One of the things I keep being reminded of is the purpose of wealth creation.
People build wealth for a variety of reasons.
Others work hard to acquire things, other to acquire and show off, others to build something for when they retire, others it is to travel the world, and others to look after their families and kinds.
Whatever the reasons, one of the critical reasons for wealth creation as Morgan Housel says in his book The Psychology of Money, is:
“To wake up in every morning and say, I can do whatever I want today.”
Basically, the ultimate goal is to own your own time.
The ability to do what you want, when you want, with who you want, for as long as you want, is the primary goal.
The goal of financial freedom is time freedom.
When you own your time, and your needs are taken care of, you are able to use your time to do work that truly matters, mentor others, give back, teach, heal others without the pressures of making rent and putting food on the table.
