I try to live life with no regrets. However, it’s hard to accomplish because I make mistakes (a lot). I can’t know with confidence that a decision that I made when I was in my late-10s were sound decisions nor do I know the decisions I make today are sound. I haven’t experienced a lot yet so I have no idea if I made or am making the correct choices. Reflecting back, I had a couple of decisions that I wished I had done differently. I will lay out life goals to achieve in my 20s to build wealth and not have regrets in my late 20’s or 30s. Here are goals to accomplish so in 5 years, you don’t feel the painful feeling of regret. Do something TODAY so five years out, you have the same regrets THEN.
It’s never about how much you make but how much you keep. There’s been a plethora of instances where lottery winners, professional sports players, and celebrities who’ve earned an obscene amount of money have gone bankrupt and broke. I’m not talking about lottery winners with a 6 figure winnings, I’m talking about people who’ve won/made 7 – 8 figures worth of money. How do they go bankrupt?!
I like to work harder than the average Joe when it comes to getting my stuff done. I double majored, triple minored, took 2 jobs throughout college, and joined a mentorship program to mentor underclassmen transitioning into college. My summers were spent in internships and working out, making sure that the dreaded Sarcopenia doesn’t hit me in my 30s and beyond as extensively as someone who hasn’t been physically active.
Time flew by and I’m excited to issue a second monthly blog report! A lot of things happened in July and since my last blog update. It’s been rewarding and even tiring at times but the thought that I’m helping just one person out in the internet world with their finances keeps me going as I am passionate about finance. I also want to be transparent as much as possible with my blog so here goes.
ANYBODY can reach financial freedom. It’s a matter of wanting it badly enough. You don’t need high levels of income, have more than 168 hours in a week to work, or be the smartest person in the room. The difference between a rich person and an average person are choices. It’s YOU who decides whether you have a great future or a mediocre one. The best part? You control it.
