This is our first installment of our Weekly Roundup Fridays. This week’s post is on Insights on the Road to Financial Independence. Lucky are those who’ve inherited millions from their parents because they won’t have to work themselves out to the bones to earn money. They just need to manage their fortune wisely. But if you’re starting from scratch, the road to wealth isn’t easy; it can’t be traveled fast. Even the initial phase of developing good spending habits is a very challenging feat for many of us. More so if we dream higher and aim to get rich. Like fad dieting, we may falter in our self-discipline and get attracted to the usual luxuries – such as gourmet meals, signature outfit and gadgets – we’ve been trying to avoid. The couple of thousands we’ve been trying to save up for months wasted away just because of that 1-hour hangout in the mall. Coping with the guilt is even harder. At worst, many would just settle down with the idea that wealth isn’t really just for them. Many of us may say “I don’t deserve it” and “I just don’t have what it takes” as we totally drift away from the financial road we’ve started to tread. The next thing we realize is that we’re back to the normal life of splurging and impulsive spending again. Like all other goals, achieving financial independence requires self-awareness, self-discipline and personal strategies to develop good habits permanently. It also helps to apply the insights below to help you strike a balance between good personal financial management and fun. These ideas might also motivate you to continue your journey toward wealth. “Your past doesn’t determine your future” If you’ve done the “one day millionaire act” a couple of times, make sure to identify your spending triggers to stay away from these occasions. Be aware of your own weaknesses and strengths. Then, get over your past mistakes and learn to put your best foot forward at all times. It might also help to use your idle time on productive, income-generating endeavors. In her post entitled 8 businesses you can do on weekends, KC Kalpo says there are actually hobbies that you can turn into a source of income. This includes: Writing Web Development Photography Baking Graphic Designing Many actually do these on a daily basis just to earn extra cash. If you want to follow suit, you might like to use these 5 mobile apps to boost your productivity: Google Docs – to store your files in one single, secure storage Evernote – to take notes more efficiently Box – to share documents and digital files conveniently with colleagues Toggl – to track your time spent on a specific task Instapaper – to save nice content for reading on your idle time “Unless you want a luxury trip, it’s really not necessary to be rich to travel.” It’s also important to give yourself a treat every once in a while. Give yourself that much craved cup of Starbucks coffee or designer dress if you’ve achieved something at work. However, retail therapy is really just a short-term treat. If you like to make the most of your bucks, it’s good to use it for travel. As they say, “buy experiences not things.” Travel opens your mind to the different lifestyles people live, such as those in slums or villages. The good thing is that you don’t need to spend your entire savings for your trip. Just visit Lyza R Sabornido’s FAQ.ph Lifestyle column to find interesting information about some of the country’s less trodden vacation spots. As much as she writes about the country’s pristine natural wonders, Lyza R. Sabornido also writes about current events, social issues, stories of places as told by the locals and Filipino culture and foods. “Financial literacy gets you a very long way” The road to wealth always starts with financial literacy and motivation. Earning millions doesn’t really matter that much if you’re also spending more than you’ve earned. So apart from earning more, it’s equally important to learn how to use money wisely. Where should you start? Join events – One of the best ways to educate yourself about money is to join events and forums. That being said, Chinkee Tan should be one of the speakers you might want to listen to. According to Tan, it’s wise to think about the positive side of things, always. Never lose sign of the positive things and don’t get sidetracked by the negativities in life. Start developing new habits, especially that of saving and conscious spending. Doing this will allow you to brave through the failures, challenges and trials in life. Positivity can even save you from depression. Tan also mentions about the three core aspects of financial freedom: Vision and Goals – These should be SMART. That is, specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timely. Strategy – Be very clear how you’re going to achieve your goals. It’s highly recommended to create weekly goals and milestones. Action – Carry out what you’ve planned consistently and religiously. Remember, self-discipline is the most important key in building wealth. You should be able to control your money, or else it will control you. Do your own research – Aside from participating in events, it’s also wise to just do your own research. Read at least one money-related article every day. Or if you’re not that into reading, you can watch financial videos. You can browse LoansolutionsPH’s blog MoneyGuru, to stay updated with the latest trends and financial tips.
