Highly paid experts are in a position to choose because they understand that the most valuable asset they have to offer is their time. It’s a great feeling when you are making good money and getting plenty of opportunity that you can easily say YES or NO to the opportunities you wish to act upon.
The financially free expert lifestyle is about getting paid well for offering your advice and having so many opportunities flow to you that you never have to “sell” your services again.
How much money you want to make is a different number for just about everyone. It could be six figures to multi-millions a year. The number doesn’t really matter as much as the fact that you are making a great living and that you feel financially free. Being financially free is worth more than just making a lot of money.
For example, I’ve been broke and I’ve also been a millionaire; yet I understand that neither actually guarantees you financial freedom. Being broke can add a great amount of stress to your life. Often broke people focus too much on their lack of money and therefore they stay broke. Just saying you’re broke will keep you broke!
It takes a massive mind shift to move from broke to a financially free lifestyle. Being a millionaire may feel a lot better, but if you work too hard just to keep up with your lifestyle and/or have no time for your friends and family, it won’t feel very free either.
That’s why financial freedom is now the new wealth. It goes beyond money and millions; it’s about finding that place in your life where money is no longer your main focus because money flows to you freely. It’s a place where you are highly valued and paid very well for your services. It is about living an abundant lifestyle with a lucrative and rewarding career that allows you to leave your mark on the world at the same time. Clients and opportunity flow to you with ease.
Financial freedom allows you to be free of financial stress and worry, free to choose, and free to make a difference in your own way on your own time.
