How To Achieve Financial Freedom: Habits And Mindsets That Drive Success

Virtually everyone wants to experience financial freedom, and a lot of people feel disgruntled, or at least less than happy, about their current financial situation.

It’s easy to dream about a life where the alarm clock is not your master, where the rhythm of your day is not dictated by a job you need but may not love.

We long for a world where our time is purely our own, a life where we set the agenda, and our day is filled with activities we truly enjoy.

This is the essence of financial freedom.

What Is Financial Freedom (Really)?

Financial freedom isn't about extravagant displays of wealth like mansions or luxury cars - it's about living life on your own terms, in control of your financial destiny.

It's about eliminating the pervasive stress of living month to month and having the freedom to pursue what you really love and experience life to its fullest.

Understanding How to Achieve Financial Freedom

The Concept of Financial Freedom

Financial freedom is a state where we can live the life we would love to live without having to work for money. This is achieved by amassing assets that generate the income that gives us the lifestyle we would love - not just meeting our expenses. And we do this from a base amount that generates the desired income year after year.

Achieving financial freedom means we can then work because we love it or choose not to.

In an ever-evolving world driven by digital innovations and the rise of the gig economy, this concept of financial freedom has become increasingly significant.

As the traditional paths of income and employment shift, the ability to create a reliable, independent source of ongoing income has become an essential aspect of modern life.

Core Principles on How to Achieve Financial Freedom

The journey towards financial freedom is something everyone can do.

And it all begins with your mindset. You need to view money not as a destination but as a means to an end, a tool that helps you achieve your goals and realise your dreams.

Achieving financial freedom is more about creating sustainable, practical habits and mindset shifts than get-rich-quick schemes.

Years ago, a teacher who greatly impacted me said, “It doesn’t matter how much money you are making when you start. It does matter what you do with it.” He and others I studied gave me a step-by-step process that transformed my financial situation.

Habits to Help You Achieve Financial Freedom

Money Mindset

A money mindset is a prevailing attitude that you have about your finances and how you make, spend, and save money. It's a unique set of beliefs and behaviours that shape your financial habits and outcomes.

Your money mindset is greatly influenced by your experiences and what you’ve learned about money growing up. For instance, if you grew up in a household where money was always tight, you might develop a scarcity mindset where you believe that there is never enough money.

I remember once when my father remarked that money didn’t grow on trees. Not realising he had a lot of things to think about regarding money, I took it literally and believed that money was scarce - a belief that I took on well into adulthood before realising that my beliefs were causing my financial problems and that they weren’t true.

On the other hand, if you were taught that all the money you need and want is available and is a tool to achieve your dreams and live a fulfilling life, you might develop an abundance mindset where you see endless possibilities for generating wealth.

Your mindset greatly impacts your financial decisions and, ultimately, your financial reality.

People with a positive money mindset tend to feel confident about money, make informed financial decisions, and are more likely to achieve financial freedom. In contrast, those with a negative money mindset may feel stressed about money, struggle to make ends meet, and find it difficult to achieve their financial goals.

Understanding your money mindset is the first step towards making meaningful changes in your financial life.

This is especially important because many of the debilitating beliefs around money are hidden in our subconscious. They are preventing us from achieving our dreams, and we may not even realise that they are there. By recognising and challenging your beliefs about money, you can shift your mindset and make decisions that lead you towards financial freedom.

Adopting a Mindset of Expansion

A mindset of expansion, the belief that your abilities can be developed, is a key to financial freedom. This mindset will help you remain firmly on your pathway to financial freedom, despite external circumstances when others get caught up in worry and limitation.

Each challenge turns into an opportunity to grow, each apparent setback a lesson learned that propels you forward.

The beauty of this is that anyone can achieve financial freedom by consistently applying key practical steps that lead us there steadily and overall exponentially.

It doesn’t need to be hard - don’t get me wrong, there will always be challenges, but your mindset will help you navigate these. With a mindset of expansion, we can move with much greater ease through the challenges.

Overcoming Financial Fear

Fear often lurks in the background of financial decisions. The fears of loss, making a mistake, and financial instability can lead to paralysing inaction or hasty decisions.

Overcoming these fears is crucial on the road to financial freedom.

It begins by acknowledging your fears and understanding they are based on limiting thoughts that can be dispelled.  

Yes, we have to learn as we go and be wise with financial decisions, but fears (false evidence appearing real) are just based in our thoughts and don’t need to stop us.

In other words, having an aligned mind is paramount when taking the necessary actions.

Saving and Investing Wisely

Savings act as a stabiliser, keeping you positive,  focused and moving forward no matter what is happening, instead of constantly worrying about financial upheavals - while intelligent investing is your ticket to growing your wealth to achieve financial freedom.

By prioritising consistent savings and letting your savings accumulate, you create a strong foundation that will keep you centred amidst life's financial uncertainties.

Be dedicated to learning about wise ways to grow your money and finding professionals that have demonstrated winning ways to consistently and sustainably grow wealth that you can learn and seek advice from.
