Joy is found in the journey, the experiences and the people you meet along the way. Counting joy in possessions and not experiences and positive human interaction will leave your life devoid of all the true richness that is the birthright of all humanity. The joy in life comes from taking the path least traveled. Take it.
If you had the choice to travel the world and have life empowering experiences on every continent and culture as opposed to getting shot in the back on the way home from work because you fit a profile as yet another innocent victim wouldn’t you?
We all die, but the sad truth is that many of us never live. Thirty seven countries and counting; base jumping in Brazil, swimming with a huge pod of wild dolphins in the Indian Ocean off the Coast of Africa, and making memories of a lifetime with tigers in Thailand. What possession would you trade to learn African history and culture in multiple African nations? Or learning to speak multiple languages while obtaining the priceless value of vast cross-cultural understanding?
As children we live according to our wants. As adults we need to learn to prioritize living based upon our needs. The dumbing down process and the constant pressure of fear of what may happen is the strategic plan of the money lenders to keep the masses trapped toiling in paper slavery forever in pursuit of their next want. Knowledge is the only key to freedom. Only once you learn to want to live life according to what you need to be free will it truly become your life.
From an early age most of us are taught to get a good education, a good job to earn a living. But are we not given life in the birthing process? This mindset and yearning for endless wants makes you a slave to paper. Learning how to budget, plan, save and invest are the nexus of enslaving your paper. We need to be ever conscious of the words we say to ourselves for they are powerful enough to entrap your mind or give wings to your dreams.
There is a cap on how many hours you can physically work in a day. Becoming an intelligent investor will allow your money to work more hours then you ever could, freeing you to live the life of your dreams. As opposed to toiling endlessly for bothered weekends and two weeks off a year only to return to your desk to filter through thousands of emails.
I share this knowledge to help free you, because life is too short to spend building someone else’s dream and just long enough to live your own.
