Low risk high return investments can be made. All you have to do is learn how to do it. Remember, when it comes to investing, knowledge always eliminates risk. Learning is not difficult at all. It is no different from learning to ride a bike. You may fall at the beginning, but after a while learning not to fall, investing becomes as natural as walking.
People who haven’t achieved their financial freedom are more likely to avoid financial risk. It is always better to learn to manage risk rather than avoid risk.
Risk takers change the world. You can see very few people getting rich without risk. Many choose to depend on the state to avoid the risks of life. At the beginning of the Information Age, the phenomenon of benevolent state has come to an end. We know that. The Benevolent state was costing dearly. Unfortunately, millions of people around the world will be in a very difficult financial situation as they depend on “their rights” and lifetime bonuses. The greatest requirement of the Information Age is that everyone is self-sufficient.
The idea of “work hard and find yourself a solid, secure job” is from the Industrial Age. We no longer live in that age. Times are changing. However, people insist on not changing their minds as rapidly. They still think they deserve something. They believe investment is not their business. They expect the state, companies, unions or their families to take care of them on their retirement days. I wish they were right.
If you have already achieved your financial freedom, I will just say “Congratulations!”. Please help others to follow your path. If they need guidance, do not hesitate to help. Guide, but let them find their own way. Because there are many ways to financial freedom.
Whatever you decide, please keep this in mind: Financial freedom may be free, but it is not cheap. Freedom has a price, it’s worth it if you ask me. The trick is that financial freedom requires neither money nor good education. It doesn’t have to be risky either. The cost of financial freedom is measured by dreams, will, and the ability to overcome obstacles along the way. So are you ready to pay this price?
Assurance or Freedom?
• Go to school, get good grades, then find a solid, secure job.
• Go to school, get good grades, then start your own business.
If all people in the world were given these two options, the results could have been halved. However, people have become so used to the system that they do not know what they want. Even if they know, they don’t have the motivation to bring it to life. After all, many unknowingly find themselves applying the first option.
The reason millions of people seek assurance is actually what they’ve been taught at home and at school.
Most of us are instilled with employment security, not financial security, at an early age. In addition, since we are taught little about money, both at home and at school, what could be more natural than clinging to the idea of employment security?
If you look at people who are poor and have not achieved their financial freedom, you will see that they have opted for employment security. If you turn your head and look in the opposite direction, the rich and the people who have fully secured their financial freedom, you will see that they act with freedom.
Falling into the Debt Trap
The reason why most of the population chooses the first option and works without financial freedom is because of what they learned in school. They get into debt shortly after they finish school. This is such a deep debt that they cling to employment security even more tightly in order to pay their bills.
There are many young people who graduated from university with their diplomas and education loan debt. When they see that the amount of debt is between $ 50,000 and $ 150,000, they get depressed. If the parents covered the tuition expenses, then the parents may have to pay a loan.
An article I read recently wrote that most Americans had credit cards when they were students and would be in debt for the rest of their lives. This is because they took part in a scenario that became famous in the Industrial Age. Here is the scenario:
The boy goes to school, graduates, gets a job, and soon has money to spend. Now he can rent an apartment, buy a TV, new furniture, new clothes and of course a car. One day, this hero meets someone special, they fall in love with each other, and after a while they get married. Life goes easier with a double income. By putting a few dollars aside, they plan to own their own homes as all young people dream of. One day, they find that house, withdraw the money they have saved in their savings accounts, deposit the house down payment, and go under mortgage debt. Well, the new house needs new items, and they enter the furniture store that advertises in talismanic words, saying “Furniture in installments with no down payment”.
Everything is great, they throw a party to show off their new home, new cars, new stuff and new toys. After that, they will live in debt until the end of their lives. Then their first child is born.
Every morning, this ordinary, well-educated, hard-working couple leaves their children at kindergarten, making their way to the company where they work intensely. Now, employment security has become even more important for them.
Do you still insist on choosing the first option?
