Financial Freedom vs. Happiness

Spread the love

Most world-class entrepreneurs, renowned personalities, or famous philanthropists, usually agree on the definition of financial freedom, as the ability to live life according to their own terms, in the absence of any material constraint.

Each of us, however, has a stronger desire, namely to be happy, fulfilled.

But what is the relationship between the two?

At first glance, in the light of a degrading mentality that still produces dramas among people, the two concepts are either confused or mutually exclusive.

And yet, if we bend carefully on each concept, we will see that they are closely related and even explain each other.

Happiness, defined as continuous progress, is based on one of our fundamental needs, namely to serve as best as possible to others.

What we consider to be valuable for us, needs to be validated by the others, bringing us a deep sense of accomplishment.

As we discover that we have to offer so much to the others, and we seek to manifest those values in the lives of as many people as possible, we feel the need for an easier access to material resources.

Here comes the financial resources, the money.

We all admit that, money is the ideal means of accessing material resources, with which we can actually translate our ideas, desires, or intentions into the real world.

So money serves as a means, engaging us in this posture of intermediaries, feeding a system designed to create value for us, as well as for the others.

 3 Steps to Financial Freedom


It becomes clear that, just a fair financial education can explain the significance and the way money works, meant to support our development and fulfillment as human beings.

Perception of money is, in fact, the one that divides the world into different categories, and our financial education – or actually, its lack – is the one that continuously feeds this “unjust” division.

Wealth, money, validates us only to the extent that we manage to get them to work for a noble goal, more important than any of us.


Authentic, lasting happiness also rewards us only to the extent that we make a valuable contribution to the lives of others. Otherwise, it reduces to self-sufficiency, ignorance, and indifference.

The link between the two now becomes clear: financial freedom provides us with an ideal means of achieving happiness, but only in the light of a fair financial education that teaches the authentic value of money.

Financial education thus becomes an ethical duty of each of us, which may easily lead us to the state of personal fulfillment.

Embrace this one simple fact and you are well on your way to becoming financially free.

 25 Tips to Achieve Financial Freedom


However, if you are ready to take control of your financial destiny, you may find helpful the following tips:

1. Have a Clear “Why”

As long as you have a clear “why”, there’s always got to be a “how”.

Having a great “why”, helps you strive through the setbacks that you’ll experience inevitably.

2.  Take Full Responsibility

If you really want to take control of your financial destiny, then you must take complete responsibility for every aspect of it.

It’s really useful to make yourself accountable, by asking some friend to check with you in executing your daily tasks.

 3 Keys to Taking Control of Your Destiny


Being responsable means becoming more educated, learning from your mistakes, or surrounding yourself with those that can help you.

3. Believe in Yourself

Most people don’t realize how quickly they discount their own ability.

Years of listening to nay-saying friends, family or bosses, and an overall fear of failure lead to an internal dialogue of doubt.

Don’t let anybody tell you what you can or you can’t do!

When you eliminate “I can’t” from your vocabulary, you see incredible possibilities and options begin to open up for you.


4. Never Get Tired of Planning

Having a plan allows you to choose the greater good between what is planned and what shows up.

With no plan in place, you’ll end up reacting to what is before you, regardless of its value.

Analyze your results constantly, and adjust them through a better plan of action.

You will hit your goals faster.


5. Nothing New under the Sun

Anything you want to do, has already been done by somebody else.

Seek those people and study their success.

Even if the conditions changed more or less, you’ll have a lot to learn from the way they managed all the encountered setbacks.


6. Feel Free to Fail

Failing is learning only if you have taken the opportunity to prepare yourself, and manage to overcome easier the next obstacle.

That’s the only way you will eliminate the distance to your final success.
