I feel so bad for not inviting you my friends; a lot of things that you should have heard by yourself. So I'm compelled to share my personal note, jotted during the event, with you.
So, I was at "Repositioning for advantages" today - a practical financial intelligence training. Wow, wower, wowest. Thumbs up to Abiodun Alafe and co for putting the program together.
Apart from meeting some great individuals, I also went home with hands-on training on how to lead a better financially free life. I feel so bad for not inviting you my friends; a lot of things that you should have heard by yourself. So I'm compelled to share my personal note, jotted during the event, with you.
Here's my personal note: delivered as promised (slightly edited)
Question: The third diagram, The rich? What's the difference in being financially free and being rich? I just want to be rich? Is that not everyone's desire?
Everything is created twice, first in thought, then in reality. Everything is energy. Thoughts are energy.
During Mrs. Gbonjubola Sanni’s session
I need to meet Mrs. Gbonjubola Sanni. She engages and teaches kids.
We don't get formal training on how money works. That's a big challenge. What we do most times is reverse budgeting, we don't do budgeting.
Why do we need to work with adults? If you don't help the adults, they won't be able to help the children.
For every topic that's important to you, you must have read as many books as your age.
Question: What's your goal in 25 years?
In 25 years, I want to have lived 10 yrs without needing to worry about money.
Your goal should not be financial security but financial freedom. Goal should be in the direction of not needing to work every day.
Have a budget for the future. Many things we think are assets are not. They are not assets until they bring money for you.
Begin to convert your money into assets. If I have a phone and I use it for business, then it's an asset; else it's a liability.
It's about sitting back and thinking about what you want to do, it's not about hard work. People that work hardest are the least paid.
Saving all the money you make isn't what makes you rich. How much you earn isn't what makes you rich. It's your decision (and actions?)
Economics is not all true. Resources for financial freedom aren’t scares: it's available everywhere.
The disadvantages in your life aren’t setbacks, they are actually stepping stones.
Your financial issues aren’t coming from anybody. You have no enemies of financial freedom. You are your only enemy. Our financial irresponsibility causes whatever mess we are inn.
A goal without a plan is merely a wish. What's your roadmap?
When you make the decision, you begin to attract the resources. Fill yourself up with the right information.
