. Not only will you feel better, but you’ll leave a legacy far greater than your achievements.
