What It Means To Be Financially Free

When we are financially free, we are also free from worry.

Budgeting and saving money is no easy feat. It takes time, dedication, planning, and self-control.

It’s truly hard work to achieve that level of discipline, and at times it can start to weigh heavily. So if you’re sitting here asking yourself what’s the point of it all, I have one simple, seven-letter word for you: freedom. We do this work in order to achieve financial freedom, but there are many other types of freedom we gain in return. 

When we are financially free, we are also free from worry. All of our financial-related stresses and anxieties start melting away, leaving us with more time, energy, and money to do things we love. This allows us the freedom to do what we want to do, and to be who we want to be. When we have financial woes, it trickles down into so many areas of our lives, including our marriage, relationships, and health. You deserve to feel like your best self so that you can then in turn start truly living your best life. 

Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, “In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved,” and what wise words these are. There is so much power to be had in achieving your own freedom. If someone else were to hand you the keys to this freedom, you would never essentially be free because that freedom would always come with a cost. There would always be a catch, or you would always be living life on someone else’s terms. However, when we create our own freedom, that is where our true power lies. When we prove to ourselves that we can not only survive, but thrive, that how we take back the reins and regain control over our own lives. That sovereignty then fuels us, pushing us to continue to take inspired action and create lasting change.  

In Janis Joplin’s hit song, “Me and Bobby McGee,” Joplin sings the words, “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.” When you set yourself up for success through positive routines, it is such a liberating feeling. When you have achieved financial freedom, you will feel as though you have nothing left to lose, and only so much more to gain. So if you’re on the road to re-writing your financial future, financial coaching can be a huge leap in the right direction. It all starts by taking the first step!
