The financial freedom mindset is shifting your mindset now so that your life begins to reflect your best life without having to wait until traditional retirement age or being fully financial independent.
The path to financial independence is not an easy one, it can be simple at times but also mentally draining. It may require changes in behavior, attitudes, and mindset.
That’s where the financial freedom mindset comes in. It enables you to slowly begin to replicate your ideal day without having to wait until “retirement”
At the age of 32 and a half, (I know a weird age to reflect on), it hit me. If I was going to work until the traditional retirement age of 65 then I would have to work for as long as I had currently been alive!
Just the thought of that depressed me. My job was enjoyable, but it’s not what I wanted to devote the majority of my time and energy to for the next 30+ years.
I wasn’t ready to just up and quit my job but something had to change – I needed a mindset shift. So after a lot of thought and reflection I adopted a financial freedom mindset.
The first step towards the financial freedom mindset is deciding what your perfect life looks and feels like. If you have never given any thought to it, now is the time.
Take a minute, right now (well finish reading this paragraph first), and close your eyes. With your eyes closed, envision the ideal day in your best life. What your life looks like once you’ve hit financial and time freedom.
When you close your eyes and imagine your best life and ideal day what do you see? What does your day look like, feel like, smell like?
Okay, now take a minute to actually close your eyes.
It’s okay if when you close your eyes you are not sure what to imagine. But if that’s the case, it’s worth spending some time thinking about it. If you have no idea what your ideal day looks like or what you are working towards, how will you know when you achieve it? Maybe you already have.
Being as specific as possible when describing your ideal day will help you to achieve it. It can also help to keep you motivated. Knowing your “why” or the purpose behind what you are doing can help you stay motivated when the times get tough.
Now that you have taken some time to think about your ideal day and best life, it’s time to put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard. Record it. Write a description of your perfect day from the moment you wake up in the morning to the moment your head hits the pillow at the end of the night.
That’s when I realized how integral travel and exploring was for my mental health.
To be playful and adventurous without the stress we had in our everyday lives.
I love the feeling of being on vacation. Even though at times it can be busy, there is just something about being away on an adventure that just causes my whole body to relax and my mind to be at ease.
What does this for you? Maybe it’s travel. Maybe it’s creating something. Or it could be carving out time to pursue a passion.
Whatever it is, the next time you do it, take some time to note your mindset before during and after. That feeling you get during, that’s what I call the financial freedom mindset. That thing that you are striving to achieve with financial independence.
While on vacation, even if for just a short period of time I got a glimpse of what it would be and feel like to be financially independent. This only happened because I save up in advance for my vacations. I have a vacation fund set aside for all the spending I want to do while away. This way I don’t have to worry about my finances and I can focus on my adventures.
Just like I had a balance between my job that was here and my love of travel, I needed to learn how to live my best life everyday day without having to wait until traditional retirement. To find that feeling in my everyday life and not just while travelling or on vacation.
It took me a long time but slowly I started to shift my mindset. I began to look for opportunities to make my every day resemble my ideal day. I started to look for adventure in my local community. How could I my become a local tourist? Or enjoy a staycation?
But it wasn’t just adventure that was part of my financial freedom mindset. It was that feeling of independence, like I controlled my own time.
How could I achieve that at home when I had a “day job” and regular responsibilities?
In order to assess my situation, I did an audit of my day. First I started by looking at all my responsibilities and how I spent my time. Were all my responsibilities necessary or had I put them on myself? What was I spending my time doing?
When I did have time for myself I was wasting it mindlessly watching television instead of putting my energy towards things I enjoyed. I admit, sometimes I do enjoy watching television and there is nothing wrong with that. The problem was that most of the time I didn’t enjoy it, I was just using television to fill time.
Once I realized I was caught in this trap I looked for ways to get out. Yes, I still had responsibilities in my job and personal life. But I started looking for and realizing that a lot of what I thought were responsibilities were unnecessary busy work.
Besides looking at all my responsibilities, I did a time audit. How was I spending all my time? Was I enjoying how my time was spent or was I so exhausted and checked out from everything that I was just going through the paces?
Realizing that when I said yes to something I said no to everything else was like a lightbulb moment for me. Learning to say no turned out to be a huge step towards achieving a financial freedom mindset.
To free up my time as opposed to just giving it away. The more free-time I had, the more I could do with it what I wanted. Now that I knew what I wanted my ideal day to look like having time to do some of those things now which helped to solidify my financial freedom mindset.
My perfect day did not include having someone else dictate how I spent all my time. Even if I wasn’t financially independent enough to live my ideal day, I could still use the financial freedom mindset to try and make today somewhat resemble it.
What about your time? Have you ever done a time audit to see how your time is being spent? Are you spending it how you want to or how everyone else is?
