The need for financial independence

When it comes to financial independence, people often talk about increased salary or how much they need for a comfortable retirement. 

It’s good to have goals for your savings, income and retirement fund, but it’s unhelpful when we don’t consider why we’re working towards financial independence in the first place.

Too many blogs that promote financial independence focus excessively on luxury items. However, it's a serious risk when you get addicted to consumerism. It leads to a cycle of earning more and spending more.

Many people earn millions, spend millions and still feel they're broke. But, whether you're earning millions or the average wage - if your lifestyle exceeds your income, you'll always live paycheck to paycheck. So when you're earning more, avoid spending more.

More money doesn’t always mean financial independence

More money doesn't mean you're financially free. Worse, when we earn more, we often have more problems. 

Chasing after money means sacrificing other things, such as your time, friends and energy, so you may barely enjoy life. 

Adopting a long-term mindset to building wealth means you don't have to be in a hurry. You can say no to "opportunities" that pay well but don't give you the life you want.
