You Know You Have Financial Freedom When…

Since it is July 4th – Independence Day for the United States of America, I thought it would be great to share some ways that you KNOW that you have Financial Freedom!

You know you have financial freedom when …

  • You forget when payday is.
  • The car completely blows up, and you can just go pay cash for another one.
  • You are not afraid to tell your manager that he/she is wrong and that there is a better way.  (I have seen many people who are afraid to tell their manager this for fear of retribution or loss of their job.  That’s too bad. I believe that most managers love to have their employees tell them when they are wrong!)
  • You lose your income and your healthy savings account allows you to live for months without incurring any new debt.
  • You lose the fear of negotiating a better deal.  (If anything costs more than $100, it is worth negotiating – including with services like doctors, dentists, chiropractors, massage therapists, house cleaning, cable, etc.
  • Bill paying time takes a total of 30 minutes a month.
  • You can take the job you were put on earth to do … regardless of the income potential!
  • You have enough.  “Enough” does not have a number, but you have financial freedom when you KNOW you have “enough.”

What are some others you would add to this?

Finish the sentence …  “You know you have financial freedom when …”

    …when you realise you live in the freest country the world has ever known, that nobody forced you to get into debt, yet whatever your circumstances you always have the opportunity and responsibility to yourself to keep moving forward with your finances
