What does Wealth mean to you?
This may seem like a loaded question and there are a large number of thoughts of what Wealth means. We each have our own definition of Weatlh. We will be sharing the steps we are taking and the planning that goes into our project along the way.
Our Goal is to build a Sustainable Retreat Estate. The purpose of this estate is to help widows, orphans, single mothers and fathers as well as veterans and others. We work on ourselves and meet amazing people who also have a desire to live life financially independent. Along the way, I have met and continue to meet others who are choosing to live Healthy: Physically, Financially, Emotionally and Spiritually. We are all connected in one form or another. Together, we can share our knowledge and skills while lifting each other up. Let’s start this journey now!
Darren Hardy shares his thoughts about wealth.
Darren Hardy is an American author, keynote speaker, advisor, and former publisher of SUCCESS magazine. Hardy is a New York Times best-selling author, who wrote The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster and The Compound Effect. He shared this definition of Financial Independence by Jim Rohn on his Darren Daily morning posts to help others invest in themselves. “Financial Independence: The ability to live from the income of your own investments alone.”
I have come to understand that Wealth and Abundance is in our mindset and attitude. How do you want to live? Modestly or Extravagantly? There is no wrong or right answer in your decision, it is your decision. All you have to do is have a plan!
The three tips to attain your desired lifestyle
Darren Hardy shared three tips to help you build your chosen lifestyle.
- Increase your income with out increasing your lifestyle in equal proportion. In other words, once you choose your lifestyle, increase your income to pay for what you chose. Live to build and grow your income to become financially independent while enjoying what you are building.
- Pay yourself first. However, to be financially independent, you need to recover from having credit card debt and other financial burdens that do not lead to your lifestyle goals. Then you can invest at least 10% of your income into your financial goal.
- Reinvest in yourself. Make a decision to become wealthy to provide for your financial independence. You will be able to reach your goals and make a difference in other peoples lives also.
Success is in the plan and systems that you create
When traveling on a journey, you want to have a plan and systems to help you reach your destination. Make sure you know where you are and where you want to end up. To reach your destination, build your plan to include key items and resources that will help you reach your destination or goal.
I will be sharing those key items in the next blog post and email. Please leave a comment if there is any specific area that you want help in. Such as
the areas of running your sustainable home/business/farm. The questions, comments that get the most requests will be answered over the next 6 months.
