The American Dream has had many meanings over the centuries but recently has settled on having financial freedom. That still has many meanings but overall, it is having the money to do what you want, when you want. Sounds great, right? Fortunately, it isn’t as difficult as everyone thinks it is. To get to you goal, you must have financial fitness. Just as with physical fitness, you need to develop solid financial habits. Those people you see gracing the covers of magazines, including Sports Illustrated and Forbes, got there by cultivating habits.
How Can Habits Give You Financial Freedom?
Good habits help to build your financial fitness. There have been many people who have come to their demise, both physically and financially, through eating out. They are eating their way into the poorhouse. People need to start getting into their own kitchens. Once individuals begin seeing what financially unhealthy habits they have, they will be able to dig deep and form new, healthy habits. Another common bad habit is spontaneous spending. To become better at financial fitness, you have to become a better planner. You have to budget your money. If you aren’t spending it on those random, “I have to have this now” moments, you’ll see your money actually goes a lot further than you had thought.
Instead of heading out, consider planning your nights with a home cooked meal and spending an evening on the couch watching Netflix. Soon, your bank account will start smiling too and you will have won the difficult financial fitness battle. You will be that much closer to the American Dream of financial freedom.
